12 TAHITI Gauguin’s heaven on earth Before you head out into the Gauguinesque land and seascapes of the Tahitian islands, a pit stop at Papeete is in order for fine dining at L’Api’zzeria and Lou Pescadou, preferably on a Friday or Saturday night so you can hit the Dinghy Bar afterwards. Le Lotus set over the lagoon has probably the best location for a restaurant in the South Pacific, with technicolour sunsets over distant Moorea that are indescribable. Visit Marlon Brando’s island, TETIAROA, and see the incredibly rare tiare apetahi flower on the sacred island of Raiatea. Bora Bora inspires an orgy of superlatives: be there in November for the arrival of the outrigger canoe event Hawaiki Nui Va’a. Drop into Boutique Gauguin for the best of local artefacts. Black Pearls are not just to be coveted and worn, but also used for body buffing spa treatments that will leave you luxuriously silky smooth. With only six tables, you must go to Bloody Mary’s in Povai Bay and tuck into mahi mahi in coconut curry sauce: it’s divine. { tetiaroa } { 83 } Superyacht Living & Style Magazine 2013
