Vahine Island – Private Island Resort, Tahaa, French Polynesia
The ultimate island fantasy, Vahine Island 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. Surrounded by white sand beaches, a turquoise lagoon and pristine coral gardens, Vahine Island is located on a private island on the north of Tahaa in French Polynesia, only 35 minutes by boat from Raitaea Airport. Tucked inside a pristine coconut grove, this intimate boutique hotel provides the ultimate privacy and blends seamlessly with the island’s natural environment.
Facilities & Activities:
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. Take a nature tour of the 23-acre Vahine Island or go down to the water sports like kayaking, snorkeling, swimming, windsurfing or rowing on a Polynesian pirogue. In the evening, sit back and savour cocktails made from local fresh fruit juices and Polynesian spirits. Then dine by candlelight in the restaurant on French cuisine with a Polynesian twist.
Rooms & Bungalows:
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. All bungalows were decorated with wooden pieces and local crafts by a polynesian designer and are equipped with air conditioning, bathrooms with double sinks, Molton Brown toiletries, LCD screen, DVD players and a minibar.
The hotel’s beachside restaurant serves romantic dinners by candlelight, dishing up refined cuisine paired with an excellent wine list.
