Beautiful private island with lush gardens, immaculate views and the perfect setting for a romantic getaway. The staff are friendly and eager to please to ensure you have the perfect experience. The room was very clean and beautifully decorated in traditional polynesian style. The management was welcoming, adding personal touches to ensure our stay was spectacular.
This is a stunningly beautiful resort in one of the most beautiful lagoons in the world. If you like to kick back, relax and perhaps enjoy snorkeling in the beautiful coral gardens surrounding the resort then this might be just the place for you.
Some resort around Bora Bora provide constant activities like Jet Skiing and Para Sailing etc. This is not that kind of place.
The staff is exceptionally friendly and they make an effort to remember you. But this is not the Four Seasons or Ritz Carlton. There are occasional lapses in the service and while it did not bother me it might bother some.
The food at breakfast and lunch was great but dinner not so much. However the hotel does provide a free boat shuttle to an area of Bora Bora where there are lots of restaurants so you are not stuck. The bar menu is also available in the bar for dinner and I found the food on that to be more enjoyable than in the main restaurant.
I would definitely return here again, it was just what I was looking for in a Tropical Paradise.
