A graceful sailing yacht is the perfect way to experience the true wonder of Tahiti. We’ll let the trade winds fill our sails as we visit one legendary island after another, staying overnight in most to give you time to swim and snorkel in crystal-clear lagoons, meander through lush rainforests, and experience the fascinating Polynesian culture from tikis to tiare flowers.
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.
