Kia Ora Le Sauvage
For those seeking the ultimate escape from the stresses of the modern world, the Kia Ora Le Sauvage grants visitors a taste of a timeless Eden in a perfectly preserved setting. Located on the remote coconut-fringed islet of Avea Rahi, an hour away by boat from the Hotel Kia Ora on the southernmost edge of Rangiroa, this quiet haven is the perfect place to discover the art of Polynesian living in its purest form. A paradise in miniature, the islet is a lush tropical haven edged in white sand and surrounded by a fringing reef so pristine it has been declared a national marine sanctuary. With five secluded beach bungalows accommodating just 10 guests, here is the opportunity to become fully immersed in the rhythms of nature.
Let go, and experience what it is to be truly unplugged -- no phone, no television, and no electricity – and discover to your pleasant surprise how wonderfully restorative that can be. Daytime invites exploration of the lagoon’s crystal waters and aquatic habitats, a stroll along a picturesque white sand beach, fishing on the flourishing reef, adventuring Robinson-Crusoe style for a picnic on a nearby motu (islet), or simply enjoying the privacy of your bungalow under the gentle caress of the Pacific breezes. By night, light your way by oil lamp, and engage in extreme stargazing under a brilliant and vast starry sky completely unfiltered by surrounding lights. An absolute change of pace and scene, an experience outside of time, Le Sauvage is a sweet exile in the heart of Polynesia.
The small and welcoming yet unobtrusive staff of Le Sauvage is always on hand to fulfill your every wish. Tahitian and international cuisine are served in a charming restaurant, located in an open air beach fare (house) at the resort center. In the evening, enjoy a cocktail in the comfortable lounge area while your hosts entertain you with live Tahitian music and song.
