Please help me decide!

Ok, I'm planning on going to tahaa at the pearl beach for the last three days of our eight night trip. Can you tell me what would be a better island to pair this with? Either Moorea or bora bora? I'm so confused!

Bora Bora is a bit closer, and has more luxury accomodations. The lagoon, motus, and central island are spectacularly beautiful, and more unlike Tahaa than Moorea. On the downside, because there is so little flat land, all development is concentrated on the narrow coastal perimeter, making the island feel over-developed and crowded in many places.

Moorea has a lot more activities going on than Tahaa, and a bit more than Moorea. There are many more mid-priced (for French Polynesia!) accomodations and restaurants. I generally prefer Moorea to Bora Bora, except for that fantastic view across the lagoon.

got back from my honeymoon in bora bora and moorea about 2 months ago. Although both were fantastic, there is no place on earth like bora bora. The colors of the water alone were worth the trip. we stayed at the bora bora nui and couldnt have asked for a nicer place. service was amazing! not cheap, but worth it if you can swing it.

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Bora Bora for two weeks and absolutely loved it. We usually stay at 4 or 5 star (Mobil rating) hotels for business and holidays, so we have a good idea of what belongs in that range. This hotel deserves that rating. The beach, water and views in Bora Bora are spectacular.

We met people in Bora Bora who had just left Moorea. They had generally positive comments.

I think you will be happy with whichever you choose.

ls, Please tell me more about The Nui Resort. We're planning on staying in an overwater bungalow. Are there any DVD players in the room? Where you on a meal plan? We are considering breakfast and dinner. Any additional insites you could provide would be helpful.

Thanks
