HER FAVORITE TAHITI EXPERIENCE
"I absolutely love Huahine, it's so lush and beautiful! But I also love that it's one of the most culturally preserved islands in Tahiti. The last time I was there, we went on a horseback ride through the waist deep waters of Lake Fauna Nui and then up Matairea Hill. As we rode through the jungle on our way to the top of the mountain, we passed several ancient 'marae' (polynesian temples). I'll never forget the experience. It felt as if I'd been transported to a different moment in time. And the view from the top was incredible!"

HER FAVORITE TAHITI EXPERIENCE
"My favorite island would have to be Taha'a. I love the fact that it provides the best of both worlds. You could be in a private location with few people around, or you could explore all the island has to offer. Have an adventure snorkeling with sharks, go Jet Skiing, explore the pearl farm and vanilla plantations, or just lounge on the beach and enjoy a spa day. Taha'a provides the perfect getaway from the outside world."

HER FAVORITE TAHITI EXPERIENCE
"It's so hard to pick just one! But my favorite activity is an ATV adventure tour on Moorea. You'll learn about the history of the island while getting a beautiful scenic tour of the landscape. You'll see pineapple plantations, waterfalls, and the views from ‘Magic Mountain' and 'Belvedere Point' are absolutely spectacular!"

HER FAVORITE TAHITI EXPERIENCE
"It is hard to narrow down my favorite island as they are all very different and each has something unique to offer. In Tahiti, there is always a beautiful view, delicious food, fantastic people and a lagoon with ten or more different shades of blue and teal. In regards to views, Bora Bora is unlike anything I have ever seen, and pictures don't do the island justice. I will always be amazed by Mt. Otemanu and how it looks completely different from depending on where you are viewing it from in the lagoon."

HIS FAVORITE TAHITI EXPERIENCE
"There are many islands in French Polynesia and they all have their own personal beauty and special charm, but my personal favorite is Bora Bora. Besides the physical beauty, I am fascinated by the rich history of the island. The island was used as a naval supply facility for the allied forces and the airport that is used today was first built during the Second World War."

HER FAVORITE TAHITI EXPERIENCE
"I would have to say my favorite island is Moorea. I enjoy taking part in as many activities and adventures as I can, and for that Moorea is perfect. From snorkeling, to hiking to the ancient marae, jet skiing, or taking an ATV out to amazing vistas, there’s always something to do! Top it off with 360 degrees of incredible island views, a rich cultural history, and perfect island sunsets, you’ll be sure to find the island of Moorea a truly rewarding experience."

HER FAVORITE TAHITI EXPERIENCE
"The first time I landed at the airport in Bora Bora, I was blown away by its beauty. When you see these unbelievably stunning pictures of the destination, you may be tempted to think they are digitally enhanced. Believe me, they're not. Tahiti is more majestic in person than you could ever imagine. I remember thinking, ‘If I'm this impressed by the view at the airport, what awaits me at the hotels?' I was right… the most brilliant sights were yet to come."
