Tahiti will welcome the Hilton flagship brand to its main island of Pape’ete in the first half of next year after the company signed an agreement to manage the property currently trading as Hotel Tahiti SAS.

Once converted, Hilton Tahiti will consist of 171 guest rooms, 29 suites and two royal suites with all accommodations ranging in size from 33-183 square metres. The hotel is currently operating as the Hotel Tahiti SAS, with conversion efforts currently underway.

Guest facilities include an all-day dining restaurant, brasserie, Asian restaurant, terrace bar and casual market place where guests can stock up on snacks. The hotel will feature a day spa, fitness centre, executive lounge, 743 square metres of event space including a ballroom and an outdoor swimming pool overlooking the nearby island of Moorea.

Hilton Tahiti will open to guests in the first half of 2021.

The property is located around three kilometres from Pape’ete Airport and seven kilometres to the island’s main ferry terminal, from where most services to the outer islands depart.

Hilton currently manages two other resorts in the idyllic island nation, with the new Hilton Tahiti joining Hilton Moorea and the Conrad Bora Bora, owned by the Wane Family which also owns the company’s new signing.

Hilton Senior Vice President, Development, Asia and Australasia, Guy Phillips, said he was delighted to launch the new signing as Hilton Tahiti.

“It adds to Hilton’s robust pipeline of more than 95 Hilton Hotels & Resorts in Asia Pacific,” he said.

“The signing highlights how the company continues to capture development opportunities across Asia Pacific, leveraging its resilient business model, powerful commercial engines, and industry-leading brands such as its flagship Hilton Hotels & Resorts.”
