Surrounded by white and pink sand on its own private island, the Tikehau Pearl Beach Resort is a tranquil haven. Known as ‘The Pink Island’, Tikehau is considered to be one of the most beautiful atolls in Polynesia, and with its rich marine life and wild coconut groves, it is easy to understand why.

Built in traditional Polynesian style with palm-thatched roofs and woven bamboo walls, the Tikehau Pearl Beach Resort boasts 37 rooms. There are both beach and overwater bungalows available, all of which have air-conditioning and private decks. The beach bungalows are set amidst swaying palms, facing the clear lagoon waters. The overwater bungalows and suites feature glass tables, through which guests can admire the island's colourful underwater world, and the suites have the added appeal of direct access to the lagoon.
The cuisine at Tikehau Resort is a blend of Polynesian and European culinary traditions, favouring fresh local produce, and is served in the Poreho Restaurant. With a terrace overlooking the lagoon, guests can enjoy the delightful dishes while watching the sunset over the island. For a more casual dining experience, The Tianoa Bar is ideally located between the picturesque beach, the freshwater infinity pool and the pristine lagoon.
For those seeking serenity, Tikehau Resort's Manea spa is the perfect place to indulge in relaxing and authentic Polynesian treatments. Venturing further afield, the resort offers a range of activities and excursions, such as an all-day picnic on a secluded islet, a sunset cruise, deep sea or lagoon fishing, or a trip to Bird Island. The dive centre gives scuba divers the opportunity to discover the rich lagoon life of Tikehau Island.
