Bora Bora Pearl Resort, Tahiti

Bora Bora Pearl Resort sits on a motu island facing the picturesque island of Bora Bora in French Polynesia. This gem of a resort is characteristically Polynesian in style and offers bungalows over the water, along the beach, and among the gardens. The bungalows are thatch-roofed, spacious, and feature woodwork and touches unique to the Tahitian culture. Don’t worry, you won’t be roughing it – all bungalows are air conditioned and have state-of-the-art bathrooms, mini bars, comfortable beds, satellite television, and DVD players.

The main reception building houses the restaurant and bar, with a smaller restaurant and bar behind the pool. Enjoy beautiful views from the restaurant and pool areas of the azure lagoon and volcanic peaks of Bora Bora. There are tennis courts and water sports equipment available for use.

I have stayed here twice, and both times I found the service to be gracious and polite. And while the clientele are mainly couples celebrating romantic milestones, this resort is also great for friends traveling together or a family that prefers a sedate, laid back setting. Bring a novel, grab a hammock, and be prepared to completely unwind for a few days in tropical paradise. Diving enthusiasts will enjoy the PADI certified Bora Bora Blue Nui Dive Center located at the resort. And for a little pampering time, the resort’s Manaea Spa is set along a tranquil pond with lush tropical vegetation.

About 80 bungalow units total. To get to Bora Bora, you will fly in to Papeete Tahiti International Airport, and take an interisland flight from Papeete to Bora Bora. From Bora Bora airport, you will then need a prearranged boat transfer to get to the resort.
