Voltage in the rooms at Le Taha'a

I have searched this forum (and even emailed the resort) but so far cannot find the info about voltage in the overwater bungalows at Le Taha'a. Are there outlets that will accomodate electrical appliances from the U.S.? Or are they all 220v (in which case I would need to bring a converter)

We stayed at the IC Thalasso in 2011 and they had one or two outlets that would take the US appliances. Hoping this is the case at Le Taha'a too...

PS:

ALWAYS carry a set of converter plugs with you just in case you ned to recharge more than one appliance.

Good advice, take some with you they are cheap and easy to take along, and make sure that if you borrow one you return it to them, We left ours behind accidentally last trip when we left Kia Ora, so we had to borrow one at Le Tahaa, and when we left Le Tahaa there was a charge for it on our bill. We saw it, noticed it because it was a huge charge that I wouldn't want to pay for something so inexpensive. They removed it without a problem as soon as we explained we left the plug in the room. So, safer to just return it directly to the desk I guess, and safer still to just have extras with you so you don't need to borrow them in the first place.

Our OWB had a transformer with two US electrical outlets (110 v? sorry not techie). It is in the shelves of the desk. Hopefully, this will help someone.

What a lot of people don't realize is most phone chargers, camera chargers, laptop power supplies, USB adapters, etc. are dual-voltage rated. All you need is the adapter to convert to the two-round plug configuration and plug it into any 220V outlet in FP. You can get these adapters on Amazon for cheap (six for $10 or less). The only thing that you would need a power converter for is a hair dryer or some electric razors. Many of the resorts are going to furnish a hair dryer.
