Taha'a is known as the Vanilla Isle due to its numerous vanilla plantations. The island has limited accommodations so if you are planning to visit early bookings are recommended. Le Taha'a Island Resort & Spa is an elegant resort part of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux Group. This resort is a popular destination for honeymooners looking to do a split stay with Bora Bora nearby or another island.
The Vahine Private Island Resort, is a boutique hideaway with a small selection of intimate overwater bungalows and beachfront suites. It is part of the Small Luxury Hotels of The World portfolio. This is a great place to escape the crowds of much larger and popular resorts on Tahiti, Moorea or Bora Bora.
La Pirogue Api, an even smaller boutique hotel located on its own private motu has only four beach bungalows with incredible views of Bora Bora & Taha'a. For travelers seeking a more authentic immersive experience we highly recommend locally owned Tahitian Guesthouses these are like Bed & Breakfasts typically owned by locals.
Pension Anahata run by the dynamic duo Isabelle & Pascal, it is on the island of Taha'a in the bay of Haamene. There are two rooms with ocean views and a private white sand beach. This gem is right by the ocean with easy access to Mount Tepane for hiking or a stroll in nature.
