Approximately 14,000 KM of travel later, we settled in and began enjoying our experience.
The Bora Bora Nui hotel was beyond our expectations. Each guest has a hut on the water and no detail was spared. There was the usual stuff you would expect at a high end resort but also snorkel kits, blown up floating lounge chairs for the ocean and a deck to die for.
It truly was the most unique of experiences, simply walk out on your deck and dive into the ocean, sit out on your chair and enjoy the sound of the waves breaking on the reef in the distance or drop some bread into the water and watch the fish (you can also watch the fish through the glass squares in the room floor). A few pics of the fish below our hut:
These fish followed me around whenever I snorkelled.
A friend bought an underwater rig for his camera and took these pictures while snorkelling a few minutes down the way (mental note – must buy … taking pictures from above just does not work!)
Last, we awoke each morning to this, the Bora Bora sunrise. It was breathtaking.
