We were very unlucky during our stay. We went for three nights. First, I must say that the food was incredible and the people were very friendly and tried to help you. In spite of that we had major problems. We arrived on a Saturday Afternoon about 2:00 PM. We were shown to our room and then we were left... More

All of the reviews about Vahine are true, so it does not seem necessary to write another one. The staff are wonderful, the food is amazing and the resort goes out of its way to make sure that each guest is happy. However, I would like to specifically mention to snorkeling since that the primary reason we went to the... More

Elisabeth, Pierre, Roi, Heimata, and the rest of the staff treat you like you're staying at their own home. You'll receive the royal treatment from the time you land at Raiatea, until the moment you're dropped off at the check-in line for your outbound flight. This resort is everything you want to make of it, whether it's lay back and... More

My wife and I have been to Bora Bora previously and wanted to try another island in French Polynesia. We decide on Taha'a. Vahine looked to be an interesting place so we booked a 6 night stay. The resort is small, only 9 rooms, but the service is great. The staff is extremely friendly and are always working to assure... More

Natural lodges on the beach, very comfortable, very clean with all modern amenities. The scenery is wonderful, it's like being lost on an island but with all comfort. Restaurant is awesome and food is high quality.

This was our second year coming back to stay at Vahine Island and the experience was every bit as magical the second time. We flew over from Australia to celebrate my wife's 50th Birthday with our daughter, and my wife's brother and his wife.

Our first time to French Polynesia and this was the first stop. Spent three nights with our wife to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Though the bungalows were not super posh (like the St. Regis in Bora Bora), they were very nice and we had a tremendous, huge, private view of a very colorful lagoon with a serene small island with...

Happened upon Vahine Island while trying to book a week on Bora Bora. Ended up deciding to split the trip between the two islands based on the trip advisor reviews of Vahine. It is as good as it sounds. Hours can be had in the middle of the day without hearing a voice or motorized vehicle of any sort. Instantly... More
