Named one of the world’s top 25 escapes by Conde Nast Traveler, Vahine Island Resort offers an authentic South Seas Experience to fulfill your French Polynesian fantasies. Tucked away on a 9-acre private islet surrounded by one of Taha'a’s untouched lagoons, this member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World is the perfect addition to your Tahitian itinerary.
Let yourself be lulled into a deep state of relaxation by the sounds of the ocean waves crashing against the island’s coral necklace. Enjoy the majestic views toward the island of Taha'a, or the splendid sunset behind Bora Bora in the distance.
Surrounded by white sand beaches, the resort features three Beach Bungalows, three Beach Suites, and three Overwater Bungalows. Our favorite is the spacious Beach Suite due to its unbelievable views.
Each romantic bungalow offers a taste “rustic luxury” and is made from locally hand-crafted materials with the perfect blend of Polynesian woods, thatched roofs, bamboo, pandanus walls and modern comforts.
Spend your days relaxing beneath the coconut grove or snorkeling by the coral reef. The warm staff here offers friendly and intimate service and will make sure your stay is superb.
Vahine Island is well-known for its spectacular cuisine, so breakfast and dinner are included with all stays – breakfasts are cooked to order and dinner is always a special treat!
