As our 6 days/ 5 nights comes to a close, we have to say Moorea stole our hearts. From the warm, friendly welcoming Tahitian people to the crystal clear water surrounding the island teaming with an abundance of amazing marine life– it is truly paradise here.
I have attached a rough budget of out costs once we got here as we did prepay for flights and this was a stopover as well as 3 x nights accommodation beforehand.
Accommodation: $45NZD per night, we extended and stayed 2 extra nights.
Internet : $15NZD for the week – Our Air B n B host charged for WIFI as it is very scarce on the island.
Ferry to and from Moorea : Aremeti ferry - $45NZD return per person. Takes 30 minutes and runs throughout the day. You can buy tickets at the terminal unless taking a car then it’s recommended to book online.
Lagoonarium : $60NZD pp – we walked there and hitch-hiked back.
Food costs for 6 days / 5 nights : Around $300NZD and we ate out twice for dinner. Once in the Sofitel so we could watch the Tahitian show and once in Vai’are pizzeria for the open mic night. For a pizza, side salad and 3 local beers expect to pay around $65-70NZD.
Hire of the Scooter : $100NZD - $90NZD + $10NZD on gas.
That’s pretty much it. It cost us $715NZD for 6days/5nights in Moorea for 2 people. If you were to come here on your honeymoon or just for a holiday then it can cost a lot more, depending on the accommodation you stay, food you eat and activities that you want to do. With that said, we also could have saved probably $100NZD on food if we hadn’t eaten out twice, but we are on holiday so that’s what our savings are for.
Some of the main things we loved in Moorea:
Things we didn’t like and to watch out for when you arrive:
We absolutely loved our stay here, we didn’t come here for a 5* holiday or excellent service, we came to explore paradise and for that, we 100% accomplished what we came here for. Feel free to message either of us for more info if you are planning a trip here as we would be more than happy to help!
