The Islands of Tahiti, Moorea and Bora Bora are located in the Society Islands Archipelago, part of the larger 118 islands and atolls that make up French Polynesia. This South Pacific destination is breathtakingly beautiful. The sea’s palette of blues, from indigo to pale opal, come together against pristine white sand beaches, black sand beaches, lush tropical forests and grand volcanos.

Each of the three islands offers something unique. The main island of Tahiti is home to the territory’s unpretentious and buzzing capital, Papeete; beautiful black-sand beaches and waterfall-laden, shadowy mountains. Moorea offers dramatic volcanic scenery and a laid back ambiance. Bora Bora is the South Pacific’s ultra-sophisticated destination and is often toted the most beautiful island in the world because of its white sand beaches, spectacular lagoon and turquoise waters.

A Tahitian holiday provides the perfect setting for visitors to relax, rejuvenate and renew – to find themselves in a state of utter relaxation surrounded by water, sky, quiet and plenty of space to breathe. Snorkelling among tropical fish in coral lagoons, waking to the sound of water lapping beneath an over-water villa, and submitting one’s self to a massage within a world-class spa are simply a few of the pleasures on offer.

There is no shortage of luxury accommodation on these islands, all loaded with the trappings one just can't live without. The best resorts provide an oasis of tranquillity and comfort for guests, whether they choose to stay in resort rooms, garden or beach bungalows, or individual over-water villas (complete with glass floors, sunken bathtubs and sundecks). Many provide additional services to guarantee an unforgettable stay such as a chilled glass of wine on the beach at sunset; breakfast served from an outrigger canoe; or a secluded, multicourse candle-lit dinner.

Visitors looking for a little adventure can hike through dense tropical foliage around Mt Marau in Tahiti’s rugged interior or perhaps join a 4WD safari expedition to the heart of Moorea to discover historical sights and panoramas. Aquatic enthusiasts can partake in scientist-led dolphin and whale watching expeditions; while shark and ray snorkelling trips will deliver an extreme experience for those who prefer the up-close and personal approach!
