Warm tropical year round temperatures, the Society Islands are a tropical destination so humidity, rain, sunshine and heat are all to be considered.

Description

Royal Huahine is tucked away in a small, private bay on the island of Huahine in lush, tropical surroundings. Royal Huahine is a simple, peaceful resort truly embodying Tahitian hospitality and warmth. Relax and unwind in authentic Polynesian style.

Royal Huahine (Formerly Te Tiare Beach Resort) is an intimate resort where fine cuisine, personal attention and spacious bungalows enhance the breathtaking Polynesian environment. The hotel is accessed after a short and beautiful lagoon boat ride from the airport and is 15 minutes from the traditional Polynesian village of Fare.

This resort's 41 Garden, Beach and Over-Water Bungalows all face west and enjoy spectacular views of the islands Raiatea and Taha’a as well as ravishing sunsets. Comfortable rattan furnishings and pandanus thatched roofs create an inviting island feel and although simple in design, rooms are spacious and homely with wonderful wooden decks from which to take in the tropical surrounds.

Dine on the freshest lobster, seafood and abundant local produce at the Ari'i Restaurant where Polynesian, French and International cuisine is all served in a romantic beachfront setting with the warmest of smiles. Couple this with lavish buffet breakfasts and relaxed casual lunches at the hotel's beach bar and all your culinary needs are well and truly taken care of.

Days can be spent snorkeling, diving, kayaking and exploring Royal Huahine's tropical surrounds. Enjoy a private picnic by some of the world's loveliest turquoise lagoons, a 4x4 safari tour, sunset cruise or get close and personal with the sharks and go shark feeding. Activities abound but having a languorous massage, relaxing by the hotel's freeform pool or under the shady palms on the pristine white sand beach are equally inviting.

The 19 Garden Bungalows have large wooden sun decks and are nestled in the lush vegetation of the resort's gardens and five further Beach Bungalows enjoy stunning lagoon and ocean views. Six Lagoon Overwater Bungalows are close to the beach and have glass block showers and Jacuzzi baths and from the 11 Deep Overwater Bungalows, which have unobstructed views of the ocean and the outer islands, you can dive straight off the deck into the cooling ocean below. All bungalows are west facing so the spectacular tropical sunset can be enjoyed each evening.

Rudy Markmiller made a fortune in the overnight courier business in California and then spent more than a decade -- and a sizable chunk of his loot -- building this luxury resort, one of French Polynesia's finest. Although it's on the main island, guests are ferried here from Fare, which makes this seem like a remote offshore resort (never fear: a shuttle boat makes the 10-min. run to and from Fare every hour from 5:30am-11pm). You will land at a thatched-roof, overwater structure housing a reception area, lounge, bar, and dining room serving excellent international cuisine. A long pier connects this central complex to a westward-facing, white-sand beach with gorgeous sunsets over Raiatea and Tahaa out on the horizon. The lagoon is not deep here, but it's still good for swimming and snorkeling over coral heads close to shore. You can use canoes, paddleboats, and kayaks, or cool off in a beachside swimming pool equipped with its own terrific bar serving libations and snacks all afternoon. Diving, sailing, fishing, picnicking on a motu, horseback riding, and touring the maraes cost extra. Jet skis and water-skiing are available, though not in front of the resort.

The 41 spacious bungalows are as luxuriously appointed as any in French Polynesia. You won't have a fish-viewing glass panel in the floor, but you can step out to a huge L-shaped deck, half of it under the shade of a thatched roof. The decks also have privacy screens so your neighbors can't see you dining in the nude, or whatever. Steps lead into the lagoon from the decks of the 11 deep overwater bungalows that have spa tubs as well as showers in their bathrooms (all other units, including five shallow overwater models, have large showers). Six bungalows sit beside the beach, but the garden units (the least expensive here) don't have unimpeded views of the lagoon.
