The 5 Star Conrad Bora Bora Nui is located in a private cove on Motu To’opua, a tiny island off the southwest end of Bora Bora’s mainland and faces out to the open ocean. The setting is secluded and romantic and the resort has its own, even more secluded and romantic, private island, Motu Tapu, which is accessible only to guests.
Their hilltop Hina Spa has soothing treatments and tremendous panoramic views, there are four excellent dining options, a large infinity pool and pool bar, and some some lovely stretches of the purest of white sands. The Conrad is family friendly; it has its own Kid’s Club, but overall the atmosphere is one of romance and relaxed, indulgent tranquility.
The one slight drawback with the Conrad is that the waters there at the ocean’s edge have not got quite the same dreamy calm as those around the sheltered lagoon where for example the Intercontinental, the St. Regis and the Four Seasons are located. That being said though there is something quite affecting about gazing out towards the almost infinite open ocean.
They have a total of 114 accommodation units at the Conrad, with a choice between overwater, beach and garden. The Conrad, in its previous incarnation as a Hilton, was the first resort in Bora Bora to offer the now ubiquitous overwater bungalows and these are, of course, the most desired and as plush and opulent as you may imagine.
They all offer lots of space too, with the smallest on offer covering around 1200 ft². They have sleek and stylish interiors, King size beds and wall to wall sliding doors opening out to a large deck where you have direct access to the sea, lounging and dining furniture and an outdoor shower. Some, the ‘Pool Villas’, also come with an infinity plunge pool and overwater catamaran style hammock nets to sink into.
The Beach Villas though are also really quite gorgeous and compare well to the overwaters. Sitting on the beach, just feet from the water, they the same luxurious standards and also come with infinity style plunge pools as standard, overlooking the sand and the sea.
Then there are the Garden Suites. They are situated in the garden area just behind the beach. They are spacious and equally beautifully designed and decorated, though the ‘Garden View’ choices don’t have much of a view. The pick of them therefore are the ‘Horizon View Villas’ which are higher up on the hill and have terrific views over the resort and the ocean beyond.
Throughout the accommodation choices you can expect modern facilities worthy of The Conrad’s 5 Star status; A/C, mini bar, coffee makers, flat screen TVs and top of the range music systems. All the bathrooms are suitably opulent at this resort with lovely deep baths, rain showers, a range of quality pampering products and oodles of space.
FACILITIES & THINGS TO DO:
A wonderful buffet and a la carte breakfast is served daily at the resort’s signature, and very lovely, Iriati Restaurant. Here you can also enjoy some excellent French food and wine for lunch and dinner. The more informal, sand floored, Tamure Beach Grill sits right by the beach and the pool, serves lunch daily and also has drinks and various themed dinners on some evenings.
Then there are the Banyan, a Chinese restaurant, the Upa Upa Lounge, a part cocktail bar-part sushi restaurant which also does various snacks until late, and the very casual swim-up bar at the resort’s centerpiece infinity pool.
Private dining can also be arranged at The Conrad, with a particularly nice option being a private beach dinner or picnic on the resort’s own secluded island, Motu Tapu, and you can order in-room dining 24 hours a day.
Named after a Polynesian goddess, the Hina Spa sits on the hill behind the resort and has tremendous views from its floor to ceiling windows. It has an array of treatments, indoor and outdoor treatment decks, a couple’s room with jacuzzi, and a steam room/sauna.
Water sports are plentiful here with complimentary non-motorized water sports equipment available; paddle boats, kayaks and snorkel gear for example, with the snorkeling around the Conrad being arguably the very best on Bora Bora.
Lots of more hardcore activities such as scuba diving, kite surfing and jet skiing can also be arranged and on dry land you can use the complimentary bikes to explore the resort, go hiking around the hills, either guided or solo, and play a round of tennis or mini golf.
Their Fitness Center has state of the art equipment, both cardio and weights, and is accessible 24 hours a day. Personal training and fitness classes are also available and the resort also has a 2.5-kilometer scenic running track.
There are daily tournaments for guests to partake in at The Conrad, more for fun than competition, including things like kayak racing, mini-golf, beach volleyball and tennis.
The Conrad also does educational programs, and organizes bespoke excursions with native guides where guests can learn everything from the ukulele and the Tahitian language to Coco leaf braiding and traditional Polynesian tattooing. On-site you can also get a feel for local culture with some evening dance and story telling performances accompanied by traditional Polynesian food and drink.
Children will be well looked after at the Tamari’i Kids Club which has separate zones for up to, and over 7 years, and babysitting services are also available. There is a great concierge service too at the Conrad with guests being invited to download a special Conrad Concierge app on arrival.
