Replying just because we are going in October for 10 days and I am down for some ideas and tips on what to do. 

We are staying at the Intercontinental Thalasso Spa on an overwater bungalow. 

Check it out if you want. 🙂

We did the IC Thalasso as well, overwater bungalow. We did 8 days there and 4 on Moorea, total of around 13k. You’re going to have a blast, but make sure you have at least a half board meal plan, or else I would expect o budget and extra 2000 for food and booze for the two weeks.

I would definitely, definitely recommend visiting another island during the two weeks, and I would highly recommend Moorea. It is anotherflight, under an hour, but honestly worth it. We went to Moorea first, which is accessed by ferry from Tahiti (bus from airport to harbor, 30 min ferry, all handled by Intercontinental). It looks completely different than BB (very lush, small mountains, gorgeous flowers). While its all a dream, we would have gone mad on BB for two weeks- there’s not a lot to do outside of the resorts, and if you’re staying on one of the outer resorts (IC Thalasso, St Regis, Four Seasons, etc), transport to and from the main island is not convenient or transparent. We also stayed with IC on Moorea, it’s the resort with the dolphin and turtle centers. Awesome. The food was excellent at the IC Thalasso on BB, it was good on Moorea. There are more restaurants/things to explore on Moorea than BB. I would definitely have a travel agent do the bookings to ensure all of your transfers (ferries, buses, planes) and meal plans are included in a package.

I’m more than happy to answer specific questions for anyone. Apologies for the rambling, I’ve just gotten off another very long plane ride for our first anniversary trip:)

We are planning our honeymoon to Moorea (maybe Bora Bora but most likely Moorea). FI doesnt like all the flights so I don’t want to push it. At least we can take the ferry from Tahiti!
