Motu Teta, a private island on the remote Rangiroa Atoll in the Tuamotu of French Polynesia, almost looks as if it was built from the world’s collective dreams of a perfect island escape. Awash in sea breezes and practically electric with romance, the island has only an exquisite honeymoon villa and a separate main house where meals are served, cooked fresh by the island’s chef. There’s no email, phone or TV, but there’s a lagoon full of tropical marine life, private beaches, palm tree views and Tiputa Pass, one of the world’s top dive sites. Experience enough peace and quiet here to calm your soul for a blissful stretch.
