There are 118 islands in French Polynesia, but only one is equal parts bustling hub and laid-back beach town (the others are just the second one, and there’s nothing wrong with that!). Check out hotels in Papeete, on the island of Tahiti, and dive in to all this capital city has to offer.
The Robert Wan Pearl Museum is a real “pearl”. In fact, it’s the world's only museum dedicated to pearls—and we bet you didn’t know how interesting they are! In Asia, pearls symbolise fertility and in Chinese myth, they’re associated with dragons. Tahitian black pearls are the name of the game; make sure you buy some on the way out.
For even more Tahitian souvenirs, visit Papeete Market. Pick up some monoi (gardenias soaked in coconut oil) for Mum and colorful pareos for your special someone. Or just keep it all for yourself! You’ll be especially snazzy for an evening promenading along the waterfront at Vai'ete Square. Take in the sights of Nanuu Bay and order up from the food trucks, then fall into a food coma back at your Papeete accommodation.
Faa'a International Airport is uber convenient to Papeete hotels, just 10 km from downtown. You could hop in a taxi, but there’s so much to see on Tahiti, you should probably book one of Wotif’s unbelievably cheap car hire options. Want to do a little island hopping? How does “Honeymoon Island” sound? Great, obviously. Book Cook Islands accommodation and hop west across the South Pacific to get in a little more beach time.
Get your fill of island cooking, hip-shaking Polynesian dances and one-of-a-kind souvenirs with Wotif’s deals on Papeete hotels. Need even more? Book Cook Islands packages, too, and you’ll be on your way to total South Pacific relaxation.
Hotels in Papeete start at AU$104 per night. Prices and availability subject to change. Additional terms may apply.
