When visiting Raiatea there is no better hotel to stay in that this. Firstly when you look at the photos, it looks like a 'big' hotel, please be informed that this hotel is one of the friendliest, best and most genuine hotels we have ever stayed in in all of our years working in travel and tourism. The rooms are beautifully designed and have a very tranquil feel. The food is genuinely OUT OF THIS WORLD good. We have visited many Michelin starred restaurants on our travels and the food quality, service and presentation is up there with the best. Even if you're not half board, the prices are more than reasonable. The pool area is brand new with top quality pool furniture and feels sophisticated and high end - it's reminiscent of the kind of 'swanky' Instagramable type pool you get in a 5 star Miami boutique hotel. In fact, this hotel sums up 'boutique hotel' perfectly. The grounds are manicured yet authentic with a beautiful view of the lagoon. The kayaks and bicycles are free and are PREMIUM quality. We recommend you grab a kayak and paddle over to the motu opposite for an explore - was one of our favourite memories of Raitaea. The cocktails are high quality and the champagne is a really reasonable price. There is nothing better than relaxing by the pool here and indulging in a beautiful bottle of champagne... Working up a hunger for a scrumptious meal to come. And breakfast is AMAZING. SUPER fresh, delicious and totally homemade. Walking into a room decorated with flowers and smelling delicious puts you in a good mood for the whole stay. Being given a welcome drink and a refreshing cold towel and a full explanation of all the wonderful things the hotel has to offer is such a wonderful and professional way to start your stay. We literally can't say enough good things about the owners. Pleasant, polite, friendly, genuine and funny. They have a gem of a hotel that makes you feel instantly relaxed the second you step into it and that's not just the beautiful surroundings, but so much of that is down to them making you feel so welcome and like you are at home. If you are debating between here and the 'other' highly rated hotel on Raiatea. Stay here. Believe us we know, we stayed at both. You will not regret staying here. (Yet we regretted leaving here to stay somewhere else!) PLUS it's 5 mins from the airport and 10 mins from town. Its perfectly located for diving, shopping and getting the feel for Raiatea. Don't make the same mistake as we did by going somewhere way out of the way after staying here... And instead, give yourself the relaxing beautiful break you deserve at Raiatea Lodge HOTEL. You won't regret it.

A wonderful experience- staff and cleanliness a top priority! And the meals superb- especially the delicious soup and chocolate decadent lava cake! On one night I took a couple of hours just to lay out by the pool and enjoy the magnificent stars- like being in a planetarium! Highly recommended!

I stayed 2 nights at this hotel and loved everything about it: the beautiful Tiffany blue colour of this colonial style building, the spacious rooms, the tropical gardens, the beautiful pool. What made it even more special was the superb restaurant (the best meals in French Polynesia during my trip) and the amazing staff at reception, restaurant and pool areas. They were all super friendly and accommodating. Excellent hotel!!!

We were in a bungalow (Bora Bora 1) which was superb. Huge bed, huge shower, lovely private deck. We had half-board which was awesome as the dinners were excellent (vegetarian risotto was delicious). The best thing about this place was the helpful but unobtrusive staff. We didn’t do any tours but they were available and staff were keen to book us on one. Instead. we hired a car from the hotel for the day and drove around the island - super interesting place - Marae was the best. Great place to stay on Ra’iatea. They even let us stay IN OUR ROOM on the day of check out until 4pm as they had no one coming in until the following day - I’ve got nothing but nice things to say about that.

This Lodge Hotel is a true gem found in French Polynesia. My girlfriend and I wanted a few days to relax prior to boarding our Tradewinds catamaran cruise and we were lucky enough to choose this wonderful place to enjoy. The rooms are spacious and they also have self contained bungalows. The food was amazing and they also have one of the best views on the island. We loved this place and we will stay there again when we return to French Polynesia in a few years.

We spent a couple of nights here in June 2021 and will definitely come back again if we ever make it back to Raiatea. We stayed in one of the apparently new bungalows, and it was very nicely appointed, very clean and very comfortable. More importantly, we had all our meals here during out stay and wished we had more time to try everything on the menu - it was that good. There was nothing on the menu that wasn't exceptionally good and the presentation was as good as the food. The staff was friendly and personable, and very helpful no matter what the situation. This was overall the nicest places we've stayed over many years of travel. Highly recommended.

We stayed in the Raiatea Lodge for 4 nights and enjoyed it a lot. The completely renovated Garden Bungalow was very clean and nicely decorated with a lots of small details. They offer you kayaks for free to paddle on a small motu just 10 minutes away from the lodge. On the waterside of the hotel you can have a nice view on the breathtaking sunsets. And if you need a car to rent, the lodge offers it directly from them. The staff was super friendly and made our stay unique. Our highlight definitely was the restaurant. The food is very delicious and we were so happy that we had breakfast and dinner included in our booking. Look at the pictures and you will see how lovely this place looks like and how great the food! We can really recommend to stay in the Raiatea Lodge Hotel and we would definitely go back there, also because of the great meals! Thanks for making our vacation so wonderful!
