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

We stayed at Blue Heaven in April 2011 for our honeymoon for 4 nights and it truly is a slice of rustic paradise. 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 read some reviews here, so when we saw Ellie waiting for us with... 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

My husband and I travelled through many islands in French Polynesia, always staying at pensions. bLUe HEAVEN was the most beautiful, secluded and unique place we found. We choose pensions over hotels and resorts because at a... 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 :)

It's not the Intercontinental and that's why it's FABLOUS! Ellie is AMAZING and so is his cooking, he makes you feel so welcome. The place is trully like a dream come true! 5 rustic bungalows shadded by palm trees with a peak of the ocean with sweet touches like Ellie's original art works and ocean tresures perfectly placed throughout the...

My wife and I made a quick overnight stop at Blue Heaven Island, and were very happy we did. What sold us on making a reservation was the free boat transfer to and from the airport. However, after arriving we had lots of other reasons to be happy. Blue Heaven isn't a 5-star resort with marble bathrooms and big-screen TVs.... More
