With its emerald surrounds and vanilla scents, we can’t get enough of Le Taha’a Island Resort & Spa in The Islands of Tahiti for a honeymoon or holiday for couples. We’re delighted to say it’s one of the featured hotels in our Holiday Sale for 2019 and as a result, we wanted to share five reasons why we love this spectacular South Pacific island so much…

1. The coral garden is something else

The warm waters of Tahiti are known to hide some of the world’s best diving spots. One of those can be found at La Taha’a, where beneath its impossibly blue ripples lies a kaleidoscopic coral garden teeming with tropical marine life. All you need to do is float, as the tide carries you right into the heart of the coral, where you can witness an underwater world so vivid it beggars belief.

2. It’s a true Polynesian experience

Each villa and suite at La Taha’a is built with pure Polynesian traditions in mind. Blending thatched pandanus roofs, bamboo and exotic woods, stones and corals, each building represents the time-honoured authenticity you’ve come to see. Twin that with excellent Tahitian hospitality and you’re staying somewhere that resembles the Bora Bora of 20 years ago.

3. Every meal can be a surprise

At Le Taha’a, the surprises keep on coming well after you’ve got there. That’s because its gourmet Ohiri restaurant has no menu, so the chef will astonish you by specially creating amazing French-Polynesian dishes, while the resident sommelier will do the same with a fine selection of diverse wines from the resort’s cellar. It’s a unique dining experience that we think couples will love!


4. Smell the world’s best vanilla

Nicknamed the ‘Vanilla Island’, Le Taha’a is home to vanilla deemed to be the world’s best, sought-after by chefs from around the globe. It’s a delightful scent that’s inescapable across the island and you can explore a vanilla plantation to discover how they’re hand-pollinated and then dried in the sun. A visit to a pearl farm – the island’s other ‘white gold’ – is also a fascinating experience.

5. Its remoteness means romance is guaranteed

Floating on a lagoon with only the distant Bora Bora breaking up the watery horizon, Le Taha’a really feels like an exclusive escape far away from anywhere else. Plus, each of the suites and villas offer a level of privacy that backs up its secluded location, so as a couple, you can feel like you’re the only two people on this exotic island.
