Fire Dancers and Outrigger Canoes
To get a taste of Polynesian culture, you should take in the Resort’s Polynesian Dinner Show with musicians and fire dancers on the beach. Another opportunity to experience Polynesia is to go on to a ray ballet safari on a Polynesian traditional outrigger canoe. And for those who love body art, consider getting an authentic Marquisian tattoo.
The Resort has one of the most unique family programmes in the world, really something for all ages. Kids For all Seasons is for the younger guests (ages 5 to 12) and Chill Island is specifically for teens (ages 13 to 17). Both offer all-day complimentary programming of recreational and cultural activities. Additionally, there are many activities for families to enjoy together, including dinner on the beach, a snorkelling excursion and relaxing in a poolside cabana.
Restaurants for Every Taste
The Resort has quite the variety of dining experiences. Sushi and Asian tapas are served at Sunset Restaurant and Bar; Arii Moana offers an elegant and visually stunning atmosphere; Tere Nui has themed nights; and Fare Hoa Beach Bar offers casual fare and romantic dining on the beach. The local fish is unbeatable, often caught just hours before mealtime.
Explore the Great Outdoors
For a memorable outing, take a full-day excursion on the Four Seasons Catamaran. You’ll spend a half-day snorkelling, followed by a Polynesian traditional barbecue on a secluded private Motu (islet), and still have time to relax before heading back to the Resort. Or take a Jeep tour of the island—going up into the hills to overlook the island’s shores, neighbour islands and historic cannons from World War II.
Itinerary: A Perfect Day
Wake up to the sound of the ukulele playing traditional Polynesian songs as the Resort’s canoe delivers your breakfast directly to your bungalow. (The paddler may even take you on a short ride while our waitress sets up your table.) On your way to the Arrival Pavilion, visit our Black Pearl Lounge to choose an original and exclusive piece of jewellery or a souvenir from the Marquesas Islands. Arriving at the Activity Dock, your private boat and captain will take you for a discovery and snorkelling tour of the island of Bora Bora by speedboat. Lunch on a secluded motu (islet) will be served only for you in front of Mount Otemanu. Back at the Resort, enjoy a Polynesian massage in our award-winning Spa in the Kahaia Spa Suite ending with a coconut milk bath. Enjoy a stunning sunset from one of our Andreyale boats, while you sip a glass of Champagne with canapés and stare at the sunset. After the boat anchors, savour the fresh sushi that the Resort’s sushi chef prepares for you. Petit fours will be presented on the way back to the Resort.
