Tahiti and Moorea
Beaches, warm water, tropical breezes. In April, I had the opportunity to travel to the islands of Tahiti and Moorea. What a beautiful part of the South Pacific! Swimming with sharks and jet skiing with dolphins jumping the wakes of the jet skis were both incredible! The Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort and Spa is a beautiful property with something to offer everyone. Tours, such as the jet ski experience, an ATV tour through the island, and of course swimming with sharks and rays. All are offered at the hotel. My room wasn't an over the water bungalow, but all of the rooms have the same configuration. This hotel offers many over the water bungalows. We had a lovely get to know each other party in one of the over the water bungalows and saw a beautiful sunset that evening. The food and staff were wonderful. The food with fresh fish and the amazing desserts were truly memorable! You arrive by ferry from the island of Tahiti to Moorea in just 45 minutes. The ferry has food, pastries, and coffees to eat and welcome you to the island. Le Meridien on the island of Tahiti is a nice place to stay at the beginning of your vacation. You can explore the Tahitian museum, the Monoi oil factory, and the botanical gardens. The rooms are large and many have balconies. There are also several over the water bungalows. The shallow beach is great for wading in or small children. The food was good. There is a Tahitian pearl store just off the lobby. Our transfer from the airport was about 20 minutes.
