Hilton announces the opening of Hilton Hotel Tahiti

Hilton has announced the opening of Hilton Hotel Tahiti. This is the hospitality chain’s third property in French Polynesia.

Location and History

Hilton Hotel Tahiti offers easy access to the downtown attractions of Papeete and Maritime Port and is situated just 2 miles from the international airport.

Hilton Hotel Tahiti honors a rich island heritage. Formerly known as Hotel Tahiti, it was the first hotel in the destination to attract international attention in 1960. Built on land that formed part of the Tahitian royal family estate, the hotel became a hub of Tahitian social life and welcomed personalities – including movie stars, politicians, and royal families – from all over the world.

Extensive renovations have introduced more natural light to shared areas offering an open-air lobby and stunning ocean views, bringing the natural beauty of Moorea Island and the Pacific Ocean to every corner.

Gary Steffen, Global Brand Head, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, said:

With nearly 20 percent of Hilton Hotels & Resorts’ pipeline dedicated to growing our resort portfolio, Hilton Hotel Tahiti is an exciting addition to our flagship brand. As we anticipate more guests wanting to book travel to dream destinations like Tahiti, this beautiful new resort is a prime example of the premium amenities, exceptional service and exotic locale that our brand is known for throughout the world.

The 3 onsite restaurants provide elevated fine dining experiences with thoughtfully curated menus that focus on sustainably sourced, fresh ingredients and reflect island culture and culinary influences. Guests can enjoy traditional Tahitian fare at Moevai; fish and steak with a French bent at Taitea Brasserie; and Southeast Asian cuisine at The Asian. These offerings are rounded out by the hotel’s 2 bars: the Heiva Lounge in the open-air lobby, offering spectacular ocean views and a bespoke collection of wine; and the Vaipuna poolside bar that offers unique, tropical libations as well as traditional cocktails.


The resort’s grounds are equally distinct and have been designed to bring the beauty of nature in, while also providing spaces that are accessible, yet elegant. The pool, the largest in Tahiti, overlooks Moorea Island and has 6 private cabanas as well as a poolside restaurant. A boutique-style spa is available for those looking to be pampered and guests looking to keep up their workout routine while in paradise can visit the fitness center. Hilton Hotel Tahiti features the largest ballroom and meeting space in French Polynesia.

Meanwhile, Hilton recently announced the opening of Hilton Nagasaki, expanding its flagship presence in Japan.
