Tikehau, Tuamotu Archipelago
At least once in your life , you have to experience the exclusive use of a tropical Dream Island in one of the nicest atoll of the legendary Tuamotu Archipelago, at 50 minutes by plane from Tahiti.

in the middle of South Pacific, along with Tahiti and Bora Bora, the Tuamotu Archipelago is composed of a myriad of 'atolls': rings of coral reef dotted with green islets, called “motu”, enclosing gorgeous inviting blue lagoons; a swimmer’s paradise with a treasure trove of sealife to explore.
The infinite palette of blues of the lagoon, the peace of the lagoon, the white beaches bathed in sunlight and shaded by coconut palms: a postcard paradise appears before your eyes.

Fafarua Lodge is a private “motu” : when you rent it, it is reserved exclusively for you.
It is an isolated place where you can enjoy unspoilt natural beauty in...

We joined Eva and Patrick for a week of complete relaxation. Having stayed on a remote" motu before, we had an idea of how relaxing and tranquil it would be. And it was! But what was quite unexpected was the quality of food. Outstanding! It was quite an experience for both our families (kids 5, 10, and 10 and four...

We had searched and researched to find the perfect spot to celebrate for seven days, our honeymoon (belated 6 yrs) and anniversary. Through Denis Laxenaire (Tahiti.villas) who booked our stay in Moorea, we discovered Fafarua Lodge. We were enticed by the notion of complete seclusion for a whole week, away from civilization and our busy lifestyle. Who doesn't relate with...

I was absolutely blown away when we arrived to Fafarua Lodge. Truly amazing place with so much positive energy! Pictures can't emphasise how beautiful this place is. Patrick and Eva were the best host we had so far. We were cruising among Tuamotu islands every day, went snorkelling, diving, kayaking, paddling, ... Eva prepared amazing breakfast, launch and dinner everyday....

Beneath the surface of the lagoon, a colourful underwater world, where bright fish swim amongst 350 species of vivid coral, is there to explore. The people in...
