    Location 3.0 /10

    The hotel is 7.5 miles from Vaitape (5 min. by boat) and 6 miles from the airport (10 min. by boat).

    Accommodation 9.20 /10

    The Meridien accommodations are certainly the most original and beautiful among Bora Bora hotels and have wonderful ethnic decor that combines the warmth of dark kohu wood and white stained wood. The rooms are not huge but are very good dimensions (645 feet²) and are organized in an original way: the dividing wall (located almost in the centre of the room and flanking a sofa) which allows access to the bathroom, which is very beautiful and has a bathtub enclosed with wood shutters, a spacious shower with sewage disposal system on the ground, a double basin, beautiful mirrors and wall lamps. At your bedside, you will find a large dressing room (near 54 feet²) with console table, wide shelves, and an enormous electronic safe. On the other side, a desk transforms into a vanity. Opposite the sofa, a low wooden table is designed over a large transparent slab (more than 43 feet²) which allows you to see undersea wildlife, including rays and sharks! Finally outside, a beautiful terrace with wooden chairs and lounges gives access to the lagoon through an esthetically pleasing spiral staircase. Nothing is missing - there is even a DVD player (borrow at reception).

    Overview 9.45 /10

    The Meridien is in a magic setting, has a splendid lagoon, a breathtaking view on Otemanu and Pahia mountains (highest island point), and it enjoys an exceptional location on an isolated island on the east coast. The hotel is totally surrounded by water thanks to a protected lagoon which hosts a large variety of undersea species. Public spaces are beautiful, functional, friendly, and largely open to the outside. ?t has an extremely refined decor and architecture with an authentic "South Pacific" style. There is a collection of masks and Papuan dresses. In brief, the Meridien guarantees a 100% seaside stay, with 82 bungalows on stilts and 17 "beach" bungalows. In a "fine and relaxed" atmosphere.

    Food and drink 8.95 /10

    The main restaurant occupies several levels of a wooden area in a superb setting on the edge of the lagoon. Large windows are open to show the surrounding environment. The table decor and beautiful crockery are very nice. The menu offers a wide range of French, international, and Tahitian specialties. Another restaurant serves breakfasts on the beach (snack in high season). In the main restaurant, the Tipaniers, you will have the choice of either a buffet (different themes every day) or the a la carte menu. Top quality cuisine. Ideal for a "one-to-one" by night or on the edge of the lagoon at sunset.

    Beach 8.70 /10

    The Meridien beach dimensions are ideal. It is bordered by water on both sides - a double display that allows to you to bathe in the protected lagoon or the other lagoon. There are deckchairs and sunshades. Towels are available (in the rooms). Several sailing canoes, catamarans (for a extra charge), kayak, and pedalo are available. The hotel offers deep-sea diving with "Nemo World" diving club.

    To know

    The Meridien is not a hotel especially devoted to families but it does have a "family friendly" program and supplies (marine) facilities adapted to kids at interesting prices (meals are free for kids under 3 years, 50% reduction for those under 12). The environment is safe for toddlers: the water is not too deep and there are no roads on the island. The hotel has a protected lagoon which hosts hundreds of aquatic species, including threatened tortoises. Kids can sponsor the latter. Finally, the Meridien has two bungalows which provide "spa" care.

        Nous avions un bungalow sur pilotis (avec une partie du sol en verre pour admirer la beauté du lagon). Le bungalow est plus qu'agréable, avec une vue splendide, une douche pour se laver en remontant du lagon avant même de rentrer dans le bungalow. Le restaurant propose chaque soir des thèmes pour le buffet et pour ceux qui le souhaite, il y a également une partie restaurant "classique". Un séjour que nous ne regrettons pas.

      • Location 7.0

      The Maitai Polynesia is one of the hotels of Bora Bora which makes the accommodation on this pearl of the Pacific better value. Nicknamed the pearl of the Pacific, Bora Bora is a magnificent island where tourism is costly, thus putting off less wealthy travellers who cannot afford its luxury accommodation, even for an overnight stay. Fortunately, the main island has a few hotels of intermediary standard, which now compete and bring down their prices when the number of guests is low. The Maitai is one of them. It is therefore one of the hotels you should keep in mind if you would like to see Bora Bora without spending a fortune, while still enjoying the beauty of the lagoon.

      The Four Seasons luxury hotel recently opened in Bora Bora and it is the ideal place for a family holiday. You will find everything that you need here, from accommodation to the various activities organised to cater for, and entertain, young and old alike. The hotel is located on a very large estate meaning that guests can enjoy their holiday here without having to leave the property, which also has land-based sports facilities, water sports equipment and a spa.

      • Location 7.0

      As Bora Bora is very well-known and sometimes criticised for its inordinate number of hotels (even though there are only fifteen or so on the main island and motus), it could be taken for the Venice of tropical islands: its hotels are beautiful and the natural setting is superb. The enchanting, green island rises high out of the superb blue lagoon encircling it, while the hotels blend in with the surroundings (like in Venice) and make for a superb holiday destination. As this kind of holiday comes at a price, the Moana, which is next to Matira beach on the main island, is to be recommended for its pleasant accommodation and traditional, friendly atmosphere. Indeed, it is the ideal starting point to explore the whole of the island of Bora Bora.

      The St. Regis is one of the finest luxury hotels Bora Bora has to offer. Located on a motu facing the east coast of Bora Bora, the estate is spacious (with 42-acre grounds) and double-fronted (facing both the ocean and the lagoon) and it has a spa alongside the lagoon (complete with a small private beach), several swimming pools, a total of 91 villas either on the motu or on stilts, some beautiful gardens, and, to top it all off, an elegant ambience. The only downside is the restaurants, which are over-priced, but then you could always head over to the main island of Bora Bora for lunch (a shuttle service is provided during the day, but this will incur an additional charge).

      This superb and innovative hotel is one to remember, if only for its thalassotherapy centre, (known as a 'thalasso and spa'), which is a true haven of well-being, with water that has been drawn from a depth of 3,000 ft, off the coast of Bora Bora. As this seawater is pumped at very cold temperatures (5° C), it is also used for the hotel's air-conditioning system (communal areas and villas), and contributes to reducing the hotel's energy consumption and hence its environmental impact. The Intercontinental Thalasso also offers the luxury of accommodating its guests in villas a free shuttle is available which takes guests to Bora Bora's other Intercontinental hotel, the Moana. This trip gives you the opportunity to visit Pointe Matira peninsula, on Bora Bora's main island.

      In our view, the Temanuata Village is too expensive for the quality of the accommodation and the services on offer. This aspect will come out in our commentary, but beyond these fee-related considerations, there is something that you should know about Bora Bora: it is currently a better idea to stay in a three-star hotel than in a guest house or a bed and breakfast. As hotels are offering all sorts of different offers at the moment to attract tourists, which is not the case with the local guesthouse or bed and breakfast. Let's hope that these establishments soon pick up on the trend, because so far they are the most expensive form of accommodation in Polynesia.

      As Bora Bora is very well-known and sometimes criticised for its inordinate number of hotels (even though there are only fifteen or so on the main island and motus), it could be taken for the Venice of tropical islands: its hotels are beautiful and the natural setting is superb. The enchanting, green island rises high out of the superb blue lagoon encircling it, while the hotels blend in with the surroundings (like in Venice) and make for a superb holiday destination. As this kind of holiday comes at a price, the Moana, which is next to Matira beach on the main island, is to be recommended for its pleasant accommodation and traditional, friendly atmosphere. Indeed, it is the ideal starting point to explore the whole of the island of Bora Bora.
