Where can you find the best overwater accommodations in French Polynesia? Well, that depends what day it is; the most desirable suites in the South Pacific don’t stay put for long. Unlike standard bungalows, booking a room aboard a luxurious TradeWinds yacht allows you to wake up to a different breathtaking view every morning. One day you could be taking in the sunrise over the lush green hilltops of Taha’a, French Polynesia’s “Vanilla Island,” and another you could be enjoying your coffee while watching spotted eagle rays glide by in the crystalline waters surrounding Bora Bora.
TradeWinds, which was founded in 1999, offers all-inclusive sailing trips around the globe, but the company’s French Polynesian Society Islands itinerary is by far its most swish. Book one of the five cabins onboard a TradeWinds 59-foot luxury class catamaran and you’ll be treated to the best bespoke honeymoon service at sea. Each vessel operates as a floating boutique hotel with a skipper and first mate ready to cater to your every need, whether that’s teaching you the basics of sailing or mixing your favourite cocktail.
Cabins on TradeWinds yachts feature queen-sized island beds, room-controlled air conditioning as well as en-suite showers and bathrooms. You’ll share the vessel with a set of adventurous, like-minded travellers who will quickly become close friends and you’ll find a range of fun activities (as well as fabulous food and drinks) at your fingertips.
On top of all this, TradeWinds prides itself on making luxury yacht charters accessible to people who may not have Bieber-sized travel budgets, so you’ll find that a Society Islands cruise is actually one of the most affordable ways to explore French Polynesia in style.
Another bonus? If you decide you love the cruising experience, you can purchase a TradeWinds membership onboard so that you can spend each of your wedding anniversaries exploring a new TradeWinds destination.
