Reopening of Le Taha'a Private Island & Spa
Ia Orana dear partners and friends,
It is with great pleasure that we announce the March 5th reopening of Le Taha?a Private Island & Spa (member of Relais et Ch?teaux) following a two-month period of renovation and construction. In a continued effort to cater to the resort?s elite clientele, the property has constructed several brand-new amenities, including:
- two new Royal Beach Villas welcoming up to 5 guests,
- a state-of-the-art fitness center,
- a specialty fare at the Manea Spa,
- an entertainment and relaxation room, and
- a new diving center.
A luxurious addition to the existing accommodations, the two new Royal Beach Villas will each encompass 270 square meters (approximately 2,906 square feet), including the bungalow terrace and private pool. The interior d?cor will echo the same materials and design as the current beach villas, including three 32-inch flat-screen televisions.
Special amenities will include:
- one complimentary bottle of French champagne and appetizers upon arrival,
- daily fresh flowers within the villa,
- one complimentary 30-minute spa treatment and
- a complimentary elegant gift upon departure.
To further cater to guest needs, a personal concierge will be dedicated to these two villas 24 hours a day, and for guests who stay eight nights, the resort will arrange a private Polynesian show. These villas will be available starting June 18.
At the resort?s signature Manea Spa, a new 40-square meter (approximately 430 square feet) Fare Taurumi bungalow will be constructed, including a terrace with two hydro-massage tubs and a treatment room with two massage tables. With spacious bathing wells and a multitude of jet placements, the hydro-massage tubs will introduce balneotherapy into the Manea Spa offerings. The tubs relieve tension by combining deep-tissue massage with the therapeutic power of water. The Fare Taurumi will be available at the end of March.
In addition to the spa renovations, Le Taha?a will open a fully-equipped, air-conditioned fitness room which will echo the d?cor and design of the center at Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort & Spa. Featuring authentic Polynesian materials such as pandanus leaves and rock from Taha?a, the center will measure 75 square meters (approximately 807 square feet) and feature state-of-the-art exercise equipment and weights amidst stunning views of the lush surroundings. This new fitness room will be available at the end of March.
Also available at the end of March, the new resort lounge, measuring 56 square meters (approximately 603 square feet), will include a billiards room, two computers with Internet access, an extensive library and a 46-inch flat-screen television. Finally, the resort will unveil the new scuba diving center, offering an improved facility for diving enthusiasts to explore the underwater paradise surrounding this private island.
Look forward to welcoming you soon in Taha'a's Hidden Paradise
