French Polynesia, a set of more than 100 islands in the Pacific Ocean, is an idyllic tropical oasis that has become a popular destination for romantic travel—think honeymoons and anniversaries—thanks to the allure of private overwater bungalows. The most traveled archipelago in the famed Pacific chain is the Society Islands, which is divided into two groups, Windward and Leeward islands, and is home to vacation hot spots like Bora Bora, Moorea and Taha’a.
While Bora Bora often steals the spotlight in French Polynesia thanks to its familiar name recognition, the following luxurious properties across the Society Islands are musts to consider for anyone planning a visit.
Le Taha’a Island Resort
A Relais & Chateaux property, Le Taha’a promises rejuvenation of the mind, body and spirit to anyone who visits. The best part? A secluded beach sits at the far end of the island that not many guests venture down to. It’s the perfect spot to watch the sunset with a cocktail in hand.
A short plane ride from Papeete, the airport on mainland Tahiti, followed by a 35-minute private boat escort brings guests to Le Taha’a, a tranquil paradise made for relaxation. Located on the exclusive Motu Tautau island, which faces its namesake island of Taha’a on one side and the unmistakable silhouette of Bora Bora on the other. The resort is Polynesian-inspired, both in architecture and style, and hosts only 57 suites and beach villas, giving it a boutique feel for guests.
