In our travel community there is always a discussion which is better St. Regis or Four Seasons, and now Conrad is in that mix, too. And they all impressed me, as well as Intercontinental Thalasso. And I am still picking Le Meridien for my Bora Bora DC’s Pick! What I like about it is the large glass floors in the overthewater bungalows, If you swim under you can see inside the bungalow at night. I like that the resort is unpretentious, relaxed, but still elegant and upscale. Also, the conservation efforts at their own turtle center Bora Bora, where they have a marine biologist on staff to take care of injured turtles is a project very close to my heart. Most of the resorts in Bora Bora have some sort of rehabilitation center and are committed to the marine life in one way or another, as the marine life makes this amazing archipelago what it is.
There is also a wedding chapel with a glass bottom floor! You can get married with not only 360 view, but the view under your feet! They say Bora Bora has 42 shades of blue in their water, and this is NOT a marketing ploy, it is just the truth. You can take your cellphone and snap any photo and it will look like a screen saver, and yet, what you are seeing around you pales in comparison to any photo. When they say picture is worth a thousand words, I say picture doesn’t do it justice. What I tell my honeymoon couples is to put their cameras down and absorb this profound experience that is French Polynesia….For exclusive Bora Bora packages e-mail me.
