French Polynesia’s islands fascinate with their jagged peaks, palm tree-lined beaches, blue-green lagoons and tropical rainforests. Dive with sharks, tour ancient temples, journey through forested valleys and relax on a beach with a cocktail.
Tahiti is the largest island in French Polynesia. Visit Papeete, the capital city, for markets, museums and shops that specialize in Tahitian black pearl jewelry. Trek through the Fautaua Valley for the 985-foot (300-meter) Fautaua Waterfall. Take the children to Maui Beach to swim in the shallow water. Go on a four-wheel-drive tour through valleys and rainforests and along the coast. Stay in an overwater bungalow on stilts above the sea.
Most of the islands are surrounded by lagoons, providing ideal settings for water pursuits. Charter a boat for deep-sea fishing. Scuba dive or snorkel in the vast lagoons of Tikehau and Fakarava. Experienced divers venture under the water to study the behavior of different shark species, such as white tip lagoon sharks. Embark on a dolphin and whale-watching expedition from the island of Moorea. Take part in a range of watersports including jet skiing, surfing, windsurfing and kayaking.
Reserve time to visit the other islands. Lounge on Bora Bora’s secluded beaches and see prehistoric temples on Moorea. At the pearl farm on Huahine you’ll see how French Polynesia’s famous black pearls are cultivated.
The volcanic and coral islands of French Polynesia lie in the southwest Pacific Ocean. Most visitors reach the tropical getaway by flying into Tahiti, the only island with an international airport. Travel between the islands by chartered or scheduled flights or by boat.
With a tropical climate, temperatures are warm throughout the year. One of the best times to visit is between May and October when the temperature is comfortable and rainfall is scarce.
French Polynesia is a popular vacation spot, particularly with honeymooners, offering a good combination of excitement, relaxation, beaches, nature and adventure.

The best staff.The snorkeling from over the water bungalows was the best!
Good hotel. 5 minute walk to airport. As others say it is on a hill and the paved road up to it isn’t smooth. There is an Easy Narket nearby for some groceries ( open 7 days 0500-2100)
Great location. Service is very convenience. Their lagoon is the best. Good for snorkeling. The Asian restaurant food is not really Asian food, not recommended.
Excellent service with friendly welcoming staff. Our room was perfect and the food fabulous. The cocktails during happy hour were a bit limited but otherwise we found our stay just great.
Simply the best hotel I’ve ever stayed in! The staff, the food, the room and the grounds were impeccable!
Baby location Good location. Nice pool area. Good curls around. needs updating. The featured restaurant was very overpriced with very average food. Drinks at the pool bar we're $20 a piece as well! We couldn't get the temperature down to be very comfortable in the room.
