Idyllic. Tropical. Supreme. Your welcome will be as warm as the balmy breeze.
Often lauded as the most beautiful place in the world, the islands of Tahiti and the Society Islands: Mo’orea, Bora Bora, Huahine, Taha’a, and Raiatea are ringed by coral reefs, teeming with exotic fish. The dense forested interiors, glistening lagoons, and majestic peaks of volcanoes silhouetted against cobalt skies all add to the dramatic beauty of French Polynesia.
Enjoy a warm welcome by locals in dugout canoes adorned with flower garlands; experience traditional ceremonies and decadent feasts; swoop around the volcanic peaks of Mo'orea and her sister islands in a dramatic helicopter flight; explore a secret wreck with long-buried treasure on a scuba-dive (or snorkel) guided by a local captain; discover romantic candlelit dining tables set up on far-flung beaches where authentic Polynesian dancers will entertain you under a canopy of stars; enjoy an exclusive visit to a black pearl farm; jump onto 4x4s and head out to explore the interior and meet locals in their homes, a world away from modern life.
Where to Stay
Over-water bungalows teetering above coral reefs; superlative spa hotels; your own superyacht; private island retreats.
When to Go
The weather is at its best between June and August. Avoid November to April when the showers are more frequent. Great to combine with Hawaii or New Zealand.
