Bora Bora is an island of majesty and adventure, from volcanic craters to emerald jungle canopies, radiant exotic flowers and glistening waters ranging from turquoise to indigo. The Central market in Vaitape glows with the colors of tropical fruits, highlighting mango, guava, and pineapple. The scent of creamy banana drifts down the aisles. The upper floor contains pearl vendors offering insight into the sheen and prestige of the precious stone. Fishermen showcase their daily catch for passersby, and the aroma of the ocean remains prevalent along the coastal road.
Your flight lands at Bora Bora Airport, where your private transfer greets you upon your arrival. You take a boat across the shimmering crystal clear and indigo waters of the celebrated lagoon to reach the secluded luxury of your five-star accommodation. You settle into the comforts of an iconic overwater bungalow. The thatched roof connects the traditional culture and style of the island with contemporary luxuries. You have a view to the east and the basalt peak of Mount Otemanu. A raised wooden walkway connects your suite to the hotel along the island shores.
Coconut palms shade the infinity pool looking out to the bungalows. After getting acquainted with your hotel grounds, you return to the shores of Bora Bora for an introduction to the historical sites along the east coast. At Marae Aehautai, you find one of the oldest temples on the island, dating back more than a millennium. The stone slab marks the base of the temple grounds in view of the soaring peak of Mount Otemanu. In the distance, your guide points to the outlines of Raiatea and Taha’a Islands.
