All though this is not an "overwater" experience. these bungalows are located directly on Matira Beach where the waters are warm and calm. The bungalows are a bit rustic but clean and a great place to enjoy beautiful quiet walks in the AM. Check out Lucky House pizzeria out front,

On arrival you receive a bottle of wine and a fruit basket in your room, which is lovely. We stayed in an over water bungalow (number 107) which was stunning. It was one of the best locations and right at the end of the boardwalk. The room while being basic, was clean and had everything you could need. The underwater... More

Ended our Tahiti vacation in Bora Bora and found the best location, Matira Beach, and the best place to stay, Hotel Matira. From the moment we arrived, Miranda made us feel welcome and at home. Her sunny smile and wonderful service started our trip here on a very pleasant note! And it was lovely having her deliver a fresh breakfast... More

We needed to spend just one night in Bora Bora, arriving in the evening and waiting for embarching on a sail ship the day after. We stayed in this hotel and, for the very few time we stayed, it seems very good: perfect location with cozy and spacious bungalows on a garden in front of the beautiful Matira beach. The... More

The Good - Matira is a good value for the money on Bora Bora, which is prohibitively expensive and really not that nice of a place compared to other islands in French Polynesia. The rooms are basic, clean and very sizable with a good location on Matira Beach. Several restaurants are within easy walking distance. The beach is used by... More

Thanks Miranda for our stay. Miranda is a wonderful and cheerful host. She is the one also bringing you a flowery breakfast tray in the morning. Wonderful. The bungalows are large and nicely decorated. It is a shame The terrace and chairs are 'burn' by the sun as visually it would be even better. The hotel is on the nicest... More

We spent four unforgettable nights in this little paradise. The Hotel is on the Matira Beach, the most beautiful beach of Bora Bora from where you can admire wonderful sunsets. The bungalows are located in a very beautiful garden among hibiscus and tiare. Big and nicely curated they have two queen beds and private bathroom. If you book one close... More
