Welcome To Paradise!!

Thanks for stopping in! On this site you will find my personal photographs and reviews of the many resorts on Bora Bora.  There are also links on the right side of this page to my other Island sites, resort photos & reviews.      

Bora Bora has been called the most beautiful island in the world. The lagoon is legendary, the people are friendly and their culture is facinating. Choosing a hotel in Bora Bora can be a daunting task. Accomodations range from five star resorts to small family run pensions. I am including some of the most popular resort properties on this site. I hope the photographs and reviews are helpful in your search for your perfect paradise.


I've visited the Thalasso many times since their opening in May of 2006. My most recent visit was in December 2013.  Honestly, 'Luxurious' is the word for this five star property. All bungalows are overwater here with different catagories. The bungalows are identical inside and only vary by the distance out over water & views. They are spacious, contemporary in design and tasteful with abit of Tahitian flair thrown in. There is a large living room and an actual entryway, both with floor to ceiling glass. The large deck has a table, chairs, loungers, and a pontoon below for sunning, a shower and ladder to the water. The bedroom is a separate room with a raised king bed and a picture window out to the sea. Flat screen TVs in both livingroom and bedroom. Don't know why we needed two TV's, but they've got them if you want them. The bathroom is schmancy with a fancy tub for you girls with a picture window and separate shower that you'll wish you could pack in your suitcase to take home. I swear I will never forget that bubble bath and the view...The colors are muted, soft and dark wood. This place is fantastic! The view of Bora Bora is unforgettable here. The waters are crystal clear & azure aqua blue at this property. It is fairly deep under the Sapphire and Diamond catagories and has a soft sand bottom. The fish have returned and the resort has a coral nursery growing. Free ray feeding is offered every day on the beach as well. The Algotherm Spa is 13,000 square feet of pure Heaven and I swear the products really work! The newest addition at the resort is the Corail Restaurant, very romantic with lovely lagoon views at night.  You can also take the free daytime boat over to their sister resort, the Intercontinental Le Moana, get a kayak, and pop out to the coral gardens for some wonderful Free snorkeling. One of the best things about staying at the Thalasso is that guests can enjoy their sister resort's beach, and sign for meals and drinks there as well! Still Sparkely new, this resort set a new precident of luxury in French Polynesia.

Opened September 1, 2008, Four Seasons Bora Bora sets a new standard in service unmatched by any other resort on the island. Friendly, experienced, courteous and prompt, each staff member I encountered was eager to please. True Tahitian ambience awaits those seeking five star plus elegance with all the trimmings. The bungalows are spacious, private, romantic and decorated with incredible attention to detail. I stayed in a Mountain View Overwater here. Each room has sliding glass that opens onto the deck with endless views of the azure blue lagoon. The white sandy beach here runs the entire length of the resort and then some. There are tropical fish about already (I even saw some rays!). The best snorkeling is on the shark-ray feeding excursion. Incredible! The resort spa is quiet, intimate, and has island views from the womens spa and open sea views from the mens separate area. There is also a co-ed relaxation room that will lull you into nap heaven. Hubby and I had the couples massage which was truly wonderful. The gym is full service and sports an open ocean view. There is a Kids for all Seasons Club and a Teen Club complete with it’s own Chill Island and lagoon access. The restaurants offer a wide variety of fare from casual burgers at the Beach Bar to fine dining at the Arii Moana. Mesmerizing and overwhelmingly beautiful, this resort and its exemplary service sets the highest bar in Bora Bora. There are lots and lots of photos of everything beginning below (sorry no bubble bath photos with me in them online!) haha! Enjoy, this is a spectacular property.
Arrival is via Yacht.
