When I think back to the 5 Days we stayed at Vahine Island, I just want to go back there soon as possible. Vahine Private Island is a Motu in the North of Tahaa. Picked up with their boat at Raiatea Airport and have a very nice journey around Tahaa. When you come closer to the island, you have the... More

In October/November/2014 we took 3 1/2 weeks to island hop thru Society Islands. We visited Vahine the 1st of November for 4 days. We requested and were lucky to get the overwater bungalow that was the furthest out and the picture shown for Vahine is exactly our view from the deck. What made Vahine unforgettable is they have it all... More

I won't be saying much that everyone else hasn't said, but Vahine Island is an incredible place to stay. We stayed 4 nights just after the new year, and it was wonderful. The management, and all the staff are wonderful and incredibly friendly. The food was the best we had on our 2 week trip throughout French Polynesia, and really... More

This was our fifth visit to Vahine Island & we just keep enjoying it as much if not more each time. It is a small, luxurious, unique & peaceful hotel with just 12 bungalows.

It has all been said before but Vahine Island is very, very special. The combination of a very beautiful location, excellent management (which flows through to wonderful staff and service) and a world class French chef means this is about as good as it gets. We travel a lot and there is still so much to see but this is... More

My wife and I traveled to Vahine Island in December 2014 for four nights as part of our 25th anniversary celebration in French Polynesia. Our stay there was simply perfect, and now we're trying to figure out how to return. The excitement started when we landed at the Raiatea airport and were greeted by Roy, who helped us with our...

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.

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
