Luxury travel French Polynesia
Tahiti & Her Islands
Icons of the South Pacific, Tahiti, Bora Bora and Moorea are quite simply unlike anywhere else on Earth.
Often referred to simply as Tahiti, the island territory of French Polynesia consists of 118 islands in six different archipelagos, stretching over an area almost the size of Europe. Images of her bright blue lagoons, pierced by ardent green mountain peaks, and dotted with luxurious overwater bungalows, have become synonymous with honeymoons and romance.
The Society Island archipelago includes Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, Huahine, Raiatea, Tetiaroa and Taha’a (among others), and is home to 90% of the population, as well as the only international airport. Here you’ll find those iconic lagoons, the most luxurious resorts and the vast bulk of attractions and activities.
Those who venture further afield will be able to step back in time and meet real locals. You’ll have to be content with longer days of travelling and more rustic lodgings, however you will be rewarded with deserted beaches, surprisingly rich history and authentic Polynesian culture.
