Msr. Eric Barbour and his wife (the chef) are genteel and gracious hosts at this lovely, spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated retreat. (He also was immensely helpful when Air Tahiti went on strike and we had to figure out how to get to the Tahiti airport to fly home, but that another story.) The rooms are spacious and airy, very tropical,... More

We were leaving from Ra'iatea on a week long sailing trip and due to flight schedules, we needed to stay in Ra'iatea prior to that trip. The Opoa arranged to pick us up at the airport, and it was a beautiful 45 minute drive to the hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful, the food was great, and we thoroughly... More

Stayed in bungalows which are cute, comfortable. Staff was great & very accomodating. Our flight from Papeete was cancelled due to strike but entire staff worked at getting us picked up earlier than expected & allowed us early check-in. They also allowed a late check-out for our Yacht cruise the next day. We paddled to distant island & back within... More

A remote resort that exudes peace and tranquility; the trip from the airport is about 45 minutes. Although there is no A/C, just place the fan on the end table, and all is well. The bungalows are charming, the pool is clean, and the grounds are nice. The staff is very helpful and courteous and ready to answer all of... More

Wow, I have stayed all over the world, Opoa Beach Hotel is right up there with the most memorable. I stayed in a Beach Bungalow. Beautiful design and comfortable with great attention to detail. The employees were gracious and helpful. The food in the restaurant was exquisite. I highly recommend this hotel!

The stay at the Opoa is by itsleft worth the trip to Raiatea. Small hotel of less than 10 white and blue bungalows, try to get one with the beach view. Everything is just perfect, lovely, quiet... The food too is just fantastic, a big "bravo" to the chef.
