The Islands Of Tahiti Hosts CBS' THE AMAZING RACE
The Amazing Race crew stayed at Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa, a luxurious all-suite resort with 120 thatched-roofed bungalows situated on the hillside, along the beach and over the water.
Not only is The Nui on a rare motu with a hill, but the resort's location is also a memorable site in Tahitian lore. The mischievous Polynesian god Hiro is said to have thrown his spear from the top of the motu's black lava hill, giving Mt. Otemanu its jagged profile. And, The Nui's black lava hill rises above a sacred cove where ancient islanders gathered for stone fishing festivals. This island lore is celebrated in the original artwork displayed throughout the resort.
Tahiti is located halfway between California and Australia, on the same side of the International Date Line as North America and in the same time zone as Hawaii. To learn more about the Islands of Tahiti, visit www.tahititourisme.com
