We stayed at the historic Omni Mount Washington Resort (also known as the Mount Washington Hotel) during the winter. The property is full of character, and we enjoyed our stay there. The skiing was just a short drive away, the views were great, and the staff was very courteous.
Here’s our video tour of the Sofitel Ia Ora Resort in Moorea. It’s as a great place to spend a week with a lot to do. We definitely recommend getting a overwater bungalow because the views and snorkeling are phenomenal. It’s one of the reasons to go to French Polynesia in the first place! There an infinity pool, a bar, a restaurant with daily entertainment, a nice beach, and phenomenal snorkeling for a resort. The views are also spectacular during the day and at night.
Here’s our tour of the amazingly spectacular Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort. It is quite simply one of the best places to stay on the planet. After landing at the airport, the experience starts with a boat ride to get to the hotel’s private atol, and continues with the amazing room, activities and service. We went to the One Million Dollar View lookout atop the complex and did lots and lots of snorkeling throughout the whole resort where we saw octopii, eels, and eagle rays in addition to a huge variety of fish and coral.
There is a lot to do at the Intercontinental Tahiti resort itself. There are a few restaurants, amazing views of Moorea, snorkeling in a lagoon open to the ocean, huge swimming pool, and more. We had a newly renovated Superior Garden View Room and it was pretty nice. Aside from the nice view, my favorite part of the room was the pillow menu. That was a new one for me and I definitely made use of it.
