A truly Tahitian sanctuary of traditional thatched roof bungalows are sitting proudly perched on elevated stilts over turquoise lagoon waters.

      4. Getting Here! Flying to Tahiti is not as far as your think it is!

While Tahiti is located in the South Pacific, the flight from the West Coast is only 1.5 hours longer than if you were to fly to Hawaii!
