Ninamu is a castaway eco-resort on an atoll cay with handmade bungalows, sea-to-table meals, warm staff and alien nature. It’s beautiful, natural, tiny, quirky, idyllic and really isolated. This review is long (be warned) and overdue as we took our trip at the end of August. We were greeted at Tikehau airport by self-described “crusty Aussie surf-pirate” Mark Coleman filling...

Amazing place, paradise! Perfect for relaxing, enjoy the nature, dive, enjoy aquatic sports and falling asleep with the sound of the ocean and the trees. The owners are lovely and they do the best to make you happy! Furthermore, the food was mental!

I would love to share the details of this private heaven in Polynesia, but I would selfishly hate to spread the word to protect its most attractive characteristics: beauty, privacy, small size, dedicated and super nice staff.

This six bungalow private resort is the only facility on the motu in the Tikehau atoll. The owners have created an incredibly unique setting- this is the most creative and lovely resort I have ever visited and I travel extensively - much in the tropics. Each bungalow is unique. They are all spacious with every detail custom. They used much...

My wife an I spent four nights on Ninamu at the end of September. Simply put, Ninamu is beautiful, fun, relaxing, and unpretentious. As others have said, each bungalow is unique, but each is spacious and comfortable and has a sitting area, bathroom with shower, and a bedroom. Our bedroom was upstairs, and we had a view of the lagoon...

Chris has created a very special place in one of the most beautiful places of earth. Each bungalow is different, designed and build by himself. Food is natural, local, fulfilling and tasty. You can either relax on the beach or go for one of the many activities they will offer you. You will never forget every wake up in this...

I left this place feeling refreshed and relaxed, without a care in the world. The place is what it claims to be, a beautiful eco friendly island which makes you feel like Robinson Crusoe. It is uniquely amazing place. The bungalow we had was the far end one and 10m from the veranda is the beach and the friendly black...

I can not say enough how smart and clever Chris, the owner is. However, I feel so trapped being on such a small atoll for a week. Calling it a resort is a stretch because food is only served three meals a day with small controlled portions. No snacks at all in between meals. The electricity doesn't come on until...

I am baffled by all the reviews on this place. I went here because of trip advisor and was shocked to feel so differently from everyone else on tripadvisor.

My wife and I just returned from a 6 night stay at Ninamu to finish up our honeymoon, we had an unforgettable time!! The island and the experience that Chris has created is truly one-of-a-kind. It is remarkable how such a secluded and remote island has been turned into such a well-run resort that offers a little something for everyone....
