Contemporary design and lagoon views create a serene setting at this island resort.
The South Pacific has long enticed romantics, and among its islands, Bora Bora is a favorite, with tropical rain forests framing seductive white sand beaches. At Le Méridien Bora Bora, guests enjoy beach bungalows with hammocks on their own stretch of sand or overwater bungalows with glass-bottom floors for viewing the wonders of the sea below. All are done in charming Polynesian style with burnished hardwoods and thatched ceilings.
Themed menus are a highlight at Te Ava, with its tables right in the sand. Le Tipanié serves beachy gourmet cuisine with a nice selection of Polynesian dishes, and Happaina Wine Bar offers a customized wine collection and tapas with a local twist. At the on-site wellness center and spa, most of the products used in treatments are made fresh daily from fruit enzymes. Along with an infinity swimming pool, the sea beckons adventurous guests to swim among sharks and sting rays. Additional activities include traditional "pirogue" sailing, sunset cruises and nature programs at the Bora Bora Turtle Center, located at the heart of the resort.
