In Short AMAZING. Beyond a dream.
To Elaborate This was absolutely the honeymoon of our dreams. The IC Thalasso has the best view of Mount Otemanu of any of the resorts on the motu. We woke up in our over the water bungalow every morning surrounded by the gorgeous, crystal clear lagoon and amazing views.
The resort was sold out while we there, but we never felt overcrowded and definitely had privacy in our bungalow. Staff was attentive and kind. Every guest was either on their honeymoon or celebrating an anniversary. The spa was fantastic.
There is a free shuttle that runs between the IC Thalasso and its sister Le Moana resort several times daily to give you access to the main island, and once you arrive at Le Moana you can take a quick shuttle into town. This was great to stock up on groceries, etc. as Bora Bora gets pricey fast. We saved a good amount stocking up on drink mixers, snacks, etc.
We booked excursions in advance but if you'd like to book on site, the staff was helpful. My husband and I love a mix of relaxing on the beach but also some adventure, and Bora Bora certainly met our expectations. We spent most of our time in the water - the lagoon is breathtaking and the water is like bath water.
Definitely be prepared to spend a lot to go there, to stay there, and while you're there, but it was worth every penny as it was truly a once in a lifetime experience. Would love to go back one day! So romantic, relaxing yet fun, and unbelievably beautiful.
