Rohotu Fare is the combination of all things rare and incredible. Before you arrive at your bungalow, you will be lucky enough to meet Nir, the owner of the property and, in all of our experience, the most accommodating, friendly, unbelievable host that has ever existed. To say that Nir made our entire experience in Bora Bora (both while we stayed at Rohotu Fare and another location) what it was is an understatement. He went out of his way daily for us and assisted us in making our stay absolutely amazing.
As you walk to your open air bungalow, your anticipation will mount as you view all of the other beauty around you. Walking on the cobblestone path through the jungle, passing birds brought in from Namibia, viewing the library that overlooks the water (with a hammock for your use), and seeing the gorgeous Bay below, you can only imagine what your bungalow will look like. And then, when you get to your bungalow, you will be blown away. You walk in to the kitchen area. It is fully stocked with everything you could want to make your stay easier. The bathroom is off to the side. The "tiled" shower floor is surrounded by lush trees and vegetation; it makes you feel like a god / goodess as you shower! The water comes through the hands of a gorgeous and seductive statue and all the while, you hear the birds chirpping. The bedroom, too, is luxurious. The bed is a romantic four poster bed. When you open the double doors to your porch, you can lay in the bed and see glimpses of the beautiful bay. Or, sit outside on your gorgeous teak porch at night while you share a glass of wine and look at the mountains and the water. It really cannot get much better than this.
The location is also ideal. Nir provides you with bicycles so that you can get around the island. It is a 15 minute bike ride to Matira, the most incredible beach that exists. It is also a 15 minute bike ride into town in the event that you want to do a bit of shopping, go to the bank, or purchase groceries. Nir also arranges for a free shuttle to pick you up at Rohotu if and when you wish to go to dinner at night. The location and the help of Nir makes everything easy.
We hesitated to write this review because we want Rohotu to remain our little secret! But, it is too exquisite and too incredible a place for everyone not to visit. You will not be disappointed. If you are looking for a unique experience where relaxation is mandatory, Rohotu is it. You can literally sit in the lounge chair on your porch and listen to the sounds of the island. If you do not know how to enjoy peacefulness and tranquility - to take a break from your cell phone and computer - this is the place to learn how to do it-however, there is wi-fi for email to home. And you will not regret it. There is no better experience and no better host than Rohotu Fare and Nir and we cannot encourage you strongly enough to go there!!
