Bora Bora Honeymoon: Overwater Bungalow and Spa Vacation

The islands of French Polynesia are a gorgeous collection of volcanic islands and atolls strewn lazily across the grand Pacific Ocean. Our honeymoon couple from Miami selected this Bora Bora Honeymoon: Overwater Bungalow and Spa Vacation to relax away their days and nights on Bora Bora, one of the world’s most exotic and luxurious islands.

They loved discovering the sparkling magic of the island’s lagoon, admiring the awe-inspiring Mount Otemanu, and pampering themselves with one of kind spa treatments. They decided to stay in an overwater bungalow at the Intercontinental Bora Bora & Thalasso Spa, as it is a small property with just 80 bungalows. On this heavenly Bora Bora Honeymoon: Overwater Bungalow and Spa Vacation, they were able to wake up in the morning, open the shades, and soak up gorgeous views of the famous Mt. Otemanu right from their bed.

During their amazing overwater bungalow vacation, they were utterly pampered with relaxing spa treatments that blend modern techniques with traditional Polynesian technique and deep sea ingredients. The day after they arrived, they washed away their jet lag with a heavenly, 2.5-hour couple’s massage in the comfort of their overwater bungalow. They also enjoyed a fabulous Polynesian Taurumi massage—a uniquely Tahitian massage treatment using local Hei Poa monoï oil—and a relaxing Pearl Rain massage to melt away all their stress.

Of course, they also enjoyed some adventures on their Bora Bora Honeymoon: Overwater Bungalow and Spa Vacation. They went on a full-day lagoon adventure, where they were able to swim with reef sharks and giant manta rays. It was certainly a highlight of their trip! They also decided to take a fun ATV tour through the lush tropical rainforest.

After a week in paradise, their Bora Bora Honeymoon: Overwater Bungalow and Spa Vacation came to an end. They returned home feeling rejuvenated and completely refreshed.
