Fodor's Expert Review Faa'a

Tahiti Nui Town/Village

Pronounced Fa-ah-ah, this town is a commune (municipality area) of greater Pape'ete and houses the international and domestic airport, the InterContinental Tahiti resort, along with a Faa'a town hall built in Polynesian style. The University of Tahiti sits on the side of the mountain above the town. It's more heavily populated that Pape'ete itself, although you won't see much of the place as your airport transfer whisks you along the highway to your resort.
