Welcome to your own private island!
Isn't it time to reconnect with yourself? On this week-long journey of relaxation, we bring you yoga, meditation, and incredible (yet healthy) food. Expect nothing but the sounds of the waves afar crashing against the reefs, the beauty of the lagoon marine life and the smells, sights and sounds of a private islands fauna and flora coming alive.
This journey of renewal, like all the others in our collection, is designed to bring you inner joy with time set aside for the soul, the body and a re-connection with mother nature. Far from being a boot camp, we bring you a program that is yours to own, with daily activities, yoga, meditation and adventure available at leisure.
While in Tahiti, extend to Bora Bora for a romantic escape, or let us fly you to Rangiroa for unique scuba diving experiences with hammer sharks and dolphins.
Discover the culture and peace of the Polynesian people at our private island estate, in the heart of one of the most beautiful lagoons in the world. You will be accommodated in luxurious yet simple bungalows on the beach, or over the lagoon while being treated through your entire stay like royalty.
Known as the Vanilla Island, Tahaa is one of French Polynesia’s most fertile islands, filled with sweet-smelling vanilla plants and an impressive variety of tropical fruits. Taha'a is also known for its abundance of pearl farms. Yet, it is the kindness and inner beauty of its people that will make you fall in love with Taha'a.
More than the fantastic spa treatments and dinners on the beach, we have designed a journey so you make take the time to re-connect with yourself. Your host and our local partners have designed easy (and optional in attendance) yoga & meditation sessions alongside activities that are good for both the body & the soul.
From the moment you land to the time you (sadly so) depart, we are here to ensure a flawless and hassle-free experience. We have included almost everything so you do not have to worry about budgeting, all while standing ready to assist with the set up of extra tours, activities or romantic escapes.
On arrival in Papeete, you are met and greeted at the airport the Polynesian way (should you already be on the island, we will make arrangements to pick you up at your hotel, and give you the same treatment). We then board a short domestic flight to the island of Raiata. After a short boat ride, you arrive at our private island. A welcome lunch is organized during which we discuss the week-long retreat and the program. After a sunset yoga experience, our welcome dinner is served on the beach.
Our first morning includes a traditional breakfast followed by a restorative yoga session and guided meditation. The rest of the day is at leisure, with an outrigger discovery of the area we invite our guests to join. Before dinner, we meet up with two tribal leaders to discuss the Tahitian take on life and culture, essential to the inner peace they are known for.
This morning, after a sunrise yoga session and a traditional breakfast, we make our way to the reefs where we enjoy a private motu picnic and learn of the Tahitian ways to prepare a fresh ceviche. It is followed by some snorkeling among the local sharks and rays. A sunset yoga session is also organized before dinner.
This morning, after a sunrise yoga session and a traditional breakfast, take some time to relax, swim, snorkel or let us arrange for scuba diving. After lunch, and for guests interested, we depart for Tahaa traverse, a very scenic trail with an abundance of colorful wildflowers, plants, and trees that gradually climbs from Patio to Vaitoetoe Pass and a spectacular overlook point above Haamene Bay. After a very active day, we enjoy a sunset yoga session and dinner on the beach.
After breakfast, a yoga morning and some time at leisure (maybe a one-on-one private meditation session?), we take on the beauty of Taha'a's lagoon while at the helm of your very own Hobbie Cat catamaran. With the assistance of your experienced guide, you will learn the art of using the wind to direct your boat while visiting some of the most beautiful parts of the lagoon. This is a great way to learn patience, control and balance. Before dinner, we enjoy a Tahitian dance lesson.
After a morning at leisure (and a morning yoga session), we make our way to Taha'a Private Island where we take some time to discover their incredible coral gardens. This is an experience not to be missed.
We then make our way to the property where an afternoon of massages and pampering await our guests. This is, after all, another approach to finding your own journey or renewal. After freshening up at the property, we enjoy a traditional Tahitian dinner, entertained by local dancers and flame throwers.
Today, after enjoying a last morning and afternoon at leisure as most international flights do not leave until the evening. Mid to late afternoon, you are transferred to the airport for a short flight to Papeete International Airport. Our travel experts would be delighted to customize an extension to other Tahitian islands such as Bora Bora, Moorea, Tikehau or Rangiroa. Why not discover New Zealand, Australia or Japan with direct flights from Tahiti?
