French Polynesia

I flew on Air Tahiti Nui via Paris and Los Angeles arriving in Tahiti just before midnight local time. I stayed at Le Meridien Hotel Tahiti, a gorgeous hotel with lovely views out to sea and of the Island of Moorea in the distance. In Rangiroa I enjoyed a wonderful day out on the lagoon, with great BBQ and of course swimming and snorkelling and having the opportunity to see reef sharks, lemon sharks and sting rays.

Bora Bora was next on the itinerary. We were met at the Quayside and transferred to the Hilton by the hotel’s very smart speedboat. The scenery and amazing shades of blue of the lagoons and sea are breathtaking. A night spent at the Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora in an over water bungalow was a real treat and an opportunity to dine at ‘Bloody Mary’s is not to be missed. Next on the agenda was the Island of Huahine.

A cultural tour of the island provided a good insight into the history of these beautiful islands. Here we stayed at the lovely Hotel Lapita. Last but not least, the island of Moorea. Yet another gem of an island. We stayed at the Moorea Pearly Resort & Spa here and went to the Tiki Village where we joined in their 25th Anniversary celebrations which included a Polynesian show.

The scenery, the food, the fantastic diving and snorkelling opportunities, the hospitality – a truly memorable trip!
