Robin L. Turner
This A-List veteran acknowledges that her area of expertise is a splurge, so she’s made it her mission to uncover value options at the islands’ top properties. Turn to her if you’re looking for an active vacation: she can schedule archaeologist-led treks on Huahine Island and snorkeling trips in Bora-Bora’s turtle- and leopard-ray-filled waters.
Discovery: Looking for a Polynesian souvenir? Turner knows where to shop. At the new Bora Bora Original, you’ll find chic beachwear and art by island designers, while L’Endroit, on Moorea, showcases jewelry—shells and black pearls strung on silk cords—and woven pareo wraps.
