Dress standard on the island is casual. Cotton and light clothes are recommended all year around. A sweater or light jacket might be useful in the evenings, especially when the wind picks up. A lightweight raincoat can also be handy in case of showers.
There is a post office and ATM machine on at Vaitape. The currency of French Polynesia is the French Pacific Franc.
The hotel has currency exchange facilities for Euro, US$, Yen, AUS$ and NZ$. Major credit cards are accepted, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and JCB.
Tipping is not common in French Polynesian. Smiling and a good attitude towards the local people are much more appreciated. This is the best way to encourage and preserve our tradition of hospitality.
