Exceptional Resort in Bora Bora
The Four Seasons experience is felt right as soon you arrive at Bora Bora Airport. The private boat ride to the resort is breathtaking. The captain and porters are super friendly and welcoming. As the boat pulls up to the resort dock, you are immediately greeted with a smile by a friendly front desk employee. They welcome you by name and are prepared with your room key and a golf cart. I really appreciated how the Four Seasons handles checkin. Front desk checkin is eliminated. They drive you from the boat dock to your bungalow by golf cart. Check in is completed in your room, away from others. They even drive you around on a brief tour of the hotel grounds before arriving to your room. The resort is massive and we really appreciated the tour. The Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora place is paradise, plain and simple. The service was above and beyond our expectations. This Four Seasons property really set the bar very high in terms of service. The employees are amazing, just happy and willing to serve, eager to please. Food is really good for a resort at all the restaurants. I appreciated the traditional local options as well as western options. They have something for everyone. The rooms are out of this world. They are enormous with amazing outdoor areas, and very tastefully decorated. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, we felt incredibly safe at the resort because the staff wore masks at all times, made sure eating areas were socially distanced, and shared areas were clean. This property is absolutely gorgeous and I highly recommend staying here.
Extraordinarily beautiful amongst all the resorts in the world and by far the best in Bora Bora!
The Four Seasons resort in Bora Bora can be described as nothing less than magical, with views of the surrounding coral atoll, combined with superb hospitality, our stay was truly unforgettable. My husband and I came here for our honeymoon, as you can imagine, picking a honeymoon location is a decision that takes thought and time — we wanted everything to be special. The staff were thoughtful and did an amazing job at welcoming us and making our stay extremely relaxing when we wanted to relax and adventurous when we wanted to go exploring. The arrival at the hotel is nothing short of a movie scene, a boat pulls up to the dock and you are immediately greeted by the friendly staff. The COVID-19 safety precautions were executed perfectly, myself and my partner felt very safe. Once we were welcomed, we were given a brief tour of the property and then directed to our room. Our room was beautifully renovated with elegant wood and comfortable fabrics. Our window framed a Mountain View and lagoon view, which made waking up in the morning even more special. The food at the resort was delicious and fresh. There a variety of dinner options that: Arii Moana (French), Fare Hoa Beach Bar and Grill (Seafood), or Vaimiti (Fusion Asian). Which allowed us to experience a different cuisine every night, meaning our taste buds were never bored! The dishes were tasty and well presented! There are a lot of actives to do around the resort that we took advantage of during our stay. Yoga was a standout, and I am not particularly gifted at yoga. We explored the property, which is exploding with tropical wildlife. The coral gardens were breathtaking, being able to witness such a fragile ecosystem was a truly special moment for both my husband and I. We also had the opportunity to see sharks and manta rays in their natural habitat, as you can imagine, the waters in Bora Bora are some of the clearest in the world, which makes the experience with the sea creatures even more surreal. On our last night, the staff at the restaurant went above and beyond to play our wedding song on the ukulele. This moment was one of the most memorable of the trip and something I will truly never forget. There are standards for what you expect when going to a resort, but this touch was something so unexpected and the staff really went above and beyond. They were also kind enough to give us gifts of shells to take home to our children. We are bringing them next time! I am so impressed by the attention to detail, the stunning natural beauty, and hospitality of the Four Seasons Bora Bora, we will definitely return. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Christmas Vacation 2020 Bora Bora
I cannot say enough about how great of an experience we had on our family Christmas vacation at The Four Season Bora Bora. The service was impeccable. Every staff member was there to help and never made us feel anything less than important. Everyone was so friendly and kind. The resort was breathtaking and the bungalows were beautiful and had everything we needed. If there happened to be something we were missing they were quickly available to provide us with it. It truly was the most memorable of vacations.
Just as magical the second time!
For our second trip to the Four Seasons Bora Bora, I was worried that it would never live up to the magic of our first. Not to worry, it did. We went seven years ago with our two young children and returned this year with our now older teens. We felt it was a safe COVID destination due to the very low rates in Bora Bora (and FP generally) and the fact that every guest had been tested before they got on the plane and again once they arrived in Tahiti. And the staff are ALL wearing masks and sanitizer is available and encouraged everywhere. In particular, our guest manager Aurore was incredible. So helpful, understanding and professional, she dealt with some questions about our room and was able to switch our two bungalows to even better ones. We are eternally grateful to her for all her help and for the experience. A few tips now that we’ve been twice. Mountain view bungalows are the best, but northern views generally are almost as good. The meal plan is good for those who eat heartily at every meal, but if you just want a light lunch or a fruit plate, you may feel guilty that you’re not using your full allotment. Many of the packages and plans have breakfast included (fabulous a la carte but unlimited given the no-buffet standards right now), so the next time we go we will likely just do the dinner meal plan. We had an appetizer, main course, side and dessert for most dinners but not otherwise. The spa is amazing, wearing a mask for the massage was not an issue and it was fabulous. The shark and ray excursion is wonderful, the half day without lunch was enough even though we love snorkeling. As an aside here, make sure you have SD memory cards for your camera if it needs them. They are NOT available anywhere on Bora Bora, I tried. It was the perfect place to find a bit of respite from COVID and all the anxiety right now. With only a two hour time difference from California, we were able to handle some work calls easily. The pool, beach and grounds are exceptional. There is really no place like it. We will be back and you should go too.
We went on honeymoon 25 years ago to BoraBora, so we decided to celebrate with our three kids the silver anniversary back in BoraBora. The FS Hotel was the perfect choice. The logistic to pick us up at the airport, the welcome refreshments and goodies, all complimentaries available (sandals, sunblock, lotions, gel, hygiene products, coffee, tea) and the plus is the APP in your phone offers a personal and effective concierge at the tip of your finger. The protocols for the Covid situation well implemented, we felt safe and secure all the time. The unblock view to the lagoon, beach and mountain is insuperable! All the staff gave us ROYAL TREATMENT at everywhere we went, restaurants, swimming pool, lagoon. Our celebration organizer Sarah El-Idrissi is magnificent, all details and attention covered and beyond, she was so kind to take the video for us. The chapel is so enchanting and the local people made such a real festive celebration. Also Tony and Brian were incredible. The food is stunning with local flavor and refine french twist, specially the sweets. Because of Covid situation we planned literally at the gate before leaving to BoraBora the celebration and the staff did everything possible so we can have a wonderful memories with our kids and totally successful. The photographer Damien Gobron was magnificent, highly recommended. THANKS FOUR SEASONS HOTEL FOR THIS UNFORGETTABLE TIME! We will be back !!!!!! Elba & Mitchell Matundan
