“An overwater bungalow in Bora-Bora is at the top of my bucket list.” —Mindy Muniz Findley, via Facebook
For an up-close look at Bora-Bora’s lagoon, T+L A-List advisor Robin Turner can arrange a tour with the très genial Christophe Poch (from $112 per person), a French navy veteran who’ll take you swimming with leatherback sea turtles and a family of manta rays. Follow it up with a dinner of French-Tahitian dishes (seared ahi in vanilla oil; bananas flambé) at the cozy Villa Mahana. When it comes to hotels, Turner recommends the Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora for its 100 overwater bungalows with soaking tubs; the wellness- focused InterContinental Resort & Thalasso Spa or the St. Regis Bora Bora, spread out over 44 lush acres.
