French Polynesia is heaven on earth. With beautiful blue lagoons and silky beaches drenched in year-round sunshine, this formation of exotic islands is exquisite.

The South Pacific – a haven of the world’s bluest waters and silkiest sands. We feel there’s more than one blissful quality about this far off place, one of which being the luxurious options for lodging and play. These jaw-dropping islets are refuges for those who have unspoilt coral reefs and five-star resorts at the very top of their bucket lists. Head to Le Taha’a to relax in overwater bungalows and vistas of turquoise waters as far as the eye can see.
