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. They have paddle canoes and kayaks that you can use any time. Reef sharks circle the island and it's fun to snorkel with them - we fed the sharks daily after lunch. The moon and the stars at night were unforgettable. This was the highlight of our 17 day trip to French Polynesia.

These bungalows have been built in the purest Polynesian tradition while offering high standard amenities. Precious local materials such as ironwood, woven palms, bamboo, coconut, and local handicraft objects have been tastefully integrated in the design of these bungalows. You will be marveled at the sight of the bathroom with its shellfish curtain, coral tiles, stone washbasin all surrounded by live tropical plants.
