Great plan for travel to Tahiti …

Greet­ings fel­low Tahiti trav­el­ers and those who wish to. Tahiti Travel

It is no mys­tery that I travel between Cal­i­for­nia and Tahiti fairly fre­quently; I’m often asked how I go about it. Today I thought I would share a few of my secrets with you.

It is well-known that trav­el­ing to Tahiti is not inex­pen­sive. My idea of a good time is not prov­ing to the world how much money I can spend; I want to travel more often and stay longer, that is the goal.

My book­ing agent is the com­pany “Tahiti Dis­count Travel” and the pro­pri­etor is Ms.Geri Miller. She has been doing this for many years and knows all the ins and outs of travel in Tahiti. Most of the time I will stay on the island of Moorea; I stay at the hotel “Club Bali Hai”. The Club Bali Hai is located on Cook’s Bay in the cen­ter of the action on the island of Moorea. This is where the shop­ping, mar­kets and restau­rants are located. Should you desire finer accom­mo­da­tions, the Moorea Pearl is just a few miles away. The Pearl is also located in the shop­ping and restau­rant dis­trict of the island. The Bali Hai has a small restau­rant for break­fast and lunch but most of the rooms have cook­ing facil­i­ties and a small refrig­er­a­tor. Most often I stock up at one of the local mar­kets and make a lot of my meals in the room.

I rec­om­mend the red­eye out of Los Ange­les. This flight leaves at about 11:00PM. You will land in Papeete at dawn. I then use the air ser­vice, as opposed to the less expen­sive ferry, because I will be in the hotel lobby about 7:30 in the morn­ing. By doing this I can usu­ally catch the eight o’clock scuba dive. When I depart I will again use the 11 PM flight leav­ing Papeete, with this flight I do not need to leave the hotel till about 6 PM. Using these flights I gain two full days on the ground.

Give Geri a call, you will find her more than helpful;

Enchanted Isle Direct … to a doorway near YOU ! ! !

Greet­ings everybody;

I know that it is been a while but now we have some extra great news to relate!

For the last year folks from around the coun­try have been call­ing and ask­ing if we could ship direct. I’ve always had my reser­va­tions as many who sell prod­ucts online are behav­ing ille­gally. But we have found a com­pany that is safe and secure as well is very pro­fes­sional. As a result of this I’m happy to announce that we can now send Enchanted Isle direct to your door.

We at Motu are work­ing with our friends at Dean & DeLuca in St. Helena Cal­i­for­nia to expe­dite your orders. To place an order all you need do is call Dean & DeLuca at 707–967-9980 x 4106 and ask for Lee Rein­si­mar (you may also reach Lee via e-mail:

For those of you out there who have recently dis­cov­ered Tahiti, wel­come, for those long time trav­el­ers out there always feel free to send us your Tahiti sto­ries and expe­ri­ences. We love to hear from our friends around the country.

All the best to every­one, Maruru


What Enchanted Isle is and is not …

Matthew of Motu, your Tahiti-ologist

Matthew of Motu .… .     your lead­ing (we pre­fer “fear­lessly lead­ing”) Tahiti-ologist

Greet­ings from the offices of Motu and Matthew — your lead­ing “Tahiti-ologist”:

I am asked this ques­tion fre­quently, so now it is time to put it down in writing.

What Enchanted Isle is and is not:

Enchanted Isle is not a rum punch. For some­thing to be a rum punch it would have to include Rum, Enchanted Isle has no Rum in it; we use cane spirit.

What is cane spirit you may ask? The best way to answer this is to explain how rum is made.  Rum begins by fer­ment­ing a sim­ple car­bo­hy­drate, sugar or molasses. The fer­mented prod­uct is then passed through a dis­tiller or a fil­ter ele­ment.  With one pass you will have a prod­uct that is 80 proof. The fla­vor of rum is the result of the impu­ri­ties that are left in it after a sin­gle dis­til­la­tion pass.

To man­u­fac­ture cane spirit a fer­mented sugar must be passed through dis­til­la­tion a min­i­mum of four times and usu­ally five. This will elim­i­nate all of the fla­vors that we asso­ciate with Rum. Our gov­ern­ment def­i­n­i­tion of this process is that when a fer­mented sugar prod­uct is fer­mented repeat­edly and is above 190 proof the term for it is cane spirit. Cane spirit imparts none of the fla­vors of rum as the impu­ri­ties have been fil­tered out due to mul­ti­ple distillations.

Enchanted Isle uses cane spirit in a form known as” eau de vie”. Eau de vie indi­cates a stan­dard and a process. To man­u­fac­ture eau de vie one must start with the finest ingre­di­ents pos­si­ble and use a true dis­til­la­tion process. In our case we use 26 foot tall cop­per alem­bic tow­ers. The stan­dard for eau de vie is sim­i­lar to the Ger­manic stan­dards for the brew­ing of beer or the Russ­ian stan­dard for the man­u­fac­ture of vodka.

This approach is very costly, how­ever; for you our cus­tomers Enchanted Isle does not impart the fla­vor of rum and there­fore becomes a great base for cock­tails, mimosas, belli­nis; or really, any­thing that your heart desires. If you have any ques­tions or com­ments please leave them with us and I will do my best to get back to you.

Greet­ings from Cal­i­for­nia and Tahiti!

At long last, the State of Col­orado has com­pleted its shores and we’re cleared to land. So now it is only a mat­ter of when we can get the truck out from Col­orado to pick up Enchanted Isle.

As this unfolds we intend to pub­lish restau­rants, bars and retail out­lets that have the prod­uct. For those of you fur­ther to the east, we should have some good news for you before too long.


Road Trip …

Hello Every­body:

Just for fun I thought I would share this with everybody.

Last night I received a phone call from a gen­tle­man who had heard about us on the Inter­net. He placed a phone call to Dean & DeLuca and was told that indeed they have Enchanted Isle, which is Tahiti Drink’s name in the US. He drove up from cen­tral Cal­i­for­nia to buy it. Then he went to the web­site found my phone num­ber and gave me a call. He went on and on about how ecsta­tic he was that finally, after all this time, Tahiti Drink was here. He thanked me pro­fusely and in return I thanked him for his support.

You can now find Enchanted Isle (Tahiti Drink) on the shelves at the Bot­tle Barn in Santa Rosa and Dean & DeLuca in St. Helena, both in California.

For those of you in Cal­i­for­nia (or if you have friends in Cal­i­for­nia who might “for­ward” a ship­ment to you) Dean & DeLuca will ship to any loca­tion in the state. Just call Lee at Dean & Deluca at 707–967-9980 ext 4106 and ask about “Enchanted Isle”. He’ll get the wheels in motion for you.

Details for both mer­chants can be found on our “Where to Buy” page (see:  As we ship to addi­tional mer­chants we’ll add their names to this page as well. We’ll also send out Twit­ter mes­sages and post to our Face­book page as well.

And last but not least, for those of you who have been call­ing and e-mailing about the Vanilla Creme liqueur, which is called “Vahine Creme”, we have good news for you. The paper­work required for fed­eral approval to allow import in the USA has been sub­mit­ted. Many of you have e-mailed and said that you have been try­ing to find this prod­uct in the USA for years, your wait will soon be over. More infor­ma­tion com­ing soon.
