Le Taha’a Island Resort & Spa is a 5-star property, located on a “motu” islet, a 35-minute navigation from the Raiatea Airport and a 5-minute boat ride from the village of Tapuamu on the main island of Taha’a. The Owners’ wish was to keep the resort as natural and as green as possible. The whole resort was built around the existing vegetation. You will discover beautiful old trees, colorful flowers and plants, something quite unusual on a “motu”, thanks to the use of seaweed as fertilizers. You will see no club cars travelling around the property. The setting is all harmony with nature.
All suites and villas (45 overwater suites, 10 beach villas, 2 royal beach villas) at Le Taha’a are built in the pure Polynesian tradition, exquisitely blending thatched pandanus roofs, bamboo, exotic woods, stones, corals, Marquesan “tapa” cloths, and woven coconut “nape” ropes. Whether on the beach or above the shimmering lagoon, you will enjoy the idyllic surroundings and the tropical outdoor lifestyle Le Taha’a offers.
A voyage to Le Taha’a is much more than palm trees, beaches and lagoons.
It is also a true culinary experience, strong symbol of the Relais et Châteaux identity and philosophy. With 3 restaurants on-site, initiate your palate to subtle delicacies from the world. You will be pleasantly surprised to find such variety on such a small island.
The Spa is nestled in a beautiful exotic garden, overlooking the calm resort’s interior laguna and surrounded by bamboo trees. This little haven of peace is a true escape to a world of color, energy and deep well-being. A wide range of massages as well as body exfoliations and wraps are available. Massages may as well be enjoyed right on the lagoon as sun sets over Bora Bora. Balneotherapy will be your best ally against jetlag and after a long flight.
“Monoi”, the sacred traditional Polynesian oil infused from coconuts and flowers is used for most treatments. This gift from earth will feed your imagination, and transport you to be in perfect harmony with nature.
The island of Taha’a, formerly called Uporu, is located in the Society Islands and shares the same lagoon as the island of Raiatea. Taha’a is symbolically called the Vanilla Island. A sojourn in Taha’a is an experience out of the ordinary. The island is blessed with lush mountains and valleys, turquoise lagoons, virgin “motu” islets. Taha’a has it all! The Vanilla Island has kept this Polynesian flair, and its inhabitants share a way of life that has remained truly authentic, away from busy Tahiti… Fishing, vanilla, pearl farms, agriculture and tourism are part of their daily lives. There is something magical and poetic about Taha’a, and it just seems like time has stopped, allowing each and everyone to enjoy this land of beauty at their own pace.
