InterContinental Resort Tahiti
After a full buffet breakfast at the Tiare Restaurant, an adventuress half-day 4x4 Jeep safari tour to the lush & rugged interior of the island, along the Papenoo Valley. A different side of Tahiti awaits you with amazing waterfalls and enormous green peeks such as Mt. Orehena the highest point of Tahiti. To cool off, while on the excursion, you can even take a dip in the refreshingly cool Papenoo River. Alternatively, if you wish for a more hands on, you can hop on a SSV Rhino and drive your own 4x4 along to the Papenoo Valley with your guide leading you the way.
After an exciting morning, enjoy a poolside lunch of the typically Tahitian dish of poisson cru: raw tuna marinated in lemon and coconut milk. My favorite dish ever. Afterwards, take the shuttle into Papeete and visit the famous local market. At the entry of the market you can find fresh ice cold coconuts. Purchase one for a few hundred francs and let the island revitalize you with the chilled juice as you see what the local merchants have to offer: handcrafted clothes, woven goods and world class vanilla pods. If you have the time and inclination and you are looking for the ultimate souvenir, you can even get a tattoo here. Return to the hotel for a well-deserved nap in one of the hammocks spread along the resort grounds.
For a perfect sunset, jump on a jet ski & cruise the lagoon and watch the sun sink behind the neighboring island of Moorea while you discover a sand bank and enjoy a bottle of Chilled French Champagne. During this time have your bungalow romantically decorated for a great surprise. A perfect dinner to end a perfect day. Head towards the port of Papeete to dine at a local “roulotte”. A local flavor awaits you with everything from fresh grilled fish to French crepes made in front of your eyes. IF you're lucky your meal will be accompanied by live ukulele music or traditional songs. .
