Escape to French Polynesia: A 10-Day Journey You Won't Forget

Dreaming of a tropical escape to the enchanting islands of French Polynesia? Look no further! This 10-day sample itinerary will guide you through an unforgettable journey to the luxurious Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora and Marlon Brandon's exclusive private island, The Brando. STG advisors are experts in creating itineraries with the perfect balance of experiences and downtime, so get ready for a blend of relaxation, adventure, and pure bliss.

Day 1: Arrival in Paradise

Welcome to Bora Bora! As your plane descends, you'll be mesmerized by the iconic turquoise lagoon. Upon landing, a boat will whisk you away to the Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora. Settle into your overwater bungalow and take in the panoramic views. Spend the afternoon unwinding on your private deck, dipping into the crystal-clear waters, or exploring the resort's amenities.

STG Pro Tip: Many international arrivals will require an overnight in Tahiti before heading on to Bora Bora. Your first night will be a night to unwind and adjust to the new time zone. When selecting your hotel, talk to your advisor about the view as not every hotel offers the incredible view of Mount Otemanu.

Day 2: Lagoon Exploration

As a Four Seasons Preferred Partner, breakfast is always included as a complimentary amenity for our clients. After a leisurely breakfast, it's time to explore the lagoon. Go on a private snorkeling tour with a Four Seasons marine biologist to discover vibrant coral gardens and friendly marine life. In the afternoon, paddleboard or kayak around your bungalow. End the day with a sunset cruise, sipping cocktails as the sky turns into a canvas of pink and orange hues.

Day 3: Mount Otemanu Adventure

Today is all about adventure. Embark on a 4x4 safari to the heart of Bora Bora. Visit ancient temples and learn about Polynesian culture before hiking up to the base of Mount Otemanu. Reward yourself with breathtaking island views. Back at the resort, treat yourself to a spa treatment inspired by local traditions.

Day 4: Cultural Immersion

Delve deeper into the Polynesian way of life. Start with a visit to a local pearl farm, followed by a traditional Polynesian cooking class. In the evening, enjoy a Tahitian dance show during dinner, where the rhythm of drums and dancers' moves tell tales of the islands' history.

Day 5: Romance and Relaxation

Spend the day at your own pace. Lounge by the infinity pool or book a couple's massage in a beachfront cabana. Come evening, indulge in a private beach dinner under the stars, complete with your personal waiter and a curated menu.

Day 6: Island Hopping to Tetiaroa

Bid farewell to Bora Bora as you hop on a short flight to Tetiaroa, Marlon Brando's private island and home to The Brando. Settle into your luxurious beachfront villa and familiarize yourself with this eco-friendly sanctuary. Enjoy a quiet evening on the pristine beach.

Day 7: Environmental Enlightenment

The Brando isn't just about luxury; it's also about sustainability. Take part in an environmental tour to learn about the island's conservation efforts. Visit the Ecostation, where researchers work on preserving the local ecosystem. Afterward, relax at the award-winning Varua Te Ora Polynesian Spa.

Day 8: Atoll Adventures

Explore the atoll's rich biodiversity with a naturalist guide. Go bird watching, snorkel in the untouched coral reefs, or take a kayak out to see the island from the water. In the evening, dine at Les Mutinés, where exquisite French cuisine meets tropical flair.

Day 9: Leisure and Luxury

Your penultimate day is for indulging in leisure. Whether it's a yoga session at sunrise, a bike ride around the island, or simply lounging by your private plunge pool, embrace the slow pace of island life. Cap off the day with a private movie screening at the resort's theater.

Day 10: Farewell to Paradise

On your final day, soak up every last moment. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast with ocean views, take one last swim in the sea, and reflect on the memories made. As you depart from this slice of heaven, you'll already be dreaming of your next visit.
