French Pacific Trade And Economic Outlook

Flights arrive late in the evening so we recommend staying at least one night in Tahiti. Tahiti is a magical place with many options to capture your heart. We have visited and experienced so many of the accomodation these beautiful islands have to offer, let us use that experience to ensure you get the very best from your vacation. Tahiti has a wide range of accommodation options, from villas overlooking the ocean to basic bungalows. Why not stay in the capital, Pape’ete, where you can experience Tahitian nightlife and stroll around the markets. After being re-opened in 2017, the Hilton was rebranded to the Conrad Bora Bora Nui. It was time to go and see what this property has to give!

It would be a mistake to visit Tahiti and not take advantage of the stunningly blue waters with a snorkeling or diving trip. From dolphins and sharks to coral reefs and sea turtles, there are countless different snorkel experiences to choose from, depending on where you swim and what you want to see. Bora Bora is by no means a cheap destination but Our Specialists are Bora Bora experts and we have a huge number and range of resorts we can offer you.

These are all stunning and the perfect places to complete your French Polynesian adventure. Each has at least one very good quality resort which is intimate in size yet provides a full range of facilities and high quality services. Ask Our Specialists to help you work out which atoll is best for you. To get the most out of a Tuamotus visit, you should plan to spend at least four days there.

Archipels Cruises can book you a cabin for a scheduled sailing-catamaran trip. Imagine a deep sea sailing catamaran that can accommodate 8-10 people. It has a spacious saloon, deck space, and an ensuite cabin. The crew will run the boat while you just enjoy the experience. The “Cabin Option” is not a charter, so there is no minimum number of participants required. There are various itinerary options between Tahiti and Bora Bora and while we recommend doing the whole 11 day trip between Papeete and Bora Bora you can join at a port along the way. The international airport is located at Papeete in Tahiti.

The Tahiti Ia Ora Beach Resort, managed by Sofitel, is located on the west coast of Tahiti. It overlooks the lagoon with the island background. The panoramic ocean view is offered from all 146 rooms and 12 of the overwater bungalows. All units come fully equipped with air conditioning, personal safety and a bathroom with separate tub and shower. The resort has 2 restaurants, outrigger boats, a tennis court, and the largest sand bottom swimming pool in South Pacific, located in the middle of a tropical park. The Marquesas Group’s two main islands are very special and offer a unique experience for adventurous travellers who venture this far into French Polynesia.

Which is better Bora Bora or Tahiti?

The road around Tahiti Nui is 115 km but the main hotels and resorts are concentrated in a 25 km band between the Capital Papeete which is on the north west of the island, and south to Punaauia around 15 km away. Between these two points, Faaa International Airport can be found only 5km away from Papeete. We recommend that you plan your time when you are on Tahiti for a few days before going to Moorea, Bora Bora, or other destinations. 35 villas are located on Brando’s white-sand beach, and all-inclusive Brando offers them.

Most days, there are direct flights between Papeete (and both Nuku Hiva or Hiva Oa), which are located approximately 1200 to 1300km north from Papeete. The flight time from Papeete To Nuku Hiva takes 3 hours 45 minutes, while the direct flight from Papeete To Hiva Oa takes 3 hour 50 minutes. Twin Otter flights are available six days a week between Hiva Oa (Nuku Hiva) and take approximately 45 minutes. Hidden in a small bay that can only be accessed by boat, the Royal Huahine offers seclusion although still part of the main island.
