Top Tahiti Over-Water Bungalows
The Tahitians were first to creatively envisage and build to-die-for-luxury on stilts set in the middle of a lagoon over 30 years ago, and have since perfected every nuance to open up a whole new serene experience in this totally glorious location.
Bora Bora Lagoon Resort and Spa
Bora Bora Lagoon Resort and Spa is one of the most beautiful destinations in the world and one of the most idyllic over-water bungalow experiences. The resort has 44 over-water bungalows including over-water end-of-pontoon bungalows, spaced discretely along three teak walkways, each bungalow designed to maximise the magnificent views.
Relax back on your private balcony gazing lazily over the stunning peaks of towering Motu Toopua, the remains of a long-silent volcano, while thousands of colourful fish swim lazily through the pristine waters, visible through glass-topped tables, or descend to the warm tropical waters via your own private steps.
Enjoy intimate room service, join in the fun poolside and tuck into a range of scrumptious lunch menus and snacks or experience beautifully prepared local seafood and a diverse range of dishes in the restaurant.
The bungalows are complete with comfortable air-conditioning, satellite and plasma TV and your own security safe. At night, you?ll sleep peacefully in king or twin beds while the lagoon moves gently beneath you.
Once your senses are rejuvenated, there is plenty to do and see around the island. Set your heart pumping on a Moana jet boat ride, cruise the balmy waters aboard a luxury catamaran, in the evening slow down and relax on a romantic sunset and cocktail cruise.
Hire a car to wander the meandering palm-fringed roads or rent a bike for a slower more intimate experience. Head inland on a 4WD adventure in a purpose built jeep climbing Otemanu Mountain, exploring the more remote corners of Bora Bora and discovering spectacular views.
Shop for beautiful local arts and crafts along the main village pier and dine in one of the restaurants, then wander along or swim from the pure white beaches. The deep oceans around Bora Bora beyond the protective reef are rich with marine life and ideal fishing grounds. Experience the thrill of your life pulling in one of the big game fish ? yellowfin, mahi mahi, and the prince of the seas, Marlin. Inexperienced as well as experienced anglers are catered for aboard professional charter boats.
InterContinental Bora Bora Resort and Thalasso Spa
Located on a coral island, Motu Piti Aau, the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort and Thalasso Spa offers glorious, rejuvenating deep ocean spa treatments. Seemingly floating over the aqua marine alive with brilliantly coloured schools of tropical fish, your fully appointed, private over-water bungalow is discretely positioned in one of the clusters positioned over the calm, clear aquamarine lagoon and pure white sandy ocean floor. Lie back in a soothing bubble bath in your sumptuous bathroom while you sip champagne and sooth your cares away.
The highlight of the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort and Thalasso Spa is the unique spa experience using deep-sea water and invigorating sauna to rejuvenate and replenish tired bodies, or why not stretch out in the Turkish Bath.
Enjoy the fun and exercise of kayaking, canoeing, scuba diving and snorkelling the warm Tahitian waters, or work out in the 24/7 health and fitness centre. Take to clear skies on a helicopter tour; descend into the underwater wonderland on a submarine tour, and feed sharks and rays. Discover a night sky ablaze with stars, watch local handcraft demonstrations, and purchase beautiful artworks, crafts, and curios at the local shops.
Dine on sumptuous gourmet cuisine and relax back in sophisticated style in the thatch-covered Le Reef Restaurant. For more casual island-style enjoy luncheon, cocktails, and scrumptious snacks at Le Sands or dine lagoon-side on the Terrace.
If you need to get a little business done during your restful getaway, a fully staffed business centre complete with high speed Internet access will soon see you back poolside. Professional day care, baby-sitting and children?s activities are other reasons why this is one of the top Tahiti over-water bungalows resorts.
