The Resort

The charming Maitai Lapita Village pays particular homage to the island’s ancestors. In fact, the Lapita name is representative of the people who originally discovered and settled western Polynesia and also laid the foundation for Polynesian culture.

Located on the western shore of Huahine, the resort has been built around a preserved archaeological site and many of the resort’s design elements play up the historical significance of the location.

Here, you are surrounded by beauty. There is a beautiful fresh water lake, vibrant with waterlilies and colorful fish, at the heart of the resort. Within the center of the resort, you’ll find a beautiful fresh water lake teeming with waterlilies and fish while the resort itself faces a crystal clear lagoon that’s perfect for snorkeling. Maitai Lapita Village has been perfectly laid out so that you can enjoy landscape views of the island, and beautiful silhouettes of Raiatea, Taha’a, and Bora Bora.

Why You’ll Love It
