Interview notes

Trong > Tahiti from us closer

When I travel to Tahiti and found that when preparing the Tahiti information was so scarce, in addition to the words of praise and attractions, local transportation, accommodations, lines, play mode.

Likely to Tahiti for Chinese tourists, as Maugham said a seat may not exist in the temple. Since opening in September 2008, only a few hundred people came here, in addition to the 18 hours of flight time and expensive prices, many people are simply identifies it and other islands. Fact, Tahiti's much more than the Sun, swimming, sailing, different styles of many islands, plus the unique artistic temperament, is definitely touches the soul's journey.

Along with the related travel line of development is becoming more and more mature, and Tahiti's distance is reduced.

Like my trip, travelling from France, Tahiti, Tahiti tourism company organizes Charter flights to and from Shanghai non-stop flight from Tahiti Papeete, the capital of the whole 13 hours. But recently I from Tahiti Tourism Bureau received, Tahiti and aviation possible future will open Beijing through the Tokyo to Papeete flight, this time the price will be less.

To Tahiti tourism is very expensive, the price is more than 10 times in Beijing, but stay down, I think there is not a rich man's exclusive, as long as careful planning, a week of play time (including the flight time), the per capita cost control in 3 million without problems, such as advance relatively inexpensive but high quality of the hotel, go to develop mature Island, design better travel line, etc.

Apart from this, show the beauty of the island, I also focus a hotel recommended, because the holiday is perfect, the hotel is absolutely essential, it is recommended that the quality of the hotel are all I personally experienced, comments are objective and fair, and I hope to everyone to develop Tahiti travel plans have certain reference.

I have a preference for the decoration of Savoy, each left me thinking, deeply with the old chair, creak squeaking floor and so on.

After a magnificent 4 billion investment, three years ' time it changes a lot. I will upgrade to suite River private suites, equipped with a private Butler. But on the whole river restaurant lack features and highlights, and the hotel as a whole and does not match the feeling, the menu is also new. Here it was very impressive, if you can afford, this will be an unforgettable experience!

To play the online comments: rigid corridor

The hotel has received good reviews, but after my experience make me disappointed! first of all, the design of the corridor of the hotel was very weird, feel like in a Home Office, rather than a luxury 5-star hotel, comfortable and warm feeling, more of a sense of distance. Secondly, our suite in only two towels, completely unable to meet our needs, let us surprise the bathroom had no air conditioning equipment, this let us feel very inconvenient, pay 6000 francs and one night price, not value for money!

Hardware facilities: restaurant, business center, fitness center, SPA physiotherapy, massage, hairdressing and beauty salon, florist, wine shop, etc.
