Set on the remote Avea Rahi motu on the south coast of Rangiroa, this property has just five thatched beach bungalows made with precious woods, woven palms, and bamboo. The word "sauvage" is something of an exaggeration; while there's no electricity or phone service here, the bungalows have luxurious king-size beds and spacious coral-tile bathrooms with plenty of hot water. Meals are occasionally prepared and served at outdoor tables, with 360-degree views of the lagoon by day and stars arching overhead at night. Swimming, snorkeling, and soaking up the sun are the main pastimes—and if you're a night owl, this definitely isn't the place for you. Evening activities here are limited to cuddling up with someone you love or a really good novel.
