A private island resort in far-flung French Polynesia, this Tahitian getaway has all you need for a luxurious adventure. Measuring just 23 acres, the island in the Tahaa lagoon is cosy and compact, a mini-paradise of white sand beaches, dappled coral and turqoise waters. Stay here to enjoy superb sunsets over Bora Bora and truly feel away from it all.
Overwater bungalows make for a tropical break from the norm, and come with all the comforts you could wish for, from bathrooms with double sinks and showers, to minibars, sofas, internet access and a king-sized bed. Covered terraces have a hammock overlooking the water. Polynesia beach suites are made from local wood and really blend in with the environment. Beach bungalows offer plenty of space and are set on a manicured lawn.
You may be away from it all, but there’s plenty to keep you occupied. Choose from snorkelling in the lagoon, with equipment provided for you, fishing trips around the reef, beach and board games, and even a tour of the site with a trained naturalist. Pirogues with oars are on hand for setting off under your own steam, and learning about local customs is on offer too, with demonstrations on weaving coconut leaves.
French Chef Térence has worked in Michelin-starred kitchens, and puts his personal touch to delectable dishes that take their influence from local and Mediterranean cooking styles and ingredients. Lazy lunches and romantic candlelit dinners of fresh salads, grilled meat and fish and artfully presented seafood will wow you during your stay. Then of course there is the specially organised traditional dancing and entertainment, with colourful local costumes.
