Nestled away on a private barrier island surrounding Tikehau’s vast lagoon, Ninamu is a hidden gem awaiting adventuresome travelers in search of an all-inclusive getaway.
Tikehau is all about the water, and Ninamu was named for the bright turquoise hue of the islet’s endless interior lagoon. Diving and snorkeling fanatics will be delighted by the incredible array of tropical marine species that are waiting to be discovered below the surface of the glittering sea.
For travelers in search of a boutique experience, the Ninamu Resort is perfect alternative to a more traditional hotel. With only eight intimate bungalows made from local materials, you will feel transported to a simpler time while you enjoy this natural slice of paradise.
Due to the resort's remote location, most of your meals will be at the resort, rather than outside restaurants. The resort makes the most of this with friendly staff and good food. The resort normally serves local fish freshly caught from the lagoon along with other international and local dishes.
All meals are included but beverages are at an additional cost. Each meal is served in a charming dining room open to the elements to enjoy the natural ambiance of the island. We recommend sipping cocktails while stargazing in the evenings.
Breakfast is available from 6am to 9am with a selection of fresh baked breads, homemade jams, fresh fruit, coffee, tea, yogurt, cheese, cereals and eggs. At 12:30pm lunch is served with a daily set course menu. Dinner begins with appetizers at the bar just before sunset at 6pm. The dinner menu features two set courses.
The resort bar next to the restaurant serves cocktails and other beverages whenever meals are served. It should be noted that meals can be adjusted according to activity schedules.
Standard room amenities include:
It should be noted that Ninamu Resort belongs to the “Guesthouses & Family Hotels” classification of accommodation since it features limited dining options, housekeeping services, staff and other differences compared to the more typical hotel experience. However, this family-run property is bursting with Polynesian hospitality and offers a glimpse into the life of a true Tahitian family.
