Luxury Bora Bora overwater bungalow for US$673 per night in April
The high season in Bora Bora officially starts in June, and by then all the resorts are obviously charging their peak rates. But in the months just before that you get basically the same weather along with better prices. One of the better examples is available now at the InterContinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort, which has overwater bungalows starting at US$673 per night in April.
It's true that there are a few cheaper resorts in Bora Bora for overwater bungalows, but they are at least a step down from this place. This resort has arguably the best location in the South Pacific, as it occupies its own peninsula on the southern tip of Bora Bora, with amazing views of the mountains in the center of the island.
An overwater bungalow at the InterContinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort for US$673 including all taxes, for two people during the month of April. This promotional rate also includes breakfast for two each day of your stay.
This rate is only available through the InterContinental Hotels website, and they guarantee it's the lowest published rate available anywhere. This promotional rate is based on a stay of at least 5 nights. Check your own travel dates for availability.
Large overwater bungalows and a stunning lagoon
The InterContinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort features 50 overwater bungalows and only 12 island rooms, so it's a smaller and more exclusive resort than several of the less expensive ones on the island. Each bungalow has a separate living room area complete with a glass coffee table so you can observe the sea life just below. The rooms also have a split-level private terrace with steps leading down into the lagoon, and you can clearly see by the photos that it's one of the best lagoons in the South Pacific.
It's a bit deceiving when they discuss the room size, as these are 52 square meters (592 square feet) in addition to the large furnished terrace. This puts them well above all but the 5-star resorts on Bora Bora for bungalow size. They also come with a minibar and wi-fi access, as well as all the luxury amenities you would expect in a posh InterContinental hotel.
Best of both worlds with location and economy
This resort was one of the earlier on Bora Bora, and it doesn't have its own on-site spa, but guests here can take a free shuttle boat to the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa, which is the 5-star sister resort of this one. So guests can use the spa and common facilities at the newer nearby resort while saving about 30% in the process.
The other interesting feature of the location is that it's near quite a few local Bora Bora restaurants and shops, so guests can dine wherever they please with little extra effort. At the top-end resorts you have to arrange for a boat to come pick you up and take you back, which certainly cuts down on choice and spontaneity.
