Manihi Pearl Beach Resort

Manihi Atoll is 325 miles from Tahiti, has a lagoon 18 miles long and 4 wide. It's principle source of income is black pearl farming, and the total population of 400 live in village of Turipaoa next to a reef pass of the same name. Manihi is famous for the aggregations of mating grouper that occur in July.

Manihi Pearl Beach Resort
The Manihi Pearl Beach Resort is a 4-star hotel set on the lagoon shore on the western side of Mahini Atoll. The resort blends traditional Polynesian architecture and building materials such as local hardwoods, bamboo & pandanus palms with modern touches such as mini bars and TV!

22 Beach Bungalows are spread along the palm-fringed shoreline and provide access to the beach and the shallow waters of the lagoon. All the bungalows have IDD telephones, mini-bars, ceiling fans, in-room safe, TV and coffee/tea facilities. King size beds and an additional sofa bed cater for all sleeping arrangements and there is a luxuriously appointed en suite bathroom with shower. A private decked sun terrace with loungers gives unobstructed views of the lagoon.

14 Over Water and 5 Premium Over Water Bungalows fan out at the end of 3 long pontoons that reach over the reef flat to where reef dips down into the inner lagoon. Each has a glass "table" set in the floor that allows you to admire the day to day life of the reef. A private sun deck at room level has a curved stairway that leads down to the warm waters of the lagoon. Why have a shower first thing in the morning when you can go for a swim in Mahini lagoon?! All the Over Water Bungalows have the same facilities as the Beach Bungalows, but are more capacious and with a far grander setting!

The resort's Poe Rava Restaurant and terrace face the lagoon and are a romantic setting in which to enjoy the delicious mixture of European and Polynesian cuisine. The nearby Miki Miki Bar is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy your favourite cocktail after a busy day's diving or exploration! Imagine sipping a refreshing drink of exotic fruit juices and rum (don't forget the umbrella!) while tucking into fresh sashimi followed by roasted Tuna in coconut a crust with ginger sauce. Burp!

The resort also has a boutique selling a variety of everyday items and souvenirs, and there is a dedicated shop selling black pearls, for which Tahiti is so famous. Beware - they take credit cards!

The resort has a freshwater pool, located by the bar and close to the beach, and has a selection of canoes & kayaks with which to explore some of the nearby motu. The tour desk can arrange such activities as fishing trips, visits to local villages and black pearl farms, island tour and skippered boat rental.

The Manihi Pearl Beach Resort has its own in house dive operation Manihi Blue Nui Diving, equipped with new dive gear and modern, fast dive boats. Up to 3 dives a day are offered to Manihi's awesome reefs, drop-offs and passes. July is a particularly excellent month for divers, as this is when groupers congregate in their tens of thousands to mate along Manihi's reefs. For divers who love manta rays, this is one of the places to come in the world.
