Excellent example of a small Polynesian hotel, affordable and welcoming than grander establishments, this also has the advantage of being ideally positioned where the reef ends: twice a day, the tide changes direction in the pass and dozens of dolphins take the opportunity to put on an acrobatic show.
An extraordinary spectacle that you will admire while reclining comfortably in your deckchair, or settled in one of three bungalows on the beachfront. Four others are in the tropical garden, more withdrawn, but all inspired by traditional Polynesian architecture, as is the bar and the restaurant, which serves up excellent French cuisine with local products. In accordance with its homely guesthouse concept, dinner is served at the host's own table, paired with Rangiroa wines. And yet, the most dreamlike moment could very well be at breakfast, served on the terrace by Tiputa pass. Waking up with a dolphin dance, what more could you ask for?
