Hello again,

Ok....after researching and showing all the info. and pictures to my future hubby, we seem to be leaning more towards the Pearl in Bora Bora.

At first, I thought the Nui was our top choice, but the view from the Pearl is exatcly what I always dreamed it would be in BB.

Are we making a bad decision? I know the Nui is newer, but not crazy about the deep water and no direct view of Mt. Otemanu. We are more interested in the outside views (lagoon/Mt's) than we are of the inside. A nice, clean place is all we really need there.

Is it true the water is about 4-5 feet deep at the Pearl (POWB)? If so, that is perfect for snorkeling and just lounging!

I would really like to make a final decision so we can get pricing and just book it!

THANKS AGAIN for all your help!

Hi again Lisa

The Pearl is a very good choice for what you are looking for.

Snorkeling and lounging is just great there, and so are the views.

The Nui does have a great beach and is also quite a nice resort.Wonderful staff at both resorts.

Hi Bo,

Thanks for responding AGAIN! lol

It was such a hard toss up between the Pearl and Nui. I just can't deny that I've always dreamed of that beautiful water and view of Mt. Otemanu...so it just put the Pearl ahead because of that. I do realize there will be a difference in the interior, but I don't think we will be going all that way to care to much about the polished floors! lol

I'm going to email the 3 travel agents I've been in touch with and get our quote. Wish me luck! I'll post again soon!
