My wife and I recently stayed here for a few days in early November 2013. If you are looking for a place to get away from it all and in fairly luxurious accomdations in a spectaculer setting then this is it. I am careful when I use the work "fairly luxurious," because the term luxurious generally implies super properties like the Four Seasons, St. Regis, et. al. While the Vanira Lodge does not at first glance appear to have any of the typical amenties that these super hotels have, the Vanira IS luxurious for what it does offer; The rooms are gorgeous; the bed as comfortable as the beds at the St. Regis Bora Bora that followed our stay at the Vanira Lodge. Our kitchen table and chairs were beautiful. The towels and the soaps, lotions, conditioners, gels, blow dryer, nearly as good as the stuff you get at the big super luxe chains. The view from our room was one of the most beautiful we have had in recent memory (that is until I got the St. Regis- of course.)
The room service food is from La Plage de Maui - which is one of the better restaurants in Tahiti from what we could tell and from what we have heard. I wondered if my review is based on my low expectations before I got there, but I spoke with my wife and we both agree that the Vanira Lodge is a very nice, very comfortable accommodation in a beautiful location away from it all.
Yes there are geckos, and little ants, but a cup of coffee in an all wood treehouse overlooking the beaches of Teahupoo quickly overrides any little friends scampering away.
One caveat - We believe you must have a car or motorcycle if staying here.
