My wife and I just returned after a week at Fare Pea Iti. It was one of the best travel experiences we've had. This is one of the best places on Tahaa. Brigitte makes you feel welcome and is there for anything you need. It’s her special place and you can feel the personal care and attention she’s put into every detail of this resort. Get away from those 300 room hotels with the pool aerobics classes and daily activities list. (But if you ARE looking for that type of a location, this would not be the place for you.)
3 very nice beach bungalows 25 feet from the water. Very well appointed with authentic island touches, but with all the conveniences. Each has its own section of beach with lots of palm trees and flowers. Looks out over the Tahaa lagoon at the barrier motus, and a great view of Bora Bora. Very roomy with a romantic bedroom that opens onto a large covered veranda that is perfect for taking a break from the sun, or watching the squalls pass by in cozy comfort. The veranda is also where those most excellent breakfast trays that Alphonse makes and brings out each morning are served. In the evening, a nice place to end the day with an after dinner drink and conversation with your special person before bedtime.
The main house has a small library with an Internet station. Dinners are served each evening here in a group setting. Alphone and Brigitte prepare delicious local dishes each night- we looked forward to our dinners each day. We don’t speak any other language beside English, but we met some very nice people from France and Belgium (everyone speaks English it seems) and enjoyed getting to know them and sharing dinner conversation with them. Brigitte speaks English very well and took great care of us and made us feel very welcome always.
Brigitte knows the island and will find the right local people to help you do whatever type of exploring you want to do on the island. Brigitte and Teva took us out to the coral gardens themselves where we snorkeled in the best waters we’ve every snorkeled in. Be sure to ask them to arrange this for you - it’s a very nice event.
My wife and I enjoyed our week’s stay thoroughly. We enjoyed meeting Brigitte, Alphonse, and Teva and will remember them and their kindness and hospitality for a long time. We wish we could have stayed there longer.
Please contact me if I can answer any questions or provide more details about our stay.
