According to Polynesian legend, Tahitian pearls were the first lights to flicker across the universe. Given by the Creator to Tane—god of harmony and beauty—the pitch-black pearls illuminated the vaults of heaven and birthed the stars. Follow in the footsteps of island folklore and brighten up your state of mind with this Escape: a six-day trip to Tahiti or neighboring Moorea from Travelscene.

Choose five nights of double-occupancy accommodations in a Garden View Room ($1,999 per person departing November through December, 2012, or $2,099 per person departing January through March, 2013) or Overwater Motu Bungalow ($2,499 per person departing November through December, 2012, or $2,559 per person departing January through March, 2013) at the InterContinental Tahiti Resort. If you prefer Moorea, opt for five nights of double-occupancy accommodations in a Beach Bungalow at InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa ($2,299 per person departing November through December, 2012, or $2,399 per person departing January through March, 2013).*

Soar above the glowing waters of the Pacific with included round-trip flights from Los Angeles's LAX International Airport to Faa'a International Airport in Papeete, Tahiti. You'll steer clear of cloudy travel arrangements—all ground and ferry transportation, airlines taxes, fuel surcharges, and hotel fees are included.

"French Polynesia is a mesmerizing wonderland of reef-fringed islands and translucent aqua lagoons," says Lonely Planet. "Shamelessly chic and seductive, it's the kind of place where the rich and famous come to play and hedonistic honeymoon fantasies are realized. The epitome of the Pacific dream, this is one Garden of Eden so beautiful it's hard to believe it really exists."

You'll begin the brilliant journey with a meet and greet and receive a flower lei, then settle into your luxe quarters. Accommodations reflect traditional Polynesian aesthetics and are located in ideal proximity to live entertainment, oceanfront pools, and gourmet dining—daily American breakfast is included with your stay.

At the InterContinental Tahiti Resort, rise and shine in a Garden View Room with a private terrace facing lush vegetation. Or, dive off the deck of an Overwater Motu Bungalow, perched on stilts mere feet above a sublime lagoon.

On the neighboring island of Moorea, the InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa offers Beach Bungalows set in the shade of swooning palms just steps from the water's edge. Guests will relish an included excursion on the lagoon with a picnic lunch. In the natural refuge of these shallows, the resort team cares for three bottlenose dolphins and rehabilitates injured sea turtles.

Tahiti—a beacon of Polynesian culture and tropical beauty—is the lustrous pearl of the South Pacific. Get your bearings with an included half-day Circle Island Tour from Marama Tours. "A Circle Island Tour, or a drive around Tahiti, is the best way to spend a day seeing the island's outlying sights and a bit of old Polynesia," says Frommer's.

You'll have ample opportunity to immerse yourself in the South Pacific experience. Snorkel through waves of stingrays and sharks in Cook's Bay, dive amid the wreckage of a cargo ship and seaplane at The Wrecks, or hike to the stunning views from Te Pari Cliffs.

A shell necklace departure gift ensures you'll always remember your glimmering getaway. Filled with jaw-dropping scenery, this Escape to the South Pacific is sure to light up your universe.

*Rates are per person based on double occupancy (see fine print).

  • "Hands down, this is the best luxury resort on the island. The InterContinental is as posh as Tahiti gets. Marble bathrooms, plush canopies, and Moorea views from private balconies are standard both in the rooms and romantic overwater bungalows."
