The Islands of Tahiti

Immersed in a world of majestic mountain peaks, turquoise waters and white-sand beaches, visitors to our islands create memories through authentic experiences that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. For centuries, the Tahitian people have referred to this as “Mana”. Mana is a life force and spirit that surrounds and connects all living things. You can see it. Touch it. Taste it. Feel it. And from the moment you arrive, you will understand why we say our islands are Embraced by Mana.  https://youtu.be/hJdbCCYxxAA?t=32

The Islands of Tahiti are located in the heart of the South Pacific, just eight hours from Los Angeles and on the same side of the International Dateline as North America. In addition to the destination’s natural beauty, tranquility, and privacy, The Islands of Tahiti offer an array of diverse experiences combined with rich Tahitian culture.

Come discover the rich stories of our people, our culture and our heritage while experiencing the world-renowned iconic beauty that has lured travelers for centuries. Surrounded by pristine, crystal clear blue waters, the 118 islands and atolls offer natural beauty, authentic island culture and unique French Polynesian style. Each island offers a variety of activities and accommodation experiences from luxurious resorts with overwater bungalows, to family pensions to sailing via private charter or scheduled cruise. From our more well known islands of Tahiti, Moorea and Bora Bora, to Tetiaroa, Taha’a, Raiatea, Huahine, Tikehau, Rangiroa, Fakarava, to the Marquesas, Gambier and Austral archipelagoes, the country covers more than two million square miles of the South Pacific Ocean.

Easier to travel to than you might imagine, Tahiti’s Faa’a International Airport is under 8 hours by air from Los Angeles (LAX) airport, with daily nonstop flights. As far south of the equator as Hawaii is north, The Islands of Tahiti are halfway between California and Australia, on the same side of the International Date Line as North America, and in the same time zone as Hawaii. Spanning an area in the South Pacific as large as Western Europe, the total land mass of all the islands adds up to an area only slightly larger than the tiny state of Rhode Island.

Tahiti@FriendsTravel.com 24/7/365 Honeymoons, Romance, Family

Le Meridien Bora Bora, to find out what’s new at this luxury island property. Here’s what we learned.

The 12-year old property has just undergone a new “creation” phase, adding on a host of new services and amenities. While the property caters mostly to honeymooners and couples (we learned that 80 percent of guests are honeymooners), more and more returning lovebirds are flocking back and bringing their children.

To accommodate families the property has built four new villas, which can hold up to four adults and four children. Each villa has its own private pool and access to the beach and lagoon.

The hotel has also built a brand new over-water chapel and designed a special ceremony.  Note that the paperwork for U.S. citizens to have a legal marriage in Tahiti is time consuming, start early. The hotel recommends that the chapel be used for couples who want to recreate a ‘vow’ experience after being legally wed back home. Of course, if the paperwork doesn’t bother you, legal marriages can be performed. Coming in April guests will have the option of a special underwater ceremony, where bride and groom will be outfitted in scuba gear and will take their vows with the fish.

A new infinity pool with Jacuzzi was also recently installed.

But the Manager was most excited about the hotel’s environmental efforts. For years the property has been a sea turtle sanctuary, rehabilitating injured sea turtles and breeding new ones to release into the wild. The hotel is in the process of constructing an ecological center for guests to learn about the hotel’s efforts.

The hotel underent renovations starting in October 2010, which include public spaces and guest rooms. The renovations were done in February 2011.  Reservations Tahiti@FriendsTravel.com 24/7/365
