Lovely but not for everyone

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 21, 2008

Le Taha'a is a lovely hotel in many ways, but it is not a good fit for everyone. The layout of the overwater bungalows does not maximize privacy (they are also constructed to protect you from the wind, which is a shame as without any breeze you are forced to turn on the a/c and miss out on all the sounds of the sea -- the windows are very sound-proof). However, the bungalows themselves are gorgeous, with fabulously comfortable beds, elegant furnishings, and good amenities. The showers tend to be slow-draining, however.

The service ranges from excellent to completely unacceptable, as does the food. The spa is located by a very buggy pond, and when we were there, the spa did not have air conditioning (so we opted for a slightly awkward in-room massage). The reason the pond is so buggy is because they do not treat it for insects -- I am not sure if there is a legal reason for this or if they are trying to be conservation-minded. I am all for conservation, but the unfortunate effect of the spa's direct proximity to the pond is that you will never be able to enjoy a massage in one of their lovely circular rooms (with many windows and open doorways with no screens) and listen to the breeze. You'll get bit up. They may fix the a/c situation, but the full potential of the spa will never be realized.

The hotel caters mainly to repeat visitors in the 50-and-over crowd, although there are also honeymooners.

Unique Quality: The "gastronomic" restaurant, Ohiri, is a gourmand's dream. Their 9-course "trusting" menu takes into account your preferences and allergies and creates your very own meal. I highly recommend paying extra to have wines paired with each course. The wines are expertly paired and they do not skimp on pours. Our berry-themed _second dessert_ came with a pink Veuve Cliquot champagne. Heaven.
