Royal Huahine in Huahine, French Polynesia
Tucked away in a small bay on the Tahitian island of Huahine, Royal Huahine is "destined to become a legend in the South Seas" claims the Robb Report. This exclusive enclave, accessible only by boat, offers an exquisite collection of overwater, beachfront and garden bungalows. You'll also enjoy delectable French, Polynesian and International cuisine at Air'i Restaurant and the cultural flamboyance of the Polynesian Buffet and Dance Show.
Whether you choose to laze away the day or challenge yourselves with bracing recreation, Huahine satiates every urge. Discover your surroundings with island tours, private picnic trips, sunset cruises and snorkeling in the glittering lagoon. Take a glass bottom boat and shark feeding tour or explore Huahine's magnificent mountains, historic sites and tropical valleys on a 4x4 Jeep Safari. Horseback riding, deep-sea fishing and Scuba are always popular.

Reviews for Royal Huahine
We thought the property was fine for the price we paid, except that one night we were there had no water (was told that it was the whole island). Nice large room, with stairs to the water, so I snorkeled at sunrise (not much fish though). There is some coral off the beach that one can swim and snorkel there. Have beach volleyball net and kayaks to use. One other item to mention is that there was lack of sufficient staff to handle all the guests arrivals and queries throughout stay. Only 1 staff was there to handle all queries, including handing out the snorkel gear and life jacket.

The only reason anyone might want to stay here, is to experience an overwater bungalow for a relatively affordable price. Yes, the overwater bungalows are spacious, but don't expect anything else. Everything is old and rustic and the stories about wasps are true. They are everywhere. Furthermore, service is non-existent and the food we had was close to inedible. It was really bad. The handful of staff who work there really don't care. And oh yes, the way we described the resort was a "ghost resort". Hardly any guests, hardly any staff. No staff at the pool bar, none at the beach beach bar, nothing. Felt abandoned. In order to avoid any more disappointments, after the 1st day we went into town, bought enough food and drinks for the next two days and basically camped in our overwater bungalow.

I have so many mixed feelings about Royal Huahine Resort. Where do I start? PROS: Beautiful water and surrounding area Nice beach area that you can walk right out and snorkel Lots of beautiful fish to see Peaceful and quite. Large OTW bungalows Friendly staff Great food Free rental equipment for snorkel gear and kayak Free transportation to town 3 x a day You can check out and still use the amenities/shower/pool/towels, etc. CONS: Bungalows are outdated and need of some minor repairs AC unit outside was loud Had a few wasp around our bungalow No internet unless you pay for it With this being said, I will explain why I say diamond in the rough. The resort is in a really beautiful location. A little boat picked us up from a dock and took us to the resort. (a few people stated they came by 4x4) If you want peace and quite, you will get it here. You come here when you want to do nothing but relax. There were only 10 other couples at the resort so you rarely saw anyone except for at dinner. I loved it! (nice change of pace after coming from Bora Bora, which was to commercial for me) Pool and beach was never crowded. It was almost as if you had your own private little island. The food was good. We had local fish almost everyday but they do have other things on the menu if you are not into fish. We feed the tropical fish bread right off of our bungalow deck. They actually came right up to the top and ate. The beach was nice to snorkel off of. Just walk right out and start snorkeling. We saw manta ray and various tropical fish. It was nice to have transportation for free into the town of Fare to pick up a few things. Its a pretty bumpy ride in the beginning but then you get on paved roads and its all good from there. There are also several guided tours offered on the island which travel arrangements will be made from your hotel. Our bungalow was huge, but it just needed updating and a deep scrub in some areas. If you are into shiny, blingy or posh accommodations, you will not find them here but you also have to remember its a 3 star resort. So with that being said, I can get over not having posh accommodations to enjoy pure peace, quite and relaxation. It really depends on what type of person you are to decide if you want to stay here. If you want excitement and nightlife, this is not the place for you. If you want to relax in a beautiful environment, this is for you. I personally would go back here again.

We have been to Royal Huahine for a week end. the resort is son the main island but lost in the forest so you can only reach it by boat. We arrived around 3pm and had nothing to eat for lunch so we asked for something. We were told that everything was closed and we could eat for diner from 6pm. As we insist a bit We were offered some bread and butter. Unfortunately the butter was completely off so we end up eating plain toast. Resort is quite old and for the same price you can probably find better on the island. No more free boat after 5pm so If you plan to stay on the main island for diner, you will have to pay to come back to the resort.

The Royal Huahine was comfortable, clean, and very romantic. We'd wake up by diving off the hand rail into the South Pacific even during a rain shower. Giant sailboats cruise in the channel 1/4 mile away. The daily island cruise in the outrigger is a must. If you can run a outboard, you can rent you own to drive around the island of Huahine. I will look forward to going back.
