Hilton has strengthened its presence in French Polynesia with the opening of Hilton Hotel Tahiti in the capital city of Papeete.

Hilton Hotel Tahiti is located two miles from the international airport and offers convenient access to tourist attractions of Papeete and Maritime Port.

The 200-room hotel, which was formally known as Hotel Tahiti in 1960, underwent an extensive renovation programme covering interiors, concepts, and services.

Guest amenities include a free Wi-Fi, a pool, a boutique-style spa, fitness centre and a large ballroom and meeting space suitable for gatherings and events of all sizes.

Dining venues at the property include Moevai, which serves traditional Tahitian fare; Taitea Brasserie caters fish and steak in French style; and The Asian serving Southeast Asian cuisine.

The Heiva Lounge and the Vaipuna poolside bar make up the two bars in the hotel.

Additionally, guests will have access to exclusive digital tools including a Digital Key, which enables Hilton Honors members to check in, choose their room and access their room via Hilton Honors mobile app.

Hilton Hotels & Resorts global brands head Gary Steffen said: “With nearly 20% of Hilton Hotels & Resorts’ pipeline dedicated to growing our resort portfolio, Hilton Hotel Tahiti is an exciting addition to our flagship brand.

“As we anticipate more guests wanting to book travel to dream destinations like Tahiti, this beautiful new resort is a prime example of the premium amenities, exceptional service and exotic locale that our brand is known for throughout the world.”

Earlier this month, Hilton opened its first property in Nagasaki, Japan.
