Full Itinerary


London (England)

Day 1: Saturday 7 July

There is no better place to toast our approaching adventure than the elegant Luton Hoo country manor outside London. After meeting your fellow travellers over cocktails, fine wines and champagne, we dine on the finest British cuisine made from the best local seasonal produce by Chef Will Hughes. The private dinner takes place in the grand Romanov Suite, once the manor’s Orthodox Russian Chapel, with its original stained glass windows and ornate icons. We spend the night in Belle Époque splendour, anticipating our first private jet flight tomorrow. During the Second World War, Luton Hoo was the headquarters of the Eastern Command. The surrounding estate became a testing ground for Churchill tanks, used widely in Normandy during the Battle For Hill 112.

Tower Bridge, London

Hamilton (Bermuda)

Day 2: Sunday 8 July

This morning, we depart London from the Harrods VIP Terminal, arriving in Hamilton, Bermuda, just in time for a balmy afternoon.  We check in at the luxurious Hamilton Princess Hotel and Beach Club, a historic hotel that first opened in 1885, with its own private beach. Spend the afternoon at your leisure and prepare for our gala welcome dinner this evening at the Commissioner’s House. The frame of this Georgian mansion, built in the 1820s, was cast in England before it was brought to Bermuda.

Hamilton

Day 3: Monday 9 July

After breakfast, spend your day discovering these Your World experiences, covering Bermuda from east to west.

  • Take a tour of St. George’s Parish. Founded in 1612, it was the first permanent British settlement. Here, David Frith, who holds the old-fashioned position of Town Crier, will introduce you to the World Heritage Centre, a replica of ‘Deliverance’ the ship and St. Peter’s Church, reportedly the oldest Protestant church still in use in the New World. Our final  stop is the Bermuda Perfumery, founded in 1928. We then enjoy lunch at the Tempest Bistro, set within the Old Carriage House with brick arches and cedar ceiling beams.
  • See the Royal Naval Dockyard, the British Navy’s home  in the Western Atlantic between American independence and the Cold War. We travel there in a private motor yacht. At the dockyard, historian Tim Rogers shows us where ships were first repaired in the 1800s. After we visit the National Museum of Bermuda, we stop in at the Bermuda Rum Cake Company, also within the dockyard. After the busy morning, lunch is at the delightful Cambridge Beaches Resort.
  • Enjoy the ocean view while you play a round of golf at Turtle Hill Golf Club.
  • Indulge yourself at the hotel spa.
  • Sample the rum and learn to make the quintessential rum swizzle cocktail.
  • Go sportfishing on a private charter for Bermuda’s famous blue marlin.

For dinner, choose from a handpicked selection of Bermuda’s best restaurants.

Bermuda Islands

Havana (Cuba)

Day 4: Tuesday 10 July

This morning, our private jet crosses the western portion of the Atlantic Ocean, landing in Havana mid-afternoon.  We check in to the Kempinski Manzana de Gómez in Old Havana, for the next three nights. Following a relaxed dinner, you are free to walk the atmospheric streets of the city or do  a little shopping. The easy night allows us to prepare ourselves for tomorrow’s excitement.

Havana

Day 5: Wednesday 11 July

We acquaint ourselves with the city through a guided walking tour, taking in the Plaza de Armas and Old Havana. The city’s crumbling grandeur presents itself, an echo of the days when it grew rich as a port for Spanish galleons carrying treasures from the Americas. We stop in at the opulent Captain General’s Palace and some of Ernest Hemingway’s old haunts, before having lunch at a handful of local restaurants within Old Havana.

  • The afternoon is left free for exploration on your own.  Or, if you wish, select from these Your World experiences.
  • Trace Hemingway’s steps across the city and beyond. Visit his former estate, the Finca La Vigía. Then, head to the picturesque village of Cojímar, in which he set The Old Man and the Sea.
  • Delve into the Cuban-American connection. See the Hotel Nacional, built in 1930, when Cuba was a major destination for Americans. Ride in a classic 1950s Chevrolet or Buick, and learn about the American Mafia in Havana. 
  • Tour a cigar factory for insight into Cuba’s most famous export.
  • Learn more about Havana’s buildings with an architecture tour that points out all the different styles and Cuban adaptations of them.

This evening, we dine at Café del Oriente, which, at the height of communism, was Havana’s only luxury restaurant. After dinner, we invite you out to a salsa spectacular. It might be Wednesday, but in Havana, every night is a weekend night. The best salsa bars change regularly, but with our finger firmly on the city’s pulse, you can be sure that we’ll find ourselves dancing along to the liveliest, most popular of bands.

Havana

Day 6: Thursday 12 July

If yesterday was dedicated to Old Havana, today, we explore some of the other districts that make up the city. We visit fortresses built to guard the port’s entrance, first El Morro, and then, La Cabaña. After that, we pay a visit to Plaza de la Revolución, the square which Fidel Castro once used regularly to address Cubans. At the Museum of the Revolution, we learn more about the revolutionary war of the 1950s.

Lunch today is at the inventive Ivan Chef Justo, a paladar, or private restaurant, set in an 18th century colonial building with eclectic interiors. The menu changes regularly and features only what’s fresh in the market that day.

That afternoon, choose from these Your World experiences that you missed yesterday.

  • Go on an architecture tour that highlights the myriad styles used in the city.
  • Learn about the Cuban-American connection. Built in 1930, the Hotel Nacional once played host to American visitors. Learn about the American Mafia in Havana and ride in a classic 1950s Chevrolet or Buick.
  • Learn about the history of rum at the Museo del Ron then sample a variety of Havana Club, the original Cuban rum.

With the advent of economic reform, chefs all over Havana are free to open paladares of their own. This explosion of choice is to our benefit. Tonight, you are free to select from a carefully curated list of Havana’s most delicious  and atmospheric paladares.

Antigua (Guatemala)

Day 7: Friday 13 July

Our private jet flies us direct from Cuba to Guatemala, a rare route that you won’t find on a commercial airline. Even rarer is a stop in Flores, close to Tikal, home to one of the most powerful Mayan kingdoms. Here, you can choose from two equally tempting Your World experiences.

  • In Tikal, admire the remains of temples still towering 70 metres high, and imagine the feats required to build them in the 4th century BC.
  • Get on a privately chartered boat to view the town of Flores, which is quaintly located on an island in the middle of Lake Petén Itzá. Spanish colonial buildings sit shoulder-to-shoulder, divided by cobblestone lanes.

We board our private jet again for the short hop to Guatemala City. There, a driver picks us up and takes us through the central highlands to Antigua, a World Heritage-listed city, thanks to its Spanish Baroque architecture.

We check in to the Hotel Camino Real Antigua, our home for the next three nights. That evening, we dine at Las Velas restaurant in our hotel, savouring traditional Guatemalan flavours and the impeccable service.

Antigua

Day 8: Saturday 14 July

The morning is set aside for exploration of Antigua’s Spanish side. A guided walking tour through the old city takes us past the ruined churches and convents of Las Capuchinas, San Francisco, Santo Domingo and the relatively unscathed La Merced, which is still in use today. Our last stop on this walk is the Museum of Colonial Art.

We rest for lunch at the Hotel Posada de Don Rodrigo, which offers Guatemalan delicacies.

Spend the afternoon relaxing, or take a trip beyond urban Antigua with these Your World experiences.

  • Fly over the city in a helicopter then view one of the active volcanoes that surround Antigua.
  • Visit a coffee plantation and taste some of the best beans in the world. The highland region outside the city grows the famed Guatemala Antigua, a complex coffee with notes of smoke, spice, flowers and chocolate.

At dinner, you are free to choose from our carefully curated list of local restaurants for authentic Guatemalan cuisine. Some of our favourites are Palacio De Doña Leonor, Las Antorchas and Meson Panza Verde.

Antigua Streets, Guatemala

Antigua

Day 9: Sunday 15 July

After breakfast, explore the city at your own pace or choose from these Your World experiences. For those who missed one or both of yesterday’s experiences, they are offered again today.

  • Join us for a full day tour of Iximche, an hour and a half drive from Antigua. Iximche was the last capital of the Maya, surrounded by plunging ravines and dotted with pine trees. Besides the atmospheric ruins, you will notice present-day Maya aj q’ijab, or priests, visiting on pilgrimage.
  • Fly over the city in a helicopter then view one of the active volcanoes that surround Antigua.
  • Visit a coffee plantation and taste some of the best beans in the world. The highland region outside the city grows the famed Guatemala Antigua, a complex coffee with notes of smoke, spice, flowers and chocolate.

On our last evening in Antigua, we celebrate with a private dinner in a breathtaking location reserved solely for us.  The only details we can divulge are that you should bring something warm to wear and a camera to record the spectacle.

Cartagena (Colombia)

Day 10: Monday 16 July

We have lunch on board our flight to Cartagena, arriving later in the afternoon. A short drive later, we are at our hotel, the Sofitel Legend Santa Clara, a former 17th century monastery with arched walkways surrounding a stone courtyard filled with palms. Take to the cobblestone streets this afternoon for an exploration at your own pace or relax in the comfort of our hotel.

This evening, we have a spectacular dinner at the Santa Clara Chapel in our hotel, an atmospheric space with original stone walls and soaring, vaulted ceilings.

Cartagena, Colombia
Cartagena, Colombia

Cartagena

Day 11: Tuesday 17 July

We begin the day at La Popa, the highest point in Cartagena.  A historic convent occupies this spot, but it is more well known for its sweeping views of the city. After that, we visit the San Felipe de Barajas Fortress. Cartagena was where the Spanish stored treasure plundered from the rest of South America and, therefore, was a target for pirates. The fortress’ job was to dissuade these bandits.

Back in the old walled city, we take our time to admire the brightly painted coralstone houses and their wooden balconies.

We lunch at a local restaurant featuring Colombian favourites.  This afternoon, escape the heat with a siesta or take a leisurely cruise of Cartagena Bay to view the old walled city from the water.

For dinner this evening, choose the restaurant that tempts you most. We have prepared a very select list of Cartagena’s best. Some of our favourites include Club de Pesca, the city’s favourite seafood restaurant for nearly 60 years. Delectably fresh seafood aside, its al fresco tables within Fort Sebastian del Pastelillo take in panoramic views of the water and the city. El Santísimo is another restaurant, headed by Chef Federico Vega Pérez, who fuses Caribbean ingredients with French technique for flavours that really dance.

Puerto Maldonado (Peru)

Day 12: Wednesday 18 July

This morning, our private jet takes us south from Cartagena to Puerto Maldonado. Don’t forget to look out the window as we approach the city for awe-inspiring views of the river snaking through dense jungle. We board a boat on the Madre de Dios River headed for Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica, a luxury eco lodge reserved exclusively for us.

Relax on your balcony and take in the unique sensation of being in the middle of the world’s largest rainforest.  Surrounding you are 40,000 different plant species, 1,300 types of birds and in the river beyond, 3,000 kinds of fish.  As you take your next breath, remember that 20 per cent of the world’s oxygen is produced here.

Amazon Eco Lodge Touring

Puerto Maldonado

Day 13: Thursday 19 July

We awaken to the calls of exotic Amazonian birds - over 540 species have been found within our resort’s grounds and the rainforest just beyond. After breakfast, you are free to select two of these Your World experiences. Each is a half-day immersion in Amazonian flora, fauna or native culture.

  • See the jungle as a bird sees it on the Inkaterra Canopy Walkway. From 103 feet above the ground, you are eye-to-eye with toucans, woodpeckers, trogons and other feathered residents of the Amazon.
  • Explore the lush wetlands via a 200 metre boardwalk over the Aguajales rainforest swamps, and spot the amphibians, reptiles, snakes, birds and mammals that live in its watery reaches.
  • An hour and a half walk through the forest takes us along the banks of Gamitana Creek. When the walk ends, we board a wooden canoe and paddle downstream on the creek, home to piranhas, caimans, turtles and colourful birds. At the Gamitana Model Farm, learn a few Amazonian agriculture skills and make your own plantain flour for bread.
  • Join an expedition to Lake Sandoval. First by motorised canoe to Tambopata National Reserve, then on foot, and finally by regular canoe. On the mirror-like oxbow lake, look out for endangered giant river otters, red howler monkeys, macaws, hoatzins and more.
  • Experience the trees and animals from high above, then from the jungle floor. Start with the Inkaterra Canopy Walkway, then, after descending, go on the Anaconda Walk along a 200 metre boardwalk over lush wetlands.
  • Travel up the Madre de Dios River to Inkaterra Hacienda Concepción, where a botanical garden holds over 200 different rainforest plant species. Learn how many of these plants have remarkable medicinal or food uses. End the journey with a tranquil canoe trip on a lake inhabited by sungrebes, nightjars and herons. 

Lunch and dinner today will take place at our resort, where you will be treated to the freshest and most exotic local produce.

Amazon Jungle Cruise

Calama (Chile)

Day 14: Friday 20 July

After lunch on our private jet, we land in Calama, Chile, the starting point of our journey to the Atacama Desert.  We are immediately driven an hour to San Pedro de Atacama, the base for our explorations, and the location of our luxurious residence, the Alto Atacama Desert Lodge and Spa. While just three kilometres from the city centre, it is set in its own tranquil valley surrounded by a terracotta-coloured ridge, which you can gaze at from the hotel’s outdoor lounge spaces.

This evening, we dine at Caur, the acclaimed restaurant set within our hotel. Caur sources their ingredients from the surrounding region, allowing the restaurant to give directly back to the community. 

Calama

Day 15: Saturday 21 July

On our first full day in the Atacama Desert, you are free to choose how to spend your morning. Select from these Your World experiences.

  • Take in a bird’s eye view of the gorgeously alien landscape with a sunrise hot air balloon flight. We’ll pack you a picnic breakfast for this 45-minute experience.
  • Learn about the history of the area. The Gustavo Le Paige Archaeological Museum contains over 380,000 Pre-Columbian artifacts from the indigenous Atacameño culture. We also stop to admire the town’s adobe church and its craft market.

We return to our lodge for lunch and to catch up on our morning discoveries. That afternoon, a new selection of Your World experiences awaits, offering up the iconic vistas of the Atacama Desert.

  • See Salar de Atacama, Chile’s largest salt flats. On the way, we visit the Escondida Mine and Toconao, a small colonial town built entirely of white volcanic stone. At the salt flats, we take a gentle 20 minute walk to Laguna Chaxa, home to large flocks of flamingos. Watch as the salt flats take on the fiery colours of the breathtaking sunset.
  • Walk the Valley of the Moon. Its sand dunes and rocky outcrops were sculpted over millions of years by wind and water. At a viewpoint overlooking both the valley and the Andean volcanoes, we settle in for nature’s extraordinary show - the sunset, with a cocktail in hand.

With those memories fixed forever, we travel back to our lodge for dinner.

Calama

Day 16: Sunday 22 July

Explore more of the Atacama’s unique and enchanting places. Choose from these Your World experiences.

  • Take off across the desert on a full-day journey to see the Mano de Desierto, the Hand of the Desert, a giant sculptured hand that rises dramatically from the sand.
  • Let yourself be surprised with the striking turquoise of the Tebenquiche Lagoons. Go for a swim in the water, so salty you’ll automatically float.
  • Visit a place 45 minutes away from San Pedro de Atacama, but 10,000 years back in time. The Hierbas Buenas area contains petroglyphs created by the Atacameño people, representing their daily life and animals. We visit the Rainbow Valley, where different mineral deposits have left their mark on the rocks here. You’ll see streaks of every colour, sometimes all on the same hillside.
  • And if you missed the sunrise balloon flight, it is again available this morning.

For those on a morning activity, we meet for lunch back at the lodge. This afternoon, choose from the same Your World experiences from yesterday. Visit the Salar de Atacama salt flats or the Valley of the Moon. Once the sun sets, travel back to your lodge for a special gala dinner under the stars.

Hanga Roa (Easter Island)

Day 17: Monday 23 July

Our private jet lands in Hanga Roa, the only town on Easter Island, in the early afternoon. We drive to the abandoned village of Orongo, a collection of stone houses perched on the lip of the extinct Rano Kau volcanic caldera. On one side, the 300 metre cliff affords dizzying views of the ocean. On the other, a gentle grassy slope leads down to the crater’s freshwater lake.

We are here to see the moai, and at Ahu Tahai, we catch our first sight of the magnificent stone statues. After that, we head to the architecturally-distinct Explora Rapa Nui resort, where local elders welcome us to their land with traditional singing and dancing.

This evening, we dine in at the Explora’s acclaimed restaurant, tantalising our taste buds with several courses featuring exotic local produce. You might find plantain and guava making appearances, along with fish caught that very morning.

Moai - Easter Island, Rapa Nui, Chile

Hanga Roa

Day 18: Tuesday 24 July

This morning, you have the option of greeting the day at Ahu Tongariki, home to some of the island’s tallest moai.  After the sun has risen, we head to Rano Raraku, a volcanic crater still littered with nearly 400 of the statues, many incomplete. This is where the stone for every single moai was quarried.

We then visit the beach of Anakena, where Polynesian settlers first landed after crossing the Pacific in dugout canoes. It is the perfect setting for the traditional Polynesian show we witness, led by an elder. After the show, we leave Easter Island, the ingenuity of its stonemasons fresh in our minds.

Papeete (Tahiti)

Day 18: Tuesday 24 July

Our private jet lands in Papeete, Tahiti in the afternoon.  We immediately transfer to a waiting catamaran for the 30-minute ride to Moorea, our home for the next two languid days. We will be staying in the overwater bungalows at the Hilton Moorea, no less. The bungalows fan out across the lagoon, just off the beach, between Moorea’s two iconic bays. Our arrival has been timed for the magnificent Tahitian sunset, which you can enjoy from your own private sun deck.

This evening, dinner is kept casual. Choose from the hotel’s selection of restaurants, offering mouthwatering Polynesian and international flavours. Or, venture a little further to the highly-rated Moorea Beach Café for Polynesian French fusion cuisine.

Moorea

Day 19: Wednesday 25 July

Truth be told, one of the best ways to enjoy Moorea is to do nothing. Lay on the beach, take a nap or do both together. But for something a little more strenuous, you may choose from these Your World experiences.

  • Spend the morning exploring the lagoon in a boat and get up close to the marine life. Feed blacktip reef sharks and manta rays.
  • Come for a picnic lunch buffet on a secluded motu reserved especially for us.
  • See the rest of Moorea on an island tour that takes us to the Belvedere Lookout, a pineapple plantation and local pearl shops offering French Polynesia’s famous black pearls.

That evening, we gather for an extravagant farewell dinner on the beach, complete with Polynesian hula performers,  fire eaters and gin and tonics in hand.

Day 20-21: Thursday 26 July - Friday 27 July

Reluctantly, we board our private jet headed for home.  As you contemplate your favourite parts of our journey, allow our inflight crew to pamper you for the last time. We cross the international dateline and land in Sydney the following day - 27 July, where we say our goodbyes. We hope to see you again on your next Captain’s Choice journey.

Chile

Everything has been Considered & Included

Let’s face it, travelling can be a chore, distracting you from the new and fascinating places you are in. We’ve moved everything mundane behind the scenes. You will never have to carry a map. Or luggage. Or small change for tips. Everything is included, accommodation, all dining and drinks, travel insurance, and sightseeing. When available, we even supply internet at your hotel. Our Valet Luggage service is also included - we pick up your luggage up and make sure that they arrive safely at your next hotel. We also provide home-to-airport-to-home transfers. And just in case, a doctor travels with us too.

Your World Experiences

Arriving in an exotic destination is one thing. But getting under its skin to reveal its true colours is something altogether different – something few of us will seldom experience. Which is why we’ve curated an exclusive collection of experiences, unique to every Captain’s Choice journey, called Your World. Your invitation to rare and amazing things other travellers only ever dare dream of. Limited to 12 guests per group, you’ll feel as though it’s been designed just for you.

A place to call home

Our residences are benchmarks of luxury, usually in a central location, and more often than not, have a history to tell. You might find yourself, on one night, in a centuries-old monastery restyled into rooms of the most magnificent creature comforts. The next, cocooned in your private jungle cabana.

Luxury Hotel Entrance

It's not what you know

Your World Hosts are made up of a Tour Manager, Doctor, Tour Hosts, English-speaking local guides and, new this year, a Concierge. For insider knowledge of your destination, there is no better person to ask. Our Concierge will make bookings for you at the best restaurants, and can tell you where the best pisco sour is to be had. Our guest to staff ratio is never more than 10:1, allowing you to savour your experience without interruptions of the pedestrian kind.

Meals to remember

Every meal is a chance to discover something new and delicious, and to connect with the culture through your taste buds. You’ll often be dining among locals, where the ambience, as much as the flavours, make the evening memorable. On special evenings, expect gala dinners at locations closed off exclusively for us. There is not a boring meal to be found.

YOUR HOME IN THE AIR

Seldom can we dismiss the demands of schedules. But when we want to escape those demands, we travel by private jet. Here, the journey becomes an indulgence of the highest order, and exactly what you deserve. With your comfort paramount, we promise no overnight flights. Lounge, nap, nibble, sip and feast all-flight long. Our devoted cabin crew excels at pampering guests. When you land, you will be refreshed and ready for new adventures. While a Boeing 757 normally seats 230, your Captain’s Choice 757 has been customised to provide complete comfort to just 50 privileged guests. The cabin features handmade Italian leather, all-business class seats that recline a full 180° into a lie-flat bed. You, your luggage and your shopping do not ever have to fight for space. You’ll be enjoying delightful gastronomic creations – our onboard chef prides himself on delivering only the freshest and most delicious of meals. Dom Pérignon flows freely, as it should, and our bar offers premium labels, alongside a carefully curated wine list, to please the most discerning of palates.

WALK RIGHT ON AND OFF

When you travel by private jet, you’ll be flying direct to cities on routes no regular airline travels, experiencing a level of service no regular airline provides. As one of only 50 guests, and with a team to take care of you, the immigration process is not yours to worry about. Whenever we can, we will fast track immigration and bypass long security and customs lines. While we take care of the formalities at departure and arrival, your only job is to anticipate the next exciting leg of your journey.

Flying Solo?

Captain’s Choice travellers are remarkably easy going and friendly. But to make it easier, you will be invited to a solo travellers-only welcome reception at the start of the journey.Our naturally engaging World Hosts love to chat or share a meal, but are empathetic enough to know when you want some time alone.

RESIDENCES OF THE HIGHEST STANDARD

Welcome to your homes away from home. Each one has a certain something that sets it apart from every other residence at its location. Whether for its history, cultural significance or natural setting, we’ve selected only the very best.

Luton Hoo Hotel, London

Luton Hoo is a lovingly restored country manor 40 minutes away from the city, surrounded by formal gardens, rolling parklands and meadows. Pillared halls, elegant lounges and luxurious rooms recall the gracious living of times past. This residence is a perfect introduction to the private jet style of travel.

Hamilton Princess and Beach Club, Bermuda

It is the premier resort in Bermuda, overlooking the mesmerising waters of Hamilton Harbour. Also known as the Pink Palace, it has played host to the island’s most famous guests since its opening in 1885. A blend of classic and contemporary furnishing throughout promises the most relaxing of rests. But the highlight is the Beach Club, a private stretch of pure, white sand reserved just for guests.

Kempinski Manzana De Gómez, Havana

The grand, European-influenced Manzana de Gómez building opened in 1910 as Cuba’s first indoor shopping mall. It has undergone lavish renovations to restore its former grandeur and to elevate it to the luxurious standards of a Kempinski property. It is in the heart of old Havana, opposite The Floridita, Hemingway’s favourite cocktail bar.

Hotel Camino Real, Antigua

Placed in the centre of the World Heritage-listed city of Antigua Guatemala, the Camino Real maintains a distinctly Spanish colonial style throughout. Collonaded buildings contain rooms set around leafy courtyards, creating an atmosphere both refined yet relaxing. Inside, the rooms come with plush beds and pillow menus to ensure a most restful stay.

Sofitel Legend Santa Clara, Cartagena

Once a monastery, the Santa Clara is now the opposite of somber austerity. Situated in the heart of the old town, with views of the Caribbean, the rooms are decorated in a lush colonial style. Wood ceilings and floors reference its earlier life and Hermès toiletries complete the pampering package. An interesting fact - Mike Newell’s 2007 movie adaptation of Love In The Time Of Cholera was filmed here.

Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica, Puerto Maldonado

Equally sustainable as it is luxurious, the Inkaterra allows you to feel lost in the jungle while still enjoying fluffy robes, multiple course meals and spa treatments. The resort consists of just 35 thatched roof cabanas, set far apart enough that it is as though the rainforest is solely yours. All 35 cabanas will be occupied exclusively by our group.

Alto Atacama Desert Lodge And Spa

This desert retreat is set in its own breathtaking valley, surrounded by dramatic ochre mountains and the clearest skies imaginable, perfect for stargazing. Traditional Atacameño art and plush furnishings make the interiors a refuge from hot desert days and cool nights, while six plunge pools on the grounds offer a refreshing break between adventures.

Explora Rapa Nui, Easter Island

Set high up on the south of the island, the architecturally stunning building is a low-lying organic form that spreads across the open landscape. The wood and stone guest rooms spiral off the central, circular building, blending seamlessly with the environment. All come with ocean views. The entire resort has been reserved exclusively for us.

Hilton Moorea Resort And Spa, Tahiti

The epitome of island chic, the Hilton Moorea is located on the most stunning spot on all of Moorea, which some have called ‘the most beautiful island in the world’. All overwater bungalows allow direct access to the crystal clear lagoon below which teems with colourful marine life. Thatch roofs meet plush beds and modern conveniences to provide you with a truly indulgent castaway experience.
