Maru Spa at Bora Bora Lagoon Resort

In this day and age of discount Internet travel packages and the fast & loose advertising schemes that go along with them, the terms “luxurious” and “paradise” have been thrown around and overused to the point they are virtually meaningless. But Talkspas would never abuse those words and with that said, we’d like to share with you a truly luxurious paradise that is tantamount to heaven on earth: Maru Spa at Bora Bora Lagoon Resort.

Located in the South Pacific’s French Polynesia and a member of Orient Express – a collection of the finest hotels, trains, resorts, restaurants and travel experiences in the world – Maru Spa is located on an idyllic islet with the exotic name of Toopua, and situated along a cobalt blue lagoon. If that doesn’t sound paradisiacal enough, consider that Maru Spa is located on a treetop surrounded by lush vegetation, waterfalls, pristine beaches and sacred Banyan trees. Oh, and one more thing: this tropical heaven is only accessible from the resort by boat. Maru Spa’s offerings, not surprisingly, are like no other; incorporating a distinctly Polynesian twist, the spa’s therapists utilize locally harvested coconuts and macerated tiare – the Tahitian Gardenia flower – to create beauty-enhancing concoctions that exude the most divine aromas. Spa treatments include: The Signature Experience, involving a tropical rain massage, body modelage using a fruit-based body mousse, and gentle exfoliation; the Sacred Tamanu, a wrap, massage and facial incorporating oil from the ancient Tamanu tree; and the Royal Maru Spa Experience, which lavishes couples with a full body treatment including a coconut milk wash and an exotic flower bath.

If paying a visit to Maru Spa, it is well worth staying at the Bora Bora Lagoon Resort. A tropical hideaway unlike any other, its elaborate waterways and gardens, and lavish dining – delivered to the room by canoe if desired – offer even the most demanding spa-enthusiast a highly original experience.
