Tahiti and her islands are a beautiful paradise of sparkling turquoise waters, pristine beaches and breath-taking scenery, creating the perfect romantic retreat. With luxurious resorts suspended over the crystal clear waters Tahiti and her islands are considered to be one of the top honeymoon destinations.
Tahiti’s 118 stunning islands are spread over 5 diverse archipelagos. Three of these, the Society Archipelago, the Tuamotu Archipelago and the Marquesas Archipelago are home to fantastic resorts providing idyllic honeymoon destinations. To get the most out of your Tahitian honeymoon visit more than one archipelago for a fascinating contrast.
For pure indulgence, pampering and relaxation opt for Tahiti’s Society Islands. This archipelago includes the island of Tahiti itself, Moorea, Bora Bora, Huahine and Taha’a. Each of these islands is home to luxurious resorts offering elegant accommodation perched around or over the turquoise lagoons. Stay at the stylish Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort and Spa, the ultimate in exclusive honeymoon escapism. Situated on ‘Moto Teveiroa’ in Bora Bora’s idyllic lagoon, this stunning resort provides the dream setting for a romantic retreat. Accommodation is provided in 20 garden pool suites, 10 beach suites and 50 overwater bungalows.
Many honeymooners choose to stay in the overwater bungalows to enjoy the unique sensation of living inches above the turquoise waters. Each offers direct access to the lagoon from a private sundeck so you can easily take a refreshing dip after soaking up the sun. Inside the bungalows are elegantly decorated yet retain the authenticity of a traditional Polynesian thatched ‘fare’ home. Spend your days being pampered in the spa, exploring the colourful aquatic life or swimming in the pristine waters. Watch the sunset over the still Pacific Ocean whilst you enjoy a tropical cocktail on your sundeck – the end of another day in paradise.
Alternatively you could visit Tahiti’s Tuamotu Archipelago for a castaway island escape. These blissful low-lying atolls include Tikehau, Manihi, Rangiroa and Fakarava. Discover a hidden paradise on the charming island of Tikehau, a graceful oval of pink sand beaches lined with swaying coconut palms. Relax at the Tikehau Pearl Beach Resort, an intimate retreat of 38 bungalows located either on the beach or over the lagoon. The overwater suites offer direct access to the lagoon and boast a spacious 93 metres for you to relax in privacy. Tikehau’s azure lagoon is teeming with colourful marine life so make the most of the resorts diving facilities and explore the turquoise depths.
For those with a sense of adventure head to the wild and rugged Marquesas Islands. With its spectacular peaks and valleys, towering cliffs, raging waterfalls and distinct culture you can experience a whole different side to Tahiti and Her islands. Stay on the fertile island of Hiva Oa, at the Hanakee Hiva Oa Pearl Lodge. Perched on a hillside facing Mount Temetui, the Lodge’s 14 rustic bungalows enjoy fabulous views of Traitors Bay, the Bordelais canal and the small island of Hanakee. Explore the stunning valleys on a jeep safari or try one of the hiking or mountain bike trails. Visit Takaii, the largest tiki statue in French Polynesia, and the fascinating archaeological site of Puamau. A visit to the Marquesas Archipelago is a great contrast to the Society Archipelago and the Tuamotu Archipelago. Combining a stay on more than one archipelago is a delightful way of experiencing this iconic honeymoon paradise.
