- The Resort
- Address & Map
The island of Moorea is part of French Polynesia, a French overseas territory spread across an area of the South Pacific as big as Western Europe. The earliest explorers thought they had found paradise when they encountered these bewitching islands, and modern travellers are no less enthralled by their beguiling charm. The most dramatic of these, Moorea lies only a few miles from its sister island Tahiti. Moorea Green Pearl Golf Resort is the finest property development in French Polynesia, not only for its golf course but also for its host of other leisure activities.
The resort incorporates the golf course, while the luxury real estate is still under development. Accommodation is available 5 minutes away at Moorea Pearl Resort & Spa, a charming boutique hotel in traditional Polynesian style. The resort offers comfortable rooms, beach and water bungalows, several with private plunge pools. Additionally, the hotel has the largest infinity pool on the island, a Tahitian SPA, gourmet restaurants and a whole range of land and water activities.
Nicklaus Design's first venture in French Polynesia, the course at Moorea Green Pearl has been designed to preserve the unspoiled natural heritage of one of the most beautiful island in the world, while providing a challenge to the professional and inspiration to the amateur. As Tahiti international airport will be your gateway to Moorea, a stay on the island is a must, as well as a round at Tahiti International Golf Club, a spectacular course carved out of the jungle. Prime accommodation is available on the island at sister property Manava Suite Resort Tahiti.

Bob Baldock (1968) 18 holes - 6,778 yds - Par 72 - SSS 72,6 - Slope 121
As Tahiti international airport will be your gateway to Moorea, a stay on the island is a must, as well as a round at Tahiti International Golf Club, about 20 miles from the capital Papeete and “Tahiti’s best kept secret”. "I like to say we have the best course for 2,500 miles around, said Anderson, general manager of the club "as there aren't any others out here”... which was true till the inauguration of Green Pearlon the neighbouring island of Moorea.
Designed by noted Californian architect Bob Baldock, this spectacular course is carved out of the jungle near Paul Gauguin Museum and Botanical Gardens on the south coast of Tahiti. The course is built on the site of a former cotton plantation and later on a rum factory was operated on the site. The course was named after the son of its first owner Jean Breaud, Olivier Breaud, who was kidnapped and murdered in the early 1980s, one of the few crimes on Tahiti. But the locals still call the course Golf d'Antimaono, for its location.
The islands of Moorea and Tahiti are part of French Polynesia, a French overseas territory spread across an area of the South Pacific as big as Western Europe. From the Greek "poly" (many) and "nesia" (island), Polynesia is made up of several groups of islands, the largest and most populated one being Tahiti in the Society Islands. Captain Cook and the earliest explorers thought they had found paradise when they encountered these bewitching islands, and modern travellers are no less enthralled by their beguiling charm.
Just 17 kilometres off the coast of Tahiti lies an island where the finest property development in the history of French Polynesia is being brought to life. The island is Moorea, one of the most treasured of all the islands in the -world-so colourful, so pure and so idyllic that it can only be described as Paradise. Linked to the mainland via a short air or ferry trip, Temae fits in perfectly with the government's desire to develop yet preserve the special Polynesian way of life.
Crystal-clear water, flourishing green forests, pearl-white beaches and a dominant volcanic peak, Moorea is postcard perfect year round. An average temperature of 27°C with very little fluctuation ensures mild tropical conditions. Mirror-flat oceans and a laid-back island attitude slow time to a pace befitting a well-deserved holiday.
French Polynesia's main island, Tahiti (meaning 'the gathering place') stands out over her surrounding smaller sister-islands like a proud queen, her soaring interior mountains sheltering deep valleys, plummeting waterfalls and crystal streams flowing down to the rugged coastline of black and white sand beaches and blue lagoons. Tahiti is made up of two islands, Tahiti-Nui and Tahiti-Iti, joined by a narrow isthmus.
The international Faa'a Airport is the gateway and Papeete, Tahiti's capital and the commercial hub of French Polynesia. The small, busy city has a French flavour and laid-back atmosphere, worth exploring for its lively Central Market, pearl shops, attractive waterfront and a selection of excellent restaurants. Another must for visitors is to take a round tour along the 73 mile road circling the island, passing historic monuments, museums, beaches, ruined temples, waterfalls, gardens and dramatic scenery.
Tahiti has always attracted French artists, such as musician Jacques Brel, who died here a few years ago, and famous painter Paul Gauguin, who spent the last twelve years of his life in Tahiti. The island has a museum dedicated to his life and work, with reproductions of his Tahiti-period paintings as well as original sculptures, engravings and gouaches. While in the area, a visit to the adjacent Botanical Gardens and the Antimaono International Golf Club is well worth.
