LOCAL ESSENTIALS

THE PERFECT DAY

MORNING

After a full buffet breakfast at the Tiare Restaurant, an adventuress half-day 4x4 Jeep safari tour to the lush & rugged interior of the island, along the Papenoo Valley. A different side of Tahiti awaits you with amazing waterfalls and enormous green peeks such as Mt. Orehena the highest point of Tahiti. To cool off, while on the excursion, you can even take a dip in the refreshingly cool Papenoo River. Alternatively, if you wish for a more hands on, you can hop on a SSV Rhino and drive your own 4x4 along to the Papenoo Valley with your guide leading you the way.

AFTERNOON

After an exciting morning, enjoy a poolside lunch of the typically Tahitian dish of poisson cru: raw tuna marinated in lemon and coconut milk. My favorite dish ever. Afterwards, take the shuttle into Papeete and visit the famous local market. At the entry of the market you can find fresh ice cold coconuts. Purchase one for a few hundred francs and let the island revitalize you with the chilled juice as you see what the local merchants have to offer: handcrafted clothes, woven goods and world class vanilla pods. If you have the time and inclination and you are looking for the ultimate souvenir, you can even get a tattoo here. Return to the hotel for a well-deserved nap in one of the hammocks spread along the resort grounds.

EVENING

For a perfect sunset, jump on a jet ski & cruise the lagoon and watch the sun sink behind the neighboring island of Moorea while you discover a sand bank and enjoy a bottle of Chilled French Champagne. During this time have your bungalow romantically decorated for a great surprise. A perfect dinner to end a perfect day. Head towards the port of Papeete to dine at a local “roulotte”. A local flavor awaits you with everything from fresh grilled fish to French crepes made in front of your eyes. IF you're lucky your meal will be accompanied by live ukulele music or traditional songs. .

INSIDER TIPS

LOCAL CULTURE

GREETING

It's the custom to shake hands at least once a day with people you know. If you are meeting a group, you should shake hands with everybody, even if you don't know them.


LANGUAGE

The official language of French Polynesia is French, although the unofficial language, Tahitian, is probably more widely spoken. English is spoken by some native islanders and most will be happy to answer questions and help you.


TAHITIAN LANGUAGE

Learning a few Tahitian words will open the door to getting to know the locals better.


TASTING LOCAL DISHES

Tahitians like people who are willing to try their local dishes, such as poisson cru (marinated raw fish). If someone offers, you should try it, but it doesn't mean you have to finish it.


Tipping

There is no obligation to tip, but it is always appreciated. When you arrive at the hotel and this subject is still not clear to you please see the concierge and we will explain everything to you.


DID YOU KNOW ?

TAHITI Golf Atimaono

Tahiti's Atimaono golf course is located about 45 minutes from the hotel. A cotton and then a sugarcane plantation, it became Tahiti's first golf course in 1970.

Bring a universal adaptor as you may have difficulty purchasing one here. The voltage is 220v and you will mostly find type E power plugs (French plugs format)

Reef shoes

Take reef shoes with you. Corals, shells and fish may hurt if you step on them with bare feet. If you need to purchase them when you arrive please see the Concierge desk and we will advise you where to buy.
