Ia Orana, Welcome‌ Verdant mountains rising up from turquoise coral fringed lagoons, French chic and a touch of luxury all contribute to making The Islands of Tahiti irresistible. What we often simply refer to as Tahiti is actually five archipelagos known as French Polynesia, officially still part of France. Tahiti is the largest of the Society Islands, which also includes the gorgeous islands of Moorea and Bora Bora. The iconic beauty of The Islands of Tahiti is well known. Coral reefs, abundant with marine life, protect impossibly blue shallow lagoons - perfect places for swimming, watersports or simply admiring from an idyllic stretch of beach. Make a dream come true and find yourself in an overwater bungalow, waking up in luxury and diving into warm turquoise waters straight from your own deck. The Islands of Tahiti offer a unique and memorable experience - Enjoy!

Good to know

Travel Tips French Polynesia is also known as The Islands of Tahiti. There are 118 islands comprising French Polynesia, of which Tahiti is the main island and the location of the capital city of Papeete. Faa’a International Airport is located on the island of Tahiti approximately 5 kilometres west of Papeete. Air Tahiti Nui is the international airline to The Islands of Tahiti. It offers direct flights between Auckland and Papeete. Air New Zealand also offers direct flights from Auckland to Papeete. International flights arrive on the island of Tahiti. Due to crossing the International Dateline, most flights from Auckland arrive the day before they depart. Holiday packages in French Polynesia will usually require one night in Papeete before travelling to another island the following morning. Most passengers returning to New Zealand will require one night in Papeete prior to departure, as flights leave early in the morning. Air Tahiti is a private, domestic airline which links all five archipelagos. Travel between some islands, such as Tahiti to Moorea, can be made by high-speed ferry. We recommend booking the same hotel chain throughout your visit, as ‘Island Combo’ specials are often available. We also recommend booking transfers throughout your visit as many resorts are located on islets within the lagoon, only accessible by boat.

Passports & Visas New Zealand passport holders do not currently require a visa for a stay as a tourist of up to three months but must hold a passport with six months validity beyond the date of departure from French Polynesia. If you are a non-New Zealand passport holder please check your visa requirements with the appropriate Embassy or Consular office.

Currency The local currency is the French Pacific Franc (XPF). There are plenty of ATMs and banks in Tahiti however access can be difficult in the outer islands. Major credit cards are accepted in most hotels, restaurants, boutiques and other tourist establishments. We do recommend you carry some local currency for smaller purchases. Note: NZD$1 = 70 XPF approximately

Seasonality While seasons may vary for each resort, generally speaking, the following seasons apply: High Season: April - October & December - January Low Season: Rest of the year Seasonal surcharges, supplements, compulsory meals and/or transfers may apply during high season or at particular properties. For all hotels on The Islands of Tahiti a compulsory local tax of approximately 150-200XPF per person per night must be paid directly to the hotels.

Climate The Islands of Tahiti enjoy an even climate year-round with daytime temperatures around 28-30°C, dropping slightly in the evening. The weather is warmer and more humid from November through to May and drier and cooler from June until October. Year round, the sun rises between 5 and 6am and sets between 5.30 and 7pm. There is very little difference between high and low tide in Tahiti.
