One of the Pacific’s best-kept secrets, an atoll dear to the heart of Polynesians for its preserved beauty : suspended between sky and waves, Tikehau is a crown of coral islets that form an exceptional, 26-km long lagoon. In the language of the Tuamotu, Tikehau means “peaceful landing,” and it’s easy to understand the origins of its name. There, nestled in a wild coconut grove, on a pink sand beach, the Tikehau Pearl Beach Resort awaits you for a stay in paradise.
The hotel offers 24 suites and overwater bungalows, and 13 beach bungalows on a carefully kept 10-acre property. The bar and restaurant, housed in the impressive fare potee (communal house), welcome you by the edge of the infinity pool. Many excursions and activities are available: snorkeling, canoeing, sunset cruise, picnic, bicycle tour of the village, and scuba diving and massage at the fare Manea Spa.

In Polynesian culture, massage (called Taurumi in Tahitian) is a philosophy of life and part of traditional medicine and ancestral practices and customs.
Manea Spa, the signature spa brand of Polynesia, was created and developed based on the ideology of this hundreds of years old tradition. The spa strives to offer the best overall well-being and relaxation, and is unique to Tahiti because it takes advantage of the natural environment of the island while still embracing the Tahitian holistic care philosophy.
Situated within a luxurious beach bungalow, Manea Spa Fare invites you to experience ‘Taurumi’ at Tikehau Pearl Beach Resort. The spa is equipped with two massage tables facing the beach and the neighboring islet and includes a beautifully lush private garden, surrounded by coconut trees, providing the perfect spot for serene relaxation and meditation in-between pampering treatments.
Natural products and oils are used in all treatments and sourced from islands throughout Polynesia – pineapple from Moorea, Tiare from Tahiti, pure white sand from Bora Bora, vanilla from Taha’a and monoi and flower essences from the Marquesas.
Manea Spa Fare at Tikehau Pearl Beach Resort Features:
- 2 massage tables
- Private garden
- In-suite treatments can be arranged upon request.
The Tikehau Pearl Beach Resort is set on Motu Tiano, an islet just 15 minutes away from the village. In the steady breeze of the Trade Winds, 10 acres between ocean and lagoon, a wild coconut grove fringed by desert, pink sand beaches, unlike any other in French Polynesia: there really is nothing that compares to a Tikehau vacation.
The two neighboring motu, which the Tikehau Pearl Beach Resort intentionally leaves in their natural state, offer our guest the guarantee of a preserved, serene environment that they can easily explore as they are accessible after only a short walk in the shallow, turquoise waters of the lagoon.
Less than two hours away from Papeete, the Tikehau Pearl Beach Resort is a unique and privileged universe in more ways than one. Tikehau enjoys a median temperature of 26°C (79°F) all year round, and does not really have a rainy season. The only resort in its category in the Tuamotu, the greatest chain of coral atolls in the world, the Tikehau Pearl Beach Resort opens the doors, in a low-key refinement inspired by surrounding nature, a paradise long reserved to the most intrepid navigators.
