Hi! We have travelled all over the world and stayed everywhere from backpacker's hostels to ultraluxe resorts. Maitai Lapita Village is a very comfortable, very well-maintained property that would be appealing for folks at either end of the spectrum. The rooms are huge. Ours had a deck overlooking the pond. The views from the restaurant are lovely. The staff could...

We stayed at this hotel for three nights. Despite terrible weather (it rained for our entire trip!), we had a great time and this was a nice respite. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms well appointed and spacious, and the bathrooms clean and modern. The hotel is built on a cultural site - which is well documented in...

We stayed at Hotel Maitai for 3 nights in the middle of our 11 day Tahitian excursion and loved it. The people were absolutely amazing and treated us like royalty (we're not). The restaurant served up great meals with that same outstanding service. The rooms are very nicely appointed, comfortable bed and a bathroom big enough to hold a dance....

Just arrived back in Sydney after a dream holiday at Hotel Maitai. We love this place, not just the hotel which served up fantastic food, very special accommodation (my wife and I in premium over lake bungalows, and 2 daughters in premium garden), and great service, but also because this island feels so authentic and welcoming. The people of Huahine...

This was our second island and we had stayed at the Intercontinental on Moorea, which was nice, but the bungalows here are very spacious and very private.

As part of our 7 night bareboat charter cruising the Leeward islands of French Polynesia, we chose to have dinner at their restaurant. Simply a short dingy ride from our anchored yacht, the staff was very welcoming. We easily made reservations for our party of nine, including 5 children and 4 adults, that same afternoon. Our table was ready when...

We enjoyed our stay at Lapita. The bungalows are spacious and very well equipped. A challenge is to find the TV which is well hidden :-) Premium bungalows on the lake are beautiful and so quite but beware of mosquitos... Bring some repulsive with you. To summarize Maitai Lapita is the definitive place to stay when traveling to Huahine !

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A boundless tropical garden, the secret island of Huahine is a natural sanctuary with many archaeological wonders and other landmarks of its rich Polynesian culture and history. Set on a white sand beach, the Hotel Maitai Lapita Village is composed of thirty bungalows, half of them set around a natural spring pond covered with water lilies. The restaurant, bar and pool face the lagoon and a magnificent white sand beach that borders the crystal clear lagoon. The sunsets here are spectacular and offer a panoramic view of the three other Leeward Islands: Raiatea, Tahaa and Bora-Bora. Conveniently located at the entrance of Fare, the island's main village, The Maitai Lapita Village is emblematic of the mix of nature and culture that is unique to the enchanting island of Huahine. Here you will discover luxuriant vegetation, private bays and inlets, heavenly motus, but also a rich cultural and historical heritage. This charming hotel village naturally blends into its environment as it combines local traditional materials and modern recycled ones. The "Omai" restaurant offers delectable dishes for all tastes using many local fruits and vegetables and of course fresh fish. The hotel's architecture draws inspiration from the great sailing canoes of the islands ancestors, the Lapita people, and the saga of their migration through the Pacific Islands. Archaeological excavations were undertaken on the very site of the hotel and have contributed greatly to our knowledge of the Lapita people and the way they lived. Many ancient artifacts, some over 1000 years old, were recovered and some are on display in the hotel's own museum gallery, including hooks, domestic tools, ornamental pendants, etc. On the island of Huahine, also called "memory island," many monuments from the pre-European era can easily be visited: open air temples (marae), ancient lake dwelling villages, a great attraction to do with a tour guide. These well preserved sites are among the largest in French Polynesia. ... more   less
