Ia Orana to all the Tuamotu Archipelago Lovers,
Maluha here, the Captain at the Helm of the “Ship” RAIMITI on Fakarava where you had the pleasure to stay.
I am reaching out to share some bit of bad news ,
During the night of May 10 at 2 Am, the weather offered a bad surprise to us.
Here’s what was on the menu that late night:
For starters: a mixed rains Salad with every possible angle of attack, vertical, horizontal from above and diagonal.
For the Main course: Wind gusts Brochettes served with a sauce: “Never felt winds like these here before” .
For Dessert: Thunderbolt of Lightning with a Boom Box Coulis.
This was a very long night for the guests and our team.
This was a first for us after all these years on our little piece of coral. The morning light offered the sad sight of the broken welcome Tahitian house, Summer lounge, Library etc.
It took a few gusts of over 110 miles per hour coming from the South West to do the worst.
I am now calling all the guests through the years who had first set eyes on this building before arriving and last set wet eyes as you were departing. Many hours spent there resting, reading and doing siestas on hot days . Like the phoenix this hamlet of peace needs to come back from the ashes or pile of rubbles.
In order to help us to achieve this goal, we have created a fundraiser. Any contributions however modest will help us to get closer to this goal and allow to get the work done correctly to rebuild better..

Mauru'uru roa to All
Maluha and the team Raimiti
