Because of the diversity of island options, The Islands of Tahiti are rarely crowded, and large swaths of the islands appear untouched by man. Whether you spend your time lounging at an overwater bungalow on Bora Bora, hiking the lush peaks and waterfalls of Tahiti, or sailing the lagoon of Raiatea and Taha’a, you’ll never want to stop exploring The Islands of Tahiti. 

There are few destiantions in the world that have the same appeal to honeymooners as Bora Bora. Crystal clear lagoons, white sandy beaches, romantic overwater bungalows overlooking lush mountains - it's no wonder why Bora Bora is a dream destination for many brides and grooms.  Our selection of Bora Bora honeymoon packages offer a wide variety of ideas suited for various interests and budgets. If you don't find your ideal vacation, our travel advisors can suggest various custom-made itineraries better suited your needs. We will help you choose the best resort and room type, arrange flights and airport Meet and Greet, coordinate transfers, request honeymon amenties and organize meals and excursions.     The lagoons offer numerous activities: excursions to a deserted “motu”, swimming with sharks and rays, relaxing with a couple's massage by the lagoon, enjoing a romantic dinner on the beach... We'd be happy to pre-arrange and coordinate all activities for your Bora Bora honeymoon.   We'll make sure that nothing is overlooked and that your Bora Bora honeymoon is everything you dreamed it would be.   
Home to the capital city of Papeete, Tahiti is the economic center of French Polynesia. Since all flights arrive through Faa'a International Airport, your tailored Tahiti vacation will begin and end in Papeete. While you may be tempted to jet off immediately to the other islands, we recommend staying at least a day or two. Tahiti strikes an interesting contrast to some of the more quiet, secluded islands in the region; and with a selection of wonderful and convenient Tahiti resorts available, you will never regret staying.
Well, fortunately for you and your future spouse, there isn’t a bad time to visit Bora Bora. This is another reason that Bora Bora is a great honeymoon destination – because you can get married any time of the year and take off for your honeymoon immediately following the ceremony. Considering Bora Bora’s proximity to the equator and its Oceanic location, “summer” and “winter” don’t really exist. The average high temperature in Bora Bora is 30 C (85F) and the average low is 25 C (77 F). Regardless of when you visit only material differences throughout the year are the hours of sunshine and the quantity of rain. The driest month (August) sees a couple inches of rain while the wettest month (December) sees almost a foot. August similarly sees the most sunshine and January happens to be the darkest month.

Although various explorers had refused to get involved in tribal conflicts, the mutineers from Bounty offered their services as mercenaries and furnished arms to the family which became the Pōmare Dynasty. The chief Tū knew how to use their presence in the harbours favoured by sailors to his advantage. As a result of his alliance with the mutineers, he succeeded in considerably increasing his supremacy over the island of Tahiti.

Tahiti has a freeway that runs across the west coast. This freeway starts in Arue and continues across the Papeete urban area. Then it continues along the west coast of Tahiti Nui through smaller villages. The freeway turns east toward Taravao where Tahiti Nui meets Tahiti Iti. Tahiti's west coast freeway keeps going until Teahupo'o where the freeway becomes a thin paved road.
Apart from a fertile coastal plain, the terrain of Tahiti is jagged and mountainous, rising to Mount Orohena (7,339 feet [2,237 metres]) on Tahiti Nui and to Roniu (4,340 feet [1,323 metres]) on Tahiti Iti. Many swift streams, the largest of which is the Papenoo in the north, descend to the coast. The island, 33 miles (53 km) long, is fringed by coral reefs and lagoons. Natural vegetation includes coconut palms, pandanus, hibiscus, and tropical fruit trees.
The Society archipelago is a hotspot volcanic chain consisting of ten islands and atolls. The chain is oriented along the N. 65° W. direction, parallel to the movement of the Pacific Plate. Due to the plate movement over the Society hotspot, the age of the islands decreases from 5 Ma at Maupiti to 0 Ma at Mehetia, where Mehetia is the inferred current location of the hotspot as evidenced by recent seismic activity. Maupiti, the oldest island in the chain, is a highly eroded shield volcano with at least 12 thin aa flows, which accumulated fairly rapidly between 4.79 and 4.05 Ma. Bora Bora is another highly eroded shield volcano consisting of basaltic lavas accumulated between 3.83 and 3.1 Ma. The lavas are intersected by post-shield dikes. Tahaa consists of shield-stage basalt with an age of 3.39 Ma, followed by additional eruptions 1.2 Ma later. Raiatea consists of shield-stage basalt followed by post-shield trachytic lava flows, all occurring from 2.75 to 2.29 Ma. Huahine consists of two coalesced basalt shield volcanoes, Huahine Nui and Huahine Iti, with several flows followed by post-shield trachyphonolitic lava domes from 3.08 to 2.06 Ma. Moorea consists of at least 16 flows of shield-stage basalt and post-shield lavas from 2.15 to 1.36 Ma. Tahiti consists of two basalt shield volcanoes, Tahiti Nui and Tahiti Iti, with an age range of 1.67 to 0.25 Ma.[4]

Tahiti and The Islands of Tahiti are located in the southern part of the Pacific Ocean. They are just as much south of the equator as Hawaii is north of that line, and they are roughly the same distance from California as they are from Australia. Only an eight-hour direct flight from California. For perspective, Papeete is 2,545 miles from Auckland, New Zealand, 9,554 miles from London and 4,117 miles from Los Angeles in the United States.

Tahiti really is the hub of all cultural activity. Every July, the annual Heiva I Tahiti transforms the island into a spectacular celebration of Polynesian culture and dance. Year round, you can also catch an authentic Tahitian dance show at the InterContinental Resort every Friday and Saturday night. Permanent historical fixtures include the house of James Norman Hall, Point Venus, the Museum of Tahiti and Her Islands, the Paul Gauguin Museum, and the Harrison Smith Botanical Gardens. These can all be seen on a guided Circle Island Tour, or you can rent a car and explore the island at your leisure.
The Islands of Tahiti are a sanctuary that serve as the perfect canvas for personal discovery and reconnecting with the beauty of raw nature. Tahiti and the Tahitian Islands are the ideal background for cosmopolitan and confident travelers seeking authentic experiences — a destination, not a location — and The Islands of Tahiti deliver on all counts.

Natural materials like wood, bamboo, stone, and ropes are featured by quality, traditional architecture, the true identity of this resort with a Boutique Hotel vibe.

Crystal clear water, fine sand and shallow water over several meters make swimming a pleasure for young and old alike.

If you’re not sure about having an all inclusive Bora Bora package (you plan on taking a couple of excursions during the day or you don’t think you will be hungry enough for lunch every day), a good alternative would be “Half Board”, which means Breakfast and Dinner are included. Any Bora Bora vacation package can be adjusted from all inclusive to half board and vice versa. 

Tahitian cultures included an oral tradition that involved the mythology of gods, such as 'Oro and beliefs, as well as ancient traditions such as tattooing and navigation. The annual Heivā Festival in July is a celebration of traditional culture, dance, music and sports including a long distance race between the islands of French Polynesia, in modern outrigger canoes (va'a).

Cook returned to Tahiti between 15 August and 1 September 1773, greeted by the chiefs Tai and Puhi, besides the young ari'i Vehiatua II and his stepfather Ti'itorea. Cook anchored in Vaitepiha Bay before returning to Point Venus where he met Tu, the paramount chief. Cook picked up two passengers from Tahiti during this trip, Porea and Ma'i, with Hitihiti later replacing Porea when Cook stopped at Raiatea. Cook took Hitihiti to Tahiti on 22 April, during his return leg. Then, Cook departed Tahiti on 14 May 1774.[11]:263–279,284,290,301–312

Before the arrival of the Europeans the island was divided into different chiefdoms, very precise territories dominated by a single clan. These chiefdoms were linked to each other by allegiances based on the blood ties of their leaders and on their power in war. The most important clan on the island was the Teva,[9] whose territory extended from the peninsula in the south of Tahiti Nui. The Teva Clan was composed of the Teva i Uta (Teva of the Interior) and the Teva i Tai (Teva of the Sea), and was led by Amo and Purea.[10]
Continue your trip eastward and you’ll find Taha’a. The island is very small and surrounded by rock islands called “motu.” More than 80% of Tahitian vanilla is produced on Taha’a and the aroma of this rare and precious spice is carried on the breeze.  Taha’a shares a lagoon with an island farther south named Raiatea. It is the spiritual center of Polynesia and home to the most sacred marae (or stone temple) Taputapuatea, a recently named UNESCO World Heritage Site.  You will find some ceremonies performed here as well as the cloud-capped Mount Temehani, home to an endemic flower called “tiare apetahi.” Huahine is directly east of the northern tip of Raiatea. It is actually two islands connected by a bridge and surrounded by lagoons. There are eight villages located here but they are very small, and the rest of Huahine is largely untouched. Some call it Tahiti’s best-kept secret. Moorea is located between Huahine and Tahiti and is easily accessed from the island of Tahiti by a short ferry ride. There, you’ll find sharp peaks that rise into the sky, delicate waterfalls, ferns and a series of happy, pastel-colored villages that make you think of one of the Tahitian people’s favorite phrases, la vie heureuse, a happy life.
This emigration, across several hundred kilometres of ocean, was made possible by using outrigger canoes that were up to twenty or thirty meters long and could transport families as well as domestic animals. In 1769, for instance, James Cook mentions a great traditional ship (va'a) in Tahiti that was 33 m (108 ft) long, and could be propelled by sail or paddles.[7] In 2010, an expedition on a simple outrigger canoe with a sail retraced the route back from Tahiti to Asia.[8]

On 26 October 1788, HMS Bounty, under the command of Captain William Bligh, landed in Tahiti with the mission of carrying Tahitian breadfruit trees (Tahitian: 'uru) to the Caribbean. Sir Joseph Banks, the botanist from James Cook's first expedition, had concluded that this plant would be ideal to feed the African slaves working in the Caribbean plantations at very little cost. The crew remained in Tahiti for about five months, the time needed to transplant the seedlings of the trees. Three weeks after leaving Tahiti, on 28 April 1789, the crew mutinied on the initiative of Fletcher Christian. The mutineers seized the ship and set the captain and most of those members of the crew who remained loyal to him adrift in a ship's boat. A group of mutineers then went back to settle in Tahiti.
When, on 7 December 1821, Pōmare II died, his son Pōmare III was only eighteen months old. His uncle and the religious people therefore supported the regency, until 2 May 1824, the date on which the missionaries conducted his coronation, a ceremony unprecedented in Tahiti. Taking advantage of the weakness of the Pōmare, local chiefs won back some of their power and took the hereditary title of Tavana (from the English word 'governor'). The missionaries also took advantage of the situation to change the way in which powers were arranged, and to make the Tahitian monarchy closer to the English model of a constitutional monarchy. They therefore created the Tahitian Legislative Assembly, which first sat on 23 February 1824.
Each district or clan was organised around their marae, or stone temple. Anne Salmond quotes John Orsmond, an early missionary, as stating, "Marae were the sanctity and glory of the land, they were the pride of the people of these islands." This was especially true for the ancestral and national marae associated with the royal line. "It was the basis of royalty; It awakened the gods; It fixed the red feather girdle of the high chiefs."[11]:23,26–27

In July, the Heivā festival in Papeete celebrates Polynesian culture and the commemoration of the storming of the Bastille in Paris. After the establishment of the CEP (Centre d'Experimentation du Pacifique) in 1963, the standard of living in French Polynesia increased considerably and many Polynesians abandoned traditional activities and emigrated to the urban centre of Pape'ete. Even though the standard of living is elevated (due mainly to French foreign direct investment), the economy is reliant on imports. At the cessation of CEP activities, France signed the Progress Pact with Tahiti to compensate the loss of financial resources and assist in education and tourism with an investment of about US$150 million a year from the beginning of 2006.
