Situated directly on the vast sandy beach of Pampelonne, a short distance from Saint Tropez, Kon Tiki resort provides you the illusion of traveling to white Polynesian sands. I would have preferred to take a long haul flight in normal years and explore the original version. Enter COVID-19, and this has suddenly become the next best thing.
Pampelonne beach is world-famous for its beach restaurants like Club Les Palmiers, my personal favorite, Club 55, Nikki Beach, or Cabane Bambou. The Kon Tiki resort is installed directly on the waterfront with many huts right onto the sand, so you can easily access these establishments and experience the party atmosphere of the Cote d’Azur in high season.
I stayed in a Tiki Hut with a view over the vineyards, which is all about privacy and a more subdued ambiance. They feature quirky and summery interiors and even have a jacuzzi styled pool. I quite liked the headboards in the master and the kid’s room, very crafty in style.
