Travel tips to Tahiti & French Polynesia

 

Rangiroa, a coral atoll situated in the Tuamotu archipelago in French Polynesia, is home to one of the most beautiful hotels of the South Pacific – the Hotel Kia Ora Resort & Spa. Located on the northeastern coast between the two passes of Avatoru and Tiputa and surrounded by a lagoon with crystal clear waters, the hotel has a long standing commitment to authenticity and exceptional Polynesian hospitality. The Hotel Kia Ora Resort & Spa has 60 bungalows nestled along the coral reef atoll on a site of splendid beauty, surrounded by beautiful gardens and coconut grove. You will appreciate the comfort of the bungalows, whose decoration is a tribute to traditional Polynesian craftsmanship.

The beautiful and unspoiled nature of Rangiroa is conducive to all types of activities and excursions where you can either explore the wonders of the tropical nature or just relax in the infinity pool facing the lagoon with its different shades blue. At sunset, relax in Rangiroa’s unique overwater bar – the Miki Miki Bar, and enjoy a refreshing tropical cocktail as the sun drops below the horizon. You will enjoy your meals in the Te Rairoa Restaurant which are prepared for you by their chef who blends delicate flavors of traditional Polynesian cuisine with the specialties that have made the reputation of French gastronomy. The Hotel Kia Ora Resort & Spa proposes magnificent accommodations in a typically Polynesian style, a conducive environment to escape!

An Introduction to Tahiti & French Polynesia

Around 4000 BC, a great migration began from south-east Asia across open- ocean to settle the Pacific Islands. Many researchers conclude that Tonga and Samoa were settled around 1300 BC and from here colonization voyages were launched to the Marquesas Islands in about 200 BC. Over the next several centuries, great migrations to colonize all the Tahitian islands and virtually the entire South Pacific took place.

This area of the Pacific Ocean is now called the “Polynesian Triangle” and includes Hawaii to the north, Easter Island to the south-east and New Zealand to the south-west. As a result of these migrations, the native Hawaiians and the Maoris of New Zealand all originate from common ancestors and speak a similar language collectively known as Maohi.

Tahiti covers over two million square miles of the South Pacific Ocean and is comprised of 118 islands spread over five great archipelagos.

Many islands are crowned with jagged peaks while others appear to barely float above the breaking waves. Spread over an area as large as Western Europe, the total land mass of all the islands adds up to an area only slightly larger than the tiny state of Rhode Island.

The three archipelagos most sought by visitors are the Society Islands, comprised of Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, Huahine, Raiatea and Taha’a; The Tuamotu Atolls or “Tahiti’s Strand of Pearls”, include the atolls of Rangiroa, Manihi, Tikehau, and Fakarava; and the Marquesas, or “The Mysterious Islands.”

The two other archipelagos, the Austral Islands and the Gambier Islands, lie to the south and the southeast, respectively, of the Society Islands. While very few travelers venture to these remote islands, those that do are not disappointed by the pristine environment.

Around all the islands of Tahiti, dramatic views continue below the water. Divers and snorkelers are amazed by the density of large marine life. Regular encounters include manta rays whose gigantic wingspan eclipses the passing diver; schools of dolphin dancing along the surf; sharks seemingly at every turn; and, in the Austral Islands, humpback whales thrill the lucky spectators in their annual parade.

These stunning islands offer a fantastic array of delights that visitors will always remember – be one those fortunate people and book today.
