Monday Escapes

In honor of the warm Spring weather and the fact that I couldn't feel like I live farther away from the sea, I am bringing you to an exotic beach vacation spot...   

This archipelago is where one thinks of staying in an over the water bungalow, where you can dip into the crystal waters right from your own personal villa.  The smell of the hibiscus flower as the hotel concierge greets you with a floral lei, the deep shades of green from the cascading mountains, and the never ending view to the depths of the sea ground, will leave you on pleasure sensory overload.  This island may not conjure up the same mystique as it's more coveted neighbor but it is surely not to be missed if you ever find yourself in this region:

We have thought once we settle into the new house and when we are ready for a special trip...we may plan a trip to French Polynesia.
