We stayed in a deluxe bungalow on January 16 - 19. We are from Niverville Canada. We booked online and I cried when we left. It felt like home, food was incredible. They accommodate menu but no need to change. As previous reviews mentioned yogurt is to die for. Roi took my husband spear fishing and it was a blast,... More

But the people on Vahine are too amazing not to sing their praises! We just returned from a weeklong stay that included our wedding in the middle and we couldn't have asked for anything more perfect. From the moment we stepped off the plane everything was seamless. We were welcomed with fresh juice cocktails and a cold towel and delighted... More

We spent 4 nights at Vahine Island, and is by far the best hotel I've stayed. A small and exclusive motu only with the hotel, extensive green area and the blue lagoon beyond belief. The sun sets with Bora Bora at the end, which was amazing because it was our next destination in Polynesia! The service was excellent and all... More

My wife and I spent 4 days of our honeymoon here in May 2015 and had an absolutely amazing time. We also went to the Four Seasons in Bora Bora, and in hindsight I wish we had just stayed at Vahine island the whole time. The property itself is stunning and has so much charm and character that no chain... More

My wife and I just returned from our Honeymoon and we stayed 5 nights at Vahine in one of their beach bungalows. It is a small hotel, only 9 rooms, but the staff is amazing and really know what they're doing. The food was some of the best food we've ever eaten! The daily activities that they have scheduled for... More

We arrived a little fraught because Air Tahiti had managed to leave one of our bags at Papeete. The hotel manager took the situation in hand and by dinner time the errant bag appeared on a boat out of the darkness. This was our first example of the friendly and efficient service at Vahine. The hotel boasts just 9 rooms... More

Somebody mentioned VIR being the No. 1 escape destination in the world. We get it! Everything perfect, from the bungalow, to the food, the staff, the activities, the pace. Terence and his team are 11-on-a-10-scale pleasant and it killed us to have to move on. We'll be back!

This hotel truly is a slice of heaven on earth! And I say this even though we were there during some really freakishly bad weather (very high winds, keeping anyone from swimming and requiring wool blankets on the beds for the first two nights.)

Tell me, where else on the planet can you have an island in Paradise almost to yourself that comes with the services of a French gourmet chef and a two hole golf course?! No streets, no cars, no crowds. The bungalows at the water' sedge are fabulous. You don't even get a key to lock them. No need for that.... More
