Visiting Bora Bora can help you find the best Bora Bora hotels for a once-in-a-lifetime trip. This remarkable volcanic island in French Polynesia is often rated as one of the most beautiful travel destinations in the world. The island is in the Pacific Ocean and surrounded by a lagoon and a barrier reef. The twin volcanic peaks, Mount Pahia and Mount Otemanu, dominate the island's center. Visitors can enjoy the unique accommodations in the town of Vaitape, in the Matira district or on the surrounding Motus.


Vaitape is the island's only town. It is located on the western side of the island, opposite the lagoon. It is the arrival point of the ferry from the airport. Visitors staying in Vaitape have access to everything Bora Bora has to offer, from swimming in the lagoon to scuba diving and snorkeling. Hiking and climbing trails make island exploration easy. From Vaitape, vacationers can also take private lagoon cruises and bus, jeep or helicopter tours. There are a number of dining options in the area for authentic Polynesian and French cuisine, including Blue Lagoon, Brasserie Manuia and Le Cocotier, all easily located in the town center around the lagoon. A high-end hotel option in this area is the Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa, featuring Bora Bora's famed villas that sit over the water. Rooms start at approximately $599 per night. Contact the hotel at 1-855-809-3510 for more information.


Matira is located at the southern tip of the island. It is the site of the island's largest beach, and many of the hotels and restaurants are in this area. Matira Beach offers the sunbathing activities and ocean sports that make the island a popular vacation destination. One unique activity that is popular in this particular area is kiteboarding. Dining options are also plentiful in the Matira area. Bounty Snack is an inexpensive Tahitian restaurant on the beach. La Villa Mahana is a small French restaurant with only five tables and is rated by some sources as the best French restaurant on the island. A reasonably priced hotel option, if you want to stay in an over-water bungalow, is the Maitai Polynesia Bora Bora. Accommodation rates start at approximately $290. Call the hotel at 1-866-599-6674 for details.

The Motus

The Motus, small islets that inhabit the lagoon around the main island of Bora Bora, are the site of many of the most famous hotels and resorts. These islets are accessible by boats that ferry people across the lagoon to the main island. The hotels and other structures on the Motus face toward the center of the main island, offering privacy and extraordinary views. Most of the dining on the Motus is provided by the hotel restaurants. These four-star restaurants are operated by some of the world's most famous chefs. The St. Regis Bora Bora, the Intercontinental Thalasso and the Four Seasons have highly rated restaurants. One hotel on the Motus that has an intimate environment is the Sofitel Motu Bora Bora. The hotel is known for its fantastic views and incredible snorkeling. Rates start at approximately $500 per night. Call the hotel at 1-866-599-6674 for more information.

Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort and Spa

Relax and enjoy!

Wow. Bucket list - check! We had an incredible and unforgettable experience in Bora Bora and so happy we stayed at the Pearl Beach Resort. What a wonderful group of people working here - they all were warm and welcoming and never hesitated to assist to making our stay memorable. We started with the "Coco Otemanu" spa treatment and were slipped into the most relaxing and enjoyable spa treatment that could be imagined. Vichy showers and a soak in Coconut milk w/Hibiscus flowers (really!). I was hesitant about the shark and sting rey encounter but my fears were quickly dismissed with our handsome guide who took us to exciting locations for swimming with sharks, sting reys, manna reys and snorkeling. I can now say "I swam with sharks". We also did a few other excursions - jet ski (so fun!) and 4 x 4 excursions (WWII canons). Guides are knowledgeable and friendly. Afternoons mostly spent on the beautiful white sand beaches in a hammock relaxing. Really cannot say enough how beautiful Bora Bora is and the Pearl Beach is perfectly set on its own Motu. I would definitely come back and I would only stay at the Pearl Beach.
