I love to travel and discover places that offer an authentic experience. I am not the person that is going to go to a gorgeous island and swim in the Pool! I want to be in the beautiful water that I traveled half way around the world for! So if you are a resort person who

If you are a Marriott / Sheraton (American style luxury resort) type. This might not be the best place for you! On an other hand, if you like nature, personal touch service, authentical experience and total relaxation, you will LOVE this paradise in the middle of the Pacific

Great overall experience. Arrival at Raiatea airport from Papeete airport was convenient as we were met by the Resort representative and walked a short distance directly to the transfer boat. A short 20 minute or so boat ride to the dock at Vahine. A wonderful welcome with

I spent 4 nights here in Nov. in a beach suite (number 3). Pierre (the chef whose team made the most awesome cuisine!) and Elizabeth (the island host) welcomed me and showed me around. When I saw my suite, my mouth about dropped to the ground! I told her not to be surprised

This is an absolutely quiet and peaceful place. Buildings (bungalows, bar, restaurant) are constructed with local materials and fit very well in the natural enviroment. The entire site is well maintained and cleaned ervery day. Our over-water-bungalow was comfortable and had a

Hi, getting to French Polynesia isn't the easiest of destinations to get to but worth the travel. It depends which country you are coming from. From Australia, it took us three planes and a boat to get to Vahine and we had to spend a night either side in Papeete as there wasn't any connecting flights to Raiatea. I think coming from America isn't as bad as we met a family from New York. I think they flew out of LA to Papeete and were then able to get a connecting flight to Raiatea and that's where the boat will collect you from and take you for the 40 minute trip to Vahine Island. You need to organize the flights to Raiatea (also make sure you check luggage limits as its a small plane and smaller limits than the bigger planes) and once you have flight details, contact Vahine and they will make sure someone is a Raiatea airport to transport you by boat

"Last fare at end very secluded and private"
"Bungalow #6 is the last of the bungalows so you only have 1 bungalow next to you. Quiet with great views"
"comparing the beach suites to the beach bungalows: suites have the bed facing water. Also, you have a little sitting area.."
"The end overwater bungalow is as peaceful as it gets."
"The 3 over water bungalows are wonderful and the 6 beach-front bungalows are also very nice. You cannot go wrong with either."
