A different kind of accommodation
A different type of stay rustic but luxurious. Cabins were large with all the amenities you could ask for. Being somewhat rustic there was no AC. The fan made up for that to a degree. Only 6 cabins made for a different take on your usual type of accommodation

Great stay during COVID lockdown
The entire experience was great from start to finish. Bernardo us up on the boat from the airport for a short 30 minute ride to the island. The island is private with four bungalows, a bar and a restaurant. We were there during the COVID lockdown, so while we were unable to go to the island for excursions, we did use their kayaks several times. Our bungalow was spacious with a bedroom, separate living area, bathroom and full deck. The overall service was great with Bernardo being so gracious and helpful. The owners were also there and were very welcoming. Aside from the amazing setting, our next favorite thing was the food. For part of our stay they brought Arthur, a professional chef. Everything was delicious! Thank you for a great experience!!

One of the great meals during our stay. Even made an island with a palm tree out of a lime :-)

Magical. Unforgettable. A little slice of paradise
There are only five bungalows on this cozy, private island accessible by 30-minute boat ride from the Raiatea airport (10 minutes by boat from Taha’a). Everything here is picture-perfect and like a dream! The grounds are meticulously maintained and the bungalows are well-appointed with indoor and outdoor furnishings, including comfy bedding and pillows, an electric tea kettle (with coffee, tea and bottled water provided), a mini fridge and soft, fluffy towels. You will feel welcomed from the moment you arrive, and your every need will be attended to! Our hosts greeted us with fresh juice and fragrant leis upon our arrival and sent us off with shell necklaces at departure. All tours were easily arranged upon request, including transportation from the island. The intimate setting and amazing hospitality here truly makes you feel like you’re visiting relatives who just happen to own their own island! We didn’t want to leave! We stayed in the Family Bungalow, which provided two beds + twin-sized sleeper sofa. Situated at the end of the island, we had a panoramic ocean view to watch sunrise and sunset from the floor-to-ceiling windows, open patio doors or balcony. We were situated less than ten steps from the island’s private, protected lagoon, where we observed a gorgeous coral garden filled with tropical fish, stingrays, sea cucumbers, and reef sharks. We borrowed kayaks, masks and snorkels from our hosts — but we could just as easily simply stand in the lagoon and observe.

Rare et exceptionnel
Une parenthèse enchantée. Le motu paradisiaque et dans un jardin de corail. Les farés magnifiques, l'accueil et le service irréprochables. Nous avons vécu un moment d'exception. Si vous devez séjourner en Polynésie, passez par là, vous aurez un aperçu de ce qu'elle offre à voir et vivre.
