10 Day Tahitian Explorer
Bora Bora and Tetiaroa
When you think of French Polynesia, the first island that comes to mind is Bora Bora and it's magnificent turquoise blue waters. Bora Bora rises from the velvet blues of the deep water up through the softer hues of the lagoon and into the air that surrounds the island. Its touch on the sea breeze tingles the skin. And its power fills each beat of the heart.
On this 8 day luxury Tahitian escape, you'll stay 4 nights at the InterContinental® Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa hotel where you'll enjoy everything from scuba diving to sunset cruises on the surrounding reefs, while a pristine beach and an award-winning spa invite you to relax. It is the perfect setting in which to experience the romance of the South Pacific.
The next part of your stay will bring you to the extraordinary island of Tetiaroa. A haven for birds, sea turtles and all kinds of marine life, Tetiaroa is treasured among Tahitians who know it as a sacred place. So sacred, that at one time the coconut-dotted white sand beaches and crystalline lagoon of this uninhabited atoll was an exclusive getaway for Tahitian royalty. It’s not surprising that actor Marlon Brando fell under its spell during the filming of “Mutiny on the Bounty” in 1960 and later went on to become its owner. Now you can follow in the wake of kings and Hollywood royalty with a quick 15-minute private charter from Tahiti.
"Tetiaroa is beautiful beyond my capacity to describe. One could say that Tetiaroa is the tincture of the South Seas." - Marlon Brando
