- Air Tahiti and Air France fly from Los Angeles LAX to Papeete.
Round trip transfers in Bora-Bora are mandatory; all hotels are located on an inlet, transfers are by boat and have to be pre-arranged.
We recommend you stay in Papeete (a.k.a. Tahiti) coming in and going out. This can save you $500 or more on your vacation and avoids potential misconnections with your inter-island flights. If you arrive in the evening there will be no connecting flights to the other islands.
Tahiti's islands offer one of the world's most breathtakingly beautiful destinations and their people and culture will infect you with their friendliness and unhurried pace. Each island is a unique travel destination with their own geographic peculiarities. The legendary paintings of Gauguin have been inspired by French Polynesia's turquoise lagoons, volcanic peaks, lush valleys and white-sand beaches. Unlike any other properties in the world, the resorts of Tahiti offer the perfect combination of experiences, service, dramatic views, cuisine, ambience, and accommodations. Lodging types range from rooms and suites with ocean views to thatched roof bungalows on stilts perched above the water with glass floors and a private deck with a ladder to the water.
