When visiting Bora Bora, in our opinion, there is only ONE place to stay! The overwater bungalows at the St. Regis Bora Bora. The movie Couples Retreat was filmed here and we can now understand why! It is the ultimate oasis for couples!
For unsurpassed luxury in Iceland, the Diamond Suites and the Hotel Keflavík are unparalleled! The country's only 5 star hotel!
As we are about to go for the THIRD time, our only go-to luxury hotel is the amazing Grand Velas, with top-shelf all inclusive five star dining - "Grand Velas Riviera Maya features the top restaurants in Riviera Maya, featuring the artistry of acclaimed chefs from around the world, including Spain,Italy, France and Mexico. Grand Velas has reinvented the all inclusive concept by offering sumptuous luxury dining experiences, including chic gourmet restaurants, casual family bistros, outdoor eateries with ocean views, poolside bars, and hip lounges."
We came for a quick spa weekend at Nordik, and were very impressed with the Hilton on the Leamy lake. Amazing waterfront views, top notch service, and an amazing in-hotel spa, and heated indoor-outdoor pool, connected by a bar!
Had an amazing stay at Morrit's @ The Londoner! Amazing snorkeling right outside our condo, tiki restaurant within steps from our porch, and incredible excursions!
The St. Regis organized this incredible excursion where we were able to tour the mainland and mountain by ATV, see amazing views of the caldera and lagoon, and see the serene lifestyle of the French Polynesian locals.
Vitamin Sea offers one of the coolest boat tours we've ever been on! They left right from our dock at the St. Regis and sailed around the entire lagoon with relaxing music - just 4 couples on lounges! We stopped for a swim in shallow water with a floating bar to enjoy champagne and delicious fruit. They even gave us flowers for great photo ops!
We highly recommend the luxury experience at the Blue Lagoon (private changing area, snacks/drinks, private entrance into lagoon, robes, etc.) - This is one of the coolest experiences you'll ever do! Walk up bars with either alcohol, or mud masks, there is something for everyone!
This is the only way to see the Tulum Ruins in Tulum, Mexico! They picked us up right from the Grand Velas Resort, and took us to the nearby port where we took a 82 foot catamaran for the 2 hour sail. We enjoyed open bar, then stopped for snorkeling right off the coast of Tulum! We then ate lunch on the boat, then explored the island and restaurant right at the Tulum beachfront (where we drank from coconuts and sat on the cutest rope swing barstool's), then had a detailed private tour of the Tulum ruins and spectacular cliff views of the ocean!
Another must-do excursion in Bora Bora is the jetski tour of the lagoon! The views of Mount Otemanu are breathtaking, and the water under your feet is the clearest in the world! It's like riding in paradise, especially when you realize the tour guides have gone to shore to pick up fresh coconuts for us to eat, along with the sweetest mango and yellow grapefruits we've EVER tasted... hand cut in a bowl he weaved right in front of us, then served on the back of one of the jetski's! It was such an incredible experience!
Had a fantastic time aboard the Spirit of the Islands and had an amazing 3 course dinner, cooked on the on-board grill, and great cocktails, watching the sunset along Seven Mile Beach! Had a delicious meal-appetizer of Cream of Tomato Soup served with focaccia bread, Entree of
Blackened Fish Taco topped with Mango Salsa and Lime Slaw and
Cured and Slow Smoked Baby Back Pork Ribs in a Honey Garlic Glaze with
a delicious buffet of sides!
Had an incredible time at sea in Iceland, spotting some of the Atlantic Ocean's most magnificent mammals. We saw minke whales, dolphins, porpoises and puffins!
4x4 Tours has an incredible excursion for anyone who wants to see gorgeous Iceland and its incredible volcanic rock and GLACIER views! The staff at the Diamond Suites (Hotel Keflavík) made everything incredibly easy!
One of the most relaxing and detoxifying places in the world! SO many pools, heat spa's, sauna's, steam rooms, cold plunges, the Kalla treatment, DOZENS of amazing spa treatments I don't have time to name! Plus pools, relaxing areas, bars, fireplaces, GALORE! Spa doesn't begin to describe this oasis in Canada!
One of the coolest excursions! Ride a Jet Ski over Caribbean waters to the Stingray City Sandbar, where you’ll see plenty of southern stingrays in their natural environment, then continue to the barrier reef for a snorkeling tour. This active 2.5-hour Grand Cayman experience combines all three aquatic activities in one adventure
"While you’re on a kayak tour, one of the most magical experiences you can have is seeing the glow of Bioluminescence. In a marine environment, many living organisms have the capability to emit light for survival and reproduction." Such a magical experience!
