A new wave
Blue, the color which characterizes the Tuamotu so well comes in a myriad of different shades in Tikehau, right there in front of us. The jewels of the sea and the living marine fauna that so impressed Jacques Cousteau are best discovered under the surface. The new identity of our resort proudly reflects the ocean and its treasures.
The Peaceful one
Le Tikehau is blue. All kinds of blue, sky blue, ocean blue, lagoon blue. The blue of peace and purity of preserved nature. Its emblem is the Tahitian pearl in its oyster. It is an invitation to immerse yourself in a parallel universe, that shows its treasures to those who respect it.
Le Tikehau is blue, surrounded by variations of blue. Where sky and water meet, the horizon is barely visible. The sky transfers its colors to the sea, erupting into dazzling turquoise, clear azure, sapphire or cyan. It all depends on where you look and on the time of day.
Like a pearl hidden in its oyster, Le Tikehau sits on a private motu. Its 37 bungalows and suites are built with natural materials, the overwater rooms are set on the translucent lagoon. The decoration is charming and comfortable, the grounds are a green and flowered oasis on this land of coral.
Treasures of the Pacific Ocean
A fairy-tale underwater world is visible through the glass floor. That world is only three steps down from an overwater unit, three steps in the sand from a beach bungalow. Our visitors will meet multicolored fish, marvel at corals in all kinds of shapes. Each foray in that universe, with or without air tanks, is unique and exhilarating.
The generosity of atolls such as Tikehau also expresses itself through pearl oysters. They give birth to the Tahitian pearls and produce the mother-of-pearl that Polynesians carve so finely.
Thus are born the jewelry and original accessories that can be found in our boutique. The ancestral art of Polynesian massage, taurumi, is another treasure to be discovered in our massage fare. Our restaurant displays the treasures of fishing, that the Pa’umotu people practice with the deepest respect for the ocean.
From the simplest swim to the discovery of oceanic depths, kayaking, scuba diving or rowing an outrigger canoe, revitalize yourself in the infinite shades of blue of our atoll. In the Tuamotu, we know how difficult it is to find the rarest pearl, the one that the ocean blesses with its many colors. Its exceptional location and its caring staff truly make Le Tikehau a rare gem.
