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

The great strengths of Fare Vaihere are its charming owners, it's location and its great value (by comparison with other Tahiti choices). Phillipe and Corinne go out of their way to please, and you do do as much or as little as you like with no pressure or time constraints. So, if you want, you can just sit by the... More

Me and my husband spent our first third of our honeymoon in Moorea, at Fare Vaihere. It was a perfect decision to "diversify" our French Polynesian trip with a 3 nights stay by Corinne and Phillippe (and not to forget Pao Pao). I do not want to repeat all the advices again, it is a perfect place if you have... More

Philippe and Corinne are running this pension perfectly and they can be proud of the quality of service they provide. We were very well looked after , and they can help you with anything. Of course they propose you a lot of things to do but please do not take this as a hard sale. They are just doing their... More

So much to say - and all positive. The welcome - from the minute you step through the gate, you're made so welcome by Philippe and Corinne, along with the refreshing coconut cocktail. Right through my stay, 12 nights, they were the friendliest hosts and they had just the right balance of care, not too intrusive but ever-helpful. The evening... More

Merci a Philippe et Corrine pour le sejour magnifique. Our arrival was easy; Philippe arranged pick up at the ferry terminal (2000 francs to pay the driver), and we felt very welcomed the minute we got there. Philippe served us a fresh coconut juice while we waited for our room to be ready (we arrived early morning). Our little bungalow... More

We arrived at our accommodation after catching the ferry to Moorea and a local bus to the pension. Philippe welcomed us to the property and we were shown to our beach front room which was only 5 meters from the water. There are four separate bungalows on the property and each is set amongst a lush tropical garden. We had... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Pension Fare Vaihere in Moorea, French Polynesia : the quietude and the beauty of the location brings to the pension Fare Vaihere a resting and warm atmosphere in a preserved environment. The pleasant ambiance, around the four Polynesian style bungalows located in a flowered garden along the lagoon, will help you to relax. Imagine you just get up and enjoy the view of a lagoon so flat that there is no other way than jumping in, to meet colored fish, turtles or rays. Then it's time to go for breakfast, and later for your Atv or whales watching tour or scuba diving lesson ... more   less
