MAITAI Sharing Island Warmth

Reopening of the Maitai Hotels in French Polynesia

APRIL 19, 2021 -After three months of closure of French Polynesia's borders because of the increased threat of the new strains of Covid-19 worldwide, we are pleased to announce the reopening of our Maitai Hotels.

With almost no active cases of COVID-19 in French Polynesia and with advanced vaccination in United States, travels from or to the United States will be authorized from May 1st, 2021.
In response to the country’s recent announcement to first re-open “Tahiti and her Islands” to visitors coming from the United States, the Maitai Polynesia Bora Bora and the Maitai Huahine, already open to the domestic market, will be pleased to welcome American travelers again from May 1st, 2021 and the Maitai Rangiroa will resume operations on May 3rd, 2021.

As per last week's official announcement by French Polynesia’s President Mr. Fritch, those travelers coming from the United States will have to undergo a reinforced sanitary process that will be different for vaccinated travelers, for travelers who have already contracted the Covid-19 virus and for unvaccinated and not yet infected travelers.

Other international travelers, including French metropolitan travelers, will still require a strict compelling reason (health, professional, family, return home) to enter French Polynesia and will have, upon arrival, to comply with a compulsory 10-day quarantine in a dedicated isolation center at their own charge or at home.

You may visit the Tahiti Tourisme website ( for more details about French Polynesia's entry requirements.

These measures include but are not limited to:

- Transportation services adhere to social distancing guidelines and sanitation procedures. Wearing a face mask is required by law in all aerial, land and maritime public means of transportation as well as in their waiting areas (for all persons above 11 years old).
- Card or contactless payment is encouraged.
- Guestrooms have been redesigned without decorative pillows, magazines and other non-essential items to allow for greater peace of mind.
- Guestrooms are cleaned on a daily basis, sheets and towels are all changed every five (5) days – or more often upon request.
- Pool furniture is disinfected frequently.
- To ensure a comfortable and safe dining experience, tables and chairs have been removed and spaced throughout the Restaurant and Bar areas to allow for physical distancing.
