      Transportation from PPT airport to my hotel on Tahiti Island

      by sharkbait98 Online Now Mar 13, 2013 at 4:14 PM

      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)

      Airport Transfers in Papeete

      by petwouters Online Now Jun 13, 2011 at 2:44 AM

      Hi everyone

      In September I'm visiting Tahiti with a group of 18 people in total and we need transfers from the airport to our hotel - can anyone recommend a good service? Taxis are not a real great option due to cost and the number of people we have, so I'm looking at either minivans or a bus...

      Thanks

      Snorkelling from the Bungalow - Plus Matira Point

      by lovinoz Online Now Jan 26, 2011 at 5:00 AM

      Thanks to everyone who has helped me with narrowing down an itinerary in Tahiti to celebrate our anniversary in July / August 2011. I am leaning towards spending most of our time on Bora Bora ... and finding choose resorts really difficult after reading dozens of tips on VT and TripAdvisor. The top three at the moment for us to have 3-5 nights in an overwater bungalow:

      1. Pearl Beach Resort
      2. Four Seasons
      3. Le Meridien

      I have read raving reviews of the Four Seasons, but the Le Meridien has the turtle santuary ... and the Pearl is a little cheaper therefore we could afford to stay a little longer. The Four Seasons and Le Meridien are closer to the Manta Dive site (I'm dying to snorkel / dive with mantas).

      I read one review of the Pearl saying the snorkelling is non-existent ... can anyone clarify / confirm if the snorkelling is good from the overwater bungalows at any of the three resorts above?? Snorkelling is one of the main things I plan to do while in the overwater bungalow, so I will be really disappointed if there is no coral or fish at all, just to find out I could have stayed at a different resort which had better snorkelling.

      We are also thinking about spending a few nights in a mid-range room near Matira Point to do some of the bigger excursions from there (half day dive trips etc) while we are paying less per night. Any suggestions for where to stay (or not to stay) would be welcomed.

      My husband and I are planning a trip to Tahiti to celebrate our anniversary. We have not decided exactly which islands we will visit yet ... but I would like to do some extra activities and curious where the BEST location is to do these things (considering value for money and beauty of the scenery). At the moment we are thinking of visiting Tahiti, Moorea and Bora Bora ... but open to other suggestions.

      We would appreciate any tips ... location, website if recommending a specific company to go through and indicative costs for the following activities:

      1. Helicopter flight
      2. Jet skiing
      3. Scuba diving (we both already have open water certifications and will bring snorkel gear but will need to the other dive equipment)

      Thanks! :)

      9-11 nights in Tahiti

      by lovinoz Online Now Jan 23, 2011 at 12:47 AM

      My husband and I are thinking of visiting Tahiti for 9-11 nights in July / August 2011 to celebrate our anniversary. Could anyone suggest an itinerary?

      We would like a minimum of 3 nights in an overwater bungalow at the Pearl Beach Resort on Bora Bora ... but the rest is flexible. Our budget is AUD10,000 for the whole trip inclusive of approx3,400 total for return international airfares. I would appreciate some guidance about which islands we should see and where to stay on those islands.

      Thanks in advance for your advice! :)

      Hello,

      I'm trying to plan a trip to Bora Bora during the month of February, but am finding the airfare to be quite steep (from Toronto, Canada). Is there a better time to fly that is a good time to visit? Also, any ideas as to where it would be cheaper to fly from? I have access to some airmiles, so I could get a free flight to LAX, Europe, etc.

      Thanks for any info.

    • Going to Tahiti, Moorea, and Bora Bora

      by graygoose Online Now May 17, 2010 at 1:55 PM

      Hello Everyone,
      I am going to Tahiti, Moorea, and Bora Bora next week for my honeymoon. I have never been to Tahiti and her islands before and my fiance and I can't wait. My fiance went to a bridal show and there was a booth that sold vacation packages to Tahiti. We checked out their website and contacted one of their Tahiti specialists about a possible package to Tahiti for our honeymoon. Wow, they were super fast on getting back with me and very knowledgeable. Has anyone else traveled with TahitianVacations?
      I am staying at the Intercontinental in Moorea and in Bora Bora. The specialist recommended the Intercontinental Thalasso in Bora Bora. Has anyone been to this resort? The images of the Thalasso look very nice.
