Just returned from BLUE HEAVEN. Stayed for 3 amazing nights with my 2 kids ages 14 and 4. We absolutely loved it!! Felt like we were Robinson Crusoe with all the natural beauty surrounding you. Loved the beautiful sunsets and star gazing on the 2 story deck. We all enjoyed kayaking and snorkeling in the crystal blue waters! I mentioned... More

We just returned from a glorious 5 night stay at this gem of a place in Bora Bora. We had an amazing time. Monique and Eli couldn't have been more pleasant, fun, informative, welcoming and lovely. From the moment they picked us up at the airport, we knew we were in for the stay of a lifetime. Every morning Monique... More

We stayed in Blue Heaven Island for three nights. It is a real paradise. Few bungalows among the coconut trees on a private motu, just in front of a coral garden. The owner is really a funny guy, it was very nice when he had a kind of jam session playing guitar with amother guest at the sunset. I had... More

This is my first review but I felt that Blue Heaven Island warranted me letting you all know how wonderful it was. We stayed there in October for 4 nights, initially we were only meant to stay for 3 nights but extended it to 4 after the first day. I was dubious about staying here as it was near the... More

After staying at the Sofitel private island resort, we thought that staying here might be a a risk but it wasnt, it was the highlight of our honeymoon.From the moment Eli met us at the airport we...

While on a surfing trip to Tahiti last September my boyfriend and I planned a spur of the moment trip to Bora Bora for 3 nights. We could never afford to stay at one of those high end resorts, nor would we really want to, so when we read that blue heaven island was an eco resort, we knew it... More

We spent 14 nights in Blue Heaven Island. The focus of this review is trying to use facts, not trying to bring any emotions into it. PRICE: The price per night for two persons is CFP 24000 / € 201. That does not include any of the meals or transports to the airport from which a ferry leaves to the... More

We spent 3 wonderful days with Elie and Topuna (his nice dog) in this pension, on its wonderful motu, surrounded by a superb coral garden. The bungalow were simple but extremely refined, clean and spacious. It was a pleasure watching Elie while cooking, ad expecially eat its dishes, simple and tasty. We really felt like at home :)
