Beautiful retreat on the Motu Tuvahine

The ultimate island fantasy, VAHINE ISLAND – Private Island Resort & Spa is a remote Polynesian hideaway on its own private island with just nine beachfront and overwater bungalows hidden among coconut trees and facing a pristine blue lagoon. Promising warm, tropical seas, mouth-watering cuisine and carefree sun-filled days, this is truly paradise on earth.

Choose between VAHINE ISLAND's beachfront and overwater villas or suites in La Villa Royale. To enjoy the lagoon’s abundant wildlife, there is an aquarium table in the water bungalows to watch and feed the tropical fish that swim in the water below. Beachfront bungalows have a lazy hammock on their spacious decks with fabulous views of the lagoon and nearby Bora Bora.

Enjoy your stay!

Beautiful and remote place where I felt the most rested I have in my life.

The hotel is in the most beautiful location, the staff is excepcional, and the food delicious. It is very private and small, I fet like I was on my own private island. Will definitely return in the future.
