My husband and I visited French Polynesia and chose Nuka Hiva for a very different experience in comparison to moorea or bora bora. It is a little tough to get there as it is a 4 hour flight from Tahiti and there is only one flight a day but it is well worth it.! The hotel was superb. We had... More

We have eaten at the restaurant several times during our visit. The service is friendly and attentive, food is very good and they will pick you up from anywhere in town for a small fee. Try the wahoo ceviche, risotto, and coconut creme brûlée!

It is a locally brand. I.e. Not an international hotel chain. The price is high given that it is in one of the most remote part of the world. Surprisingly the service, the presentation, design, comfort and food all exceeds our expectations. It is in a superb location with almost panoramic views of the oceans and beyond. The bungalows are... More

We did not stay at the Pearl Lodge but they were more than happy to give us a tour of the island. Jean Pierre met us at the Tourism Center and drove us to multiple lookouts to take photos. During the drive, he educated us about the landscape and history of the island. He took us to the current fairgrounds... More

Recently stayed here in October for 5 nights prior to a Paul Gauguin cruise. Charming little hotel with fabulous views over Taiohae bay. The main building which is reception, bar and dining room is surrounded by 18 bungalows and is set in a tropical garden setting with a small infinity pool. All of the bungalows are identical but the best... More

The hotel is located on the western end of the bay of Taiohae and offers a breathtaking view over the blue bay and its stunning montainous surroundings. The bungalows are held in wooden Marquesan-Polynesian style and are decorated by local artists. Absolutely loved the ambience!

I stated in the Nuku Hiva Pearl Lodge four nights in April. I was worried because my French is just so-so, but most of the staff there spoke some English. I was staying with an inclusive package that included breakfast and dinner and three excursions. They were quiet a bargain when everything was said and done. The rooms never get... More

Nuku Hiva is one of the islands which remained somewhat and largely virgin. It is clean and the roads are good compared with the other in Marquesas. Exceptional landscapes and the locals focus on keeping their historical and cultural heritage. The population is mostly Maori, so the culture it belongs to they almost entirely.
