Rangiroa and its stunning lagoon

Located 350 km north-east of Society Islands and 1 hour by plane from Tahiti and Bora Bora, Rangiroa Atoll is the largest atoll in French Polynesia and the 2nd largest atoll in the world. Its lagoon, which covers an area of 1,640 km², is home to a diverse marine life that makes Rangiroa one of the best diving destinations in the world. If you need a change of scenery, you can’t go wrong with islands featuring exuberant coral reefs, blue and green lagoons, and white-sand beaches surrounding the wild motus, i.e. reef islets formed by broken coral and sand.

Beyond these enchanting landscapes, Rangiroa reveals another side of French Polynesia. On this island at the end of the world, the locals are welcoming and adventure knows no bounds. The best way to explore is by bike or motor scooter and discover the island’s picturesque villages, the only vineyard in French Polynesia, a pearl farm, and Tiputa Pass, where dolphins like to put on a show. An AUTHENTIC and idyllic island with an unparalleled atmosphere.

A sophisticated destination with an undeniably Polynesian character

Founded in 1972 on Rangiroa atoll in the Tuamotu archipelago, Hotel Kia Ora Resort & Spa is the archipelago’s crowning attraction. The resort has 60 luxury bungalows nestled in a huge coconut plantation, on the beach and above the breathtaking lagoon. The lagoon is huge – so huge that locals insist that the whole of Tahiti would fit into it. It is an idyllic lagoon that covers 1,640 m² and is surrounded by wild islets and spectacular beaches
