Vahine Island Resort was everything we had hoped for and more! Gorgeous setting, friendly and helpful staff, and fantastic food. We stayed in a beach bungalow that was very open with sliding doors on two sides. We loved the feeling of being in our own little fare on our own private island. We snorkeled, swam, fished, and RELAXED. One evening... More

If you are looking for something different from the typical resort this is for your. This micro island oozes charm, romance, seclusion and privacy in huge doses with only nine rooms available. It is the most wonderfully intimate hotel I have been to. It is rustic Polynesian in style yet hugely sophisticated in its service. I stayed in a wonderful... More

I recently spent four wonderful nights at Vahine Island. I struggled with the decision to stay here this trip as I've really enjoyed Le Tahaa during previous stays. Well, I'm not sorry. The food in particular has lived up to the billing. We were on a half board basis and I found that breakfast (omelets, pastry, fruit, homemade vanilla yogurt)... More

My husband and I spent nine days enjoying this beautiful spot. Four nights in the overwater bungalow and four nights on the beach. Everything was amazing from the lodging to the meals to the service. The snorkeling off the beach was fantastic. All in all we couldn't have imagined a more romantic way to spend our anniversary.

We spent 5 nights on the private island and concluded that it was one of the best vacations we ever had (we visited Moorea, Bora Bora, several times Caribbean, Adriatic Sea etc.). Starting with bungalows: while French Polynesia is notoriously famous because of over-water bungalows, based on TripAdvisor reviews, we chose beach suite. During the stay we thanked several times...

Recently, there have been many accurate reviews for Vahine Island - none that I can contest. Vahine Island fit the bill for our winter vacation. We want sun, snorkeling from shore, good food, a chance to experience the culture and a clean room with a comfy bed. Vahine Island was that and so much more. Stress and the drivel of... More
