Vahine Island Resort & Spa

Vahine Island is located on a small private islet along the northeastern coral reef surrounding Taha'a. Only thirty minutes away by boat from Raiatea, this prime placement delivers scenic views of Taha'a, Raiatea, Huahine and Bora Bora. Tucked inside a pristine coconut grove, this intimate boutique hotel provides the ultimate privacy and blends seamlessly with the island's natural environment.

Vahine Island features only three overwater bungalows and six beachfront suites, welcoming just a handful of guests at a time. Each bungalow is traditionally designed with exotic wood furnishings and quilted Tahitian bedding. The hotel's beachside restaurant serves romantic dinners by candlelight, dishing up refined cuisine paired with an excellent wine list. The resort provides easy access to the beautiful lagoon and complimentary activities such as snorkeling, kayaking and outrigger canoeing; meaning you will hardly notice the absence of a swimming pool.

Our Insights

This boutique resort is truly Polynesian in its design. We love the spacious and airy layout of the Deluxe Beach Bungalows, which feature doors that open completely to reveal the water on one side and the coconut grove on the other. You can fall asleep to the sound of the waves and wake up early to watch the local fisherman reeling in their daily catch. The nearby coral garden is amazing for snorkeling. The food at this resort is fantastic, and the overall ambiance makes it a real hidden gem on the island of Taha'a.
