The island of Taha’a is located in the Society Islands and is directly across the isthmus from the island of Raiatea. Raiatea and has been one of the most important places in the Polynesian migrations throughout the Pacific. It still is an important historical and cultural center.
Taha’a is symbolically called the Vanilla Island, as on these fertile lands some of the best and most fragrant vanilla is grown and sought after by Chefs around the world. Tahitian pearls are also produced in Taha’a pearl farms that are located in the island’s turquoise waters. The island is blessed with lush mountains and valleys, quiet lagoons, virgin “motu” islets. The Vanilla Island has kept this Polynesian flair, and its inhabitants share a way of life that has remained truly authentic. Fishing, vanilla, pearl farms, agriculture and tourism are part of their daily lives.
Taha’a Island Resort & Spa is located on a “motu” islet, a 35-minute boat ride from the Raiatea Airport and a 5-minute boat ride from the village of Tapuamu (free transfers from the resort), on the main island of Taha’a.

You can easily enjoy the teeming sea life by experiencing drift snorkeling that will carry you along the small reef at the edge of the islet right to the heart of the coral garden. This is a divers delight.
