Pension Mave Mai
Lonely Planet review
Peacefully reposed over sloping grounds, this guesthouse features eight rooms in a two-storey motel-style building. They’re not terribly Polynesian, but they’re light and well appointed, with private facilities (hot water) and air-con, as well as a kitchenette in two of the rooms. The real draw is the small terrace (or balcony upstairs) overlooking a bay. The place can feel a bit deserted during the day because the owner doesn’t live on the premises. There’s an on-site restaurant (half-board costs 3000 CFP) with ample views. Credit cards are accepted.
Our independent authors have visited Pension Mave Mai and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Nuku Hiva.

Hmm, just recalling the lobster flambéed with whisky makes us drool. The goat with coconut milk is another palate-pleaser in this...
