The Moana beach located on Matira Point was one of the first hotels on the island of Bora Bora to develop overwater bungalows with a very Polynesian style.

The basic project consisted of a renovation of all the existing bungalows (41 overwater bungalows and 10 beach bungalows) and an extension of 13 additional bungalows (9 overwater and 4 on the beach) including 2 suites.

The architecture of the "bungalow" has been completely revisited as much in layout, wall cladding and floors, as in furniture and decoration, while maintaining the basic identity. The decoration work was done as an extension of the initial concepts.

The openings on the outside have been redesigned to improve lighting (installation of Naco to the lounge, wooden braided shutters for the bedroom and opal glass for the bathroom).

Being the owner's wish having a resort much more comfortable and up-to-day. A complete reorganization of the "bathroom" space was made to integrate a shower in addition to the existing bathtub. Thus, the outdoor deck has been extended and refitted.

The following program was the renovation of the common areas with the expansion and reorganization of the bar's restaurant.

Subsequently, we completed a "fare" activities, a shop, an expansion of the kitchens and offices and the reception's renovation.

The construction work has been carried out in several phases considering the continuous exploitation during construction.
