We stayed at Havaiki Pearl after spending 4 days in South Fakarava. Havaiki Pearl is, and we asked locals, the only place you can call a hotel, not a pension. Our beach bungalow was right in front of the lagoon, with A/C, very clean and nicely decorated. Every morning you get fruit, bread, cold cuts and hotcakes. After 7pm you... More

My husband and I celebrated our 10th anniversary with nine glorious days at this lovely boutique resort. The food, the accommodations, the location, and the entire Team were wonderful. From our arrival, during our stay, to our departure, Havaiki staff provided an outstanding personable experience after travelling to many different islands over the years (Hugo, Mateata, Claire, Vairea, Sebastian, Deborah,...

We stayed in a beach front semi-detached bungalow. The room was overall clean and comfortable. However we never got to enjoy the beautiful view of the lagoon. So in front of the small porch of the bungalow was a small beach. During our stay, a family of about 7 or 8 spent most of the beautiful late afternoons (which was... More

This is a great place to stay. We just returned from ten days in French Polynesia, it was our third visit to this lovely part of the world and we'd been to most of the major islands in the "Society Island" chain, so we decided to try out Fakarava and the Tuomotus. Fakarava is very quiet and charming. The people... More

The location of this place was as perfect as the beach out front. It was like out of a postcard. Somewhat plain, but in just the right way. The food every night was amazing. Everyone that worked there was very helpful and friendly. Had the opportunity to stay longer, but airline schedules wouldn't allow us. This is a great place... More

I have just returned from 2 weeks in French Polynesia. The first week I selected the atoll Fakarava since I am a scuba diver and this atoll had rave reviews. I selected Pearl Havaiki based on the abundance of good reviews. I made my reservations about 8 months prior and at that point was told there were only garden bungalows... More

My wife, Selen, and I had marvelous time at Havaiki. There are not enough great things to say about the Fakarava experience meddled with Havaiki. Property is clean, pristine and well kept. Owner has an eye for quality and taste. Villas are lovely and steps away from the beach. Rooms are perfectly adequate. Food was better than some hotels that... More

We booked a beach bungalow (B8+B9 are older beach bungalows, built not on stilts) unfortunately not the premium beach bungalow. We also booked the pick up service from the airport in advance. Owner: French business man who lives in Polynesia/Fakarava for nearly 25 years. The older bungalows are at the end of the guest house area (very calm). The white... More

If you want to go to Fakarava, French Polynesia and have a nice place to stay, this is it. The rooms are basic but most include a/c. Ours had a nice bathroom, reasonable sized refrigerator and a safe for valuables. The highlight of staying here for us was the dinners. The dinners (I believe all guests stay with half board...

Beautiful grounds, idyllic waterfront and great hospitality! The lagoon just off shore has lots to see when snorkelling or even just sitting on the end of the pier. Joachim was incredibly helpful in organising activities and trips and ensuring everything was perfect with our room. We stayed in a garden bungalow which was very spacious and clean. The only downside... More
