Otaheite was due to re-open before the end of September I believe. We ate in the temporary marquee which was set up - the food and servie was out of this world! Don't know how they do it - oh and my never empty champagne glass - I am soooo jealous of you!
We were tghere 12 - 20 Sep and they were putting in a new tile floor. When we left on the 20th, it looked like they were ready to reopen...they were just doing some final cleaning. Of course, they may have started other work we were not aware of. Dinner under the tent was very nice except I would really have preferred a climate controlled atmosphere. Food and service excellent.
