Pension Opeha is exactly what you're looking for, if a private and secluded place is what you're after. Well-equipped bungalows with ensuite bathroom, kitchen and most importantly in the humid conditions: A/C. The breakfast is good and the private transport from and to the airport fair-priced at 1,000F. You can take the two free kayaks to Motu Iriru for a...

Travelled with a French friend who booked this on the advice of colleagues in Papeete. We were met at the airport by Emma. She stopped in Urutoa for us, showing us where to buy food, find an ATM. Emma seemed to be on call to take us to the roullotte and back, drop us in Urutoa then collected us later,...

First, the good parts: Emma (the owner) and Robatine (staff) are both very friendly and helpful. They'll help you arrange excursions, car rental, ordering dinner etc. They'll do your laundry! Emma will pick you up and drive you to the airport right on time. She's also very responsive to email inquiries (in French only!). Robatine speaks some English. The bungalows...

From a referral, we biked to Pension Opeha to rent kayaks for the day. We were told that was not a problem and that we could pay when we got back. Our goal was to kayak the river. When we were nearly 1/2 way there (about 1 hour worth of hard kayaking), a speedboat came by and DEMANDED we returned...

Stayed 3 nights here in January 2014. We got picked up at the airport, on time. The pension is not near the main village, around 10/15 mins car ride. After 9pm, they lock the main garage door, because the owners don’t stay here. There are 5 bungalows. Inside and outside the bungalows look new and clean. Our bungalow was simple,...

Bit of a mix up with our booking and no pick up waiting but this was quickly solved and we were soon settled in. The bungalows are well done and comfortable. They do a trip from their jetty to Tahaa but the weather wasn't great so we decided not to go in the morning and explored the island instead. Tuhiata...

Kore au e ngaro, he kākano i ruia mai i Raiatea. The best of times was being on Raiatea… I had the opportunity to travel to Tahiti for an arts forum with my University from Aotearoa, New Zealand. One of the main reasons for taking the trip was the opportunity to travel to one of the spiritual homelands of Māori...

Let's be honest : you don't go to Opeha for the swimming pool (there is none) or for the luxury amenities or for perfect candlelight diners...you go there cause value for money is good, and it is. The bungalows are OK, well equipped for those who want to cook their own meals. You have direct access to the ocean, and...

I can't say enough good things about our experience here.The bungalows were immaculate and the owners were kind and accommodating. Of course the views were magnificent. We stayed in several resorts on other islands, but nowhere did we have a better experience. The boat excursions offered by the owners are quite reasonable and enjoyable. An outing to one of the...

Our bungalow was immaculate, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was rather generous and of an exceptional quality. The owner organized a very nice boat tour for us, which included a trip up a river, a visit to an archaeological site, and a picnic on a motu. It was an excellent overview of the island. Compared...

“Pension Opeha requires payment in cash at the end of your stay. The only currency that is accepted is French Polynesian Francs. No credit cards or checks accepted. Plan accordingly if you come with euros, dollars or other currency.”
