French Polynesia- Which Islands??

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning on visiting FP next May. We have a 5 night stay at the St. Regis Bora Bora, so that's a must, and now are trying to figure out the rest of our itinerary. We'd like to spend an additional 5-8 nights and definitely want to stay on Moorea for at least part of that. Our budget is around $5K, not including our flights from the US and our stay at the St. Regis.

We would love to snorkel and hike (if possible). We typically prefer smaller, boutique hotel settings and in previous travels, like to explore outside of traditional touristy areas. We are not into loud or kitschy areas. It would be nice to be within walking distance of a few shops/restaurants, but not necessary. We generally like to try local food for lunch and then go out for nice dinners.

If it helps, two of our favorite trips have been to Cap Juluca on Anguilla and Laluna on Grenada. We loved Cap for its service, location on a beautiful private beach, and Anguilla for its restaurants. Laluna was small and we loved the rustic style, and Grenada's mountains and waterfalls were amazing to explore. One of our best memories is jumping down the Seven Sisters waterfalls, just the two of us.

What other island (or hotels, restaurants, activities) would you recommend?
