5-Star Bora Bora overwater bungalows starting just over US$700 per night
Of the group of the most luxurious overwater bungalow resorts in Bora Bora, one of the very nicest also is actually the most affordable. The InterContinental Bora Bora Resort and Thalasso Spa is easily one of the premiere 5-star resorts in all of the South Pacific, yet it sometimes has online special rates starting at US$707 per night, putting them several hundred dollars cheaper than most of the others.
When many of us dream of staying in an overwater bungalow we come up with specific images of resorts built over a clear-water lagoon with amazing views of Bora Bora's mountain, and there's a good chance that this specific resort is the one you are drooling over.
Emerald Overwater Villa starting at US$707 per night, per room
This deal was for dates in mid April of 2012 at the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort and Thalasso Spa, researched on our booking partner site, Agoda.com, which is known for having the cheapest rates at luxury hotels. The rate is based on the “Advance Purchase” option, which saves about 25%, so without that you'll be paying close to US$1,000 for the same room. Prices are sometimes a bit higher depending on how many rooms are sold for particular dates. Check the Agoda page for the resort for your own dates.
Amazing luxury at a bargain price
There are about 10 overwater bungalow resorts in Bora Bora, and most have rooms that average around 500 square feet, which is still quite a bit larger than a typical hotel room in a city. At the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort and Thalasso Spa the overwater villas are each over 1,000 square feet, with separate living rooms and bedrooms.
There are two TVs in each overwater villa, plus just about every other luxury amenity you could think of. For a honeymoon or romantic trip these bungalows cannot be beat. It's hard to describe what makes them so special so you are better off checking out the photos, or better yet, click over to the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort and Thalasso Spa page and scroll to the bottom to watch a video tour of one of the rooms.
Everything is 5-star
You probably know InterContinental as an international luxury hotel brand, so you'll obviously expect the highest standards of everything. You won't be disappointed here, with an excellent restaurant, one of the best spas in the South Pacific, plus a swimming pool, a fitness center, and even a business center.
If you want a huge and luxurious overwater bungalow in Bora Bora at a reasonable price then this resort should be the one you check first. Read the reviews yourself and you'll see that there are no sacrifices in quality in order to get the discounted rates. You'll have to go during a non-busy period to get the best online special deals, so it pays to be a bit flexible when booking.
