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 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.
