“Amazing family holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

I spent a long time on trip advisor researching our holiday and we were not disappointed. We are a family of four (with boys 6 and 3) and were nervous about going to a honeymoon destination with the boys, but we had the best time. We stayed 5 nights.
The things that made our holiday were:
- booking with a travel agent able to give extra perks like daily food credits, breakfast, free upgrade, late checkout, free night which made it more affordable.
- the layout of the bungalow which allowed for separate lounge area for boys, beautiful deck area to enjoy champagne on late in the day while boys chilled out with DVD.
- Beautiful pool
- Amazing kids club (free) with fantastic activities like fish feeding and treasure hunts. The location was brilliant right behind the pool so we could swim with boys then when they were tired they could be dropped off at the kids club and we could relax by pool. One of us stayed with our 3 year old who wasn't old enough to be left by himself but it still it felt like a break because he was entertained.
- I loved the beautiful lotions and suntan lotion left everywhere for use
- amazing breakfast
- had a great morning with Christopher on a snorkelling reef tour.
- absolutely amazing service

The layout of the resort means that you feel as if you have a little house and lots of privacy. The pool seems very quiet in the morning because I think everyone is enjoying their bungalow.

The views (from the pool especially) of Mount Onemanu are stunning. It really is as beautiful as the pictures say.

We would love to go back. You won't regret this. One piece of advice is take a suitcase of snacks and bottles of champagne/wine if you are a family. It helps reduce costs.

Room Tip: We had a beach bungalow and it was great because could swim (no current). Nice view of beach.

My husband and I just left there May 11th,2013 after spending two weeks. This place is so amazing. There was so much to do and the staff is incredible. The rooms are great and clean and if you needed anything they were right there to help you. The resort is so beautiful and the snorkeling and kayaking around the lagoon was so much fun. The staff was so helpful in helping us arrange actitives such as snorkeling with the stingrays and sharks and doing the wave runners.
The restuarants there had excellent food and the staff at the pool bar always went that extra mile and they were so nice and friendly. All the staff at the restuarants were great and would always remember our name.
I seriously could have stayed a lot longer. I wanted to cry when we left. This was my dream vacation for so many years and it lived up to all I imagined and more.

Just got back from my honeymoon, we had room 325. We stayed for 9days 8nights. We did the jet skiing tour, the snorkeling with stingrays and sharks, and sunset cruise.. All were def worth it, but the best one was the snorkeling with stingrays and sharks. My wife and I enjoy that's the best with Stephen our tour guide. Manuel helped us booked all our excursions. He was so knowledgable, and helpful. Breakfast at the Four Season was unbelievable, anything you can image they have for breakfast. Helene was a great waitress there. She remembered us, and greeted us each morning.. Sushi at the sunset bar was great!!

Having spent several months looking for the ultimate honeymoon destination, we came across the Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora. We stayed here for 7 nights in an over-water bungalow, having spent 7 nights previously in Moorea. Words cannot describe how amazing this place and resort is. The Four Seasons Bora Bora doesn't meet expectations, but totally exceeds them on every level. The accommodation, pool, food and level of service, truly exceptional. The staff were extremely attentive, but far from intrusive. Nothing was too much trouble and service with a smile.
This is by far the best hotel/location we have ever stayed. If you're looking for that first-class honeymoon, then go here!

Going to Bora Bora was a bucket list trip, so we chose the Four Seasons 3 nights 4th night free. This is truly a one of a kind in the world property--pictures just don't do it justice. The service exceeded our expectations, at check in, morning breakfast, and at the sunset bar.
We enjoyed a couples massage, and the hidden pool as well. Try the yoga on the deck at sunset, really alot of fun. Take a walk behind the resort to see and hear the ocean pound the reef.

Patricia at the sunset bar was extremely helpful. The beach bar is perfect for lunch and drinks, and if you are craving a starbucks--their version of a frappacino is quite good. Our over the water bungelow was clearly 3 times the size of anything at the other resorts.
From the pick up at the airport, to departure, the Four Seasons experience was fantastic.

Room Tip: Pick a view of the mountain--you won't regret it!

I had a woderful time @ this resort. The bungalows are like a hotel suite with a living room, cable sofa, The bathroom has a shower plus a separate whirlpool bathtub, and a separate master room with another plasma tv and a King bed. It also has a large deck balcony with two lounge chairs and a ladder to get in and out the beautiful water. The A/C works great and is on 24/7. We could have stayed in there all day. The resort is beautiful, it has three restaurants, a spa, two tennis courts. It is a perfect place for couples. The people were very friendly and the service was great. We rode jet skis around the island, went to the main town by boat, went into the pool. I highly reccomend this high end resort for a great couple vacation.

The Four Seasons in Bora Bora was the perfect place to honeymoon. The pictures online don't even do it justice until you get there. We stayed in the over water bungalows which were very spacious and extremely comfortable. We jumped into the clear blue ocean everyday from our balcony.

The food was amazing and the staff couldn't have been any nicer. This is a hotel we will come back for years to come to celebrate our anniversary.

Room Tip: Make sure your bungalow isn't too close to shore...if you are too close to shore the water is to...
