But a growing number of tourists also look for something else as well, accommodation that is eco-responsible and respectful of the environment. Many hotels and Tahitian Guesthouses are now committed to the development of a sustainable tourism that preserves the rich natural heritage of French Polynesia. Tahitians have at heart to make you live a unique experience, in an environment preserved from mass tourism. Discover the local culture and learn the main gestures to be in harmony with this lush nature. High-end hotels and more affordable establishments offer eco-friendly accommodation solutions. Here are a few options that you may want to consider.
Eco-responsible hotels in Tahiti, Bora Bora and Taha’a
Te Moana Tahiti Resort is committed to respect the environment through the application of sustainable practices. The Intercontinental Tahiti Resort & Spa has a Fare Reserve, a protected area for marine species. On the island of Moorea, the Manava Beach Resort & Spa works in cooperation with the To’a Nui association to ensure the preservation of the coral reef in the area surrounding the hotel. These three exceptional hotels are all committed to protect the unique and fragile ecosystem of French Polynesia.
An eco-responsible vacation in Bora Bora depends greatly on the accommodation you choose. To help protect the biodiversity of The Islands of Tahiti and preserve the underwater ecosystem, the Bora Bora Pearl Resort and the Taha’a Pearl Resort have become members of the Biorock coral reef protection program. Many of the coral gardens you find in the hotels are also nurseries, ensuring the preservation of the coral. In Bora Bora, the Conrad Bora Bora Nui hotel is involved in protecting the manta rays in the lagoon and the Maitai Polynesia hotel actively encourages the development of responsible tourism. Eco-responsibility is also part of the training program for employees of the Four Seasons Resort, where a large system of solar panels contributes to the hotel’s energy requirements.
