      This place is pure magic! Recommend renting a car, it is a beautiful drive on the farthest side if the island about 1.5hrs from airport. SO WORTH IT!! Checking in was simple, and the grounds were spectacular including the pools & views. I stayed at the Vai Iti bungalow and it was gorgeous, private & relaxing beyond your wildest dreams!

      We were delighted to begin our stay in Tahiti here! Lovely, private bungalows on a hillside with gorgeous views and beautiful foliage throughout the property. It was a special treat to relax in our own hot tub after a day of exploring. We enjoyed the creative meals with local fish & produce. The hostess also offers a challenging, fun yoga class in the gorgeous studio.

      We had a wonderful stay at the Vanira Lodge. We loved our open-air bungalow, as we felt one with the natural environment. The insects were not a problem, and the occasional iguana was charming. The sound of birds all around us was delightful!

      Fantastic lodge with amazing view

      Fantastic lodge with an amazing view on Tahiti Island and on the lagoon. Staff was adorable, food was absolutely great (incredible sauté de boeuf) kids loved the original pool and most of all the bungalows are beautiful, half outdoor, Polynesian style with local and natural materials. Just what we love!

      The food at this hotel was amazing. The staff is very friendly and willing to help with anything you need. The room/bungalow was really nice. The grounds a property was really pretty and well kept. Just make sure you rent a car instead of taking a cab to it.

    • 6.0.Good

      This is located on the hill facing the Tehupoo bay. Location is gorgeous, lots of flowers, trees to look at. There is a small pool and a restaurant onsite. Beware it's fairly isolated there's and you will need to drive to get to the nearest store. Our room(the cheapest on the property I think) was humid and there are lots of mosquitoes around. They offer excellent excursions by boat, don't miss out on these.

      We loved it!

      We wanted to stay in Teahapoo so my husband could surf everyday. We felt completely lucky to have found this gem. Located well above the ocean, but with incredible views, the environment is absolutely beautiful. We were thrilled to find that Vanira Lodge provides a well maintained trail complete with ropes for steadying oneself along the way in the jungle/rainforest above their facilities. The round trip hike took about 45 minutes. The views at the top are amazing. We also took part in the free yoga class that they provide in a beautiful and serene setting with open views of nature on two sides of the room. Our bungalow was adorable. Super quaint, one in a million experience. Look, this is not a luxury hotel. But it is absolutely breathtaking, unique and made for the adventurer that appreciates nature. We highly recommend it!!
