With The Islands of Tahiti re-opening its borders on 15th July, and hope that the Trans-Tasman bubble will extend to the Pacific Islands, we can all sigh in relief that our first international trips could be closer than we thought!
If you’re desperate to get together with friends or family for a well-deserved trip overseas, whether that’s for relaxing week on sun-kissed beaches, a tropical adventure-filled getaway, or a chance to re-energise in beautiful spas, The Islands of Tahiti really are home to the most idyllic islands and resorts, and really do offer something for everyone.
Below is just a handful of the incredible experiences on offer.
Sip cocktails at sunset on Bora Bora
Located in a private cove on Motu To’opua, a small islet located off the main island, the Conrad Bora Bora Nui faces out towards the open ocean with the only unobstructed sunset views on the island, offering a unique vista and magical experience to its guests. Taste the local cuisine with refreshing cocktails after a day of soaking up the sunshine, whether that’s from the restaurant bar or from your very own overwater bungalow.
Help save the reefs on Moorea
Spend an afternoon with the Coral Gardeners, an inspiring group of teenagers saving the reef one coral at a time. Learn about the vast underwater ecosystem and its role in the earth’s wellbeing and then plant your very own piece of healthy coral back into the reef. Stay in the water and explore the neighbouring lagoons and shallows, where you may meet friendly sharks and curious stingrays.
Enjoy a full body massage in Tahiti
Experiencing a true Tahitian spa while visiting The Islands should be high on your priority list – it’s everything you imagine and more. There are many spas dotted around The Islands, with most of the resorts having a spa onsite. The InterContinental Tahiti Resort & Spa is a beautiful option for both accommodation and for the unforgettable spa treatments. With an extensive menu of relaxing and rejuvenating treatments in the Deep Nature Spa, which uses traditional Polynesian techniques and locally sourced oils, you can also enjoy a dip in the infinity pool which looks out across the Pacific Ocean, when your treatments have finished.
