French Polynesia

Some destinations still epitomize the expression “far-flung,” and French Polynesia—an eight-hour flight from Los Angeles, often followed by a puddle jumper or a boat—certainly qualifies. Bora Bora is no doubt the most well-known island in the archipelago, with its ultra-luxurious properties, but there are a few very special retreats on neighboring atolls that are truly once-in-a-lifetime. Much like in the Seychelles or the Maldives, it’s crucial to choose the right resort.

“Bora Bora is a picture-perfect paradise, with Mount Otemanu towering over a crystal-clear aquamarine lagoon. Tetiaroa Island is raw and natural, and the luxe eco-resort The Brando is one of the most special places you'll ever visit.”
