July 07, 2010
PAPETOAI, French Polynesia - Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort & Spa, honored as the "Top Hotel for Romance in the World" by TripAdvisor's 2010 Travelers' Choice awards, has upped the "fabulous" quotient on its 106 bungalows with the island's most ambitious resort renovation project ever -- totaling more than $11 million -- and unveiling Moorea's very first suite accommodations, all new interiors in each of the resort's 106 bungalows plus the addition of plunge pools in each of the popular garden bungalows.

The resort's $11 million renovation was completed last May with interiors of each of the 106 signature thatched roofed bungalow accommodations - whether overwater or in the garden -- re-imagined in a contemporary island motif. The soothing new color palette uses tropical earth tones that accent a blending of wood, glass, marble, silk and woven materials. The update also includes the addition of high tech entertainment systems.
