Here are the best luxury resorts in Bora Bora

Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora – The Four Seasons in Bora Bora is picturesque to say the least. The exceptional rooms are large with doors that open up to reveal the crystal blue water of the South Pacific and the bright night stars. Immerse yourself in ultramodern comforts as well as the spirit of French Polynesia with exotic over water bungalows and beachfront villas with pools. If what you’re looking for is feeling special and being spoiled from the moment you arrive in Bora Bora, then the Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora will fit the bill.

The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort – Sitting on powdery sands and a tranquil lagoon, this resort ranks right at the top when it comes to carefree elegance. There are one hundred exquisitely designed guest rooms. The highlights of the resort are the over water bungalows and beach villas, many of which include huge decks with a jacuzzi and fantastic views of Mount Otemanu and the beautiful blue water of the lagoon. The main pool has a great swim-up bar and a romantic adult pool offers private cabanas. Not long ago, Hollywood took over the entire St. Regis Bora Bora Resort to film “Couples Retreat.”

InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa – The Intercontinental Thalasso Spa is a beachside property located on Motu Piti Aau. It is reachable only by boat upon landing at Bora Bora Airport which is approximately two and a half miles away. The resort is modern while keeping a Tahitian feel and offers incredibly large and luxurious bungalows as well as a very relaxing spa. Most bungalows have a very private feel and a magnificent view of Bora Bora.

Le Meridien Bora Bora – Le Meridien Bora Bora has one of the better locations on the island and the staff is truly wonderful. Built on the southern point of Motu Piti Aau, a six mile islet on the coral reef, the resort offers an unsurpassed view of the world renowned Mount Otemanu. It is approximately twenty minutes by boat from the Bora Bora airport and five minutes by boat from the main island of Bora Bora. The turtle sanctuary is a unique aspect of the resort which is a must see as it is both interesting and educational.

Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa
– The Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort and Spa is nestled in an idyllic cove of white sand and majestic igneous rock. The rooms are spacious, the views are incredible and the beds are huge and fluffy. The Royal Villas are slightly larger than the typical over water villas and offer a living room and an outdoor jacuzzi on the deck. Take in views of the Mt. Otemanu volcano and the islands of Tahaa and Raiatea from the hilltop Nui Spa and sample delicious local cuisines from the Iriatai Panoramic Restaurant.

InterContinental Le Moana Bora Bora – The Intercontinental Le Moana Bora Bora is in a great location on Matira point. The resort is situated on the main island and is convenient to nearby restaurants, towns, and sightseeing. While the resort is a little bit older than some of the other luxury resorts, the facilities themselves are very comfortable. The two white sand beaches and over water bungalows are ingredients for a wonderful stay.

Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort & Spa – Located on Motu Tevairoa, facing the island of Bora Bora, the Pearl Beach Resort offers a place to luxuriate in magical surroundings with unsurpassed views of Mount Otemanu. This traditional Polynesian style resort is located ten minutes by private boat from the airport and fifteen minutes from Vaitape, the main village of Bora Bora. Cool features at this resort are the glass-topped coffee table in the bungalow with removable top for feeding the fish below as well as the glass in the bathroom and dressing room that allow you to constantly view the sea life below.

    Sadly most people miss it because most of these resorts are so expensive …4 figures a night. We had two Mai Tai’s at one ( plus one virgin Mai Tai) and the bill was almost 50 bucks to give you some idea of what scares people away from Bora Bora. 😉

    For those seeking a fantasy or special occasion, these resorts certainly are wonderful, but there are other ways to actually experience Bora Bora like a local ( and experiencing the luxury of the hotels too without staying overnight) on a very low budget. We only spent 350 dollars total for 3 people for almost a week in Bora Bora while also easily spending some time at several of these hotels.

    The plane ride into Bora Bora is spectacular & the lovely lagoon boat ride in is part of the cost of the flight. We’ll be back for a long stay & to check out more of these beautiful islands as we only had time for 3 this time.
