This was a piece of paradise. The bungalows were lovely and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We loved our over-water bungalows, as we could go back and feed the fish (including shark) from our rooms. The food was of an incredibly high standard and was fantastic. If you did not like something on the menu they were... More

If you are looking for seclusion this is the place to be. My husband and I couldn't wait to come and stay for five days for our honeymoon. There were probably a max of 16 people on the island and the staff is amazing. They are very nice and accommodating. The food is very good and the coconut bread is... More

Vahine Island Resort was paradise in every possible way. I cannot imagine finding a better place to honeymoon anywhere around the world. Located on a private island with only 9 total bungalows, there are never more than 18 guests at the resort. This makes it an absolutely perfect honeymoon destination. The rooms are nice, the food was amazing, and the... More

If there is a pardise, this is it !!! We spent 7 nights and our 25h Anniversary here in an over-water bungalow. The room, patio, food, and especially the service was amazing. If you can, take advantage of the over water bugalows. Walking down to the water to cool off was amazing. I cried when I left because of the... More

Come here if you want amazingly friendly staff, a fantastically well run hotel, great food, great rooms and a very relaxing time. I'd chose here all day long over the large resort hotels. The manageress is so helpful, as are all the staff. The food is great and fresh. It is very relaxed to stay in, but very professionally managed.
