After a long trip we stayed one night at relais fenua. It s a family pension with lot of charme. Very clean and good beds. We can recommend it to stay! There is a shop nearby and in the evening you have a food truck or a pizzeria. (We went to the foodtruck and it was very good)

I stayed here as a solo traveller for 3nights after a 7 day kayaking trip in Raiatea. I arranged pick up and drop off from airport at extra cost but there is also a very cheap local bus that runs past the entrance daily except Sunday. The room was perfectly adequate with private facilities and a cool shaded out door... More

I stayed there for four nights after spending 5 nights in much more pricey places on the islands. First of all it was very affordable considering Tahiti is so expensive in general. Included was even a taxi ride from the ferry to the hotel (20 minutes). The manager Vincent answered the phone every time I had a question (before my... More

Homey and cozy. Tucked in an alley behind a wired fence enclosed with goats and chickens. Don't recommend trying to find on your first visit. Taxi from the airport cost $45 for 10 mins drive about 6 miles. Compact manual Hyundai available for rent by owner for $70/day plus $15 insurance unlimited mileage. Rooms and inside are like Motel 6.... More

Accommodation is basic but perfectly adequate. Vincent the manager, looks after the place and takes care of his guests very well. Bread and homemade jams and cakes were provided for breakfast and a range of fruit was provided on request but this depended on the quality of fruit available. Vincent was happy to accommodate any requests, including provision of a... More

My husband and I stayed on Tahiti coming and leaving other Polynesian Islands so we were there two nights total. I choose Relais Fenua because I had read reviews that there was a beautiful beach near by and I was not disappointed there was a very nice beach within easy walking distance and the snorkeling was also good.

We booked Relais Fenua wanting an clean, friendly and affordable place away from Papeete (but accessible) and easy access to the west coast of Tahiti... This is exactly what we got.

Relais Fenua was a fantastic hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed our time here. In a very good location, right near the nicest beach in Tahiti. Clean and pleasant rooms. The best thing for me about Relais Fenua was the family atmosphere. Very friendly and personable. Airport transfers were very useful as well. We arrived in Tahiti at midnight and it... More
