A boutique 3-star resort, the Hotel Maitai Polynesia Bora Bora offers overwater bungalows along with beach and garden rooms at prices that are far lower than most of the international chain resorts on the island. This hotel has a distinctly Polynesian feel, so visitors really experience the South Pacific in a more authentic way than those who go to most of the pricier international options.
Aside from the relatively reasonably prices, the Hotel Maitai Polynesia Bora Bora has an excellent location for those who've come to explore the surroundings. Being on the main island, guests can visit other restaurants, shops, and spas with ease, as well as participate in tours or water sports that are offered independently.
The Hotel Maitai Polynesia Bora Bora is located on the southeast coast of the main island of Bora Bora in French Polynesia.
This boutique resort features 19 overwater bungalows in addition to 28 garden-view rooms, 20 ocean-view rooms, and 7 beach bungalows.
No on-site spa, but several are available at nearby resorts
To reach the Hotel Maitai Polynesia Bora Bora you need to fly to Tahiti and then take a 50-minute flight to Bora Bora. Once there you’ll take the free shuttle boat to the main island, and then a ground shuttle to the resort near the southern tip of the island.
The Hotel Maitai Polynesia Bora Bora is one of the more moderately priced resorts on the island, and the reviews tend to reflect that fact. Most guests are generally happy, but some point out minor maintenance problems or indifferent service as well as pricey dining.
The positives are that the hotel is very well located on the main island and close to shops and other restaurants, giving guests an easy and wide range of choices that isn’t available at many of the more secluded hotels.
