My wife and I stayed in one of the small bungalows before a sailing trip around the islands, we were very pleased with the bungalow and especially the restaurant and were treated extremely well by the staff, Jean Jacque the owner and his lovely wife. We highly recommend Fare Vai Nui.

Jean-Jacques and Chantal have a beautifully designed, small pension, with exceptional food. Raiatea is quite hard to get around (you need a car) and this Pension is not in walking distance of other food options (although there are shops within bike riding distance). But we had a lovely time kayaking to the motus for snorkelling and eating every night in...

20 km away from Uturoa this bungalow hotel is in quiet setting on the ocean with views to Bora Bora in the west. The accommodation is small but the four bungalows are in polished Balinese wood where attention to detail is second to none. Jean-Jacques, his wife Chantal who is an excellent chef in addition to the staff are helpful...

We thoroughly enjoyed our four nights at Fare Vai Nui. Raiatea is a more traditional version of French Polynesia (as opposed to Tahiti or Bora Bora), and this hotel enabled us to experience it while living in comfort and dining in style. Our room was simple but felt luxurious; it's in the traditional Polynesian style (and with airconditioning) - see...

The accommodation is very well maintained and the view of each bungalow is directly to the lagoon. They are directly at the beach and very clean. The best accommodation so far in French Polynesia. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to everyone. A car or scooter to get along is recommended. The owner is very friendly and the food in...

Jean-Jacques, his wife and all of the staff provide an extremely high level of personal service in every aspect of their wonderful accommodation. From the airport transfer, beautiful bungalows, kayaks (great for visiting the nearby motu to snorkel around the coral), personal car rental (to explore the island), fully stocked bar and wine cellar, outstanding freshly prepared food for breakfast...

Nice location overlooking the motu and reef. the hotel looked good too, but we were sleeping on our boat. We will always plan to go bakc here for a...

Our travel agent in New Zealand booked us into this hotel when we told him we wanted to go to Raiatea. As it turned out accomodation was hard to find due to a windsurfing event and he came back to us with Fare Vai Nui which was 20kms out of Uturoa. We wondered what we would be going to. However,we...

we were anchored just offshore and came in for dinner on recommendation of our charter company. Did not disappoint - great staff, wonderful wine list, excellent food with lots of variety - fish, boar, pork, beef - something for everyone.!

We'd booked the night after a 10-day sail to stay until the next day's flight to Papeete. The hotel at which we'd booked, Hawaiki Nui, had unexpectedly closed and we were potentially three homeless couples in Raiatea! Our sailboat charter company hastily made reservations for us here at Fare Vai Nui. What a find! Jean-Jacques picked us up at the...

“We had our own beds for the night but Jean Jacques was happy to show us the accommodation. We were first taken to a well appointed 'small' room. Pristine and adequate with attractive storage and beautiful wooden fittings. The bathrooms were attractive, clean and inviting. The larger rooms have an additional bed with a rollaway bed below it. Here the bathroom was much larger. All was wonderfully clean, set in a pleasant garden with views of the ocean.”
