Motu MahanaMotu Mahana
is a private island paradise owned by Paul Gaugin Cruises
and accessible only to guests of the m/s Paul Gauguin
. Cruise over on a complimentary “beacher” vessel to the stunning lagoon, located 20 minutes from the coast of Taha’a, and you’ll be greeted by traditional Polynesian songs performed by Les Gauguines and Les Gauguins, the ship’s cultural ambassadors. On land, sip sweet cocktails served in coconut shells, explore the sandy islet on foot, or settle into a chaise longue with a good book. Get your fitness fix with swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, and beach sports such as volleyball and badminton. For lunch, join a BBQ feast and check out Polynesian activities throughout the day, from basket-weaving to stylish pareo-tying. Or relax with a massage in an overwater therapy room at the spa.
