Best place to relax and enjoy with your partner.

Excellent staff service makes you feel like you are the only guest in the resort wich is a very good thing.

Obviously if value is what you are looking for you should consider another destination. Everything is ridiculously expensive in Bora Bora and the Four Seasons is not the exception. However this is a once in a lifetime trip so you should splurge and not worry too much about the budget.

Overall we are extremely happy we chose the Four Seasons over other resorts in Bora Bora, and would highly recommend it if your a considering visiting Bora Bora.

We had a bungalow facing the mountain and the sunset, it so amazing to be able to jump in the beautiful water anytime and when you get out there is an outdoor shower to rinse off and 2 lounges chairs to relax on with a book or a glass of champagne. What a dream! The property is beautiful, be sure to snorkel in the lagoon is full of beautiful fish.

This resort is so good, we just keep coming back... all the way from the New York area! The location, room, amenities and turquoise waters are one thing. But the staff is what really makes this place shine.

Everyone is so warm, and being that it was our third visit, we truly feel like family. The entire staff rolled out the red carpet upon our arrival, and the resort manager Diego and his crew helped make it a stay to remember. We enjoyed a wonderful room upgrade and personalized service throughout our visit.

The spa is not to be missed, the food is delicious, and riding around in golf carts to get from point A to point B never gets old. But perhaps the best thing about this special place is the serenity. You will feel away from it all, but with all of the modern conveniences at your home away from home. Can’t recommend this place enough. We will be back.

Four Seasons Bora Bora was exceptional in all ways. My overwater bungalow
was the epitome of understated elegance - perfectly suited for its location.
The staff were exceptional. Lovely cuisine! The spa was terrific. No negatives
in this special place.
I will be back and heartily recommend to friends.

The over the water bungalows are supported by cement pylons that are falling apart. Literally. We were in the bungalow for only 30 minutes when we felt what seemed like a 4.0 Earthquake, we are Californians and are Earthquake veterans.
It was a side to side sway, not an up and down hopping like the 1994 Northridge Quake.

Everything was swaying, the overhead ceiling fans, the towels on the towel rack, it was a slow motion Earthquake. Or so I thought, after the 3rd time in about an hour we realized that every time the 6 passenger club cars ( golf carts) drove by on the 8' wide pier that accesses all the over the water bungalows, the whole structure swayed back and forth.

I went outside and took a look at the cement pylons that hold up the bungalows and was shocked at what I saw. If this was Los Angeles, the Building and Safety department would Red tag the structure and not let anyone in.

Due to a poor quality cement mixture, the sea water has penetrated the pylons and is rusting the steel rebar inside. Rusting rebar swells and expands and has cracked open the cement pylons. (See pictures)

The structural integrity has been severely compromised. While the bungalows are only in about 20' of water, I wondered if we could get out fast enough if the pylons all failed. All the pylons are cracked, many with chunks of cement missing.

Now, about the termites. I noticed what looked like sand on the bedspread when we arrived. I wondered how this tan looking sand got there. We called housekeeping and they came and cleaned it up. Later after lunch more "sand" was on the bed. I called housekeeping again, they said they would fix it.

They came and stapled sheets to the thatched palm frond ceiling to create a diaper for the termite poop that was falling on the bed. They knew exactly what was going on.

I know a bit about termites and structural integrity as I own apartment buildings in Los Angeles. Poor choices in building materials and the quality of cement are to blame for this fiasco. I thought about how to fix it Without demolishing the bungalows and I'm stumped.

This is a beautiful resort on the most spectacular island of the 16 we have visited in the South Pacific. The people working at the resort are the best of the best. The only accommodations on land at this resort are the villas, a great choice, very expensive. The reason they build over the water is because they have to. There is just not enough island to build on.

We will return to Bora Bora, but not in a over the water bungalow at the Four Seasons. They should change the name of the bungalows to "Atlantis" as they will soon fall into the sea...
