Critical Review - Bear with Me
The TL;DR is that this is a nice resort on a crazy beautiful island. Go. You will enjoy it. However, my review is going to be more critical than that of your average traveler. I've been to 51 countries and stay in nothing but super fancy 5-star resorts all the time. So my expectations and what I'm used to vary greatly from the average traveler. (For instance, Sugar Beach resort in St Lucia and the Baose Luxury Resort in Curacao are both FAR nicer than this place) PROS: * Good customer service all around for the most part. The staff was all very nice and friendly. Quite accommodating * Rooms are well-appointed and clean, by no means are they breathtaking * Breakfast was actually pretty good * Location on the island is simply gorgeous * They offer day rooms free of charge so you have somewhere to hang out between check out and when your departing flight leaves. This is a huge plus. Huge. * Massages at the spa were great. As in, really really good massages. Got our first one in the spa and it was literally the best massage I've ever had in my life. So good that we ordered another massage to be done in our room on our last day. Also very good. * We got to know most of the other guests given how small the resort is, which made the days more fun and enjoyable. CONS: * The food is not good. Not at all. Slim selections and doesn't taste good. Several of the other guests we befriended were all complaining about their food as well. Breakfast is pretty good, but be prepared to be super disappointed in lunch and dinner. Room service or one of the restaurants... It's all pretty bad. * There are not very many different tours/excursions to do here due to the remoteness of the island. We did jetskiing one day and swimming with stingrays and sharks the next. Both of these were awesome and we'd recommend them. But that was about it, as far as activities go. * Drinks are not good either. Just don't taste all that great. You can get better at the local bar down from your house. For what they charge, they should be much better. * There is no real poolside service. If you like to lounge at the pool all day, this is a major disappointment. (Remember I said up above there isn't much else to do here, so this is a rather big deal) Many other guests who've been to other similar results were also complaining about how they would be at the pool for 2 and 3 hours before someone came over and asked if they would like to order anything. Normally, at a really good resort, the cabana boy/waiter person comes over checking on you so much that it's actually a little annoying. This is the complete opposite. Prepare to be hungry and thirsty while you are sitting out in the sun roasting, trying to relax. This may not sound like such a big deal, but again... If you are paying thousands of dollars to a resort, you shouldn't have to go stop relaxing to go hunt someone down when you are thirsty and hungry. * At the pool, they do not have actual cabanas, which is also a bummer. Cabanas are a standard staple at resorts. Especially so-called luxury ones. There are just lounge chairs for about 8 couples. Only about 5 had large umbrellas, leaving the other three with zero shade. It doesn't sound like a big deal. But when you are paying this kind of money, having to lay out and just roast to death under the burning island sun should be something you do because you WANT to, not because you are forced to because they don't provide cabanas. I felt bad for the couples who got stuck with the 3 spots out in the sun. They could never fully relax and enjoy themselves because they were always watching everyone else like a hawk, so they could pounce once of the good seats opened up with an umbrella. (We got up earlier than we would have liked to ensure we snagged one with an umbrella. Also super annoying we had to get up early instead of being able to sleep in on our vacation) I overheard one couple complain to a staff person that they wanted an umbrella too and he told them they didn't have anymore. The guest was quite unhappy. This may not sound like a big deal, but when you've paid thousands of dollars to a resort, every guest should be able to be comfortable by the pool. * They only offer a Polynesian dance show at night on Tuesdays. Just one day a week, folks. What the actual hell. We arrived on Tuesday, staying for 6 days. Didn't learn about the show until the morning of our 2nd day, so we never got to see this. In my opinion, it's absolutely nuts that a so-called luxury resort isn't offering this about 3 times a week. This is literally the main thing this culture is known for. I've stayed in other luxury resorts in Bora Bora, Samoa, etc and they had this type of show very frequently. No way a guest would leave without experiencing it. But again, this resort offers almost no entertainment. There are more cons I could list out, but I'm sleepy and tired, so I'll stop here. Again, bottom line is this is definitely a nice resort on a amazingly gorgeous island. If you don't have crazy high expectations like me, you will be impressed and happy you went. But if you are a very avid, well-traveled person, you may find yourself somewhat disappointed.
Honeymoon in Le Taha
Great 3 nights at Le Taha resort for our honeymoon! Positive: -the staff are very welcoming and provided both a warm welcome and goodbye (the manager coming to greet you and complimentary baseball cap were a nice touch, also received a voucher for a free pearl on check in) -private island with a long stretch of pristine beaches, rooms are spread out so feels intimate -Over water bungalows had excellent views on the ocean and a beautiful sunset that could be viewed through the panoramic windows in the villa -coral garden - coral garden easily accessible from the resort (5 mins walk) and plenty of opportunities to spot sting rays and many other fish -food variety and quality was high, two restaurants to choose for dinner -New Year show and celebrations were amazing - great display of local dances, music, fire show and fireworks! Many of the staff stayed up very late despite living on a different island Recommendations: -a lot of mosquitoes in the evenings in particular (have spray with you at all times) -need more signs / warnings about the current in the coral garden -rooms feel a bit tired -room service could be a bit more attentive
Something Special in Paradise
We stayed at Le Taha'a over New Year's 2019. We have been to many resorts and this one is special. First, it's not too big but big enough: the proportions are right. Second, the restaurant becomes a place where you recognize and meet other gusts because there is just one main restaurant - Chez Louise. We found the service to be very friendly - especially Sylvie who we saw almost every day. She was so gracious and helpful. The staff realized we were with 3 kids so they gave us extra doggie boxes so we could take as much from the breakfast buffet to carry us over lunch and into dinner. We were welcomed in style and immediately got into the spirit while singing along with the Ukulele. The grounds were just stunning and very navigable. We rented two rooms - one on land and one on water. Both were very well presented and maintained (considering this resort is locally owned for 18 years). Our ground cabina was larger and had its own pool and outdoor shower.- a great touch for the kids. Us big kids stayed in the water cabina and enjoyed the fish, stingrays and sharks every evening from the floor window inside our cabin. The waterfront is spectacular with about a kilometre of sand out before it gets to deeper waters. Also, the coral swim was better than most of our dive experiences since we received our PADI's. Lots of fish and beautiful coral. The only negative I might give is its status as a Relais Château - I think this is hurting them more than helping. I read a review that suggest their food is terrible. This is far from the truth. Food is amazing but it is shipped in and with that one can only expect so much. However, as a Relais Château resort, guests might be expecting the food to be similar to experiences back in France. I think those considering Le Taha'a should realize that the food is exceptional and uniquely presented for the region. We went on to other regions after our stay at Le Taha'a and upon reflection recognized that Le Taha'a was our highlight of the trip: is a very special place in paradise that hasn't been quite over developed as in some of the other islands.

Over the top wonderful!
Stayed 5 nights as a family of 6 with our teenagers. By far our favorite family vacation. The food is amazing. The location is remote with stunning views. The staff was attentive and friendly. We went diving on 2 days which the hotel arranged for us. Everything about this place is exceptional. We would love to go back!
A tranquil visit
It’s a very special place, beautiful -serene-tranquil. We had the sunset bungalow. It’s breathtaking The snorkeling around the island is amazing. We had dinner at the big Tahaa island called Chez Louise, it’s a must. The hotel service is top shelve, dependable, fantastic.
