Le Meridien Tahiti is a modern and luxurious resort offering you the opportunity to awaken each of your senses. The resort offers an unique experience at the edge of a lagoon on one of the island's most beautiful white sandy beaches.

See thumbnails of all photos for this point of interest.


Located along a lagoon on the most beautiful and unique white sandy beach of Tahiti, this authentic resort has been entirely redesigned in 2010.

Perfectly integrated into the luxuriant vegetation of the island, Le Meridien Tahiti reveals its large contemporary rooms, inviting open air lobby and refined restaurants and bars in a stylish relaxed atmosphere.

The resort features colorful standard rooms overlooking lush gardens, contemporary yet chic guest rooms with endless views on the crystal clear lagoon, spacious junior and senior suites with large open terraces, and exclusive Polynesian-style overwater bungalows – all with full facilities, ie: 'le Meridien Beds', flat screen TV, wifi, minibar.

Review:   Recommended for: Couples, families

Pros: Dramatic entrance architecture. Wonderful sunsets. Impressive Polynesian live shows.

Cons: If you're just staying 1 night, before heading to the outer islands (as many people do), it's a fair drive from the core of Papeete.

Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   While it's not as polished as some of the other Le Meridiens we've been to, this resort offers a relaxing and calm atmosphere with a laid back friendly service from staff. Sometimes a little too laid back but they are so friendly! Room is clean, bathroom and shower is very big and the towels are soft. Comfy beds offer a good nights sleep for sure.

Review:   They claim to be a 5 star resort. More loke a 3.5. The bathrooms are very outdated with mold and really old tile. The shower heads are so cheap with barely any water coming out of them. The food at the restaurants is a 5 out of 10 rating. The front desk staff look very overworked and underpaid. They are not very helpful or friendly. The grounds and landscape are beautiful. The pool area is very beautiful too. The convention room or wedding reception room had really old stained carpet that smells terrible. A huge stain the about 3' long in diameter right by the doorway. I would be very upset if I planned my wedding reception there. They need to invest a little money into re doing the bathrooms.

Review:   A wonderful and expansive resort with great service and fantastic accomodations! Do not miss the traditional shows on Friday. Snorkelling from the beach was an unexpected pleasure!

Review:   Very nice set up. The amenities are great and beautiful, but our room stunk very bad. It smelled like some type of sewer or pipe issue. Aside from that, the staff was very nice and accommodating and I enjoyed my stay.
