How in the world do they ship frozen meals to Bora Bora? The fastest way to get there would be at least 24 hours by plane, how would that work?
Throw away cooler? Or a well insulated box.

My shipment to Hawaii was in transit for over 24 hours and arrived frozen solid. Was in an insulated box and full of ice packs.

Pomegranate ships anywhere.

They only ship domestically btw

I've had Hermoles ship to places that are even further out. If its an insulated box w dry ice it can last up to 72 hours

Is it supposed to arrive after you arrive or is it supposed to be shipped to the hotel before you arrive and the hotel would keep in the freezer?

I'd do it that it arrives a couple of days before because there are always delays

Hermoles is in London so thats really far from BOB. Better off trying POM

How much does POM charge for shipping?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Insanely a lot. I was going to buy once, and shipping was more than a weeks worth of food.

Bummer! Just got the Le Meridien OWB for 274 USD and 30K SPG points for 2 nights. Have you heard anything good about it?
How did you do that?
