50th birthday trip

I'm turning 50 in July. My husband wanted to take me to Moorea and Bora Bora, but very expensive. I want to go someplace that I've never been before with a beautiful beach and really nice accommodations. I've been to Bali, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Jamaica, Mexico, Bahamas, Grand Cayman, Turks and Caicos, Grenada, St. Thomas, St. John, DR.... Never been to St. Lucia, Barbados, Aruba, Antiqua. Is there anywhere besides Moorea and Bora Bora that has over water bungalows? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much. I have been to Mexico and the Bahamas. I really don't like the Bahamas weather. Fiji and jade mountain sound nice, but still too expensive. I will still keep looking

Still looking for suggestions. I really want Tahiti, Moorea, and Bora Bora, but....$8K is a lot, not including the air from Chicago to LA. Oh well...I'll keep looking.

Ok. It's official and paid for I'm going to Tahiti, Moorea, and Bora Bora for my 50th birthday in a few weeks!!! We'll be staying in LA for a few days to take in the sites...and to make the extra costs worth it. Maybe I'll write a report on my adventures. I'm so excited!!!! Motto: You only turn 50 once!
