Once upon a time, on an island far away, honeymooners found paradise. And this is where Le Tahaa sits, in the turquoise waters of the South Pacific in secluded bliss.
The first thing that hits you is the vanilla scent in the air (Le Tahaa is famous for its vanilla plantations) as you walk to your Maldivian-style overwater villa (the resort has 48 over the lagoon and 12 on the beach; we say go for the overwater).
Some have views across the lagoon to Mount Ohiri, others towards Bora Bora; all have huge sundecks.
The food is spot on, from the freshest seafood at the beachside La Plage to Ohiri restaurant's gourmet take on the region's famous poisson cru (marinated fish).
Wow Factor: The Ohiri restaurant is like a huge tree-house, with stairs winding up the tree trunk to the dining room.
