If you want to be anonymous in a big resort with frigid air conditioning and ordinary food, Fare Vaihere is not for you. However, if you want an authentic French Polynesian experience and fantastic French/Polynesian fusion meals, you can't go wrong. This intimate resort treats you like long-lost family. Host Phillipe not only serves breakfast and dinner, cooked by his... More

A quite location on Opunohu Bay, excellent food, spotless bungalows (with a fridge!) and well cared for property... we were quite pleased and would not hesitate to recommend Fare Viahere. Our host, Philippe, was a great help - beginning with his responsiveness to my initial inquiries, arranging airport transport, booking activities, car rental, restaurants...he made everything easy - about as...

We absolutely loved our stay here. The location is beautiful and the cabins are perfect for this kind of holiday - relaxed but spotlessly clean and very comfortable. I booked directly with Phillipe and really appreciated the friendly and professional way this was managed. The wonderful snorkeling from the jetty and kayaking in the bay were added treats here.

Corrine and Phillipe are the factors that set Fare Vaihere apart from so many similar other places. Not that what they offer is in any way diminished, but they are just such exceptional hosts that you can't feel anything but privileged by staying there. The bungalows are clean, comfortable and completely adequate, the setting, both the garden and the beach... More

What a great spot! Our stand-alone cabin was a comfortable size, brightly decorated, and clean. The meals we had there were excellent, including local fish and fruit. Having the kayaks, bikes, snorkel gear and WiFi included in the price added to the excellent value. The location on Moorea was an excellent quiet base to explore from. Phillipe and Corinne were...

However our flight got cancelled and we had to stay in LA for two nights till we could get on next flight . As a consequence we cancelled 3 days prior to our booking . The owners were not... More

What can be added to previous glowing reviews? My husband and I stayed for 4 nights and it was heavenly. There was no need to eat anywhere else though you have that option if you want. Snorkelling at the end of the jetty revealed many colourful fish and there was a beach just 100 m away if you wanted to... More

Our stay at Fare Vaihere was amazing. The reviews do not do the inn or the hosts complete justice. Philippe and Corinne are incredible caring, thoughtful and professional hosts. They are attentive to their guests needs and are more than willing to make recommendations on activities, dining and coordinate your stay on Moorea. The Fare Vaihere is in a perfect... More

Fare Vaihere is located in one of the most beautiful areas of the island on Opunohu Bay. We stayed in the waterfront bungalow which was decorated with flowers, very clean and peaceful. Philippe is an excellent and professional host. He prepared a gourmet dinner for us, which was the best dinner we had on the island! The breakfasts were delicious... More

My nephew and I recently returned from a 3-night stay at Fare Vaihere. What a lucky find! We were fortunate enough to get the waterfront bungalow which was comfortable and just steps away from the water. Our host, Philippe, was extremely helpful in making suggestions and arranging transportation. He is also an excellent chef so do yourself a favor and... More
