In a thatched bungalow adorned with red and orange hibiscus blossoms, the view from the window encompasses azure sky, teal water, and deep green tropical foliage. By the end of a fifty minute massage, guests are relaxed, smoothed, and perfumed enough to practically float down the hill to the villas. Massages available at the Bora Bora Nui include the Heaven & Health massage, described as “combining ritual touches from around the globe,” the Balanese Aromatherapy Massage, and a Deep Tissue Massage which one elderly guest declared worked wonders on her arthritic knee. The Four Hands Massage features two therapists working in tandem on one client, and the Time for Two Special is a side-by-side couple’s massage with a private hydrotherapy Jacuzzi included. Honeymooners can arrange for a couple’s massage in their room at sunset, complete with a flower petal milk bath. Special baths, wraps and rubs round out the offerings at this exceptionally luxurious spa.
Bora Bora Legend
Christine Hodgetts, who gives expert massages at the spa, reveals the history of the bungalow’s stunning hilltop location. According to legend, the place was once the home of a celebrated warrior named Hero, whose feats of bravery enabled him to become a god. Hero lived high on the island where he could view the surrounding waters. He communicated with the inhabitants of nearby islands by reverberating drumbeats on volcanic rocks. When guests survey the breathtaking view from the hilltop, it is easy to believe that a warrior god would make the place his home.
The Trip to the Spa
When it is time for the guest’s scheduled spa treatment, a small van arrives to provide transport across the elegantly landscaped grounds and up the hill to the bungalows. The tile-paved road winds past decorative banana and coconut trees and flowering gardens with sparkling fountains. The vast, blue ocean and sky are visible from every point along the road, stretching away from a crystalline infinity pool that appears to join with the sea. The heady perfume of tiare flowers permeates the island with a sweet, tropical scent.
Selecting Scents and Oils
Following a drink of cool, ginger-spiced tea; guests have a choice of tropical scented oils, including tiare and vanilla fragrances, for use in the massage. If desired, unscented cream can be used. These selections are presented on a low table that is lavishly decorated in red and orange hibiscus blossoms.. The effect is one of lush, tropical abundance.
Experience Private Luxury
While many resort spas offer outstanding service in luxurious surroundings, the Bora Bora Nui Spa’s approach allows each guest to enjoy the feeling of private attention. Treatments are given in the small, intimately appointed bungalows or in the guest’s rooms. The effect is that of being a million miles from any source of stress or distraction, while being treated to the most relaxing and rejuvenating of body-pampering care.
