Taha'a & Raiatea

Luxury accommodations combined with exposure to true, low-key, island life is a rarity. If you are looking for an authentic, off-the-beaten path experience while maintaining a five-star standard, Taha’a, off the coast of Raiatea is the destination.

Overview

Taha’a is a great place to truly escape! Vanilla-scented air flows down the hillsides courtesy of the island’s many vanilla farms.  The fragrant and beautiful setting helps you ease into an opportunity to truly get away from it all and relax. While you are here, your stay will be more about spending time at your resort and unwinding.  However, there are some great excursions available, as well.  

Taha’a is the sister island to nearby Raiatea as they share the same lagoon. One airport, located on Raiatea, serves both islands. When you arrive on Raiatea, you will travel by boat to your resort on Taha’a.  The 30-45 minute boat ride helps you ease into island time and prepare yourself for rest and rejuvenation.

Raiatea has a special place in Polynesian history. It was the first island in the region to be populated. Raiatea is the starting point for most sailing charters in French Polynesia. The sailing conditions are excellent, and it is a pleasure cruising to the other nearby islands. Raiatea is also home to the only navigable river in French Polynesia.

Dining

Most of your dining on Taha’a will be at your resort. Le Taha’a includes breakfast daily and has some great restaurants for lunch and dinner. Please see our detailed Le Taha’a by Pearl Resorts guide for more information.

Vahine Island Resort includes breakfast and dinner daily with lunch available as well. There are a few small restaurants and snack shops on the main island, however they can be difficult to access since the Taha’a resorts are on private islands.

The spa is beautiful, we had a great couples massage! ...the excursions are amazing & the best snorkeling channel around! Its worth every penny you spend and an experience of a life time! The sunsets are the best you will ever see! We used VENTURE TAHITI in Boca Raton, Florida to book our trip and it went off without a hitch. They did an excellent job and I highly recommend them!

The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort is absolutely incredible. There are no words to describe the beauty of Tahiti and the staff there was wonderful. I cannot thank Venture Tahiti enough for helping us book the most incredible experience of our lives!! We plan on bringing our children there very soon!
