Le Méridien Bora Bora was one of the first on the over-water scene in Bora Bora, which explains its prime location. Sitting on the northern tip of an atoll-like islet stretching 10 kilometers along the southeastern side of the outer reef, the resort ensures marvelous views of Mt Otemanu.
The property is also famed for its seawater-fed, lake like lagoon, in which you can swim with endangered sea turtles, bred in the lagoon as a part of the resort’s award-winning preservation program.
Of the 100 identical bungalows, 85 are built overwater mostly with views across the lagoon. The overwater bungalows are notable for the huge glass panels in the floor, from where you can see the colourful marine life below. The outdoor balcony is a relaxing space to observe lagoon activity and the lower deck is ideal for slipping into the clear blue waters.
Dotted around the curve of the shallow lagoon with spectacular views to Bora Bora are 18 beach bungalows sitting on ivory sand amongst tropical gardens and under the shade of coconut palms. Step from your bungalow deck onto the soft sand and down into the lagoon. Each bungalow offers its own private beach, with deck chairs and hammocks to laze the days away. These bungalows are well suited to Mum & Dad and two small children who enjoy a relaxed atmosphere.
Le Méridien is family friendly and whilst there is no dedicated kids club, there is a selection of activities to keep the kids occupied, a playground, kid-sized windsurf boards, and snorkelling equipment for two and older.
The main beach area with its striking white sand is the hub of resort activities; jet-skiing, catamaran cruise, lagoonarium, parasailing, water-skiing, shark and ray feeding, deep-sea fishing and aqua safaris. Close by is the infinity pool with picture perfect views to Bora Bora.
Dining at Le Méridien Bora Bora is a casual affair with the restaurant and bars strategically placed to take advantage of that special view; overlooking the resort’s interior lagoon, poolside with feet in the sand and the Miki Miki Bar is designed as a prow of a ship, pointing toward Mount Otemanu. It is a unique setting in which to savour a house cocktail while watching the overwhelming beauty of the sunset across the lagoon.
The resort offers a combination of bungalows and villa suites, from poolside villas to romantic overwater bungalows with glass floor and expansive views.
