When Marlon Brando secured a 99-year lease of Tetiaro in the 1960s, he planned to use the island as a private vacation spot and conservation area. It’s unlikely he would’ve imagined that half a century later, the eponymous resort would be voted the world’s best by Conde Nast. Whilst much has changed, Tetiaro’s status as a pristine sanctuary for endangered flora and fauna has endured; today the island is home to The Islands of Tahiti’s largest population of Green Sea Turtles. This is why you won’t find overwater bungalows at this resort – they’re big on sustainability. But don’t be fooled – luxury is still at the heart of everything they do.
Reachable only by air, The Brando epitomizes exclusive luxury to such a degree that in 2017 the island welcomed outgoing US President Barack Obama, who spent a month writing his memoirs in the privacy afforded by Tetiaro’s lush palm trees and secluded beachside villas. This fact shows the level of privacy that you’ll enjoy here – it’s truly one of the most exclusive resorts in the world.
You’ll head to Raiatea via a private helicopter, where you’ll board your exclusive catamaran for an exquisite three-night stay on board. You’ll be well and truly looked after on this adventure, with a skipper, crew, and chef to take good care of every part of your stay, and cater to your every whim. Your floating home for these three days will come pre-stocked with all your favorite food and beverages, as well as a variety of small water vehicles and luxury features, tailored to your specific desires. You’ll enjoy the unbridled freedom of exclusive luxury.
Spacious but nimble, the vessel will take you to sparkling lagoons and peaceful bays that cannot be reached from land or by bigger boats, giving you unrestricted access to Raiatea, Mo’orea and Tahiti’s flourishing and abundant natural beauty. Head into uninhabited coves and untouched shores, carving out your own Polynesian adventure, exactly how you wish it to be.
If you were to draw a picture of paradise, it would probably look a lot like the St.Regis. Occupying a private island on the Bora Bora atoll, the resort is one of the largest and most luxurious, with accommodations ranging from secluded beachside villas to the South-Pacific’s largest over-water bungalows. No detail has been forgotten at the resort, and the most exclusive villa types also include complimentary 24/7 butler service, allowing you to forget the stresses of daily life and focus on absorbing the breathtaking views that surround this hidden slice of heaven. Nestled in the heart of the island, the Lagoonarium offers a unique snorkeling and conservation experience that you won’t find anywhere else in the archipelago.
You may instead wish to stay at the Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora. Nestled in the embrace of Bora Bora’s Mount Otemanu, this 5-star resort offers the ultimate in Polynesian luxury. Enjoy sunsets from your private pool, stargaze from exclusive beaches, or immerse in the lagoon’s vibrant marine life. The spa, inspired by Kahaia trees, offers transformative treatments that will leave you in a state of complete and utter relaxation. You can stay in an overwater villa or opt for the three-bedroom premier beachfront villa estate, which spans over a full acre and features a private beach as well as a dedicated villa host who will ensure your every wish is taken care of.
At either hotel, we’ll organize a private helicopter ride back to Tahiti where you can begin your journey home.
We can arrange a plethora of luxurious activities and adventures for you to enjoy during your stay – another reason why this itinerary is a cut above the others.
Enjoy a private sunset cruise around the islands of French Polynesia. Head to an exclusive island for private dining under the sparkling moonlight. Tuck into a floating canoe breakfast served by a friendly local in traditional islander attire. Go on a guided scuba diving tour and spot sharks and sting rays beneath the crystal-clear waters. Whatever your travel aspirations are, we can make them happen. And as this trip is completely tailor-made, you can extend or shorten your stays on the various islands to suit you.
French Polynesia covers over two million square miles of the South Pacific Ocean and is comprised of 118 islands spread over five great archipelagos.
The Society Islands are the most well known, consisting of Tahiti, Mo’orea, Bora Bora, Huahine, Raiatea and Taha’a; The Tuamotu Atolls or Tahiti’s Strand of Pearls, include the atolls of Rangiroa, Manihi, Tikehau, and Fakarava; and then there are the Marquesas, the Mysterious Islands which thrilled Impressionist painter Paul Gauguin all those years ago. The Austral and Gambier island groups are far-flung and isolated, a hidden treasure of traditional communities and pristine islets.
The island of Bora Bora is French Polynesia’s crowning jewel of luxury. Ringed by an aqua lagoon and coral reef, this scenic atoll’s lush peaks rise dramatically from the sea.
Stay in an overwater bungalow with glass floors that let you peer into the colorful underwater world beneath you. Savor sunset views from your private plunge pool or the resort’s open-air restaurant. Go snorkeling with gentle manta rays, or book a private boat tour of the island. Pamper yourself with massage and body treatments at the spa. Bora Bora’s beauty, isolation, and indulgent resorts make for a luxurious tropical escape.
Known as The Sacred Island, Raiatea is revered in French Polynesia for its natural and spiritual beauty. Explore ancient marae temples shrouded in mysticism and legends. Hike through lush jungle to thundering waterfalls. Kayak or snorkel Raiatea’s protected lagoon, home to exotic marine life and sacred sea turtles.
Mo’orea is Tahiti’s nearest island neighbor, just a short ferry ride away. With pine-covered mountains and curved white sand beaches, Mo’orea retains a natural beauty that feels truly special. Luxury resorts blend seamlessly into the landscape, with overwater bungalows perched above coral gardens.
Dine on the catch of the day at a beachside grill, before watching the sun sink into the sea. Explore Mo’orea’s verdant interior on guided hikes past waterfall pools and through lush plantations of vanilla, pineapple, and coffee. Snorkel with sea turtles in the protected bays. With fewer crowds than Tahiti, Mo’orea offers a more peaceful Polynesian paradise.
