Set Sail for a Stay in Tahiti
For many, the lure of The Islands of Tahiti is the crystal clear waters and beyond blue lagoons surrounding the motus – so why not spend your holiday on them as well as in them? Private nautical charters offer an alternative way to see the Islands, aboard what will essentially be your floating villa or hotel.
The Moorings, specialists in yacht charters and sailing holidays, will soon add to the myriad of sailing options already available for travellers, launching two brand new Sunsail Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440’s for charter from 1 November. With 4 cabins and 2 bathrooms, the new Sunsail 440 will be added to the group’s Raiatea fleet, which has until now been predominantly catamarans.
Perfect for groups, families, or even romantic trips for two, a sailing stay gives you a level of flexibility that is difficult to match with other styles of holiday. Choose from a boat with a crew or sail solo to explore as many islands as you would like – for as long as you would like. Spend your days literally floating at sea, or make your way onto land to go hiking, horse riding, to play golf, or to even eat at the larger resorts. There’s also the added benefit of no sea sickness thanks to the protection afforded by the coral reefs of the lagoons.
If your holiday preference involves staying on dry land, villa and home rentals afford the same level of privacy and independence. From apartments to homes to entire private islands, Tahiti Homes specializes in leasing fully equipped and furnished homes for holidaymakers. Many of these properties offer all the benefits of a
resort break without staying at a hotel such as concierge services and private chefs and some properties are even part of larger resorts.
Renting a home in the Islands of Tahiti is another great way to accommodate larger groups and families wanting to holiday together.
