Vahine is an off-the-grid Tahitian paradise with attention to detail of a 5-star luxury resort and casual laid-back warmth of staying with friends who happen to prepare Michelin style meals. This review is long (be warned) and overdue as we took our trip at the end of August. I was looking to spend a big birthday unplugged in an overwater...

Well, where should I start? May be by saying that this is the most wonderful place I have ever been on earth. If you are looking for paradise, Vahine Island is the perfect place to go. A small and incredibly beautiful island, just nine Bungalows, three of them being overwater Bungalows which we were lucky enough to stay in. We...

If you're looking for an isolated and beautiful place, do not hesitate to stay at Vahine Island Resort! This was the favorite part of our three-island honeymoon vacation. Upon landing at Raiatea airport, you are greeted by a friendly face and escorted to a comically tiny boat. I was actually a little concerned that we would tip over in the...

We have visited Vahine Island 6 or 7 times for a week each time in the last 8 years. It just gets better and better each time! The resort physical plant has been consistently improved, A/C added about 5 years ago, all rooms upgraded with better doors and curtains, the dining room redone, an herb garden added, an expanded and...

Vahine Island Resort was the perfect spot for me to celebrate my birthday - it was a big one for me- we’ll leave it at that! I had no idea where to go and stay, but the South Pacific has always been on my bucket list. A friend suggested Tahiti and recommended Custom Tahiti Travel. So, I started working with...

We were very unlucky during our stay. We went for three nights. First, I must say that the food was incredible and the people were very friendly and tried to help you. In spite of that we had major problems. We arrived on a Saturday Afternoon about 2:00 PM. We were shown to our room and then we were left...

All of the reviews about Vahine are true, so it does not seem necessary to write another one. The staff are wonderful, the food is amazing and the resort goes out of its way to make sure that each guest is happy. However, I would like to specifically mention to snorkeling since that the primary reason we went to the...

Elisabeth, Pierre, Roi, Heimata, and the rest of the staff treat you like you're staying at their own home. You'll receive the royal treatment from the time you land at Raiatea, until the moment you're dropped off at the check-in line for your outbound flight. This resort is everything you want to make of it, whether it's lay back and...

My wife and I have been to Bora Bora previously and wanted to try another island in French Polynesia. We decide on Taha'a. Vahine looked to be an interesting place so we booked a 6 night stay. The resort is small, only 9 rooms, but the service is great. The staff is extremely friendly and are always working to assure...
