Bungalows and Villas

LUXURY BUNGALOW WITH GARDEN VIEW

Nestled in the middle of the tropical garden of the hotel, away from the beach, the luxury garden bungalows are enhanced by a unique blend of French sophistication and contemporary Polynesian design accents. Drawing on a palette of bright colors and precious woods, the personal space includes a generous bathroom with French toiletries and an outdoor patio. The king size bed is facing expansive windows offering dramatic garden views from your private terrace.

SUPERIOR LAGOON VIEW BUNGALOW

The Superior Lagoon View bungalows create a soothing retreat, located in a quieter part of the hotel. There is a small beach in front of each bungalow and it is just a few steps to the water. They are appreciated for their private side. The bedroom interiors are a perfect blend of French elegance and Polynesian culture. Textures, patterns and bright colors are influenced by the French painter Paul Gauguin within a contemporary yet Tahitian decor.

LUXURY BUNGALOW BEACHFRONT

This is one of our favorite room categories at the resort. Located in front of the main beach of the hotel, these bungalows offer clear outstanding views over the pristine waters of Moorea and the island of Tahiti. These units are the same size and layout as the Luxury Garden Bungalows with the added advantage of the views of the beach & lagoon.

SUPERIOR OVERWATER BUNGALOW

These overwater bungalows offer great access to the lagoon from your private deck with a separate swim platform. All bungalows have a king size bed with a small sitting area inside that features a glass coffee table to allow you to see the water and marine life below your bungalow. On the deck you will find chairs and a table for outdoor dining. There is a well-appointed bathroom as well.

LUXURY OVERWATER BUNGALOW

Almost twice the size of the Superior Overwater Bungalows, these bungalows offer a larger and more upscale interior design including a glass floor panel to see the lagoon waters below. They also have a considerably larger deck. Another unique feature to these overwater categories is a small outdoor patio in the bathroom gives a nice light to the overall. All Luxury Overwater Bungalows are reserved for couples only.

LUXURY HORIZON OVERWATER BUNGALOW

Located at the far end of the pontoon, these bungalows offer the best privacy and a unique panoramic view on the island of Tahiti from your private deck. They are the same size and layout as the Luxury Overwater Bungalows with the added bonus of the premier “end of pontoon” location.

LUXURY VILLA (TWO BEDROOM)

This lagoon front villa is a great choice for families. There is only one of these, and it tends to book up well in advance. This bungalow features 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a spacious living room. Located at the edge of the resort property, it is the most private unit of the property. There is a large terrace with jacuzzi, a small adjoining beach, as well as an outdoor bathtub in one of the 2 bathrooms.

Brilliant Underwater Photo of Tahiti Wins Contest
The annual Underwater Photographer of the Year competition, based in Great Britain, has chosen an image taken in August 2020 off the coast of Moorea! Winning photographer, American Renee Capozzola, captured shark's at sunset from underwater. The photo named "Shark's Skylight" is an excellent tribute to these special residents of French Polynesia. Hats off to Renee for her excellent work. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did. "In French Polynesia there is strong legal protection for sharks, allowing them to thrive and balance the marine ecosystem." - Renee Capozzola‍

We really enjoyed arriving in Tahiti and having everything taken care of. I always wanted to arrive at the airport and have someone holding a sign with my name on it. 😁 Also wanted to share with you there were other people using travel agents and they Did Not get the treatment we got. With that being said Thank you and your company for taking such good care of us.

I wanted to say thanks for helping us set up an amazing trip. We are home safe & sound! Everything was wonderful-- I am so happy you recommended the Shark & Ray tour on Bora Bora-- it was by far our favorite thing that we did! We ended up relaxing on Taha'a as it was the most perfect place to unwind and get massages. All of the hotels were awesome-- Le Taha'a Resort and The Conrad were our favorites! We absolutely loved our beach bungalow (it was huge!!)
