Tahiti Specialist - Becky Kent-Perchalla
How long have you been in the industry?
Which of our 118 islands have you visited?
Tahiti, Moorea, Bora, Tetiaroa, Raiatea, Tahaa, Huahine
Advice or something you did not know before experiencing the destination firsthand:
Try to visit 2-3 different islands - rather than stay on one - to get a feel for them. They are all quite different and worth some time exploring. It's often the unexpected that we remember the most fondly.
What activity would you highly recommend to your clients?
Jetskiing around Bora Bora is quite the adventure while searching for strawberry crabs on Tetiaroa was also great fun!
What is your favourite memory?
Swimming at any given time in the loveliest clear ocean - everywhere you turn on a Tahitian island, the water beckons you to jump in! I also love Les Roulettes in Papeete - the chance to mingle with locals and eat some fabulous food!
What would you love to do next time you visit?
I'd love to visit Tikehau to see the pink sand lagoon and if I had a bit longer, I'd love to cruise up to the Marquesas to see the rugged side of French Polynesia.
That said - I'd not decline a re-visit to The Brando and enjoy a treatment in their day spa.! One of the best spa retreats I've had the privilege of seeing.
