A Paradise of Harmony, Peace and Delight.Nestled in a lush tropical garden setting, the atmosphere of natural harmony in the Hélène’Spa has been created to provide all our guests with complete comfort and privacy. The warmth of a highly skilled professional team, combined with the quality of the natural Polynesian products used, set Hélène’Spa apart from all others. Recognized by the international press for more than seven years as the reference for a genuine Tahitian Spa, Hélène'Spa is this year again ranked among the most beautiful spas in the world. Completely renovated, Hélène’Spa has also enlarged and enhanced new intimate care spaces opening into private tropical gardens with their myriad of exotic scents. Encompassing more than 1500 m², 9 comfortable and luxurious spaces are dedicated to providing our Tahitian cares for guests individually or as a duo. The traditional "river bath" is ideally situated facing the sunset. Two "rain showers" are provided for one or two people, and a "flower bath" filled with freshly cut flowers opens onto a view of Moorea's sacred mountains.

My husband and I went here for out honeymoon. We both got facials with a mini massage. My massage was very gentle and very brief whereas my husbands was quite long and good.

I got a massage here. I had heard that the spa was supposed to be special. It was cute but not anything special. They do only one type of massage which is not really deep massage, but a relaxing type. It was ok, but I was expecting a lot more. So that is why I was disappointed.

Got a very nice Tahitian style 80-minute massage with my wife on our honeymoon. The setup was very simple, but extremely relaxing, the perfect way to start our vacation and get in the rhythm with island time. We stayed at the intercontinental and got a very nice 20% off letter from the hotel for use at the spa. I would... More

We did the "Taurumi Maohi" traditional Polynesian massage. Very relaxing massage. Not much focus of trigger areas, more just promoting blood flow. Treatment was very pricey at 15,500 francs for 50 minutes. Recommended if you have the budget for it.

I received a complete spa package yesterday that was delightful. My masseuse "Bella" was wonderful, she knows exactly how to pamper her clients with a relaxing experience. If I was only rating "Bella" I would rate 5 stars. However, my rating of only 2 is due to the surroundings of the spa. The spa is located off of a road... More

The massage was actually very good, but the facial treatment was really only kind of average. In addition, it's very expensive, and I don't believe that it deserves to be called the best spa in the South Sea.
