More Tuamotus & Society Islands - 10-Nights

Wouldn't it be great if there was a voyage that combined the uber-romantic delights of Bora Bora and the Society Islands with the coral-reef euphoria of the Tuamotu Archipelago? This 10-night itinerary is just that-with the added allure of a blissful beach day at our own private islet in the Taha'a lagoon, a visit to the Eden-like island of Huahine, and a call in Raiatea, the most sacred of all Polynesian isles.

Highlights

  • Relish an overnight in Fakarava; an atoll renowned for its snorkeling and diving, it is one of just seven UNESCO-listed Marine Biosphere Reserves in the world.
  • Bask Crusoe-style on a pink-sand beach, visit a Blue Lagoon in a blue lagoon, spot Tuamotu sandpipers at a seabird sanctuary, or consider a SCUBA Motu Nuhi Nuhi excursion-all in Rangiroa.
  • Discover our two private beaches-one on Bora Bora enjoyed during an overnight visit, the other on our private islet nestled in the Taha'a lagoon.

    Day 6 - Bora Bora, Society Islands

    Explore lush peaks, wander white-sand beaches, and marvel at the iconic views of Mount Otemanu. Take the plunge with a SCUBA excursion to see the island's colorful coral reefs, enjoy a sunset jetboat ride, or spend a lazy afternoon on our private beach*. Like a priceless Paul Gauguin painting come to life, storied Bora Bora is colorful and unforgettable. The landscape alone will have you searching for adequate adjectives, especially once you see the lagoon-'turquoise' just doesn't do it justice.

    Day 8 - Raiatea, Society Islands

    Blanketed in a lush landscape dotted with waterfalls, fertile valleys, and the cloud-capped Mt. Temehani, Raiatea is Polynesia's most sacred island; it was from here that the earliest migrations set forth to settle in Hawaii, New Zealand, and beyond. The island boasts a rich Maohi history-it is home to the UNESCO-listed Marae Taputapuatea archaeological site-verdant mountains ideal for hiking, and a stunning lagoon perfect for snorkeling, swimming, and soaking up the heavenly tranquility.

Les Gauguines are also on hand to share musical entertainment and Polynesian crafts.

    Day 10 - Moorea, Society Islands

    Step into a vibrant, colorful world in bright and beautiful Moorea, which welcomes you with azure lagoons, impossibly fresh tropical fruits, stunning mountain peaks and palm-fringed beaches.
