Wow. Vanira Lodge is incredibly charming and beautiful. Each of the nine bungalows seamlessly blend into the lush jungle cliffs they're perched upon, with the jacuzzi bungalows being my favorite. I stayed here on the last leg of my honeymoon in June, and after ten days of resorts, it was a refreshing change to stay at this lovely little pension.... More

Amazing bungalow with private jacuzzi, outside shower, and A/C bedroom. The views were stunning! Staff was very nice. The chef was great, amazing food with a... More

What a wonderful place to unwind. !!! The bunglow was very private, quiet and peaceful. If you want or need a place to unwind, this is it. I would recommend this place to my best friend. Place has a fantastic restaurant for dinner. Fantastic view of sunsets. Place has no TV, but you don't want one here anyways. Has Wifi,... More

A taste of natural Tahiti with comfortable accommodation and above average meals. Vaniera Lodge has an eco friendly mission and local wood and palms are used extensively in the construction. The buildings are integrated into the landscape particularly the two newest units Via Ora and Via Iti that are located downhill at the end of the garden. We stayed in... More

This is such a special spot, the steep drive is certainly worth it for the beautiful views accross the lagoon. Pretty flowers and gorgeous gardens surround the bungalows and pool, best view ever from an out door shower! We stayed in a double with out air con but was perfect. Quirky, wood, stone and turf room surrounded by vivid flowers... More

My husband stayed here for one evening. We booked the Vai Iti room. It was a perfect little spot for a couple looking for privacy. The room was perfect for 2 people. It has a great little air conditioner. The shower and toilet are outside, which is pretty cool. At night the bugs come out so beware if you need... More

In May of this year, we stayed in Maara and had a lovely visit. Unlike any property we have stayed at before, Maara was quite unique in the blend of lodging with nature. The views were amazing, close to Teahupoo, and it does seem that they are continuously trying to improve this property. Having a restaurant on property is handy... More

Take a drive to Tahiti Iti to within couple of miles of the end of Route 1 where you will find this mountainside retreat with a spectacular view of the ocean. Each bungalow is unique and made mostly of local materials. The air conditioned units provide relief from heat, humidity, bugs and noisy roosters in the valley below. They come... More

We weren't happy with our room due to several problems, i.e. plumbing, leaking roof, blown bulbs and annoying flashing light over the bed. None of these problems were addressed for the duration of our stay so we were a bit peeved at lack of concern. There was also no cooperation with helping us to book any activities. We had to...
