My family stayed 4 nights here. The over water villa was very spacious and beautiful. All the people working in the resort were friendly and kind, especially the pool boys! They had activities at noon and ray feeding at 2pm everyday. My son was anticipating the hat making on the last day so badly, but it rained a lot, so... More

We stayed for 4 nights in this incredible paradise. Truly beautiful, we had a villa over the water, which was spacious and comfortable, and the view - WOW!! The highlight, which we didn't tire of, was being in the Infinity pool, sipping a Bora Bora colada from a coconut. We did some trips (Jet ski - highly recommended!) and scuba... More

Absolutely beautiful property and setting. The rooms were spacious, well laid out, very clean, and just perfect. Hard to find anything to complain about. A little pricey as all things in French Polynesia are but that's the price of paradise.

As with most, my husband and I were celebrating our honeymoon in Bora Bora just a few days ago. We had originally booked our stay through a travel agent and had 3 nights at the sister property, Le Moana. Upon arrival at that property, we quickly realized we were looking for a more luxurious stay. I called Thalasso and luckily... More

Wow....can't imagine a more beautiful setting. So relaxing and beautiful. The bungalow was amazing and can't say enough for friendliness of concierge and maids. I was traveling alone but there cannot be a more perfect place for honeymooning.
