Get your family some Vitamin SEA this holiday period
Organising your family holidays for 2019? The Islands of Tahiti are an amazing destination to give you and your family a well-deserved break - a dream-like paradise of incredible beaches, clear water and an array of adventures for everyone to enjoy. One of the hardest questions you’ll have to answer is ‘where do I stay?’ Thankfully, we are here to make that decision a little easier for you.
The Islands of Tahiti are the original and best destination to enjoy overwater bungalows. Many of the hotels and resorts around the Islands offer overwater bungalows as an accommodation option, allowing you to wake up each morning to the soft sound of waves just outside your door and ultimate access to the stunning surrounds. If you’re travelling with your family, there are a number of resorts that offer larger bungalows especially for families - some even come with a villa host!
Guesthouses and homestays
If you want to totally immerse yourself in the beauty and culture of The Islands of Tahiti, a guesthouse (or a pension, as the locals refer to it) or homestay is the way to go. This very affordable style of accommodation is run by locals and gives you a glimpse into the everyday life of a Polynesian family – and the chance to be part of it.
Guesthouses are usually located near the home of your hosts and can have up to four rooms. For a homestay, some rooms can also be booked in your hosts’ own home for the ultimate authentic experience. If you are looking to take your family on a trip that not only allows you to relax, but also experience the culture and true welcoming nature of The Islands of Tahiti then this is the ideal accommodation for you.
For those who truly want to feel at one with nature and Mana, there are a few campgrounds scattered around The Islands of Tahiti for you and your family to explore. Camping is a great option if you want to experience the stunning islands from a different perspective. Be prepared to bring your own tent to the campgrounds, as many aren’t as developed as other tourist destinations around the world, and some supplies can be purchased at stores on the main island of Tahiti.
If you really want to escape, why not make yourself at home offshore on your very own yacht? You get your own space, permanent access to the pristine ocean and the option of seeing multiple islands in a time frame completely determined by you. If you’re a sailor, you can charter your own boat, or opt for a yacht with a skipper thrown in too.
What is even better about this option is the lack of seasickness due to the protected lagoons making it a calm journey for everyone. Spend your days relaxing on the deck while your children splash around beside you, or access hidden snorkeling spots and virtually untouched ocean, as you make your way around The Islands of Tahiti.
Get the family together and plan a trip of a lifetime to this beautiful haven – what are you waiting for?
