Tahiti Special Hotel-and-Cruise Package

Paradise is closer than you think—and now it’s more affordable, too. Enjoy special pricing on a hotel-and-cruise package that combines 3 nights at the luxurious InterContinental Tahiti Resort & Spa or InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa with a 7-night Tahiti & the Society Islands cruise aboard the award-winning m/s Paul Gauguin.

Itinerary Highlights:

You'll fly to Papeete and check into your lagoon-view room in Tahiti, or transfer to Moorea, just a short ferry ride away, where a lanai room awaits. Then, enjoy three additional nights at your resort with daily breakfast. Or, for the ultimate Tahiti experience, upgrade to an overwater lagoon bungalow, available for an additional per-person fee.

In addition to your luxury hotel stay, you’ll sail roundtrip from Papeete, Tahiti, visiting the scenic islands of Huahine, Bora Bora, and Moorea, and spend a day on Paul Gauguin Cruises’ private islet off the coast of Taha’a.

This package is perfect for anyone who wants to enjoy a longer stay in French Polynesia at a tremendous value, with daily breakfast, roundtrip airfare from Los Angeles, and all transfers also included. But hurry! This offer is available on these select departure dates only—and only while space lasts. For the ultimate hotel-stay, ask about upgrading to an overwater lagoon bungalow, available for an additional cost. 

Past guests of Paul Gauguin Cruises receive an additional 5% off final cruise fares as members of the Paul Gauguin Society.
