Help with Honeymoon in Tahiti / Bora Bora / Moorea!?
My fiance and I are getting married on 10/11/09. Our honeymoon will be in Tahiti / Bora Bora / Moorea. I want this to be the most memorable vacation ever for us. We plan to travel about 4 days after our wedding. If anyone has been to any of those islands could you please let me know the best hotels with great views, and any other information that will be helpful such as; weather, local spots; hidden escapes that only locals know of and anything that would make it the best vacation ever!
I would greatly appreciate any good suggestions.
If you are a local, please let me know!!
Thank you so much and I look forward to hearing from everyone

We went there on our HM last year and it was amazing. We went to those 3 islands. On all the islands we stayed at InterContinental Hotels. On Bora Bora we stayed at the IC La Moana because we didn’t want to be too far away from the island (the Thalasso resort is on a private motu). The views from all the hotels were great. The IC in Moorea is a bit far from most of the action, but we didn’t care too much.
We only stayed in Tahiti for a few hours so we didn’t get to explore too much.
On both Moorea and Bora Bora we did 4×4 island tours. They were a ton of fun! The tour in Moorea took us to a bunch of different places – we went hiking through the forest (30 min hike), we saw a pineapple plantation, we went to a juice factory, and we got some amazing pictures from the top of the peak between Cook’s Bay and Oponohu Bay. The Bora Bora tour was also great – we got to see the cannons left over from WW2, we toured a black pearl farm, and we got a great tour of the forest. Our tour guide was a blast.
I highly recommend you do a snorkeling tour in Bora Bora. I was scared out of my mind before I did it but I’m so glad I did. Take an underwater camera with you – the sharks, rays and fish get so close to you!
On Moorea you should check out La Plantation, a really great restaurant. It was our favorite meal on that island. We also went to the Tiki Village Theater to see a dance show – that was fun.
Go to Bloody Mary’s on Bora Bora. It’s touristy but it’s cute inside – the floor is all sand! Plus, I had the most amazing mahi mahi sandwich there. Another great restaurant was Le Reef at the IC Thalasso. A bit expensive but worth every penny.
We went in the beginning of August and the weather was great – about 85 degrees every day, and it only rained once.
Don’t forget to buy a black pearl! We got mine at Tahia Collins on Moorea. The people there were really nice and helpful. I just regret not getting matching earrings.
Whatever you do, have fun! Don’t forget to bring lots of batteries and memory cards – we took over 3,000 pictures in 9 days.
