Planning on going away 10-14 days. Hope to do 5 nights BOB. Any recommendations on where to go After BOB?
Was thinking Island hopper but requires me to go to Japan or LAX (and then back to Hnl) first  which is a no go due to limited time.
Any other ideas? Keep in mind I have 4-8 days

I did 5 nights in BOB and then went on to Australia for about the same amount of time.

Thanks so much!
So now....5 years later.... what’s your recommendations/regrets regarding your trip?
After being in BOB would you have preferred to explore other islands in the area?
Would you have preferred to explore NZ?
Did you end up doing GOR? How many days recommend for GOR?MEL?SYD?

Moorea is a beautiful island near Tahiti. If you end up there, I would recommend the Intercontinental Moorea.   

I stayed in the Sofitel Moorea, great hotel and beautiful island

How is le Meridien?
Currently only seeing availability for this one and only 4 nights ugh (what are odds space opens up later?)
Oddly, when I search st Regis shows availability but when I click on it it disappears (for multiple dates...)
ETA: what are best hotel point options? (Hilton is insane!)

Correct me if I'm wrong - the only itenerary that works from nyc to bob getting in a 3 night stay but avoiding being the from Thursday night thru motsei shabbos to avoid any shabbos shailos (i.e. having to keep dioyraysas on Thursday night/Friday etc) and using miles is -
Nyc to lax sometime before shabbos
Lax to ppt on af motsei shabbos flight 1130pm
Ppt to bob Sunday morning/afternoon
Bob to ppt Wednesday afternoon/ night
Ppt to lax on tn Wednesday night 1159pm
Lazy to nyc either on Thursday on same award
Or anytime after but would have to pay separately

I just got back from a stay at Le Meridien Bora Bora. Short version, the resort was great, truly paradise. The layout of the resort was great in my opinion, lagoon on one side, turn around and the ocean on the other. The OWBs are slightly tired and could use a refresh, but if you are there to admire and relax in paradise, then they are great. A great thing about Le Meridien is they will take you(by boat) to St Regis for no charge. DM me if you want more details.

I did 5 nights in BOB and then went on to Australia for about the same amount of time.
Thinking of doing the same, debating if i should NZ or AU... would love to take advantage of the direct SQ flight with the availability they have now

having a tough time finding availability at the STR without the mandatory cash upgrade  (would likely just pay if i cant find anything).
also i cant find a single saver in J from NYC with normal routing, im basically left with NYC-SIN-AKL-PPT-BOB which is insane....
