Super romantic to stay here! Very small and personal. Beautiful location and a lot of activities can be organised. Especially the full day snorkeling tour is great including a visit to a pearl farm. Would definately would love to stay here again!

My wife and I stayed at Vahine as part of our 3 week Honeymoon in FP. It was definitely a highlight of the trip and worth every penny. The Service was outstanding, Even though you are on an island with 9 huts, there is an abundance of activities and things to do. The food is outstanding. I was hesitant at... More

We've spent Christmas at Vahine Island and I've to say it was one of our best stays. When you go there make sure you don't book the overwater bungalow as you have much more privacy at your own beach house. The view to BoraBora is just amazing, the snorkeling at the riff close by is breathtaking. Small and bigger sharks... More

The island was marvelous. I loved the coral gardens and my boyfriend enjoyed the opportunity to wind surf. I think they added a pool since we were there which would be nice. On the days that the weather was bad it would have been nice to swim since on such a small island there is little opportunity for exercise. The... More

It is harder to determine whether the staff or the food is the best part of this resort, or maybe it the incredible views, or the easily found privacy. But I will lean towards the staff. This is a very small resort and the staff you encounter will all warmly approach you, introduce themselves and remember who you are. They... More

Vahine island is one of those places that you will always remember and will become the "happy place" that you dream about when the stress of life and work creeps back after vacation.

Sublime beauty, sensational food, friendly staff - this was the perfect place to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We felt very "at home" in paradise, and have already started dreaming of a return visit. We loved our OWB, but I imagine I could be happy in any of the bungalows. Each meal was a real treat, and the service was lovely.... More
