"I absolutely love Huahine, it's so lush and beautiful! But I also love that it's one of the most culturally preserved islands in Tahiti. The last time I was there, we went on a horseback ride through the waist deep waters of Lake Fauna Nui and then up Matairea Hill. As we rode through the jungle on our way to the top of the mountain, we passed several ancient 'marae' (polynesian temples). I'll never forget the experience. It felt as if I'd been transported to a different moment in time. And the view from the top was incredible!"

"My favorite island would have to be Taha'a. I love the fact that it provides the best of both worlds. You could be in a private location with few people around, or you could explore all the island has to offer. Have an adventure snorkeling with sharks, go Jet Skiing, explore the pearl farm and vanilla plantations, or just lounge on the beach and enjoy a spa day. Taha'a provides the perfect getaway from the outside world."

"It's so hard to pick just one! But my favorite activity is an ATV adventure tour on Moorea. You'll learn about the history of the island while getting a beautiful scenic tour of the landscape. You'll see pineapple plantations, waterfalls, and the views from ‘Magic Mountain' and 'Belvedere Point' are absolutely spectacular!"

"There are many islands in French Polynesia and they all have their own personal beauty and special charm, but my personal favorite is Bora Bora. Besides the physical beauty, I am fascinated by the rich history of the island. The island was used as a naval supply facility for the allied forces and the airport that is used today was first built during the Second World War."

"Experiencing Le Taha'a Private Island for the first time was unlike any other place I visited on my first trip down to the islands. The resort has a very authentic Polynesian feel to it with all the local wood and traditional decor. Everything from the overwater accommodations to the tree house feel of the main restaurant was very unique! The spa rooms were built overlooking a natural lake located on the island, and my favorite aspect of my whole experience was the amazing drift snorkeling located right beside the property!"

"The first time I landed at the airport in Bora Bora, I was blown away by its beauty. When you see these unbelievably stunning pictures of the destination, you may be tempted to think they are digitally enhanced. Believe me, they're not. Tahiti is more majestic in person than you could ever imagine. I remember thinking, ‘If I'm this impressed by the view at the airport, what awaits me at the hotels?' I was right… the most brilliant sights were yet to come."

“Le Taha’a Private Island is easily my favorite resort experience. There’s just a feeling when you arrive, you know you will enjoy your time there. The faint smell of vanilla is everywhere, the massages are to die for and the coral garden just a short distance away is some of the best snorkeling I have ever done. My most cherished moment, however, was simply sitting on my private deck and watching the calm waters of the lagoon gently lap at the shores.”
