We had the most incredible time on our honeymoon at Conrad Bora Bora Nui. Everything from the resort itself to the service to the food was amazing!! We stayed in an overwater bungalow facing west with a perfect view of the sunset. Everything in the villa was modern, clean and well taken care of. Our deck had two hammocks at the top, with steps down to a lower level with a hose to rinse off from swimming in the ocean. The most beautiful room we've ever stayed in! The staff at the Conrad was exceptional. People were friendly, attentive and we were so impressed with the many languages they all spoke (French, English, and Tahitian, at minimum). We enjoyed interacting with them throughout our stay. The food was delicious for every meal. Breakfast was included in our rate, so we had the choice of a buffet (range of food options from pastries and fruit to hot items like eggs and bacon) and/or a la carte menu each morning. There are a variety of lunch and dinner options. Our favorite meal was the sushi at Upa Upa restaurant, right on the water. Such fresh and delicious food. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and highly recommend it for anyone looking for an incredible place to stay!
TLDR Version: my wife and I stayed 4 nights in an overwater bungalow for our anniversary. For the most part, we LOVED our experience here. Pros: 1. The rooms. The overwater bungalow was well designed, looked beautiful (inside and out), and was spotlessly clean. 2. The resort itself: beautiful lobby/restaurant area, pool, beaches, and lookout point up the hill. It was very clean and maintained well. There was a brief rainshower the day we checked out, and the staff was cleaning up leaves/flowers on the ground immediately after the rain stopped. 3. Friendly staff: everyone always said hello (Le Ohana) to us and presumably every other guest. 4. The food (mostly): Any buffet we had was great. This includes the daily breakfast spread, the Tues night Polynesian dance show/buffet, and the Thurs night traditional Polynesian Ahi Maa. The lunch restaurant by the pool had good food too. The French restaurant was a mix of good (appetizers, dessert), and bland/mediocre (both of our fish entrees). 5. Unique experiences: especially the Polynesian dance show (like a Hawaiian luau but much more entertaining and less cheesy), and the Ahi Maa (traditional Polynesian cooking, very unique experience that you'll get no where else). 6. This is (mostly) a solid 5-star experience for half the price of the Four Seasons (currently being renovated) and 30% less than the St. Regis (apparently in need of renovation from my research) Cons: 1. Location is nice (you're still in a tropical paradise) but not as nice as most of the other resorts that look across the lagoon at Mt Otemanu. 2. The resort is quite spread out. From our room at the far end, it took a solid 10 minutes to walk to the lobby/pool area, and it would take 20 minutes to walk from the spa all the way to the far end of the bungalows. They do have bikes laying around, but they are in varying states of repair. For people with mobility issues (fortunately not us), you might spend a lot of time waiting on staff to transport you in golf carts. 3. It's expensive. But hey, you already knew that. It's not out of line with other similar resorts on Bora Bora (and for the room rates, it's actually a good deal compared to some) and... our biggest frustration (and the reason I can't give this place 5 stars): 4. Be careful about booking special meals. I booked a special private Tahitian barbecue dinner for my wife and I for our anniversary at the Otemanu lookout point. We paid roughly $600 for this. Although it did say that "we would be the chef" I assumed it would be similar to a Korean BBQ restaurant where this is not a labor-intensive process. Bad assumption. It turns out, we were provided with 20+ unseasoned skewers of raw beef, chicken, duck, various fish, shrimp, scallops, and various vegetables. We were also provided an electric grill, a few cups of random sauces, and one tiny lamp to see (it was pitch dark after a few minutes of sunset). No instruction was provided, not even how to use the grill. Fortunately, I have experience grilling, but basically I was completely preoccupied with cooking for the whole time. And the food was ok, but I could have done better getting stuff from the grocery store at home. We were also given a salad and dessert that were actually made in the kitchen for us, and a bottle of wine. We had the option of paying ~$200 more to have someone cook for us, but I never imagined this is what would happen. I know it's a fancy resort in Bora Bora, but it's pretty galling to charge $600 for this "experience", and I would urge the Conrad to rethink this. I really cannot imagine anyone enjoying or being satisfied with this for a special dinner for their honeymoon, birthday, or anniversary. If you're spending $600 for a 2 person meal, it should be 3 Michelin star, best-meal-of-your-life, every-bite-is-amazing quality. Overall Verdict: The Conrad was the nicest resort we've ever stayed at, and was a clear 5 star other than the glaring issue with our anniversary dinner.
We just got back from an incredible six night trip to Bora Bora and experienced the most amazing vacation. It is hard to find words that can capture the beauty and tranquility of the island and the property. We had overwater villa 101 and loved it. Our room was right over a coral reef and it was a consistent exhibit of sea life, from sting rays, to parrot fish and everything in between. Our days started with sunrise over Mount Otemanu coming into our room to welcome us to the day. Then it was to Iriatai French Restaurant for the most amazing breakfast...the pineapple porridge, the eggs Benedict, the crepes...all of it a feast for the senses!!! The property was almost fully occupied but you rarely saw many people. The layout of the bungalows really made the property feel like a private island...there were always paddle boards/kayaks available or great places by the pool or on the beach. The choice is yours! We did a jet ski tour one day and saw the other properties around Bora Bora and were able to see how the Conrad is different and much more secluded and intimate! We spent two days at the spa and were treated like royalty. The view from the spa alone is out of this world. We ate at the other restaurants and enjoyed them all. We did room service and dined on our deck one day and ordered room service from the Chinese restaurant one night to get the Kung pao chicken and spring rolls a second time! The bikes were great and it became part of our routine to find a good one (suggestion-always find one with a basket)! They made getting around the property a breeze and an adventure in and of itself! The concierge was great and helped us book our shark and ray trip, as well as a visit to Vaitape (recommendation-do not go when a cruise ship is there). We never had any of the problems others have noted here. It is not inexpensive but this is Bora Bora, a trip of a lifetime and well worth it! The bikes are weathered from being by the ocean, but that is part of the experience. Service was great and everyone catered to your every need. We hope to return here someday soon! Until then we have incredible memories!!!
Beautiful, amazing & beyond- words cannot describe the magic bora-Bora.- We stayed in an overwater bungalow and this experience alone above and beyond. The food was fabulous & the grounds were amazing and that being said I was a little disappointed in the astronomical cost of food and drinks. The smallest tiniest Mamosa in the morning with breakfast was a whopping $30 (I could barely even taste the champagne ) and a burger alone was $35- you can kind of get the picture. Spending 1000 + a night and then having the food/beverages be so much money was a bit much in my opinion- also water is not free. If you are somebody who has money to burn then you might not notice but That is not my case! The last couple of things are the bikes are in major need of repair and our cleaning Service did not show up for one full day and then the next day did not come for bed turn down service. Overall I am glad that I got to experience this and swimming with sharks and stingrays is a must!!!
I would say first, well ok, it is expensive, very expensive I would say, but honestly it definitely worth the money! - the most beautiful villa we had during our trip in Polynesia, the sense of the detail, the furnitures are beautiful, the view was incredible especially with the huge bay window... everything is chosen with taste, it smells good, the bathroom was incredible, the deck outside is well maintained (contrary to other hotels were we went) - the food is very good, especially the breakfast, just the best one we had during our holidays. We loved the Chinese restaurant as well - at least one hotel where you can taste good cocktails!!!! - the staff is amazingly nice and professional (except sometimes the front desk who was nice but forgot our request several times...) - the boat they come with to pick up clients at the airport is amazing - the spa was incredible - they were professional and nice and respected what we asked them by email before arriving in the hotel and believe me this was not the case in most of the hotel we did during our trip... - the housekeeping do an amazing job, it is very clean, well maintained and they are so nice!!! - tabatha in the activity desk was really professional and really helpful as wellThe only cons in my opinion was that the hotel is not located in the most beautiful spot of the island, we saw other hotel that had a location in places that seem to be on a better part of the lagoon. The localisation is still good though and the view you have on your deck is breathtaking All in all, this hotel is just amazing, ok it is expensive, but it is totally worth It and we really enjoyed each second we spent in it! A big congrats to the management who trained well the staff and cast them very well, and a big thank for this amazing experience
We went there for our honeymoon. The hotel and place is unique. Amazing everywhere. Overwater villas are fantastic, cosy, modern and beautifull all at the same time. Although accomodation is 10 points, service is not at the same level. Staff is really gentle and kind but not efficient. Every activity or restaurant they have are always booked and we faced scarcity in same offers of the menu in each restaurant they have (specially rare considering their prices). Slow reposition in breakfast and in general everything takes too much time when asked to personnel. Conclusion, beutifull hotel with service not in line with the price you pay!
This resort was everything and more!! I came here for my 42nd Birthday and they had champagne truffles and fresh fruit in my room when I arrived!! I stayed at the room with the pool and it was well worth it!!! So many things to do !! And we snorkeled with SHARKS !! It was phenomenal!!!
The Conrad Bora Bora Nui is what dreams are made of. I have had Bora Bora on my bucket list forever and the Conrad exceeded all of my expectations and more. The staff was so very friendly at every interaction we had. We especially loved the waitress, Eva, at the Tamure Beach Grill. Speaking of food, the breakfast spread was amazing. There were so many options it was overwhelming but in a good way. I’ve never had so many bread options but got to try so many different things as well. We took advantage of the complimentary activities that were offered such as snorkeling, kayaking, bicycling, and mini-golf. I would highly recommend taking a walk up the hill near the Spa to the look out area, the views are unbelievable up there. Part of my dream was to stay in an over-the-water hut and it was more than I could have imagined. The furnishings were beautiful, there were two sinks in the bathroom even! The bed was the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in at a hotel. Waking up to see the beautiful ocean every morning was phenomenal. I can’t say enough about the Conrad!!
If you are looking for a great honeymoon experience, Conrad is the place. They have a great breakfast buffet, excelent service and staff, the coral is great with a lot of biodiversity. Everything and everywhere in Tahiti is expensive, so go with that mindset.
Spent four wonderful evenings at the property. It was our honeymoon (second time for both of us..in our late 50's) and the facility did not disappoint. Room...view...service...food....everything was top notch. Getting to the main island was not an issue. We did the helmet dive, jet ski tour and rented a scooter in Bora Bora. Very cool visit!
