Le Sauvage Private Island

The secluded Le Sauvage Private Island is the ultimate Robinson Crusoe experience. Located on a small, private island across the way from sister property Kia Ora Resort & Spa, this intimate boutique hotel features only five beach bungalows constructed with traditional materials such as bamboo and exotic wood. The authenticity of this retreat captures the true essence of Polynesian living.

The one thing unique to Le Sauvage Private Island is the limited use of electricity. You will experience warm South Pacific nights with nothing but the stars and a lantern to light your way. Each silent evening is best spent in the hotel restaurant and lounge, where you can gather to dine with the other guests and enjoy the company and musical talents of your friendly host family.

NOTE: Le Sauvage Private Island will close in early 2018 for renovation with a reopening planned for early 2019.
