Of all types and price ranges, hotels in Tahiti are generally of good quality. Depending on the length of your stay on the island, you will choose accommodation close to the airport and Papeete. What are the best hotels in Tahiti? Let’s take a look at our selection!
Hotels in Tahiti Near the International Airport
Ease & Comfort Upon Arrival or Before Your Return
Flights to Tahiti arrive at destination either early in the morning or late in the afternoon. In either case, you’ll enjoy dropping off your bags or going straight to your hotel to rest from the trip. If you are planning a short stopover in Tahiti before leaving for Bora Bora, Moorea or the islands of the Tuamotu archipelago, we recommend that you stay close to the airport. This will allow you to arrive in time for boarding.
This recommendation is also valid for the return flight, especially if it takes place very early in the morning. Due to the numerous traffic jams around the city of Faa’a where the airport is located, it is preferable to spend the night before boarding in an accommodation located just a few minutes from the terminal.
This practical solution avoids stressful situations and also allows for a good night’s sleep. However, it is still possible to combine business with pleasure, as some of the best accommodations near the airport are among the best hotels in Tahiti.
Best Luxury Hotels in Tahiti: Intercontinental Resort Tahiti
The Intercontinental Resort Tahiti is the perfect place to stay before heading off to other climes.

Here you will have your first postcard effect and your first swim: you are in the land of dreams and enchanting landscapes!
Several categories of accommodation are available. Travelers in transit will enjoy the standard and superior rooms, which are both spacious and modern. Others will choose the beautiful overwater bungalows and villas to admire the sunset on the neighboring island of Moorea in complete privacy.
It is possible to eat on site, but you can also spend the evening in Papeete which is only 10 minutes away by car. The Intercontinental Resort Tahiti is definitely more than a transit hotel: it is practical and pleasant. Count on a budget per night and for two people from $340 to $1,140 depending on the tourist season and the type of accommodation chosen.

Hotels in Tahiti Iti
When you leave Tahiti Nui for the peninsula, you enter a wilder, more authentic environment and of course, farther away from everything. It is therefore necessary to have enough time and often a means of locomotion.
Omati Lodge: Intimacy & Immersion
On the east coast of Tahiti Iti, the Omati Lodge offers several high quality villas, two of which have a private pool. In the heart of a splendid landscaped garden, you will appreciate the calmness and the magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean.

Best of Hotels in Tahiti Iti: Pension Reva Teahupoo
At the end of the west coast, there is a nice guesthouse, accessible only by boat. The boat ride takes 15 minutes before arriving at the Pension Reva Teahupoo. In the middle of a wild landscape, the experience becomes almost initiatory.
The accommodation is in bungalows with a capacity of 2 to 4 persons. All are well equipped for sleeping and have a private bathroom. Larger families will have a more spacious bungalow at their disposal. Because of the total isolation, it is strongly recommended to choose a half board or even full board formula.
