8/10 Very good

Verified Orbitz guest review

10/10 Exceptional

This is one of those places where I almost don't want to leave a review because it feels like such an amazing secret find. Yes, it is a bit of a haul to get there. Flight to Tahiti, then flight to Tikehau, then a 30 minute boat ride (be prepared to get wet and maybe consider taking Dramamine). But for those who are willing to go off the beaten path this is truly a remarkable place. I have traveled all over the world and have stayed in some pretty amazing and unique places, many of them off the beaten path. But this one is way up there as far as incredible. You are basically on your own little motu with only 4 bungalows, all not more than 3-4 meters from the crystal blue waters of the lagoon. There is coral and amazing fish and reef sharks EVERYWHERE. And almost no other people! There are kayaks free for your use. You can snorkel right outside your bungalow. The bungalows themselves were lovely and seemed quite new with very comfortable beds. And, one of the biggest surprises was the food. We have been to French Polynesia before and I understand that getting food to remote islands is difficult and expensive. So we weren't expecting much. WOW were we wrong. Rose and Kati (I hope I got her name right?!?) prepared these amazing huge three course meals every night. Fresh fish every night, amazing desserts. Incredible! I really don't know how they did it. Thank you Rose and Kati!!! It was a little bit of luxury in a paradise at the end of the world. We will definitely be back!

Wish I could give the lodge more than five stars. It is on a private island which is a half hour boat ride from the airport. The staff were more than gracious. The bungalows overlook the water and are very clean. Loved the dinners and breakfasts, very fresh fish and vegetables. They arranged for Manu to take us to the Bird Island which was amazing. We would stay here again if given the chance.

A special desert island!
Remote, beautiful setting with a small team of friendly people to look after you. The free kayaks are great for exploring and fun snorkelling in the channels (less clear and less interesting in the lagoon itself). Food was plentiful and delicious. meals are taken communally which can be a bit daunting unless your French is very good!

Hors du temps
Lieu incomparable ; endroit hors du temps ( on y arrive après 30 minutes de bateau), extraordinaire de beauté ; lagon de toute beauté, on peut aller de motus en motus … Chambre parfaite, très propre. Petit déjeuner copieux, dîners un peu trop chers…

L’endroit est absolument magnifique. Il y a une lumière et des couleurs exceptionnelles : les bleus et verts du lagon contrastent avec la teinte rosée du sable, les ciels éclatants, les couchers de soleil flamboyants et les nuages blancs ou sombres. L’eau est si pure qu’elle les réfléchit parfaitement. Ce descriptif ne vaut-il pas pour tous les motus de Tikehau? Vrai, mais les couleurs y semblent moins vives, les contrastes moins saisissants. La pension, très propre, est tenue par une femme aussi qu’intelligente : Rose. Elle cuisine merveilleusement bien et s’occupe d’absolument tout Hakamanu, ce qui demande de l’organisation. Avec elle, il n’y a jamais de problème, seulement des solutions. La pension respecte l’écologie des lieux : énergie solaire et eau de pluie traitée par osmose. D’ailleurs, Rose fait installer des panneaux supplémentaires afin de générer un surplus. Ayant beaucoup voyagé dans les îles, je recommande la beauté sauvage de Hakamanu et celle des bungalows donnant sur le lagon. Fenêtres ouvertes, il y fait délicieusement frais nuit et jour, entre l’air du lagon et le vent de l’océan. Il s’agit d’un séjour pour les contemplatifs. Loin des animations habituelles, vous nagerez tranquillement avec les raies manta et vous baignerez sur des plages désertes. Vous serez accueillis avec simplicité et gentillesse. Albert et Manu vous emmèneront en excursion. Rose s’occupera de tout.

Au top la disponibilité et gentillesse de Fau et surtout Manu. Il manque un "catalogue " des activités conseillées payantes ou non, a proximité ou par des prestataires, qui plus est expliquées par les propriétaires (trop en retrait)

Le cadre est tout simplement magique. Il est possible de se balader de motu en motu avec une grande facilité, à pied où en Kayak. Tout le personnel est au petit soin. Les repas sont copieux et délicieux.
