Holiday in a luxury hotel in French Polynesia with Small Luxury Hotels of the World and enjoy sunset walks by palm-fringed lagoons, Monoi oil massages, and shop for exclusive jewellery made of rare black pearls.
Luxury French Polynesian beaches
Tuck a pink Tahitian hibiscus flower behind your ear and paddle a Polynesian pirogue (canoe) around tiny Motu Tu Vahine, ringed by dazzling white sand backed by swaying coconut groves. A Champagne picnic on an uninhabited Motu is followed by an afternoon watching moray eels slink into their holes and angel fish flit by on a snorkelling trip to Tahaa Lagoon’s barrier reef.
Luxury things to do in French Polynesia
The luxurious, sweet scent of vanilla fills the air in the jungle-filled hills of Tahaa, where the spice is harvested. Visit a pearl farm in Tahaa Lagoon and discover how beautiful Tahitian black pearls are grown. A dip beneath a crashing waterfall is the reward at the end of a horse ride through the wood-clad hills on Raiatea. Gaze down at the jagged black peak of Mount Otemanu on Bora Bora during a private helicopter tour from Motu Tu Vahine.
Gourmet French Polynesia
Your boutique French Polynesian hotel mixes French cuisine with Tahitian delicacies resulting in al fresco candle-lit suppers of crispy prawns with tender baby vegetables in coconut milk, and mahi-mahi steak flavoured with Tahaa vanilla and igname fries. Have dessert, like almond tender cake with roasted mangoes and cinnamon honey, served beneath the stars on your bungalow deck.
Holiday in a luxury hotel in French Polynesia with Small Luxury Hotels of the World and sip pineapple and ginger rum cocktails in a thatch-roof bar. Tropical fish and even baby sharks can be spotted through the aquarium table of your over-water bungalow.
