“The adventure and vacation of a lifetime!”

We stayed on the motu for 9 nights. Let me say that it was the best vacation we have ever had. We have stayed at beautiful, fancy resorts all over the world. But Villa Ahuna is far better than all of them. It is in a class of its own! We felt like locals living on the island, not tourists staying in a fake, artificial resort setting. We enjoyed waking up in the morning to the sound of the waves breaking on the reef, and watching the sun come up over the water from bed. Feeding the fish each morning was unforgettable - there is an octopus that lives at the foot of one of the docks that we fed as well. The fish, eels, and birds were all so beautiful. We are both boaters, and having the small powerboat at our disposal was great - we circled the island every day, exploring all the small nooks and inlets we could find. We stopped at all the hotels for drinks, breakfast a few times, and lunch. At night, we photographed the Southern Cross, as well as many thousands of stars. Bora Bora is a magical, romantic place, and the Villa Ahuna was the perfect place to enjoy all that the island had to offer. I would 100% recommend it to anyone with a sense of adventure and anyone looking for a place 180 degrees from the ordinary. Don't worry about bugs, or no A/C; such small inconveniences are of no significance when you have the most beautiful island to yourdelves!

“Authentic Paradise”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 for a stay in March 2013

My husband and I and our 4 teenage boys spent a heavenly week at Motu Ahuna last March. The open air living room/ kitchen is beautifully decorated in island decor and has everything you need to prepare meals and relax in your own private paradise. The sleeping bungalows are beautiful as well. This villa is on a small island in the Bora Bora lagoon about a 10 minute boat ride from town. The villa is surrounded by charming gardens and several small beaches and docks. There are a few other homes on the island, but these seem to be mostly used by local residents on the weekends. We only saw 2 cute kids with their pet pig one day,(they enjoyed the marshmallows we were roasting) otherwise we had the island to ourselves. This is a rustic paradise where you can expect some Mosquitos and other visitors. There is no AC in the bedrooms, but there are fans. Electricity is run from solar panels and a generator, so you need to conserve, but in a strange way that is part of the charm of it. We bought fresh food at the grocery daily including the very inexpensive and delicious French baguettes and ate simple breakfasts and lunches. For dinner we cooked fresh fish and steak over the open air fire grill and drank rum cocktails with fruit juice. With no TV and a slow internet connection we spent our evenings sitting on the dock watching the sun set and the millions of stars come out while talking with our teenage sons. It was a rare and special time! During the day there is a small motor boat that will fit 6(better with less)that we used to explore the lagoon, snorkel and go to town. There is also a kayak. We also enjoyed lounging around our private paradise. This is a very special place owned by a local Bora Bora resident who is honest and kind. It is much different from staying at a resort but less expensive and more authentic. You have to have a bit of an adventurous spirit, but if you do, you will love it like we did and dream of returning again.

“Just...Wow”

This has to be one of the most beautiful and amazing places I've ever had the great pleasure of staying at. The turquoise lagoon, the peaceful isolated feeling, the lovely and artistically decorated home... It really is paradise. There are 5 or 6 private little beaches, a small boat to take to the mainland to get supplies and explore with, a wonderful salon and kitchen hang out area, just look at the pictures.. The owner is a kind person operating under complete integrity.
If you're looking for a luxury pampered vacation, stay at a fancy resort, the Villa Ahuna is where you get to be a modern day castaway. You get to cook your own meals, cut open coconuts, swim/snorkel in the lagoon, or just lie around and watch the clear blue sky and listen to the gentle sounds of the ocean. There are some mosquitos, but not on the beach, and the stars are fantastic. Often at night you can hear the distant sound of tribal drums across the water.
I feel so honored to have been able to visit this wonderful place and I think about it every single day, hoping to be lucky enough to return some day.
