We stayed at Vahine for 3 days at the end of July, 2015. We absolutely loved this little paradise! Vahine is really special - it's not like any other place we've stayed at. What makes Vahine resort so special is the unique combination of boutique luxury, personal attention and superb food on the one hand, and truly unique cultural and... More

We have traveled to private islands and exclusive resorts in the Caribbean and Fiji. If you want constant activity and nightlife, this is not the place for you. If you want a private, beautiful resort with comfortable bungalows furnished in the Tahitian style with natural materials and good food, beautifully presented, you will not be disappointed. My husband, who is... More

First off, we travel quite a bit (all over the world) and I normally do not write things about resorts etc, for I feel others pretty much sum up what I would write. However this time I thought I would actually post something for I cannot say enough good things about Vahine Island Resort. I planned this trip for my... More

My husband and I spent 5 nights at Vahine Island Resort as part of our honeymoon, and honestly,we could not have asked for anything more from a hotel. The location is beautiful, surrounded by coral gardens and marine life. The rooms are simple, clean and private, all equipped with a deck and loungers, from which to watch the sun go... More

We stayed at Vahine Island Resort for our 31st wedding anniversary for a week in July. Everything about the resort is as advertized-- a quiet and private paradise with gorgeous scenery, an exceptional and welcoming staff, great complimentary access to snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, etc., and excellent accommodations, grounds, and top-notch food. We travel quite a bit world-wide for work,... More

First I would make sure Chef Terrance From France is the chef during your stay. We have dined in over 70 countries in some of the finest restaurants from Paris to Las Vegas. We both agreed that Chef Terrances cuisine on this remote island has moved into the number one slot as the best meals we have ever enjoyed .... More

Quite simply the best resort I've ever stayed at. I've done a lot of travel around Southeast Asian luxury resorts, but I've never seen a combination at level of professional service, comfortable modern accommodations, and otherworldly beautiful away-from-it-all location. We were at Vahine for our honeymoon and it was perfect. There are only nine rooms (all occupied for the duration... More
