French Polynesia is defined by its exclusivity. Comprising 118 beautiful, volcanic islands which boast some of the South Pacific’s most breathtaking scenery, its seclusion and beauty make this unspoilt territory one of the most sought-after holiday destinations in the world.
We at Destinology have carefully compiled a comprehensive collection of luxurious French Polynesia holiday packages, each perfectly designed to give you the exclusive experience of a lifetime.
The Myth of the Islands
Throughout history, artistic depictions and descriptions of French Polynesia have painted the islands – Bora Bora in particular – as being very special. The myths born out of these passionate admirations have largely centred around the idea that French Polynesia represents a heaven on Earth; a haven for the body and mind and an indulgence for the senses. Bougainville described it as a mythical paradise and called it the new Cythera whilst being compared it to the famed Garden of Eden.
Travellers to French Polynesia will find these descriptions tremendously accurate. Each island boasts its own distinct topographical features, but do expect to find crystal clear waters, breathtaking lagoons, cascading waterfalls, luxuriant flora, and ancient cliffs and caves containing archaeological treasures. In addition, Papeete – Tahiti’s capital and French Polynesia’s cultural centre boasts a wealth of bustling markets, inviting bars and charming restaurants.
Romantic Honeymoons in French Polynesia
Because of its spectacular beauty, French Polynesia has long been a favourite for honeymooning couples. Romance thrives here; from the quiet beauty of the black basalt sands of Papara to the tumbling green hills of Taha’a, these islands could have been created solely for the purpose of inspiring and sustaining love.
Of course, no honeymoon would be complete without a little luxury, so we’ve put together a number of tantalising travel packages that are sure to entice romantic couples. Our destinations include the Vahine Island Private Island Resort, the Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora and the Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort & Spa each of which offer incomparable levels of style, service and sophistication.
Beautiful Island Villas
French Polynesia is not short on luxurious accommodation and so, for the ultimate island experience, it’s essential that you opt for your own private villa. There are plenty to stay in across the archipelago, including the water villas of The St Regis Bora Bora Resort, the eco-friendly villas of The Brando on Tahiti, and the traditional thatched villas of the Le Tahaa Island Resort and Spa.
