In the shadow of majestic Mount Temetiu on the island of Hiva Oa the Hanakee Pearl Lodge plays host to guests of the Marquesas Islands. It is easy to see why painter Paul Gaugin and singer Jaques Brel drew so much inspiration from this verdant island and its beauty is only enhanced when staying at this comfortable lodge.
Each of the hillside suites at Hanakee Pearl Lodge exudes authentic Marquesan craftsmanship, thanks to the 20 local artists and sculptors who lent their talents to the personalization of the décor. The bay of Tahauku, Tehueto Valley and Mount Temetiu are all part of the sweeping views enjoyed from the generous rooms. Choose from Bay View, Mountain View and Premium Ocean View suites and bungalows, each featuring a peaceful outdoor terrace from which to inhale the beauty of the region.
A panoramic view of the landscape greets guests at the restaurant and bar at the main lodge. Dine in the restaurant beneath the peaks of the wood-planked ceiling, or on the spacious outdoor terrace beside the freshwater swimming pool, a romantic setting day or night enveloped in nature.
Hanakee Pearl Lodge serves as the perfect base for those wishing to discover the history and culture of Marquesan society. Find a small communal village on the nearby island Tahuata, fantastic archeological sites, lush groves of banana and papaya amidst the breathtaking landscape, dotted with valleys and rivers. Adventurous off-road treks, hiking and mountain biking are also possible in the picturesque surrounds.Request Information
