Awesome! You're going to have a great time. I posted trip report on our blog: http://darcela.blogspot.com/2010/06/honeymoon-in-french-polynesia.html Definitely recommend getting dinner at Villa Mahana: (you probably need to reserve 2-3 months in advance, ask for the top table) As far as activities, we did spa at our hotel (Intercontinental Thalasso), jet ski, and 4x4 safari. I would recommend all but not the safari. I saw couples rented a small buggy car to go around the island (or you can bike too).Posted by msaputra
In Response to Re: BORA BORA BOUND!!! : Can you provide a rough estimate of what to expect in terms of cost for dinner at Villa Mahana? I'm on the fence as I've heard it's very expensive and we've already spent a ton for this honeymoon. Posted by JoanE2012
That's what we figured most meals would be there. Did you and your husband have any meals included? Ours includes breakfast and we were wondering if we could just take some of the fruit and items back to the room with us to snack on during the day. Did you pay around that much for every dinner you had? Were there any other restaurants we should look into? We talked about going ahead and making our reservation for the top table at Villa Mahana, we are so excited about that! Posted by BeamingBride22Be
FI and I are strongly considering Bora Bora right now (top choice!) for our May honeymoon. There is some great info here, thanks!
