Le Taha'a Island Resort and Spa

Tapuamu Village
Taha'a, 98733, French Polynesia
TEL: (800) 841-4145
TEL: 689-608-400

Popular with honeymooners, this quiet resort is located on the white-sand beach of Motu Tautau, just west of the larger Taha’a island. The 57 Polynesian-style accommodations include over-water suites and beachfront villas, all with thatched roofs, tropical wood furniture, and decorative tapa (bark cloth). The villas have private plunge pools, and there’s also a main pool with a swim-up bar. Dining options range from the gourmet Ohiri, serving French-Polynesian fusion, to the more casual Le Vanille, which hosts a weekly Tahitian buffet with traditional fire dancing. Resort activities include snorkeling, scuba diving, and an excursion to a local vanilla plantation.

Room to Book:

If privacy is a top priority, request a suite further out in the lagoon—the water is still relatively shallow, and the accommodations are more secluded.

Insider Tip:

Opt for the dining package that includes breakfast and dinner; portions are huge, so you most likely won’t need a full lunch.
