Magical weddings in French Polynesia

Let yourself be carried away by its charm

French Polynesia: A Cradle and source of inspiration for great actors, intellectuals, writers, painters and singers for decades. Its landscapes have attracted artists such as Marlon Brando, Robert Louis Stevenson, Paul Gauguin, Charles Morice, Jacques Brel and Herman Melville.

No part of the world exerts the same attractive power upon the visitor…

Robert Louis Stevenson

We take care of even the smallest detail

Getting married in French Polynesia is one of the richest experiences you can have, that’s why at Arêna Pacific we specialise in beach weddings to make this moment perfect, unique and unforgettable.

Once the couple arrives at the airport they will be met by our team of consultants who are specialised in original and bespoke weddings. First of all, they will help you to get settled in the hotel, both the bride and groom and the guests, and will be at your disposal to answer any questions or wishes you may have, furnished always with the most popular smile in the world: the Polynesian smile.

We will focus especially on the costumes, given their uniqueness.

Choosing between more than 100 islands that make up the archipelago is difficult. We have to take into account that not all of them are inhabited, and others, given the difficulty of the terrain, are not suitable for a wedding, not to mention those that are very remote and difficult to reach. But don’t worry, the Arêna Pacific team will help you choose the best and most unforgettable one.

The first experience can never be repeated. The first love, the first sunrise, the first South Sea island, are memories apart and touched a virginity of sense

Robert Louis Stevenson

Weddings in Tahiti

It is the largest, the most imposing, the most exuberant, the mother earth, full of waterfalls, intense green vegetation, volcanoes, emerald sea, the inhabitants are in perfect harmony with the natural environment, beaches of fine white sand, luxury hotels on the ocean from whose rooms you can see whales in the wild and swim with them. A dream that Arêna Pacific makes come true.

Weddings in Moorea

It is a small atoll with a central island, also of intense colour and fertile vegetation. Its inhabitants continue to live in the same spirit as their ancestors, with a leisurely pace, always smiling, adorned with tattoos made from the finest whale bone punches and caring for the plant and marine environment that is their source of life. A wedding in Moorea according to the traditional rite will be an unforgettable memory.

Weddings in Bora Bora

Its name means “First Born” and in Haitian it is called Pora Pora.
Another earthly paradise impossible to forget, an atoll of crystalline waters teeming with marine life that you can easily explore as its waters are calm and with a very pleasant temperature.
The hotels with their famous “water hups” leave no one indifferent, as sleeping on the water is something we are not used to, as well as being very relaxing.

The modern human being has nowhere to go back to after seeing these islands

Paul Gauguin

Get to know the magic of Polynesia

The light, the colours of the reef, and the marine fauna at hand will remain in your eyes forever.

There are many things to do and see in Polynesia: diving, surfing, hiking in the mountains, climbing, contemplative life, tasting the tasty cuisine, observing the handicrafts…. all this range of activities will be possible thanks to Arêna Pacific which, don’t forget, will always be open to your suggestions too.

Paul Gauguin, after having travelled halfway around the world, having been financially ruined, living in poverty, without emotional rest and unable to find spiritual balance, decided to leave France and chose Polynesia as his destination.

An island that will entrap you

He was so impressed by the vegetation, the turquoise waters and the kindness of its inhabitants that he did not hesitate to stay and live in this incomparable and dreamy place.

He was so happy in the archipelago that he decided to live there forever. Here he fell in love and found happiness and balance, so much so that we can say that this restless painter found paradise.

Undoubtedly, for a painter like Gaugin, the bright colours of the islands would flood his palette and his life with rich and fertile tones in keeping with the exoticism of the place, which worked the miracle of making Gaugin smile at life.

In contrast with that light, with the black colour of the women’s hair, with a skin tone different from the European one, they provoked a creative birth which has left us with the painter’s best work.

Tetiaroa is beautiful beyond my capacity to describe. One could say that Tetiaroa is the tincture of the South Seas

Marlon Brando

Marlon Brando got to experience French Polynesia in 1962 whilst on location making the film “Rebellion on Board”. During the filming, he fell in love with the beautiful Polynesian actress Tarita Teriipaia, who became his third wife and with whom he had two children.

He liked the place so much that he decided to live there. In Tetiaroa, in addition to love and refuge, he found happiness, peace and tranquility.
