“once in a lifetime”
Reviewed 17 May 2018 for a stay in February 2018
person found this review helpful

We stayed 3 nights Sofetel in an on beach bungalow in Moorea. Then 4 nights in overwater bungalow LeMeridian on Bora Bora. Both were wonderful but the on beach bungalow was slightly nicer. On Bora Bora we swam with the sharks. I am getting older and i would recommend a life preserver if the sea is rough. I made it but i struggled.

“This is the spot”

First off, Richard and Nir are the coolest folks I have coordinated with in my travels. Their operation is both laid back and precise.
As far as I can tell, you can't get those sunsets at any other bungalows on the island because they are on the wrong side of the mountain. Also, you are not sandwiched with others and trapped in a resort that you must pay a shuttle to go to the mainland. You also have a wide variety of food because of the grill as opposed to what the resorts are serving. You have freedom. You will need the car from Nir, it's worth it.
There is a giant piece of corral off the deck, home to tons of tropical fish. I left a snorkel mask there for the cause. Enjoy.
So at the cost of no spa and massages, you have freedom and peace. I can't tell you how much we enjoyed our stay...fantastic. We will be back.
Ps.... firm mattress.

“Had all the potential for a great stay unfortunately it rained for most of the time we were there.”

The house was as described and we enjoyed our stay at the house. It would of been much better if it hgadn't rained for most of the time we were there. Definitely rent the car from Nir and go exploring. Restaurants- Bloody's Marys, Bora Bora Yacht Club & Blue Coco Bora. Chin Lee's is the spot for groceries and definitely get some fresh Baguettes.

“Two weeks self catering in Paradise.”

My mother wished to celebrate her 80th birthday here, having been to B B several times before, sometimes in this same bungalow. Since her last visit it had been massively renovated with all mod cons: air conditioned (if you want) rooms, ceiling fan in lounge plus extra table top fan, tastefully decorated, lots of towels, washing machine, grill cooker on the terrace, microwave & mini oven, coffee maker, fridge, boiling hot water instantly, good shower, safe, outdoor shower and hose for when you come back from swimming, easy access to sea via stepladder, car park nearby, small gate to stop dogs wandering in. Car rental via Nir the property manager, good value, no air con but open windows is enough, check water tank though as screen gets dusty quickly. Public transport a problem. Nir met us at the dock, supplied us with keys, local phone which is very handy for bookings, wi fi info etc. Bungalow easy to find, 15 mins drive away form Vaitape with its 2 supermarkets. Food is expensive but fresh - had to laugh at "No eggs in July". Some restaurants are part of larger hotels or modest local eateries. Snorkeling in immediate area modest (severe hurricane decades ago and general pollution have taken their toll) - best organise proper snorkeling trips s for much better experience & bring good underwater camera, unbelievable! Expensive but really worth it - ask Nir.
My only niggle - no tv, would have been nice to see local recaps of Heiva celebrations. Only 3 dvds there, one of which was of course Mutiny / Bounty. But, plenty of reading material. Also, not enough plates, mismatched cutlery etc. For us 3 girls no problem but larger groups may have to ask for this to be sorted.
However, these are minor details in an otherwise glorious stay. Thank you Nir for being so helpful and making my mother's time an unforgettable experience.

“Amazing place to stay (Mutiny on the Bounty).”
Reviewed 29 January 2016 for a stay in June 2015

Hello Folks,

When booking this bungalow don't be fooled that your going to get what you bargained for. you will get more more more... as the old song goes but how do you like it? If you answer yes to peace, beauty and tranquility then you have reached your final destination. Brando in name and history... yes, the famous star owned these until his death whereby he remained in-twinned with his co star whilst making mutiny on the bounty.

We did not realize this until we came across signed pictures from the stars themselves. Apparently, we were advised that Liz Taylor and Elton had been guests in our very bungalow and Jack Nicholson at some point owned one of the 5 bungalows. Magic.

Apart from this you are situated in a prime and safe area with stunning water that has an array of fish to keep you occupied for hours. The Bungalow was spacious and very well maintained. The caretaker was very nice and even rented his car for the week, which was required should you need to do some shopping.

The island is stunning but in comparison to Moorea we thought it wasn't as panoramic. We had dreamed of going to Bora Bora forever and although we were stunned by its beauty we were equally stunned by how many people lived on the island... in the National Geographic it looks isolated and a place of mystery. I have to say the overwhelming mount of water bungalows spoiled the islands beauty as they piled up like a crash on the M6.

Food was very expensive for example a small tub of lemon sorbet setting you back at 15 euros... take your packed lunch kids. Locals were hit and miss and as they are described as the smiling nation we felt that there was not much smiling going on... maybe my glitter beret startled them perhaps.

Bora Bora is a dream destination but with its rise in glittarti stars visiting they have populated the best beaches where you are not allowed to visit unless you have 32k per person to spend on a weeks holiday... ouch... yet if you are adventurous you will find some remaining beaches that are stunning. The best beach we found was Pineapple Beach on Moorea itself and this was isolated with stunning white soft sands and water like a bath.

The holiday was AMAZING and locations we stayed at were simply brilliant. Cost wise you will need to spend some money to visit this destination... however, we co-joined this along with a few nights in LA so all in all the adventure of a life time.

You will never get the same feel if you stay in a hotel... getting up and dropping into the ocean of dreams is what this holiday entails...

so become a mutineer and reclaim your bounty.

Bon voyage!!!
