Combine a paradise location of small sandy islets and brilliant-blue ocean with a revered hotel brand, add in overwater cabins and beachfront villas, a clutch of gourmet restaurants and private dining island for two (that’s only accessed by canoe), and the result is Four Seasons Bora Bora.
In true Four Seasons style, they have gone over and above with their luxury French Polynesian island hotel, fusing all of the artistic interior design and subtle cultural touches that you would hope for, with abundant outdoor activities, watersports and facilities, luxury villas and plenty of fun for all the family.
Indeed Four Seasons Bora Bora is one of the most family-friendly five-star French Polynesia resorts around with its first-rate kids' club, playground, games room, splash area and lots of themed classes such as dance, tennis, arts and crafts, plus kayak and paddle-board lessons for teens. Yet for couples on a romantic South Pacific escape, the Four Seasons Bora Bora excels there too. This is thanks to not only their irresistible beachfront and overwater cabins (some with a private pool), but also the spread of superb gourmet restaurants and bars on offer, a truly heavenly spa area, cosy cabanas by the pool, sunset cruises and a private island reached only by canoe, perfect for a candlelit dinner for two under the stars.
Overall, the Four Seasons Bora Bora Resort simply hits all of the high notes from start to finish. The semi-traditional design of both the casitas and thatched communal areas here adds a real sense of place, while the five-star facilities, levels of luxury and standard of fine dining cuisine are also second to none.
What’s more, with family-friendly activities dotted around the manicured grounds plus plenty for couples to get excited about, hidden spots, a gorgeous setting backed by lush mountains and looking out to sea, there is something at Four Seasons Bora Bora to suit just about every type of traveller.
The overwater villas and beachfront estates at Four Seasons Bora Bora Resort are among the best – and most stylish – accommodation options in French Polynesia, each with a perfectly executed interior design that blends authentic artworks of the region and traditional materials with five-star in-room extras and top levels of comfort. A furnished terrace, king-size bed and lovely living room come as standard in all categories thanks to a minimum floorplan of 1,080sq ft, though the superior bungalows and estates go up to 5,380sq ft in size. Certain options then come with a private pool too and multiple bedrooms, making them great for families, though with a mix of either beach or sea views and all the essential mod-cons and amenities – such as complimentary snorkelling gear – always included, you simply can’t go wrong at Four Seasons Bora Bora no matter which room you choose.
A beautiful blend of traditional Polynesian and French cuisine is conjured up at Arii Moana, a sea-view Four Seasons restaurant whose food is as elegantly designed as the space itself.
For something a little more laidback, head to beachfront Fare Hoa Beach Bar and Grill for drinks, live music and lighter bites throughout the day.
Enjoy your fresh daily breakfasts on the terrace of Tere Nui, a wonderful place to start each morning.
As the name suggests, this is a super spot for sunset drinks by the beach, as well as their offering of Asian food and sushi – to be enjoyed on the overwater terrace.
