Four Seasons Bora Bora is a beautiful hotel with gorgeous overwater bungalows and fantastic staff. When considering booking the perfect Bora Bora hotel, there are many things to consider and this hotel is beyond fabulous in every regard. 1. OWB. Elegantly decorated, spacious with high ceilings, directly over turquoise water, and overlooking the mountain, Four Seasons Bora Bora has everything you’d want in an OWB. Other key features: central AC control in each individual room (cools silently and efficiently), beautiful sliding doors between rooms, and multiple glass floor areas throughout the bathroom. Private balcony. 2. Service. Top notch and best experience we’ve had. Marine was the best host, she catered to every possible need and made us feel like family. She deserves recognition for her excellent and professional service, hospitality, and going above and beyond in every way. 3. Pool, Beach, Water Activities. We went right before Easter, so it was quiet, serene, and we had access to everything. Greatest part is access to all water activities. Snorkels, water shoes, paddle boards are all available. 4. Attention to Detail. Every element was thought about. We received coconut waters in our room on arrival because the staff (Marine) knew we did not drink alcohol. We were whisked away to our room even though we arrived so early after having 20+ hour flight. Again, Marine checked in with us frequently to make sure we were having a wonderful stay. She was absolutely phenomenal and really contributed to us having a great trip and made it feel like paradise. 5. Food. Breakfast was fantastic, tons of options, all delicious. Since you pretty much eat all meals on property, I would say this was my favorite meal. Dinners were not as great and were pricy, but it was satisfying... they do have have to bring everything here and you can see how remote it is to do that. We had friends that stayed at the neighboring St Regis and I can say that our trips were nearly identical, but perhaps our food was a bit better. We also had a better view.
First Class place to stay. We booked it because of our previous experience with Four Season resorts ,but the personnel at the facility made our stay the best experience we have had staying at a destination Vacation spot. The facility was very clean, modern but appropriately decorated and the staff was second to none . The local Polynesian people were as Sweet and Nice as they come and made us feel very welcome, at all times. Extremely professional staff.
This place is simply amazing. One of the best places I have ever stayed. Do yourself a favour and just book! Room Spacious over water bungalow with everything set out perfectly and very private. Really quiet except the wind and lapping water, nice and dark and comfortable bed. The only slight issue was the poor shower pressure. Property Absolutely beautiful. The gardens are perfectly manicured, the lagoon is simply stunning and it is just a please to walk around. Activities Do the jet skis. Do the shark and ray tour. You will not regret either. The gym and day spa are out of this world. We have just come from the Brando and the FS gym and day spa is far superior. Amazing view from the gym, the two jacuzzi options are epic and the treatments fantastic. We also played tennis, beach volleyball and table tennis. Great given we have kids. Kids club was basic but decent activities. Generally our kids were the only ones in there. Wouldn’t make my top 10 kids clubs. The water park outside kids club is no longer. Food Extremely expensive food. This is by far the biggest issue you will find. It’s insulting to pay 4500 XPF for a burger. A birthday cake cost 10,000XPF! Nice variety of restaurants though and quality was ok. Breakfast was really good, lots of choice and lovely setting. They did miss the little things like cracked pepper and decent coffee. Loved the coconut drinks, waffles and pancakes. Beach/Pool The pool is exceptional. A place you literally can spend all day at. Has atmosphere but isn’t busy. Great jacuzzi. Lots of seating options. Amazing view over the lagoon. Also well sheltered from the constant strong wind (unlike the Brando pool which was unusable in the wind). The beach looks good but isn’t really that usable. Lots of sharp coral and surprisingly not great visibility. We swam far more in the pool and also jumping off the villa into the water. The snorkeling in the lagoon was fun but nothing amazing. Could see as much from the land as the water. Places like Fiji with house reefs far better. Loved running along the ocean path as well. Spectacular. Service Typical FS service. Personable, attentive, friendly and would remember your preferences at breakfast. Check in easy, the airport greeting fantastic and room service always delivered quickly. The guys running the sports/beach activity were awesome. Concierge good in person, pretty hopeless on the ap. Summary A relatively large resort that still felt personable. Sensational activities, amazing day spa/gym, great pool and in one of the best locations in the world make this an absolute favourite.
We are on the final day of our stay at Four Seasons Bora Bora (our second time here). This place is just incredible from the moment you arrive (getting on the plush Four Seasons boat at the airport you can just feel the envy from other tourists!) to the moment you leave - in our case a late checkout of 5pm so we can fully enjoy our last day of holiday. Our favourite restaurant is Fare Hoa, lunch is amazing. Our compliments to Felix and Rudolphe who were amazing hosts and were very accommodating with our attempts to speak French. Maururu Felix and Rudolphe! We loved happy hour (4pm-5pm daily) and the mahi-mahi ceviche (incredible!) We stayed in a overwater bungalow with a perfect view of Mount Otemanu. Rooms are absolutely stunning, beautiful linen only complaint is the toiletries are so watered down they are practically useless (shampoo etc). Good though that they are not doing Little plastic bottles but refillable containers. We did the Polynesian show - fantastic. On a previous trip we did the snorkelling and shark swimming excursion which was absolutely fabulous (can be booked with the concierge). One of the best things is the Four Seasons app which we used for all requests while in the resort - everything from booking tennis courts to changing dinner bookings to asking for fresh milk in our fridge. They responded within seconds and nothing was an issue. A massive differentiator to any resort we have ever stayed in. One last thing - the gym is incredible, brand new technogym machines and impeccably maintained. We are very very fussy but can’t fault this place. It’s divine and we will absolutely be back.
Wonderful week spent at this resort . Overwater bungalow upgrade a real highlight. Food was great .Overwater massage was great , helicopter a highlight , snorkeling, standup paddleboard all fun. All staff excellent.
Stayed there for four nights and I really have to say that this was by far the best (and also most expensive) hotel we stayed in during our honeymoon. Amazing hotel grounds, beaufitul "room" (except for the shower and toilet) and very friendly and helpful staff - it just doesn't get any better. We even got a room-upgrade, which we appreciated a lot (having your own infinity pool on the porch has it's perks). Even if you book one of the "stay four nights, pay three" specials, the prices are still horrendous. All in all the best hotel I have stayed in up until now (and I have travelled quite a bit).
Incredible location, great food, impeccable service, wonderful suite. Simply a great vacation. The resort landscaping was beautiful and very diverse. Looking across the lagoon there was a mountain of rock that dominated the scenery, and it even played a part in the gorgeous sunsets.
Bungalows, food and service were top notch The ladies at the children’s center made us the best palm hats. The spa staff were super accommodating and the resort was well kept. Favorite restaurant was Sunset Bar
Awesome stay, incredibly beautiful. Everyone was very helpful and professional. The room was very nice and the service was excellent. Highly recommend staying here for couples. Very much loved the lagoon.
This resort is spectacular. We were lucky enough to have an overwater bungalow suite with a plunge pool and spacious deck facing a small island. The accommodations included a living area, a large bath and separate shower, an area with two sinks, two large closets, drawers, TVs (not that we watching any while there), a dining area on the deck, four deck chairs, a small table with chairs at one end, and, of course, the fabulous plunge pool. Snorkeling was possible off the deck. Fins and mask and snorkel included. The resort is lovely: beautifully landscaped and lagoons for snorkeling, swimming, or just sunbathing. There was a nice bar/restaurant called the Sunset Restaurant and Bar for obvious reasons. It had a beautiful view of the setting sun with the volcano as a backdrop. The scenery just couldn't be beat. Photos will attest to that. The food is good, but very expensive at the resort. You can take a water taxi from the resort into town for about $12.50 US (each person, each way). Restaurants are less expensive there. Very relaxing vacation. Well worth the trip.
