Whether learning about our fascinating past, admiring spectacular coral-laced lagoons, or simply relaxing on our white sand beach, we welcome you to experience the captivating spirit of Huahine.
Inspired by ancient Polynesian villages and “fare va’a” (ancient houses of Polynesian canoes), Maitai Lapita Village Huahine features 32 air-conditioned bungalows.
If you’re searching for an unforgettable vacation in a place both authentic and mystical, Maitai Lapita Village Huahine may be what you’ve been looking for. Be seduced by the richness of the island, its history and cultural heritage, stunning scenery, beaches and marine life.
The Omai restaurant offers delicious dishes for all tastes, using many local fruits and vegetables and—of course— fresh seafood. Or enjoy a drink between gardens and beach at Oaoa Bar, inspired by traditional Polynesian architecture.
Archaeological excavations on the hotel’s property have contributed greatly to our knowledge of the Lapita people. Many of the ancient artifacts recovered are on display in the hotel’s museum.
Huahine also offers a range of water sports. Explore the lagoon, discover the underwater fauna and flora, take a sunset cruise, go deep-sea fishing, or surf one of the best waves in French Polynesia.
The choice of materials at Maitai Lapita was guided by the desire to create a luxury hotel village combining local traditional materials with modern and recycled materials. The Maitai Lapita Village Huahine is the newest of the Maitai hotels and is EarthCheck Bronze certified. An array of solar panels provides over a third of the electricity needed to operate the facility.
