This was our second time to the Kia Ora Sauvage. We stayed 6 nights in mid-January, 2014. Michael and his wife,Tetuanui, were our hosts once again. Once again, it was a wonderful stay. The outside world disappears. You forget about the problems you have as you look into an endless horizon of aqua blues and greens. We had the KOS... More

We booked our travel to French Polynesia with Tahiti Nui Travel back in August. We wanted to go someplace out of the way and secluded, and they recommended Kia Ora and Kia Ora Sauvage on Rangiroa. A very good choice! We traveled to Rangiroa in November 2013. Apart from the long plane ride, it was by far the most unique... More

Paying hefty price tags at Kia Ora Sauvage is not justified. The management should choose which way they want to go. The place is amazing, in its superb isolation, making you feel like Robinson Crusoe : it was a brilliant idea to set up this annex of Kia Ora there. However, the facilities are torn and reminiscent of a slightly... More

Kia Ora sauvage is the ultimate Robinson Crusoe experience. I wrote the same thing about tikehau pearl resort last year, that is because we had not seen this place yet. Sauvage offers secluded beauty on a remote little motu surrounded by similar small islands encompassed by blue lagoons. There are only five huts on the island, each hut is simple,... More

The Sauvage is in a stunningly beautiful setting. Fisher and Lulu were our hosts and provided excellent food and entertainment. Fisher sang and played the ukulele for us several times during our 5 night stay, plus he'd take us out for fresh coconut juice, heart of palm, and little explorations around the motu. He'd normally have taken us for day... More

On this trip to French Polynesia we stayed 3 nights at the Hotel Kia Ora, 4 nights at the Kia Ora Savauge, and 4 nights at the Four Seasons Bora Bora. Our whole trip was wonderful, but it is our experiences at the Savauge we end up talking about the most. Two of the nights we were the only couple... More

My wife and I spent three nights at the Sauvage with our two daughters (ages 13 & 14). This was an excellent break with no electricity and no distractions. Fortunately, there are flush toilets and hot showers. The hosts cook three meals a day and there is a full bar. They offer daily snorkeling or other explorations to adjacent motus.... More

Not much to add to Dave P and Afvf123 reviews, they explain very well the resort but more importantly the feeling of staying there. This hotel provides a unique experience you will remember all your life, the moments spent there will keep in sweetest memories no doubt.

We loved it here, we wanted to get away from the tourist crowd and away from civilization for a few days on our Rangiroa trip and we were so happy we found this place! Scenery: unbelievably beautiful, pristine, untouched . . . like a postcard or a screensaver. Amazing blue water from every window of your bungalow. Accommodations: very nicely... More

The Kia Ora Sauvage is the last true luxury hotel in French Polynesia that holds true to the sauvage feeling. All the rooms are hand crafted out of beautiful wood with palm thatched roofs. They all have an excelent bed (new after the two year renovation), a beautify bathroom, and a little porch. all 5 bungalows look out onto water... More
