Le Taha’a Island Resort & Spa
The Le Taha’a Island Resort and Spa, located on Motu Tautau on the coral reef, faces the island of Taha’a on one side and Bora Bora on the other. Manea Spa is situated between a small lake and the lagoon and lies snugly in the shade of a coconut grove. The spa is built in typical Polynesian style to synchronize perfectly with the environment of this motu or islet.
The spa provides many amenities for those interested in relaxing and invigorating treatments. There are massage rooms with Jacuzzis, overlooking the lake and an open-air Vichy shower (taken lying flat on a table with the water jets spraying all over). There is a beach Jacuzzi beside the Manea Spa, where you can lie in peaceful bliss, while feasting on the scenic splendor before you.

In the heart of the resort is the spa, which has been designed and built keeping in mind the traditional Polynesian concepts of wellness and health. You have at your disposal five massage specialists and a host of facilities. You can soak in the hammam (the traditional steam bath), have a Vichy shower and then indulge in the Polynesian taurumi or massage, which will clear your clogged mind and give you a new energy and zest for life.
Bora Bora Lagoon Resort & Spa
The word Maru in Polynesia means “gentle, soft of sound and soft of touch” and the Maru Spa at the Bora Bora Lagoon Resort epitomizes the essence of this word. There are five treatment rooms, some on the water front and some on the branches of two huge banyan trees, 12 feet above the ground. The only treetop spa in French Polynesia, the Maru Spa offers an array of treatments, both traditional and modern. Have a massage in the treetop massage room and view the lagoon through large windows, or try the Vanira Maohi, a fragrant bath with sea salts and vanilla.
