Hotel Overview


On the islet of Motu Tautau, with Taha’a island to one side and Bora Bora on the other.

Rooms at Le Taha’a Island

Take your pick from any of the 57 eco-chic overwater suites and beach villas at Le Taha’a, which echo their environment with pandanus thatched roofs, bamboo walls, Marquesan cloths and coral straight from the lagoon. Beach villas blend into the tropical backdrop, perched on the edge of the white sand beach and each with their own plunge pool, garden and thatched cabana for private meals; private decks in the overwater suites offer amazing views and steps down into the water tempt regular swims in the lagoon – our favourite way to wake up in the morning.

Food and facilities

Set high in the treetops, Le Vanille is the main restaurant, named after the area’s abundant vanilla plantations, where you can start the day with French pastries and tropical fruits alongside views of the lagoon; after nightfall take in some Polynesian fire-dancing, folklore and traditional music as Tahitian dishes and delicacies are served up. The Ohiri is a slightly more formal option when it comes to dinnertime, focusing on French-Polynesian fusion and excellent wines.

Activities at Le Taha’a Island

The calm, clear waters of the lagoon beckon for snorkelling, kayaking and wake-boarding, and the resort’s palm-framed tennis courts are there for anyone eager to work up an appetite.
