It's Travel Tuesday...Come Fly With Me to Bora Bora

Travel Tuesday is the day of dreams. Imagine that money is not an hinderance, where would you travel to. Today, let us fly off to the Maru Spa located in Bora Bora of the French Polynesian Islands.

Discover the only treetop Spa in Polynesia, the Marù Spa welcomes you to this lush environment of the Bora Bora Lagoon Resort & Spa. Located on a secluded motu in the middle of the most beautiful lagoon in the world, it is situated on the beachfront, surrounded with exotic basins, waterfalls and gorgeous lilies, in a peaceful and serene decor marked with Polynesian wisdom.

Masterfully designed with hardwood floors, bamboo and stone décor; high up in the midst of two giant Banyan trees are wooden cabins, containing hidden treatment rooms. Listen to the soft breeze of the wind passing through the leaves. A quartzite bath on the ground floor, welcomes you for a rich bath with coconut milk and fresh local flowers—a pure romantic relaxing moment. Our private independent suite offers a couple massage-rooms as well as a “rain shower,” for a traditional massage, a natural scrub or a vegetal wrap.

Marù Spa’s Polynesian influence echoes throughout with their signature spa products created especially for guests of the Bora Bora Lagoon Resort and Spa. Locals have retained the knowledge of using plants, flowers and specific fruits, such as the Noni, for both medicinal and cosmetic purposes. The Tahitian recipes, like the Monoï oil, are known and used all around the world for their benefits to hair and skin.

The mission at Marù Spa is to offer you an authentic and holistic Polynesian experience. Their therapists are influenced by Maohi culture and tradition; their aim is to meet your expectations and offer you renewal of your MIND, BODY and SOUL, whether alone, as a couple or a family.

The resort has 44 Over-the-Water Bungalows lined along three walkways arrayed from the beach over the lagoon. Each bungalow is furnished with a king or two twin beds and a private deck from where steps lead directly into the lagoon. The beautiful underwater sea life can be admired or fed through the illuminated glass-topped coffee table.

Each bungalow is built in the traditional Polynesian style with thatched roofs made from pandanus leaves. Inside it features, high-polished Yucca wood floors, Kaori wood walls, Kohu wood floor-to-ceiling louvers and timber blinds, authentic local-style furnishings, a two-meter couch in the living room, air conditioning, a bathroom with bathtub, separate shower and double basins, hairdryer, bathrobes, minibar, private safe, television, DVD player, tea & coffee making facilities, ceiling fan, direct dial phone and iron & iron board.

And why not take advantage of their Canoe Breakfast delivered right to your private deck. A canoe outrigger, manned with Tahitian staff will set up this delightful breakfast of Coffe, Tea and/or Hot Chocolate; Fruits Platter; Pastries; Butter, Jam and Cheese; Scrambled Eggs; Fruit Juice and a 1/2 bottle of champagne.

These and many other amenities await you at the Maru Spa where Polynesian service will make you feel welcomed and at home in their lush paradise.
