My husband I and spent the most terrific honeymoon at the Club Med, Moorea in 1988. Lately we've been talking about revisiting the that tropical paradise. While researching on the web, I discovered it is not only closed, but in complete disarray. I even found a terribly depressing photo of one of the main building, on fire.
What's the scoop? How on earth did such an incredible resort go from utopia to trashed?
I think back to planning our honeymoon in '88. Going to Tahiti was unheard of in my area (small city - eastern us.) The trip was super expensive for our budget which was filled with school loans, car loans, and a pricey wedding. My mom suggested we follow our dreams and go on our Tahitian honeymoon. She said we'd never regret going, but we could regret not going. Well she was right! I sooooooooooo don't regret going!!!
