The family friendly Four Seasons Resort forms an exclusive enclave by the coral reefs to the north east of Bora Bora and offers overwater bungalows, and beach villas, that are spacious, sleek and very well equipped. Their style is more modernist than most and they have the feel of luxury design apartments where everything feels crisp, clean and new.
All come with tremendous views over Mount Otemanu and the lagoon, the overwater bungalows particularly, and the resort itself is a pleasure to stroll around with plenty to do and see, and a cosy, friendly, atmosphere throughout.
Though the vibe is, this being Bora Bora, generally one of romantic indulgence, The Four Seasons takes care of children better than most with a kid’s club and plenty of organized activities for both youngsters and teens.
Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora has one hundred over-water bungalows and seven beachfront villas to choose from, ranging in size from 1070 ft² to over 3200 ft², with a maximum occupancy of 6 for the larger units.
All are extremely comfortable, spacious and beautifully styled, with teak woods and pastel shaded soft furnishings. The outside spaces are expansive and well kitted out, with the overwater bungalows having private access to the water as well as outdoor showers, chaises lounges, circular daybeds and dining tables. All the overwaters have internal glass floor panels to watch the sea life in the lagoon below too and some also have plunge pools on the deck.
You can expect King size beds as standard in all of the units as well as plasma screen satellite TVs, DVD players, coffee machines, mini fridges, music stations etc. in the lounge areas. All the bathrooms come with nice, large and deep, baths and with some opening out to the sea via sliding doors.
Room service is 24 hours and the service throughout the resort, which also provides concierge and business services, is of the highest quality.
FACILITIES & THINGS TO DO:
You can enjoy some tremendous food at the Four Seasons, where you have a choice of four venues from casual to fine dining. The seafood centric French-Polynesian Arii Moana Restaurant is one of Bora Bora’s most heralded, and definitely worth trying out at least one evening. Private dining can also be arranged, with a particularly nice experience being to have a gourmet meal delivered to your villa by traditional canoe, and set up on your deck, for a relaxed, romantic evening in.
The infinity swimming pool which blends beautifully out with the sea also has a swim up bar and some fine cocktails, which can also be enjoyed into the early hours at the casual chic Fare Hoa Bar which has live music most nights. The Sunset Restaurant and Bar is a slightly more formal, but also relaxed place for an evening of drinking. It also does some excellent sushi as well as various Asian small dishes and snacks.
There is an onsite, open air gym at the Four Seasons with state-of-the-art equipment, cardio and weights, as well as an over the water yoga platform. There are also two tennis courts at the resort, with night lights, and you can arrange tennis lessons with the resident tennis coach.
Any aches or strains can be soothed by a trip to the kahaia tree-inspired spa which, again, has stunning views and is a haven of luxuriant tranquillity. It has many holistic treatments on offer including what they call the Kahaia Haven Ritual; a naturally exfoliating kahaia, Tahitian black pearl powder & native vanilla body scrub followed by massage and light facial.
There is of course an emphasis on the water here in Bora Bora and many water based activities can be arranged: You can sail around the islands on a deluxe catamaran for example, or go fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, jet skiing, kite surfing, submarine scooter trips, stingray feeding etc. etc.
The views of this very special place get even better from up above, and a helicopter tour around Bora Bora can be another tremendously memorable experience, as can parachuting and parasailing, all of which can be organized at The Four Seasons.
As mentioned The Four Seasons is more family friendly than most resorts in Bora Bora and the Tamarii Kid’s Club can take them off your hands. There, there is an indoor playroom and an outdoor playground, while teenagers can enjoy supervised water sports in their own Chill Island Club. Educational activities can also be had for children, and for adults too; there is a resident marine biologist at The Four Seasons who does guided snorkeling tours for example.
WHAT OTHER GUESTS SAY:
“Amazing place. Friendly staff, beautiful villas, lots of activities to do, amazing food. Over 75 countries visited & this is the best place I’ve ever been to….”
“Wow, Four Seasons Bora Bora is absolute paradise. We stayed in an overwater bungalow for two nights and loved every second. From arrival, every little detail was done with care – from the boat ride across the lagoon from the airport, and being met by staff and taken by golf buggy to our bungalow. The bungalow itself is breathtaking, huge and well fitted out, with a beautiful deck and access straight into the water. We thought we’d never want to leave it but after exploring the resort we realized we were wrong. The resort has many complimentary activities which can keep you busy for days….”
