Tahiti is a French influenced country so the natives speak Tahitian and French.
The prices are inflated.
Meals and beverages are usually not included in Tahiti resorts’ nightly rates.
Most of the upscale Tahiti resorts are over-water bungalows which lack in privacy. Rather you’re on display out in the ocean with no foliage surrounding the Tahitian accommodations. Sound carries over water so every noise is magnified. If someone is walking down the plank or boardwalk, you can hear them loud and clear.
vs Fiji Vacations
Fiji is an independent country. Everyone speaks English.
The US dollar is strong. Shopping prices are very comparable to the rates in the US. You can find some good bargains.
Meals are usually included in the nightly rate.
Five-star resorts include soft drinks and most include alcohol.
Fiji does not allow over-water bungalows. Fiji is the soft coral capital of the world and is very protective of their reefs. Building over reefs is damaging to the coral that has taken hundreds of years to develop. Also Fiji does not encourage fish feeding.
On a Tahiti vacation you will not have the beautiful coral reefs which are excellent for snorkeling. Therefore, they do build out in the water. Tahiti vacations also do not have the tide change that Fiji has. Fiji’s tidal changes are quite drastic.
Fijian people are the friendliest people. They are curious about you and try to get to know you better. They want to share their culture with you.
