The most famous hotel In Tahiti, the Hotel Bora Bora was the first resort built in Bora Bora
back in 1961. Its incredible location vastly contributed to its fame and the hotel is to this day the only one of its standard to enjoy a natural beach. Occupying the entire Pointe Raititi peninsula on the main island, overlooking 270 degrees across Matira Lagoon, allows guests privacy and seclusion, while enjoying the ease to explore Bora Bora's activities and restaurants
Breathtaking views of the mythical lagoon reaching towards endless skies extend from both sides of the point as Mt. Otemanu and its sister Mt. Pahia provide a dramatic backdrop. These idyllic surroundings are complemented by the hotel's beautiful gardens: on land, the mature trees and established tropical vegetation resemble a botanical heaven.
Underwater, the coral formations have been protected for many years and a thriving marine population has established the hotel's reputation as the best choice for snorkeling on the main island. Indeed swimmers will often come across Sea Turtles, Octopus, and schools of Leopard and Eagle Rays in the wild along with a multitude of tropical lagoon fish. At Night, the illuminated dock attracts plankton which brings Manta Rays to feed to the delight and awe of our guests.
Hotel Bora Bora's reputation was strengthened in 1989 when the property was acquired by Aman resorts (www.amanresorts.com
) With the Highest staff to room Ratio in French Polynesia, Hotel Bora Bora is a reflection of its loyal local staff. Averaging 11 years of service, many employees are 2nd generation.
