Tahiti is often thought of as the world’s paradise and considered one of the most romantic places on Earth. These exotic islands seem to have it all — sandy white beaches, glistening turquoise lagoons, vanilla-scented breezes, and velvety green mountains.
If you’re looking looking for a luxurious and romantic cruise then look no further, Paul Gauguin have complied a list of their top 10 reasons as to why Tahiti and the surrounding areas may just sweep you off your feet…
Couples can enjoy a breath taking Helicopter Flightseeing Tour of the islands of Bora Bora and Tupai. As your guests fly over Bora Bora, they will discover spectacular views and brilliant photo opportunities of the world’s most beautiful lagoon and reefs, along with manta rays and sharks.
2. Long walks along the beach
Guests can enjoy a romantic stroll along the beach at our private beach in Bora Bora or our private islet — Motu Mahana. They can walk hand in hand as they admire scenic views of majestic mountains and count the shades of blue in famous lagoons.
3. Relax in pure bliss
Your client can treat a loved one to an unforgettable spa experience. French Polynesia is home to many world-class spas. With its unrivaled approach to beauty and rejuvenation, Deep Nature Spa by Algotherm, on board The Gauguin, combines the art of gentle pampering with services that are uniquely tailored to the needs and wishes of each individual.
4. Romance on the water
Tahiti is full of romantic excursions, and Paul Gauguin Cruises offers a variety of optional shore excursions that allow your guests to indulge their senses. They can discover one of the world’s most beautiful locales during the Sunset Blue Lagoon Escapade. In a maximum group of four, cruisers will board a 23-foot Jeanneau Cap Camarat 715W Amotorized boat for a private sunset cruise to Bora Bora’s idyllic lagoon. Along the way, guests will be served a bottle of Champagne and refreshments as they watch the afternoon sun fade on the horizon in a kaleidoscope of brilliant colours.
5. A table for two
We make it easy for your guests to wine and dine onboard. For dinner, your guests can embark on a five-star culinary adventure in one of our three dining venues. Perhaps your guests will dine al fresco in Le Grill, taking in the stunning ocean views, or they can choose to request a table for two and enjoy a private evening in either La Veranda or L’Etoile. Or, for an even more intimate experience, they could take advantage of complimentary room service and dine on their private balcony under the stars. And wherever they chose to dine, every tantalizing meal will be perfectly paired with complimentary wines.
6. The most important and romantic meal of the day
Couples can wake up to the smell of a fresh, gourmet breakfast including delicious island fruit, freshly squeezed juice, and waffles with berries covered in whipped cream served in their stateroom. For the ultimate experience, they could also opt for our Champange Breakfast in Bed Package, which includes a half-bottle of Champagne, toast points with caviar (20 gr paddle fish), pastries, coffee/tea, and orange juice. We think a cruise is the perfect excuse for Breakfast in bed!
7. Adventures in love
One of our favourite romantic adventures is a full day spent exploring Bora Bora’s glittering neon lagoon on a Lagoon Cruise and Polynesian Feast optional excrusion. Adventurous guests can discover coral gardens where they can snorkel among colourful fish and enjoy a Polynesian feast on a private motu. Exhilarating, blissful, sumptuous — this is romantic paradise!
8. Chasing waterfalls
Cruisers can immerse themselves in the natural beauty of the islands by spending a day exploring tropical gardens and lush rainforests as they hike to cascading waterfalls and then cool off in the natural pool below the towering falls.
9. Memorable celebrations of love
Couples can commemorate a marriage or anniversary with a unique Polynesian blessing ceremony aboard The Gauguin. Honeymooners also receive a complimentary package featuring a celebratory bottle of sparkling wine, a Polynesian blessing performed by Les Gauguines, a 8″x10″ photo portrait and an exclusive pillow gift.
10. Enchanted evenings
After dinner, couples can enjoy a lively show at Le Grand Salon, or try their luck in Le Casino or relax at La Palette lounge — the perfect place to grab a nightcap and dance under the stars to live music.
