Le Taha'a Island Resort & Spa
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Tahaa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 5, 2014

We loved our 10-day stay at Le Taha'a, and are ready to come back as soon as we can!
The location and service are spectacular, you feel like you're in heaven, and taken care of for all you may want in a relaxed and luxurious way. Hats off to the superb General Manger Julien Bressolles-- who (on several occasions) went the extra mile to take care of us!! He has somehow managed to have an ambiance that feels REAL and "of Tahiti" (entirely non-corporate), populated with the sweetness of the Tahitian people and French people on the staff (we grew to know and enjoy MANY of the wonderful staff!!) , yet every efficiency is spot-on. No small task for a very remote paradise!! We stayed in an end of pontoon OWB (thank you to Claudia at "Pacific For Less" for your guidance, and for the many other great perks and discounts PFL provided!)...the OWB was completely private! While being worried at first-- that 10 days could be too long and somehow boring....au contraire... we adventured on some days and stayed on site for others and could have happily stayed another 10 days!!! We liked the food options (consider that you're in the middle of nowhere, + I'm a vegetarian), the activities offered (Maire was great! Samuel for snorkeling+!), and the Polynesian dancing nights on Tuesdays! We did stay at St. Regis Bora Bora on this trip, and while it was wonderful (particularly in the generous and comfy rooms & excellent breakfast buffet!)--it was very tamed/Disney. We've traveled to many tropical islands before, I would come back to Le Taha'a first and always if I could! Very small downsides (in the interest of balance): Everything in Tahiti is expensive (of course!), the WIFI should be free of charge at Le Taha'a, the coffee at breakfast REALLY needs to be better (!!) --so glad we had an espresso maker in the room--and you may want to bring your own trusted shampoo + conditioner because the combo product in the room was horrible for my hair. Small things...small things indeed in the face of paradise.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 9-- OWB end of pontoon for ultimate privacy.

Le Taha’a is a quiet, cozy resort. Not much goes on, which is exactly what we like. Our room was perfect - we had an end unit OWB and the view was spectacular. While I rate the breakfast low, the rest of our meals were delicious!! We ate at The Ohiri one night - and it was fantastic! I had veal and it was melt-in-your mouth yummy. We also did a cooking lesson with the chef one day at noon, then ate the lunch we fixed. Well worth it. We did an island tour which included lunch - ending the day at Le Taha’a’s Coral Garden - and it was one of the highlights of our trip. This was a fast current coral garden, so you walk a ways up to the opening, and let the water take you. We saw 2 moray eels among all the beautiful coral and fish. It was PHENOMENAL. They have a nice pool (we never used). Important to me is: they have a hairdryer, safe, white bedding and a great-working air conditioner. Of the three islands we visited during our stay, this was my favorite…something about it. Oh and Ashton & Mila were there too! HIGHLY recommended.

We wanted to enjoy 2 different islands during our trip to Tahiti, so stayed at the St Regis Bora Bora and Le Taha'a. They are completely different - but there is a warmth and true Tahitian flair at Le Taha'a - and was a great addition to our holiday. I would have been happy to bring the kids to this resort (not the first) ... we were there in May, so perhaps 50% occupancy - the place would feel really full at 100% occupancy.

We had a lovely sunset overwater villa - the picture window and the fish feeding boxes from the bedroom were great additions to the room. In fact, throughout the resort, there are so many 'little' touches that make it a really charming hotel.

The drift snorkeling in the coral garden is exceptional and so accessible - basically you walk up the side of the motu (small island) and then walk into the channel between 2 motu and the current takes you back towards the hotel and you get to 100s and 100s of different corals and fish en route. BRILLIANT.

The overland tour of Taha'a island with a local guide is a MUST. The activities desk can organise it for you. This trip was a bit of a highlight for us in the trip - and in seeing some more 'real' Tahiti vs the tourist hotels and locations.

The food at Le Taha'a is great ... the creme brulee was a favourite, along with the simple Mahi Mahi burger.

The spa service was brilliant - we had a 'vanilla' couples massage and foot scrub. I'd definitely recommend the spa, and it is set in a charming location.

We decided to go to Le Taha'a on the advice of a friend / travel agent, Lisa Corso of Tahiti Legends. Last year we stayed at Le Meridian in Bora Bora, very nice, and we intended to go back, but Le Taha'a is another step up. From the moment we stepped off the boat we were greeted with heart felt hospitality. The resort manager, Julian, set the standard and his staff lived up to it. Most staff members seemed to know us by name and bungalow number. It was as if they had put an invisible name tag on us that only they could see. Every staff person we met went out of their way to make sure we had the most unbelievable stay possible. Island beauty was something you could only dream about before arriving here. Bungalows and villas are superbly decorated and furnished. Last year I paid a lot to go out one time swimming in the reef and saw a few fish, this year I walked to the end of the lagoon a few times each day and saw thousand of fish in their coral garden. Last year I also paid to go swimming with the sharks and rays, This year I saw them swimming under the bungalow. This is the place to loose all your stresses and worries. Can't say enough good things about it.
I read the review titled "Beautiful Island" and had a completely different experience. I don't mind kids at all, but in the 6 days we were there did not see any. We paid for our meals ahead of time, except for drinks, so I guess we received a better rate. I would say that this resort is better suited for adults, rather than children, but I know one couple we talked with said they would return next year with their children. There were no canoe races when we were there, although that would have just added to the experience, but I would say if that would bother you, when making reservations, check and ask the desk or travel agent if something special is going on.
So glad I went, definitely going again.

This resort was nice.. but it was also our last resort that we stayed at before we returned from our honeymoon. This meant that we had already stayed at the best hotels French Polynesia had to offer.. so the bar was set very high.. and this hotel didnt quite reach it. Everything is a buffet here and they are by no means affordable. We were also staying here during the big canoe race so we had many guests that were just people watching from their boats. It was not relaxing like the other hotels. Since the hotel opened their doors up to these non paying guests we got stuck with screaming and crying children at the pool when we were supposed to be relaxing on our honeymoon. One day they even closed the little lunch spot by the pool to open a buffet that was obscenely expensive. It was our only option for lunch so we paid for it.. but talk about not valuing your guests. All in all, beautiful place.. but probably wont return on our next trip to French Polynesia.

Great Experience. Nice and Quiet place. Maybe not as scenic as Bora Bora still a MUST visit BEFORE going to Bora Bora. Thank You Pacific-For-Less (and Jennifer) for planning an excellent trip to French Polynesia and suggesting this nice addition to our trip.
Loved the coral garden and snorkeling there.
Wish had more dinner choices.

Exactly what you'd expect for an Eden in the middle of nowhere. We went to 3 Islands on our honeymoon, Tahaa being one of them, and the best, most comfortable, most beautiful one. Amazing atmosphere, great staff, lovely rooms, good food, not stuck up and very boutique. Highly recommended.
