Does it get any better than this? Welcome to Vanilla Island

Taste Vanilla Island!

Are you sick of these cold, wintry days, and ready to just pack up and leave? Have you thought of "Vanilla Island"?

This beautiful place is Le Taha'a Island in Tahiti, also known as "The Vanilla Island" because of its many vanilla plantations and their precious cream-coloured orchids.

Those who have visited this extraordinary place – part of the Society Islands group - say it's one of the sweetest holiday destinations in the world because of its natural beauty and remoteness from the busy outside world.
