So whether you are ready for the romance of exploration or the romance of love – hop aboard. We are sailing south. . .
Can’t you just smell the sweet scent of the blossoms that explode from trees and bushes alike?
Can you feel the sun’s rays warming your soul as well as your skin?
Decisions to be made. . .stretch out on the white sand beach or sun on the private deck of your thatched-roof bure, or bungalow, out over the water?
Or do the kayaks and paddle boats lure you into that turquoise water that laps gently against the shore?
Or you could spend a few hours just sittin’ on the dock in the bay. . .
That’s as far as we will go with suggestions in the PG-rated post. But let your imaginations soar. . .what would you do if you found yourself on a South Pacific island today?
Note: We took the photos used in this post during a lunch stop we made while driving around the island in our rental car during the one day we had here during on our South Pacific cruise last October.
This is the Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort and Spa. There are 54 bungalows built over the water – each has glass panels in the floor and steps that lead to the waist-deep lagoon. Another 49 bungalows are clustered together on the resort grounds.
Just in case we’ve tempted you with this post – the resort has no rooms available this Valentine’s weekend. However, I checked dates for this coming October (the month in which these photos were taken) and you can book one of those garden bungalows at their Best Available Rate of $548 a night or an over-water for $742. Oh yes, WI-FI is extra!
Rather pricey in our book, but then again, what price romance, right?
