About Royal Tahitien Hotel

Located in a private garden by the beach in the outskirts of Papeete, the Royal Tahitien is only a short drive from the city centre and offers a unique panoramic view of Lafayette Beach, a volcanic black sand beach. From August to October, if you are lucky, you can watch whales swimming along the reef. The restaurant enjoys a prime location overlooking the ocean and has a typical Polynesian decor with a traditional Tahitian ceiling. The chef specializes in local and international cuisine and is well known for the tropical decoration of the plates. Every Friday and Saturday evening, the bar and restaurant welcome local bands for performances that are popular with locals and guests. Be ready to experience the Tahitian way of entertaining. There is a swimming pool onsite, and the staff at reception can help with booking activities and car rentals. The Royal Tahitien offers a choice of Standard rooms or Studios (some with a kitchenette) all decorated in traditional Polynesian style.

Why we recommend it: Polynesian ambiance of the sixties; Nestled between tropical garden and the lagoon facing Moorea.
