When most couples think of amazing spots to get married, they automatically think Bora Bora. My wife and I, however, like to take the less beaten path and picked the quaint island of Huahine for our nuptials. We were married at the Mai Tai La Pita Village hotel and stayed four nights. Eric and the staff were wonderful. Heia was...

This place is terrible. I got food poisoned here; Eric the manager said I was the first but the local doctor said he saw many people sickened from food from this hotel. Lighting in the room is awful, sitting on deck and you will be bitten by mosquitos. No screen doors, lounge chairs by their tiny pool are very uncomfortable...

We stayed at the Maitai La Pita the last night of our stay on Huahine to celebrate our anniversary. It is one of only three 'hotels' on the island. We were pleased on all levels. Beautiful, very modern accomodations, air conditioning (a rarity), yet keeping with the french polynesian style and culture. Pool was very nice, beach sandy - also...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A boundless tropical garden, the secret island of Huahine is a natural sanctuary with many archaeological wonders and other landmarks of its rich Polynesian culture and history. Set on a white sand beach, the Hotel Maitai Lapita Village is composed of thirty bungalows, half of them set around a natural spring pond covered with water lilies. The restaurant, bar and pool face the lagoon and a magnificent white sand beach that borders the crystal clear lagoon. The sunsets here are spectacular and offer a panoramic view of the three other Leeward Islands: Raiatea, Tahaa and Bora-Bora. Conveniently located at the entrance of Fare, the island's main village, The Maitai Lapita Village is emblematic of the mix of nature and culture that is unique to the enchanting island of Huahine. Here you will discover luxuriant vegetation, private bays and inlets, heavenly motus, but also a rich cultural and historical heritage. This charming hotel village naturally blends into its environment as it combines local traditional materials and modern recycled ones. The "Omai" restaurant offers delectable dishes for all tastes using many local fruits and vegetables and of course fresh fish. The hotel's architecture draws inspiration from the great sailing canoes of the islands ancestors, the Lapita people, and the saga of their migration through the Pacific Islands. Archaeological excavations were undertaken on the very site of the hotel and have contributed greatly to our knowledge of the Lapita people and the way they lived. Many ancient artifacts, some over 1000 years old, were recovered and some are on display in the hotel's own museum gallery, including hooks, domestic tools, ornamental pendants, etc. On the island of Huahine, also called "memory island," many monuments from the pre-European era can easily be visited: open air temples (marae), ancient lake dwelling villages, a great attraction to do with a tour guide. These well preserved sites are among the largest in French Polynesia. ... more   less
