Extension of the Manava Suite Resort Tahiti renovation works

PAPEETE February, 2nd, 2018

The work on the Manava Suite Resort Tahiti waterfront, which started on August 21st, is still progressing as planned.

However, to better accommodate our guests, we have decided to include some additional services. As a result, the final delivery of the project is now scheduled for July 4, 2018 (instead of May 18).

The motus, the large deck of the restaurant / bar, the walkway and the wharf allowing access to the motus will be completed by May 18th but these areas will not be accessible. The kitchen, the restaurant, the pool bar, and the exterior restrooms will now be released in early July. 

Throughout this period, the swimming pool will continue to operate normally and all guests will be able to order their drinks.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused during the stay of your customers. Our entire team is at your disposal to answer your questions. We thank you for your understanding and support.

Haumana yatch cruises: Bora Bora -Taha’a -Raiatea

Is staying in an overwater bungalow in Tahiti on your bucket list?  Make the trip truly authentic by including a three-day yacht cruise in this nation of islands to your resort stay.  Follow the routes of the ancient Polynesians who rode the surf with ease on the 12-cabin yacht, the Haumana.  It’s the antidote to winter blues and to the idea of a large ship with a foreign crew pulling up to different ports of call.  The Tahitian crew will share with you their love of their islands — as well as its music and crafts — while the chef and his culinary team prepare sophisticated cuisine to complete this feast for the senses.

While on this comfortable, barefoot style cruise, explore Taha’a and Raiatea, with its velvet green hills and a cloud-capped peak, and learn why it is the most sacred island in the archipelago; the homeland of ancient Polynesians and set sail as they did to explore the South Seas. See first-hand why author James Michener called Bora Bora’s “the most beautiful lagoon in the world” and why this coral reef fringed set of islets is a bucket list luxury destination for travelers the world over.

With rates starting at Euros 1,500 per person, the trip includes: three nights; all meals and a selection of complementary wines; a half-day excursion to Taha’a, the Vanilla Island; and activities like kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling, a barbeque on a motu and other aquatic & cultural experiences.

“Bookend” your cruise with stays at the Manava Suite Resort Tahiti – with domestic flights available from Tahiti Faaa Airport to Raiatea or Bora Bora to meet the yacht for embarkment – and then unwind after the cruise at SPM’s lovely Manava Beach Resort & Spa on Moorea.

There is simply no better way to get to know Tahitian island life than by truly “over” water!

This festive season experience the three-day luxury yacht cruise between Raiatea, Taha’a & Bora Bora

Long before Europeans ever set eyes on Polynesia, tattooed Maohi warriors raced canoes and rode the rolling surf, while villagers celebrated their arrival with native dance and music. Now you can follow the routes of the ancient islanders on small luxury yacht cruises over the holidays and make this Yuletide season one you will never forget.

Embark on the Haumana – a 12-cabin luxury yacht – for an intimate cruise to enhance your Polynesian holiday with a three-day, island-to-island sailing adventure.

Choose from a Christmas Cruise – between Raiatea and Bora Bora from December 23 to December 26 – or a special New Year’s Cruise – from Bora Bora to Raiatea from December 30 to January 2 and swap freezing snow, evergreen trees and mittens

for sunshine, swaying palms and a parfait of blue striped lagoons. The friendly crew members will share with you their love of their islands while the chef and his culinary team prepare sophisticated cuisine to complete this feast for the senses.

Explore Taha’a, a flower shaped, sister island to Raiatea, lined with soft mountains and white sand beaches with the magical scent of vanilla wafting through the air. Visit a working orchid farm to see why it’s known as the “Vanilla Island” and bring home some of this exotic crop, considered to be among the world’s finest. Next, sail to Bora Bora—a coral reef fringed set of islets that author James Michener said was home to “the most beautiful lagoon in the world.” You’ll soon see why this special place is a bucket list luxury destination for travelers the world over.

The Haumana luxury yacht includes: three nights; all meals and a selection of complementary wines; a half-day excursion to Taha’a, the Vanilla Island; and activities like kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling, a barbeque on a motu and other aquatic & cultural experiences.

“Bookend” your cruise with stays at the Manava Resort Tahiti – with convenient flights available from FAA International Airport to Raiatea or Bora Bora to meet the yacht for embarkment – and then unwind after the cruise at SPM’s lovely Manava Beach Resort on Moorea.

There is simply no better way to celebrate the season, island style!
