We were excited to see all the beautiful trees and flowers and were in love with the room and the outside-openness of the bathroom and kitchen and then after a few hours we were sweaty and sticky and there were several mosquitos. It only got worse at night and we were so hot we did not sleep well. The view... More

I can not compete how other guests described the Rohotu Fare and Nir! I say AMEN! This place reminds me of some part of Bali! The garden forest was so well designed! All the fruit trees, the flowers, statues, etc were all beautiful! Everything in this place is wonderful! Go pack your bags now! I hope we can return soon... More

Where to start? The short version is: you maybe won’t believe what people write because it’s too good to be true. But this place really exists and it IS paradise. But don’t give it away  First we were picked up by Nir who willingly told us the corners of his life after we asked. This is indicative: Nir and... More

Rohotu Fare is the nicest little hotel I have ever been to. Has just three bungalows, each including balcony with marvelous views, the kitchen, little outside garden and shower right next to it, with no roof, which is making a simple shower quite an experience, especially when raining. The owner, Nir, transformed the hotel grounds into enchanting botanic garden, completed... More

Firstly, it has to be said that Nir is an inspiration. He had a vision and succeeded in building the most wonderful lodge on the mountainside. We were privileged to meet such a wonderful, genuine man and would have loved to hear more about his life but regretfully only stayed for 3 nights as part of our silver wedding celebration.... More

Il Rohotu lodge is the best place to be in bora if you are looking for a relaxing place in the nature, where everything is authentic and fantastic. Everything you find inside is unique and the place is magic. Nir is the best host ever, and you feel like in a family. He helps us in anyway and is so... More

My wife and I stayed three nights at the Rohotu Fare Lodge. Nir is an amazing host. The little touches like free wi-fi, complementary rum for our room, trips to the grocery store and laundry service was great. I would find it hard to believe that anywhere else in French Polynesia offers these same services. Nir and his wife love... More

My wife and I stayed for 10 days, and we could not have picked a more beautiful spot to spend our 10th anniversary. The bungalow was romantic, nestled above the lagoon in a beautiful garden of tropical forest. Our view was second to none, we initially considered staying in an over the water bungalow, but we are glad we didn't.... More
