"Before Tradewinds Cat - Great place to kick off the trip"
top shelf 5+ stars spent $1700 for 1.5 days. Over water B. but well worth it. Feed the fish from end of Bed in the drop door. Night lights bring them in and buy the fish food at checkin. lots of fun. Rays seen from the deck, Great snorkle on the drift as well. wont go wrong with this one.
This was our honeymoon paradise in the Pacific. What a spot! Azure seas, white beaches & coconut palms as far as the eye can see. We wanted a 5 star overwater bungalow experience for our honeymoon and Le Taha'a delivered. We were welcomed with free champagne and daily sweet treats left in our room. In hindsight we are really glad we did the overwater stay here rather than Bora Bora. It is much more secluded and feels more exclusive. The coral garden within walking distance is a highlight - best snorkeling we found in F.P. Is it pricey' Yes. Is it worth it' Absolutely. The location, room, and service at Le Taha'a were all top notch. Come here with the attitude to spend some cash and you will really enjoy it.
"Beautiful Resort, Bad Food/Drink/Service"
The resort itself is stunning. The overwater bungalows are fantastic. WARNING: DO NOT book a beach bungalow or you will be extremely disappointed. The grounds are immaculate. Guest check-in and concierge very friendly. Now the cons: Drinks are literally $26 each. You can't taste the alcohol hardly. I saw many guests, including me, not even finish the drinks. Many guests were grumbling. The food is bad. You get tiny portions, overcooked/dry, When we saw the size of the meal, my wife and started laughing. Not only was it tiny, I have honestly had far better food at Denny's. I'm not kidding. You'll pay at least $40 per meal for this junk. We ordered the club sandwich at room service each night after that. It's $30 per club sandwich after delivery charge but it was decent tasting. $60 for two club sandwiches each night. Many of the guests were grumbling and trying to get a boat to eat at the mainland Tahaa. There is none. You are stuck. Service is bad at bar and restaurant. A few staff are friendly and helpful. Most ignore you, never check back, and you have to call them over to get anything else (water, etc.) The folks at the bar act like they hate their job. Not friendly or happy. If you go, do it for the resort itself and the surroundings. The dive is okay, corals not the greatest but okay. The mainland vanilla/pearl trip is very good. Do this. Just be prepared to get seriously nickled and dimed on bad drinks and bad food, given with bad service.
"Very peaceful. All your tired nerves get rested."
The over water bungalow was very well appointed and fairly large. The quality of service was exceptional and everybody went out of their way to help. The pool area is where all the activity is and there is a small private island where you can walk to. Tahaa is about a 40 minute boat ride from Raitea, which is a motu where the airport is located. Everything is taken care of by the Resort.
"Amazing! Fantastic! Relaxing!"
The over the water bungalows are so private and peaceful, you feel so comfortable. The staff, ALL the staff are amazing. Especially the wait staff, Christine from the Pearl Boutique and Stephanie from the Excursions desk. Everyone was so helpful and always asking how my stay was. I was there for 2 weeks and felt like it was a home away from home. Made many new friends and met some amazing people. There are multiple excursions, the Lagoon Safari with Samuel I strongly recommend along with the Jet Ski tour with Aru (sp'). The Cultural tour is very informative and interesting. The private tour of Raiatea is in my opinion a must with Warren Jr. Taxi and Tiara (sp') both every informative and provided many insites into their culture and people. Warren's wife makes an amazing fresh local authentic lunch, very yummy. The weekly Polynesian show is always very good with the dancers and the fire dancers. Very entertaining. I kayak, paddle boarded and snorkeled my days away if I wasn't on an excursion. I was never boarded it was the BEST vacation I have had.
