There are many sides to The Islands of Tahiti. Yet they are all connected by Mana. Mana is a life-force and spirit that surrounds us. You can see it. Touch it. Taste it. Feel it. And from the moment you arrive, you will understand why they say our islands are Embraced by Mana.
The islands of French Polynesia are elegantly sprinkled throughout 1.5 million square miles of ocean in the eastern South Pacific. The 118 islands and atolls that make up French Polynesia are a true tropical paradise. The best-known islands are Tahiti, Bora Bora, and Moorea.
Come experience the beauty that is French Polynesia. Whether you stay in world-famous Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, or venture to those lesser-known islands, allow us to help guide you to paradise and memories to last a lifetime.
Crowned by a circle of majestic peaks, the Island of Tahiti, the largest island in French Polynesia towers over the ocean like a proud and royal Queen.
The mountainous interior is adorned with mystical valleys, clear streams, and high waterfalls. Most of the island’s population resides near the shore, leaving the interior of the island feeling almost untouched and ancient, despite such proximity to the bustling capital of Papeete. Papeete, meaning “water basket,” was once a gathering place where Tahitians came to fill their calabashes with fresh water. Now, Papeete, the touchstone of this island nation, boasts world-class resorts, spas, fine dining and unique restaurants, nightclubs, vibrant markets, museums, pearl shops and boutiques.
Bora Bora rises from the velvet blues of the deep water, up through the softer hues of the lagoon and into the air that surrounds the island. Its touch on the sea breeze tingles the skin. And its power fills each beat of the heart.
A brief 50-minute flight from The Islands of Tahiti or Moorea, Bora Bora, with a lagoon resembling an artist’s palette of bright blues and greens, is love at first sight. Romantics from around the world celebrate Bora Bora where the lush tropical slopes and valleys of Mount Otemanu blossom with hibiscus, while palm-covered motu circle the illuminated lagoon like a delicate necklace.
Bora Bora’s perfect white-sand beaches give way to blue waters where tropical-colored fish animate the coral gardens and giant manta rays glide leisurely past. This could easily be defined as the center of the romantic universe, where luxury resorts and spas dot the island with overwater bungalows, thatched-roof villas, and a fabled ambiance.
Simply put, Bora Bora is one of the most beautiful islands in the world.
A few minutes from the island of Tahiti by plane, and only thirty minutes by high-speed catamaran, Moorea soars magically out of the ocean in an explosion of green velvet - precisely what you'd imagine a South Seas island to be.
A wide, shallow lagoon surrounds the island's vertical mountains where poetic threads of waterfalls tumble down fern-softened cliffs. Peaceful meadows flanked by pinnacles of green will fill your senses and renew your belief in the majesty of nature!
