Four Seasons is worth every penny spent. From the time you arrive at the Bora Bora airport, you are welcomed by the Four Seasons staff and you are transported into their ferry after they pick up your luggage for you. As soon as you arrive in Four Seasons, you are able to check in 1 minute and then you are straight taken into your overwater bungalow in golf cart. We did not have to wait even a minute to be taken into our bungalow. The staff is so friendly and accommodate to every need and demand you have! The bungalows are out of this world! Be prepared to be blown away by the size, decor, furnishings, and I could go on and on. There are two entrances to the huge deck which is super cool and the views from each of the water bungalows are amazing! You will not be disappointed no matter which bungalow you are in! We were at the beach view bungalow since we did not want deep water and we loved the location and water depth (the furthest beach bungalow is not more than 5.5 feet). We saw the sunrise from our bungalow each morning which was breathtaking. The sunsets which you can see from the walkway is equally breathtaking. Dont waste your money for the mountain view bungalow - trust me you wont be missing out on much because you can see Mt Otemanu from the walkway anytime you want! That's what we did, as soon as we stepped out of our bungalow, we had a breathtaking view of Mt Otemanu right outside where we took million pics! I loved the soaking tub in the bungalow - so huge and you get a view of the lagoon right from there. The activities at this resort were so awesome as well: from kayaking to stand up paddle boarding to peddle boating. You can use these anytime for free and they are really fun! We did the jet ski excursion (booked it through four seasons for which you dont have much choice for) with reasonable pricing (was 175 bucks for one jetski which me and my husband shared) and we did the circle island tour with that and stopped at a spot where the water was so gorgeous and clear! Loved it! The guide was awesome! We also did the semi private shark and ray feeding excursion (semi private means only with people from four seasons and is slight more priced than the shared one) and it was an unforgettable experience! Trust me, you dont want to miss this! It doesnt matter if you cant swim because you can wear the life jacket and go. The first sport for stingray feeding was on shallow water anyway. The snorkeling over the barrier reef is GORGEOUS - i even saw a big fat eel there! Then comes with sharks... it was very scary at first but soon as you get into the water, it's not a big deal at all! The sharks were way down below anyway and the huge lemon shark was gorgeous! Amazing experience! Highly recommended. I loved both of the excursions. The spa is mindblowing in four seasons! We both had massages there (i had the kavelia haven one) and i felt so rejuvenated afterwards. Get the polynesian massage there - it's unbelievable! You will feel like butter afterwards. The oils are sooo nice and pleasant to smell. Dont forget to try the steam room and the jacuzzi - AWESOME! I loved the smell of the oil even in the steam room and the jacuzzi faces a beautiful lagoon on the women's side - you can try these amenities in the spa anytime for free.
We booked with Tiffany from South Seas Adventures: highly highly highly recommend her for any trip in the South Pacific. She is awesome and she will share her experiences of the islands with you and give you great tips and hints and make perfect arrangements!
TIPS: If you can get AirFrance, pick that over Air Tahiti Nui because Air Tahiti Nui is officially the worst flight i have been on - the seats are rock hard and the service sucks. Skip even one night in Tahiti (Papeete) as Tahiti sucks. We went straight to Moorea and then Bora Bora and it was the best trip of my life! Do the snorkeling in one of the lagoons in Four Seasons - feed the fish there, great experience. Try the Spa for sure. Go to Vaitape (inner town of bora bora) at least once to visit St James restaurant - was great and reasonably priced. See Matira beach at least once.
