The villas are constructed in the pure Polynesian style made from bamboo and wood with a thatched roof. While in Bora Bora we’d enjoyed an incredibly luxurious experience, Le Taha’a was gorgeous but felt more authentic.
Again we had our terrace…
…and for watching sunsets.
Once again I have to say, unfortunately food was a disappointment at this hotel but they did serve a great poisson cru presented in a coconut:
I had high hopes for Le Ohriri, the hotel’s fine dining restaurant but even that let us down. I’ve not included the food pics as, to be honest, they didn’t look great! Plus poor lighting didn’t help either.
However, we did have one meal that totally knocked our socks off! Though it wasn’t because of the food…
The hotel arranged for us to enjoy a motu dinner on our own private islet! We arrived at reception to meet our guide:
We toasted with Taittenger, which is a champagne that is very special to us as it is what we were drinking when Mr Silver proposed in Australia.
As we ate our five-course dinner a Polynesian band entertained us with their relaxing twinkly guitars and traditional music.
They even got us in on the act! We love the whole motu dinner experience and I can safely say it was probably my favourite evening of the honeymoon! Everything felt so special and we were completely looked after by our waiter and the entertainment crew!
It was fabulous to escape to the remote island of Bora Bora and Le Taha’a. It’s certainly very relaxing and you couldn’t be more isolated and away from it all. Mr Silver absolutely loved it and felt he could have been marooned on the island for weeks on end! I, however, started to feel a little stir crazy and began to crave not only the glamour of the city but the variety of activities that you can do in New York and LA. Though, I totally fell in love with the beauty of French Polynesia, I don’t think I could have stayed there longer than the eight days that we did. But it was back on to the glamorous lights of LA…
