Location & Directions

Tahiti, French Polynesia

Radisson Plaza is situated on Lafayette Beach on the north coast of Tahiti. Only 10-minutes from downtown Papeete (the hotel runs a courtesy shuttle into Papeete twice daily).

When to go

Although there is a wet and a dry season in Tahiti the weather is tropical and generally sunny and warm, with just enough rain to keep the lush landscapes alive and green. If you're looking for emptier beaches, try traveling during the wet or "off" season, which generally runs from November to April. During this time, you can expect very high humidity with brief and frequent storms. January is the rainiest of the months. During this time, tropical storms may occur, but the Tahitian Islands have not experienced a cyclone since the early 90s. If you're traveling to the islands of Tahitit to scuba, you'll probably want to go in the dry or "high" season, when visibility is the best. The dry season runs from May to October and you can expect less rain, although occasional night time downpours are not uncommon. Due to tradewinds, July and August are the coolest times of the year and also tend to be the most crowded.
