From the Harper Collection:
Captivating resort on a private islet off the coast of Tahaa, surrounded by a turquoise lagoon and backdropped by Bora Bora’s dramatic profile. Unspoiled Tahaa is known for its vanilla plantations and black-pearl farms. It is reached via a 35-minute launch ride from the airport on the neighboring island of Raiatea (or preferably by a 10-minute helicopter flight from Bora Bora). Sixty air-conditioned thatched cottage suites are built out over the lagoon. The interiors feature pitched woven ceilings, blond wood floors and tapa cloth adornments. Each suite opens onto a panoramic deck with cushioned lounge chairs, a thatched dining area and steps leading down to the crystalline waters; #3-#6 provide especially romantic views of Bora Bora. Baths come equipped with deep tubs and walk-in showers. A luncheon café sits adjacent to a palm-fringed infinity pool, while the two splendid restaurants occupy a cathedral-like pavilion. This is the site for breakfast buffets and French/ Polynesian dinners featuring delicious seafood options. Snorkeling, day sails and sunset yacht cruises are available, along with invigorating massages and other spa treatments. Amiable and house-proud staff, many hailing from the island of Tahaa, where traditional Polynesian lifestyles are still maintained.
