Most travelers tend to be a little suspicious when it comes to package deals, though they often work out to be a much better value than booking airfare plus hotel separately.
At the lower end, the $1,698 includes round-trip airfare from LAX to Papeete and 5 nights at the Intercontinental Tahiti Resort and Spa, valid for departures February 15, March 1, or March 8.
The lowest available fare from Los Angeles to Papeete is listed at $1,221 on Air Tahiti Nui, departing LAX on Thursday, March 8, returning from PPT on March 14. And checking directly with the hotel website, the lowest room rate for these dates is listed at $369 per night, or $2,164 total. At a savings of over $1,200, Air Tahiti Nui's air+hotel package is the better deal.
Again, this is for the least expensive hotel option, with some of the pricier packages offering stays in overwater thatched bungalows.
