“First Class Paradise Found at the Four Seasons”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Bora Bora is breathtaking and so is the Four Seasons. We had a bit of wind a coupe of days, but other than that it was perfect. The staff made us feel very welcome. When you travel with children you want your child to feel special, and they went the extra mile to to make my son happy. We appreciated that very much. Every employee was extra kind and helpful, just what you would expect at a Four Seasons Resort. One thing that I'm sure can't be helped is the lack of variety of food. We stayed at the resort 10 days and even though the food was good I craved more variety. I can only imagine how hard it is to get goods to Bora Bora, so I'm not complaining, just wishing. However, we will be back. Thank you Four Seasons!

Wow! Amazing! Unmatched!
Words cannot describe the wondrous beauty that is The Island of Bora Bora!! The Four Seasons is the Perfect Pearl amidst all resorts!! Despite one snafu at the beginning of our Honeymoon everything was Perfect!! ( They picked us up a half hour late!!) We loved the Personalized service and genuine care of the staff and management! Special shout out to Pierre(Food & Beverage Manager)-his friendliness and knowledgeable expertise about the resort and island made it more wonderful!! Our highlights:

Pure snorkeling with Fabien recommended by Four Seasons.It was Awesome besides swimming with exotic fish we saw A pod Of dolphins and Heard Humpback whales thru a microphone placed underwater!!

Le Merdian Turtle Swim-we had to wait for them to pick us up but eventually our resort sent us over ...The 15 min swim with 7 green sea turtles amongst many beautiful fish was so cool. After the instructor fed the turtles! It was soo fun!

Vaitape-Complimentary shuttle from Four Seasons weekdays to the nearby town. Small and simple town with a few restaurants . The best shop for Pearls was Pearla. Expensive showcase pieces were eye catching! The quality was equivalent to The pearls in The gift shop at Four Seasons.

Unfortunately we missed out on Deep Sea Fishing...:( ...an excuse for Next Time!! People caught
50lb Spearfish and 10lb tuna...

The Spa was so beautiful and relaxing!! We experienced the Polynesian massage 50 minutes and the Balinese Massage for 50 min. There was a hot tub to enjoy while waiting in each women's and men's locker rooms.

We were blown away about our OVB!! it was about 1000sq ft with 2 A/C 's . It was modern and clean and so beautiful !! All OWB are windy!! In fact year round it's windy!10-20 mile winds when we were there!

The resort was cleaned daily and immaculate ! Our other favorite was the Lagoon/Teen Island!! The Best place for Snorkeling!! Very well stocked with over 100 species of saltwater fish!! We fed them French Baguettes from breakfast and they came running and followed well after we were done!! Soo cute!! Varieties of Threadfin butterflyfish,sergeant majors, mullets, Adult Batfish, Groupers, Damselfish, Black Tangs, Parrotfish...

Many families, Honeymooners, and couples were here from all over the world!! Many activities for kids too!! Complimentary jet skis, Stand up Paddles, And Kayaks were available.
The Beaches were clean and not full even though they were sold out!! Service was quick at every restaurant!!

The Food: The Breakfast Buffet was amazing with every delicious choice possible!! Fresh fruit, Local island desserts, Salads, smoked salmon,smoked swordfish, smoked marlin, cereals, exotic cheeses, fresh croissants, muffins, cookies, coconut juice in the coconuts,fresh eggs station, breads, even Japanese miso soup! And many Fresh juices daily from the Juicer!! Plus complimentary juices and Lavazza Coffee!

Arii Moana: We loved the menu and dessert! Fresh and delicious we recommend everything!!
Sunset Bar: We had some hit or miss meals but the sushi was fresh! The Sunset View amazing!
Tere Nui: The Grill Night was awesome!! Some varieties: Lamb chops, steak, salmon, mahi mahi, pork ribs, and roasted veggies, salad bar, Raw red tuna sashimi, amongst many others... Dessert was fancy : Strawberry napoleons, peanut butter chocolate cake, St Honore cake, Pecan pie, etc.
Pool Bar: We loved everything! Especially the Steak Frites!! And Hinano Beer! Periodically, the staff would come around and give out fresh fruit, cold fresh water, cold towels infused with essence of Gardenias, and small virgin fruit slushees!!

Expect the royal treatment and expenses associated with it and you will not be shocked!!!

Remember your camera you will make memories that will last for two lifetimes!!!

We hope next time we go it will be as wonderful as we just experienced!!

Room Tip: 100-200's OWB closest to restaurants and pool.

This place is the best holiday location on the planet no doubt. Everything about the FS Bora Bora is of the highest quality and standard although they probably need to rethink the romantic dinner on the beach a little as you dont get the sunset (obscured by the sunset bar). That aside this truly is the experience of a lifetime and I would strongly advocate you go if you have the chance. You have to see it to believe it.

Room Tip: I'd guess all the rooms are pretty good - we were in 326 and very happy.

I don't know what to say - it was the best 6 days (after the wedding day of course) of our lives. We were treated like royalty, service was impeccable. The over water bungalows have the wow factor that you dream of, the food was great, the happy hours were even better (they make the best girly cocktails!). Great atmosphere, awesome gym, beautiful surroundings - I didn't want to leave. The attention to detail was amazing - we will be saving the pennies to go back for an anniversary, the entire stay was perfect!

what a beautiful place.
we had our wedding ceremony here on the beach
stuff are very friendly and professional.
often refer to you by name, very polite and helpful.
once a day there is complementary shuttle boat to main island where you can do some shopping for your tahitian pearl etc
at night you can also take a shuttle boat with cost to go to restaurants on island.
Cindy the wedding planner was very nice and helpful , we have communicated through emails until now and we finally met :) she made our wedidng something memorable.
siti at the spa is very helpful and fun to be with,
i spent numerous hours at the spa preparing for my ceremony but never was bored with her, and her make up and hair art, just amazing.
i have been to alot of nice hair salons in LA, Miami , NYC but her work was nothing less .
brekfast was almost always the same menu but juice of the day changes everyday.
we stayed at mountain view over the water bangalow and we loved the view from our room.
we even saw sting rays under our bangalows!
woudl definitely refcoomend to anyone who is thinking of staying in bora bora :)

Room Tip: choose a overwater bungalow with mountain view

I just have to say that Four Seasons is one of the BEST resorts I have ever stayed at. The quality of customer service exceeded my every expectation. I am a Human Resource professional and am so thrilled to see that this type of customer service still exists. I would love to take the Four Seasons approach and teach it around the world to other resorts and the like. The staff were so attentive from day one and showed a level of respect and attentiveness throughout our stay. One staff member even knew my last name and bid me a good day. The level or respect and response to needs again exceeded my expectation. My husband and I went with another couple recently and stayed 4 days. Not enough to enjoy the beauty and excellence the hotel has to offer. The amenities are awesome and the grounds are impeccable. The over water bungalow a dream. Lastly, on our last day we were told that our checkout would be extended beyond 12noon, but then they had to retract because they realized they made a mistake. How did they amend their error...they provided us all with a huge beach side villa at no extra cost. Oh and we were back on the boat to return home, the entire staff at the front desk bid us adieu. I felt as if I were leaving family members!!!!! Again it exceeds my every expectation and I plan on visiting other Four Seasons throughout the world as I move on through my journeys. Bravo Four Seasons!!!! Keep up the great work.

Went for our honeymoon from may 30-June 4, 2012. I have to say if anyone is fortunate enough to go here, do not miss your opportunity. We stayed in room 319 a lagoon view bungalow and found heaven. They arrange all activities and reservations for you. I'll never forget how cool Jacques, our waiter at arii moana was. Faustina was such a sweetheart when they picked us up at the airport. Everything you've ever dreamed of is at the Four Seasons Bora Bora and my wife and I committed to going back for our 10-year anniversary. Eight and a half more years. We can't wait!! Thank you FS Bora Bora for being the greatest place on Earth!!
