Good value, beautiful location. Not much to do hear but swim but they do have kayaks for you. It was low season when we were there so not sure if the two kayaks they had would be enough if the resort was crowded. Food was good and reasonably priced considering the location. I forgot my jewelry bag in the suite on departure. When I emailed the hotel, the had actually found it. Such honesty speaks highly of the people that work for the Royal Huahine. Resa from the office saw to it that my case was shipped to my hotel. Very impressive in todays world. Thank you Resa. The over water bungalow that we had was large with a fridge. And mini kitchen. Not new by any stretch but location was luxurious. Lovely beach and lots of beach chairs. Went to town only once. Not much there. Well worth the trip. Thanks again Resa.
Wonderful room, great view. Pool furniture needs to be refreshed, and prices in the restaurant are the typical Tahiti high rate. Long boat trip from town got to be tiresome if one wanted to visit town often. Great swimming, and super beach. If you want a bungalow over the water, the rates are lower than many others.
Stayed in an over water bungalow on the outer edge. Crystal clear water. Not a new hotel by any means but rooms were spotlessly clean and the housekeeping ladies were efficient and friendly. The transfers were handled efficiently and there are timetabled trips into Fare each day so you can visit town and further afield. Food at the restaurant was good, not OTT with prices. One of our party went fishing and the restaurant prepared the catch beautifully for us to enjoy one night. Watching the sunset over Raiatea and the other islands to the west with a drink on the balcony was fab. Shop for some snacks and refreshments in town when you arrive and you can enjoy a serene time before making the stroll to dinner. The gardens are beautifully kept and the legendary Tiare flower blooms prolifically among the hibiscus and other beautiful tropical blooms,
We just returned from a trip to Tahiti and her islands. After visiting Bora Bora, we headed to Huahine and stayed at the Royal Huahine. Initially, I thought to myself, how could anything beat Bora Bora? We were unsure what to expect but immediately upon our arrival at the resort, we recognized its immediate beauty. The Staff at the Royal Huahine were superb and greeted us with a warm welcome and treated us like family during our entire stay. We stayed in an over-water bungalow and it did not disappoint. The rooms were spacious and clean and the deep water bungalows allowed us to dive in and enjoy all that the underwater world has to offer. The view was absolutely incredible and the beauty of the island took my breath away. It truly was paradise, with lush green mountains, beautiful flora everywhere and the sunsets are out of this world. We enjoyed everything we ordered from the restaurant. The food was great and was reasonable (compared to Tahiti prices). The hotel operates like a small family run shop and is only accessible by boat from the Fare. Uncle Joe will take you to and from town 3 times a day (15 min boat ride). Huahine and our stay at the Royal Huahine far exceeded our expectations. The grounds and bungalows were beautiful and the island itself was truly magical and made us feel like we were in paradise. As far as activities, snorkeling was great off of our bungalow, there were plenty of colorful fish to see and you could explore the underwater world. The offer kayaks and canoes for your use and the beach is also quite amazing. If you're looking for a party atmosphere, you won't find it here. We so enjoyed the peace and quiet of the resort and would have liked to stay longer than the 3 days we were there. The only thing that would have made our stay better was an included breakfast. Breakfast was pricey compared to dinner and lunch and the selection was limited. Thank you to Uncle Joe and Felicity for making our stay so memorable. We look forward to our return stay at your resort.
amazing place, super remote and ultra clear blue water is just beneath you or you kayak 20 mins to get the best water :) we had a huge OWB and staff were really helpful. We loved our time here although night-fishermen made us feel uncomfortable one night.
We loved Huahine and Royal Huahine was the icing on the cake. We stayed in the overwater bungalows and yes they could do with some TLC but nothing that would take away from the experience. The stay were superb the restaurant was nice and reasonably priced. The only thing that we could have asked for was a longer stay! Next time we will definitely make more time in Huahine. Check out the photos - they say it all!
The hotel arranged a seamless transfer by taxi then boat. Arriving by boat made it more romantic as my wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary. At check in we received our room keys from very friendly staff who informed us of the hotel routine. We arrived at our room which was an over water bungalow! we had been upgraded from the garden bungalow we booked. Amazing spacious room with whirlpool bath and deck overlooking the beautiful lagoon, bungalow 27. However, there was a fault in the room so we were upgraded again! This time to room 38, a deep water bungalow. The customer service in this resort is second to none, so attentive and friendly. I swam in the crystal clear water and was surrounded by a myriad of species of fish - stunning. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner - we only had dinner each night. The food was ok and everything came with green beans, we laughed at this each night. Prices in Huahine are expensive like the other local islands with a small 33cl beer costing roughly £5. There is a free boat to the town of Fare 3 times a day. Here you can use the supermarket to stock up. My wife had an issue with her knee but the staff quickly fetched a wheelchair, as I said earlier - nothing was a problem. I would like to thank Royal Huahine for making our trip a fantastic experience, I would highly recommend this resort!
Very nice and helpful staff. Genuinely friendly. One of the fellas working there (Ra'i) made me a bamboo pole for fishing and would bring me bait. He took me spear fishing with his personal gear when i asked. Refused a tip. Everyone there is all smiles. Only way in and out of the resort is by boat three times daily. Resort is quiet and the most relaxing place i have ever been. The over the water bungalows are spacious with good A/C and a large deck. Fresh water shower on the dive deck. This place was simply fantastic. prices for food were considerably less than the Intercontinental on Moorea. If you are looking for a rowdy beach bar seen, then this place is not right. when we were there, it was best to buy drinks in town and put them in your fridge for your own deck.
Royal Huahine is a wonderful and very secluded resort on the beautiful island of Huahine. The friendly local staff are very relaxed and helpful. We had the overwater bungalow and found it very spacious and private. Jumping off your own platoon and immediately start snorkeling is a great experience! Don't expect a very luxurious and all-included resort. The key aspects here are space, secluded location and the friendly staff. There is a 3-daily free navette to the main village (Fare) where there is a big supermarket.
We thought the property was fine for the price we paid, except that one night we were there had no water (was told that it was the whole island). Nice large room, with stairs to the water, so I snorkeled at sunrise (not much fish though). There is some coral off the beach that one can swim and snorkel there. Have beach volleyball net and kayaks to use. One other item to mention is that there was lack of sufficient staff to handle all the guests arrivals and queries throughout stay. Only 1 staff was there to handle all queries, including handing out the snorkel gear and life jacket.
