This 5-star Relais & Chateaux property delicately set on a coral islet is surrounded by the crystalline waters of one of Polynesia’s most beautiful lagoons, opposite the iconic Mount Otemanu. Not a neighbor in sight, the horizon boasts only lush nature and the immense, soothing expanse of the deep blue ocean. Here, three types of fare (traditional houses) covered with plaited pandan leave welcome guests: villas nestled in the coconut grove, suites opening onto the beach, or bungalows mounted on stilts in the lagoon. Creating an archipelago of tranquillity, their elegance is matched only by their comfort: you need simply venture out onto the terraces or to the private swimming pools to discover the Tāvai Spa’s magical treatments, explore coral gardens with a mask and snorkel, or take a trip aboard the Okeanos Pearl, the property’s solar-powered catamaran. At this extraordinary site, every detail has been designed to satisfy the senses.
