We spent 5 days at Relais Mahana as a family and had a great time. The location is great, the rooms are very modern and well equipped and the restaurant offers very decent food. Would definitely recommend it for a family holiday in Huahiné.

We spent four nights at the Relais Mahana and absolutely loved it. It may not have all the amenities of a full service resort, but we felt the hotel makes up for it with a gorgeous location, lovely staff, and great activities (especially the fabulous snorkeling 10 meters off the beach). We found Huahine to be a magical place and... More

The breakfastbuffet was not the best. Just a little effort is needed to make the breakfast with more choice and better quality for the croissants. For the rest this hotel is wonderfull and the beach is perfect, be carefull to close all the doors and shower in your bungalow over night.

My husband and I chose this place for our first trip to this island, based on TripAdvisor. Its not the poshy poshy place and strikes me more like a traditional type hotel one might have visited years ago. We are into snorkeling, reading, biking and having great dinners, so this fit us very well. We had the beach bungalow nearest... More

Large bungalows, quiet bay and snorkeling; the recipe for a blissfully relaxing time at this hotel. The staff at the Relais Mahana is welcoming and very accommodating. The only negative point: the restaurant food is pricey for what it is and rarely changes.

Good morning, Ia Orana, Thank you for your message on Tripadvisor I am delighted to read that you've enjoyed the beach and the hotel's lagoon, your bungalow and our staff. For the restaurant, the supplement for pre-paid dinner (around 37 usd / pax / night) gives you the choice between 2 dishes/meal (starter / main course or main/ dessert). Otherwise... More

This hotel was wonderful. We spent the first 5 days of our honeymoon at this hotel and we couldn't have picked out at better place. We could snorkel right off the beach and see some outstanding coral formations and beautiful fish. The staff was genuine and welcome, they could not have been nicer. The food was outstanding. We enjoyed every... More

We loved our stay. They have 32 bungalows on the best beach in Huahine with the reception and restaurant in the middle. On one side they have large bungalows to accommodate families and the other are bungalows for couples. There are two rows that are offset so even if you're in the second row you still have a nice view... More

The bungalow was beautiful, clean, and comfortable. The staff were always friendly, helpful, and went above and beyond for guests. Check-in was easy. A group of us were met at the airport, then when we arrived at Relais Mahana we were comfortably seated and given juice to drink as we filled in our paperwork and were given an orientation to...

First French Polynesian stop on our honeymoon and it was magical. From the flower lei at check in to the shell lei at check out, everything about this hotel oozes the relaxed state of mind you (should) come for.
