Help! French Polynesian, Bora Bora? Activities? OTW, Renewing vows, Etc.

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have discussed & dreamed of a trip to Bora Bora since we met back in 2000! It looks like this year is the year it's going to happen! However in doing research I am currently I am struggling with a few things and could use some input/advice.

1. Which hotel? I gather from info I've read that the Intercontinental (we stayed at the Intercontinental in Knob Hill, on our trip to San Francisco; though the room was small we enjoyed it) is by far the best in Bora Bora but I'm trying to confirm this. Also if any can tell me how the OTW is set up in the rooms there? Are they the see through floor, the small little square in floor in the hall or the table top glass? I've seen ads for all three.

2. Are the activities plentiful in Bora Bora such as tours, shopping, bars (nothing night clubby or crazy) & etc? Though I do LOVE the beach and love to relax and take in the beauty it can get pretty boring for me......which leads me to this question..

3. We will be traveling from the the mid-west region of the U.S. and plan to be gone from home 8 days/nights. Keeping this in mind; would you say it's too much travel time to consider another destination for more activities prior to Bora Bora then end the trip with this nice relaxing romantic destination? If not where would you suggest? Are NZ or AU too far, if yes. I'm up for suggestions.

4. We are considering renewing our vows during whilst visiting this beautiful area and I'm hoping that someone could suggest a location company hotel o service that does this. It would of course be small & simple it's just the 2 of us.

5. From other sites/posts I've read seemingly Bora Bora is becoming too commercial/touristy due to cruise ships etc in the area and losing some of the natural lagoon beauty due to the OTW's. Did you find this to be true? If so....we may consider a different area with OTW's that is similar to Bora Bora was the 80's; which is when I first heard about and saw photos of this wondrous place.

Any hints clues suggestions ideas etc etc are very welcome. Thanks so much!
