  • Like all shopping in Tahiti, this is no different in as much that the prices are high. We browsed and enjoyed looking at the Tahitian pearl jewellery for example but we didn't stay long and we didn't ...  more »
  • Guy, without variety, unoccupied premises... limited in every sense. Very friendly vendors. If just dried out there, take a trip, don't go particularly.

  • A short walk from the Marché de Papeete (the Papeete Market) and past the Papeete Cathedral is the Vaima Center. This virtually takes up a whole block from Avenue du General de Gaulle opposite McDonald's and Boulevard de la Reine Romare IV on the waterfront side. For a shopping mall it's small by western standards, so much so that I really wouldn't call it a shopping mall but the Vaima Center is the largest building and the largest shopping center in the city of Papeete. It has 60 shops and some 40 businesses. There are food outlets and a number of retail stores, souvenirs shops, clothes and a number of Tahitian pearl jewellery stores. It also has an internet cafe with strong WiFi which can be useful to tourists. It's not much to look at from the back side but it's quite a nice looking complex from the seafront side. Worth a visit.
  • A lot of food options on the ground and few interesting shops. I ll advise yummy one and star light as well. Both very good
  • Nice place

Where to stay in Papeete

The best selection of hotels in Pape'ete is concentrated in the vicinity of the docks--a vibrant area with plenty of nightlife, and in close proximity to the bustling market. Options range from pricey international hotels to very affordable bed and breakfasts and family-run boarding houses. A little farther afield (and much higher up the price range), luxurious five-star resorts offer private beaches, pools, and bungalows above the gently lapping waves of the lagoon.
