Thank you for checking in. We received your kind card too. We had an incredible time in French Polynesia. You did an outstanding job putting together the many details to create a wonderful experience. You thought of everything and took care of everything. Thank you!
Thank you in particular for the referral in Moorea for Tahitian pearls, Heivai Black Pearl. Not only did they have high quality pearls (mostly A quality) but also had great prices. We mentioned you referred us and they gave 25% off! Wow! We purchased some beautiful earrings for me and pendants for our moms and my sister (who stayed at our home to take care of the moms). All beautiful and great prices. We looked at pearls on every other island and no one came close to what we paid for what we got. Hands down, the single best referral for the entire trip.
All three resorts were lovely and we enjoyed them all. The meal plans were definitely the way to go. We had breakfast daily + 1 lunch at the first two resorts and that worked out great as Matt and I really only eat 2 meals day. For Bora Bora we a plan for breakfast and dinner daily. The dinners were superb. We only made it breakfast once but it was delightful. I think by that time of the vacation we were fully adjusted to the time difference and sleeping later:)
The Taha'a 4x4 tour was really great. The guide took us to a local rum factory too, which was a nice surprise. The asked for everyone's approval before doing so since it wasn't on the itinerary. Glad he took there because it was very nice and it was fun to get to taste some locally made rum.
All of the bungalows were amazing and get larger and better as we went from one resort to another. The best part of the trip though was the meeting and talking with the local Polynesian people. They were so welcoming and gracious. They were eager to tell us about their cultural and we were eager to learn. Definitely the highlight of the trip. Thank you again for an amazing and very memorable vacation experience!!!
