The short video below provides instructions on how and when to administer the Self Test that you will be given upon arrival in Tahiti. The video is very descriptive and worth the time it takes to watch. Please note, all travelers will be required to perform a self-test on Day 4 of their trip. Unvaccinated children will be required to self-test on Day 4 and Day 8.
From the date of reopening on July 15, 2020 through December 5, 2020 only 135 travelers tested positive on this test out of 35,000 visitors that were tested. This is less than 1/2 of 1% of all incoming tourists. Please see the Frequently Asked Questions section of our COVID-19 Travel Resources page for additional information, including the necessary protocols should you test positive on this Self Test.
As always, feel free to contact a Venture Tahiti Travel Specialist with any questions. Even if you have booked through another company or directly with your hotel, we would be glad to answer any questions you might have through one of our quick and inexpensive Advisory Sessions.
We are often asked about the cost of food in Bora Bora and Tahiti. Food tends to be a bit expensive in French Polynesia. It is on par with dining out in New York, Los Angeles or Honolulu. If you are trying to stick to a preferred travel budget, regardless of how much you plan to spend, the cost of dining in French Polynesia should be considered in your travel and vacation planning.
Which islands to visit and how many islands you should visit depends a lot on how long you plan to stay in French Polynesia.We typically advise clients to spend at least 3 nights on each island in their itinerary (except possibly the Island of Tahiti). Spending less than 3 nights tends to make travelers feel too rushed. After all, you are going there to at least try to relax.
The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort is absolutely incredible. There are no words to describe the beauty of Tahiti and the staff there was wonderful. I cannot thank Venture Tahiti enough for helping us book the most incredible experience of our lives!! We plan on bringing our children there very soon!
The spa is beautiful, we had a great couples massage! ...the excursions are amazing & the best snorkeling channel around! Its worth every penny you spend and an experience of a life time! The sunsets are the best you will ever see! We used VENTURE TAHITI in Boca Raton, Florida to book our trip and it went off without a hitch. They did an excellent job and I highly recommend them!
