If you want to make your next holiday the trip of a lifetime, we’ve found the answer. A high-end charter yacht company in Tahiti has come up with a unique and ultra-luxurious way to explore the lagoons of Bora Bora like never before: in your own, floating villa.
Created by ELYT Charter Tahiti, the overwater villa boasts four bedrooms, and can be kept moored in stationary, or take you between the most beautiful islands of Tahiti, with your own dedicated captain on hand to cruise your villa around the spectacular island paradise – all without leaving your swim-up suite. This has got to be the ultimate way to experience the turquoise hues of Bora Bora.
The high-end houseboat features a beautiful sun deck, a rooftop lounge offering breathtaking 360 degree views, a fully equipped kitchen (so you can bring your own private chef, naturally), and a living and dining area which opens right out onto the South Pacific.
Boasting four bedrooms and up to eight guests, it also comes complete with barbecue, inflatable kayaks, inflatable SUP boards, snorkelling gear, flat screen TV and sound system. Now that sounds like a party we want to be at.
The floating villa is inspired by ancient Polynesian canoes and the traditional Tahitian overwater way of life, and built in the form of an ultra-modern solar catamaran.
The eco-friendly ethos of the catamaran, designed and built in Tahiti, also extends into using all natural resources to power it. Plus, having no diesel engine means total silence, no smell and no pollution – so you can rest assured you are helping to preserve the beautiful French Polynesian surroundings as you soak them up.
Not only is it incredibly cool, but it comes at a fraction of the cost of a regular overwater Bora Bora bungalow, too.
Bookings are open now, with charters set to begin from March 2021, with a starting price of €1,500 per night for a minimum stay of three nights, which includes return airport transfers to the houseboat.
