Located in the small part of Huahine, Relais Mahana is a beautiful and relaxed place to stay! Our bungalow was looking directly to the sea with 10 meters of nice and clean beach dividing us. Always fresh food for lunch and dinner, good breakfast.

Rooms are nice, people is nice, food is good, but what makes the place so special is the island: one of the most beautiful in the very beautiful French Polinesya. Very peacefull and quite, but with colours and bays really amazing. In this island, Relais Mahana is located in probably the best beach of the island, and you can enjoy... More

Relais Mahana was a beautiful hotel on a beautiful island. The beach was small, peaceful, well shaded and beautiful. The snorkeling off of the resort beach is great! Lots of corals, hundreds of fish, definitely a highlight. The staff at the resort is also very friendly and a treat to interact with. All that said, it is a remote resort.... More

We stayed at this property with my wife and another couple of friends for our honeymoon, we were extremely impressed by the natural color of the place, a few days later we went to Moorea at a resort we have not experienced the same emotions of Relais Mahana like I was in a real corner of paradise .... amazing !!

Huahine is an amazing island and the Relais Mahana a wonderful place to stay in order to discover this wild island ... Full of fruits and wonderful marine life. Restaurant serves an amazing lagoon fish carpaccio which followed by a moon fish is marvelous. Team is exceptionally friendly. If you want to do an island tour, ask for Romain who... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful. We turned in a load of laundry and for $26 picked it up folded the next morning. The service is slow for dinner and lunch but food good. The Asian Poisson Cru was my favorite; presentation of tropical cocktails quintessential; and free wifi fabulous!

After a rather depressing arrival full of bureaucratic paperwork but no welcome drink or cold towel and a bad dinner, things picked up. Perhaps we were also coming down from a small-island high induced by Vahine and Ninamu and the luxury of the Kia Ora on Rangiroa and the Sofitel Private Island on Bora Bora. In any event, the island... More

If you are lucky enough to get to Huahine, you must stay here. Food is amazing. They will cook your fish if you catch some. Staff wonderful, Matania helped us through all sorts of bookings, changes, flights, etc. The waters are amazing and very safe for snorkeling. Our cottage had an indoor/outdoor shower...close the door..or not. EuropeCar has an agent... More

This place is perfect if you want; great, local hospitality, turquoise lagoons, huts on the beach and peace. My husband and I stayed there for 9 beautiful, sunny days. Free kayak and paddle board rentals anytime of the day was wonderful. The island is beautiful and very local, don't expect 5 star hotel chains and restaurants, expect local friendly people... More

What an amazing place. Relais Mahana is small, maybe only 20-30 rooms, all huts on the beach. The opposite of crowded, it was quiet and beautiful. It was the absolute perfect place for total relaxation. Staff was always very friendly and helpful, food is good, location is beyond perfect.
