#5 of 16 hotels in Bora Bora
2022 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
The newly-enhanced Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora is a South Pacific paradise, combining the highest standards of service with ultramodern comforts and the natural ease and gracious hospitality of the Polynesian culture. Set upon Bora Bora's surrounding coral atoll, the Resort is a vast tropical grove, replete with coconut palms and pandanus trees. Meandering channels of pure turquoise lead to the main beach or to smaller lagoons, waiting to be discovered. Every vista is breathtaking. The Resort offers 108 one and two-bedroom overwater bungalow suites and seven two and three-bedroom beachfront villa estates, all designed with thatched roofs and decorated with indigenous artwork. Four restaurants offer a vast selection of creative culinary experiences, while the full-service spa is balanced by the powerful rhythms of the Pacific Ocean and the tranquility of the island's lagoon - offering an unmatched combination of relaxation and exhilaration.

BEST hotel I have ever stayed at!!!! I’ve been to 40 countries and this hotel is by far the best. They think of everything for their customers. Not to mention the view!! My god it’s so beautiful. Everything is clean and the food is AMAZING. When we went swimming the waiter brought us ice cold water without us even needing to ask! Everything was so sweet! Big buffet for breakfast with fresh cut coconuts for us to drink. My god, I did not want to leave. It was pricy but to see my mother smiling and so happy I’ll gladly pay for it again and stay longer! Even the worker waved us goodbye from the dock for over 5 minutes while we left on the prettiest boat back to the airport. The pool is so warm and the jacuzzi is so nice. The overwater bungalows are a must! Swimming next to my bedroom is a new favorite thing of mine. I dream about visiting again! 10/10 would recommend ❤️

Luxury and kindness are abundant from beginning to end. We were greeted at the airport with a fresh lei, had our bags loaded onto a beautiful boat, and were whisked away to the resort. Check-in was seamless as I had already been in contact with the resort via the 4 Seasons App. We had both a “lagoon” and “beach” view overwater bungalow. Each were stunning, with luxurious and thoughtful touches throughout the suites, from the bedding to the bathtub. I would like to note, the “lagoon” overwater bungalow offered surreal views, from every point in the suite, of the sun setting behind the main island. You’ve not experienced true relaxation until you’ve watched a French Polynesian sunset from your bathtub. The restaurants are delicious and catered to offering local flavors and ingredients. You’ll be full after a delicious breakfast buffet each morning with items including: fresh fruits and juices, yogurts, sashimi, sausage, eggs, fresh breads, etc. We arrived Wednesday night and had a buffet along with a showing of cultural dances and songs. There is a quieter, more elegant option at a Mediterranean themed restaurant as well. We ate at each and tasted a variety of flavors, and none disappointed. Every staff member will greet you with a smile and “la Orana!” They are quick to respond to requests, and help with outside activity scheduling.

I woke up January 2nd and decided to book a trip to Bora Bora. I ended up leaving two weeks later. As expected, the Four Seasons did not disappoint. I truly believe the staff is what makes the hotel experience good or bad. FS Bora Bora staff were such beautiful souls. I traveled solo and was just met with genuine warm smiles. Everyone knew I was traveling solo, and they all took care of me. My bungalow was just as described. The pictures of the resort and grounds do not do it justice. It is just fantastic. The colors of the lagoon are surreal! Words just cannot describe how truly beautiful this place is.

This was our fourth visit to the Four Seasons Bora Bora since we first stayed there the year of its opening in 2008. Once again we returned with our 2 children. It was a magical experience. We have travelled far and wide, including to other Four Seasons properties. This is a 5-star property where the people really make a difference. The Four Seasons Bora Bora remains our favorite Four Seasons destination, and the best for total rest and relaxation. There’s a reason Bora Bora is regularly named one of the most beautiful islands in the world. One never gets used to the stunning views of Bora Bora’s lagoon set against the stunning Mount Otemanu. The sunsets here are unlike anything we have experienced elsewhere. From the unique layout featuring individual private overwater bungalows that provide the ultimate in luxury, to the smaller lagoons with their coral reefs teaming with exotic fish and plant life to explore, to the immaculately kept grounds, the resort is an experience for all the senses. From the moment one steps off the boat, a short 15 minutes from the airport, you enter a world of peace and tranquility. This is pure escapism. Close your eyes and the world seems to slow, where the only sounds you hear are the waves lapping the shore, the ocean in the distance, and the breeze blowing through the coconut palms. Here you are as far from the hustle and bustle of civilization as can be. Even when the resort is close to capacity, you almost feel as if you have the entire place to yourself. And that’s what the resort aims to do. What makes The Four Seasons Bora Bora particularly special beyond the property itself are the familiar and friendly faces and the care and attention to detail from resort’s first-class staff. From the moment one arrives, you are always made to feel special here. The French Polynesian people are warm and welcoming, and caring and passionate about what they do. Here, the local staff do more than just provide great service, they are an invaluable part of the entire guest experience, helping the resort establish a deep sense of place with an increasing focus on sustainability. One gets the sense here that the resort genuinely cares about its people, and in turn they take care of guests. Staff identity and culture are supported with their choice of wearing traditional Polynesian attire on a weekly basis. We’ve delighted in engaging with the entire team and learning more about their culture each time we visit, all under the care and attention of Mr. Chanet, the property’s General Manager, who took the time to reach out during our stay. Most of the people who work at the Four Seasons Bora Bora are locals and they are a wealth of knowledge on everything Bora Bora and French Polynesia in general. For first timers they will help suggest activities and experiences, for regulars they are great source of up-to-date information on the island and its surroundings. Resort staff provided invaluable assistance throughout our stay. It began with the wonderful service from Anais at the front desk who welcomed us at the airport and then escorted us all the way through check in to our overwater bungalow. Angèle, Marie, and Julio at Terre Nui help oversee the best breakfast buffet in the world, and Jeanne is always a delight to see at dinner. At Faré Hoa, the beach bar and grill, a variety of lunch options are served under the hard work of Patricia and her team. Sebastian, the sommelier, regaled us with stories from his many travels, while our server Germain, who is a fountain of knowledge on the island, its ways and its people, was a delight to chat with during dinners at Arii Moana. Chef Johann even went out of his way to delight our daughter with her favorite lunch on more than one occasion. Mathilde, the resident Marine Biologist, is a wealth of information on the lagoons and she took the time to show us an entire world underwater. Mathilde was more than happy to assist with our daughter’s school project, even capturing some underwater pictures for her to use. Much work continues to be done to restore and expand the coral gardens since our last visit. Bring your snorkel gear or grab some from concierge. The swim in the coral lagoons became a part of our routine, with new discoveries each day. Last but not least, the best childcare in the world is provided from Maja, at Bora Bora Childcare Service. Speaking of kids, Four Seasons Bora Bora is family friendly. They have a first-class kids club just around the corner from the main pool. Between Maja and the services offered by the kids club, you can leave the little ones for as long as you’d like while you indulge in a massage or other activities, or simply make time for yourself to do absolutely nothing but wade in the pool or lagoon while sipping the cocktail of the day. Each time we visit, Bora Bora casts a spell on us. While there are other great resort destinations around the world, Four Seasons Bora Bora is a destination we hold in highest regard. And.. We’ll be back! What’s new since our last visit? -A top to bottom renovation of their bungalows took place in 2019, and more recently their villas that now feature larger outdoor pools, a private outdoor kitchen area, and more! -Work continues to ensure all of the natural wood and other finishings are refurbished to keep the resort in top condition. -The resort is developing an organic garden to grow a large part of their fruit, vegetable, and herbs. Request a tour! -Arii Moana Restaurant now serves a variety of Mediterranean food most nights, with a weekly Italian specialty night -Terre Nui Restaurant does a weekly fish house on Fridays. We had the most amazing assortment of fresh fish. -Waterproof wristbands replace traditional key cards so you never misplace your room key -A new airline, Air Moana, is starting inter-islands in February, 2023. They will offer some needed competition on flights from Papeete, the capital, to Bora Bora, and elsewhere. For flights from the U.S. to Papeete there are now several airlines that fly to French Polynesia including Delta, United, French Bee, Air France, and Air Tahiti Niu. In addition to Los Angeles and San Francisco, Seattle in a recently added gateway. Do’s and Don’ts Do -Take a private lagoon tour at the resort with their resident Marine Biologist -Have the signature Polynesian Massage in their Spa soon after arriving -Book at least a Mountain View overwater bungalow to enjoy the view over and over and over again!-For longer stays, plan a day trip to the nearby island of Taha’a by helicopter, and private island tour of Taha’a with Haro who took us to a Vanilla plantation and Pearl Farm (you can also visit a rum distillery). All of this can be arranged with the concierge. Don’t -Don’t arrive into French Polynesia so late that you are forced to overnight in Papeete, the capital. Time your arriving flight with an inter-island connecting flight to head straight for Bora Bora the same day. -Don’t leave too soon! Make sure you allocate at least 5 days to get in the right frame of mind and experience pure bliss.

It’s a beautiful resort and the staff very friendly. The food was really good as well. I am coming back next year . The lagoon was clean . The environment was quiet and peaceful. The boat rides was fun. We had a great time . The housekeepers came two times a day which was great.

I can always find something that could be improved no matter where we stay…EXCEPT the Four Seasons Bora Bora. This was our second stay, and it was even more amazing than the first time! If you possibly can, splurge on a bungalow with a plunge pool. As lovely as the pool and beach are (plenty of seating with and without shade, excellent service and really, really pretty), there is nothing like switching between a dip in the lagoon and a dip in your own plunge pool. Ahhhhh…. The bungalows themselves are spacious and beautifully appointed, regardless of price point (which varies a lot, depending on how far out on the pontoon you are, the view, whether or not there’s a pool, etc). The restaurants are all good, with a nice assortment of cuisines. However, the staff at Vaimiti were off the charts in terms hospitable, charming, and more than willing to go the extra mile to make every dinner memorable. The breakfast buffet (included) is great: huge selection, entrees prepared to order and, amazingly for a European-ish resort (it is FRENCH Polynesia), crispy bacon!!!! A fantasy come true in every way.

Worse 4 seasons experience of my life. The food, except for the Mediterranean and breakfast buffet, was absolutely terrible. We stayed on lesser resorts on other islands, and even the breakfast pastries at each of the others were far superior to here. The kitchens at this resort are a disaster. Other Services were often terrible — great for a Motel 6 but not for the 4 Seasons prices. Having stayed at both, you will be much better off at the St Regis.

This resort is truly one of the best in Bora Bora. My 7 and 4 year olds absolutely loved it. They had a decent kids menu and lots of water activities. Their favorite was the snorkeling in the inner lagoon where there were no waves. The water and the fish there were amazing as well. They also enjoyed the pool and the beach. We were there for 10 nights and I think we stayed too long as the food was getting repetitive. A 5 night stay will be much better as there is just enough time to try everything on the menus.

Even though the resort and location are absolutely perfect and magical, what stood out to us was the attention to detail in the overall experience staying at this resort. Four Seasons has clearly spend a lot of time and effort making sure every detail of the experience is perfect. From our personalised check-in and orientation, to the amenities in the room, to the excellent condition of the grounds and rooms, everything was well thought out to make the experience exceptional. Every interaction we had with Four Seasons staff made us feel like VIPs. Especially as customer service has been crumbling everywhere else since the pandemic, the Four Seasons Bora Bora felt like a different world entirely. Unparalleled service and quality. The phone app was a great touch as well. Especially the ability to order in-room dining or ask questions to reception without having to talk on the phone (we prefer texting to phone calls, but thats rarely an option at a hotel or resort). Nowhere on the resort did it ever feel overly busy. There was never a rush to get seating like at other resorts, and it never felt crowded or loud anywhere. The capacity of the resort is perfectly managed and really added to the high-end feeling. I can’t think of a single thing that would have improved our experience. It was literally perfect, made our honeymoon forever memorable. We can’t wait to return someday, and to experience other Four Seasons properties.
