Nestled on a beautiful motu in the South Pacific is the Four Seasons Bora Bora. If you’re looking for an absolute paradise, look no further. This is the resort to visit and is the ultimate choice for romance and relaxation.
The overwater bungalow
Any room you stay in here will make your jaw hit the floor the moment you walk in. Even the “smallest” rooms are quite large and decorated beautifully. A smaller overwater bungalow is usually the least expensive available room, and if you’re here on a romantic trip, you should stay in one of these (for the ultimate luxurious experience, you can stay in an oversized bungalow with your own plunge pool).
The beach suites are larger and more ideal for larger parties, and would probably be better suited if you’re traveling with your family and you don’t want to worry about small children falling in the lagoon.
The room service menu is extensive and portions are generous. They have buffets and depending on when you go, you might have the opportunity to enjoy a themed meal. I was there on Thanksgiving day and they actually had a Thanksgiving buffet, which consisted of some of the holiday’s favorites (with a French Polynesian flair, of course). For an upscale, sit-down dinner, I visited the Arii Moana.
In addition to the tours that the resort provides, such as jet ski tours, the resort also offers a wide range of free activities.
You can paddleboard near the bungalows for a picturesque view of the mountain, or you can make your way over to the resort’s calm lagoon. This is also where you’ll do your snorkeling.
You can also visit the main island of Bora Bora through the daily complimentary ferry that the resort offers. Book an ATV tour, go shopping for black pearls, and have some lunch at a local eatery. This can also be a great way to spend the day if the weather isn’t cooperating.
There were several beach areas for guests around the property, including a tranquil beach areas near the lagoon. It was so peaceful and secluded over there. The resort also has an infinity pool with a view of the beach area, mountains, and overwater bungalows. It’s the perfect, refreshing place to cool off on a sunny day.
The property itself was mind blowing; not just the natural beauty surrounding the resort, but the grounds were so nicely kept and stunning. The service and hospitality was top-notch.
