We support the sustainable development in French Polynesia.
Our desire is to open hotels in unspoilt, secluded islands depends on our ability to build structures which respect their natural environment, encourage local employment and ensure the present and future well-being of the Polynesian people.
For years, our teams have been making every effort daily to save water, choose new energy sources, use natural and biodegradable cleaning products, recycle waste and treat waste water.
In fulfilling our social and environmental responsibilities, we work side by side with Polynesian associations and businesses who share our aims.


1. To’A Nui initiative: the coral nursery
In 2001, we have been working with a Polynesian company, Espace Bleu, on the first project on such a scale in French Polynesia: the creation of a coral nursery at the Hotel Manava Beach Resort & Spa Moorea.

In conjunction with the above initiatives the Manava Beach Resort Moorea collaborated in 2001 with a marine biologist to install 30 artificial reefs within the lagoon of the hotel under the overwater bungalows. The lagoon of the hotel enables distressed coral colonies to regenerate in perfect ecological conditions. This project has been successfully completed in 2005 and in 2006 due to the tranquil conditions for the fish and coral, combined with the scientific research, environmental care and educational activities. Some educative excursion program linked to the French Polynesian lagoon discovery are offered to our clientele and to the local people to educate them to the concept of “eco-citizen”.


2. TeHonu Tea – partnership with South Pacific Management, Hotels, Resorts & Spa
The situation of turtles in French Polynesia is extremely worrying. All observations have shown that their stock has reduced dramatically over these last years. For example, on Scilly atoll (Manuae), classified as a « complete reserve » and a major egg laying site for a few decades, the number of green turtle females coming to nest had gone down by more than 90% at the beginning of the 90’s. To summarize the situation of turtles in French Polynesia:

  • Scientific data are insufficient: we have no precise information on the state of turtle stocks in French Polynesia.
  • Nevertheless, all indicators point to an alarming drop: the situation is critical.
  • Regulations are not respected and there is certainly a black market.
  • Regulations are very strict in French Polynesia: in addition to being protected internationally by CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora), turtles are fully protected under Territorial regulations. Unfortunately given the extent of the Territory, surveillance is particularly difficult.


The Honu Tea Association

This Polynesian NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) is a not-for-profit entity set up in 2001. It is run by volunteers and specialists in maritime and marine animal matters.
Te Honu Tea’s goals are:

  • To protect laying sites
  • To make the public and political decision-makers aware of and inform them of the threat to turtles
  • To participate in the protection of turtles at a global level, linking up with international associations and organizations
  • To gather scientific information on turtles in French Polynesia
  • To collect and care for wounded turtles

Like To’A Nui initiative, South Pacific Management Hotels, Resorts & Spa will offer in its hotels soon and more particularly at le Tikehau Pearl Beach Resort some educative excursion programs linked to the turtles to educate international and local clients.


3. Local Employment
SPM employs local personnel from each of the islands where it is located and actively participates in the development of the island’s economy.  Additionally, all the hotels are constructed with local materials such as exotic woods, bamboo and pandanus.


4. Durable goods development
SPM has set the following objectives as priorities: saving rain water, solar water heating, water and paper recycling, the use of ecologically-friendly products and electric cars.


5. New energy for tomorrow
SPM is actively searching for ways to implement photovoltaic and wind energy, paper liners for trash cans, development of coral, as well as plant nurseries and orchards.
