Set alongside Matira Beach, Village Temanuata offers traditional Polynesian-style bungalows offering direct beach access. Guests can relax on the sun loungers or indulge in a massage. Value for money for a single backpacker (even better for a couple)

This exclusive island offers accommodation set over lovely blue lagoon waters or alongside the white sandy beaches. Everything: - the wellcoming at the airport - the coconut drink & wellcome song at the pier - the room (we've booked an over-the-water bungalow) - the staff - the facilities - the breakfast - the activities - the messages on the bed from the hotel - the daily free refill of the minibar - the gifts upon arrival: a T-shirt and a scarf) ... and of course - the place, the water, the island
Overlooking the magnificent turquoise waters of a private beach, Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora boasts luxurious over-water bungalows and beachfront villas with views of Mount Otemanu. I have never seen such a service anywhere else. They basically don't say "no" for anything that you need. Whatever it is, they will find a way to provide. The staff is perfectly trained to make you feel comfortable and cared all time. The room is amazing and we did used the pool in the room a lot! With the greatest view to Otemanu Mountain, you don't wanna leave the room!! The food at Ari Moana restaurant is espetacular as well as breakfast and in room dinning. All the activities we booked were worth it (jet ski, parasailing, diving and saling) and the resort offers a lot of enjoyable options too such as snorkeling, paddlesurf and aquatic bike - super cool! The whole experience is worth it every penny and full of details that makes it the best place in the world.
Featuring a private white sand beach which is exclusive to guests, this luxury resort offers beachfront accommodation on Matira Point. Guests can stay in unique bungalows positioned over the water. Bora Bora is an incredible destination, and this is a fantastic resort to explore from. Located on the main island, this hotel provides the opportunity for easy access to the island sights, with several restaurants and shops within walking distance. There's also a paid hotel shuttle to the main town daily, and access to other resorts on motus via boat. It's an expensive destination in terms of food and drink but the hotel is relatively reasonable; water, soft drinks and alcoholic beverages can be purchased from a nearby superette (snacks too), so you can manage your budget a bit better. Food at the restaurant was lovely (we mainly ate off the bar menu; all portions were large and easily shared). Overwater bungalow was fantastic - we loved the coral under our glass coffee table, and the opportunity to feed the reef fish from here (eco-friendly fish food). Although there's not that much coral right at the resort (which they're working on - and there is still plenty of aquatic life to view), there are coral gardens an easy kayak away. Highly recommend a day excursion or two - we had a fantastic time on a day trip with a local group; highly entertaining and some awesome experiences (snorkelling with reef sharks, stingrays and a manta ray!!). Some local restaurants offer free shuttles for dinner, so another great way to explore the island a little. The hotel staff were incredibly friendly and helpful; overall a dream holiday in a stunning destination!!
Located on an unspoilt tropical beach with no road access, Le Méridien offers views across Bora Bora Lagoon to Mount Otemanu. It was an excellent location with stunning views
Exclusively located in a private cove on Motu To’opua, Conrad Bora Bora Nui enjoys vast blue ocean views and a white sand beach. A high class resort located in a touch of paradise. Fantastic place to relax and unwind for a few days...
Guests at this luxury resort can choose between garden suites with private pool, beachfront suites with a private hot tub, or overwater bungalows with direct access to the turquoise waters below. Probably the best value for money in Bora Bora. The overwater bungalow is large and confortable, with everything you need. Loved the wood panels, with polynesian carvings. Would stay there again without hesitating.
Lokai house is set in Bora Bora and has a garden and a terrace. Guests can enjoy garden views. All guest rooms at the guest house come with a seating area. We loved everything. The owners are amazing and super friendly. We went to bora bora for our honeymoon and they offered us some little gifts and champagne on our arrival!! They gave us great advices and offered us to book for us if we need any excursions. It was really easy to exchange with them before and during our stay The house was spotless and really easy to access from the city. The neighbourhood is quite and the appartement well decorated. Everything you need is in the appartement. Supermarket is super close (5mn scooter ride) 10mn from the beach matira 5 Bloody Mary. Merci encore pour ce séjour :)
Set in Bora Bora, Bora-Bora Bungalow and Bora-Bora House offers accommodation with a terrace and kitchen. The property is 5 minutes' from Matira Beach and 5 minutes' from the city centre. Everything, place was amazing! An unforgettable experience
There are 58 hotels on Bora Bora you can book on Booking.com.
On average, 3-star hotels on Bora Bora cost £188 per night, and 4-star hotels on Bora Bora are £552 per night. If you're looking for something really special, a 5-star hotel on Bora Bora can on average be found for £993 per night (based on Booking.com prices).
Vaitape itself is just a small village with loads of tourist shops and not much else. It's also where the cruise ships anchor so if you're there when a ship is in it becomes a lot busier. Worth a visit to see the place but 2 hours is more than adequate. The places to stay in Bora Bora are, of course, the resort hotels which are dotted around the island either on the island itself or, in many cases, on private islands in the lagoon. This is where you will be able to relax and/or take part in various lagoon based activities and excursions.
Vaitape is not geared towards tourists. We weren't able to even buy coconuts in Vaitape - there are not many transport options to go around the island. The tourist information office is only open during certain hours (from 09:00am, I recall) and then the staff on the tourist information desk were not really able to speak English. Most of the shops are black pearl shops and there are not enough tourist activities - we were looking to give somebody our money for any tourist activities. Other locations in Bora Bora are amazing - Mitira beach; Coral gardens by the Sofitel private island; the lookout on the other side of the island. We were so keen to see some turtles while in Bora Bora, it seemed to only be offered by Le Meridian.
We had a great wedding and honeymoon in Bora Bora with amazing views, photos, memories that we would not trade for anything else. I would get married here again, and come back every time we can.
Whether you are on one of the motus surrounding Bora Bora or on the main island, lack of nearby house reefs for good snorkelling with coral gardens and plenty of fish. A big disappointment for someone used to the Maldives. Otherwise, this is one of the paradises on earth.
I'd say Bora Bora is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Really. It is in good proportion and perfect with its size, form and its surroundings of the lagoon, the reef and the colours. It is an island with the sands so white and it reflects so many different shades of blue of the water in the lagoon. Matira beach is really a beautiful spot in Bora Bora. The sand is so white and the water is dazzling turquoise blue; a short boat ride to the outer reef. It is well serviced with a few rental agencies of cars, boats and scooters. Supermarkets, bars and restaurants are also there. Besides self catering we enjoyed a buffet dinner and entertainment at the Intercontinental Hotel. We spent a day, actually 7 hours, longer than we expected, driving a little boat in the lagoon around the island, taking in its beauty, for our own record that we really saw Bora Bora from air, by land and by sea. And all is beautiful !
Bien que Bora Bora en fasse rêver plusieurs, seul son lagon vaut la peine. Ne séjournez pas plus de 2 jours (excluant le jour d'arrivée et du départ). Nous ne conseillons à personne de faire le tour de l'île (32 km) à vélo car des chiens de type pitbull vous courent après. Il semble que le trop grand nombre de ces chiens soit un véritable problème à Bora Bora (et ceci, nous a été confirmé par les habitants des îles voisines après notre séjour à Bora Bora). Aussi, la majeure partie de l'île rappelle drôlement certains endroits pauvres tels qu'à Cuba, au Mexique et en République dominicaine. Et avec ces prix exhorbitants, on se demande comment les habitants font pour vivre. Bora Bora nous a grandement déçue!
There are many different ways to experience Bora Bora, and all are great. Personally, I prefer staying on the island to experience more of local life because a resort experience - apart from the view - tends to be the same the world over.
Staying with real people , effectively in their home although in every way separate. The people generally and the vibrant scenery- water , reefs and mountains However Bora Bora was the least interesting of the 4 Islands we stayed on ; in order of preference Huahine, Tahiti/Moorea and Bora bora. The overdevelopment in separate enclaves of 5&6 Star overwater resorts on the Motu are sucking the life- commercial and social out of Bora Bora. This is especially so for Vaitape which just exists.
Very beautiful! A boat tour around the island is a must, as you want to see the lagoon with the marine life in it. I would also recommend a day of cycling or scootering around the main island, as it only takes 2-3 hours to cycle the whole island. Staying in one of the resorts is a great option for Bora Bora, as you would want to experience that luxurious style on this island, but make sure you don't spend all your time in the resort. Take time to head to Vaitape, the main town to eat the street food, buy some fresh fruits and souvenirs. And if you're lucky enough to be there during festival seasons during June/July, do go and check out the performances there too!
Bora bora is the real paradise amazing the matira beach is the only public beach bit is really nice, great the lagoon trip swim with sharks and manta I never see a cristal clear water, the local people are amazing and very welcoming and the nature of bora bora is stunning I raccomanded all traveller to come here once in the life is a real paradise

Wendy and Beatrice were so helpful! They arranged a taxi for us and made sure we got right into our unit. We had a partial lagoon view since it’s up on a hill. It was safe, quiet, and the unit was so well taken care of. We loved having a kitchen, too! We definitely recommend getting a scooter (or car) so that you are able to drive down to the beach, as the unit is up on a pretty big hill and the walk to Matira Beach is a little far. We absolutely loved our stay here and we hope to stay again someday if we make it back to Bora Bora!

The hotel is located at one of the best beaches at Bora Bora, the sand is white and the water a beautiful blue. The view of Mt Otemanu is breathtaking. We were a group of five and we stayed in one bedroom villa and overwater bungalow. Both accommodations were excellent. All staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. Special thinks to the beach crew Jay, Ken and Tehei, who were always cheerful when helping us with the canoe, paddle board and catamaran use. They even gave us some hints how to use the Polynesian pirogue.

Nir is a fantastic host always taking car fo his guests. He is always available if you have any questions or you need help. He did my laundry without asking him. The bungalow was beautiful with a great view to the Ocean and with many tiny lovely details. Nir reserved my snorkeling tour, he made dinner reservation for me and he gave me a ride personally to the transfer ship to the airport. I strongly recommend this hotel and I will come again when I visit Bora Bora in the future. I came as a guest and I left as a friend.

Amazing hosts!!! Picked us up at the airport - arranged a car - brought us back to the airport. Affordable Paradies - if you’re going to Bora Bora and don’t need a 5 Star Hotel - this is the right place to go! From Bed into the water - we had a great stay but only for two nights! Thank you sooooo much - for the nice welcome - we will never forget these two days - it was amazing!

Outstanding hotel! Very comfortable and to be honest, the best view and place where the bungalows stay in whole Bora Bora!! All bungalows stay under a shallow level of water so you can jump on it and walk in for a long distance! On the other hotels, some of the bungalows are under deep water so you cannot stand on it. Staff is amazing specially Julia! ( the manager)

Good location, 20min walk from the beach. Very stylish space (art!), nice air conditioning and kitchen facilities. Friendly hosts and lovely vibe. They rent out bicycles (2500xpf per 24h per person) and we did a circle arount the whole Bora Bora island. Make sure to enjoy a drink and the sunset on the top balcony, it's amazing!

The house is the perfect place to enjoy Bora Bora with the very kind service of her owner (Sandra) who is always pending of everything, we felt ot home there. The bikes are very practice to go anywhere. There´s a small market next to the house. The house has view to the Otemanu. Full service house! We loved that place!

This is a wonderful option for staying on gorgeous Bora Bora. The staff are superb, the rooms clean and spacious, it has its own private beach, it is close to the best beach on the island and they can help book/arrange activities. For the price, this is a great option and we would recommend it plus stay again.

Our family of 4 had a wonderful stay at Sunset Hill Lodge. Our host was very kind and informative. The apartment was enormous, and the balcony overlooking the bay at Vaitape was a perfect vantage point from which to enjoy Bora Bora's magical sunsets. This is a very affordable option for budget travellers.

The amazing welcome we had from the owners. It is rare that we get such a welcome and friendliness from owners at an accommodation to the point that we both felt sad leaving on Jan 18th! The accommodation is in a location that lets you explore Bora Bora like a local and get the full experience!

I liked the location of the lodge. Its very handy to the yacht club and marina and Dive Operator. It was clean and the room was spacious and quite private. Very good value for Money unlike most of Bora Bora. I would stay there again in preference to other hotels like the Sofitel Marara.

Great location, one of the world's most beautiful beaches is right on the doorstep. A few shops/restaurants are within 20 minutes walking distance. Reasonably priced option for those who wish to discover stunning Bora Bora without spending a fortune.

Location was nice and got an upgrade to beachfront. Slag isnt so much on the hotel necessarily, the price is inline for Bora Bora, but that doesn't make it a good deal. The facilities are tired and food is very limited. Breakfast is not worth the price!

OMG - Villa Ahuna is amazing. We loved the feeling of being on our own piece of paradise in the most beautiful Bora Bora lagoon. The views of the mountains were lovely and the colours of the lagoon were views we never tired of. We found some excellent snorkelling spots off the beach and around the corner a bit. The sleeping bungalows were beautiful and we love the eclectic decor and styling of the open are living/kitchen bungalow. The hammock and day beds were perfect places to relax. We easily filled our five days on the island and only used the tinny on short short trips. We did one big grocery shop before arriving on the island and had plenty of food. The caretaker, Joel showed us how to husk coconuts, grate the flesh and make our own fresh coconut milk - a real highlight of the stay. We made the most delicious coconut rice puddings for our breakfast! We also loved the huge bunch of bananas strung up near the kitchen - great for snacks. Good wifi as well which kept our teenage children in touch with the world the and up to date with social media. The vibe was wonderful and I could have easily stayed much longer - I loved island life. Tea was most helpful all the way from the initial booking and answering lots of questions to helping us with questions once we were on the island. As we only speak English it was bit hard to communicate with Joel who spoke French. But it was fun trying! Tea recommended a more personal, private lagoon tour with Marona, a local fisherman. He has a wonderful outrigger with a big shade canopy and we enjoyed the most excellent day on the Bora Bora lagoon seeing all the sights. Marona even found two manta rays for us to swim with! and surprised us with a delicious snack on a floating table in the water of tropical fruits and his homemade coconut cake - yummy! I would come back to Villa Ahuna in a heart beat. Exactly the type of holiday I love - days filled with swimming, snorkelling, simple food and no other people but our family.
