Tahiti ONE WEEK
APRIL 2023

A life-enriching family program in the cultural heart of french polynesia

On this family-friendly adventure, spend a week exploring the magnificent island of Tahiti. 

Parents can enjoy me- and we-time amidst a community of like-minded folks while kids and teens have fun doing outdoor activities like: 

  • Learning to surf on a black sand beach with warm waves, stunning vistas, and expert instructors
  • Snorkeling amidst sea turtles in the crystalline waters of the lagoon
  • Paddling traditional Polynesian outrigger canoes while seeing stingrays and colorful fish 

Together we’ll stay at one of the nicest resorts on the island of Tahiti. You can start your day with swimming, tennis or kayaking in the lagoon. There will be plenty of options to invigorate your spirit.  

Tahiti's Finest Resort

For one magical week, you will stay at the Intercontinental, one of the best resorts on the island of Tahiti. Your room will be near this pool overlooking the island of Moorea. Elsewhere on the grounds you'll find tennis courts, kayaks, and a lagoon full of tropical reef fish. Plenty to inspire you and your kids.  

An Unforgettable Welcome Dinner

This might be one of the most memorable dinner events of your life. Casual attire, warm air, shimmering ocean. Fascinating people you would never meet otherwise. An alchemy of food, beverage, beauty, and social interaction, leading to magical moments for grown-ups and kids alike. 

Like Paris? You'll Love Papeete

In recent years the capital city of French Polynesia has been going through a renaissance, with new cafés, boulangeries, and boutique shops burgeoning near the waterfront. They exhibit all the charm and sophistication of Paris but with a warm, laidback Polynesian vibe. You can experience the best of both worlds while discovering all sorts of fabulous new spots.  

The Hottest Restaurants & Cafés

Rather than staying in a secluded enclave, you'll have plenty of opportunity to experience the vibrant culture. Some evenings, as the setting sun begins to fill the sky with golden light, you can head out to hip outdoor restaurants at the water's edge. The style in Tahiti is casual; even the fanciest places can be described as "flip-flop chic". Enjoy happy hours at local eateries with so much character they will imprint themselves on your psyche and palate. Grab dinner at the roulottes (food trucks) as the kids bubble to tell you their adventures with new friends.

World-Class Hiking

Tahiti’s interior is home to some of the most exquisite hikes in French Polynesia. If you wish, you'll have the opportunity to discover spectacular waterfalls, striking mountain peaks, lush valleys, and ancient ruins.  

 

Sunset Catamaran Cruise

On Wednesday at 4pm (7pm Pacific) we'll throw on our bathing suits and head into the lagoon. Black spotted eagle rays may dart by as the setting sun casts mango-colored light upon our sails and we toast to a day well lived.  

Culturally-Immersive Programming for Kids & Teens

Our youth-oriented cultural adventures have been created to provide visiting families with an inspiring, educational and holistic view of French Polynesia for their kids (aged 5 to 12) and teens (aged 13 to 18). While the programs feature exploration and adventure, our priority at all times, in every activity, is safety for your children. For detailed program descriptions, click the Youth Programs link above. 

Beautiful Workspaces

If you need to get some work done, you can enjoy a wide range of private and public co-working spaces with breathtaking views, inspiring design, abundant natural light, and fiber-optic internet. 

Don't need to work? You're in for a treat. Enjoy abundant recreational and wellness options on your own or with interesting members of our group. We'll get you connected even before the retreat to foster camaraderie.  

Babysitting & Daycare

Got a toddler? You'll love that we've lined up babysitters through the Intercontinental resort. These ladies are available to provide onsite daycare for kids aged 3+. 

Farewell Dinner

By the time we have dinner together at this stunning restaurant over the lagoon, we will have shared unforgettable experiences and connected in unforeseen ways. You and your loved ones will be flyin' high!
