Great ocean bungalow, great service, food was meh.
We stayed in bungalow 801 and it was great. Privacy and since it's on the end, it has slightly less traffic. The platform for entering the ocean to snorkel is not private, it's community. private steps on each balcony would be much nicer. The problem with this platform is missing steps back up. You literally get pushed by the current all the way back to shore. So there really is no private ocean access. That said it's beautiful in 5-8 feet if water and we saw lots of exciting fish. Food at the entire resort is sub par. The Breakfast buffet was the best meal of the day, but at $45/pp it's pretty steep. Fresh pancakes and eggs were nice. But nothing to brag about. Could be much better with an eggs Benedict or fruit over French toast. Not a show stopper, just wasn’t great. Drinks are also pricy around $20 each and just never tasted right. But, the ocean view makes up for it all. The mini bar was included with water bottles, beer, and soda, and was complimentary restocked each day. This was a nice feature. On entrance on day zero of our stay we found a chilled bottle of champagne, which was a very nice touch. Shower was great. Instant hot water, nice pressure, and two shower heads for different options. Hermès toiletries were nice. Towels for fresh, big, fluffy. King bed/pillows were very comfy. WiFi hit 5mbps, great for browsing, but will not video calls. comp access for four devices. At $700/nt we would return to this resort for the Bungalows only.

Nice spot to rest and unwind in Tahiti!
We changed our stay last minute as our previous accommodations were not what we had expected. This was one of the best decisions we made on our entire trip! We loved the grounds and facilities and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The Ora Beach Hotel made our last few days in Tahiti very enjoyable. Bathrooms are a little dated with doors that don’t quite shut but the room itself was very comfortable. The sand bottom pool is very nice and the beach is right there for folks looking to swim in the ocean. Beautiful view of Mo’orea in the background. Would definitely stay here again.
