Works of art these all natural "fare" create a univers as magic as a child dream. On a plateau, facing the sea and the sun set, each bungalow can sleep 1 to 4 persons with private kitchen and bathroom. Vanira means vanilla in Tahitian. Vanilla, as in the sweetness, harmony and tranquililty you'll find during your stay at Vanira Lodge.

Or everyone will want to go there! Truly extraordinary slice of heaven, far south on Tahiti Iti's west coast. Absolutely, serenely beautiful, each bungalow is totally private and has a Lost Horizon kind of view down over the rain forest to the sea. Each is a little unique; with

Vanira Lodge is the consummate get-away if you want to be surrounded by peace, privacy and beauty. The food is over the top for taste and presentation. Each bungalow had its own personality with unique and interesting designs like no other in the world. This location made it

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
We rented the Vai Here bungalow Jan 2019. The weather was wonderful, the lodge is amazingly put together. The grounds/lodging: Every bungalow is situated in such a way that you feel like you rented your own private house. The bungalow has two air conditioned bedrooms with

We arrived later than we wanted due to flight delays. It was pouring rain and dark but the well lit sign gave us plenty of notice to turn.. I did not realize that it was up so high but we made it. We had supper in the restaurant and it was very good, as was the breakfast.

Factory making fiberglass boats right next door. All through the day we suffered the acrid stench of curing fiberglass (epoxy) resin - certainly one of the least natural or outdoorsy smells. The entire pool area and area by the "spa" bungalows were affected by this stench.

Is the beach easy enough to reach from this accomodation? :)
Hi, The Vanira Lodge is on a hill top. You would need to drive down. (You will need a car when you are staying there and I do recommend you have it!). There is a little beach on the other side of the road when you drive downhills. Do not count on bathing at that one. There is another beach that I think it is called Maui Beach. They will help you with information about it at the hotel.

We used a car and driver (arranged by my companion as a surprise) but Europcar hire cars and rates were reasonable- hired on Huahine and saw them on Tahiti

Is there public transportation from the harbor in Papeete to your Lodge?
I'm not aware of any public transportation that goes out that far. It may exist, but I never saw it during our stay. We rented a car, and it was well worth it. Whatever you do, make sure you stay at this place. And it's simply amazing.

Fête autorisée ?
La question est une sacrée colle :-) Dans l'absolu, cela me semble compliqué, dans la mesure où la principale caractéristique du lieu est justement de se fondre dans cette nature environnante , le calme, la pureté. Mais peut-être y a-t-il une solution adaptée sur place ? Il suffit de contacter le Vanira Lodge, l'accueil est excellent !

"Make sure you book a spa bungalow if you want air conditioning"
"The spa bungalows - the only ones with air conditioning and doors/windows separating rooms from the outside - are the nearest to the STENCH"
"Vai Here is a great bungalow, but read about them all and choose what is good for you."
"choose the room with the hot tub"
"We stayed in Ofai. It was perfect for us, as we like room to move around."
