The experience you have in French Polynesia is unmatched – almost indescribable. 

Overwater bungalows, balconies overlooking multi-hued sunsets… No responsibilities or plans for the day other than to soak in the beauty of the world around you. There is a laid-back happiness with the world that lives deep within the best beach towns, and all of French Polynesia has that lightning in a bottle.

Just imagine: To be on the other side of the world, taking in the mossy green and bright turquoise, the captivating beauty of the islands.

French Polynesia is an overseas collectivity of France located in the South Pacific Ocean. It is composed of a group of islands and atolls, and it is known for its stunning natural beauty, pristine beaches, turquoise lagoons, and vibrant marine life. 

Its unparalleled natural beauty is exemplified by the stunning landscapes, including lush green mountains, white sandy beaches, and crystal-clear lagoons. The breathtaking scenery, with dramatic volcanic peaks and vibrant coral reefs, creates a picture-perfect tropical paradise.

One thing about French Polynesia is that each island is remote, offering a sense of exclusivity and privacy. With every luxurious resort and private villa nestled in secluded locations, there is a sense of tranquility that allows you to enjoy intimate moments in a breathtaking natural setting without worrying about your neighbors peeking. 

The Four Seasons of Bora Bora is a dream of an experience, and The InterContinental Bora Bora Resort and Thalasso Spa is the height of luxury. Consisting of five archipelagos, comprised of 121 islands and atolls, French Polynesia is a truly remote and first-class getaway spot that offers many five star options
