Sotheby's International Realty - ARUE

The famous “Tahara’a” cliff is now for sale An exceptional 12 hectare estate, located at the top of the Tahara'a Cliffs, the viewpoint offers an spectacular panoramic view of Matavai Bay, and in the distance; Papeete and even the full view of Moorea. The Tahara'a is considered to be the natural border between Mahina and Arue and has for decades housed one of Tahiti's oldest hotels in a beautiful park : the Hotel Tahara'a, which was built in 1967 by Americans that had fallen in love with Tahiti and managed it. It much later changed its name, to become the Hyatt Regency when the famous hotel chain took over the management. A very Rare and Unique Property anchored in Tahiti’s History (Met en magiscules) The geographical location was quickly discovered by the first explorers as an excellent site for an observatory. James Cook nicknamed the cliff "One Tree Hill" – because at the top grew and still stands today an impressive Banyan tree that could be easily spotted from a distance by the early navigators as they approached Matavai Bay and which indicated safe sailing through the treacherous coral reefs channel to safe harbour. This suggests that already in the 18th century, the cliff and tree were well established in the minds and in all the Pacific ocean navigational logs. Perfectly accessible from the circle island road and located just 20 minutes from Tahiti’s International Airport. The Tahara'a Cliff is a unique opportunity to build an ambitious real estate development. PRICE UPON REQUEST
