    Default Bora-Bora: Over and under

    Bora-Bora is a dream landscape just 160 miles northwest of Tahiti. L.A. Times photographer Bob Chamberlin caught both sides of this island where ultra-luxurious hotels have sprouted in the past few years -- all designed to lure the world's most affluent travelers to this fabled South Pacific island.


    Over and under: Hotel Bora Bora


    Over: The crystalline coast


    Over: The Intercontinental


    Over: In the shadow of Mt. Otemanu


    Under: A tropical trek


    Under: Shark time


    Over: A bat ray near the St. Regis


    Over: Bora Bora Nui Resort and Spa in Vaitape


    Over: Restaurant at the St. Regis


    Over and under: Water lilies

    My friend got to go there to work on a movie. A far cry from the shitholes where she is usually sent.

    Me too. I love beaches and have always longed to go to Bora Bora because of the pictures. Maybe I'll do it this year.

    When you go there, how do you make yourself leave? If I ever got to go there, I would never want to leave.

    This is paradise on earth, so unspoiled. I didn't even know where it was but it seems to be as far away from anything you can go, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. And it costs a fortune to go there.

    ^^ Yeah, I was pretty bummed when I saw how much it cost just for a week. Not in this lifetime, unfortunately.

    We were there on our honeymoon. It's just as incredible as you imagine. We had one of those bungalows over the water, and the floor was made of plexi so you could look down into the lagoon. Absolutely amaing!

    Count me in as longing to go here......

    If I had to choose any place on Earth--it would be Bora Bora.

    My cousin went there on his honeymoon, for 3 wks. Said it was unbelieveable....

    Someday....
