Last summer, during our honeymoon, we spent 5 days in this family pension and we're absolutelly satisfied: Joachim and his family are so good people and they always find some time to take care of you, proposing everyday somethink new for your stay. The place, as all Fakarawa, is special and perfect for all the peolple that aren't looking for... More

We had a great time there! Joachim and Havaiki are wondeful hosts, the service is really good and food is delicious! The sea in front of the bungalows is crystal clear, you just want to dive in there!

I have been home now for 2 weeks from an AMAZING dive trip vacation to Tahiti, Rangiroa, and Fakarava. Simple words cannot express my stay on Fakarava. My stay at Maitai Rangiroa was good and the diving was great, BUT my stay at Havaiki Pearl and the incredible diving at Fakarava simply blew all the other competition completely out of... More

Nice pension huts along the beach. You can find sandwiches at SGD 7 in the guesthouse. It's a family run low-cost guesthouse and their hospitality was incredibly warm & graceful. The decoration was full of charm. At the pearl farm in Favaraka, they showed us how they string the live shells into a sock-look net beneath the clear seabed. Then... More

I used the Havaiki Pearl Guest House as home base for a week of scuba diving on the island. I’m happy to report that I had almost as good of a time above water as below. The specifics: Check-in: You don’t really “check-in” at this place as much as you “arrive.” I really didn’t know what to expect when the... More

This place was clean, the owners happy and looked out for our needs. The food was excellent and we had a wonderful time. My wife, our 50 year old daughter and myself were there. We had all that on could ask for and were pleased.

Havaiki was simply the most amazing retreat from the rest of the world. Joaquim the owner does his absolute best to plan excursions out to sea and other tours of the island, and was very accommodating. His son Hugo is also very helpful and we made friends very quickly. If you are looking for the most beautiful place on earth,... More

Havaiki Pearl farm was the most beautiful and charming place we stayed at when we spent 4 weeks in French Polynesia! Joachim made us feel more than welcome and was incredibly attentive and nice. He and his wife have created a place full of charme, love for details (shells and fresh flowers everywhere), great dinner and breakfast, interesting pearl farm... More

My husband and I stayed at Havaiki for 4 nights. We are both divers and this came highly recommended from tripadvisor reviews and top dive in Fakarava. Joachim, his wife and his staff make you feel right at home. This is a jewel of a place in the middle of paradise. We were concerned, having stayed in resorts previously, but... More

We spent four nights at Havaiki, a laid back guest house with lovely owners and helpful staff, everything was clean and tidy, the bungalow we had was right on the beach two steps and you were in crystal clear water, this bungalow was like new, had A/C and hot water and the most amazing lagoon views which were changing all...
