Le Méridien Bora Bora

Le Meredien Bora Bora

One thing beneficial about a global luxury resort brand like Le Méridien is that you know everything will be of top standard, and the Le Méridien Bora Bora does not disappoint in that regard. With excellent views from the long islet just off the main Bora Bora Island, this resort has that “paradise” feel from the moment you first see it from the air.

Nearly every room is an overwater bungalow, so the service is geared to make it an unforgettable experience for every guest. This is an ideal resort for a honeymoon or other romantic retreat, and it’s also one of the easiest resorts to reach the Bora Bora mainland area, giving guests a far greater range of restaurants and entertainment if that is of interest.

Location

The resort is located on the southern point of Motu Piti Aau, which is a 10-kilometer-long islet on a coral reef just east of the main Bora Bora Island.

What the reviews say

Reviews of the Le Méridien Bora Bora are mostly glowing, but some guests have minor complaints that it doesn’t quite live up to the standards of a few other local resorts which tend to cost much more. Overall the experiences get very high marks from nearly every reviewer, but some point out that service isn’t as fast as they are used to at 5-star resorts, though others rave about the service.

With that said, positive marks include the love for the glass floors, a stunning location, a relaxing vibe, detailed tours and a generous staff.

Getting there

To reach the Le Méridien Bora Bora Resort you have to fly to Tahiti and then change planes for a short flight to Bora Bora. Once landed there you’ll be met at the airport by hotel staff and then taken on a private speedboat directly to the resort.
