Our Resort Report

Our Thoughts on Hotel Le Mahana Huahine, Baie d'Avea - Parea - Huahine Iti, French Polynesia
Previously known as "Hotel Relais Mahana", this great little resort was extensively refurbished in early 2015 and again in 2016/17.  The refurbishment involved almost every aspect of the property from rooms to restaurant and now it’s looking great. Located on the south-west Coast of Huahine-Iti Island on a big, curving bay it faces west enjoying superb sunsets.  The resort fronts a perfect beach with tropical lawns and gardens in profusion. Apart from the authentic-style South-Seas Bungalows, the piece de resistance of the whole place is the waterfront restaurant and bar which has an open, covered sandy area out front facing the pier which is a perfect location for long, lingering lunches and evening sunset cocktails as the visiting yachts ride quietly at anchor out in the lagoon. 

The coral garden in the lagoon just off the end of the resort’s pontoon jetty, ensures that snorkelling is a major attraction for guests at Hotel Le Mahana Huahine and snorkel gear with fins is available for complimentary use by guests as are kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, beach towels and beach chairs.  Free Wifi is available in the lobby.  Wifi may also be accessed from the bungalows at a charge.   

Huahine is a super laid-back sort of a place, so there are plenty of relaxing activities available here.  Hotel Le Mahana Huahine has a rental vehicle desk in the foyer lounge where it is easy to hire cars, bicycles and scooters.  For those staying more than a day or two, a scooter is a great way to get around and mingle with the local scooter riders.  A bicycle is a good way to reach the local village which is located just around the headland from the resort and if you want to experience something really special, consider a horse ride on the beach or a lagoon cruise which includes lunch at tables under umbrellas set up in the waters of the lagoon.

There are plenty of more active pursuits too - such as hiking, 4WD Tours, Scuba Diving, Kite Surfing, Jet-Ski riding and Fishing.

Hotel Le Mahana Huahine rates 3 Star, but since its refurbishment, it certainly feels like a higher rating property. The restaurant is well known for its food quality and the location is tops. 

What Hotel Le Mahana, Huahine Say About Themselves:
In a Polynesian style, our bungalows offer comfort and proximity to the beach and the lagoon.
“Ia Orana e Maeva at Le Mahana.

Located in south-west of the small island of Huahine, between Tahiti and Bora-Bora, in the heart of Avea bay, lies the Hotel Le Mahana, on a beautiful white sand beach and a great coral garden in a lagoon with pristine and turquoise waters. Allow yourself to escape... 

The bar and the restaurant titillate your taste buds with the Polynesian specialties or a more traditional cuisine.

Many land and water activities are available to spice up your stay and optimize the discovery of the island.

The Hotel Le Mahana in Huahine, an unforgettable, off the beaten track stay on a secluded island between Tahiti and Bora-Bora. Authentic, wild and secret, the island of Huahine is recognized as the “Garden of Eden” of Tahiti and its islands…

Getting to and from Hotel Le Mahana Huahine
Huahine Island is very centrally located to Tahiti, Moorea and Bora Bora and is reached by a 35 to 40 minutes direct flight from all three of its neighbouring islands. Huahine is actually 2 islands - Huahine Nui, (the larger of the two) and Huahine Iti. The two islands are joined by a bridge.  The airport is located on the northern coast of Huahine Nui and it is around about a 20-minute scenic drive from the airport to Hotel Le Mahana which is located on the south-west coast of Huahine Iti. 

Transfers between the airport and Hotel Le Mahana Huahine are normally on a seat-in-vehicle basis.  Private Car transfers are also available (at additional cost).

Le Mahana is a short drive around the coast from Parea Village, a walkable distance for a reasonably fit person.  Europcar have a desk at the hotel so rental cars are easily organised if you decide to do a “self-tour” of Huahine, which is an excellent way to enjoy the Huahine Islands if you are staying a few days.
