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.

Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island

Perfect, romantic, and quiet honeymoon stay

Right when we arrived we were greeted with magazine worthy views, coconut water, and Tahitian singers. We were shown around by one of the sweetest and most hospitable girls I have ever met. The class and luxury the Sofitel exudes exceeded my expectations. There was something truly magical about being here. Now I have read some reviews saying that it's a bit run down. And I can honestly say I have no clue what they are talking about. The Sofitel private island offers an authentic and rustic feels while still very luxurious and high end. I stayed in room 127 which I think is the best one for diving from your patio and privacy. All of the overwater bungalows are magical and are worth the extra money, DO IT. The turn down service was very professional and quick. The beds, omg the BEDS! They were like a cloud! I cried a little upon our departure. This place will always forever hold a special place in my heart.

Le Taha'a Island Resort & Spa

Le Taha = Paradise

We love French Polynesia, We've also been to Tikehau Pearl and Bora Bora St Regis. Le Taha staff is the absolute best we've encountered anywhere. Friendly helpful and accommodating people that genuinely care about their guests and their experience. Just to give some examples.. we were all at the bar, and a couple was there wife sitting the husband standing because no place to sit, nobody asked for a chair but the bartender went to get the guy a seat.. that was so nice. we were in the lobby and walking through.. there was a little drizzle, the staff offers us a poncho so we didn't get wet. how sweet are they. everything I asked for, they tried to make it happen.. whatever special food requests, things in our room nobody else had, they never say no. they were beyond our expectation. very nice. We stayed for 3 weeks and loved it.. some constructive criticism. 1. WiFi only exists in the lobby and restaurants. they need to bring that too the rooms. The Vini hotspots are inconsistent and slow. 2. Food could be majorly improved. St Regis was more variety and better quality. 3. The overall look and feel could use a little updating. This place was built in 2002... adding flowers making the walkways nicer, cobblestone, the bridges have screws missing, stuff like that.. not a deal breaker for us. we will be back. but to attract new visitors I'd definitely work on it. All in all we love it and we would come back. the service was 5 stars.

Oa Oa Lodge

Close to many shops, over beautiful blue ocean

I cannot say enough good things about the Oa Lodge. They have an Infiniti pool that overlooks the amazing ocean and you can swim in in the sea around the entire hotel. You can book a partial over water bungalow and jump into the ocean from the balcony. That's what we did and it was way cool. Not only are the rooms, restaurant on site, and pool awesome the staff alone gets 10 out of 10 stars. I was injured in Moorea and I could barely walk cause I messed my knee up pretty bad, and the staff was super accommodating. They drove us into town so we didn't have to walk, and ran us to the pharmacy and to get food whenever we needed to keep me off my leg!! Just pure amazing. Stay here. You won't regret it.
