10-Year Wedding Anniversary Trip
My husband and I had dreamt about visiting Bora Bora since we got married. We always said we would go there for our 10 year wedding anniversary, being there was an absolute dream come true. Upon arrival we were given our overwater bungalow facing the dock. My husband didn't like it and wanted a view of Mt.Otemanu, so we paid extra for a better over water bungalow and a gorgeous view of the lagoon with Mt. Otemanu in the back. Price-We knew it would be pricey to visit, but we weren't prepared to pay each way to the main island every time you needed some snacks or water. We went once and stocked up on drinks, snacks, and some food. There is a separate price for everything even the boat transfer from the airport to the island, you would think it was included in the price of the stay, but it is not. Food-The food was ok, I felt for the price it could have been a bit better. The menu didn't change at all in the week we were there. It was the same food for dinner. However, breakfast buffet was delicious and they had a nice variety of food. Beach/water- this is what you dream of. The water was absolutely crystal clear, sparkly, and perfect hues of blues. AMAZING (just wished the weather was a bit warmer (July), it rained and was windy for a couple days) Service- Service was ok too, I thought the staff could have been a bit more attentive to guest, I understand there was a slight language barrier, but even when my husband and I tried to do small talk, they would just answer with a smile and "yes" or "no" Overwater Bungalow- was stunning. The glass table in the room was amazing and I even saw a couple of black time sharks swimming right underneath. Stingrays were seen everyday! Overall, it was good to scratch it off our buckets list, we made our dream a reality, but we probably won't be back solely because of the price and the amenities of the property that come with that price.
Bora bora beach Break
Was onboard Radiance of the seas and decided to book a day pass in Bora Bora for a beach break. The staff were at the jetty waiting for us, we took a ferry to the island. When we reached the hotel, a female staff escorted us to the main lobby and explained us what’s included in the day pass package. The hotel is just amazing and very quiet. Very nice place for honeymooners and couples. Food was just amazing and very excellent service.
Beautiful over water huts with private entry into the crystal clear water from your deck. View is spectacular and the included breakfast buffet had a wide assortment of choices. Free water taxi to the island daily for shopping or site seeing.
All is said in the title! This hotel is a living dream! We went via a company that booked us this hotel for our honeymoon and we don't regret it! Employees are lovely, the food is amazing! They have several restaurants, you can choose your style of cuisine (italian, japanese, ...) The suite we had was beyond our expectations!! Clean, spacious... Everything was perfect!! And the landscape is breathtaking! We highly recommend!
Over the Top for Service, Views, Relaxation, Spa, Food, Etc.
WOW! WOW! WOW! is the best way I can describe our magical week in paradise. We have spent a lot of time in the BVI, St. Lucia and Turks and Caicos. All of these are also incredible. But, this is definitely one of our #1 places and trips. We had Over the Water Bungalow #15 End of the Pontoon. The room was so comfortable and the views were stunning. We loved to feed the fish via our glass top coffee table which slid off to make this possible. At night, we loved to turn the light on under the water and watch the fish and stingrays swim under our room. The service and everything about the Pearl exceeded our expectations, which were high. Since we tend to like less of the party life and more of the quiet and relaxation, we chose the Pearl because of this. Although, on three occasions, we did book a boat and a shuttle van from our place to eat dinner on the main island (twice) and to do a beach drop for a few hours on Matira Beach -- one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We may have to return to this paradise which includes some of the most lovely people we have ever met. The spa, the restaurants, beach and pool were all beautiful, and the advice and excursions planned with help from the concierges were spot on. We didn't want to leave!
