Excellent, well managed hotel and comfortable rooms with great view of the lagoon waters. Food and service was 4-5 stars. We are experienced divers (1500ea) & snorkelers all over the world and really enjoyed our stay at Kia Ora. But this is not a dive resort for the experienced. We did two drift dives a short boat ride from hotel from ocean side thru channel into the lagoon. Excellent vis, a few sharks, moderate fish life, too fast current for photography which is ok too. This hotel is for relaxation and lagoon swimming.
