Located on the small South Pacific island of Bora Bora and surrounded by sand-fringed islets, you will find the tropical wonderland of the Four Seasons Bora Bora. Its beautiful lagoon, teeming with marine life, is truly bucket list-worthy and right on the resort’s doorstep.

Neill, Louisa and Amy are here to help give you the inside track.

The expansive hotel features beach front villas dotted across coconut-fringed shores and overwater bungalow suites perched on stilts over the lagoon. Each room offers panoramic views over the crystal-clear waters and the magnificent Mount Otemanu. Thatched roofs, original French Polynesian artwork and traditional teakwood furnishings give a nod to the local culture. Each villa comes equipped with snorkelling equipment, so guests can explore the local marine life straight from their room.

Guests can dine on exquisite delicacies in one of the four restaurants. At Arii Moana guests can dine on Polynesian-French fusion specialities while also feasting on views of the lagoon. Open-air Tere Nui serves delicious fresh breakfasts and authentic themed dinners. Fare Hoa Beach Bar & Grill is the perfect spot for a light lunch and afternoon cocktail whilst Sunset Restaurant & Bar is something of a social hub in the evenings. Here guests can savour freshly prepared sushi and Asian-inspired dinners over delectable cocktails.

Beyond scuba diving and snorkelling, a plethora of additional activities are also on offer catering for all the family. Kids can set out on a Polynesian adventure at The Tamarii Club, offering both indoor and outdoor activities while the luxury spa, featuring treatments using local natural ingredients, provides an ideal setting for parents to unwind. Guests seeking to keep fit can work out in the fitness centre, play tennis on one of the courts or practice yoga on the over-water sunrise platform.

Why we love it

It is not often that one can float in a blue lagoon and gaze at Mount Otemanu, while surrounded by the sandy islets of an outer coral reef.
