Located in the South Pacific, Bora Bora is one of the most well-known dream destinations on the planet. It has been featured in countless photographs and paintings and words and descriptions simply can’t do it justice. The spiky green mountains, the myriad of shades of turquoise to baby blue to navy, and the calm lagoons are all mesmerizing. Even the plane ride over, with sweeping views of the archipelago’s stunning beauty from your window, is a visual intoxication.
When you finally arrive, it’s easy to understand why Bora Bora is so popular and coveted. The Four Seasons Bora Bora Resort is a top choice for many travelers to the destination. The property is actually on a separate island off the coast of Bora Bora and consists of a number of overwater bungalows along with beachfront, pool and restaurant accommodations.
The Four Seasons is famous for their service and they do not disappoint in Bora Bora. From the moment your plane lands in Papeete and you are whisked away to the property, it is apparent that they treat their guests like royalty. The staff at this luxury hotel is the best in the world and they are truly there to make your stay the perfect experience.
One of the best parts of staying at the Four Seasons Bora Bora is that you can see Mount Otemanu from every corner of the resort. Each building and restaurant focuses their view on this gorgeous mountain. In fact, most of the overwater bungalows also face this mountain. The result is a spectacular property that feels isolated from the rest of Bora Bora, almost as if you are the only people on the entire island.
While the Four Seasons can be a little pricey (especially for those looking to stay in the overwater bungalows), it is a must-visit if you have the budget. I would suggest doing a few nights here and balancing it out with a few other hotels or on-land activities to help keep the overall cost down.
The hotel is a luxury paradise with a beautiful and spacious layout, restaurants, spa, and so much more. There are a few different room options, but the majority of the rooms are suite-style with a separate bedroom and living room. There is also a large beachfront infinity pool, cafe, white sand beach, and some lounge chairs that are all steps away from your room. The Te Mahana Spa onsite offers spa services including facials, wraps, manis and pedis, and hair treatments in addition to massages.
Another great part about this hotel is that it’s a short boat ride from the airport and is close to everything on the main island. This makes it a perfect base to explore the rest of the islands on your trip.
