Time seems to have stopped in Taha'a, a secretive and secluded island where, while strolling along paths across the island, you will discover unspoiled vegetation.Discovering the secrets of Tahitian vanilla in its natural environment will make you fall in love with Taha'a even more. Visitors enjoy sampling vanilla tahitensis, a unique and precious vanilla that tastes like nothing that you would have experienced before.

Just like patient alchemists, specialists pamper their Tahitian vanilla for many months before the miracle begins to happen.Feel like Robinson Crusoe, lying on the fine sand dotted with beautiful palm trees, facing crystal clear water on the motu of Taha'a. The scenery is perfect in and out of the water.
