South Pacific Islands

World class corals, picture-postcard beaches, rainforests and mountains

The islands of the South Pacific have captured the imagination of people the world over as they offer a incredible combination of tropical beauty, friendly people and breathtaking scenery.

Whether you are looking for a family holiday, an elegant romantic resort or an action packed holiday then look no further than one of the Islands in the South Pacific such as Tahiti, Tonga, Fiji or the Cook Islands.

Combine your stay with a visit to New Zealand or the USA, or take a stopover in Hong Kong or Singapore on the way out and back…the options are almost endless.

Fiji lies at the heart of the South Pacific and it certainly ticks the box if you’re looking for a picture-perfect destination. There are 333 islands in total, the largest of which are Viti Levu, Vanua Levu and Taveuni. The white sand beaches and clear waters will take your breath away. It’s a wonderful place for a honeymoon, a relaxing couples holiday or a family getaway – there really is something for everyone. You can spend endless days at the beach, go horseback riding, visit local villages, snorkel, dive, raft, take a rainforest trek or try your hand at a spot or surfing assisted by one of the helpful surf schools.

Bora Bora, the ‘Jewel of the South Seas’ has a verdant, green inland fringed by pristine sands leading to crystalline waters. It’s a romantic hideaway and especially perfect for honeymooners and couples. For an extra special stay, treat yourself to a holiday in an overwater or beachfront villa – the views are amazing and it’s places like this that make you never want to go home again!

For an ultra-luxurious and all-inclusive stay, we highly recommend The Brando; a unique and luxurious resort located on French Polynesia’s small private island of Onetahi. This was once Marlon Brando’s private sanctuary and it now boasts immaculately appointed villas…pure barefoot luxury in an idyllic location.
