Expert advisors of Tahiti & Her Islands

 

Frédéric

 
Frédéric has been working with Yestahiti for over 10 years and has traveled the Society and Tuamotu islands, as well as the Marquesas and the Australs. He carefully reviews the best deals daily in order to offer you the best possible rates for any given itinerary. Ideas for tours and discovery are no secret to him and he always analyzes his clients’ specific requests ensuring their stay is memorable.
 
His favorite islands: Huahine et Raivavae
 
His first advice: “Get off the beaten tracks.
Bora Bora, the Pearl of the Pacific, remains a must-see in your itinerary for first time visitors. However with so many secluded islands you will leave with fond memories of outstanding sceneries and friendly human encounters.
The local people are so friendly and love to introduce you to the authentic Polynesia. Let me help you book a vacation that will be exactly what you expect!’’
 
 

Mahearani

Further to her studies in visual communication, Mahearani first followed her passion for the islands and French Polynesia whilst working on the promotion of the Tahiti cultured pearl and the “Maison de la Perle” in Tahiti. She joined the team of Yestahiti in early 2011 and is now in charge of managing our website. Her love for images and unique lights found around our islands definitely reflects the various contents of our website.
 
Her favorite islands:
Moorea, given her proximity of Tahiti (30 minutes away by ferry boat), is ideal to relax after a flight. It is the perfect scenic place to practice stand-up paddle board and have a “motu” islet picnic with friends while facing Haapiti district. Rangiroa has remained genuine. It is like Bora Bora 20 years ago. It hosts an incredible lagoon and passes making it a special place for scuba diving. Besides, fans of the famous Tahiti black pearl will have the opportunity to visit the largest pearl farm of French Polynesia.
 
Her advice:
Bear in mind that Tahiti and Her Islands are not just blue lagoons and white sandy beaches. Make the most of the Polynesian “art of living”:
• Discover local handicraft
• Be mesmerized by the Polynesian culture (dance, songs and costumes)
• Share a traditional Polynesian meal with flavors that are surprising and delicious.
I promise, these are the best moments along with the friendly Tahitian greeting!
 

Ariimana

He is a fan of his islands and his culture. He joined the team in 2005. Better than anyone, he is an expert in the knowledge of the islands’ various accommodation possibilities and discovery tracks. He is the perfect example of our friendly Polynesian people whether you are in touch with him by email, Skype or on the phone!
 
His favorite islands: Tahiti and Raiatea
 
“Upon arrival, stay a few days on the main island of Tahiti before heading to the other islands. Discover the mythical wave of Teahupoo or do an introductory surf course on the east coast. A few surf schools are open to everyone. Go across the island with a guide, hiking or on a 4WD safari trip and admire breathtaking sceneries and swim in the magnificent cascades.
After dusk, be mesmerized by beautiful traditional dancing and singing shows and discover the strength of our ma’ohi culture.”
 

Ruta

Ruta is our latest member of the group! Passionate by her culture especially traditional dancing and painting), she could tell you her favourites Polynesian myths and legends for hours!
She will be able to guide you, give you good advices and organise for you an unforgettable trip to French Polynesia!
 
Her favorite islands: Moorea and Raiatea
 
Before heading to the islands, how about a short stop in Tahiti to swim with dolphins, to explore by 4WD its lush valleys and groves and to sip a fresh cocktail while watching its magnificent sunset at the end of the day.
If Tahiti is too “modern” for you, consider the ferry to visit Tahiti’s sister island, Moorea! A charming sandy island ideal for sunbath breaks near the beautiful turquoises lagoons. Tahiti and her islands, is now an affordable destination to almost any budget, whether you come with your family, your lover or alone! Come and share the lifestyle of the islands by experiencing its warmth and genuine welcome! I only have one piece of advice to give you: relax and make the most of every single moment!

A tourism entity in French Polynesia


Our travel agency founders literally created tourism in Tahiti and Her Islands nearly 50 years ago.
Nowadays, our teams welcome more than half of visitors to French Polynesia every year and book a quarter of the stays occurring in the various islands of the country.
Our teams are made of passionate experts, most of them native from the various islands of French Polynesia and are pleased to share their country with visitors.

A unique expertise, even in Tahiti


Our booking, marketing, product development teams and travel advisors visit the lodging facilities and service providers once or twice a year, not only in the main islands but also in the most remote areas which sometimes shelter a little corner of paradise. Detailed summary reports are prepared further to any inspection and are shared on a database allowing all our staff to benefit from accurate and up-to-date information. We therefore hold unique knowledge and information of all our products.

Guaranteeing you the best rates and special offers

 
Our position as the leader on the Tahitian market allows us to benefit from the best rates and booking conditions.
Thanks to our annual sales volume, we will often offer our clients exclusive advantages such as excursions, activities and additional services.
We systematically look for the best available offers and the best possible value for every single client’s request.
We won’t hesitate to recommend changes in your itinerary in order to match your budget more accurately.
We do not print a yearly catalog since we are constantly informed of the best deals in the hotels and immediately include them in our proposals.

Totally flexible package deals

 
Numerous packages are offered through Yestahiti and other travel agencies. However, every travel project to Tahiti and Her Islands is specific. The sample itineraries presented on our website benefit from a long experience and we know they will bring satisfaction to our clients.
Nevertheless, with these suggestions, we make every effort to carefully understand our clients’ expectations and to suggest the best options and alternatives meeting their demands. In all our contact forms we invite you to fully express your expectations, what you like and dislike! In the end, you choose the trip made especially for you that is totally unique.

A search for hidden paradise locations and traveling off the beaten trackS


Our local roots and daily involvement in Polynesia’s life and culture prompt us to suggest using more local accommodation and stays on islands which you may never have heard of. We know that these will bring more authentic and original travel experiences outside of the usual modern world you live in. The variety of islands and possibilities of travel allow us to prepare trips with the fragrance of Tahiti’s yesteryear. Some islands are off the track and have remained identical to the last century. Their inhabitants are usually friendlier and will help you experience the magic of Tahiti and Her Islands.

A promise to fully assist YOU upon arrival and departure and throughout your stay

 
Our operational teams (chauffeurs, guides, hostesses) are committed to you at any step of your trip.

Ia Orana Ruta,
 
Sorry for my late reply, returning after 4 weeks of absence was busy ...
 
You will find below our responses to your questions.
 
Overall, we had a wonderful stay in Polynesia. We only regretted unwanted guests (cockroaches) in some hotels, including the Hilton Moorea that was totally infested (we changed our bungalow but the problem is repeated), which is unfortunate for a 5 star hotel. This is perhaps part of the landscape, yet we do not met Taha or Bora Bora for example. Otherwise, everything was perfect.
 
Thank you for your time and responsiveness to organize this trip. We will not hesitate to advise Yestahiti or use your services again in the case of a possible stay in Polynesia, even if it is not in the program in the coming years (given the distance and cost). Maruru!
 
 Best regards
 
Felicie

Do you have any particular opinion to give?
The tour "Dolphin Encounter" in Moorea has not met our expectations. We walked along the island coast (within 50 m) and the guide gave us information on the island, but we do not really try avaons dolphins. We felt that this tour was consolidated with the tour visiting the lagoon.

Thank you very much for organizing our stay which was wonderful. Also thank you for your very interesting book about French Polynesia.
 
The Moorea Pearl Resort is fine but the view is blocked by the overwater bungalows.
 
We'll recommend French Polynesia to our friends for the beauty and diversity of landscapes, the kindness of the Tahitians, and a still reasoned tourism (except maybe in Bora Bora).
 
Our stay was 21 days long with the visit of 6 islands (Tahiti, Moorea, Huahine, Taha'a, Bora Bora and Tikehau) and a three days stop in each island. It should not be less (do not forget to consider the transfer time).
One or two excursions are really needed on each island to better understand the lives of the islands and their various seascapes and landscapes.
 
Excellent organization of "YesTahiti".

We hope your holidays are going well and you are enjoying the warmth of France (heat spades now with temperatures of 35 to 40 °, for us it's huge !!!!).
 
From our side, our journey to Polynesia was completed last Friday.
 
We still want to thank you for the circuit you made us; we took full eyes and everything was impeccable, no false notes either in hotels or on planes and transfers.
 
We were able to attend the first performance of Heiva Bora (wonderful for us because you, you are perhaps "blasé" of these dances ...) which unfortunately ended in a flood ....
 
Again MAURURU.
 
Sincerely
 
Nana

We stayed situation, near to 4 weeks in French Polynesia, spent 2 nights on board Maupiti Kuiri: rustic but very attractive, warm, friendly, and great food eaten together around a long table
-3 Nights in Raiatea Lodge where Front and Karine Olivier is excellent, nice property facing the splendid sunset, a big thank you to Christian for his tour of the island and the smallest day so unexpected and nice.
Damage to the curfew at 5 am! no more animation on Raiatea - 3 nights in Tahaa Fare Pea Iti, absolutely beautiful and good atmosphere with Pascal and Marilyn - 3 Nights at the Mahana in Huahine relays, small cleanliness issues in the bathroom, but nice place anyway, the The island is very beautiful, very lush, not much to see
- 3 nights in Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort: luxury bath on stilts, we loved visiting the black tips and rays that came our border at night, but we have not benefited much because the island weather except on Matira Beach, beautiful.
5 nights in Rangiroa Lagoon Raira we made splendid excursions (especially the blue lagoon and the island to the exceptional reefs!) But regretted the welcome and attitude of Jean-Fred is somewhat whimsical. He should leave the relationship to its employees ...
-5 Nights in Fakarava at pension Hawaiki where everyone is lovely, welcoming, friendly. Again, beautiful excursions "the south and green lagoon pass) and a lovely pearl harvested in the lottery (a pearl and it was there that he is bought in). And diving !!!! ! that beautiful meetings, Surtour with dolphins Rangiroa.
In short! Everything was very nice, very good, very expensive! ...

Hello Ruta
 
Sorry to reply you so late!
You know that I was also thinking to write you an email??
 
First of all, to thank you for the perfect organization; everything went so smooth (except the delay of the flight back to Japan, but this is on Air Tahiti!!).
It is difficult to describe how tense are our memories, how many beautiful images and emotions we have in our heart from the journey.
Definitely it was like we were dreaming about…and I think that this says it all.
We enjoyed all the places….nice, comfortable…warm atmosphere… However, the private island of Vahine definitely impressed us. We loved it and would really really like to go there again; when we come back to Polynesia, we will stop there again!
Snorkeling trip in Bora Bora was nice, very well organized.
 
I think that the sea in Polynesia is unique: the sea life, the possibility to snorkel at a few meters from the shore, the beaches with turquoise water…
 
I hope to contact you again in the incoming future for another trip in Polynesia.
Thank you again for your support.

Ia Orana,
 
This mail to give you a very positive feedback from our trip to Polynesia! The organization was very satisfactory and your reactivity to our various requests were much appreciated.
We have discussed with a travel plan already established, the choice of hotels and services were ours and we must say, your rate was the most competitive.
Here we felt, some points have nothing to do with your benefits but could be used to advise other clients.
Before leaving:
 
• It is very pleasant to talk with a recommended installed in Polynesia rather than a provider in France, and especially to be able to pay online by credit card
 
Arriving in Tahiti:
• Warm welcome, transfer to the dock safely.
• It might be useful to have in the bag delivered to the airport some practical information on the transfer in Moorea, some travelers were lost
 
In Moorea:
• The provider who arranges the shipment between the dock and the hotel uses buses that would not be allowed to carry passengers in many countries. This is not necessarily a problem but it would prevent customers who would use a means of transport that suit them best means additional cost.
• At Hilton, we had a deluxe villa with pool and we finally had a beach bungalow stilts, it was a very good surprise, do not hesitate to direct your clients to search.
• The hike to the neck of the 3 coconut trees is ideal for out of the hotel for a morning a little off the beaten path route. We learn a lot about the flora and fauna of Moorea.
 
In Tahaa'a:
• Nothing to say, the hotel is great, the island and great, full day excursion "Sea land" is great
• there is a coral garden next to the hotel which is worth a glance
In Bora Bora:
• We were really disappointed with the Meridien because the service is simply non-existent! This unfortunately agree with the comments of the moment on trip advisor. Maybe this is just a bad time for the hotel but we were really dissatisfied with their performance.
 
Back to Tahiti:
• Unfortunately, the flight to Tokyo was postponed for the next day. In full weekend, it was not obvious to reorganize the rest of our trip.
• So, there was apparently no transfer provided for us the next day from the hotel but we arranged with an employee of Tahiti Nui Travel, which dropped us at the airport.
 
Thank you again for organizing this trip!
 
Kind regards,

Tiziana et Bernard

Hello Ruta,
 
We were delighted with our stay in your beautiful islands, and our stay was more than excellent.
 
The reception, organization and accommodation took place perfectly, and we appreciated the kindness of Polynesians. The destinations chosen us we put full the eyes, and we leave boosted for the next eleven months, as we hope to do it again next year? We will not fail to contact you on this occasion.
 
The coordinated inter-island property transfers, one complaint on 23 hour flight we have seemed interminable.
 
About excursions and activities, we were able to swim with the stingrays and black tip sharks, and keep a lasting memory.
  
I will recommend and already recommended to all my friends to visit Tahiti and the islands we visited.
 
As I told you earlier, we think back as early as March or April 2016, if all goes well.
 
You can without any problems using our comments on your website and again thank you for letting us spend a beautiful stay.
 
See you soon I hope.
