Huahine was our favorite island. We also went to Tahiti, Moorea and Bora, Bora. Custom Tahiti Travel met us at all the airports and I would highly recommend them for your vacation to Tahiti. I also reviewed the InterContinental Resorts in Tahiti, Moorea and Bora, Bora Le Moana. I met to also say in those reviews to go through Custom... More

Relais Mahana turned out to be just what we had hoped for - a beautiful tropical island (Huahine), a lovely beach in a turquoise lagoon, a house beside the beach, as well as truly delightful staff that were a pleasure to be around. Our family spent 4 nights there and we loved every minute of our stay. Thanks to the... More

Resort with a family feeling Relais Mahana is a charming and friendly resort – not too big, not too fancy, just really comfortable and unpretentious. Most of the tourists staying there are French, which made it fun for us, since we speak French – but the staff does speak English as well. The bungalows are a nice size and well... More

You feel like one of the family at this small hotel. I stayed here for 1 night in one of the beachfront bungalows. The resort is not sophisticated, but it is Polynesian and that is exactly what you come to Huahine for. The beach is really lovely and calm, great for paddleboarding. I loved the bathroom area with the little... More

18 years ago, we visited this resort and since it rained almost non-stop during our short visit which didn’t allow for us to do much then, we always promised ourselves we would one day return. I’m happy to say that we did and we really enjoyed our overall experience and will not wait another 18 years to return again. The... More

It was just perfect. Not too big and touristic, and thus relaxing and quite. The bungalow was just beautiful and by the beach. The food was like mamma's. And the staff was extremely nice and helpful. They also helped organize nice boat-tours and and other island tours. It is a family business and thus run with personal touch and particular... More

We spent 4 days in the last August. Is a beatiful hotel with good views but the location is a little far to the town. very recomended!! Lovely staff, and great activities (especially the fabulous snorkeling 10 meters off the beach). We found Huahine to be a magical place and the Relais Mahana was a wonderful way to experience it.

Spent 3 days there at the end of august. This is a beautiful property with nice bungalows. We stayed in a deluxe beach bungalow which was great. Good size, fridge, comfy bed, tropical (open) shower and terrific view. However the beach in front of the bungalow was the hotel beach meaning we had a lot of people sitting just inches... More

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).
