@kjweaver:  Well how do you define reasonablly priced?  H and I spent our honeymoon in Moorea and Bora Bora in overwater bungalows.  It was PHENOMENAL and totally worth the expense.  I think we spent about $11K, which I guess is reasonable for what you get.  We stayed at the Hilton on Moorea and the Pearl Beach Resort and Spa on Bora Bora.  Both were great hotels with wonderful service, you just have to be prepared to spend a lot of on food.

 

On the flip side, H and some friends and I are looking to vacation somewhere in the Caribbean or Costa Rica.  Do you have any recommendations from your travels there?

Oh…I just read you want reasonably priced. What does that mean for you? Our honeymoon was about $15k. We had originally booked Tahiti and moorea but cancelled to go to the Maldives. Many of my friends have done Tahiti but nobody had been to the Maldives. It was the most amazing time!!

@kjweaver:  I dont think you can get the overwater huts for that. The airfare to the places that mostly have them is about $2-3k alone not including the accomodations. I do know that Belize has some though. What about Costa Rica or Hawaii?

@kjweaver:  Excellent choice!  We loved the resort: friendly staff, good food, beautiful grounds, and fantastic overwater bungalows.  The best part was being able to walk off our little, private dock right into the most beautiful water I’ve ever seen.  Just be aware that everything is expesnive – I’m talking like $15-$20 sandwiches, $10+ drink expensive.  

I would definitely take a shark feeding/snorkel tour and spend some time exploring the island.  Our TA recommended that we rent a car for a day and explore but we never got around to it.  Instead we ended up wandering through only one of the towns and I regret not getting the car and driving around the island.

Paddle boarding is also worth trying and we had a good time renting a (free) kayak and paddling along the shore.  The water is seriously to die for! 

I hope you have a good time!
