Our bungalow (Maraa) was great, the bathroom is very well made and the view from the lounge/kitchen is breathtaking. However be aware that you will need a car to be able to go around if you don't want to spend your day on a surf board. Christiane who prepares the breakfast has been fantastic and it was a pleasure to...

This hotel is about an hour and a half from Papeete by car that can be arranged by the hotel. We stayed in the Vai Ora bungalow and it was nice for what it is. It is a jungle-style place with amazing views down the mountain (hill?). The room wasn't as clean as I like (bugs, gritty feeling floor), but...

We had about 36 hours on Tahiti before our flight home. My husband is a surfer and loves to watch the Billabong Pro - so I looked up how far Teahupoo was from the airport. 1 hour and 26 mintues! I looked around and found Vanira Lodge - Wow! Definitely one of the coolest places we stayed! Not for everyone...

We knew we would have a ton of water time on our trip to Tahiti so we wanted to spend a couple of nights in a different type of resort, off the beaten path. Vanira Lodge was perfect. The website photos don't do it justice. The bungalows are gorgeous and each has its own fantastic view. The room was spotlessly...

We stayed in Ofai Bungalow. Amazing view, personal terrace with lounge chairs, gorgeous beds. The Bungalow is open to the outside world for a feeling of being part of the natural setting. Restaurant average but there are good roulettes at Teahupoo and we bought groceries from the Carrefour at the isthmus. Tip: clean up after every snack or you will...

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....

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.

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...

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...
