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. Defined by the Relais & Chateaux philosophy, Le Taha'a is the promise of a total change of scenery, a way of life of its own, in harmony with its preserved environment, people and local culture.
The island of Taha'a 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 and remains an important historical and cultural center. Taha'a is symbolically called the Vanilla Island, as on these fertile lands some of the best and most fragrant vanilla is grown and sought after by Chefs around the world. Tahitian pearls are also produced in Taha'a, pearl farms have found their shelter in the island's pure waters. The island is blessed with lush mountains and valleys, turquoise lagoons, virgin "motu" islets. The Vanilla Island has kept this Polynesian flair, and its inhabitants share a way of life that has remained truly authentic. Fishing, vanilla, pearl farms, agriculture and tourism are part of their daily lives.
Taha'a Island Resort & Spa is located on a "motu" islet, a 35-minute boat ride from the Raiatea Airport and a 5-minute boat ride from the village of Tapuamu (free transfers from the resort), on the main island of Taha'a.
All suites and 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, enjoy the idyllic surroundings and the tropical outdoor lifestyle Le Taha'a offers - refined elegance and bare luxury.
Le Taha'a is surrounded by pristine waters and is located steps from an incredible coral garden. Get up, close and personal with the teeming sea life by experiencing drift snorkeling that carries one from the small reef at the edge of the islet right to the heart of the coral garden.
Having 2 islands (Raiatea and Taha'a,) sharing the same lagoon offers a large variety of excursions. Experience culture and history, hiking, scuba diving, snorkeling, virgin islets exploration, wave runner adventures, jeep safari tours, nature discovery, sunset cruises, helicopter tours, and more!
The Spa is nestled in a beautiful exotic garden, overlooking the calm resort's interior 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 also be enjoyed right on the lagoon as sun sets over Bora Bora.
