Top tips for finding perfect Papeete hotel deals

  • If you’re looking for a cheap hotel in Papeete, you should consider visiting during the low season. You'll find cheaper accommodations in Papeete in November and October.
  • Hotel room prices vary depending on many factors but you’ll most likely find the best hotel deals in Papeete if you stay on a Sunday. The opposite is true for, Tuesday, which is usually the most expensive day.
  • Book at least 90 days before your stay begins to get the best price for your Papeete accommodation.
  • The cheapest 3-star hotel room in Papeete found on KAYAK in the last 2 weeks was $89, while the most expensive was $208.
  • How long should you stay? KAYAK users usually book their accommodation in Papeete for 3 days.
  • If you plan on visiting other nearby islands during your stay in Papeete, look for hotels in the neighbourhood of Fare Ute such as Hotel Sarah Nui, an option that offers an airport shuttle and free parking. This district near the coast is where the local port and ferry services can be found. The Mahana Lodge is another chic and stylish choice that is just a 3min walk from the boats.
  • To stay in a particularly secluded and quiet area, keep your eyes out for a hotel in the neighbourhood of Residence Hamuta. Villa Aute is a popular choice with a lush garden and complimentary self-parking. Although easily accessible from the rest of the town, this neighbourhood is known for being primarily residential, meaning that it is calm and doesn’t have a lot of nightlife.
  • For those who are planning on visiting different monuments and museums during their trip, search for hotels in Papeete that are in Manuhō'ē, a neighbourhood less than a 10min walk from both the Monument aux Morts and the Robert Wan Pearl Museum. The Tara Tahiti Lodge will put you in the centre of this neighbourhood and has a terrace, air conditioning and free breakfast.
  • Hoping to explore some of the region’s luscious green spaces? Choose to stay somewhere close to Pā'ōfa'i Gardens, a well-landscaped park offering many types of trees, trails and fishponds to explore. If you stay at Mahana Lodge Hostel & Backpacker, you’ll have access to the hotel's library as well as free luggage storage.
  • To be in an area that has historic architecture and many unique buildings, select somewhere in Orovini such as the Hotel Tiare Tahiti, which offers rooms with balconies and has a charming on-site cafe. In this neighbourhood you will find a variety of cathedrals and temples that are open to the public.

  • If you would like to be just a short drive away from Fa'a'ā International Airport (PPT), opt for lodging in the eastern part of the city. Both Tahiti Airport Motel and the InterContinental Resort Tahiti are convenient choices that are less than a 5min drive from the airport.

  • For those who are hoping to travel as affordably as possible, look for hotels in Papeete that are inland rather than on the coast, as these tend to be less expensive. Both Pic Rouge and Pater are neighbourhood options that have many hotel choices but are still within walking distance of the ocean.

  • In order to be able to easily walk to several different restaurants, choose to stay in a hotel in the neighbourhood of Taunoa, such as Le Royal Tahitien or the Fare D'hôtes Tutehau. From both of these options you will be able to walk to many restaurants in less than 15min, including popular establishments like Jojo Pizza, Restaurant Linda Papeete, and Feng Shui.

  • If you plan on spending the majority of your trip on the beach, you’ll want to stay in a neighbourhood next to the ocean, such as Taunoa or Patuto’a. Both Hotel Sarah Nui and the Tahiti Nui Hotel are convenient choices that will place you just a 5min walk from the waterfront.
