The 5 Best Hotels in Tahiti

1. InterContinental Tahiti Resort & Spa

Second Pool with swim-up bar at InterContinental Tahiti Resort & Spa.
Hotel phone: (689) 4086 5178
Opulent resort with immense tropical gardens and stylish design with Polynesian décor. Many rooms with sea views, and also secluded above-water bungalows. Lack of beach offset by enormous lagoon-style pool with Infinity edges; another has a swim-up bar. Plenty of activities for couples, and fun for families. On outskirts of Pape’ete and very close to the airport, yet isolated from places to eat and drink.

2. InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa

InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa lies between manmade inlets and fantastic mountains.
Hotel phone: (689) 4086 5178
Except for the isolation (2.5km from the village), this is perfect: indescribably gorgeous setting facing the sea and manmade inlets, with a startling mountain backdrop. Seemingly endless beaches and tropical gardens. Bungalows on the sand, perched above the water, or more distant but with a private pool. Adding to the tropical vibe are the 2 Infinity-edge pools, themed buffets, and marvellous kids’ club.
(Note: The hotel is temporarily closed.)

3. Sofitel Tahiti Ia Ora Beach Resort

Gigantic sand-bottom swimming pool at Sofitel.
Hotel phone: (689) 4047 0727
Quiet location, but not too far from the capital. Rooms are decent enough, but the drawcard are the above-water bungalows. Renovated/rebuilt in 2018: modern décor, updated facilities, and plenty of windows for sweeping ocean views. Undersized beach offset by astonishing lagoon-style pool among vast tropical gardens packed with lily ponds. Also, a water sports centre and activities like yoga and tennis.

4. Manava Beach Resort & Spa Moorea

Overwater Bungalows and beach at Manava Beach Resort & Spa
Hotel phone: (689) 4043 1788
Vast and tranquil seaside setting. Gorgeous bungalows perched above a turquoise lagoon, accessible by ladder from a private wooden sundeck. Sumptuous and spacious inside, with unbeatable views, including marine life through a partial glass floor. Astonishing pool, several heavenly beaches and water sports galore. And only a 5-minute stroll to village shops and cafés.

5. Moorea Beach Lodge

Bungalows are set amongst lush tropical gardens at Moorea Beach Lodge.
Hotel phone: (689) 8723 3325
Charm and serenity in a colonial-style setting, with a quaint garden dominated by a massive banyan tree. And the beach is perfect, if a little small – and so are the bungalows. Most face the gardens, while several overlook the sea, only metres away. The terrace bar and guests’ lounge are charismatic. It’s also convenient, and bicycles, kayaks and snorkeling gear can be rented gratis.
