Amy Adejokun Section editor

A large property not far from Faaa airport, several facilities, a very good standing, and excellent food: The Intercontinental is one of the best hotels in Tahiti. It is a pity that its decoration lacks some originality, namely the rooms, and the cost of the food is very high.

    Location 7.26 /10

    The hotel is 2 miles from the airport (nearly 10 min.) and 5 miles from Papeete (20-30 min).

    Accommodation 8.45 /10

    No bad surprises regarding the rooms. You will find here all equipments that&bnsp;you should expect from a good standing hotel. There is Internet connection (high speed ADSL), an ironing table and several home products in the bathroom. The decor is in a local style (basketry and bamboo) but lacks some identity. The sizes of the three categories of accommodation are good (lagoon, panoramic, and overwater): between 325 and 30 feet˛. Of course the hotel has stilted bungalows (overwater) which have a terrace and a private pontoon directly on the lagoon.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    The Intercontinental is one of the most preferred hotels in Tahiti with 32 acres of green garden, its excellent standing, and its maginificant view of Moorea. It has a total of 263 units: 179 totally renovated rooms with view of the lagoon and the garden, 60 rooms with panoramic view (including the presidential suite) and 32 stilted bungalows and a presidential suite. Its two beautiful overflow pools overlook the twin island of Moorea located 11 miles in front. The general architecture is a bit outdated (several 3-floor buildings aligned facing the sea and two series of stilted bungalows). But maintenance and cleanliness are impeccable. You will appreciate the friendly atmosphere. You regret the absence of land sports equipments.

    Food and drink 8.95 /10

    The hotel has two restaurants: the Lotus and the Tiare. The first is open for lunch and dinner. It occupies two beautiful stilted bungalows and has a beautiful view of the lagoon and the ocean. You can eat an excellent a la carte cuisine prepared by a chef who has experience in a 3-star Michelin restaurant (Marc Ebelin),
    The Tiare has buffet or a la carte cuisine located aside the reception. This is where you can have breakfasts. Directly near the main pool, it has a fine setting on several levels. Note that it is open non-stop from 6 AM to 10 PM and that it hosts "show buffets", on Wednesday, friday, and Saturday (Grand Ballets only on Friday and Saturday).

    Beach 6.70 /10

    Fine sand lovers will be disappointed: there is no true beach on the property. There are however small areas of artificial sand along the two pools of the complex and near the beautiful artifical lagoon near the stilted bungalows. You can swim with colored fishes and rays (easy to caress). You will find the usual range of deckchairs and sunshades. Towels are kindly available free of charge. You will note the presence of a very well equipped boat club

    To know


    The Intercontinental has one of the largest hotel properties on the island, namely 32 acres. It has few sports facilities but has a "health" arrowed course - 1 mile (and some apparatus).
    It exclusively plans "The major ballets in Tahiti", the best folk troup of the archipelago, two times a week (shows which attracts several locals).
    The hotel has 3 laundries with washing machines and dryers (free).

      • Location 7.95

      The Sofitel Maeva Beach will not seduce you at first sight with its massive architecture typical of the 70's and a location too close to the road. But it has a beautiful inside decor which has been the subject of particular attention, namely in the rooms. It also has a beautiful restaurant area and a pool on the edge of the beach. Another asset is the good and relatively affordable food.

      • Location 7.0

      The Manava Suite Resort Tahiti is brand new, beautifully designed and on the seafront. It is near the airport and the city of Papeete, just a few bus stops away from a shopping centre, where you can do your shopping and stock up on items which are cheaper than in the city: sun cream, snorkelling gear, sportswear, etc. All of Manava's suites are also equipped with a small kitchen area which is a non-negligible feature if you wish to keep your food budget low in Tahiti. This place is ideal for families and groups of friends, but couples will love it too!

      • Location 6.5

      The Tiare Tahiti Noa Noa, a friendly little hotel in the town of Papeete, is perfect for a stopover in Tahiti and it makes a great base from which to explore the Tahitian capital on foot. With the crafts market and harbour nearby, the hotel is perfectly located to get a good feel of the town both by day and night, thanks to the famous 'Roulottes' that set up stall on the seafront from the late afternoon onwards.

      The Meridien is the most remote hotel from the city and located to the southwest of Papeete. It has a fine setting, one of the largest sandy bottom pools of the Pacific, a very beautiful lagoon, and a gourmet restaurant. The rooms are spacious, well equipped but however lack warmth.

      An institution midway between hotel and guesthouse. The decor, which does not seem to have changed since the sixties, will please lovers of this style. Located in the western suburb of Papeete, on the edge of a charmless black sand beach, the Royal Tahitian enoys nevertheless a pleasant setting, well maintained accomodations and a nice restaurant.

      A hotel of an international standard, offering comfort and services of a hotel... of an international standard. No bad surprises. the facilities are impeccable. The Sheration Tahiti does not have the most beautiful seafront location but it has the advantage of being very close to the airport, and thus offers a practical and comfortable stop for passing travellers.
