Beautiful Bora Bora's Overwater Bungalows

Welcome to Bora Bora. On this mystical island with its necklace of white-fringed coral islets, find accommodations that elevate your excitement and define South Seas elegance. Exotic over-water suites, and beachfront villas with pools immerse you in ultramodern comforts and the spirit of French Polynesia. Culinary art embraces vibrant sunsets over the island’s lofty peaks. Introduce your family to sea turtles. Kite-surf across the impossibly blue lagoon. Float away in a spa next to the rolling Pacific surf. Surrender to the unmatched luxury of a resort on Bora Bora.

Is there any better mental vacation than Bora Bora? Bora Bora is definitely dream trip material, and it’s worth noting that the French Polynesian island is on the U.S. side of the international dateline, and only an eight-hour flight from the West Coast. Air Tahiti Nui flies nonstop from L.A. to Papeete, and then it’s a 45-minute flight to Bora Bora.

Stay at The St. Regis Resort Bora Bora, where the overwater bungalows have direct lagoon access, plunge pools, and your own on-call butler. Hop on a beach cruiser and pedal down the boardwalk to have breakfast by the pool.

The beauty of Bora Bora: doing nothing all day long is what this place is about. Lounge by the pool, maybe amble over to the beach and grab a stand-up paddleboard, take a nap, grab some coconut water from the bar, repeat. If you find yourself wanting a little adventure it’s easily arranged, and almost always via boat. Spend the afternoon snorkeling with blacktip reef sharks, jet-skiing around neighboring motus (Bora Bora is the main island where the airport is, and all of its resorts are on surrounding motus, or islets), and sipping Hinano, Tahiti’s national beer on the bow of a speedboat.

If not the St Regis, then nestled between the breathtaking backdrop of Mount Otemanu and Motu To-opua’s mesmerizing lagoon, Conrad Bora Bora Nui is a private island escape that feels just as exclusive as you imagine it to be. Extravagant overwater villas, personalized butler service, an expansive infinity-edge pool, and restaurants that rival some of the finest in the world. Not to mention a full-service spa boasting tailored treatments like Tahitian massages, Polynesian body scrubs, and hydrating facials. The Conrad Bora Bora Nui, is a blissful and luxurious resort where relaxation and unparalleled views await you. Located on a private island - Motu To'opua, guests experience the longest private stretch of soft white sand beaches nestled between the soaring backdrop of Mount Otemanu and the mesmerizing lagoon.

The resort boasts a variety of accommodations, from the spacious Lagoon View Suites perfect for families, to the spectacular overwater villas and extravagant Presidential Villas. Dining options are in abundance and are sure to satisfy your culinary experience with five restaurants and bars. Enjoy Conrad Bora Bora Nui's blissful location and services while having every aspect of your stay taken care of.

There is an array of activities from hiking to swimming with sharks. For a truly unique experience, spend a day at the private islet Motu Tapu, enjoy a picnic prepared by the chefs, sip on champagne, and take in the serenity. Enjoy the golf simulator in the Swing suite, where you can master your swing in paradise; or choose between a variety of sport games to create unforgettable moments with your friends or family. Unwind and relax by the impressive infinity pool. Hina Spa, located on the hilltop, offers serenity and breathtaking views.

If you choose the Four Seasons Bora Bora, find your spacious hideaway from among 100 over-water bungalows and 7 beachfront villas. Nestling around the Bora Bora lagoon and its outer beaches, they overlook the lagoon and spectacular views of Mount Otemanu. Inspired by local architecture, all guest accommodations offer a restful, airy ambience – complete with traditional teak wood furnishings, high ceilings and thatched roofs. Relaxing in the shade of those thatched roofs, guests in the beach and pool areas can enjoy tropical cocktails, refreshing soft drinks and light snacks.

Chilled, aromatic towels and bottled water await as you arrive via private luxury boat. Located on its own island and surrounded by crystal-clear turquoise waters, it is a vision of South Seas perfection. Follow wooden walkways to your overwater bungalow suite, replete with teak furniture; some also feature a private plunge pool. Or opt for one of the seven beachfront villa estates, set on white sand. Distinctive touches include the fragrance of vanilla and the texture of black pearls in the spa, alfresco dining overlooking Bora-Bora’s famed lagoon, and signature Four Seasons service at every turn.

At InterContinental® Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa, you can step off the deck of your luxury over-water villa into the warm embrace of a tranquil lagoon. Enjoy everything from scuba diving to sunset cruises on the surrounding reefs, while a pristine beach and an award-winning spa invite you to relax. From weddings in the glass-bottomed chapel to candlelit dinners beneath swaying palm trees, it’s the perfect setting in which to experience the romance of the South Pacific.

The 43,000+ square-foot spa is the centerpiece of the resort and you can enjoy your massage on the beach or in the overwater massage bungalows. Dining is decadent, from barbecue buffets to fine French fare, and theme dinners to showcase traditional Polynesian food, song, and dance. The latest in-room technology keeps one connected.
