Expert Review

Tahiti’s newest resort (opened in March 2009) is its least traditional. With 121 suites (most with kitchenettes) in a series of three-story buildings connected via open-air interior walkways, it has no beach and no overwater bungalows. What it does have is fabulous sunset and Moorea views from its pool bar and a small private motu with a wooden dock; spacious accommodations with modern black-and-white décor, free Wi-Fi, and large terraces; a striking infinity pool with a waterfall wall; a small Manea Spa; and the hip Punavai Lounge Bar, which attracts young locals with its trendy music and cocktails. There’s also a small, swim-up pool bar and one restaurant, Vaitohi, set back in a garden and offering a mix of Polynesian and international fare. Operated by Tahitian-owned SPM Hotels (which also runs Pearl resorts), the property is located close to both the airport and Papeete.
