"Beautiful location, wonderful staff"
Stayed here for a few nights before joining a cruise. The overwater cabins are fabulous and the staff are always friendly cheerful, helpful and attentive. Cannot fault the location or the experience. Remember Bora Bora has to ship in everything and electricity and water are expensive when you see the prices. They are fair but not cheap so you will have to pay for your experience. My wife is Vegan and did have a few difficulties working out what she could eat and drink. While vegetarians where catered for, vegans aren’t quite. It would take a lot of effort to stay fully vegan here. All round and awesome experience.
We take this chance to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The view is absolutely fantastic. The facet of Mount Otemanu is the greatest from my point of view. We take photos in the main beach every morning and afternoon as it is also a great location to admire sunshine and sunset. A little surprise, or sweet service, such as a bottle of wine or rose petals spreading over bed, is the only thing lacking in the resort as we already indicated that this is our wedding anniversary during booking.
"Won me over"
I’m in the travel business. I’ve traveled a fair bit of the world staying in posh to most simple hotels and resorts. I came to Thalasso with a touch of skepticism. Honestly, I wondered, just how special could a 5-star resort with all overwater bungalows really be' Well, in just short 24-hours I found out. This place is impressive. And not just for its clear turquoise colored water, and its stunning views around every corner. It is the people working at the resort genuinely liking the job they do and appreciating the guests that make the resort the success it is. I’ve not been to other overwater resorts here, but if you’ve ever considered giving it a try, I’d say hands down this would be the place to go.
"Iconic Bora Bora at its best"
This is a beautiful resort set in the backdrop of the classic twin peaked and emerald green mountain. The spa is amazing and you look down at fish below during a massage. The treatment pools all have deep sea water. I had sore leg muscles from exercising and the jets in the leg pool fixed those much to my surprise. The staff were expert and gracious. Weather was perfect and our stay was ideal. The resort is building some super lux villas at the end of each pier. These will have full frontal views of the mountain, complete privacy, plunge pools and top decor. We toured them out of curiosity and they will be beyond perfect. I heard they are to open at the end of 2017 and the intro rates will be very very good. If I were returning soon, I would snag one!
"Paradise on earth "
The IC Thalasso Resort is the epitome of luxury. Each villa is over the water with a glass coffee table which enables you to look into the water. A private pontoon gives you direct access to the lagoon. Service is impeccable - staff are warm and hospitable and always greet clients with ‘Ia Orana’. There is a Polynesian cultural dance show at the Reef Restaurant every Monday and Friday evening. Make sure you make a reservation for tables with the best views of the stage. The other restaurant, Sands, serves ala carte dishes. As the name suggests, you can dine on the beach. As usual, do make a request if you want a table on the beach. The IC Thalasso does not come cheap. Food and beverage is astronomically expensive and you don’t have a choice but to dine at the resort unless you go to the main village of Vaitape on the main island. I would therefore recommend that you take up the half board package with breakfast and dinner included. As a rough guide, buffet breakfast costs US$50 while buffet dinner without drinks costs around US$100 per person. Therefore it is easy to spend at least US$150 on food alone per person per day. The villa I stayed at was 124. It has a gorgeous view of Mt Otemanu and it commands a price premium. The half board package for the Mt Otemanu view villa was US$1600. Activities are expensive. It is better to book directly with Moana Adventures rather than with the hotel.
