The fantastical landscape of your French Polynesian honeymoon itinerary surpasses your daydreams, with secluded thatched-roof bungalows overlooking the sapphire waters of the South Pacific. The sounds of a gentle ukulele offer a morning serenade. In the evening, you watch fire-jugglers, and traditional dancers perform on the soft sands of the beach to the rhythms of beating drums. Colorful fish glow against the artistic formations of the sprawling coral. Mountains crown the islands with remnants...
Papeete – A Slice of Island Paradise
The lush palms and tall grasses of Papeete shimmer with emerald hues as your flight descends into the airport. The Pacific Ocean shimmers with iridescent indigo colors, as thatched-roof huts rise out of the jetties along the marina. Boat masts wade in the gentle waters as the palm trees rustle in the calm breeze. Your flight arrives at Faa’a International Airport. Colorful impressionist works by famous French painter Gauguin decorate the airy galleries in the eponymous museum. Dramatic wooden Tikis rise out of the lavish gardens and entertain visitors with ancient myths and tales warning people not to move the unforgettable carved artworks.
The aroma of sweet salt water permeates the air. The bustling life of the Papeete Market creates a swirl of color emanating from handmade sarongs and shell necklaces, woven hats, and the array of produce picked from the trees and bushes around the countryside. The sweet, juicy aroma of coconuts and pineapples drifts beneath the banisters, leading locals to the aisles of fishmongers and butchers. Pearl shops line the lanes of the upstairs and caves offer rich espressos and vivacious, citrusy smoothies. Your private transfer greets you at customs and escorts you to a secluded resort, offering you the romance of a private view of the lapping water and the charm of slow-paced island life blending the essential cultures of the islands of French Polynesia.

Your private transfer greets you at the airport and escorts you to a private resort overlooking the black sands of the tranquil island. The remainder of the day is yours to relax on the serene beach, linger in the waters of the quiet pool, or visit the vibrant marketplace in the heart of town that combines the island cultures from across French Polynesia.
The next morning, you travel into the heart of the jungle terrain on a private 4x4 excursion in search of waterfalls, lagoons, and spectacular island views.

Take to the mountains for pristine views and a fun adventure while on a scenic jeep safari in search of flora, avifauna, and panoramas, eventually ending at a pineapple distillery. Next, you fly from Moorea to Bora Bora. Your private transfer escorts you along the water to a narrow islet off the coast of the main island framed by a lagoon to the west and the South Pacific to the east. Upon arriving at your resort, you can partake in a couple’s spa treatment to ease into the unforgettable luxury of the island. Dive into the ocean to snorkel amongst the coral, schools of fish, and giant manta rays. In the evening, you have a romantic couple’s dinner, listening to the water lap against the beach.
Circle the coastal roads and discover hidden coves or inland trails on a full-day bicycle tour of Bora Bora to enjoy the island at your preferred pace.
