SINGAPORE -  Few things satisfy the soul like a quality vacation. Even fewer destinations quench the mind's thirst for tranquillity, comfort and scenic beauty quite like the luxurious Hilton resorts in Tahiti, Moorea and Bora Bora. Set against a backdrop of crystalline water, luscious gardens and white sandy beaches, the resorts offer decadent accommodation, sumptuous cuisines, endless activities and an unsurpassed level of indulgence.

Fueling the idea that heaven really is a place on earth, each Hilton resort celebrates Polynesian culture with a mix of local and natural materials - including bamboo and mother of pearl - with the latest in technology and comfort. The trio of oceanfront destinations offer numerous activities, from open-air massage using traditional Tahitian oils through to shark feeding and sunset cruises. Whether you're seeking a romantic honeymoon destination or an overwater conference room, one of the Hilton's three resorts in French Polynesia is bound to have it.

South Pacific Management, Tahiti's leading resort management company with a strong track record in managing resort properties. has been delegated the management of the three Hilton hotels of French Polynesia. South Pacific Management currently manages a portfolio of 12 resorts throughout Tahiti and her Islands.

Top in TahitiAfter almost 50 years of internationally renowned service, the Hilton Hotel Tahiti is still wowing guests with its dreamy setting. The first hotel in Tahiti to use Polynesian aesthetics in its design, the Hilton Hotel Tahiti offers 188 rooms and suites, each with its own ocean or garden view. Immerse yourself in nature with island tours, waterfall treks and local snorkelling, or get adventurous with a 4WD safari tour or visit to the local markets. After watching a spectacular sunset from your air-conditioned villa, delight in delectable cuisine at the resort's open-air restaurant before hitting the dance floor (and the cocktails!) in the infamous Quinn's Bar. Wake up to the sound of waves gently crashing and do it all over again.

Magical MooreaA mere 17 Kilometers catamaran ride from Hilton Hotel Tahiti will take you to the magical island of Moorea, where volcanic rocks meet with turquoise oceans. Situated on this tropical oasis is the Hilton Moorea Lagoon and Spa, which boasts 54 overwater villas - where guests can watch local marine turtles, sharks and tropical fish swim beneath them - as well as 52 garden bungalows. Surrounded by idyllic views, guests can take advantage of the infinity pool, overwater bar or new 18-hole Green Pearl Moorea Golf Course.

For those seeking something more daring, the resort offers scuba diving, kayaking, romantic picnics on deserted isles, sunset cruises, bicycle rides, private shark and stingray feeding tours and an array of traditional fire dances viewed whilst dining on a mix of Polynesian and international cuisine.

The boundless beauty of Bora BoraFurther northwest, nestled on the lovely private island of Motu Toopa, is the Hilton Bora Bora Nui Lagoon and Spa, accessible only by private luxury yacht. The resort offers 120 luxury suites and villas featuring mahogany canopy beds, marble tiles and glass floor viewing panels (overwater villas only).

Soak up the panoramic views from your own overwater villa, where breakfast is brought daily by canoe, or take advantage of the lush surrounds of Moto Tapu, a private island on the resort that can be used for picnics or special events. Adventure arrives in the form of jet-ski rides, shark feeds and scuba diving, while relaxation can be found in the hilltop spa that boasts 360-degree views and a Jacuzzi for two.
