Tahiti Resort Shopping For Supplies is easy. The local village of Patio, on the nearby island of Taha’a, is a 5 minute boat ride across the lagoon from Motu Moie. The local market has a selection of food and necessities, that may be needed quickly. The city of Uturoa, on the nearby island of Raiatea, is about 20 minutes away. Markets here have a larger selection of foods, supplies, and other items that may be needed for a resort. For large quantities of supplies needed for the employees and guests of a Motu Moie Resort, they can be shipped via container to the dock on Taha’a. Here they are unloaded, and transferred to the motu. Papeete has markets and shops offering a wide selection of foods and products from France and around the world, including everything needed for a large resort.
