Discreet but excellent service ( and staff) in a Gilligan's Island style paradise. Beautiful location, great snorkelling and delicious food. A good way to either end or begin a trip to Tahiti; to chill, read and swim. 4 days was the right period for us, allowing us to snorkel, kayak, paddle board and relax and recharge our batteries to return...

We stayed at Vahine for 4 nights on our honeymoon in August 2013 and we only wish we had stayed longer. I cannot find a bad word to say about the hotel, the food or its staff. I would particulary like to mention how wonderful the staff are, they literally could not do enough for you and really made you... More

A very quite and private place. Max capacity of 20 tourists and 15 personnel. Food was fantastic and all personnel very friendly and helpful. Many free sport activities, free internet and water in mini-bar. For sure will be back again in the fantastic location.

Ia ora na, We were looking for a place to just get away, relax, enjoy the sun, and throw away the schedules, we couldn't have found a better spot. If that is what you are looking for, then this is the place for you. If you want a resort to show off your new shoes, this is NOT the place... More

When I think back to the 5 Days we stayed at Vahine Island, I just want to go back there soon as possible. Vahine Private Island is a Motu in the North of Tahaa. Picked up with their boat at Raiatea Airport and have a very nice journey around Tahaa. When you come closer to the island, you have the... More

In October/November/2014 we took 3 1/2 weeks to island hop thru Society Islands. We visited Vahine the 1st of November for 4 days. We requested and were lucky to get the overwater bungalow that was the furthest out and the picture shown for Vahine is exactly our view from the deck. What made Vahine unforgettable is they have it all... More

It has all been said before but Vahine Island is very, very special. The combination of a very beautiful location, excellent management (which flows through to wonderful staff and service) and a world class French chef means this is about as good as it gets. We travel a lot and there is still so much to see but this is... More
