25th Anniversary Dream Trip

My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in French Polynesia, beginning of course in Papeete. After spending 5 very secluded days on Manihi, my wife and I arrived on comparatively more developed Bora Bora. The water taxi ride from the airport gave us the opportunity to see the numerous resorts which dot the island and we eventually landed at the Sofitel Motu Resort. Once settled in our over water bungalow we sat on our deck which overlooks the dormant volcano and enjoyed a cold adult beverage. The crystal clear waters were surprisingly devoid of fish but the view was beautiful none the less. This resort is incredibly beautiful and the staff extremely attentive. Most of the management were French while the maids and servers were locals. The food in the restaurant is expensive but decent quality. For dinner we went to Bloody Mary's twice. Bloody Mary's has a free shuttle which picks you up and returns you to Marara Beach for the return trip to the Motu in the water taxi. Bloody Mary's is a must do. The food is exceptional and the experience worth the price of admission. For snorkelers, the water around the bungalows doesn't have much to see. However, take one of the free kayaks around to the other side of the island and you will be as shocked as I was to see what is arguably the most pristine, beautiful reef complex that I have ever seen. I have been in the best dive destinations in the Caribbean and Pacific, but I have never seen anything like the reef on the south side of the motu. The Sofitel Motu is the perfect place from which to explore Bora Bora.

Honeymoon

Great resort. Very private and intimate. The service was outstanding. We had an OWB and were very pleased. The water was about 7 feet deep off our swimming platform with lots of fish. Only complaint would be that the restaurant/bar was closed for lunch and dinner due to the low occupancy. However, easy access to the sister resort by boat whenever we wanted.
