Le Taha’a is an absolute gem and was the highlight our trip to French Polynesia!! My husband and I vacationed in French Polynesia for our honeymoon 5 years ago and loved Tahiti so much that we came back this past October. Previously we only stayed in Moorea but this time

We’ve been to Bora Bora (Four Seasons) and have a new favorite. More chill and authentic. Wonderful staff. Amazing food. We opted for beach villa 49 instead of a room over the water. Great choice due an amazing beach and view. Kudos to management. Very well run. I hope to

We stayed here from January 1st - 5th. The location is unbeatable. We stayed in overwater bungalow #46 (third from the shore). It was a sunset view category. We had two major complaints but the positives far outweigh the negatives. BRING WATER SHOES and your own snorkel gear.

What a wonderful review on trip advisor, thank you. We are glad that, except the high prices of the food and drinks, the team was able to bring you a good experience. Due to the location, it is true that in French Polynesia food and drinks are more expensive than most of the other places in the world. The hotel provides complimentary snorkeling equipment’s and water shoes at the pool boy area, the equipment is disinfected after each use. It will be a pleasure to welcome you back under the beautiful milky way of Taha’a. Mauruuru Roa Noémie Lafite - Guest Relations Manager

My wife and I recently returned from the most fantastic trip of our lives. We enjoyed 12 nights in French Polynesia: 6 nights in Bora Bora at the St. Regis and 6 nights in Tahaa at Le Tahaa. I can honestly say that I enjoyed them both, but they are like night and day opposites!

We booked a 2 night stay before going on a catamaran yacht with 2 other couples. We have been to Bora Bora before and we wanted to experience a different island. Le Tahaa was listed as a romantic getaway resort. However, upon arrival, there were children. Screaming. Poorly

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are very sorry to know that the presence of kids annoyed you during your stay at the Hotel. Most of our guests are couple and we have a very few families coming at the resort. As you can see on the other reviews, the quietness and peacefulness of the hotel are always mentioned. We are glad that except these issues you liked the food and the coral garden. We hope that you enjoyed the rest of your stay in French Polynesia, Mauruuru Roa, Noémie Lafite - Guest Relations Manager

Go to their website and you’ll see Contact information to email them. Tell them you want to discuss honeymoon options at Le Tahaa. The staff are excellent. We honeymooned there three years ago and have now made it annual tradition to go back every year. I’m also a professional travel advisor and it’s one of the best places for my clients going to French Polynesia.

Take a tour of the island of Taha'a (we loved Arii Moana Tours. You can find them here in TripAdvisor). Also, the drift snorkeling in the coral garden right off Le Taha'a resort is a major attraction in itself. You can also do what we did and spend a day on the island of Raiatea, which is where the airport is anyway. You can rent a car for just a half day and drive down to Marae Taputapuatea, the most sacred site in the entire Polynesian triangle. If you get bored easily, spend a few days on Bora Bora first, then fly from there to Raiatea and get picked up by Le Taha'a and spend just 3 nights there. There is no boat or ferry that runs between the two islands, though.

They have a beautiful sand beach where you can just lay back and enjoy the amazing views. The water is about knee high so you could wade in the water for a distance. There is also a reef for snorkeling a short distance from the beach which is a M U S T , the most amazing fish crystal clear water and the current simply takes you for a swim Enjoy

Hotel staff told us it’s not that of a difference. We stayed 3 nights, only had time for breakfast on the last day, otherwise too busy with snorkeling / excursions. We also ate at the restaurant for dinner only once - rest of the time we ordered room delivery. I’m often exhausted and sleepy at the end of the day, so I would prefer waiting for my food to arrive in my bathrobe than having to dress to go to a restaurant. An appetizer is between 2300-3000XPF, a main is between 3500-6000XPF, a dessert is around 1900xpf. Lunch at La Plage is great, about 2300-3000xpf for appetizer, 3000xpf for sandwich, 4000 for main. However, they have lobster / whole fish for grill on Monday and Thursday noon. A whole lobster at 1.45kg for 2 was around 12500XPF. A fresh coconut from the beach bar was 1500xpf - must be the most expensive coconut I’ve ever had in my travels around the world. about water - bottled sparkling water was 890xpf per bottle. We don’t drink alcohol so I don’t remember wine cost.

Book a flight to Raitea, and the hotel can arrange a transfer from Raitea airport to the hotel via boat.
