We were there Sept. 8 thru Sept. 15, it was an absolute dream. We had a premium over the water bungalow facing Mt. Otemanu, to wake up to that view every morning for that week was breath taking. We had a glassed coffee table that had its own reef underneath our bungalow that attracted just about every beautiful tropical fish day and night. Our bungalow was cleaned every morning. I highly recommend it, if your going that far and spending that kind of money its well worth it, plus their are less mosquitos over the water than on land.
The water was amazing! I have never seen such beautiful water, with different shades of green, teals and blues. We snorkeled just about everyday, they have their own coral nursery that is well maintained, that attracts so many fish. I loved it and so did my husband, he could not get me out of the water. It was very quiet, relaxing and peaceful. Many of the locals would kayak to work from the main land, there were never loud boats or jets skis going by. It was very calm.
The staff were wonderful, happy, smiling, friendly and extremely helpful. Their breakfast buffet in the resort was great with many variety to choose from. We had dinner their too in their restaurants, and every meal was delicious, it was a bit spendy but well worth it, what do you expect it is "Bora Bora" and we knew it was not going to be cheap. The drinks were great too at the resort. We did go to the "talked about" Bloody Mary's, it was nice, romantic, good and no so spendy as we heard. We met wonderful couples who shuttled with us from our resort to the restaurant.
We also booked a couples massage in their spa, a "traditional Polynesian massage", it was heaven. We actually fell asleep 10 min into the massage, and it was inexpensive. The resort offers many activities to choose from and excursions. We really just stayed around the resort, walked on the beach and stayed in our bungalow, we did not want to plan too many activities, that's not why we went, we went to relax and enjoy our selves. We did just that! I recommend taking your own snorkle gear, resort offers them too but like me I was snorkeling everyday and wanted them on hand, otherwise you have to walk to the resort and get them, which is fine to.
While we were in Vaitape (main land) we went shopping, there is only one road that goes around the island, we didn't get to go all the way around just to the shops, it was very traditional, no updates or modern, maybe a store or two but I liked it that way. Many locals had homemade items, and there was no hassling trying to get you to buy anything. People were very friendly and laid back.
Everyone there made our 10 year anniversay very memorable. We were sad to go knowing we had to return to our busy lives again but Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort was truly a piece of paradise, and we will return.
