An Islands of Tahiti vacation is synonymous with luxury. Not just the kind created by an immaculate 5-star resort, but the kind that comes in the form of an idyllic climate, warm, inviting lagoons, soft white sands, and gentle, sweet breezes.
Goway is giving travellers more luxury options than ever to enjoy the glorious Islands of Tahiti, with an expanded line of resorts, cruises, and premium experiences in the South Pacific.
Demand for The Islands of Tahiti is growing all the time, and 2017 saw the opening of new resorts and cruise lines. These include the Conrad Bora Bora, a fully-renovated resort with villas, suites, and the only two-story bungalows in Tahiti, and the InterContinental Thalasso Bora Bora, which has enhanced its luxury experience by adding four two-bedroom Overwater Brando Suites, as well as Overwater Pool Villas that boast private plunge pools on split-level decks.
While some travellers may assume these high-end options are beyond their price range, such accommodation isn’t just for the super-rich. Subject to availability, some resorts allow guests to upgrade their accommodation style and suite during their stay, allowing those on less extravagant budgets to enjoy a taste of the top tier for a night or two without breaking the bank. There are also some great deals to be had in low season, typically from November to April.
Choosing between the Islands of Tahiti can be difficult. Sure, iconic Bora Bora and almost as famous Moorea are honeymoon favourites. But there’s also the garden island of Huahine, vanilla scented Taha’a, and of course the namesake island, Tahiti. A cruise can be a convenient, economical, and oh so splendid way to see the variety an Islands of Tahiti vacation has to offer. Goway offers a range of cruise options through The Islands of Tahiti, including a Haumana Cruise, which sails between Bora Bora and Le Taha’a and carries a maximum of 24 passengers, ensuring an exclusive travel experience through the French Polynesian islands.
Just as enticing as these new in-destination options are, is the news that Air Tahiti Nui, the flagship carrier to French Polynesia, has unveiled their new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft, ready to whisk passengers across the Pacific to Tahiti in unprecedented comfort. Beyond the airplane’s sleek new design, Air Tahiti Nui has also introduced a new Premium Economy Class with just 32 seats, offering an even more comfortable flying experience with extra leg room and relaxation space.
The airline also provides a new Business Class, with 30 full-flat seats perfect for overnight flights from Los Angeles. Air Tahiti Nui had begun phasing out their Airbus A340-300 fleet in November 2018 and are looking to complete their transition in September 2019, which coincides with their 20th anniversary.
“Air Tahiti Nui’s new fleet will give more choice to our clients travelling to French Polynesia,” says Richelle Emefe, Goway Islands General Manager. “It will also complement the 5-star resort products that Goway already offers in the islands, such as The Brando Resort, The Four Seasons, InterContinental, and the St. Regis.”
There truly has never been a better time to enjoy a luxury vacation to The Islands of Tahiti.
