French Polynesia: A Different ‘South Of France’ Yacht Charter

Swap your yacht charter on the French Riviera for a French Polynesia yacht charter in the South Pacific for an all-new South of France luxury experience.

A slice of the French Riviera in the South Pacific

If you love the beauty and luxury of the French Riviera on your yacht charter in France, why not consider ‘another’ South of France one summer, with a French Polynesia yacht charter in the South Pacific?

A French Polynesia yacht charter has all the things you love about the Côte d’Azur like French gastronomy, fine golf courses and decadent spa hotels, but with a heady dash of the exotic – think overwater bungalows and coral atolls, coral reefs and coconut palms.

This summer, leave the French Riviera for a France deep in the South Pacific, where the smell of frangipani floats on the breeze and you can dive off the swim platform each morning into a turquoise lagoon, and laze about on a hammock on a sugar-white beach.

And don’t worry, you don’t have to leave the luxury life behind on a French Polynesia yacht charter: these remote Pacific Islands really know how to pamper their guests.

The Luxury Life in Tahiti: How Does it Compare to the French Riviera?

Let us count the ways!


If you love the heart-stopping views of the Monte-Carlo Golf Club, you’ll love the Green Pearl Golf Course in Moorea, where each hole looks out across the South Pacific, a deep lagoon, or up to a lush mountain. Framed by coconut palms and a strip of sugar white beach, this Jack Nicklaus designed course is the place to have your dream round of golf.

Fine Dining

If the fine dining of Le Louis XV – Alain Ducasse at the Hôtel du Paris in Monaco appeals to your gourmet tastes, then French Polynesia also has some exquisite culinary experiences. As on the French Riviera, many of the best tables in French Polynesia are found at exclusive hotels, such as Lagoon at the St. Regis resort on Bora Bora, where the restaurant’s glass floor is built over a lagoon and you can watch the sharks and rays swim by during dinner. On Tahiti, the top table on the island is Le Lotus Restaurant at the InterContinental Tahiti Resort & Spa, or in the gardens by the sea at the romantic Le Coco’s.

Day Spas

No French Polynesia yacht charter is complete without a treatment or two in one of the South Pacific’s dreamy spas. If you’ve ever tried the Thermes Marins de Cannes at the Radisson Blu 1835 Hotel & Thalasso in Cannes, you’ll fall headlong in love with the Thalasso Spa at the Hotel InterContinental resort in Bora Bora, where treatment rooms with glass floors allow you to see the marine life beneath as you relax into your massage.

Also on Bora Bora, the spectacular St. Regis resort’s Miri Miri Spa by Clarins is located on its own private island in the middle of a sapphire lagoon. For an exclusive treatment in paradise, head to the private atoll of Tetiaroa and The Brando hotel, a Polynesian haven where the main spa suite is a cocoon nestled 20 feet up in the trees.
