Welcome to Raiatea Lodge Hotel !
Completely renovated in 2020, the Raiatea Lodge Hotel is a small charming 3-star hotel, located on the west coast of the sacred island.
The hotel stands out by its colonial style and its vast tropical park of more than one hectare in which are nestled our seven bungalows just waiting to be uncovered. After passing through the coconut grove, you will arrive at the spacious mansion which houses the rooms upstairs; the suite, the bar and the restaurant on the ground floor. These different facilities offer a breathtaking view of the lodge’s swimming pool and the surrounding tropical garden.
Only 5 minutes away from the airport and 10 minutes from downtown Uturoa and its famous covered market, the lodge boasts an ideal location. Situated not far from the Tapioi and Temehani mountains, it will appeal to hiking and botanical enthusiasts. Moreover, its privileged location gives it a special charm and protects it from the prevailing winds, which are particularly felt from June to October.
Finally, the sumptuous setting and the panoramic view of the Pearl of the Pacific and its setting sun are ideal for romantic getaways…
Raiatea is located in the Leeward Islands archipelago, only 210 km northwest of Tahiti. Former cultural and religious center of East Polynesia, it is now not to be missed. True cradle of the Maohi culture, it remains the second economic pole of French Polynesia.

The Island of Raiatea
Located 210km northwest of Tahiti, Raiatea is the largest of the Leeward Islands. Dear to the heart of Polynesian people, the island has this special magical atmosphere.
Former cultural and religious centre of Eastern Polynesia, it was the first island of our archipelagos to be populated but also the epicentre of the migratory flow within the Polynesian triangle, which is made of Hawai’i, New Zealand and Rapa Nui. It is where it all began…
Cradle of the mā’ohi culture, it is often called, and rightly so, the “sacred island”. You may not know it but it also shares its lagoon with the island of Taha’a, which gives you much more options to explore.
Not only is it the second economic pole of French Polynesia but it is also a historical and cultural centre which holds many sites waiting to be discovered.
