Luxury Travel to French Polynesia

South Pacific Gems

Scattered across the middle of the South Pacific Ocean are the idyllic islands of French Polynesia. With deep turquoise lagoons, white sandy beaches and dramatic green volcanoes, they are everything you would expect from a far-flung tropical destination.

An Overseas Collective of France, French Polynesia consists of 118 islands, 67 of which are inhabited. Occupying an area larger than Europe, it is divided into five groups of islands – the Society Islands, the Tuamotu Archipelago, Gambier Islands, Marquesas Islands and Austral Islands.

Lying within the Society Islands – named after Captain James Cook’s scientific expedition for the Royal Society – are some of French Polynesia’s most well-known islands. Tahiti is the largest and most densely populated, and serves as a springboard for exploring the other islands. Bora Bora is known the world over for its exquisite beaches and luxury accommodation, making it a popular choice for honeymooners – although anyone who visits is sure to be seduced by its beauty.

Whichever island you choose to stay on, you will be rewarded with crystal-clear waters teeming with marine life making swimming, snorkelling and diving the activities of choice. Those who enjoy exploring the great outdoors will love hiking through the lush volcanic interiors and discovering hidden waterfalls. Somewhere this spectacular deserves to be experienced in style, and we have hand-picked our favorite lodges and resorts to offer you an exclusive, luxury and unforgettable stay.

Whatever you want from your South Pacific tour, our team of expert travel designers are ready to help.

When to go

The islands of French Polynesia are beautiful year-round, thanks to its balmy tropical climate. The dry season runs from May to October – also known as the austral winter season. Daytime temperature hover around 28°C. The wet season, or the austral summer, is from November to April and you can expect intense sunshine alongside rainy spells, making it fairly humid.

Some of my most memorable travel experiences include kayaking in Antarctica, horse-back riding in El Calafate in Argentina, gorilla tracking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda, climbing Africa’s highest mountain Kilimanjaro and getting up close and personal with polar bears in arctic Canada.

Travel Designer

I absolutely love the Hunter Valley wine region just outside Sydney, and snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef truly is an experience of a lifetime.
