The trade winds of French Polynesia have enticed sailors for centuries – and now those same beautiful breezes fill the sails of Wind Spirit as we sail through the windward and leeward Society Islands to the serene natural beauty of the Tuamotu Islands, where pristine atolls and crystal lagoons welcome you to a hidden paradise.
A Complimentary Windstar Private Event
Bora Bora: Celebration Festival
Bora Bora is surrounded by a number of tiny islets called "motu" – and you will spend the evening on a secluded motu accompanied only by other Windstar guests. You will be welcomed to the motu with a traditional flower lei.
Your private feast on the beach promises to be extraordinary. Tender suckling pig will be slowly steamed in a traditional “ahima’a,” a Tahitian earth oven. The oven is preheated with a wood fire. Then porous volcanic rock is scattered over the wood until it is completely covered. When the fire goes out, the rocks are leveled and the pig placed on top. Banana leaves are laid over the top to cover the ahima’a completely. Finally, earth is shoveled on top so no heat escapes and the pig cooks for up to four hours until the meat is so tender it almost melts in your mouth.
When your meal is complete and the stars begin to shine, the evening entertainment will begin. Dressed in loincloths, fire dancing experts will dazzle with high-speed acrobatic moves and throwing flames so hot you'll feel the warmth ten feet away.
