Pension Taitaa is a small family-run guesthouse on the island of Tubuai, within close proximity to the island's main village of Mataura and the lagoon. Run by a husband and wife team with a rich knowledge of the surrounding island, Pension Taitaa is an authentic and intimate retreat into the French Polynesian way of life. Each room has a private bathroom, mosquito net and terrace overlooking the property's tropical gardens. Daily food is prepared by Nathalie, the wife, and Nariiorono, the husband, organizes daily activities that include hikes, fishing, and motu picnics.
Le Manotel Rurutu is located on the eastern coast of Rurutu, just 2 miles south of the main village of Moerai. Bordered by the ocean and a brilliant white sand beach on one side and a 'makatea' or fossil coral cliff on the other side, Le Manotel offers an authentic respite from everyday life. This charming guest house has just six traditional bungalows and is run by a married couple who love to share their passion for their island home.
