THE 200-ROOM Hilton Hotel Tahiti just opened to guests, offering a reimagined stay with new interiors and services inspired by Tahitian elegance. The site was formerly the Hotel Tahiti, the first hotel in the country to attract international attention to the destination in 1960.
Built on land that formed part of the Tahitian royal family estate, the hotel became a hub of Tahitian social life and welcomed personalities—including movie stars, politicians, and royal families—from all over the world. Hilton’s third property in French Polynesia, the space has been reinvented with extensive renovations to introduce more natural light and expand views bringing the natural beauty of Moorea Island and the Pacific Ocean to every corner. The pool, the largest in Tahiti, overlooks Moorea Island and has six private cabanas as well as a poolside restaurant.
“With nearly 20 per cent of Hilton Hotels & Resorts’ pipeline dedicated to growing our resort portfolio, Hilton Hotel Tahiti is an exciting addition to our flagship brand,” said Gary Steffen, global brand head, Hilton Hotels & Resorts. “As we anticipate more guests wanting to book travel to dream destinations like Tahiti, this beautiful new resort is a prime example of the premium amenities, exceptional service and exotic locale that our brand is known for throughout the world.”
Signature Hilton hospitality paired with an array of on-site amenities create an environment that speaks to chic and refined travel. The three onsite restaurants provide elevated fine dining experiences with thoughtfully curated menus that focus on sustainably sourced, fresh ingredients and reflect island culture and culinary influences. Guests can enjoy traditional Tahitian fare at Moevai; fish and steak with a French bent at Taitea Brasserie; and Southeast Asian cuisine at The Asian. These offerings are rounded out by the hotel’s two bars: the Heiva Lounge in the open-air lobby, offering spectacular ocean views and a bespoke collection of wine; and the Vaipuna poolside bar that offers unique, tropical libations as well as traditional cocktails.
The resort’s grounds are equally distinct and have been designed to bring the beauty of nature in, while also providing spaces that are accessible, yet elegant. A boutique-style spa is available for those looking to be pampered and guests looking to keep up their workout routine while in paradise can visit the fitness centre. hilton.com
