About 200 miles north by northeast of the main French Polynesia island of Tahiti lies the Tikehau Atoll, a spectacular crown of coral and sand 16 miles long and 14 miles wide. The atoll is a thin white line of coral, sand and palm tree, no more than half a mile wide, but it encircles a lagoon of pristine, otherworldly beauty – a place Jacques Cousteau visited in 1987 and found a greater variety of fish species than any other location in French Polynesia.
Hidden away on a private island in the southwest corner of the atoll, Ninamu (Nee-Nah-Moo) Resort is a luxury minded outdoor enthusiasts’ retreat. We cater to surfers, divers, fishermen, kite surfers, paddle boarders or anyone who loves cruising in tropical waters that are bursting with life and energy. Everyone should experience a pristine atoll in the middle of the South Pacific once in their life.

We have just returned from a two-week trip to French Polynesia (Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, Tikehau) and the four nights in Ninamu were undoubtedly the highlight. With three kids age 10, 8 and 5 the motu was perfect as they had the freedom to run...More
We just returned from a five night visit to Ninamu and had a wonderful experience. We did a buy-out of the property for a birthday celebration and it was truly the perfect choice. Chris and Greta are the consummate hosts...and the service from the staff...More
My expectations of Ninamu were very high, and yet they were still exceeded. My husband and I stayed there in early November for 4 nights and the whole experience was seamless, exhilarating, and relaxing. We loved the feel of the resort and enjoyed getting to...More
Ninamu was the highlight of our honeymoon to French Polynesia. We found it originally in the Lonely Planet, then after looking on Tripadvisor knew it was for us. No Pool, no aircon, limited internet, bungalows that are created out of drift wood and coral and...More
