Following your airport welcome, meet your private transfer to the InterContinental Tahiti Resort & Spa where you will spend one night in a sumptuous overwater motu bungalow. Unwind in spacious Polynesian luxury with your own deck over the lagoon, adjacent to the Lagoonarium teeming with more than 200 species of sea creatures. Enjoy two infinity pools with views of Moorea and tranquil treatments at Deep Nature Spa by Algotherm. Savor a choice of restaurants offering traditional Polynesian and French-inspired gourmet fare, plus authentic dinner shows, watersports and cultural demonstrations.

This afternoon, discover Tahiti's history and beauty on the Circle Island Excursion with a drive to One Tree Hill, Arahoho Blowhole and the Museum of Tahiti. Visit and learn about Point Venus where British explorer James Cook observed and sketched Venus' rare transit between the Earth and sun.

Before dinner this evening, indulge in a little pampering with a signature spa therapy or enjoy a refreshing tropical cocktail, aperitif or champagne from the Lobby Terrace Bar for the best sunset views. Following torch lighting at sunset, savor an elegant four-course dinner from swordfish and duck breast to decadent coconut parfait served in a chocolate shell at Le Lotus overwater restaurant. Or, opt for local specialties from Te Tiare Restaurant, featuring your choice of fresh ingredients for a spectacular finale to your day on Tahiti.
