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.

French Polynesia Approves Antigen Test
The government of French Polynesia has just announced that they will accept a specific type of Antigen Test as an alternative to the RT-PCR test for entry into Tahiti. The RT-PCR test has been in place since July 2020. As mentioned in our French Polynesia COVID-19 Entry Protocols, the Antigen test must detect the "N" protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Tahiti Travel Tips
Restaurants and Dining in Bora Bora and the Islands of Tahiti
We are often asked about the cost of food in Bora Bora and Tahiti. Food tends to be a bit expensive in French Polynesia. It is on par with dining out in New York, Los Angeles or Honolulu. If you are trying to stick to a preferred travel budget, regardless of how much you plan to spend, the cost of dining in French Polynesia should be considered in your travel and vacation planning.

Which Polynesian Islands and Hotels to Visit
Which islands to visit and how many islands you should visit depends a lot on how long you plan to stay in French Polynesia.We typically advise clients to spend at least 3 nights on each island in their itinerary (except possibly the Island of Tahiti). Spending less than 3 nights tends to make travelers feel too rushed. After all, you are going there to at least try to relax.

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!
