Designed by Yohji Yamamoto and renovated in 2012, Le Paradis d’Ouvéa, only hotel of the island, provides 6 bungalows categories on the beach or on the heart of the garden. The hotel has 34 air-conditioned bungalows in a unique genuine environment.
The garden bungalows are located on luxurious vegetation of Ouvea and the lagoon bungalow and spa paradise bungalows are ideally located on the spectacular Mouli beach, offers an unobstructed view on the most beautiful lagoon, of the world.
This is an extraordinary place to be. The main islands of Ouvea form a huge crescent along the eastern side of a long extinct underwater volcano. The crescent of islands enfolds one side of an enormous lagoon which is known world-wide for its clear water and its supremely beautiful powder-white sand beaches.
The far side of the lagoon is defined by a myriad of small islands dotted along its western side. The main island of Ouvea, on which the airport is located curves towards the south and narrows dramatically ending at a deep passage between the main island and the smaller island on which Paradis d’Ouvea is located.
A good, solid highway bridge takes the road across the passage and that’s where you enter a most remarkable holiday environment. Paradis d’Ouvea is located on a very narrow part of its island with the lagoon to the north-west and another shallow harbour to the south-east.
The beaches on both sides of the land at this point are what make this place so special. The beaches just go on and on into the distance, so, if long, lonely beach walks any time from sunrise to sunset are your thing, this is as good as it gets.
You know a place is good when you see locals from Noumea over here for weekend breaks from their busy city environment. Paradis d’Ouvea is a favourite with young Japanese Honeymooners too.
Paradis d’Ouvea was totally renovated in 2012 and is in great shape. You will find a good range of hotel services such as Room service, Laundry service, a pleasant Bar, 2 restaurants, Wifi in the public areas (restaurants, reception), a Swimming pool and a deck solarium.
The central facility of the hotel is very pretty and great place to mingle with the other guests. The lagoon and the bay provide superb snorkelling. Other activities (available at extra charge) are Mountain Bike Hire, Lagoon excursions and an Island Tour.
For those people who are not into tours, rental cars can easily be arranged and a very pleasant day or two can be spent exploring Ouvea by car at your own pace.
Paradis d’Ouvea is a place for relaxing, catching up on your book reading (bring a couple of books or your library on your e-reader), rekindling a relationship and rejuvenation of the mind and body. Mid-week is the quietest time. If you are seeking comfortable solitude, you will find it here.
