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.

Vahine Island is the true essence of paradise.

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

My husband and I and our two grown daughters just returned from 4 night stay at Vahine followed by a 7 night Wind Star sailing yacht cruise. Two quite different ways to experience Fr Polynesia, both great. We think that Vahine edged out the cruise very slightly.

We stayed at Vahine Island for four nights at the end of our honeymoon in FP - it was simply perfect. We don't want to repeat everything everyone else says about Vahine Island, but the setting, the room, the food, the service, the staff, and the overall experience was faultless.
