    • Tahita, Moorea and Bora Bora - is this possible in one week

      by weiskittel Online Now Mar 6, 2014 at 5:23 PM

      My husband and I have one week to see Tahiti, Moorea and Bora Bora. Is this possible? Or should we just stick to Tahiti and Moorea? We're arriving in PPT on a Sat. and leaving the next Sat. We have never been to the South Pacific and I don't know when or if we'll ever be back again.

    • Taha'a or Bora Bora

      by JackCraig Online Now Oct 16, 2013 at 12:15 AM

      I am not sure whether to stay on Taha'a or Bora Bora.
      They both look amazing however Taha'a looks exclusive and the surrounding water looks better in some photos although it is more expensive for the hotel! Bora Bora looks like more activities and fun but just need some advice.

    • Hilton Nui - LA to Tahiti Flight details

      by rtd101 Online Now Jul 10, 2013 at 11:53 AM

      We are staying at the Hilton Nui and need more info please. What does it cost to use the entertainment consoles on the Air Tahiti flight from LA to Tahiti? What is the cost of any of the in flight meals? What type of snack foods does the store on the main island have? Like chips, pretzels, cupcakes, pastries, trail mix, cookies...?? We have some mobility issues so.... What is the distance from the restaurant to the OWB 104? Has anyone had any luck confirming a specific OWB? Near which OWB is the ice machine? Are there loungers on the beach? I've read conflicting reports so.. can you or can you not empty the mini fridge and use it for your personal items, then replace the stuff before you leave to avoid being charged for it?

      Hi,

      Does anyone have a map with the OWB at the IC Le Moana? I would be interested on a map that shows the bungalow numbers. The ones I could find on the internet show only the bungalow disposal, but not their numbers.
      We have booked an OWB horizon, any room tips?
      Thanks!

      Hi,
      we are planning to go to Bora Bora end of July. Since we prefer to pay cash in restaurants, shops, etc, could anyone tell me where is the best to exchange our money? Should we do it in Tahiti, before arriving to the island? I am thinking maybe the exchange rate on the island is not as good.
      Thanks in advance!

    • Check-In Baggage Weight Limit

      by papayaman Online Now Mar 11, 2013 at 5:21 PM

      Our Air Tahiti Nui flight from and to California has a one bag weight allowance of 50 lbs per passenger. The Air Tahiti Interisland flight has a check-in bag weight limit of 44 lbs. I am told that our bags will be transferred to Air Tahiti once we land in Papeete so there should be no issue going to Bora Bora if we are between 50 and 44 lbs.
      What about on the going home flight? If we are over 44 lbs when we check-in with Air Tahiti in Bora Bora, will we be penalized or does that fact that we are connecting to an International Flight give us the 50 lbs allowance with no penalty. We would like to do a little shopping in Bora Bora.

      When we return home to the U.S. from Bora Bora we will of course be connecting to our U.S. flight via Papeete.
      Will our checked bags with Air Tahiti be transferred to our Air Tahiti Nui flight automatically at Papeete? We will have to check-in with Air Tahiti Nui in Papeete - will we still be in the Secure Zone or do we leave the Secure Zone to check-in at the Air Tahiti Nui Ticket counter to get our boarding passes , go through Security again and then go to our departure gate?

    • Is Snorkeling on Your Own Safe? And is there any snorkel spots close to my resort Pearl Beach???

      by aabramson Online Now Dec 27, 2012 at 1:07 PM

      Our Honeymoon is booked and we arrive April 28th at the Pearl Beach Resort on Bora Bora!!! So excited!

      It is imperative that I stick to a budget while visiting here because to be honest I couldn't afford to book this trip to begin with! It is a gift from my parents, this Honeymoon vacation of a lifetime, and I am so very thankful! However, I will have a budget of about 2500 US dollars to work with for 2 people! I want to be able to snorkel and do some excursions but everything is so expensive, and while we do have breakfast at our Resort covered, we still have to factor in Lunch and Dinner, which especially at the Pearl is very expensive!

      Oh well, I think I can make this work anyways, but I just wanted some advice from you all!

      I want to kayak from our resort (Pearl Beach) and snorkel areas I have been researching, but since there are sharks and I'm not an experienced snorkeler I wanted to know if this was getting a little too risky? I figure since all reviews I read say that snorkeling is safe in Bora Bora that this would be okay to do, but most of those reviews are almost always definitely "guided tours."

      I hope nobody thinks of my as complaining here either, I am an avid traveler but French Polynesia is the cream of the crop, and the pricetag definitely says a lot about how much people give up to get here! I just don't have that much money and want to be able to get by on some cheaper meals if possible and still be able to do excursions, or at least find out if I can do some of these by myself??
