Tahiti - 118 Islands, 5 Archipelagos and one Paradise! The mention of Tahiti immediately invokes images of an idyllic island paradise, a land of timeless beauty, azure lagoons, intoxicating aromas, untouched beaches and ancient traditions.
Tahiti is one of the world's most secluded and untouched sanctuaries, enticing you to look deep beneath the surface. The legendary name “Tahiti” not only identifies the main island, but also describes the groups of islands and atolls that make up French Polynesia. These exotic islands are ideal settings for a luxury vacation, romantic honeymoon or destination wedding.
Tahiti is a year-round destination, with predictably tropical weather and average temperatures of 79 degrees Fahrenheit. Moorea entices you with her emerald mountains and sandy shores; Bora Bora is outrageously romantic with gentle lagoons of unimaginable blue and turquoise; Huahine, Raiatea, and Taha’a overwhelm you with their lush vanilla plantations, Rangiroa and the Tuamotu Atolls beckon divers with their untouched coral reefs and vibrant marine life; and the remote Marquesas Islands enchant adventurers with their rugged cliffs and soaring mountain peaks.
There are many sides to The Islands of Tahiti. Yet they are all connected by Mana. Mana is a life force and spirit that surrounds us. You can see it. Touch it. Taste it. Feel it. And from the moment you arrive, you will understand why they say these islands are Embraced by Mana.

Spend at least one night in an overwater bungalow
Overwater bungalows represent the ultimate level of indulgence: luxury in paradise. Let yourself be rocked to sleep by the water lapping against the stilts, watch fish dance through the glass panel in the floor, jump off your terrace into a natural aquarium and wake up to breakfast brought to you in a traditional outrigger canoe: who wouldn't want to make this dream a reality?
