Tahiti

Royal Tahitien

The Royal Tahitien is a small, Polynesian hotel with a laid-back, mid-century modern, retro island and a tropical garden setting at the edge of a black-sand beach. Within the hotel’s seven acres of delightful tropical gardens and koi ponds, you will discover a lovely pool and Jacuzzi framed by rock waterfalls. The simple, clean guest rooms are situated around the gardens and deliver excellent value.

Its reputation for delivering authentic Polynesian hospitality is best on display at their popular restaurant and bar which is set on the edge of the black sand beach. The Royal Tahitien is located just minutes from downtown Papeete and the airport making it an excellent choice for those looking to explore the city, or overnight before a flight.

Our Insights

The Royal Tahitien is a solid choice for budget accommodation near downtown Papeete. The rooms are simple and clean, with a retro-sixties style. We love the well-kept gardens and koi ponds, friendly, helpful staff and delightful restaurant. The black-sand beach is not really the best spot for swimming and lounging, but the sound of the waves certainly adds to the Polynesian ambience when sipping a well-mixed cocktail at the hotel bar.
