Meet Motu Teta, A Private Island In Tahiti

April 6, 2013 -

In the middle of the South Pacific Ocean, in the Atoll of Rangiroa, Tahiti, there is a tropical island waiting to be discovered. Very few places are left on earth where one can inhabit their own private island paradise with no other tourists within miles.

This 9 acre (3.8ha) “dream island” is unique in that it offers guests complete isolation and relaxation, in an all-inclusive, resort-style setting.

Motu Teta’s upscale luxury accommodations provide lodging for up to 6 adults or up to 10 people including children, creating an ideal location for a couple, group, or family vacation. Both the main villa and guest residence were constructed in a classically Tahitian style – rich hardwoods, airy open beams, and open wooden shutter windows to enjoy the South Pacific breezes. Even though Motu Teta can distance you from civilization, and the cares of urban life, modern conveniences such as flat screen TVs, an extensive DVD and CD collection as well as MP3 docking stations are available.

Motu Teta’s onsite, expert chef prepares all French/Tahitian style cuisine during a vacation to the island, or can accommodate special meal requests made prior to guest’s arrival. Drinks, including champagne, fine selection of wine, beer, and a well-stocked bar are all included.

Although Motu Teta is ideal for relaxation, it also offers an endless supply of activities and excursions. At Motu Teta there are a unique variety of on-and-off island activities–snorkeling, fishing, boating, sailing, kayaking and shark feeding, just to name a few. Excursion guides are available at the visitor’s convenience to help guide guests on exciting expeditions of their choice, and again – are all included.

At Motu Teta you are able to escape reality and explore fantasy with the beauty and unique nature of the location. Guests can expect nothing less than extraordinary service and attention to detail from their staff, with traditional Tahitian flair. Motu Teta is a true hidden treasure that travelers from all around the world must discover.

A vacation to Motu Teta is priced individually, based on the total number of adult guests and length of stay. Prices can range from approximately €533 per adult, to €1,300 per adult. For more island information or to schedule your vacation, please visit
