A luxury honeymoon in The Islands of Tahiti

You’ll be able to enjoy scuba diving, snorkeling, paddleboard, kayak and almost every other watersport you can imagine. You can opt for a bungalow or a suite with a private pool, on the beach or in a tropical garden. Or perhaps one of the famous overwater bungalows with your own private access directly into the lagoon. The hotels also have their own spa which offers beauty and well-being care, and a traditional Tahitian massage with monoï oil.
One of the most luxurious and exclusive hotels in The Islands of Tahiti is The Brando Hotel, on the truly magnificent atoll of Tetiaroa. A small plane takes you directly to this island paradise, where the only residents are in the 35 beachside villas, each with its own private pool and private beach. The former residence of Tahitian royal families, Tetiaroa has lost nothing of its regal splendour. You’ll especially enjoy swimming in the warm and clear sea, surrounded by tropical fish, kayaking on the picture postcard lagoon, and pampering in the hotel spa and well-being center.
