Beautiful Crafts
Sep 2018 • Couples
We walked past this shop when a beautiful Ukelele caught our eye. We went in and received excellent service from the young lady who was in the shop, unfortunately we didnt get her name. She was very helpful. Definitely recommend a visit to this gallery.

Lovely Tahitian crafts
Sep 2018 • Couples
My husband and I were looking for Tahitian crafts or antiques, and came across the shop. We bought a lovely wood carved turtle that had small black pearls inserted into the portion of the shell. The staff was very gracious, and helpful.

good gallery of original art
Feb 2018
Although I did not purchase anything, I found this gallery to have an exceptional collection of carefully created pieces in a variety of media. Pieces are well displayed, and the collection is not overwhelming in size.

Perfect Service - International Posted Artwork
Apr 2017 • Couples
I purchased a beautifully-carved heart-shaped wooden box for my wife's birthday and Anais assisted in having it posted to Australia. The packaging was incredible, in a very strong foam container and the box arrived without damage. Her service was so professional with updates of the postage and tracking details. I can't recommend this gallery highly enough. Beautiful artwork and carvings that you will not find elsewhere in the resorts.

Lots of good displays, featuring a wide variety of interesting items. Good information in several languages. Many good photos. Outside there is a garden area, with many native plant, which is well worth looking at.

Great high end gift shop.
Mar 2017 • Couples
After wandering around downtown Papeete for an hour, and looking at all the same junk, we stumbled across this Business, Manua Exquisite Tahitian Art. This was a treasure chest of very unique items from the Tahiti. We where treated like royalty from the minute we entered. Great place to find that unique gift to remember your travels by. Anais was WONDERFUL.. and very knowledgeable. Nothing cheap here... you will pay a decent price- our piece was one of a kind.

Authentic Polynesian Art
Jan 2017
This little shop on the main road in Papeete, Tahiti is worth a look. Inside is a variety of carvings from native artists in French Polynesia. We wanted to find something that we could carry back on the plane with us, so we found a traditional nasal pipe carved from wood and bone.The artist was from the Marquesas Island of Nuku Hiva. When visiting this island 3 years ago, we thought we would find shops with carvings. No luck. The artists are on the island, but not the shops. What we learned is when you find something you like - buy it. You may not find that item again. We would recommend Manua Exquisite Tahitian Art to people who are interested in traditional Polynesian carvings.

Fabulous Art Gallery
Oct 2016 • Couples
We were in Papeete a couple of days before a Paul Gauguin cruise and luckily stopped into Manua Tahitian Art gallery. Bought a wonderful piece of art. Then returned to the shop after our cruise and purchased more items. Anais and Tahia were fabulous in guiding us thru the shop. Don't miss this location if you visit Papeete!!
