Full accommodation information

Resting on the island of Tautau, this beachfront resort is bedecked with a string of Overwater Villas and Beach Bungalows that number 58 in total, each bestowing views of the sunset or islands of Bora Bora and Taha’a.

Aside from the sand and sea, guests can also spend their days at the hotel’s tennis courts, lagoon-style swimming pool, dive centre, gym and watersports equipment, with the chance to make day trips to nearby islands. There are then three restaurants and two bars to choose from, with cultural performances taking place once a week, accompanied by a typical buffet feast.

This Relais & Chateaux hotel in French Polynesia is as beautifully designed as you would expect from the prestigious brand. Discover a sophisticated melange of wooden structures topped with thatched roofs and kitted out with luxe features such as rain showers, and private decks leading straight out onto the beach or into the sea.

Beyond the hotel itself, the islands of Taha’a and Tautau are perfumed with the scent of vanilla, as this treasured ingredient grows bountifully across the lush landscapes of this part of French Polynesia. You can enjoy an eco-tour or 4x4 excursion to discover more of the islands, or perhaps explore underwater and come face to face with all manner of tropical marine life.

Then, to top it all off, the hotel’s wonderfully warm service perfectly complements this gorgeous environment, with staff ensuring that your sojourn here in Le Taha’a is one you’ll never forget.
