In Polynesia, hospitality is not just an empty word. This accommodation option is the most perfect embodiment of local hospitality as suggested by the name of the Polynesian association of small family-run hotels, “Haere Mai”, which means, “Come to us”. Staying in a small family-run hotel is first and foremost an adventure within an adventure, and, based on the type of accommodation you select, is an opportunity for total immersion in the daily life of a Polynesian family.
Don't miss a chance to share, see, understand, feel and experience life in the islands as if you were a long-lost relative returning home. Some of you will fish in the lagoon with your hosts; others will follow the children as they hike the mountains in search of waterfalls and pools to swim in. Others may, based on the advice of the owners and occasionally even joining with them, discover local products and cuisine.
Living in a traditional Polynesian fare, whether constructed of traditional or modern materials, in locations that are not too well-known yet very scenic in the welcoming and spontaneous warmth of a Polynesian family is a unique experience that combines tourism in search of authenticity with friendliness, quiet and intimacy, discovery and open space. It is also a way to play a role in safeguarding and protecting local heritage and the environment.
Small Polynesian hotels, available on every island to cater to the needs of tourists, offer more than 1,500 units rated according to comfort and service quality.
