We loved our stay here. All employees were sweet and attentive. The grounds are spectacular, the vanishing edge pool is designed perfectly and it's so cozy in the bungalow overlooking the fresh water lagoon with fish and eels when some sudden rainstorms come through

We enjoyed our time at Maitai Lapita Village. All the staff were lovely, the nicest people! When we arrived we were served a nice cold drink and we were given an explanation about the accommodation which was helpful. The accommodation was great, plenty of space and really liked the room layout. Beautiful gardens around the entire place. They had a...

We chose this island and hotel because we wanted to get away from the commercialism of the large resorts and chain hotels on Bora Bora, Tahiti etc. We were not disappointed. We had a large bungalow overlooking the natural lagoon covered in water lilies. It was peaceful, well cared for, and we spent many hours on the large veranda sunning...

Wow! We loved this hotel, and this island, so much, it almost broke our hearts to leave! The Maitai Lapita Village is a beautiful and welcoming oasis in the middle of paradise. The hotel and grounds are absolutely charming, as well as historic, with several archaeological elements on site, as well as a small museum. The bungalows are clean, spacious,...

I spent four nights in a lake front bungalow in December thanks to my wonderful travel agent Noy S at Tahiti Legends. What a serene, lovely property. The bungalow was beautiful. The pool and beach were exquisite. Delicious breakfast each morning. The staff was friendly and accommodating. It truly is paradise. Thank you Noy and Tahiti Legends!

Huge rooms, massive bathrooms and showers, great facilities and access to beautiful beach. Restaurant is star of the hotel and is the focal point of the design. All traffic to beach and pool is via the Restaurant - so be ok with that. Order the 350cf Omelet, not on menu, but best value for the price. Walk down the beach...

Great cultural spot not to be missed. Loved Huahine and the local adventures. It was the last of 3 islands we stayed at and loved it. I do not give it 5 stars only because our accommodations looked great but there is a comfort level that left our backs in bad shape. Beds are lumpy and not firm enough and...

Huahine was the second stop on our honeymoon. We stayed at Lapita 3 nights in a lovely large bungalow. A lot of space, lovely new bathroom but inside we had the feeling of emptiness plus bed was not comfortable. The restaurant served basic breakfast but lunch and dinner a la carte was delicious. I really recommend a duck!!! On the...

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
