About Bed & Breakfasts in French Polynesia
Bed and breakfast in French Polynesia does not come in the form of classic B&B or chambre d'hotes. However, this is probably the best way to immerse in the authentic Polynesian everyday life, enjoy its simplicity and the gracious hospitality of local people at its best. Sampling the exotic local cuisine, which invariably includes fresh local produce, is another treat of staying at a B&B, which is not to be missed. Bed and breakfasts in French Polynesia have an average of 10 rooms or bungalows and may be found in private family homes as separate rooms for rent, in small family-run pensions (boarding houses) or in furnished bungalows on the beach or above water bungalows, which recreate the authentic Polynesian style architecture. The largest part of the properties are located on Tahiti, Bora Bora, Moorea and the other islands of the Society, Tuamotu and Marquesas archipelagos.
