Located on the secluded Motu Tautau facing the vanilla fragrant island of Taha’a on one side and the magnificent silhouette of Bora Bora on the other, the resort inspired by Polynesian architecture and style, is a true South Pacific Hideaway. Suspended above the lagoon, 45 overwater bungalows feature a wrap-around deck with steps down to the crystal clear waters, while opening out to the white sands, 12 Beach Villas secrete a sparkling plunge pool within their own walled tropical gardens and thatched roof cabanas. Enjoy enchanting sunsets, experience the talents of our chefs either at « La plage », our beach restaurant, at « Le Vanille » or at Ohiri, a gourmet haven. Snorkel in the coral garden just steps from the resort, explore Taha’a the Vanilla Island, or just delight in a lazy ‘farniente’, lulled by the lagoon’s soft surge. Welcome to Le Taha’a Island Resort & Spa, the bespoke sanctuary of your dreams.
Insularity imposes its own acute awareness of the scarcity of natural resources. Adopting a sustainable lifestyle is the logical solution!
Here, hotel life is organised so as to use local resources. Constructed with 90% island materials this establishment has adapted its menu to match what is available on the island. Rather than contributing to CO2 emissions by importing beef, lamb, veal and poultry, not found on the island, the Chef makes imaginative use of the vegetables, fruit, fish and pork that can be found in abundance. Before purchase, they make sure the minimum sizes of fish, langoustines and crabs are respected. And food waste is unthinkable: vegetable waste goes into the compost, and the rest goes to a pig farmer in exchange for ten piglets a year.
