We ate dinner off of the premises most nights, but the breakfast was elaborate and fresh. There is nothing like Tahitian pineapple!! We did make several trips to...

We stayed here for our honeymoon and loved it. We booked a bungalow with a horizon view and recommend that as it looks towards the ocean / Tahiti, not back towards the resort or the other bungalows. It really is as beautiful as the pictures you see. Would definitely stay here again.

Ia orana! I do not know if it was even real, but everything was beyond perfect. We stayed in an overwater bungalow at the end of the pontoon.
