Snorkelling - Ninamu Resort, Tikehau, Tahiti

Close to the Tikehau airport sits a private islet where "the Motu Ninamu" awaits international visitors. Nestled between the lagoon and the ocean, the deluxe guest house is proud to greet you in one of its 8 local Fare entirely made of natural materials (coral walls & coconut palm roofs), offering visitors comfort & intimacy in a natural environment. Motu Ninamu (named after the color of the surrounding lagoon) is the perfect place of vacancy for wildlife lovers wishing to spend some relaxing & serein moments surrounded by Mother Nature. Nautical devotees such as surfers, divers, kite surfers and fishermen will find real pleasure in spending time with Chris (property-owner & billabong pro operation staff) and his team who will be guiding them throughout the best parts of the Tikehau Lagoon.

Every evening, guests are then welcome to join a warm and friendly ambiance within the comfy lounge/bar waiting for dinner. Supper is mainly composed of lagoon or deep sea fish, freshly caught, and always served by Greta (Chris's spouse) and her team. The Motu Ninamu mainly runs with solar energy, which is the key element to Eco-lodge visitors.

Diving and Snorkelling

For seasoned vets and first timers alike, Ninamu Resort offers unparalleled snorkeling experiences. Your first peek under water at Ninamu Resort is an unforgettable experience. The clarity of of the water, and the unimaginable abundance of life is almost unbelievable. The Tuamotu atolls are world renowned for their undersea life. On a visit in 1987, Jacques Cousteau’s research group made a study of Tikehau’s lagoon and discovered that it contains a greater variety of fish species than any other place in French Polynesia.

Huge schools colorful of fish, and intricately sculpted coral heads wait for you just off our beach. Swimming with manta rays, sea turtles, and even dolphins are just a short boat ride away.

SCUBA diving in Tikehau is world class. While Ninamu Resort does not offer SCUBA services, guests can book with Tikehau Diving. Tikehau Diving picks up guests directly from Ninamu Resort and ferries to the various dive sites around the atoll.
