Tahiti Travel Tips - Tahitian Black Pearls

August 11, 2014 · Print This Article

I have a couple leaving shortly for their romantic 30th anniversary to Bora Bora, staying in an overwater bungalow at the world famous Intercontinental Bora Bora Resort and Thalasso Spa.
If you too are thinking of visiting the islands, here are a few answers to some questions for you:

Here are answers to your questions:

1.  What is the voltage I.E. do we need a converter for camera in ou room?

Answer: Concierge desk provides the converters for you.

2.  How much alcohol can we bring into the country?

Answer: 4 liters alcoholic beverages (whisky, cognac, rhum, Vodka etc) AND

4 liters wine or champagne or vermouth

BUT…beware they have also changed the amount charged for over weight limits on the inter-island flights. So make sure that liquor doesn’t put you over weight…or…the savings in alcohol will be eaten up by over weight charges.

Pack light!!! Bring the booze…leave the clothes at home! :-)

3. Suggestion for reasonable black pearl shopping?

The Farm
Has top quality Tahiti pearls. Some of the jewelry is made in-house. It’s located just north of the Hotel Bora Bora. tel. 700 675

Matira Pearls
Has black pearls and island fashions. Located between the Intercontinental Le Moana Resort and Hotel Le Maitai Polynesia. tel.677 914

By the way, our Concierge Service is able to answer just about any request.  I have another couple flying to the Four Seasons Bora Bora Resort and they want 20 Monte Cristo Cuban Cigars to be waiting of them upon arrival - we were able to deliver!
