Tikehau Fafarua Lodge is located on a private island in the south-east of the Tikehau atoll (Tuamotu Archipelago), and is only accessible by boat, approximately a 30-minute lagoon-ride from the main village. You will soon reach a succession of islets called “Fafarua” (which means manta ray) that all boast beautiful beaches of white and pink coral sands, sheltered from the prevailing winds by coconut groves. One of these islets is home to the Fafarua Lodge and spreads across 15 acres of coconut trees and native unspoiled vegetation.
The islet is bordered by a long stretch of white-sand beach on the lagoon side, and an extensive coral reef on the ocean side.
Although the Private Island is extremely remote from any facilities, it has all the modern comfort one would expect: electricity, hot and cold water, nice furnishings, a fully-equipped kitchen, ample spaces, cell phone network and an Internet connection.
Tikehau Fafarua Lodge was built in the most traditional style with a spacious design, open spaces, a wooden structure and corrugated iron sheets for roofing, typical of the Tuamotu Archipelago. The owners of this charming Villa estate were very cautious about using as much materials from the islet as they possibly could, or materials produced locally, and to be respectful of the environment all along the process, from building the Villa to operating it today.
Tikehau Fafarua Lodge features 3 airy, well-ventilated double bedrooms, two of which have an extra single bed. Tikehau Fafarua Lodge can accommodate 8 people.
