The Radisson Plaza Resort Tahiti will open its doors and begin welcoming guests June 1, 2004. Situated on four acres in the town of Arue, the heartland of the old Tahitian royal family, the 165-room resort is the only hotel with direct access to Lafayette Beach, a black sand beach spanning 2,600 feet. All guestrooms and suites overlook the ocean with large terraces and 31 standard guestrooms feature private Jacuzzis on the terrace with louvered shutters for privacy.

To celebrate its opening, the Radisson Plaza Resort Tahiti is offering a special package, offering rates as low as $273.50 per person to experience this luxurious five-star resort.

The Tahiti`s Exotic East package includes:

  • Two nights accommodations in an Ocean View room (automatic upgrade based on availability).
  • Morning boat excursion including visits to historic Matavai Bay, dolphin-watching, snorkelling tour and coconut demonstration.
  • East Coast Exotic Escape half-day morning excursion including visits to Taharaa, Venus Point, the Blow Hole and majestic waterfalls.
  • Exotic welcome flowers.

    The package is available for 27,350 CFP (approx. $273.50 U.S.) per person, based on double occupancy, from June 1 – December 31, 2004.

This full-service resort, with its peaceful location away from the hustle and bustle of busy Papeete, will no doubt change the complexion of travel to the island, encouraging guests to stay longer than the typical one-night stopover on the way to other islands. Our special opening package offers travellers the opportunity to truly explore the island and see all it has to offer, and will surely entice guests to stay longer, said General Manager Philippe Guitton.

The Radisson Plaza Resort Tahiti features 86 ocean-view rooms, 53 suites and 26 duplex suites. The guestrooms and suites feature a contemporary, locally-inspired decor accented with vintage black and white photos of Tahiti and handicrafts by local artisans, while at the same time offering the latest in modern technology, with flat-screen televisions and high speed Internet access in every room.

The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and features a cosmopolitan menu with a Polynesian, European and Southeast Asian influence. The resort also features the expansive Lafayette Bar and the James Norman Hall Lounge.

In addition to the resort`s large pool, the Radisson Plaza Resort Tahiti Club La Plage is a comprehensive water sports center offering PADI dive lessons and certification, snorkelling, kayaking, jet ski rentals and sail boat rentals.

The resort`s full-service spa, Le Spa, features two double treatment rooms with jet baths, two single treatment rooms, vichy shower, a full-service salon and a fitness area.

Three additional meeting rooms each offer 118 square feet of meeting space, and a large terrace overlooking the Pacific Ocean is available for pre-function events. The resort also offers a comprehensive business center featuring four computers with high speed Internet access, printers, copy services, fax machine, etc
