Bora Bora is the super model of the South Pacific, where celebrities hang out by the jet loads. The legends, mysteries, and romance associated with the words “Bora Bora” bring an almost mystical presence to the island, but, at a hefty price tag.
Part of the allure has to be its almost unbelievable beauty thanks to a necklace of Coral and ‘Motu’s (small islands) encasing a lagoon with a mountain based central island as the centrepiece.
Two towering peaks of sheer black rock dominate the center of the island and make an impressive backdrop to an assortment of blue waters that will dazzle the eyes. Bora Bora’s lagoon is its most treasured feature, and allows the traveler many opportunities to experience it in a variety of ways. Windsurf, jetski, scuba dive, swim, bask in its warmth… the list goes on.
Bora Bora is truly an experience worth having. A wonderfully relaxing place to be as well as a great island for you to experience, your Bora Bora vacation will never be forgotten.
Accommodation on the island consists of around 10 hotels which are geared entirely to the wealthy and luxurious and all feature the popular Overwater Bungalow. The budget option of these hotels is the 3 star Matai Polynesia which is relatively affordable, whilst the luxurious end consists of a few 5 star options, most notably the St Regis (where the top end accommodation can cost as much as $15000 USD a night).
