As soon as you arrive on the island of Tahaa in French Polynesia, you'll notice the rich aroma of vanilla in the air. Tahaa, also called the Vanilla Island, produces the majority of Polynesia's vanilla since the humid shade of the island's tropical forest is a perfect environment for the sensitive vanilla orchid.
The resort is located on one of the small motu (tiny islands) that surround the main island. The resort is set on a coral reef in the bright clear waters of the lagoon.
Things to Do
The resort has a fresh water swimming pool right next to the beach, a beach jacuzzi, and a luxurious spa. Outdoor spa treatments are just incredible - book a massage in the lagoon on a specially-designed massage table surrounded by the blue waters of the South Pacific at this unique island spa.
Choose from a range of complimentary activities, including beach volley ball, kayaking, outrigger canoeing, snorkeling, tennis and wind surfing.
You can also try one of the excursions (fees apply): book a tour of a vanilla plantation, visit a black pearl farm, go scuba diving, take a helicopter tour, watch shark feeding, and enjoy a romantic sunset cruise.
Rooms & Suites
The resort has 48 luxury Over Water Suites with private patios, a deck with direct access to the lagoon, air-conditioning, television, CD player and IDD telephone. The 12 spacious Beach Villas have private pools, a great feature on a romantic getaway.
