Motu Teta, Rangiroa, French Polynesia
Pure solitude. Total adventure. Uncompromised luxury.
In Rangiroa, Tahiti, on an atoll dotted with uninhabited islands, there is a tropical island called Motu Tetaraire. She is a natural gem untouched by civilization, unspoiled by tourism and this private paradise is waiting for you. Here is an underwater realm that begins where pristine white coral and sand beaches end; a place of turquoise waters and absolute silence, except for the wind rustling the palm fronds and soft surf lapping the shore of the lagoon.
Immerse yourself in splendid isolation. No one else is on the island except the dedicated staff who will see to your every need. Snorkel, windsurf or explore the lagoon in an outrigger boat. Lie in a hammock and sip Champagne. Go sailing, kiting or simply relax. This is your exclusive, private refuge with all the comforts you might expect, all in the friendly Polynesian style.
Location and Transfers
The private island of Motu Teta is in Rangiroa, the largest atoll in Tuamoto Archipelago in the South Pacific, part of French Polynesia. The resort is a 90 minute boat ride from Rangiroa Airport, which is a 60 minute flight west of Faa’a International Airport in Papeete, the capital of Tahiti.
Motu Teta is a small portion of judiciously-chosen civilization within this Eden – only the most refined and pleasurable elements have been incorporated into the island’s design. Created with exquisite taste to blend with the island’s natural environment, there is a main villa and a guest residence which are constructed in a classically Tahitian style – rich hardwoods, airy open beams and open wooden shutter windows to allow the caress of the South Pacific breezes. Modern conveniences such as flat screen television and an extensive DVD and CD collection are available.
Upscale comforts and amenities flawlessly integrate with the serenity of this island paradise. Each residence is complemented by a large veranda that invites you to relax and enjoy the incredible, unobstructed views of the fantastic azure, turquoise-coloured Rangiroa Lagoon with shores just a few steps from the deck… where bathing suits are optional.
