What makes this resort so special and so different from the others is its location in relation to the main island of Bora Bora. Built around a sacred and legendary cove of white sand and majestic lava rock, the resort rises above what James Michener called “the most beautiful lagoon in the world.” Unlike others with a view to Bora Bora, here the skyline meets the turquoise lagoon and the two blend beautifully to create one endless horizon.
Conrad Bora Bora Nui’s suites are situated among palm trees on a terraced hillside overlooking the resort’s private cove and the lagoon beyond. The spa is housed on the hilltop with spectacular panoramic views of Bora Bora’s famous Mt. Otemanu and the islands of Taha’a and Raiatea.
The open-air treatment pavilions are built into the top of the black lava hill. Each has its own Jacuzzi for two and overlooks the resort’s 16 acres. Guests can also choose to reserve a Hillside Spa Villa and receive spa treatments in-villa.
Of the 120 spacious suites, over 80 are overwater. An inviting four-poster bed dominates the sumptuously decorated spacious interiors. A cream billowing canopy over the bed adds a dreamy, romantic touch to the space.
Two overwater duplex villas are the envy of the lagoon. With a living room, two bedrooms, outdoor lap pool, and spa treatment room on the second level these duplex villas are perfect for families and groups.
Rattan pieces, hand-printed tapa cloths, and chandeliers made from highly polished oyster shells add an island touch. The large Italian marble bathrooms are a bright contrast to the living areas. Viewing panels to the marine life below line the bathtub. Full-length doors lead to an outdoor deck equipped with day beds and ample space for dining, chatting, and snoozing.
Overall the atmosphere at this resort is relaxing and quietly refined. Conrad Bora Bora Nui is a large resort, however, it cleverly retains a feeling of exclusivity and relative emptiness, even when the occupancy is high. During the day guests are reluctant to leave their villas. In the evening buggies quietly whisk guests to the heart of the resort; the bar and dining spots gently lit with flaming Polynesian torches create a hint of South Pacific. Dining at Bora Bora Nui can be as casual or smart as you wish.
Accommodations boast contemporary Polynesian décor and are thoughtfully designed around Bora Bora’s key feature – the lagoon. Enjoy breathtaking views from the expansive private terrace of your Suite, or lounge in comfortable catamaran nets directly above the lagoon in an Overwater Villa.
Conrad Bora Bora Nui offers a dazzling range of dining options on the property from five-star epicurean feasts to laidback lounges.
