People were riding the sharks by their fins!

After enjoying our beautiful (snow-covered) wedding two days prior in Pennsylvania, my husband and I flew off to Le Meridien in Bora Bora for our honeymoon. First images from the Papete, Tahiti flight of Bora Bora-breathtaking! We couldn’t wait to jump into that Crystal blue water from our private hut. You can see the resort huts from the plane!


Ella, you simply did an amazing job planning our trip. We had a “preferred guest” hut  in deeper water (as we had requested through your agency) with 2 cleaning services a day. The hut was beautiful and spotless. No problems sleeping there for 7 nights. It felt like our home, especially because we stocked it with snacks and alcohol that we purchased in LAX’s Duty Free. The complimentary breakfast buffet had multiple stations, including crepes, omelets, fresh fruit etc. My favorite was the homemade preserves station. Mmm pineapple jam! We skipped lunch everyday because breakfast was so big. Dinner at the resort was good but some hotel guests ventured out to other resort restaurants or to Bloody Mary’s in Bora Bora. However, we didn’t think the one meal we had there was worth the hype. We, honestly, were too exhausted from the sun and beach so early in the evening that we simply ate at the resort. I have no complaints about the food or service there. It was actually nice having dinner and a bottle of wine nightly under the stars by the restaurant’s lagoon.


We definitely think Bora Bora is for honeymooners. There isn’t much adventure there; it’s meant to be relaxing and peaceful. Music is hardly heard at the resort and there’s barely a nightlife. The resort bar closed nightly at 10PM. We actually were in bed most nights by 9PM and saw the sunrise every morning at 5:30AM. Many guests said their days consisted of similar routines. We couldn’t get enough of the sunsets with Mt. Otemanu as the backdrop. Gorgeous!


There were hardly any hiccups while we were there. The one hiccup we encountered, confusion with our safari excursion pickup location, was immediately resolved by the courteous resort staff. The safari excursion was a nice break, because we were sun-scorched by day 3. We enjoyed the excursion, finding it was informative. We learned about the island, which was nice. It made us appreciate the location more. The excursion ended within 3 hours, so we had time until our ferry pick-up. We rented a road buggy (near the ferry dock) and we drove really fast, touring the island with the wind in our hair. My husband loved that.


Everyone at our resort kept raving about the hotel’s snorkeling and shark-feeding excursion, which comes in half-day or full-day (with homemade, authentic lunch served at a native’s home). We were able to book a half-day tour on our last day and it was soooo much fun! It’s through Le Meridien. On the boat, the crew plays fun music and they stop to snorkel at the Coral gardens, then swim with the sting rays (and they’re everywhere) and then shark-feeding and swimming. People were riding the sharks by their fins! These sharks were everywhere. Really cool! This excursion was the highlight of our trip. You should suggest this. Your clients will love it!


We thank you so much for planning our honeymoon. We kept telling everyone about your great service and how friendly you are. Hopefully, we sent some clients your way. Thank you again! You’ll probably hear from us in the future when we plan another luxury trip.
