The Best Hotels for Families in Tahiti
2 pools – 1 enormous and shaped like a lagoon offsets the lack of beach. Family-focussed cultural shows and activities; even a manmade ‘lagoonarium’ for fish-feeding and safe snorkelling. Rooms easily fit in an extra single bed, while suites and bungalows comfortably accommodate families of 4. Only a 5-minute drive from the airport, but no facilities within walking distance.

Magnificent setting, with immense tropical gardens and beaches in all directions. Amazing kids’ club offers activities with a Polynesian flair and ecological focus at the turtle and dolphin centres onsite. Also tennis courts, superb pools and plenty of water sports. Rooms fit in 1 extra single bed, while bungalows have space for 4. And management are keen to accommodate any other family configurations.

Parents would adore the divine setting and traditional design; children are likely to relish the impressive beach and abundant water sports. No pool, but plenty of lawns to run around. Bungalows are spacious and secluded, many with a kitchen and some with 2 bedrooms accommodating a family of 6. And it’s within an easy walk of the village centre, with quaint shops and cafés.

Classic tropical holiday vibe, with massive pool and several divine beaches. Dive centre, with plenty of water-sports. And an easy walk to the village. Rare chance for families to stay in above-water bungalows, which can fit in an extra single bed. Other bungalows and the twin-level duplexes comfortably accommodate a family of 4.

Attractions are the pool, suburban setting (close to downtown and the airport) and beach frontage – although with black sand. Similar to a motel (with parking outside the rooms) and a resort (with substantial gardens and ponds). Standard Rooms allow an extra single bed, while the Studios can accommodate a family of 4, and feature a well-equipped kitchen. Unclear whether it’s deliberately retro ‘60s or just needs updating, but most children probably wouldn’t notice or care.
