After a bit of a rough start with finding it difficult to contact this hotel, it all got sorted in the end and our trip there was heaven on earth! I really couldn't fault anything from the room to the level of staff attention and service!
* Large beautiful rooms with two outter decks, one that is in the shade and one lower deck where you can get a bit of a tan :)
* Our room request was met and we got a mountain view and the hut was in shallow water as i can't swim.
* Perfect balance between tahitian culture and modern comfort. Staff were a mix between french and locals which made it feel like we had a tahitian experience
* Free polynesian dance shows during buffet nights and you can go on stage to have a dance too if you like. They also stay behind to take photos with you
* Staff spoke fluent english and understood all requests
* Staff are there to meet all your needs eg. we got calls everynight asking if for dinner reservations and they even gave us a front row seat to the dance show!
* Resort is not overcrowded, private and luxurious
* Food was great but a bit pricey so it's worth getting half board
* we went in mid november and the weather was beautiful
* A photo of us in front of the mountain was a thoughtful parting gift
Improvements (i thought these were minor)
* very pricey but all good things come at a price so just forget about the money and just enjoy!
* No air con in the separate toilet
* shower started to look a little aged with tile grouting looking a bit dirty / mouldy
* no air con in the restaurants made it a bit hot and uncomfortable some nights
* Timetable of the sister shuttle wasn't ideal. Big gap between the mid morning boats.
* the shark explorer excursion was great!
* All rooms are beautiful but try to not get one where the beach is as it won't be as private. The huts at the end have the best views but could be noisy when jet ski's and boats go past. We were in room 123 and it was perfect!
I had read a couple of posts on here about money being stolen but stupidly didn't really think of it again. I didn't put my wallet in the safe on the first night and realised when i looked in my wallet when we were checking out and found 150AUD missing (i had the equivalent in francs so about 12k so it was obvious it went missing as i hadn't used my wallet once the whole trip). I didn't report it as it was my fault for not talking better care of my things. So many ppl are going through your room each day it's important to keep this stuff locked up! I guess i was complacent because i thought it wouldn't happen at such an upper class resort but that was a lesson i learnt the hard way. So lock up and you'll have a perfect time there!
