We have visited this resort every year for the last 3 years. Needless to say, we love Vahine Island Resort. I can only concur with all the positive reviews here; the staff, the facility, the rooms, the water, the food are all excellent. We have traveled to French Polynesia numerous times over 30 years, and this is our favorite place...

We were jet skiing around Tahaa and lunch was set up for us here by the jet ski company. Greatly enjoyed lunch and really liked what we saw. Best food so far in Tahiti! Very nice staff and friendly manager. We would definitely think about staying there when we come back.

We just returned from 2 weeks in Vahine that were remarkable. What made it so was: 1. location--your own south pacific island surrounded by a remarkable pale green lagoon, the sound of surf all night, breathtaking sunsets. Peace. 2. Accommodation: we stayed in a beachside "fare" bungalow that was simple, elegant, very roomy, with hammock and breathtaking views from our...

Vahine Island will provide you with a memorable vacation. It’s the perfect place to go on your honeymoon, a romantic trip or a family vacation that you will remember forever.

Vahine is an off-the-grid Tahitian paradise with attention to detail of a 5-star luxury resort and casual laid-back warmth of staying with friends who happen to prepare Michelin style meals. This review is long (be warned) and overdue as we took our trip at the end of August. I was looking to spend a big birthday unplugged in an overwater...

Well, where should I start? May be by saying that this is the most wonderful place I have ever been on earth. If you are looking for paradise, Vahine Island is the perfect place to go. A small and incredibly beautiful island, just nine Bungalows, three of them being overwater Bungalows which we were lucky enough to stay in. We...

If you're looking for an isolated and beautiful place, do not hesitate to stay at Vahine Island Resort! This was the favorite part of our three-island honeymoon vacation. Upon landing at Raiatea airport, you are greeted by a friendly face and escorted to a comically tiny boat. I was actually a little concerned that we would tip over in the...
