Huahine is lush, beautiful and quiet: a real piece of paradise. It was our second stop in French Polynesia and we stayed there 3 nights. We had a Premium Lake Bungalow overlooking an amazing lake: It was delightfully different from many other places in French Polynesia. +++ in a nutshell: - Bungalow: built in a typical Polynesian style: large, comfortable...

We stayed at the Maitai La Pita the last night of our stay on Huahine to celebrate our anniversary. It is one of only three 'hotels' on the island. We were pleased on all levels. Beautiful, very modern accomodations, air conditioning (a rarity), yet keeping with the french polynesian style and culture. Pool was very nice, beach sandy - also...

We have traveled to Huahine 4 times in the last 9 years. We have never had a bad experience with any of the establishments where we have stayed including the Maitai LaPita Village. It is the newest hotel on the island and by far the nicest. It has all the amenities including an infinity pool and a small but very...

We spent a day at the Maitai resort on our French Polynesian vacation. Huahine is one of the most beautiful islands, and Maitai is one of the most beautiful resorts. The beach was lovely, the pools clean, fresh and perfect for a swim. Nice chairs around the pool and adjustable umbrellas if you want shade. The food was outstanding. It's...

When our travel agent suggested a stop-over in Huahine between our stays in Tahiti, Moorea and Bora Bora, my wife and I didn't know what to expect. We found Huahine to be the "cleanest" of all the islands. I would agree with the other reviewers regarding the beauty and tranquility of the Maitai La Pita Village but would also suggest...

If you are looking for glitzy nightlife, tourist traps and crowds, don't go to Huahine. But if you are looking for paradise, this is it. The island is low key, interesting and gorgeous. The Maitai Lapita Village Hotel is simply wonderful. The accommodations are beautiful and private. The pool and beach are exquisite. The food is superb. And perhaps best...

I hope that people planning a honeymoon or anniversary trip through the Society Islands include Huahine in their island hopping itinerary. This is a perfect stop between Moorea and Bora Bora. The Maitai Lapita has an excellent location: close to the airport, spectacular white sand beach, beautiful turquoise lagoon and a quaint town (Fare) within 5 min walk along the...

The hotel is situated on the ocean with one whole side of the dinning area open to the water, which is an amazing array of shades of aqua and blue. A stunning pool off the dining area/deck overlooks the ocean. What is truly exceptional about Maitai La Pita is the attention to detail--the "rooms" are crafted after traditional boat houses,...

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
