Tikehau Fafarua Lodge
French Polynesia, Australia/Pacific
Whole Island: 979 €+ per night for 2 People

Fafarua means Manta Ray in the Tuamotu islands language, and it is the name the atoll elders gave to the land of our private island.

Tikehau Fafarua Lodge is a private island that you can rent exclusively for yourself. It is also a very remote place where you can enjoy a natural untouched setting in little privacy.

The “motu” is accessible only by boat; a 30 minute ride from the village. It is an over 6 hectare area (14 acres), planted with a vast coconut grove with places of untouched native vegetation. It is bounded by the sea on all four sides, with sandy beaches on the lagoon side and a large wild reef on the outer side.

Although far from any civilization, the house will offer you the comfort of a villa: nice furniture, comfortable bedding, fully equipped kitchen, electricity and running water (hot and cold), fans, mobile telephone network and the internet on topical speed.

The island will host two to eight people, but only one couple or one group at a time
The meals , catering and housekeeping will be provided by the staff staying on the island, who will try their best to meet your desires for the schedules as well as the menus.
Kayaks, stand up paddle boards as well as masks and palms are on disposal to help you explore the beaches and the surroundings.

Our rates include all these services and accommodations and the staff will do their best to make your stay as quite as unforgettable, in one of these special places of the world where the word “stress” doesn’t exist.

The minimum stay is 3 nights, but we recommend to stay at least one week, (due to the long way to reach our place).


The accommodation is comfortable and built in the typical style of the Tuamotu. There are three single bedrooms. One is elevated and has a large bed. The two other bedrooms both have a large bed and a single bed. The large living room can possibly provide additional space to sleep. Housekeeping is included as well.


Inside dining room and lounge you will find an external lounge covered with coconut palms called “fare potee” and an outside table, protected under the shadow of a tree for lunch or candlelight dinner.

Alcohols and sodas are on additional cost. Our cave is fully provided with different wines, beers and different alcohols, but if the guests have special wishes we can try and provide what they need , if they order it long enough to get it on the island.
