Off the northeast corner of Le Taha’a, on a 23 acre private motu (islet), sits a tiny pearl in a necklace of islets ringing the serene lagoon. Vahine Island has been included in the prestigious Small Luxury Hotel group’s collection of hidden treasures since 2006. Nestled in the heart of a magnificent coconut grove full of light and shadows, surrounded by coral gardens, this 9 acre property welcomes only a handful of guests at a time for an intimate stay in paradise. The friendly staff ensures visitors are in good hands, offering personal attention with a signature Polynesian warmth. The resort harmonizes beautifully with the natural surroundings on Motu Tu Vahine, “The Island of the Woman,” and delivers scenic views of Le Taha'a, Raiatea, Huahine and Bora Bora in the near distance. With easy access to the lagoon and complimentary activities such as snorkeling, kayaking and outrigger canoeing, this resort provides a thoroughly exceptional French Polynesian experience.
Seafood lovers, rejoice! An abundance of fresh seafood is fished daily from the lagoon and (along with other fare) prepared in a refined yet authentic style in the beachside restaurant. The well-stocked bar includes an excellent wine list. The beach is situated in a protected cove on the beautiful lagoon and with an array of complimentary activities such as snorkeling, kayaking and outrigger canoeing you will hardly notice the absence of a swimming pool.
