For the complete South Seas experience, consider adding a pre- or post-cruise hotel package to your Tahiti cruise. Arriving a few days before your cruise gives you time to relax and get oriented before boarding the ship, and more importantly, pre- and post-cruise hotel packages allow you to enjoy the culture and awe-inspiring beauty of the islands from an unrivaled vantage point--an overwater bungalow.
Tahiti's most popular hotels offer overwater bungalows. These luxurious rooms are built on stilts and positioned above the shallow, scenic lagoons that surround the islands, keeping their guests as close to the ocean as possible. Some bungalows come equipped with viewing windows to observe the abundant sea life below. Others provide small docks or diving platforms for an impromptu swim or snorkeling trip.
More traditional (and more budget-friendly) hotel options also exist, nearly all with oceanfront or oceanview rooms available. In Tahiti, often hailed as the perfect spot for a honeymoon, most hotels boast day spas, quiet cocktail bars, gourmet restaurants and other perks built for pairs. These resort properties offer the perfect pre- and post-cruise packages for travelers in search of a full-service island hideaway.
