that's just an excellent planning. You'll have the best days of the Aranui, you will see Rangiroa, the nicest lagoon, and beach ever...that is just the perfect combination.
lucky lucky.

I thought that the Bali Hai Hotel was torn down and it is gone? Anyone knows? Then one I stayed at in the 90's is gone for sure is there another one?

The bali Hai still exist, but not as the original one.
I think they rebuilt it on their previous location. I've seen it 2 years ago.

The Bali Hai is gone and now is the Pearl Resort On Moorea
They still have a club Bali Hai in Cooks bay. You can go around sun down and one of the original Bali Hai Boys still is there and will tell great stories. Everymans wish. Also for the person going to Huahine. You will love it. The guy running the pension your staying at is Etienne and his brother Daniel. Very cool laid back guys. Its very low key place nothing high end but fun

Brittanie here, Kilikopela's vahine, and I just thought since my husband has done such a great job plugging my website here lately I'd let you know that I've posted pics of our recent trip. See our souvenirs here.

It was wonderful, and so much happened in three weeks that it's impossible to sum up in a few sentences, but I'll say this the absolute best service we got was while staying at the Pension Fare Maeva. After seven days there, we felt like we were staying with friends instead of strangers. The aboslute worst service we got was at the $600-a-night over-water bungalow. We even got sick after eating the buffet there. It's nice for the ammenities but sometimes you don't get what you pay for.

The Aranui was really great it's not in my nature to do "cattle herd" style tours with 200 other people, but there is simply no other way to see so much of the Marquesas for that little money in that short of time. The great thing about the Aranui is that their tour guides are pretty knowledgeable, and many of them are locals.

You can also read about our adventures in these posts.

Maruru,
Brit

Did you get a chance to meet Etienne or Daniel in Huahine?

Is the Island of Tahiti that bad or are the others just that much more natural and serene?

Tahiti is actually very cool. The town of Papeete is very French but with Tahitian feel. A little dirty but it cool. Good food. If you travel out past the town the scenary is really great. The reason most people only stay for a night is because the other island really give you the island feel. Its all pretty cool.
