Tahiti is a magical place for an exotic honeymoon or romantic vacation. The islands and lagoons are stunningly beautiful and even the names are exotic. Bora Bora, Tikehau, Manihi, Moorea, Rangiroa… You’ll find dazzling white sand beaches and sparkling, turquoise water. Colorful fish and beautiful corals create spectacular underwater gardens, while blazing tropical flowers bloom against lush green foliage and dramatic mountain backdrops. Guests are pampered at some of the world’s most luxurious spas and breakfast becomes a once in a lifetime experience when delivered by outrigger canoe!
Tahiti is one of the few places in the world with overwater bungalows, glass viewing windows and steps off your private deck into the water below. These popular accommodations are found on almost all the islands but are best enjoyed on the outer islands and atolls such as Bora Bora.
The larger islands such as Tahiti and Moorea offer adventure, activities and shopping with a wide variety of resorts and accommodations. You can enjoy a four wheel drive excursion, hike to a waterfall, swim with the dolphins or take in a Polynesian show. Dining options range from “Les Roulottes” a family run collection of food trucks to 5 star gourmet restaurants. Public transportation is easy and affordable with Le Truk (the bus), scooters, rental cars and ferry as some of the many choices.
The outer islands include Bora Bora, Tikehau, Huahine, Raiatea and Taha’a. These smaller and more remote destinations offer the opportunity to leave the world truly behind. Sunsets and Tahitian t.v. (a glass viewing window) replace the nightly news. Hammocks sway between palms, horizon pools disappear into the blue beyond and the airport runway becomes a bicycle path after the daily flight departs.
Activities focus on the water with fabulous snorkeling and scuba diving, motu picnics, shark and ray feeding encounters, deep sea fishing and sunset sails. You may visit a black pearl farm, marae (temple) or see vanilla harvested. You may also enjoy unique and intimate spas, dining beneath the stars and time alone… together.
Garden and beach bungalows offer indulgent open air showers, jacuzzis and private plunge pools. Villas offer extravagant accommodations and romantic overwater bungalows come equipped with snorkel mask and fins for a dip in the warm clear water beneath your deck. You may even play Robinson Crusoe and stay on a tiny island without electricity or phones, it’s all up to you!
There are endless ways to enjoy Tahiti including romantic and luxurious honeymoon packages, dozens of single and multi island vacations starting at $4-5K for one week and some excellent great cruise options.
