OK, here's the deal - if you want a resort hotel, then book a resort hotel. If however you want to stay in a beautiful hillside location, with sunset views and landscaped gardens, then this is the place. The bungalows themselves (we stayed in Kava) are basic but have everything you need. The bathroom has a shower made of stone,...

Vanira Lodge was something very different from any normal hotel or lodge. If you a 4 or 5 star traveller, this place is not for you! The location of the lodge is amazing! Set high on a hill side with amazing views of the sea! We awoke to breath-taking sunrises over the ocean every morning. (Had no choice but to...

My wife and I stayed here at the start of our honeymoon. I think if you want big luxury hotels you might as well pop out to one of the more suited islands, like Mo’orea which is just a hop away. For Tahiti, we thought somewhere like Vanira lodge (which had been highly recommended in a guidebook) would be ideal....

Vanira lodge was in a beautiful area and the bungalows were exactly like the pictures. We were lucky enough to have almost perfect weather our whole trip, though it does seem to rain much more down in Tahiti-iti. The downside to this place is that the owners are almost non-existent. We would have liked some tips on what to do...

Simply the most beatyefull place I know. All the times I travel to the French Polinesia, I stay on Tahiti Island for a week just because of the beautyness of Vanira Lodge.

"... a guest house with a difference..." very funny to read this sentence on the website of this place. "...sweetness, harmony & tranquillity " sounds even funnier... Vanira Lodge is a place where: – "all-natural 'fare'" is made with a lot of plastic material and smells veeery bad – the "natural" roof is watered at least five times a day...

We first heard of this place through a lonely planet guide and decided to look into it a bit further... it was built only a few years ago and had its first guests in May 2005.
