How long

15 nights ideal length

Perfectly formed, volcanic specks in the ocean, so remote you could easily skip over them on a scan of the map, the Pacific Islands embody escapism unlike anywhere else. Cut off from the rest of the world, there’s no place for the everyday here. Instead, you make way for tropical adventure and sunkissed romance. Whether its the adrenaline fringed shores of Hawaii, the impenetrable luxury of French Polynesia – or both; there’s a luxury honeymoon to be had here. Making the most of a little-known flight route connecting Honolulu and Papeete, we’ll show you how to combine these isles in what is undoubtedly the ultimate island-hopping getaway. Spend 15-nights slowly bronzing your skin and exploring some of our favorite islands as you go from green sea turtles in Kauai to pearl farms in Tahaa and watching the sunrise over Haleakala – to watching it set again off the coast of Bora Bora.

Waterfalls & Marine Reserves in Maui

Your Pacific indulgence starts on the island of Maui where you’ll settle in at the intimate Hotel Wailea and spend the next three nights indulging in standout local cuisine at the hotel’s hidden Treehouse restaurant after days exploring the island. Speaking of exploring, tomorrow morning you’ll join an expert naturalist guide on a hike through the island’s dazzling waterfalls and thick jungle, seeking out local flora and fauna, before snorkelling the Molokini marine reserve in the company of tropical fish and bright corals.

Start Planning

See the Sunrise from Haleakala

The next day, it’s an early wake-up call as you head uphill for an unbeatable sunrise from Haleakala Summit – before saddling up to bike back down. From top to bottom, you’ll be left in no doubt as to Maui’s beauty. From Maui, you’ll then skip across to its more adventurous sister, Kauai. Drop your bags at Ko’a Kea Hotel before getting to know the island’s active side as you kayak the Hanalei River, snorkel with Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles and take a guided hike through its little-known corners. For a stylish send-off, we’ll arrange for you to gain an unparalleled perspective with a helicopter tour over the islands on your last day. Soaring over canyons, into craters and past waterfalls, you’ll get up close with iconic sights such as Mana Waiapuna and the Bali Hai Cliffs.

Adventure in French Polynesia

Just like that, it’s farewell Hawaii as you make a beeline south to Tahiti. Spend a night here, before hopping across those tempting waters to the jungled island of Moorea where you’ll spend two nights at the beachfront Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort. Whilst here, we’ll introduce the lesser-known, adrenaline-fuelled side of French Polynesia as you spend days out on the water deep sea fishing, scuba diving and jet skiing. You’ll then get up above it all with a parasailing adventure that will leave you with some of the best views in the archipelago.

Harvest Vanilla & Pearls

From up in the clouds, you may catch a glimpse of your next island destination – Raiatea. Take some time exploring this vanilla-scented isle before catching a boat across the to the private island idyll of Le Taha’a. Bringing barefoot luxury to French Polynesia, Le Taha’a has a relaxed elegance to it which will leave you walking barefoot in the sand and spending long lazy days dipping in and out of the lagoon from your overwater villa. If you can bear to tear yourself away, we’ll take you on a tropical safari where you’ll discover vanilla plantations and pearl farms, picking up a souvenir or two. We’ll then maroon you in style on a small motu with a gourmet picnic lunch, snorkel and mask. Back at Le Taha’a in the evening, you’ll enjoy a romantic dinner for two in a quiet corner of the island, watching the sun go down.

Island Bliss in Bora Bora

For your final stop on this Pacific escapade, we couldn’t have you ending anywhere other than Bora Bora. In the shadow of Mount Otemanu, you’ll spend these final three nights at Conrad Bora Bora Nui. Stretched along a pearlescent strip of sand with nothing and no one to disturb your view, it’s our favorite hideaway. For a break between hilltop spa visits and swim-up cocktails in the pool, we’ll arrange a boat trip with a difference for your last day as you set out on traditional outrigger to meet a few of French Polynesia’s misunderstood residents – its sharks and rays. Have a swim with the friendly fellows before enjoying lunch and a lazy afternoon on a private motu. Back at the hotel, there’s time for one last evening of traditional Polynesian dance and freshly-caught lobster before returning home the next day.
