South Pacific

The jewels in the island crown, the gems of the oceans, the home of the overwater bungalow and one of the truly remote corners of the world yet to be discovered by mass tourism, the islands of the South Pacific are where our Turquoise heart first fell in love. Tahiti offers five-star luxury hotels combined with authentic Polynesian experiences, whereas the Cook Islands have only independent, non-chain hotels to choose from. They even have a law that no building can be taller than the tallest palm tree. Fiji sits somewhere in between (hypothetically not geographically!), home to remote island idyll’s and family run retreats, as well as some of the world’s most exclusive hotels and resorts.
