Bora Bora 5-star water villas with shark feeding and snorkeling gear for US$576 per night
An island that commonly saturates traveler's dreams, Bora Bora is a tropical escape worthy of a second visit. It's also an vacation experience that requires a good chunk of change to enjoy, especially if you're eyeing an overwater villa at one of the island's luxury overwater resorts.
One of the most popular overwater choices on the island is the Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora. Here you'll find a large selection of land and overwater villas to choose from, various ocean activities, dining options and a spa. Because of all the activities available, this resort is actually a solid choice for families and for honeymooning couples. With overwater villa rooms starting at just US$576 per night for two people, this resort is a hard one to beat.
A water villa at the Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora for US$576 (taxes and fees included) per night for two people.
With an impressively low nightly rate that comes in much lower than the normal low season average, this rate is ideal for travelers seeking a stay at a 5-star resort that's a little easier on a tighter budget. With that said, this nightly rate is for the month of December (aside from Christmas week) and isn't a rate that you'll find throughout the rest of the year. This rate is also only for the 1 bedroom overwater villa with a beach view. This means that you're likely to find others eyeing the same room as you, so you don't want to wait to the last minute to book.
Private overwater villas with stunning views
All together, there are 100 villas to choose from, most of which reside over the water and either face the lagoon, the island or the open ocean. Though each of these villas do offer different views to enjoy, they all come with the same amenities. Basic villa amenities include Wi-Fi, room service (24 hour), and a stocked mini bar. Extras include a tea and coffee making area, L'Occitane bath amenities, bottled water that is refreshed twice a day, snorkeling gear and a large private terrace outfitted with chaise lounges, an outdoor shower, and lagoon access via a stair pathway into the water below.
Snorkeling, shark feeding and more
Once you decide to explore the rest of the resort outside of your room, you'll find a very nice selection of things to do. If you're looking for adventure, then you don't want to miss a chance to feed some local sharks with the resort's shark feeding excursion. During this activity you'll also get the chance to feed a few bat rays. Snorkeling is also a common activity choice and snorkeling gear is provided for free by the resort.
On land you'll find an infinity pool, 2 tennis courts, a gym with a steam room and various fitness classes that you can participate in as well as a spa. This spa pleases with various massages, an outdoor pool and a sensory experience shower. If you're traveling with children you'll also enjoy the on-site kid's club.
