PAPEETE, Tahiti - Travelers now have a new escape when visiting the capital of French Polynesia, with the opening of the new 200-room Hilton Hotel Tahiti. Conveniently offering easy access to the downtown attractions of Papeete and Maritime Port, the resort is situated just two miles from the international airport, allowing guests to quickly start their visit.
“With nearly 20 percent of Hilton Hotels & Resorts’ pipeline dedicated to growing our resort portfolio, Hilton Hotel Tahiti is an exciting addition to our flagship brand,” said Gary Steffen, global brand head, Hilton Hotels & Resorts. “As we anticipate more guests wanting to book travel to dream destinations like Tahiti, this beautiful new resort is a prime example of the premium amenities, exceptional service and exotic locale that our brand is known for throughout the world.”
Hilton Hotel Tahiti honors a rich island heritage. Formerly known as Hotel Tahiti, it was the first hotel in the destination to attract international attention in 1960. Built on land that formed part of the Tahitian royal family estate, the hotel became a hub of Tahitian social life and welcomed personalities — including movie stars, politicians, and royal families — from all over the world.
Hilton Hotel Tahiti, Hilton’s third property in French Polynesia, has been reimagined for today’s sophisticated traveler and features new interiors, concepts, and services that celebrate the very best of Tahitian elegance Extensive renovations have introduced more natural light to shared areas offering an open-air lobby and stunning ocean views, bringing the natural beauty of Moorea Island and the Pacific Ocean to every corner.
Signature Hilton hospitality paired with an array of on-site amenities create an environment that speaks to chic and refined travel. The three onsite restaurants provide elevated fine dining experiences with thoughtfully curated menus that focus on sustainably sourced, fresh ingredients and reflect island culture and culinary influences. Guests can enjoy traditional Tahitian fare at Moevai; fish and steak with a French bent at Taitea Brasserie; and Southeast Asian cuisine at The Asian. These offerings are rounded out by the hotel's two bars: the Heiva Lounge in the open-air lobby, offering spectacular ocean views and a bespoke collection of wine; and the Vaipuna poolside bar that offers unique, tropical libations as well as traditional cocktails.
The resort’s grounds are equally distinct and have been designed to bring the beauty of nature in, while also providing spaces that are accessible, yet elegant. The pool, the largest in Tahiti, overlooks Moorea Island and has six private cabanas as well as a poolside restaurant. A boutique-style spa is available for those looking to be pampered and guests looking to keep up their workout routine while in paradise can visit the fitness center. Hilton Hotel Tahiti features the largest ballroom and meeting space in French Polynesia, a space that aptly lends itself to gatherings and events of all sizes, large and small.
