PAINTING IN PARADISE - HUAHINE
In collaboration with Travel & Tonic and Hotel Relais Mahana Huahine, I am pleased to be now conducting the 'Painting in Paradise' workshops on the island of Huahine.
A nine day, all inclusive creative tour and workshop where you can immerse yourself in the beauty and ancient culture of the Island of Huahine, known as 'the garden of eden'.
(suitable for beginners to intermediate)
Hosted by artist Tania Wursig and Hotel Le Mahana Huahine.
With an exciting mix of discovery and art workshops, be inspired by the untouched beauty and breathtaking landscapes of this historic island.
With a strong focus on living 'artfully' you will create unique memories and capture experiences that you will hold onto for a lifetime.
Huahine is a 40-minute flight from Tahiti and rests in close proximity to Raiatea, Taha'a and Bora Bora. The island is divided into two parts: Huahine Nui (big) and Huahine Iti (small). The name Huahine, a variation of the Tahitian word vahine (woman), presumably refers to a mountain ridge resembling the outline of a pregnant woman—a symbol of the island's irrefutable fertility.
Huahine is exceptionally green—perhaps with envy, since fewer travelers frequent her sandy shores and lush hillsides than her favored counterparts, Moorea and Bora Bora. For this reason Huahine has retained the alluring essence and authenticity of early Polynesia. The locals pride themselves on preserving what they genuinely believe is the most picturesque island in Tahiti.
Huahine is an immense tropical jungle thriving with coconut plantations, vanilla orchids, banana groves, breadfruit trees and watermelon fields. Beyond its lush landscapes and bright blooms, Huahine is also a culturally preserved sanctuary with sacred temples hidden throughout dense vegetation. Undoubtedly, this island will leave you spellbound.
HOTEL LE MAHANA
Hotel Le Mahana Huahine is located in the heart of Avea Bay on the west coast of Huahine Iti and just a short distance from the village of Parea. It has a great location with its own private, white sand beach and coral garden right in front of the hotel.
The bungalows at Hotel Le Mahana Huahine are located either amidst a tropical garden or adjacent to the beach. The Deluxe Bungalows feature a private garden with shower area. All bungalows also feature a private terrace, free wireless internet in the lobby, 1 king size bed and 1 single bed, and air-conditioning.
