Best place to stay at beautiful island Huahine. Many thanks to Franck (owner of pension) for all - outstanding food, beautiful garden where bungalows are and kind approach to us with many useful advices how to make our stay perfect. There's also possibility to rent kayak or scooter and explore the beauty of the island.

There's not much to say except a list of surprises that were waiting for us at the Pension Tupuna in Huahine: - we arrived and dined right away taking advantage of the great talent of the guys managing the Pension. Food was delicious, typical, made with fresh ingredients from their place, and did I say delicious already? - The discussion... More

Don't look any further for paradise, you found it ! Tupuna is a great family pension where the place is just amazing and so far away from all the touristic cliches and mass tourism. The four bungalows are home made, all different and all gorgeous. Every morning the breakfast is a feast with fresh fruit straight from the garden and... More

Like other reviewers have said, this is very opposite of the resorts you may have stayed at on Tahiti or Moorea. What we loved: Loretta and Franck, the owners were very polite, and Franck would converse with us and ask/answer all questions we had regarding anything from polynesia cultures to weather in Huahine. We had the MOST FANTASTIC coconut wahoo... More

We travelled for a month in polynesia and stayed in 7 pensions and this is by far our favourite. First it is secluded so it is so peaceful down there. You can just forget the real world. Every bungalows (fares) are unique and wonderfully decorated. The bathrooms are just the most original and really what I expected from Polynesia. The... More

Compared to many excessive battery-farm-hotels on wind- and leeward Islands, Pension Tupuna has the opposite: Real privacy, lovely cabins, fantastic food, friendly hosts and – the best – felt far away from Polynesian overpriced mass tourism. One hour from Pape'ete or just a short parable-flight from Tahiti’s celebrity Bora-Bora, on Huahine we’ve found authentic beauty. Embedded in a lush tropical... More

Hi guys, just one note if you are looking for a scuba diving option in Huahine: go to Morgan. His office is in the Tupuna pension, but he can come pick you up in your hotel. Morgan knows his stuff (we saw the sharks and rays he promised...) and the experience is really nice because he is just a great... More
