This hotel is the latest built of Pearl Beach Hotels, located on Motu Tautau in TAHAA.
It opened in July 2002. The site is gorgeous, white sand bank at loss of sight, a natural pass
('' Hoa Tahitian '') along the island.
The goal for this luxury hotel was to developpe with the existing vegetation. Thus, the main building is built around a protected tree in a central patio where a staircase ( in Aito) is built.
The set is located in the heart of vegetation as a stranded ship, and the access to the upper floor offers an exceptional view from the canopy to the lagoon. Some platforms in trees accentuate the feeling of floating above a vegetable sea.
The bungalows were worked in precious wood, 2 wood species have been associated, the clear floor and wall, the other one, darker, for all the furniture. The developed theme are the boat and the wave.
The structures are particularly worked, embellished with Polynesian links and details, including the structure of the reception that takes the form of old canoe warehouse.
