Staying in Tahiti
Paradise awaits in Papeete
Though it may be just one of more than a hundred islands that comprise French Polynesia, Tahiti shines as one of the most intensely beautiful places in the South Pacific. Its capital, Papeete, is the busiest spot on this otherwise quiet island, boasting an interesting blend of French, Polynesian and Asian cultures.
Stay close to the shops and cafes in Papeete by booking your accommodation at the Hotel Tahiti Nui on the Avenue du Prince Hinoi, or journey just 10 minutes from town to the Radisson Plaza Resort in Arue where a room with a view isn't hard to come by.
Indulge in true Tahitian style
Leave your weekday worries behind and get down to some serious rest and relaxation by booking your stay at a luxury Tahiti resort. The 5-star Le Meridien is an easy trip from both Papeete and the airport, with a variety of lagoon-view and garden-view rooms as well as a dozen luxurious overwater bungalows.
On the edge of the lagoon is the 4-star Manava Suite Resort – where modern touches finish off the duplexes and suites and the on-site spa is ready to ease you into pure serenity – while the Intercontinental Tahiti Resort and Spa's exquisitely decorated rooms mean you won't want to leave, even just to venture onto your private terrace.
Stay in Faa'a or further beyond
Almost smack bang in the heart of the South Pacific, Tahiti is equally as accessible from east Asia, the western United States, Australia's east coast and South America's west. Tahiti's international airport is located in the district of Faa'a, just a few minutes from Papeete.
The Tahiti Airport Motel is ideally located close to the terminal, with king, twin and family rooms to suit one and all. Beyond Papeete and Faa'a, more Tahiti accommodation options are scattered around the island in Puna'auia, Pa'ea and beyond.
