of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
sensational views, incredible rooms, world class service and resort. The restaurants are top of the line, the turtle sanctuary is something unique and would recommend that you go. Views are just second to none, you are never going to want to leave that beach.
"Perfect. Why Can't I Give 7 Stars'"
This was our third visit to Le Meridien, 7th visit to Bora Bora and 8th visit to French Polynesia. There are many reasons why we keep coming back to Le Meridien and I'll try and list them. 1. Location. Bora Bora is the most beautiful island on the planet. As Australians living in Fiji, we are well and truly qualified to make this statement. And as far as views of Mt Otemanu, Le Meridien has by far the best angle. You cannot stop staring at this mountain. And at sunset - well the resort faces west. 2. Rooms (we stayed Overwater Bungalow). Whilst Le Meridien rooms aren't the biggest rooms on Bora Bora, they have that glass panel floor. Simply stunning. And as the house keeping staff told us "this is the most important window in the room". I honestly cannot argue with that! But everything is where it should be' The room seems much larger than the floorplan. We've stayed in bigger overwater rooms in other resorts on Bora Bora, but this room just feels right. Can't explain why' 3. The staff. Perfect. The resort was 100% capacity when we were there and you wouldn't notice. No waiting, always smiling, always flexible (they even smiled and catered for a few "difficult" guests whilst we were there and they too were smiling the next day). I need to make a special mention to Gaelle. She is THE BEST. Thank you (māuruuru) Gaelle. 4. Food. WOW!!!! You want fine dining' Box ticked. You want a buffet breakfast that you keep going back for' Box ticked. You want fresh fruit' Box Ticked. You want eggs and omelette made to order in front of you' Box ticked. You want a burger or pizza (I had 2 pepperoni pizzas during my stay)' Box ticked. But the Asian buffet and theme nights are not to be missed. I'm feeling hungry writing this review now! 5. The Extras. As a 7 time visitor to Bora Bora, this is what sets Le Meridien apart from the "others". Ambience (can't explain, but it just feels right). Transfers to Viatape. If you need Soya milk' Just ask. If you are a Diver (I am)' Done. You need - you ask - you get. 6. Extra Extras. For the guys - no excuse for not putting the toilet lid down. For the girls - go there and check it out. I'll post it on the Le Meridien TripAdvisor Forums (lol). Māuruuru Le Meridien, We'll be back FOR SURE.
"One of our most memorable and fun holiday!!"
There’s so much good things to say about this hotel and the rest of Borabora. We had a grand time from day 1 til the end that I am seriously bugging my husband to already look into booking the next holiday to go back! My husband being an SPG platinum member, we got VIP treatment from the time we arrived. We have been personally welcomed and escorted through checkin by the very friendly Ricardo. We stayed on one of the over the water bungalows(room 210) which I believe is one of the best, why' coz we had a big coral underneath our bungalows (compared to the other ones), which housed hundreds of different fishes. Each day I would bring bread and feed them before I go for a swim. It was so relaxing and therapeutic. The water underneath our bungalow was only 4ft, and the water was warm all throughout the day with a very calm current compared to that in MAldives. Yes we have stayed in Maldives too but that’s on another review. Staff at Le Meridien are very friendly with special mention to Beautiful Taylor at the restaurant and that French lady Manager over the Tipanie restaurant (sorry didn’t get her name, she wears black uniform), , we actually find everyone on the island has that very warm approach to tourists which made every guests also become so friendly towards the others. Everybody in that island seems to be so calm and smiley. Island is big and has many activities. But quite truthfully when you are in your bungalow, it’s like you don’t want to go out anymore. This place is total paradise which is highLy highly recommended for those who really want to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature. But on days when you would like to do some action, the hotel has many suggested activities not just within the island but also the nearby island. We did a 4x4 land tour with a company called Vavau which can also be booked through the hotel. The best activity by far that was the most unforgettable was the underwater scooter, I think it was from a company called Aquamarine, also can be arranged and booked through the hotel. The underwater scooter is Highly highly recommended. But make sure you book on a very good Sunny day to fully enjoy the experience. My husband celebrated his birthday too at Le Meridien and he was surprised with a birthday song and cake while having breakfast on the morning of his actual birthday. It was a very sweet surprise! Thank you everyone at Le Meridien Borabora. It was one unforgettable stay. We shall see you again soon!
"Beautiful resort with incredible views"
We arrived in Bora Bora from Moorea and were immediately taken by boat to our resort. Check in was seem less and well handled. Our room wasn’t ready and that was expected, so we had lunch and got ourselves acquainted with the surroundings. Once in our room we had an over water bungalow with glass floor a balcony with a ladder into the water. Room was well appointed and very comfortable. It has a master card key system which we have experienced in other counties (no card, no power) so the air conditioning and fan would shut off when you are out. Not a big deal, just letting you know! The resort although sold out was incredibly quiet. Great access to chairs on the beach and by the pools. (No early morning runs to squat with your towels on chairs!). The restaurant selection was good and the food was very good compared to other resorts I’ve been to. We did a shark/stingray snorkeling tour and it was well worth it to experience the lagoon in all its splendour. We did an off property dinner in town at Maikai (review to follow) and I would recommend. Note there is not much to do in town and the shuttle cost out weighs and savings you may think you get buying beer of wine in town! So plan to do multiple things and explore. This was a bucket list trip for us and honestly well worth it. Hope this helps.
"Most amazing hotel and staff: Heaven!!"
My mom and I spent a month traveling in French Polynesia and staying at Le Méridien in Bora Bora was one of the highlight of that trip. I cannot begin to explain how amazing our stay was. Although we spent only one night at the resort, we felt welcome from the very beginning. Patrick picked us up with the shuttle boat from Vaitape right on schedule and was really nice to my mom and I throughout the ride. When we disembarked by the hotel dock, Vaihau welcomed us with a flower necklace (cliché I know, but the flowers smell so good in French Polynesia!!) and a fruit cocktail before giving us a tour of the facilities. Vaihau was amazing and remembered all the little things we needed! We were offered free towels and snorkeling gear! During the stay, we had lunch at Te Ava where we met Cathy and we also had breakfast at Le Tipanié where we met Mareva and Poema. Thank to them and the entire staff, we had the nicest dinning experience! They truly made us feel special and at home! I had never experience such an incredible stay, not only because it is a luxury hotel or because it is located on an idyllic island but MOSTLY because the amazing staff (hotel and restaurants) took such great care of us! I never wanted to leave this place!! We would definitely go back in a heartbeat! Thank you so much!
