Authentic and Local Pensions, Boutique Lodges and Guesthouse Specials in The Islands of Tahiti
November 10 2016

LOS ANGELES – (November 10, 2016) The Islands of Tahiti, 118 islands and atolls, world-renowned for their blue lagoons and white sand beaches, feature a warm and authentic culture exemplified in Tahitian hospitality. One of the best ways for visitors to experience the true Tahitian way-of-life is to stay in one of the many family-operated Tahitian pensions (pone-see-owns) ranging from bed and breakfasts to guesthouses and boutique lodges.
 
Pensions offer a local and unique destination experience and a journey through traditional and modern Tahitian life. These Polynesian family-run accommodations, available in all five French Polynesia archipelagoes, have been classified and benchmarked to guarantee standards of comfort and quality.
 
Pensions range from stand-alone bungalows and villas, often called lodges, with charming communal areas for reception, dining, and relaxation to furnished rooms within a Tahitian family home.
 
A stay at a pension offers visitors an experience into how Tahitians live – from locally sourced meals including fresh caught fish and indigenous fruits to activities unique to the surrounding waters and landscape. Stories of history, tradition and legend are shared and exchanged together over meals, bringing Tahitian culture and Mana to life. Mana is what Polynesians refer to as the life force and spirit that connects all living things and can be felt throughout the islands.
 
“The Tahitian culture and spirit invigorates and transports visitors to connect with themselves and their loved ones. From the moment you arrive in The Islands of Tahiti you feel the warm South Pacific air and Polynesian hospitality embrace you.  The opportunity to uncover the fascinating history, culture and ancient traditions throughout the diverse islands, sets our destination apart. Pensions are a fantastic choice to experience the many sides of The Islands of Tahiti and become immersed in the rich Tahitian culture,” shares Jonathan Reap, Managing Director, Tahiti Tourisme North America.
