We stayed in Villa 2 for 12 nights. Stunning room, awesome facilities - kitchenette which was well equipped if you wanted to bring back food to make snacks etc. The King Size bed was amazingly comfortable. Loved the bathroom - I want to remodel mine just like it. The shower is a great size. We loved the louvre windows around... More

We stayed at little poly for 5 nights in mid-December for our Honeymoon and it was a trip to remember!

Absolutely love this resort. Friendly relaxed private and beyond beautiful! The whole Island is stunning. It is a little pricey but well worth it for your own slice of beach and outdoor bath. The food could be better but it was fresh and as far as Island style goes it was pretty good :) rooms were tidy and clean and... More

The team at Little Poly (as it is known) know a lot about great service and it really makes the stay one to remember for all the right reasons. This is a small boutique resort, no kids, maybe 16 units in total with a central office/bar/restaurant area facing on to an infinity pool overlooking the beach. We were in one... More

This amazing resort exceeded our expectations on every level. Our over beach bungalow (9) was incredible; clean, spacious, sunny and private. We dined several times at the Restuarant, breakfast every morning, twice for lunch and 3 times for dinner. We were blown away by the quality of the food. Everything was fresh and delicious!!!

The Little Poly is a small boutique resort on what I feel is the best beach on the island. This is an adults only resort so it is quiet, and sophisticated. This is a fantastic resort for newly weds or any couple. This resort has many Polynesian details many of us just don't know about. Many people may not realize... More
