Arriving in fabled Tahiti-Niu and being whisked in minutes to your hotel at the Intercontinental Resort was magical , and then to wander past the reception to see the amazing vista over the swimming pool and onward to the volcanic peaks of Moorea - what was not to like ?
Great location , great aspect out over the ocean . Its a big resort but all seems to work perfectly for the guests who immediately feel at home ,even after an overnight flight that arrives at 1 in the morning .
A cold beer or one of a huge range of cocktails over the huge pool area as the sun goes down over Moorea has to be one of those defining moments for the weary traveller . Just awesome . And the service is top class , even for the visitor struggling to show off his lousy French. Friendly staff who cannot do enough for you as they chime "ia orana" at every opportunity , a bit like the warm "bulas" of Fiji - and they sound like they mean it .
Dont miss the evening spectaculars , especially the Marquesa Dance Show - you will have to take part - the male dancers are just too big and muscular to say no to and the sumptuous buffet of island cuisine , while maybe not to everyone's taste was an eye opener .
We'll be back . Mauruuru (thank you)
