The 4 Best Hotels in Bora Bora

1. InterContinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort

The overwater bungalows at InterContinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort offer good privacy.
Hotel phone: (689) 40 604 900
Opulent facilities, with an idyllic setting facing bleached-white sand and backed by mountains. Romantic bungalows are traditionally designed, but modern inside, and those perched above the water provide steps to the sapphire lagoon below. Double-layered pool and numerous activities (some free) add to the appeal. And it’s very convenient, so guests won’t feel as stranded as others may at resorts on distant atolls.

2. Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort

Overwater bungalows at Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort are connected by a wooden walkway.
Hotel phone: (689) 40 605 500
Luxurious and traditionally-designed bungalows above the water, with steps from the sundeck to the lagoon below. Perfect beach: curved, white sand, angled palms and views of alluring atolls. And a pool with Infinity edges (but undersized). Conveniently on the main island, yet still distant from the village.

3. Hôtel Maitai Polynesia Bora Bora

Hôtel Maitai Polynesia Bora Bora has sandy areas overlooking the bay and overwater bungalows.
Hotel phone: (689) 40 603 000
Excellent position in a village on the main island, and the sort of beach featured on postcards of Tahiti. Except for the lack of pool, it offers the type of facilities found at the Sofitel et al, but far more affordable. The traditionally-designed above-water bungalows are lovely, but clustered tightly together, while more modest ones on the sand offer direct sea views. Also, some free activities.

4. Rohotu Fare Lodge

Rohutu Fare Lodge offers great sea views and mountain backdrops.
Hotel phone: (689) 87 707 799
Faultless tropical jungle escape. Handful of exotic and luxurious bungalows among dense gardens of fruit trees and statues. Packed with local arts/crafts, each bungalow also features a kitchen, gorgeous Balinese-style outdoor bathroom, and balcony with sea views (albeit distant). Also very appealing is the communal lounge/library. And the isolation is easily offset by free transfers anywhere, anytime.
