Greeting & Departure, very well done in Tahitian “Maeva” Friendly Staff, well trained, warm and gracious smiles and service delivered consistently, nothing here is pretentious Excellent breakfast buffet and pastry chef at Le Hawaiki Nui (the treehouse restaurant) Courtesy Room assigned to me for my use day of departure (without my request!), much appreciated Ukulele music and Tahitian songs onboard the shuttle boat Sunrises and Rainbows -the most peaceful sunrises ever each morning from your overwater bungalow, and Taha’a always shows its glory with rainbows over the lagoon Swimming in the ocean, soft white sand – this is what it's all about The most relaxing place! This was my 2nd trip here…. I will return again. Māuruuru roa : Heremana, Oceane, Natua, Vitia, Tomati, Jean, Clement, Laurent, the “ukulele musician”, and ALL of the staff - you're doing a beautiful job

This was the first hotel in French Polynesia , a delayed holiday for my 60th . from the moment we arrived it was wonderful . Thanks to Cherice at Pearl resorts in LA for recommending it. Picked up at the airport the boat ride is about 40 mins . Our room was ready , we chose to stay in on ocean view villa as we are doing the over water villa in Bora Bora . it was huge like a mini villa . Service amazing / food fabulous and i'm vegetarian . The staff are lovely cannot recommend this hotel enough. We didn't do much as had 4 hectic days en route in LA , sat by the pool snorkelled in the wonderful coral garden that you literally walk along the beach to. We had our own masks but you can borrow them .I paddleboarded but the current can be strong . We ate one night in the posh restaurant which was excellent ( supplement for half board ) Had a fabulous massage in the spa . Only negative points are that there was no suncream for sale in shop and the gym equipment was a little dated, we had a lovely time and only hope the next 6 nights in its sister hotel le Bora Bora is as good

Our stay at Le Taha'a was even more than we hoped it would be! Our overwater bungalow was cozy and everything we wanted it to be - the view was stunning. The staff had put flowers all over our room, including a big 30 in a heart to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary - along with champagne and pastries! The staff was so helpful and friendly and met every single one of our needs. We ordered room service often to enjoy our private patio and they were very fast and efficient in delivering and setting it all up for us! Our room was kept immaculate and they checked in with us often to see if we needed anything. The coral garden was our favorite and we spent many happy hours exploring it. We also kayaked and paddle boarded many times and were lucky to see many fish and rays in our explorations. Thank you to Pacific for Less for steering us toward Le Taha'a and helping us to have a memorable trip!

We loved our April trip to Le Taha'a. From the moment you are picked up by boat at Raiatea, you know this is going to be a different experience. Service was very friendly, although occasionally on "island time". Breakfast buffets were bountiful and delicious with the amazing French pastries and French toast being the standouts. Lunches at the beach restaurant were beautiful and delicious! Stick to the main restaurant for dinner rather than the fancier one. The food at the treehouse restaurant was always good- we especially enjoyed the tuna sashimi appetizer each night. The coral garden is a true highlight. We went snorkeling almost every day and preferred the calmer end section where we could float in more leisurely way. We also enjoyed the day trip to the rum factory/vanilla plantation/pearl farm/swimming with sharks and rays. The rooms are spacious and well-appointed at Le Taha'a and the housekeeping staff is excellent, seeming to slip in and out in the times we left the room. The patios could use a little refresher but the views and tranquility made up for anything lacking there. We weren't sure it would have been worth the up-charge for the end of pontoon villas as those seemed more wind-swept (a few of our days were windy) and the water was deeper there. The clientele is more French than American but the staff was always friendly and gracious speaking English to us. Our only small complaint was the service at the pool bar. We probably would have ordered many more drinks if it was more efficient. We brought our own liquor to add to fruit juice and the in room fridges are stocked with beer and juice daily. Overall, Le Taha'a was an amazing Polynesian escape that felt more authentic and calm than we had heard other Tahitian resorts felt.

We enjoyed our stay at one of the beach villas. #49, if you can get it, offers the best location, a corner property (with extra beach, and view on sunset/bora) and value. I believe that #49 is a better value and property than overwater villas. Right on the beach, spacious, well designed. Cleaning staff is excellent. Coral garden is great, easily accessible. Room service very good. Activities are good but overpriced. Breakfast - very good. Desserts - excellent. One suggestion. Dinner is just good/ok. Buffet at Polynesian dinner (once a week) worked great. Hard to understand why resort insists on a limited, ok quality/overpriced dinner a la carte menu. Besides questionable quality/value, food is routinely delayed, as the resort goes to eat at the same time. Overall, a very enjoyable stay in excellent location.

We started our recent family trip in Le Taha'a before spending time in Bora Bora and Tikehau. I think that this is the most well-rounded of all locations. It is luxurious while still maintaining a sense of place and we really felt the local French Polynesian culture here more than anywhere else. Our beach bungalow was perfect for our family with a separate room for the kids and a lovely outdoor area. There is a small beach area in front of the bungalows but we preferred spending time at the main beach and pool area as they did a nice job incorporating the pool into the beach so that they were only steps apart. The coral gardens inspired me to book Le Taha'a and we were not disappointed. It was wonderful to be able to walk over to the end of the gardens and drift back to the resort as often as we liked. Note that they are very shallow in spots. Breakfasts here were very nice with the best French pastries of the trip! Dinners were also good with a number of fresh fish options, which we liked. I did find that some of the meals were a little bland but the setting and service were excellent in all three restaurants. I have to note that we traveled with our pre-teen children and everyone here was so kind to us. My son loved the welcome drink (which is not on the menu) and the bar staff happily made it for him on many occasions. We also dined at Ohiri one night for the set menu and they made sure that the kids enjoyed it as much as us. We also loved that there is a free shuttle to Taha'a throughout the day. We enjoyed exploring the local island on e-bikes and visiting the Pearl and Vanilla farms. Overall, we felt that Le Taha'a was the perfect balance of luxury, culture, and activities and we really enjoyed our stay here.

Noting that Le’Tahaa was NOT advertised as a couples only resort, we chose to stop here for part of our trip with our 2 teen sons, ages 14 and 16. Throughout our stay, the service was poor (room service never delivered) but also exceedingly rude, especially to our kids. Due to poor wifi in the villas, and knowing we had a long trip home, my kids sat down in the lobby area to download movies for flights. While the staff told Us they were neither rude nor loud, they were asked to leave the lobby and go sit on the ground outside the welcome area. Quite sure they wouldn’t have asked adults to do this. After ordering a burger at the pool and it arriving raw, I asked for it to be cooked a bit more. It came back 1 minute later, still raw. I asked for a new burger and the bar staff proceeded to talk about us in French, assuming we couldn’t understand them! The resort is beautiful, of course. But we don’t suggest bringing children here and don’t suggest a visit unless you enjoy being treated rudely. The Polynesian night buffet was the only decent food but at a price of $90 USD per person. The fire show was wonderful and helped offset that price a bit. The breakfast buffet is very good. Overall, this resort left me feeling disappointed for the price we paid and the treatment we received. For families, stay on Moorea! Beautiful island, better food and nicer people.

It’s beautiful. The coral garden is amazing. The bathrooms is the over water bungalows have mesh screening in the water closet, shower area & on either side of the tub. That means you have to keep the door to the bathroom closed unless you want to AC the great outdoors. It was 80 degrees in our bathroom. We left on Tuesday. Of the 11 people on our boat, there were 4 who had been up all night with either vomiting or diarrhea or a combination of the two. It was a huge topic of conversation at check-out and on the boat. Evidently many many people got sick. There were SO many young children there screaming as they did cannonballs into the pool. I have kids and wasn’t honeymooning but would have been sorely disappointed if I’d been celebrating something special.

I never write hotel reviews, but we spent 9 perfect days at Le Taha'a in late March, and I feel compelled to about this one. From the incredibly kind people, to the unparalleled natural beauty of the Motu and surrounding islands, we felt like we were living in a dream. We stayed in bungalow 18, with a beautiful view of Taha'a. The sunrises were outstanding. We loved watching fish and sharks swim under it every day and night, although we didn't feed them (or need to) for them to come. (Feeding them isn't really good for them and they seem to be drawn to the light anyway, so you'll see fish no matter what) We loved the vanilla-scented bath products they provide, however we wish they came in large bottles in the shower that staff could refill. We went through so many of those little plastic bottles and it felt so wasteful. The monoi oil is still something I dream about! The breakfast, as many others can attest, is incredible. Fresh, tons of options, and very high quality. We never got sick of it. The curry at the beach restaurant is a must-have. We loved the beach BBQ night and Polynesian night, as well as the gourmet restaurant. The menu was the same at that restaurant for our entire stay, so we only went once as that felt enough. Room service was also very good, and arrived fast. if you like fish, this is heaven. We made sure to take advantage of happy hour every day for half price cocktails at the beach bar. The local beers were great to try. The bartenders were all wonderful and fun to chat with. I enjoyed the Polynesian beauty treatment at the spa, and don't think I've ever been so relaxed. The fresh coconut as I soaked in the whirlpool was a nice feature and my therapist was so careful as to avoid scrubbing a few scrapes I had. I really appreciated her attention to detail. The coral garden- what a treat to have this next to the hotel. I spent hours a day, every day in there enjoying the beautiful coral and fish. There are areas at the end of it that clearly show bleached and dead coral from human activity so PLEASE don't wear fins in the coral and PLEASE don't stand on the coral! I saw so many people doing this! It is so rare to have something left that's this healthy so respect it! There is a bit of a current, so walk the island next to it and enter at the far end, then you can swim safely down the deeper areas without getting slammed into coral. There was some algae in the water for a few days at the start of our stay, which didn't hinder it one bit as we noticed staff cleaning it off the beaches every morning. This is due to climate change, and they are managing it as best they can. The concierge also set us up with some great tours. We went diving twice, did the bike tour that took us to the rum distillery, pearl farm, and vanilla farm. We also went to Taputapuātea (highly recommend) which was incredibly interesting and worth seeing to learn its significance to all of Polynesia. Our guide there, Hei Nui, taught us so much about Polynesian culture, and was kind enough to make me the most beautiful flower crown at the end of the tour. We were also lucky enough to swim with two giant manta rays, a highlight of our trip for sure. A few packing tips: bring water shoes and reef safe sunscreen. They also sell reef-safe-sunscreen but don't bet on there being a lot. "ThinkSport" is what we used and it worked great. Long sleeve Rashguard is key for watersports as well, which you'll want to do as besides snorkelling there are complimentary SUP and kayaks. 100% recommend this beautiful hotel and staff. Our entire stay felt authentic, friendly, caring, and peaceful. Mauruuru Roa Le Taha'a!! I hope we can come back again one day.
