The Le Meridien Bora Bora is one of those very rare places where the location itself might just outshine the five-star resort situated there. Located inside a private lagoon, the hotel is less than an hour’s flight from Papeete’s Fa’a International Airport. In an iconic holiday destination such as Bora Bora, you’ll be rewarded by sights of powdery white sand beaches, tiny islets surrounded by pale blue waters and thatched overwater bungalows. The towering Mount Otemanu provides an awe-inspiring sight mornings and evenings; while the lagoon waters are perpetually warm to splash around any time. A holiday in Bora Bora is one of the rare moments where living in nature’s bounty is simply amazing, and the Le Méridien Bora Bora indulges its guests to the hilt.
The hotel offers its guests six different categories of bungalows when it comes to accommodation. Renovated and refurbished in 2011, each of the units are a tasteful fusion of traditional Polynesian architecture and modern amenities. All of the bungalows feature king-size beds, air-conditioning, balconies/patios overlooking some of the most beautiful views on Earth, spacious bathrooms with premium bath amenities, free WiFi and a host of other facilities. The signature overwater bungalows are a class apart compared to other examples available around the world, their transparent glass floors providing a permanent showcase of Tahiti’s beauty.
Outside the luxurious bungalows is a whole list of activities, entertainment and experiences designed to while away days and weeks happily. From hiking Mount Otemanu and diving charters to kayaking the calm waters of the lagoon, there is something for everybody. Children and adults alike should visit the Ecological Center, where there is a turtle conservatory. Watching volunteers take care of these gentle creatures is a delight and an experience in itself. To help guests relax and unwind, the hotel also has a state-of-the-art spa centre.
The hotel has an array of choice as well as quality when it comes to wining and dining for the international traveller. Le TIpanié, the main restaurant, serves gourmet cuisine with a Polynesian island twist – we’d recommend the chef’s specials. For casual island dinners and lunches, head over to the beach for Te Ava – a great view of the sea, cool breezes and feet on sand lend a tropical, easy-going feeling to every meal. The hotel’s Hapaina Wine & Tapas Bar features over 100 wines and an equal complement of cocktails to woo guests; the bar’s backdrop of the lagoon waters also provides the perfect evening backdrop. Of course, the Miki Miki bar and the pool bar also serve as refreshing alternatives.
The Le Méridien Bora Bora is a hotel where nature and luxury coexist in a happy setting. For families, it is a place to unwind and reconnect; for couples, there is no better place to stoke the flames.
