Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa Review
At the southern tip of Motu Toopua, this resort is considered to have one of the best beaches in Bora Bora and amazing snorkeling right off the bungalows. It's a large resort with expansive gardens; electric carts are available for those who don't want long walks by the shore or through the coconut groves. Bungalows are elegantly furnished with Indonesian mahogany canopy beds swathed in net and Italian marble baths. A regular shuttle ferries guests to and from Vaitape throughout the day and well into the night for those who want to dine on the mainland.
Lost in Paradise
Situated on a long, white beach with views of majestic cloud-swathed Mt. Otemanu, this is one of Bora Bora's most well-situated resorts. The 122 villas and suites, lovely hill-top spa, and huge infinity pool populate the south end of Motu Toopua, one of 30 islets that fringe Bora Bora's famed blue lagoon. All bungalows are gigantic, with mahogany canopy beds, separate sitting rooms, and Italian marble bathrooms. Beyond the resort, Toopua's coral gardens are a favourite with snorkelers, and the volcanic rock formation, Hiro's Bells, named after a Polynesian god, is a fun place to explore. Free shuttle boats ferry guests to and from Bora Bora's tiny "capital" of Vaitape.
