Awesome welcome by Karine & Olivier. Whilst not centrally located in town, it is in a great location overlooking the lagoon about 7 minutes drive from Uturoa. Free kayaks on offer to explore the nearby Island, bikes on offer & a hire car also on offer. The food is terrific & not to be missed. Rooms are comfortable, airconditioned & have balconies. A stay of at least 3 nights would be a must (we only stayed 2 nights and with flight delays 1 day). This was not enough. Great staff and very relaxing.

We had a lovely morning on the ship with breakfast al fresco and then went in to town to snoop around. There is not much to shop for on any of the islands and what stuff they do sell is very expensive. So since we were allowed to take our own wine on board we each bought another bottle. These islands are very small and mountainous so most of everything is right near the ...
... a restaurant with free Wi-Fi. I love the technological age. Lunch for three, a hamburger, a sandwich and a plate of ceviche along with one beer and two waters cost $70, yes, seventy. Wow. Well, everything has to come by boat so what can you expect. A brief walk to the many souvenir shops and the jewelry stores – they do sell beautiful black pearls – and we were done. Time to head back to the ship and our next stop – Rarotonga. It was a good ...
... was on a working holiday for six months. He made us an amazing Cosmo which we both sipped on as we browsed the restaurant menu trying to decide if we should still have dinner here for our anniversary.
After our pleasant interlude at the bar we strolled hand-in-hand down the cobblestone path bathed in moonlight as we headed back to our villa.
No bike rides tonight!
Hint - a snorkel in the resort lagoon is well worth the effort. ...
... cool contrast of colors from the dark blue deep ocean to the multi-light blue shades in the lagoon. Stumbled upon a coconut man who was harvesting coconuts from the trees. He offered us a fresh coconut and then proceeded shucking and cracking it for us. Fresh coconut water and meat. What a treat. Then we came across a lady who had a trap full of sea urchins so we went in for a closer look. We ask what she was doing with them and she told us Napoleon just ...
Our ship docked at Raiatea around 7am. This was the only port that our ship docked (vs anchored) in this entire cruise, aside from Papeete. So today we did not have to tender on shore - we just walked off the ship.
We had a leisurely breakfast and got on shore around 9. The Warrens and we had decided to go our own ways today - they wanted to spend the afternoon packing and we wanted to drive around the island ...
