Long before the Pulitzer Prize winning book and the Rodgers and Hammerstein Toni Award winning musical, the South Pacific has been a place where the beauty is dreamlike and the hospitality is second to none. This summer, it is time for you to experience this tropical heaven on Earth and there is no one to better show you the way than Tahiti Legends. Here are just five of the more than 30 personalized vacations that are available for those who want to get a true taste of Oceania at its best.
The hotel Kia Ora Resort and Spa is located on the atoll of Rangiroa, built in the heart of a coconut plantation surrounded with perfect white-sand beaches and turquoise colored waters. An exquisite spa is located onsite and a beachfront restaurant and bar nestle up to the pool and Jacuzzi. They also offer five traditional style bungalows at their sister site, La Sauvage where guests can experience the true Polynesian art of living amongst nature. The package includes round trip air from L.A., air connections on Air Tahiti, five nights in a Beach Bungalow at Hotel Kia Ora Resort & Spa with free daily breakfast, and two nights at the remote Le Sauvage with full board, room taxes and additional charges.
Whether you want to spend your day at the water’s edge laying out or exploring the offshore reef with their PADI certified crew, you are sure to find a way to relax. Maybe you would rather play pitch and putt rainforest golf or indulge in a banana leaf body wrap or coconut oil massage at their Rainforest Spa.
This package includes seven nights in the all-inclusive Koro Sun Resort & Spa on the southern coast of Vanua Levu. Also included are roundtrip international airfare from Los Angeles on Fiji Airways, roundtrip inter-island air transportation on island hoppers, daily breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as all room tax, VAT, air taxes and fuel surcharges.

This package has you stay at the same two resorts as the Rangiroa Ultimate Experience but also bundles in a four-day / three-night cruise in a Archipels catamaran.

Airfare from L.A., transfers, fees, nine breakfasts and dinners as well as lunches aboard the cruise and at the Kia Ora Sauvage.
Just 30 miles northeast of Tahiti is the island of Tetiaroa. There The Brando sits, so beautiful that even The Godfather himself could not describe it.

All meals, including 24-hour dining in your villa; Internet access; alcohol with the exception of ultra-premium wines, champagnes and spirits; one excursion per person, per day; one 50-minute spa treatment for one person, per day; one bicycle per person and all transfers, fees and taxes.
