My husband and I spent 5 nights at Vahine Island Resort as part of our honeymoon, and honestly,we could not have asked for anything more from a hotel. The location is beautiful, surrounded by coral gardens and marine life. The rooms are simple, clean and private, all equipped with a deck and loungers, from which to watch the sun go... More

We stayed at Vahine Island Resort for our 31st wedding anniversary for a week in July. Everything about the resort is as advertized-- a quiet and private paradise with gorgeous scenery, an exceptional and welcoming staff, great complimentary access to snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, etc., and excellent accommodations, grounds, and top-notch food. We travel quite a bit world-wide for work,... More

First I would make sure Chef Terrance From France is the chef during your stay. We have dined in over 70 countries in some of the finest restaurants from Paris to Las Vegas. We both agreed that Chef Terrances cuisine on this remote island has moved into the number one slot as the best meals we have ever enjoyed .... More

Quite simply the best resort I've ever stayed at. I've done a lot of travel around Southeast Asian luxury resorts, but I've never seen a combination at level of professional service, comfortable modern accommodations, and otherworldly beautiful away-from-it-all location. We were at Vahine for our honeymoon and it was perfect. There are only nine rooms (all occupied for the duration... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in late May to celebrate his birthday and our anniversary. They made our stay very memorable and on our last night we enjoyed dinner on the beach at a private table. Wonderful! Breakfast was delicious and, needless to say, dinners were always superb.

If Vahine Island is not the most peaceful and romantic resort on the planet, it’s certainly the closest that I’ve ever been to. From the moment that Mata greets you at the airport in Raiatea with his covered water taxi until they garland you with a lei made of shells when you depart, you are treated like visiting royalty and/or...
