    Stopped here for lunch and were amazed by the awesome food (grilled fish and ceviche), phenomenal smoothies, and even friendlier staff! Great spot

    There are so many nice little shops with different cultural gifts for purchase. The prices are a bit high but then most of it is made in French Polynesia and not from China or other countries. Like spending my money on local stuff

    The gallery has many fascinating pieces of art, carvings, jewelry and sculpture, as well as some artifacts.. It's a lovely spot on the hill as well. We bought unique jewelry.

    We stayed at the Sofitel and visited the store there before moving out of the hotel, but it’s a much smaller location, and I was a little intimidated since I was a first time buyer. We later visited the maharepa store and entered just a little before closing, but Julia was very gracious and patient with me. She was so warm to us, and we loved chatting with her, which made the buying experience all that much better! I love my new necklace, thank you Julia!

    Julie couldn't have been more patient with me, as I browsed in the shop on several occasions. Not only did she show me the beautiful pearl item I wanted to look at each time but she also brought alternatives, so that I could make a comparison. Never once did I feel pressured to buy anything, but the pearls were of such beauty and quality, that I would have regretted not doing so. I'm thrilled with the gift I chose and can't wait to see my stepdaughter's face when she opens the box.

    My husband and I had a great experience at SAB Pearls. Both associates were amazing, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. They clearly explained the duty process do be done at the airport and even sent a follow up e-mail when they received the final paperwork. Superb service end-to-end. It's obvious that they take pride in products and service they offer. I was also pleasantly surprised with the prices, much more reasonable than the on-resort boutique.

    My husband and I were visiting Moorea for the first time. We were with friends and they were interested in buying some pearls. After we all looked at the reviews, we decided that Eva Perles Pearl Buying would be the best. We were correct in our thoughts! Eva was warm and friendly as we entered the shop. She showed us around and educated us on all things Tahitian Pearls! She is very knowledgeable and there was no pressure to buy anything. We originally wanted earrings for our daughter, but found a necklace that we liked better. Our daughter LOVES it and wears it everyday! We would highly recommend Eva! We left feeling like we had made a new friend!

    We visited this wonderful shop on a couple of occasions and got to know Thierry who is very helpful and knowledgeable.

    We bought a few items in the shop as our luggage hadn't arrived. There is a good selection of beach essentials and reasonably priced (same as outdoor shops).

    We bought a number of pearl gifts and Thierry spent time explaining to us the process of how the pearls are cultured and we used the duty free option which is straight forward - we had everything stamped at the airport and followed the clear instructions.

    I like the fact that you get a certificate and everything is documented.

    As it was our first island, we were unsure where we should shop for pearls. We are so pleased that we bought them here. We did visit the market in Tahiti and bought some souvenirs that are pearls graded c-d and we were able to compare the quality. There is really no comparison.

    No hesitation in recommending this shop, these high-quality pieces of jewellery, and Thierry.

    My wife and me bought some pearls here during our polynesian holiday in August 2022.
    We can definitely recommend this shop: mr. Peter, the owner, is not only highly expert and competent, but also extremely helpful and patient. He helped my wife to select pearls of same size and color, which took a while…😉!
    Courtesy and professional attitude in one person, together with a huge choice of excellent pearls. Peter’s advices have been precious: thanks a lot!
    If you search for pearls and jewelry in Moorea…this is the right place!

    My stunning Peacock Pearl & diamond ring arrived this week from Tahiti! I’m thrilled with the luster of the Pearl and shimmer of diamonds surrounding it. When I look at my pearl I see the beautiful lagoons and lush jungles of French Polynesia! Even though we couldn’t visit the islands this year, Mat with Tahia was able to find the perfect match to the peacock Pearl pendant I purchased last year!

    I was devastated that my husband and I couldn’t travel to French Polynesia this year because of the global pandemic. But..... I was fortunate enough to have a Tahia Exquisite Tahitian Pearl shipped directly to me!

    The ring took just a day to clear customs in LosAngeles before it arrived the next day in Atlanta. Mat at Tahia worked diligently with me for many months via email. I photographed my pendant and he looked up the record of our purchase in 2019. He found exactly the perfect peacock pearl and a ring was made to be a set! Mat was very patient and knowledgeable. He emailed me many pictures of the ring and gave me all the details of pearl size, luster, quality, diamond carats etc... I was hesitant to buy fine jewelry via email and photos. But due to COVID-19 our trip to Tahiti and BoraBora this year was unfortunately cancelled. Lucky for me, my husband did the next best thing and got me a Tahia Exquisite Tahitian Pearl for Christmas!!

    Thank you to Mat and the Tahia team for making sure I got exactly what I wanted. They made it an easy transaction, shipped it out quickly, then tracked it all the way to my doorstep. My Tahia Pearl fine jewelry set is the highlight of this very difficult year!

    I hope we can return to French Polynesia in 2021 so I can thank Mat in person at the Tahia boutique.

    Thank you for the wonderful time in your shop. We came wanting to buy a bracelet and a ring. This was fulfilled to our complete satisfaction. Even the pearls could be exchanged and now both pieces of jewelery harmonize perfectly. Can only recommend the service and comfort and would come back at any time. Many many thanks.

    We have made 2 purchases from this shop. The first was in person and the second from our home in the U.S.

    We bought 2 beautiful necklaces and a set of pearl ear rings.

    We found this very nice family run shop with very high quality pearls. Jerome and Stephanie were very friendly and helpful. They went the extra mile to get my wife exactly what she wanted for very fair prices.

    We will always do business here in the future.

    We discovered this fantastic souvenir shop while looking at the petite village in Tiahura. It’s not your everyday souvenir shop, all the products from soaps and oils to shirts, skirts, parau and swim suits as well as cushion covers and art work was hand crafted by local artists to a very high quality. This place is well worth dropping in at to find that special gift or reminder of your fabulous holiday.

    Lise is really terrific. Her designs are beautiful and the process is great fun. I was also immensely grateful for Lise’s patience with our nine year daughter as she weighed the many different design options. It was like a dream for a kid her age, but I also enjoyed it. We went back to create another towel later in the morning as a gift for a friend because the first came out so well. Highly recommend Pareo Perso as a great activity to break up time in the water. We were not staying at the hotel so don’t let that stop you.
