Manihi Pearl beach Resort

What happened to the Manihi Pearl Beach Resort? I stayed there a few years ago and it was wonderful.

It closed :( We were very disappointed--loved that resort. I would assume that they did not get enough bookings to offset the costs of running the resort.

That was one of our favorites as well and we were so disappointed when they closed, especially since they had some of the best snorkeling. We felt liked we stepped into an aquarium off of our OWB. We had hoped someone would buy and refurbish the resort, but not yet. :(

Yes they closed down late in 2012. We stayed there in spring 2012, a few months before they shut down. By the time we visited, they had already closed down about 1/2 of the bungalows. Shame. What a place it was. And the people who worked there were so kind and helpful. Hopefully someone reopens it some day.

Wow, we were married here in '98. Had an amazing week on the atoll. Just logged on to book for our 20th. So sad.
