At least once In your life , you have to experience the exclusive use of a tropical Dream Island.
FAFARUA Lodge Is a private “motu” : when you rent it, it is reserved exclusively for you. It Is an Isolated place where you can enjoy unspoiled natural beauty In private. The 'motu' is accessible only by boat, a 30 minute ride from the village. It is an over 6 hectares area, planted with a vast coconut grove with places of untouched native vegetation. It Is bounded by the sea on all four sides, with sandy beaches on the lagoon side, a large wild reef on the outer side.
Although far from any civilization, the house will offer you the comfort of a villa : nice furnitures, comfortable bedding, fully equipped kitchen, electricity and running water (hot and cold), fans, mobile telephone network and the internet (on a « tropical speed »….).
The house is built in the typical style of the TUAMOTU. It has three bedrooms, one upstairs with a double bed and two with a double bed and a single one. The rooms are simple and colorful, airy and well-ventilated through natural ventilation, equipped with mosquito nets, fans and cupboards.
The lounge on the ground floor is open and spacious,iIncluding a U-shaped seat, that can provide six extra sleeping places. The dining area will set for ten persons. The kitchen is open and fully-equipped. This is a comfortable family home, very open and friendly.
As usual in Polynesian Islands, near the main house, are a 'fare Potee' (covered outdoor seating and dining area), and a 'fare Pape' (outhouse) with bathroom, toilet and laundry.
Away from the beach and the house, In the interior of the 'motu', there Is a small residential home for the staff which Ensures a constant presence.
As the Island is rented “all Inclusive” transfers from and to the airport are Included. Full catering is provided by the staff of the 'motu'. Meal times, and to the extent possible, the menus, are organized by the hostess according to the guests’ wishes.

There are many ways to explore the beautiful TUAMOTU :whether swimming at your exclusive private beach , taking long walks on the reef to explor the wonders of coral reefs, stretching as far as the eye can see, or snorkeling In The 'hoa' (or channels) nature’s real-life aquariums. On the island you can enjoy the coolness of the shade from the coconut palms; the typical vegetation of the TUAMOTU as It Is used by the locals for the coconut milk and to make copra (coconut oil).
Located 20 Kilometers from the village, The 'motu' offers serene isolation in a picture-postcard landscape. Due to the round shape of the Atoll, the 'motu' is equidistant from the village, the Channel or the beaches of the long 'motu' . Only a few small boats pass each other from time-to-time going to a fishing spot or a family coconut grove, and do not break the tranquility of the place.
In addition of the many activities you can have on and around the 'motu', exploring the environment, snorkeling, kayaking, stand up paddling, the boat driver will take you to many sights of interest all around the lagoon for « à la carte » and personalized trips.
For a very unique and personal honeymoon, as well as for a romantic getaway with the one you chose to share this special moment, just the two of you on an isolated Private Island or for a group vacation, sharing with your family or chosen friends the experience of authentic Tuamotu in total privacy, TILEHAU FAFARUA LODGE Private Island will provide you the ultimate experience of being immersed and secluded in one of the nicest and untouched landscape of the world. Certainly one of the best ways to discover the unforgettable charms of The TUAMOTU Archipelago.
The “motu” Fafarua belongs to my family for several generations, but was not inhabited since I started to make this wild and isolated paradise our favorite vacation place.
For more than 15 years we worked to clean it up and build our house, year after year, in full respect of environment.
Being a retired Flight Attendant, I have travelled in many countries as well as in the whole Polynesia. Born from an old Tahitian family, I know many things about French Polynesia and our Tikehau atoll, and like to share my knowledge with people visiting us.

I hope to give to our gests the opportunity to live something very different of the usual touristic trips.
Receiving only one couple or one limited group at a time, allowed complete privacy and gives us the possibility to offer a very personalized service. We invite our guests to let us know, as soon as they have booked, if there is something special that can we prepare or organize to make their stay as convenient as possible.
My wish is to make our guests feel day after day, not only the incomparable beauty of the place, or the stress free comfort of our house and our service, but also the authentic contact with our environment and our Polynesian way of life.
Fafarua Lodge is a tour de force. The team there gives their guests the chance to connect with Nature and its wilderness (breathtaking scenery, a huge and extraordinary lagoon) while providing quality amenities, comfort and services. All that in a place that could have been Robinson Crusoe’s own island.
Eva and Patrick and their crew have a passion for their “motu”, the atoll and its traditions, and clearly love to share it.
We spent two weeks there for a family reunion (three generations, 23 to 77 years of age, from the US and Europe). Each of us could go at his/her own pace, and choose between relaxing, fishing, diving, and discovering the surrounding marvels.
Eva’s cooking was by all means a great experience. Each meal was a feast (various - and very fresh - fish of course, French Polynesian cuisine, but also classic French and North American meals).
This was an extraordinary vacation that we will long remember.
We had the experience of a lifetime here on the motu. It was 7 days of complete relaxation, beauty and luxury! The food was the best we've ever had - fresh fish, fruits and vegetables everyday. Eva is an amazing chef! We got to know the staff while there and were treated like family. The excursions- bird island, swimming with manta rays, snorkeling- everything was perfect. This is a very special place that is truely away from it all.
