The hotel is located on the western end of the bay of Taiohae and offers a breathtaking view over the blue bay and its stunning montainous surroundings. The bungalows are held in wooden Marquesan-Polynesian style and are decorated by local artists. Absolutely loved the ambience! The staff was super friendly and did their best to make you feel comfortable. The... More

I stated in the Nuku Hiva Pearl Lodge four nights in April. I was worried because my French is just so-so, but most of the staff there spoke some English. I was staying with an inclusive package that included breakfast and dinner and three excursions. They were quiet a bargain when everything was said and done. The rooms never get... More

Nuku Hiva is one of the islands which remained somewhat and largely virgin. It is clean and the roads are good compared with the other in Marquesas. Exceptional landscapes and the locals focus on keeping their historical and cultural heritage. The population is mostly Maori, so the culture it belongs to they almost entirely.

The Pearl Lodge bungalows are the best accommodations on the island. The views are spectacular, 260 degree views from the bungalows of various bays. During the day, you can hire a boat to various locations, including to the beach that leads to a hike to Vaiipo Falls, and the other direction to where a Survivor season was once filmed. The...

The pay-off for our climb up to the highest of the cabins (#16) was a superb view of the bay. We enjoyed enormously our 7 days stay, which we did half-board. The amenities in the cabin were rustic lux, i.e., quite comfortable considering one is not in a place with ready access to all luxuries. As the temperature was quite... More

The Marquesas are beautiful remote islands and are well worth the visit. The hotel is lovely with the rooms dotted over the hillside. The food was good (excellent melting chocolate puddings) but the cocktails were terrible (they had no idea how to make them). We asked to sign-off the meals each night, but they were all too laid back to... More

My wife and I began our 20 year anniversary celebration at this spot. We continued on to Moorea and Bora Bora, staying a week in each location. The Marquesas Islands are beautiful, quiet and isolated. If you are looking for beach time, this is NOT the place...they are really small & not so sandy. But if you are looking for... More

For those who want a South Seas alternative to a bungalow over the water, try the Pearl Lodge in Nuku Hiva, Marquesas Islands. The tours are what makes this place special: the lush valley where Herman Melville was inspired to write "Typee" or the idyllic bay that charmed Robert Louis Stevenson. And you won't find finer accommodations in Nuku Hiva... More
