La Pirogue Api

La Pirogue Api is located on a small private motu off the eastern coast of Taha'a. Just twenty minutes away by boat from Raiatea's airport, this boutique hotel commands beautiful views of Taha'a and Bora Bora in the distance. Nestled amidst a lush coconut grove, this intimate retreat provides blissful seclusion and an authentic French Polynesian atmosphere. 

La Pirogue Api has only four Beach Suites, creating an intimate and exclusive experience for guests. The suites are traditionally designed with modern amenities such as air conditioning, Jacuzzis and luxury bedding. The open-air restaurant serves a Continental breakfast each morning and home-cooked meals in the evenings that feature freshly caught fish and local ingredients. Each suite has direct access to the water and complimentary activities such as snorkeling and kayaking give you the opportunity to explore the coral gardens teeming with colorful marine life.
