Got the best selection and price of any pearl shop I saw in French Polynesia.

Manapearl is a small shop upstairs in the Fare Tony shopping mall in Papeete. Nothing fancy, but the best selection and prices of any pearl shop I saw on six islands. Mr. Anapa... read more

The shop is in the local market of Papete in Tahiti in the second floor. The ladies there were very kind and helpful. There you can find many different pearls in different prices for all the dudgets!

Manapearl is a small shop upstairs in the Fare Tony shopping mall in Papeete. Nothing fancy, but the best selection and prices of any pearl shop I saw on six islands. Mr. Anapa is helpful and not pushy. I love my pearls.

Going to French Polynesia.. why don't stop at Manapearl in Tahiti and experience an amazing pearls tour @ Anapa's shop? You will be surprised by the kindness and the professionality of Manapearl staff and surely you will find the suitable pearl jewel for you. I've known Manapearl first online with some minor purchases, then I've got the chance to visit... More

We recently visited Manapearl (July 2015) and I purchased a beautiful strand of fine quality Tahitian pearls for an affordable price. It was so helpful to look at their website ahead of time, to get an idea of what I was looking for, and within my price range. (It was so unique to see prices listed). Owner and staff there... More

Well overdue review of Manapearl! We came here un-announced and rang the door bell in Dec 2013. We were not too sure if they needed an appt but Anapa took care of us and made the time to show us his collection. We ended up getting 1 bracelet and 4 pair of earings. He is very reasonable and very friendly!... More

They are very good quality pearls at a fair price. If you go to the store, You'll be very well advised but the best choice is on the net. You will be amazed and won't Know what to choose. It's worth paying a visit and for each purchase a certificate of authenticity is given.

I was looking for some present for my wife for our wedding anniversary long time before our vacation in French Polynesia. I found the web page of Manapearl and it was simply the best web page offering Tahitian pearls for very reasonable prices. All the photos were actual and the products look same on the photos and in the reality.... More

I found Manapearl by reading the recommendations on this site. And I am certainly glad we paid a visit there on our recent cruise. Anapa was a most gracious host, explaining how the pearls were farmed and offering advice and information without any hint of pushiness. His store is not the run-of-the-mill pearl shop. It is a manufacturing workshop where... More

Shopping for pearls in Tahiti is overwhelming. The stores are on top of each other practically, with a huge range of prices making it hard to make a decision. I had found Manapearl online, which let me browse and think about what was on my wishlist over a couple months before my trip. The store is a little hard to... More

Along Papeete’s prime waterfront retail you'll find a plethora of Tahitian Pearl dealers. Before you even *think* about browsing, consider taking the Manapearl tour! Cruisers take note: Manapearl is an easy 5-10 min stroll from the cruise ship piers. We spent a delightful pre-cruise morning here. Manapearl is a bit tricky to find, up one flight in the pleasant, open-air... More
