About
Description
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 More 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. Less

Quiet, beautiful, historical, and a wonderful restaurant. Fresh water pool plus lagoon nearby. Not much snorkeling. Local village within walking distance. Restful. Wifi worked well. Highly recommended of you want to do absolutely nothing.

I am not sure about smoking in the hotel or on the property. I wish I could tell you where to find out. We know it is more relaxed in general but none of us smoke.
