NEW! How you can make your stay more authentic, sustainable and memorable

These tips provide the insider’s knowledge on how travelers can engage with local culture, make their vacations more memorable, promote sustainability in the region, and enhance their overall holiday experience.

  • To make their stays more memorable while they are visiting French Polynesia, travelers can attend one of these local festivals:
    • Heiva I Tahiti – this celebration is held every year from the month of June through July. It is the time of dance shows and local sports competitions including canoe races, fruits porters run, spear competition, and it is the most expected event in the Society Islands. All the groups are working very hard throughout the whole year to present the most beautiful shows. From a display of colors in the costumes, and motion in local dances to mixtures of melodies and rhythms with the drums, both locals and visitors are looking forward to the Heiva every year
    • Marquesas Festival – held every 4 years (with last one in December 2011), the purpose of the festival is to preserve the knowledge of the “Tuhuka” (the Wiseman who held the knowledge of the traditions and the culture). With limited space available and delegations coming from the other parts of the Polynesian Triangle, they gather to celebrate their origins, and it is a great opportunity to meet the locals and experience the islands as an islander. According to our local partner, the event has a special spirit, often referred to as “Mana” which in translation means “the spirit of the ancients”, which triggers a beautiful feeling and strong emotions.
    • Matari’i I Ni’a Festivities – in ancient times, the stars have always played an important role in the Polynesian culture, and the locals were expecting the apparition of a special constellation of stars which was supposed to announce the cycle of abundance. The name of the constellation is “Matari’I I Ni’a”. Today, the apparition of these Pleiades is still celebrated through traditional songs, dances, music, exhibitions, and special movie projections. In opinion of our local partners, this event is similar to the Thanksgiving
    • The Tattoo Festival “Tatau I Tahiti Tattonesia” – tattoo is often the ID card of a Polynesian, since from seeing a tattoo, locals can often tell what part of the Polynesia the holder is from. Bringing about 15,000 travelers, the event not only celebrates the Polynesian tattoos, but tattoos in general. It is believed that the word is actually of Tahitian origin. Captain Cook first used the word “Tattoo” (actual name is “Tatau”) when he related some of his voyages to this part of the world.
  • Visitors are encouraged to contribute to the economy and support local culture by visiting local restaurants and purchasing the locally made arts and crafts. The good thing about Tahiti is that most of these businesses are locally owned, and are available on most of the islands and of course at the Market in Papeete (Tahiti).
  • While the “towels and sheets washing program” is not very reinforced in Tahiti, visitors would be greatly appreciated if they would avoid water wastage, especially in Bora Bora because of the high number of the hotels
  • In Bora Bora, travelers can enhance their dining experience by visiting these local restaurants: Villa Mahana, which is a very exclusive gourmet restaurant that can only seat 16 people, St James – very nice dining spot with casual atmosphere, and La Villa – located at the Sofitel Bora Bora, featuring European food.
  • The “must” excursion to do in Bora Bora are shark and ray watching – the full day “Ultimate shark & ray watching with Polynesian private Motu picnic”, which is one of the best experiences travelers can have in Bora Bora. 4x4 with Vavau Safari is also recommended.
