I'm planning our honeymoon/one year anniversary/babymoon trip to Bora Bora next June...has anyone been there and can you give me any feedback or info?
We're planning to stay at the InterContinental Thalasso & Spa and also at the St. Regis.

We're planning to spend a few days in LA too before heading to Bora Bora. We're only staying in Bora Bora because I think its so beautiful that we might as well spend our whole time there. I couldn't decide on a resort so I decided to pick two. I knew I had to stay at the InterContinental Thalasso but we got a great deal for the St. Regis so we're staying there too. Four Seasons is also really nice. Please share pictures if you decide to stay there. When are you guys planning to go? We're going the end of next June.

Moorea is breathtaking... and is actually my favorite out of the two but the St Regis is amazing.. In a perfect world the St Regis in Moorea would be the best of the best! In Moorea the water is crystal clear with tons of fish, coral and underwater life and only about 5 feet deep of our your villa. In Moorea you can venture outside of the hotel and dine at some great restaurants. In Bora Bora the water is completly flat an aqua almost like a big gigantic pool but not crystal clear like Moorea and only a few fish, rays and sharks amd its about 10 feet deep off of your villa..We dove 4 times in both islands and loved it but Moorea hands down was the best! The St. Regis Bora Bora is on its own little island so you really dont need to leave the resort much.. The service is first class and the villas are breathtaking.. The food is great although we did go to dinner one night at the Le Meridian next door just to switch it up a bit and realized quick we should have never left our paradise...We did visit the Intercon in Moorea however the Hilton Moorea overwater villas were just renovated and much nicer and they also had a much larger beach. The Intercon was a nice hotel we had dinner there one evening however in my opinion its a little too touristy with the dolphins experience and everything? Not really a true French Polynesia property but beautiful! I actually am in the hotel business so unfortunatly I am a little more judgemental than most sorry... I am happy to answer any questions and super jealous of your upcoming stay!

Thanks so much for the pics! i can't wait to go...i'm just dreaming of it right now! lol. I'm soo jealous you're going to seychelles and mauritius!! I was looking into Maldives before Bora Bora but its just so damn far! And probably super expensive too but Bora Bora is not that much cheaper...lol. I couldn't convince my husband to fly that far to the Maldives...but its ok cuz i love Bora Bora too. As long as i get to go to one of these beautiful islands i'm happy!
i wish i had taken a quick to trip to Mauritius while i was in South Africa. I don't think we'll get to travel much after next year cuz we plan to start a family. We're also going to Hawaii next November so he says I'm pushing it with the travels. i just love to travel!!
Share pics from your trip! When are you going?
