Conrad Bora Bora Nui

Change is coming to Bora Bora

Bora Bora needs no introduction. Home to some of the most breathtakingly scenery on earth, along with some equally impressive hotels and resorts, it’s a dream destination for pretty much everyone. And when you take a look at some of the new additions to the hotel scene, it’ll be a dream for you too.

A new hotel player will soon join the exclusive list of properties that call Bora Bora home, as Conrad Hotels & Resorts prepares to take over the franchise for the Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa.

The property will undergo a multi-million dollar refurbishment before re-opening as the stunning Conrad Bora Bora Nui in early 2017 – the first Conrad hotel in Tahiti.

Located on Motu To’opua, an islet off the coast of Bora Bora, Conrad Bora Bora Nui will offer 29 tropical garden and beach villas and 86 overwater bungalows, including Bora Bora’s only double-storey Presidential Suites.

The resort will also feature a full-service spa, a kids club, mini-golf course, fitness centre and dining options including a modern take on a French Brasserie, a specialty beach restaurant serving Polynesian and Mediterranean cuisines, a swim-up pool bar and an overwater sunset bar and lounge.

The Intercontinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa, operated by Pacific Beachcomber, is also set to undertake renovations, constructing four new two-bedroom overwater villas with private pools.

Scheduled to begin in September and last for approximately 10 months, the work will also include the addition of swimming pools to 10 overwater villas in the south branch of the resort, as well as a general refresh of all villas.

Meanwhile, Le Meridien Bora Bora has just completed a refurbishment with a focus on refreshing its bungalows and food and beverage outlets, including a revamp of its picturesque Miki Miki and Pool bars.

Tahiti Tourisme Director Australia New Zealand Robert Thompson said while Bora Bora would always be one of the most sought after places to visit, these changes would make it even more appealing to holidaymakers.
