Vahine Island’s three romantic Beach Bungalows sit right by the waterside, with views of the serene, coral-dotted turquoise lagoon and dramatic ocean waves breaking on the reef. These double rooms feature 30 square metres of open-plan living space, with king- or twin-sized beds, and a bathroom with shower and double sinks. Simple Polynesian-designed interiors give island style a barefoot-luxe spin, drawing on natural materials and local handicrafts. Outside, take in gorgeous views of iconic island Bora Bora from the hammock or one of the two sun-beds on your private deck (20 square metres). All rooms have air-conditioning and a ceiling fan. To stay even closer to the crystal-clear lagoon, take a peek at the intimate Overwater Bungalows.

The three Beach Suites are the ultimate in lagoonside living, offering more space than the Bungalows as well as added privacy thanks to an additional lounge area. Relax and admire gorgeous views of Bora Bora from one of the two decks (60 square metres); on the hammock or sun-beds overlooking the lagoon or in a deckchair nestled among the coconut trees. Inside, the open-plan living area (50 square metres) features a king-size bed, spacious lounge area (with a sofa, two armchairs and a coffee table) and a bathroom with two sinks and a shower. As with the Bungalows, the interior decor is naturally luxurious, featuring Polynesian island-style design and handicrafts. All rooms have air-conditioning, and the Beach Suites have two ceiling fans. The sofa can sleep an extra person on request.
The three Overwater Bungalows sit directly over the lagoon, with views of iconic isle Bora Bora. Soak up the Polynesian rays from the hammock or sun-bed on your private deck, before taking a few steps down to cool off in the water. Inside, each features an ‘aquarium table’, offering a magical view of the exotic fish sharing the lagoon with you (it opens up if you want to feed them and is illuminated at night). Interiors are laid-back yet luxe, sharing the same local design, handicrafts and natural materials as the Beach Bungalows. With 35 square metres of internal space (and the same again outside), the Overwater Bungalows come with king-size or twin beds, a living area and separate bathroom with shower and double sinks. All rooms have air-conditioning and a ceiling fan. For more space and added privacy, take a look at the island’s premium Beach Suites.
