We thoroughly enjoyed our four nights at Fare Vai Nui. Raiatea is a more traditional version of French Polynesia (as opposed to Tahiti or Bora Bora), and this hotel enabled us to experience it while living in comfort and dining in style. Our room was simple but felt luxurious; it's in the traditional Polynesian style (and with airconditioning) - see... More

The accommodation is very well maintained and the view of each bungalow is directly to the lagoon. They are directly at the beach and very clean. The best accommodation so far in French Polynesia. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to everyone. A car or scooter to get along is recommended. The owner is very friendly and the food in... More

Jean-Jacques, his wife and all of the staff provide an extremely high level of personal service in every aspect of their wonderful accommodation. From the airport transfer, beautiful bungalows, kayaks (great for visiting the nearby motu to snorkel around the coral), personal car rental (to explore the island), fully stocked bar and wine cellar, outstanding freshly prepared food for breakfast...

Nice location overlooking the motu and reef. the hotel looked good too, but we were sleeping on our boat. We will always plan to go bakc here for a... More

Our travel agent in New Zealand booked us into this hotel when we told him we wanted to go to Raiatea. As it turned out accomodation was hard to find due to a windsurfing event and he came back to us with Fare Vai Nui which was 20kms out of Uturoa. We wondered what we would be going to. However,we...

we were anchored just offshore and came in for dinner on recommendation of our charter company. Did not disappoint - great staff, wonderful wine list, excellent food with lots of variety - fish, boar, pork, beef - something for everyone.!

We'd booked the night after a 10-day sail to stay until the next day's flight to Papeete. The hotel at which we'd booked, Hawaiki Nui, had unexpectedly closed and we were potentially three homeless couples in Raiatea! Our sailboat charter company hastily made reservations for us here at Fare Vai Nui. What a find! Jean-Jacques picked us up at the... More

Incredible culinary experience! 4 foodies from Sydney and Melbourne unanimously voted this family run business Best Restaurant in Raiatea. After anchoring our catamaran and snorkelling over the coral reef we decided to explore the opportunity enjoying a meal at Fare Vai Nui as it had been highly recommended by many business owners in Raiatea. Even though the restaurant was closed... More

I came to Tahiti on a relaxing trip by myself for 8 days. I was not sure what to expect. Raiatea is a quiet island with no resorts, only small hotels. So I looked at the reviews on the few hotels on the island and Fare Vai Nui was rated the best. Every review I read raved about the hospitality... More

We had been sailing so we were not needing a bed but we were looking forward to a night ashore. Jean Jaques welcomed us at the little jetty. Our table was set up and waiting for us. The open terrace provided us with a good view and we noted an enclosed area for more private dinning. Soon after we were... More
