I don't even know the words to do it justice. We were there for four nights on our honeymoon. It was even more amazing than we could have ever dreamed. We stayed in an overwater bungalow and the water was such an intoxicating color of blue and filled with colorful fish. The view from our porch was so amazing we...

This is what Polynesia should be! Secluded, Private, Luxurious, etc. (I could go on and on) The Hotel's accommodations are extraordinary, the staff stupendous, and the location is unforgettable. You would be foolish if you missed the chance to stay here. We stayed for five days then went to the Four Seasons in Bora Bora and wanted to come back...

We went to Vahine for 9 nights as first leg of our honeymoon and set a very high standard for the rest of our stay in Polynesia, wonderful hotel, the island is so beautifully kept and unspoilt at the same time, the views are incredible, Bora Bora's mountain one side, the open ocean, the blue lagoon! Food was spectacular but...

Vahine Island provides the experience that everyone who goes to French Polynesia expects. A small property on its own motu (island) with nine rooms, three overwater bungalows, and a staff that is beyond belief. Since you are stuck with all meals at the resort (it's the only structure on the small motu), it's fortunate that those meals are superb, as...

Vahine Island (VI) is everything my wife and I wanted from a luxury resort in the Society Islands. Untouched beauty: The resort is positioned perfectly on the lagoon of Ta'haa, the motu is small enough to be walkable, and large enough to provide privacy. The hotel and grounds are wonderfully kept. The negative reviews from previous years had to have...

My husband and I spent the second leg of our honeymoon at Vahine Island resort and loved every minute of it. We stayed in an adorable beach bungalow. It's a tiny resort, but incredibly charming and peaceful. The staff is especially helpful and kind. There were plenty of things to keep us busy during the days - we windsurfed, kayaked,...

My husband and i stayed in an over water bungalow at Vahine Island for 3 nights for our honeymoon and it was pure paradise.

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon and were not disappointed. It really is a beautiful place to get away from the rest of the world and just relax and eat wonderful food. We had a beach bungalow and were not disappointed, it was very private and was well looked after. After 3 nights we moved...

My wife and I recently stayed for 4 nights at Vahine Island and let me tell you that it lives up to the hype. The place is wonderful! As someone else mentioned in their review, it did feel like you were staying at someone's estate rather than a resort. Carl and Carol (managers) plus some of their staff greeted us...

My wife and I visited the Vahine Island Resort April 16-20, taking advantage of the stay4-pay3 offer. It was part of our first trip to French Polynesia (we had stayed 5 nights on Moorea before transferring here). Our trip to FP was "out of this world" and perhaps a once-in-a-lifetime experience (although we hope it can be repeated some day)....
