The overall experience at Le Meridien Bora Bora was wonderful. The resort is beautifully laid out and impeccably groomed. The overwater bungalows are charming and the thrill of stepping out of your room into the aquamarine lagoon and luxuriating in warm tropical water cannot be underestimated. The resort facilities are great and most of them cost extra. The kayaking and snorkeling are no additional charge and there is an on-site turtle conservancy which is quite interesting to see. The food at the restaurant is solid, but it would be worthwhile considering some meals on the "main island" of Bora Bora to introduce some variety. The dinner is an entire evening with boat and van transportation in both directions.
The Le Meridien is not cheap. But the degree of sheer luxury and comfort makes it quite worthwhile. You are not going to solve the world's problems at this remote and improbably resort. But you just might forget about them for a week or so. The staff is uniformly friendly and the level of service is consistent and high. There is a fair amount of singing and music at the resort, but aside from the dramatic view of Mt. Otemanu, you could be just about anywhere. Internet access was not free, but it was reasonably robust (though for one day, it was completely broken).More
