LE TAHAA ISLAND RESORT & SPA
Le Taha'a Island Resort & Spa is a 5-star property, located on a "motu" islet, a 35-minute navigation from the Raiatea Airport (transfers operated by the resort's shuttle boats) and a 5-minute boat ride from the village of Tapuamu (free transfers from the resort) on the main island of Taha'a. The ultimate way to connect between Taha'a and Bora Bora is definitely by helicopter. Beyond being an easy and quick transfer, this 14-minute flight will be an excursion of pure beauty as you fly above the stunningly gorgeous Tahitian lagoons. All suites and villas at Le Taha'a are built in the pure Polynesian tradition, exquisitely blending thatched pandanus roofs, bamboo, exotic woods, stones, corals, Marquesan "tapa" cloths, and woven coconut "nape" ropes. Whether on the beach or above the shimmering lagoon, you will enjoy the idyllic surroundings and the tropical outdoor lifestyle Le Taha'a offers. Refined elegance and bare luxury. The Overwater Suites all have the same layout, the difference being the location, the views, and the amenities. One main point for all though is the unsurpassed views of the sparkling lagoon, kaleidoscope of blues. The Taha’a Overwater Suite offers the great feeling of being suspended above the crystal-clear lagoon with exquisite views of the lush Vanilla Island. With views of the silhouette of Bora Bora, the Coral Garden and chain of ‘motu’ islets, the Bora Bora Overwater Suite is without a doubt a favorite.
VAHINE ISLAND - PRIVATE ISLAND RESORT
This Tahiti hotel in Taha'a is located in a paradise-like setting on the Motu Tu Vahine (Island of the Woman), a private little island of 23 acres, in the middle of the lagoon of Tahaa. The Vahine Island, Private Island Resort has everything to make your stay in paradise an unforgettable one. White sand beaches, a magnificent coconut grove full of light and shadows, a coral garden full of underwater splendors, a full range of blue hues splashed across the lagoon, and a backdrop of superb sunsets over Bora Bora will take your breath away and remain forever etched in your memories of this unbelievable place. Vahine Island offers 3 types of lodging : 3 overwater "farés" (local style overwater bungalows) on the lagoon, 3 beach "farés," and 3 deluxe suite "farés".
Accommodations are spaced apart and blend in with the environment. The Polynesian bungalows are stylish and made of local wood and materials.
Air conditioning is available in all of the bungalows and we provide complimentary Internet Wifi & Ethernet cable connection. In order to fully enjoy the lagoon and it's abundant life there is an "aquarium table" so that you may observe and feed the multitude of exotic fish which flourish beneath the overwater bungalow. Vahine Island is one of those exceptional spots that steps outside of time, unique and spellbinding, where calm and sensuality harmonize with charm and serenity.
