The Gypsea Traveller is a Hawaii Travel Agency that books various tropical destinations. The Owner, Libbi is a travel agent that lives in Hawaii. Tahiti is only a 6 hour flight from Hawaii, making it just as easy to fly there than California.
Libbi fell in love with Tahiti the first time she experienced it as it's similar to Hawaii but more secluded, quiet and Hawaii over 200 years ago!
So you decided you want to stay on Tahiti for your French Polynesian vacation, but now you don't know what to do there?
Below are some of my recommendations.
In May we went to French Polynesia for a week cruise on Windstar. We spent 2 nights before the cruise on Tahiti as well as 1 night afterwards in Tahiti.
The first resort we stayed at was Te Moana Tahiti. They had various room categories to choose from and it was right on the water! They had a great lagoon made from the ocean that you could snorkel in and dip off in like a pool. Their breakfast was reasonably priced ($5 for a stack of pancakes!) and the rooms were great.
The second resort we stayed at was The Intercontinental Tahiti. The resort was beautiful. There were a ton of room categories to choose from but we chose to splurge on the overwater bungalow. The views of Mo'orea were amazing to see. They also had pools and salt water lagoons to swim in.
We found an amazing food truck that was next to Te Moana. It was called Sunset Roulette and was a pizza/crepe food truck. We ate there the first night and our last night we took a taxi to go there again from the Intercontinental as the food was delicious.
Many times the flights come into Tahiti late at night. If you're taking a cruise, ferrying to Mo'orea or flying to another island, you might need to stay on Tahiti for the night. We really enjoyed the island though and would like to come back for a few days to explore it and not just do a pre/post stay.
