Tahiti is a popular tourist destination, especially among those who love the resorts and hotels in French Polynesia. The area contains beautiful coral reefs and blue lagoons that are still unspoiled, and remain as alluring as in the 18th century when western sailors first laid eyes on the region.
Those who have been to the area, know that Tahiti and Moorea are the more naturally gifted regions in French Polynesia, while Bora Bora tends to photograph better. And with an ancestral name that means “created by the gods”, looking at the island helps you understand why the people would have named it that.
But besides enjoying the beautiful beaches and the breathtaking waters of the lagoons, how can you enjoy your vacation there even more? Listed below are some of the best resorts that offer exciting activities to make your Tahiti vacations memorable.
Hotel Le Mahana is located at a truly picturesque location, with a white sand beach fringing the nearby coral garden and the hotel’s pontoon. Just a 30-minute drive from Huahine Fare Airport, the resort offers luxurious bungalows with beautiful terraces and outdoor swimming pools.
The rooms are done in traditional Polynesian fashion, with the rooms having some of the greatest ocean views. You can also enjoy the resort’s gardens and the surrounding terraces if going to the beach doesn’t strike your fancy. If you are looking for adventure, guests can book water activities like kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling, and more.
For those who fancy good food, the resort offers a variety of cuisines, with outdoor seating and great ocean views to complement the Tahitian and European dishes served there. Plus the Avea Bar is a great place for those who fancy a drink to enjoy the evening.
Moorea is one of the most beautiful islands in French Polynesia, and Manava Beach Resort and Spa near Cook’s Bay is a testament to its beauty. The resort provides a variety of luxurious accommodations, including family-friendly duplex bungalows, overwater villas, and garden bungalows with beautiful garden plunge pools.
Each accommodation boasts an outdoor terrace with comfy loungers and direct access to the lagoon for overwater bungalows. Each villa is furnished in the traditional Polynesian architectural style, with onsite amenities such as a communal swimming pool, a state-of-the-art spa, and two different restaurants offering a variety of cuisines.
Plus, every Saturday the resort also hosts a night celebrating Polynesian culture, which features traditional dances and a delectable array of local delicacies.
The Sofitel Moorea Kia Ora resort is located on a private beach in the protected marine region east of Moorea. The resort is ideally located near the Temae Airport as well as the Vaiare ferries, making it easy to reach the luxury resort for your vacation.
The Sofitel Moorea offers over a hundred accommodations, and sleek bungalows built with all-natural materials. This is part of the resort’s drive to be eco-friendly. And these accommodations are divided among overwater villas, beachfront bungalows, or even garden bungalows. The overwater villas are especially wonderful, and one of the largest on offer on the island.
Each villa comes in either one bedroom or two, with multiple bathrooms, a sundeck, lounge, outdoor jacuzzi, and direct access to the turquoise lagoon for when you fancy a dip. Plus, Pure Restaurant offers traditional dance shows every night. You can dine barefoot in the warm sand at the K restaurant under a magnificent structure made of Kahaia wood.
