We enjoyed an amazing week staying here! You feel at home from the moment you arrive:) Enjoy fresh fruit from the property along with the best tasting water on Tahiti. Rooms and common areas are always kept clean and there's plenty of space to hideaway. We look forward to staying here next year. I love this place!

Loved this place. The staff came and got me from the airport as requested which was a lot cheaper than a taxi. The owners are lovely people. The lodge is very basic but clean and I felt very comfortable here. The showers and toilets are in seperate block which wasn't a problem at all. It was the owners granddaughters 1st...
