LIVING THE ISLAND LIFE
Bora Bora enjoys year-round warm weather, and is surrounded by one of the world's most beautiful lagoons. Local life is understandably focused on these pristine waters and the natural richness of the surrounding seas. Get into the pace of Polynesia by enjoying a leisurely cruise around the lagoon. Spend time at the beach enjoying our warm tropical sun, relaxing to the soft rustle of palms overhead as the breeze blows in off the lagoon. In the evenings, get a waterfront seat at sunset, and linger a while to do some stargazing when night falls. In your villa, let the views come to you, with a glass-bottomed table in your living room – a window to the colourful reef fish swimming below. Each morning, open up your curtains to the amazing colours of the island heralding another day in paradise.
Our talented, knowledgeable concierge is here to help make your stay unforgettable, crafting an itinerary packed with romance and adventure. An expert on leisure activities in the hotel and around the island, on hidden attractions and unexplored areas, our concierge can tell you about all the best cultural sites, the must-see artisanal boutiques, the most exciting sporting activities and more. In addition to leisure activities, our concierge is more than happy to organise a wide range of services, including doctor appointments, trips to the pharmacy, taxis, restaurants and even tattoo galleries.
Here’s our suggestion for the perfect day in Bora Bora:
Start the day with a lavish breakfast on the deck of your overwater bungalow. A cooked American breakfast, complete with fresh fruit and pastries will be delivered to you on a traditional va’a outrigger canoe decked in flowers. After a leisurely breakfast, take a private speedboat cruise around the lagoon. Stop at all the best snorkelling spots, swimming with turtles, rays and myriad tropical fish.
Dine with your feet in the water at your lavish table, set up in the shallows of a private beach. Enjoy a gourmet picnic of the freshest seafood, roast chicken and salads. In the afternoon, grab your chance to see the Pearl of the Pacific from the air with a helicopter tour, or as you parasail behind a boat. There are countless shades of blue between Bora Bora’s sea and sky, and this is one of your best opportunities to really appreciate the island’s beauty. Alternatively, visit the Deep Ocean Spa for a heavenly treatment. The spa uses mineral-rich water drawn from the depths of the Pacific Ocean; enjoy an invigorating scrub, a detoxifying wrap or a relaxing massage.
The perfect end to the day is a sunset cruise on a traditional outrigger canoe. Board one of these and you can sail out to sea and back again over a gorgeous reef. Back on land, enjoy a cocktail on the deck of your bungalow as the sun sinks behind the legendary Mount Otemanu. In the evening, savour a delicious dinner on the beach with your beloved.
