French Polynesia is one of our most popular destinations. It’s an unspoilt paradise in the South Pacific. Comprised of over a hundred islands, it’s a French overseas territory. French Polynesia has an almost mystical appeal. It’s home to the Brando Hotel, one of the world’s most exclusive and formerly owned by Marlon Brando himself. He helped put French Polynesia on the map when filmed Mutiny on the Bounty in Tahiti and fell in love with it.
Since then, it’s become one of the top luxury tourist destinations. This trip will maximise your experience of French Polynesia. You’ll visit three islands and stay in an iconic overwater bungalow at the hotel that first made them. This is your chance to discover one of the more remote parts of the world in style.
