Tahiti Pensions , French Polynesia: About them

scubaAs an alternative to the luxurious resorts and hotels there are a number of lodging family pensions and private homes in which to stay throughout the exquisite islands of French Polynesia. Staying in pensions is a delightful way to see and explore the charm of the islands and get to know the local people whilst on a budget. Many guests to the islands choose this experience to have greater personal contact with the islanders and to learn about the culture of the island. On some of the more remote islands, such as Rurutu, this is the only accommodation available.

Pensions vary greatly, some have individual rooms or bungalows with private bathroom and hot water, others may have larger rooms for guests to share and only cold water - though cold water is never that chilly in this tropical climate. Many pensions provide meals on request or you will have the use of a kitchen, most will also happily organise recreational activities for you or advise on the local area. The families that operate pensions and guesthouses take much pride in offering you a place in the grounds of their home, ensuring you are always comfortable and enjoy your stay.

The pensions listed are recommended by Diving World, all are of a high standard, clean and comfortable and will ensure your stay is a pleasant one.
