ESCAPE THE CROWDS OF BORA BORA AND DISCOVER HEAVEN AT LE TAHA'A ISLAND RESORT- Privacy and Romance await you
Le Taha'a Island Resort & Spa is a 5-star property, located on a "motu" islet, a 35-minute navigation from the Raiatea Airport (transfers operated by the resort's shuttle boats) and a 5-minute boat ride from the village of Tapuamu (free transfers from the resort) on the main island of Taha'a. The ultimate way to connect between Taha'a and Bora is definitely by helicopter ! Beyond being an easy and quick transfer, this 14-minute flight will be an excursion of pure beauty as you fly above the stunningly gorgeous Tahitian lagoons.
Part of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux collection, Le Taha'a welcomes you to a world of immaculate beauty, a timeless universe of sophistication and authenticity. Located on the secluded Motu Tautau islet, facing the lush island of Taha'a on one side and the majestic silhouette of Bora Bora on the other side, the resort, inspired by traditional Polynesian architecture and style, hosts 57 remarkable suites and villas.
Our life style: genuinely Polynesian, purely authentic!
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.
TWO ISLANDS- RAIATEA AND TAHAA SHARE THE SAME LAGOON
Having 2 islands (Raiatea and Taha'a) sharing the same lagoon is (besides being a quite unique feature) door open to a large variety of excursions. Whether you are into culture and history, hiking, scuba diving, snorkeling, scuba diving, virgin islets exploration, waverunner adventure, jeep safari tours, nature discovery, sunset cruises, helicopters tours, you will find your perfect Taha'a ! Our Guests Relations will assist you in choosing the best tours to make your stay in the islands the most enriching, exciting and fun. Private options are available.
ABOUT THE ISLAND OF TAHA'A
The island of Taha'a, formerly called Uporu, is located in the Society Islands and shares the same lagoon as the island of Raiatea. Raiatea played a major role in Polynesian migrations throughout the Pacific Ocean and is still an important historical and cultural center, witness of well-alive civilization and traditions.
VANILLA ISLAND - Home of Tahitian Vanilla
Taha'a is symbolically called the Vanilla Island. It is on these fertile lands that the Tahitian vanilla is cultivated to become one of the best and most fragrant one, sought after by the best Chefs around the world. Tahitian pearls are also produced in Taha'a. A few pearl farms have found their shelter in the island's pure waters.
