Moorea Island house description

Located on Moorea serene island, just above the luxurious Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora Beach resort, this 4 bedroom Mediterranean villa is the perfect tropical getaway.
The Marama Villa is one of the most spacious and comfortable homes in French Polynesia and features some of the most breathtaking views the South Seas have to offer.
Villa Marama is integrated seamlessly into the surrounding landscape and its design creates an intimate ambiance. Views of the lagoon and the island of Tahiti can be enjoyed from every room.

Villa Marama extends on a large plot of land, cascading onto three levels in order to maximize the views.

Its four bedrooms have large sliding doors that open wide to the lush flora, tropical sun and the sounds of the surrounding environment. This flow of nature merges with open living/dining/kitchen areas of the home blending into a harmonious, tranquil setting.

All four bedrooms have air conditioning, en-suite bathrooms and private separate entrances. (Air conditionning is set to work at night only - for an all day A/C access an extra fee will be charged)

The upper level living area includes a dining table for 6-8, a comfortable sofa and chairs and plenty of room to relax and entertain. Large sliding doors open the space up to the covered patio allowing in the fresh breezes. The outdoor patio has a dining table for 8 people, a large sofa to relax or just gaze at the view over the channel between Moorea and its sister island, Tahiti.

MIDDLE LEVEL

Three of the Villa Marama’s bedrooms are located on this level, giving privacy from the upper level living and kitchen areas.

ABOUT VILLA MARAMA

The Villa Marama was built as one of the first home in the very coveted Bel Air Residence by its present owners to escape the faster paced style of living of Papeete, French Polynesia’s capital.

The origin of the name Villa Marama -

The Villa Marama takes its name from ancestral and romantic origins. The channel between Tahiti and Moorea was once called the “Marama Sea”, meaning the “Moonlight Sea” (or literally “Sea of the Moon”). This channel was for long a large part of our family’s history and life as long before Moorea became the coveted touristic spot it is today, it remained mostly inhabited by locals who were detached from the main island of Tahiti. Ferries and freight developed over the years to bring in commuters and business to this piece of paradise and allow everyone to enjoy its beauty. Our family is proud to be some of the pioneers that enabled this transformation while trying to preserve its serenity. Until a few years ago, we have served the population of Moorea by providing them sea transportation to and from the island of Tahiti.

It is in honor of the name our ancestors gave to the channel the Villa offers views onto and its connection to the owner family’s history that they named this beautiful home the Villa Marama.
