We're planning to stay at the InterContinental Thalasso & Spa and also at the St. Regis.

 

Thank you!

We're planning Bora Bora as well. We are spending a few days in California before we head to Bora Bora since we would have to connect in LAX anyways. We haven't decided on Four Seasons or St Regis yet. Are you going to any other islands or staying only on Bora Bora?

Hi Kamilla,

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.

how exciting you will love it... We went in March for our honeymoon and stayed 10 nights at the Hilton Moorea and 10 Nights at the St Regis Bora Bora.. They are both so different.. We stayed in a premium over water bungalow at both hotels and am dreaming about the day we will return.I have alot of pictures of the hotel room etc... if you want to send me your email address I would be happy to share them with you....and give you a good idea of what rooms you should request? Any reason why you are thinking of the Intercon in Moorea?

 

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 info! I will private msg you my email so you can show me some pics. :) You are sooo lucky to be able to afford 10 nights in Moorea and 10 nights in Bora Bora!!! We're only staying in Bora Bora cuz we're only going for a week. I'm only going there because i love tropical places and Bora Bora is so exotic and i love the scenery and different shades of blue... We're staying at the Intercontinental Thalasso and the St. Regis in Bora Bora and have halfboard included daily for both resorts. I'm really looking forward to the canoe breakfast! cheesy.gif

hey AJ!

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. :P i just love to travel!!

Share pics from your trip! When are you going?

i will definitly share our pictures.. i know convincing my hubby to take the flight wasnt easy but it will be worth it in the long run.. It actually isnt anymore expensive than our trip to Moorea and Bora Bora just a longer flight with a stopover in Dubai. This will also probably be our last big international trip as we will also be trying for a family soon as my time is ticking so they say hahahah. where are you guys staying in hawaii?

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
