Bora Bora Honeymoon help
Posted: Mar 12, 2007 6:26 PM

Hi all,

I'm new here and am in the process of planning my honeymoon!  Anyone been to the Intercontinental Thalasso in Bora Bora or the Sherton in Moorea?  We are pretty much set on these resorts but just want to get as much input as possible!  We also considered the Pearl in Bora Bora but the Thalasso seems so much nicer! Thoughts?  We got alot of quotes from different sources and have finally settled down.  Found a great agent who is one of those specialists.  Anyway, if anyone can give us their feedback it would be most appreciated.  We also are wondering about activities.

thanks!

I know another bride on here, Jamiesbabydoll (Chrissie), and she and her husband went to Tahiti for their honeymoon.  They stayed at the Intercontinental in Papeete and said it had VERY hard beds.  They view was georgeous.  I know elitegroup has suggested the Bora Bora Lagoon to me for a vacation destination.  Also, she saod the island of Tahaa was very nice and actually had the best beaches, snorkeling, etc.  She also said the Radisson did not have the overwater bungalows, which is where we would want to stay.

Here's a link to the Bora Bora Lagoon:

Yes I have been to all of them.  I am also a Tahiti Tiare Specialists.. which means I had to visit all the islands.  ( that was really hard) and take a test over 500 questions long..  ( actually that was harder) My favorite is the Bora Bora Lagoon for many reasons..  I did not like the Pearl at all.  the Pearl in Moorea is much nicer.. and the Bora Bora Lagoon right now is running a honeymoon special that you pay for 3 nights and get 5.. If you agent cannot answer all your questions let me know how we can help.

 

Cool Have a great day! and Congrats to you

Hi there!

I am also a Tiare Specialist and travel to Tahiti and her islands every few months.  The Thalasso is an incredible property.  I stayed there in November.  The best part is that you can use the facilities at their sister resort, the Le Moana too!  The bungalows at the Thalasso are five star plus, very contemporary in design, gigantic and the view of the island is unforgettable.  I am sure you will love it there.  Activities are many in Bora Bora.  One of the most popular is the shark and ray feeding.  The motu picnic is great but really really expensive.  I suggest also, that you have dinner at the Villa Mahana.  A wonderful romantic restaurant on the island.  It's expensive but the chef is quite creative.  Small portions of delectable food!  It books up far in advance so have your agent get you a reservation right away.  The upstairs tables are the most romantic.  You can email the chef directly as well at:

damien@villamahana.com

Hope this helps you!

Hi Evon

Yes it is a beautiful property.  Iwould have to see if they have ironed out their problems.. it was leaking for about 6-8 weeks after it opened.  What dates are you looking at?  IF you are already working with an Agent who is a Tahiti Tiare Specialists.. ( we are certified till May 2010) she should answer all your questions as I am .  let me know know if you need any other questions answered.


 

Cool Have a great day! and Congrats to you

I too am looking at going to Tahiti or Bora Bora and has anyone ever used the tahiti tourism website to book specials. They have some amazing specials and I was just curious if you have had any luck with it. If anyone knows anything, please post back! Thank you!

Personally, I would use a travel agent for any trip you are booking that will cost you a lot of money.  What if something happens like a tsunami?  Then what?  How do you get your money back, re-schedule your honeymoon, book a different place?  USE A TRAVEL AGENT!!!  You will thank yourself in the long run.  Besides, sometimes you get what you pay for and I don't know if your "Dream" honeymoon is worth the risk.  You know?

Using a Tiare Specialist, they are listed on the official Tahiti Tourism Website, is really the smart way to book.  All the specialst that are on the official website can be booked by Specialists!  This way, you get the deals, and you have someone to help you with all your questions.  Also, an agent will watch your air for schedule changes and most likely will have a cancellation insurance policy that will cover you for ANY reason if you should have to cancel.  Hope this has been helpful!

Have a great Easter weekend!

thanks everyone!  So has anyone done the shark and ray feeding or the motu picnic?  Anyone who can give alittle more info on excursions would be most appreciated. 

About the Tahiti Tourism site, when I enquired about a special on there I was contacted by one of their specialists.  I guess they refer them.  Anyway, we have a great one!

best,

evon
