Is staying in Bora Bora worth the cost? i could go to Paris for less.
I am trying to find the address of the little pearl store directly across the street from the entrance into the Intercontinental Resort on Moorea. The owner is into every type of business from ATV rentals to tours but his wife and daughter run this little pearl store that also sells Coke and milk. My wife is so happy with the multicolored pearl necklace that we bought there last November that she MUST send a thank you card.
Hey!!! I was just curious to know how getting to Vaitape from The pearl Works? Also if buying beer in the village is there any issues bringing it back to the hotel?
I want to know about a place full of natural wonders, and I want to know what´s natural variety in Bora Bora?
My wife and I would like to stay with a seventh day adventist family while in french polynesia. Could you help us in this respect?
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.
Just wondering what everyones experience with domestic air travel has been regarding booking beforehand or if it is best to book whilst there? We are going from end of October to mid-November, including Moorea (from Tahitit via ferry) and would like to hop over to Bora Bora. I would like to add Huanine or Maupitit but Huanine seems trickier. I'm a go-with-the-flow traveller and hate having to be somewhere by a certain time when I am enjoying a place, but don't want to miss out on some islands.
Thanks for your help!
What does moorea have that bora bora doesn't? If you were going to visit , which is the best of the two?
Trying to balance out rewards from card vs the fee (2.7%) what shoudl I do?
Leaving on Sunday....
Recently married, my husband and I are looking at Tahiti packages and there are so many. Packages that include breakfast, and/or activities/excursion. Do you recommend certain things in particular that we should look for? (ie if meals are expensive, to have meals or breakfast included)
We will like to visit the Hilton Nui, we know we have to take the shuttle boat, but dont know how long will the ride take from Vaitape to Hilton Nui.
Thanks for your reply
is that what the poster is really saying that the entire island is a tourist trap?
I am just looking for a beautiful country/resort to stay at for a holiday in January 2014 with my boyfriend. I'm looking for heat between 25-40 Degrees Celsius, I love the hot weather. I don't mind humidity but i prefer sunshine of course.
I don't really have a budget so feel free to say anything that comes to mind!! I just want a country with low rainfall but hot weather!
I know my location says French Polynesia but I really want any country/part of the world.
Also, I live in Australia so preferably not my own country as I want to visit a new and exciting one!
THANKS GUYS AND GIRLS!! 3
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?
We will be one day on each Island and would like to know your recommendations on tours; we are a senior couple that do not dive, but would love to get the most of our time on each Island. Also are the tours company in Bora Bora the same as Moorea and Tahiti ?
Thank you for your replies

We are planning our vacation to Moorea and Bora Bora. Has anyone used the Ferry for a day trip to Papeete? Is it easy enough to get to the Ferry Dock from and back to our Hotel in Moorea?
We are planning a trip to Tahiti for Christmas this year.
What is the good, bad and ugly of travel at that time of year>
Has anyone watched the sunset from the Royal Estate Terrace in Bora Bora? What is it like? Is it casual and would I be able to walk around freely and take pictures? How is the food?
It appears that the cruise line does not have a tour to the Gaugain Museum and Smith Bot Gardens. Can you get there by Le Truck?
Can you get to the museum on Le Truck? Appears that cruise line does not have a tour here
We are planning our honeymoon and we both like the Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort and the Intercontinental Resort. Price difference isn't really an issue. We want really great service, food, and an awesome over water bungalow. Can't decide between the two can anyone help?
How did you previous visitors to Bora Bora call Home?
I lilve in California and have Smart Phone service with AT&T.
I am told that our Hotel will have WiFi.
Will Google Voice work - calling from Bora Bora to California?
How do I get a Virtual Tourist Flag to take along on my vacation?
Any guidelines on Drinking Water? Should I stick to bottled water only. Should I avoid Ice in any beverage?
What type of Electrical Plug Adaptor should I bring to Bora Bora. I have read that the Hotels provide them, but I want to bring one just in case.
Should I book excursions before I leave for the islands or should I wait and do it through my hotel?
My husband and I love sandy beaches and snorkeling. We want to be close to restaurants and activity. Which part of the island is best for those things?
I found a company on Moorea that does tranfers from the dock to Cooks Bay for 1000 XPF/person each way based on two people. Is there such a thing on Tahiti? I don't want to pay the horrible taxi fair and I don't know how well Le Truk will work with my dive gear luggage? I look forward to your answers :o)
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?
