Le Meridien Tahiti La Plantation, now known as Tahiti Ia Ora Beach Resort managed by Sofitel.

AccorHotels will once again manage Le Meridien Tahiti, rebranding the resort as Tahiti la Ora Beach Resort managed by Sofitel.

Accor had sold its French Polynesian resort portfolio to the Grey Investment Group in December 2015.

Tahiti la Ora Beach Resort is now the fourth hotel managed by AccorHotels in French Polynesia, following Sofitel Moorea la Ora Beach Resort, Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort and Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island.

“AccorHotels’ history with the country dates back to 1969 and shows our commitment to this amazing destination. The resort has tremendous potential, from its prime location at the edge of the Punaauia Lagoon, to its sprawling grounds and large white sand pool. We plan to bring our know-how and strong service culture, mixing the Polynesian sense of welcome and the French art-de-vivre,” said Gillian Millar, senior vice president operations New Zealand, Fiji and French Polynesia, AccorHotels.
