5-star overwater bungalows overlooking Bora Bora for US$588 per night
While July and August are the busiest months in the South Pacific so it's difficult to find availability much less a deal, there are some fantastic deals starting in September. One I've just come across is for a resort we haven't featured lately because it seems to keep its prices high all the time, but as of now I see a 50% off offer for stays of a week in September and the following months.
The Le Taha'a Island Resort & Spa is a 5-star property with 48 overwater bungalows in addition to 12 island suites, and it's just across the water from Bora Bora so it has some of the finest views of the amazing Bora Bora mountains anywhere. It's worth a look when a resort that normally doesn't discount suddenly has a great offer, so see if this one works for you.
A Sunset Overwater Suite at the Le Taha'a Island Resort & Spa for US$588 per night for two people, including breakfast.
This deal is available through our booking partner, Hotels.com, which you can see when you click on Check Rates from our main Le Taha'a Island Resort & Spa page. It's a 50% off deal for stays of at least 7 nights, but that shouldn't be a problem since that's the typical length of stay anyway. Cancellation is free as well, and they do a Price Match Guarantee, so you can't go wrong.
Large overwater bungalows in an exclusive location
The Le Taha'a Island Resort is one of the premier resorts in the South Pacific, and it offers some of the most amazing views in the region. It's located on Le Taha'a Island, which is just southeast of Bora Bora, so it feels more private and exclusive than the 9 resorts on Bora Bora. You can either fly into the local airport and then take a 35-minute boat ride here, or fly into Bora Bora's airport and then take a spectacular 14-minute helicopter ride to Le Taha'a.
The overwater bungalows are all quite large, at over 1,000 square feet, and of course they include all the 5-star amenities that you could hope for, including separate bathtub and shower, a minibar, an in-room safe, and luxury bath accessories.
Feel the real Polynesia
Most resorts in the South Pacific are run by international chains and they try to go for a standard “luxury” experience, while the Le Taha'a Resort is one that is proud of its Polynesian location so it incorporates a lot of tropical paradise into the setting. There are beach barbeques and seafood buffets with local entertainment, in addition to 3 restaurants and 2 bars, all for only 60 total rooms.
While it's tempting when staying at a resort like this to just relax all day, in between short swims in the lagoon, you also have a long list of daytime activities from which to choose. Of course there is diving and snorkeling plus windsurfing, kayaks, tennis, and a variety of excursions to other parts of the island.
