If anyone is looking for the ideal paradise it would have to be the Tahitian Islands, Moorea specifically. I went to the Pearl Resort on Moorea in the beginning of May and it was absolutely beautiful. The clearest water, most exotic fish, friendly people, gorgeous sights and great culture. A lot of people have a stereotype of the French, and I have to say that going there I had my own in mind as well, but that went right out the window when I stepped foot off of the airplane. The people are friendly and simply amazing. Moorea is very lush and the island is very driver friendly so you can journey around and go from beach to beach or just lay on the warm sand of where you stay. The Perl Resort is rated in mid notch as far as how pricey things can get, though our stay there was exceptional. Staying in an over the water bungalow and having the staff at every need can not be beat. The resort has beautiful grounds and I was very impressed with it.
Bora Bora was pretty as well but I feel that there is a lot of hype there for a more run down island. I stayed on the cheaper end of the island (which the whole island looks the same) at Club Med. Club Med was amazing. All inclusive are a great way to go and I can't praise enough how great the staff was! It would be worth going back to Bora Bora to be at Club Med. The island itself just doesn't have a lot to offer and if I was not at Club Med I would have been bored because it rains a lot on Bora Bora. I do have to say that the world famous restaurant and bar, Bloody Mary's, was to die for! And I would go back to Bora Bora just to eat there. The fish is caught fresh that day and prepared to your liking. It was amazing! Club Med made my Bora Bora experience and the whole Island of Moorea made my whole Tahiti experience. It will be a place that I plan to visit again in the hopeful near future. A tropical paradise just doesn't get better then Tahiti, so when you are looking for the best, it could get a little pricy but worth every penny.
