An opportunity to experience

Spring Break in Tahiti

Edit Profile
Tahiti 8 DAYS
SAT 2 APR 2022 - SAT 9 APR (UTC-10:00)

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

Spring Break in Tahiti is a family vacation that blends remote work with culturally immersive, educational outdoor activities that are kid-friendly!

Parents enjoy me- and we-time amidst a community of like-valued folks while kids and teens broaden their hearts, minds and horizons through outdoor educational experiences 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 the nicest resort 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. Best of all, it's easily accessible via a direct 8-hour flight from San Francisco or Los Angeles. Same time zone as Hawaii!

Tahiti's Finest Resort

For one magical week, we will live and work together at the Intercontinental, the best resort 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.  

Kids & Teens Programs

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. 

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. 

Sunrise & Sunset Wellness

Experience an optimized version of your life where you need not choose between professional achievement and your kids. Where fitness and productivity go hand in hand. Let the spectacular sunrises and sunsets massage your soul.  

Inspiring Community

Spend quality time in an idyllic setting with other entrepreneurial, global citizens. Enjoy the creative vibe. Don't be surprised if you find yourself interacting with new friends. It may start with light conversation but often progresses to deep, meaningful communication. 

 

Sunset Catamaran

On Wednesday at 4pm (7pm Pacific) we'll close our laptops, 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.  

The Hottest Restaurants

Rather than staying in a secluded enclave, you'll have plenty of opportunities to experience local 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.

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.  

Inspiring Workspaces

Enjoy a wide range of private and public co-working spaces with breathtaking views, inspiring design, abundant natural light, and fiber-optic internet. You will definitely want to breathe deep.

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 trip to foster a vibrant community.

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!
