Set on a private motu, or small islet, in one of the most beautiful lagoons in the world is this hideaway of lush tropical gardens and pristine beaches. Directly across, and visible from bungalows, the spa, and restaurants, are the craggy green peaks of Mount Otemanu.

Sprinkled across the motu are 15 immaculately furnished beachfront villas and 100 over-water bungalows with high ceilings, thatched roofs, and glass panels (including one on the floor in the over-water bungalows). Inside, the traditional teak furnishings are complemented by cozy cotton and linen textures in a soothing palette of creams and mocha.
Roomy living spaces open onto a furnished deck for private lounging and, in OWB, a stepladder leading into the lagoon. Bungalows are stocked with snorkel gear, iPod docking stations, satellite TV, and WiFi access.
The resort offers four restaurants as well as in-bungalow dining. Sit at the bar at the Sunset Restaurant and, with a cocktail in hand, watch Mother Earth paint the sky into the evening. For a post-swim option, there’s Faré Hoa, a casual beachside café that serves a killer seared Wagyu beef with goat cheese and caramelized nuts.
Don’t leave the resort without visiting the spa and partaking in one of their signature rituals, which blend ancient Polynesian practices with essential oils and scrubs made with local ingredients.

This Tahitian outpost defines laid back luxury with impeccable service, a blissed-out spa and an exotic blend of barefoot luxury and Polynesian traditions.
