MANAVA SUITE RESORT
My first stop was the Manava Suite Resort Tahiti. It's a 15-minute ride from the airport without traffic. Yes, it's sad but true: Tahiti has rush-hour traffic too. (But it's nothing like L.A.'s.) The hotel is four stars and has a Tahitian-chic feel. You definitely won't want to spend more than a night here if you are on vacation, but if you're in Papeete for work it would be quite nice long-term. They have 121 guest rooms on three floors.



INSIDE MY ROOM
The rooms are so modern that you don't even need to stick your card key into the door--just wave it in front of the keypad and presto. That kind of bummed me out, because that's the opposite of how I imagine Tahiti to be. But the room interiors are designed by Tahitian architect/designer Bruno Hervochon, and they have authentic Polynesian decor as well as contemporary amenities like a flat-screen TV, kitchenette, air-conditioning, and Internet (it's free and they provide the Ethernet cord since it's not Wi-Fi). I enjoyed the balcony and the bathroom but didn't care for the uncomfortably high toilet, which is in its own private closet-like room. I'm six feet tall and my feet were practically dangling, that's how high it is. Other resort features include two bars (get their signature nonalcoholic drink--banana, pear, and caramel), a restaurant, a fitness center, spa, two free computers, and the island's largest infinity swimming pool--it faces the lagoon and nearby island of Moorea.
