Summary of 30 verified reviews


Excellent hotel. Awesome rooms and service in a great location. Beautiful beach.

This Tahiti hotel in Tahaa is located in a paradise-like setting on the Motu Tu Vahine (Island of the Woman), a private little island of 23 acres, in the middle of the lagoon of Tahaa. The Vahine Island, Private Island Resort has everything to make your stay in paradise an unforgettable one.

Vahine Island offers 3 types of lodging : 3 overwater "farés" (local style overwater bungalows) on the lagoon, 3 beach "fares," and 3 deluxe suite "fares".

White sand beaches, a magnificent coconut grove full of light and shadows, a coral garden full of underwater splendors, a full range of blue hues splashed across the lagoon, and a backdrop of superb sunsets over Bora Bora will take your breath away and remain forever etched in your memories of this unbelievable place.

Vahine Island is one of those exceptional spots that steps outside of time, unique and spellbinding, where calm and sensuality harmonize with charm and serenity.
