Reviews for Le Taha'a Island Resort & Spa
Let's start saying that this place is beyond expectation, beyond the most unreasonable and daring fantasy. The place is run by the sweetest, most efficient, adorable and gorgeous Manager and most charming G.M. Spotless, you will find people working at all times, from housekeeping to landscapers. They all will dispense their best "ia orana", their local Hello, out of their best smile and politeness. Over the water Bungalows: just unbelievable, furnished with everything you may need. The outside deck will accommodate most of your relaxing time, where you can step down to a lower deck and enter the calm, clear like a glass water and be surrounded by multicolored fishes that will dance around you, including gorgeous stingrays. The bungalows is very clean, serviced twice a day by very attentive housekeepers, with espresso coffee makers, safe, A/C, TV, and a breathtaking view from panoramic windows. Gently breezed and absolutely quite all day. Beach villas: more spacious available to you that include a garden, a private, small pool, a studio/living room, a large foyer, large bedroom and large bathroom with an inside shower and outside tub/shower. Beachfront. You can take few steps off the deck and be in the water or relax on provided lounges and hammock. Water is clear, warm and shallow to a point where you can cross to get the the next Motu and the water will not pass your chest heights. Restaurant: on the expensive side, but the food...OMG..... Breakfast is recommended to be included in your package. Best selection and quantity. If you eat enough, that will keep you good all day. You can still have something to eat at the pool restaurant for about 20 to 40 dollars per person. The airport to Hotel transfer is run by the hotel itself by very nice and helpful crew. The transfer lasts about 40 minutes that will give opportunity to take amazing pictures of the island's surroundings. Also a boat transfer (free of charges) runs few times a day to the main Island (5 minutes run) and allow you to go to a local emporium to buy drinks,juices, water, some food, snacks or go to nearby pizza place to order pizza to go to brink back at your place. Suggestions: Go there, at least once in your lifetime. You must!!! Bring along water shoes, due to presence of corals that may cut your feet. Bring water even though the place will provide you 2 small bottle of water per day. Bring fins, possibly the short ones they sell for water aerobics. Bring snorkel gear, at least googles. Bring inflatable devices, mattress or anything that will allow you to use to enjoy floating at leisure or swim over the Coral Garden on the north side of the Resort, and float over the most amazing underwater sea life. There is no much group activities. People are left alone to enjoy quite moments. The place has a gym and a spa. I suggest to use the spa for any of the offered massages. Anything you may need, just talk to the front desk and you can make sure it will be taken care of. In conclusion this is an 6 stars place. Way above imagination. Oh...bring handkerchiefs....I promise you will cry leaving that place. .

We arrived to Taha'a for the first portion of our vacation and quite frankly wish we would have just stayed. The water was warm and so clear and about knee high and could walk to a small island in the middle of the lagoon. A short walk and across the water you could float near by in a coral garden which we had a guide all you have to do it ask the pool guys and one will take you free of charge., we brought along fish food as you can but I wouldn't recommend it. The fish could sense it and were surrounding us, it was awesome but after a while kind of got difficult to moved between the swarms of fish and coral. Still very beautiful! They gave us bottled water whenever we asked for it at the front desk and the house keeping always stocked the fridge with it as well. We took a jet ski tour which included a visit to a pearl farm, shark and sting ray snorkeling and snorkeling throughout a beautiful coral garden then had an amazing lunch on a private island. we booked through the hotel, I wish I could remember the gentleman's name but it is escaping me..he works exclusively with the resort. He was so helpful and very professional. The restaurant was good. Nice servers and some good options. Lunch at the pool bar was nice too and the swim up bar. I highly recommend this resort!

This was our first resort in Tahiti so it was very pleasant and enjoyable because of the impact of seeing French Polynesia for the first time. The staff is incredibly welcoming and friendly. The resort is a bit run down, the main breakfast areas decks were dilapidated and in disrepair. The food from all of their restaurants was pretty bad, we our first good meal when we left the resort at the airport of all places! The beaches were dirty, there was garbage all down the coral reef beach area. My wife was walking from that area and hit her foot on a rock which removed her toe nail! They really should pave and routinely clean that area for safety and health reasons IMHO.

This is truly a Polynesian paradise but it has some things it can improve on. The villas over the water are gorgeous with wonderful views and amazing decks. The bed could be more comfortable. The maintenance and the food at this resort could be vastly improved. Not one deck at the Vanilla restaurant was available for sitting because the floors were torn up and not repaired. Other boards on the walkways were also in need of repair. A walkway out to the coral gardens for snorkeling would be must appreciated as there are ricks in the sand that are hard to see. I lost a toenail here. It was very painful. It's also hard to get into the water at the coral gardens because the waterline has so many pine cone type pods in it and the water is only a couple of inches above the coral. On the other hand, the spa treatment was first class and the jet ski trip we took we saw dolphins and rays. The island of Taha'a is not much to see, but we did rent a car and drive around it. Most places to eat are closed during the daytime hours. The boat shuttles back and forth to the island were nice, but there's not much there. If you are doing this island plus Bora Bora, go here first so that you are not disappointed. The food is just so expensive yet not good either.

We came from Bora Bora as we spent a part of our honeymoon in French Polynesia. We had an overwater bungalow which was big and nicely decorated with flowers and we got a bottle of champagne. The matrace of the bed seemed to be old and wasn't really comfortable anymore. The service was - compared to other hotels in French Polynesia - slower and less polite. The location of the hotel is great. What we disliked was that Wi-Fi is available at lobby and pool (no Wi-Fi in the rooms) - the result is that most of the guests are busy with their smartphones during breakfast or dinner. Under consideration of our previous experiences in French Polynesia and the price we would check out another location for our next visit.
