6 nights in Bora Bora was just not enough. The crystal clear water and marine life was exquisite. Staying at the Intercontinental Le Moana was great as not only was it in a great location, but guests staying at this resort were also able to transfer free of charge to the Intercontinental Le Thellaso and Spa ( a 20 minute boat ride across the lagoon ).
A must do activity is the shark and stingray expedition- swimming with sharks and stingrays is out of this world. You start off in water only a meter deep and then are taken out of the lagoon and into the deeper water to swim with reef sharks - and if your lucky observe bull sharks swimming below..
Our accommodation was a deluxe overwater bungalow with a see-through coffee table to observe the marine life beneath. This also opened up so that you can feed the fish from your room. Always remember to bring water shoes, as Bora Bora do have Rock fish and in fact a hotel matron pulled one out of the water while we were there!
Food is amazing but expensive. We made a few trips to the local town were you can pick up some french bread sticks and an array of french cheese and pates to keep in the room to snack on ( yum!). One of the amazing restaurants we visited was La Villa Mahana, if you are going to be in town make sure to book in advance as the restaurant only has 6 tables per seating! The restaurant is owned by Chef Damien Rinaldi-Dovio who incorporates native Polynesian inspired ingredients with Mediterranean techniques.
