We came from less awesome places: the rooms (over-water bungalows) are sensational, enormous and splendid. When we arrived the place seemed so vast and groomed and manicured it was almost laughable. The prices for extras are, by any measure, insane. and yet....after 4 languorous and luxurious days we wept when we had to leave. If you can manage to ignore the angst of the prices and relax into the experience it is truly wonderful. Is it worth it? Who can say? With all French Polynesia has to offer -- water, fish, glorious reefs, charm and beauty this is likely among the best. But beware the cost. We went as a family and if we had bothered to leave for dinner on the main island (the hotel is on a motu) the cost of the shuttle boat alone would have been about $240. My husband called it the "penalty" for leaving. But we couldn't be bothered and we had lovely meals in our bungalow instead.
The marine biologist Olivier is charming and inspiring and offers one of the highlight (and best value) experiences. My sons reported the (exorbitant) Jet Ski excursion was their highlight....we mostly avoided the spa and the honeymooners and were relieved to see there were families too.
