This paradise-inspired oasis is only a 10-minute boat ride from the airport and 15 minutes across the lagoon from the village of Vaitape. A member of the Leading Hotels of the World, the resort boasts authentic Polynesian style and architecture and certainly offers some of the most traditionally designed rooms and villas in Bora Bora. This resort is built as a traditional Polynesian home and enclosed in its own private garden. Each villa features a spacious bedroom area and en-suite bathroom with an indoor shower, as well as an outdoor shower, large sundeck area with plunge pool and gazebo. For families up to four, they will choose the garden pool villa, the largest room category with 871 square feet.
There are also the over-the-water-bungalows that are 667 square feet and split between a spacious bedroom area with an en-suite bathroom complete with a bathtub and separate shower, a furnished sundeck with gazebo and direct access to the lagoon, glass top bedside and coffee tables, as well as glass top by the bathtub. This is ideal for two adults and one child. It does not accommodate more than three people.
Onsite there are a handful of dining options, tons of water activities and water to swim in for days.

I first visited this resort in 2016 and since Bora Bora is such a remote location and also quite expensive, that was going to be a 'one off' visit. However it was such a wonderful experience I just had to return, which I did from 1 to 7 Nov 2019.
The resort is just as wonderful and spectacular now as it was back then. Also I cannot praise the staff highly enough as they are also first class.

Thank you so much for babysitting Kai during our stay in Bora Bora. It was great for us to have a few hours to be alone, with some relaxation and snorkeling. The moment I saw Maja at the door with her big bag of toys. I knew my son (30 months old) will be in a good hand. Maja managed to convince my son to play in the sand who is scared of sand. She was professional, caring and responsible. Highly recommended!
