Perched on a ridge above the eastern side of Tahauku Harbor, the Hiva Oa Hanakee Lodge offers amazing panoramic views of the island`s wild beauty. On the clearest day, you can see Mount Temetiu, the Bordelais Canal, the small island of Hanakee, the distant volcanic island of Tahuata, and the village of Atuona where Paul Gauguin and poet Jacques Brel are buried.
True to the spirit of the Marquesas Islands, each room at the Hanakee Lodge is decorated with creative Polynesian accents from talented local artisans. The prominent tiki statue in the lobby and other carvings throughout the complex serve as a constant reminder to the cultural significance of your surroundings. This hotel also features a restaurant with an outdoor terrace and infinity pool. There are a number of activities and excursions available, making it easy to explore the island and discover the ancient history of this remote region.
