I can not say enough good about Blue Heaven and its hosts, Monique and Elie. They are beautiful people who live in paradise. My husband and I travelled through many islands in French Polynesia, always staying at pensions. bLUe HEAVEN was the most beautiful, secluded and unique place we found. We choose pensions over hotels and resorts because at a pension, particularly this one, you feel the rythmn of the island, while at resorts, you feel a displaced Americanized vibe. The food that monique and elie prepared was delicious-----fresh red tuna, lightly seared in seseme seeds....bananas flombay...coconut milk infused fish...yum, yum, yum! The beds were plush. The snorkeling was unbelieveable! Nowwhere in French Polynesia will you find better FREe, self-guided snorkling. The island sits between the big water and the lagoon, so there is a nice current running in front of the place. All you have to do is get in, let the water guide you and observe the amazing corral and fish. I also became scuba certified while staying there because elie and monique had the hook up with an instructor. When i got certified, elie and monique made a big deal of it, opened wine and made me feel very special! I truly feel like i made a couple of friends and when---not if----i return, i will stay at no other place in French Polynesia than with elie and monique.
