This is the best place I have ever been. Eileen is a true genius. The whole place, down to every detail, is rich and sumptuous. The service is outstanding. You feel like you are in a show about lifestyles of the rich and famous. As another reviewer said, I will dream of returning there. The rooms are gorgeous. The small...

I feel very remiss that I have not sent this review earlier especially as Eileen is the most perfect hostess and Fenua Mata 'I" Oa is the most perfect place you could ever imagine in the wonderful paradise that is Moorea,arguably the most beautiful of the Tahitian islands. We actually stayed here in May 2014. Our taxi organised by Eileen...

Hostess Eileen has established an unique boutique hotel on lagoon's edge surrounded by wonderful tropical vegetation, bures very private and wonderfully decorated in Polynesian style. Entirely different to the modern style sterile sameness units!. Then the lounge and dining areas are so very very different. Individually decorated sitting rooms and for dining wonderful little tete a tete alcoves on lagoon's...

Mauruuru Eileen & Serge for another blissful stay in paradise! The magic of Fenua never ceases to take our breath away. This time we truly relaxed even though again we wished we could have stayed longer. We loved the day out on our private motu - the snorkelling, and lunch were divine. We had the stingrays and sharks to ourselves...

This is a five-star place that yes, will cost you accordingly. But it is just perfect in its execution.....perfect, perfect, perfect.

We have enjoyed Polynesian beauty and hospitality in many forms over the years but never quite as much as this. After an adventurous week at a minimalist motu in Tikehau, checking into the lush Fenua Mataiao was a sensory experience. "Luxe, calme, et volupte" is what comes to mind. The rooms are bug free and visually alluring (i'd even say...

In 14 years of activity, it's nothing but it hurts me tremendously had regard to all the love and dedication that I give to my guests. Especially that your commentary "ambiguous" is related to a problem of money...

My wife and I stayed for five nights in the Reva Suite in late May.
