Another Island of the Marquesas, for another hotel project counting 20 bungalows, the Nuku Hiva Pearl Lodge, the hotel overlooks the bay and the village of Taihoae.
Here the common areas were built in the lower part of the field. Each lodge is perfectly hidden in the maximum preserved existing vegetation and is embellished with a private view of the bay.
Like the Pearl Lodge Hiva oa, the different volumes were covered with wooden shingles and all the works were made with proper materials from the Islands (wood, stone and river pebbles, woven bamboo), and local artisans also participated in the general embellishment, sculptures on bungalows' columns facade, various interior decorative panels, volcanic stone carving and construction of tapas (traditional drawings on beaten wood bark).
This hotel was built at the same time as that of Hiva oa over a period of 13 months.
