BORA BORA PEARL BEACH
RESORT & SPA

Our Resort Report

Our Thoughts on Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort & Spa, Motu Tevairoa, Bora Bora
Motu Tevairoa is a fairly big island compared to the majority of the islands which border the Bora Bora Lagoon – Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort is the only resort on the island and is located on the south-eastern corner facing Fa’anui Bay on the mainland with Mt Otemanu beyond.  As with all the islands around the Bora Bora Lagoon, you are only 5 minutes by boat off the mainland.  Access between the mainland and the island is by complimentary Resort Shuttle Boat and there are up to 19 scheduled shuttle boat services a day between 8:15am and 11:00pm.

The Resort is rated at Euro 4 Star and in our opinion probably rates another half star as the facilities and services are very good indeed. 

The Manea Spa and fitness centre is set in a very quiet section of the gardens, around 200 metres away from the Central facility and is a major attraction of this resort providing a very comprehensive range of spa treatments and massage as well as in-room massage if you prefer. 

In early 2018, Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort & Spa added a unique new feature - a solar-powered catamaran lagoon cruise boat, the "Okeanos Pearl". Okeanos Pearl provides romantic day and evening cruises on Bora Bora's spectacular lagoon - the absence of any motor noise added to the warm smiles of the crew, the fabulous Tahitian music, the fragrance of Tiari Tahiti flowers floating on the breeze and a chilled glass of wine all produce a very special ecperience.

We like the long list of complimentary activities on offer, such as the movie theatre, petanque, tennis court, mini-golf, games room with pool table, table tennis table, snorkelling gear, volleyball, kayaks and canoes.  There is also a huge list of optional (paid) activities too, everything from Scuba Dive to mountain climbing.  

There is a very pleasant “Friendly Polynesian” flavour to this place – everyone working there seems happy and pleased to see you. For a property with only 80 rooms it provides a good range of dining and entertainment options, and of course, for those staying longer than 2 or 3 days, the mainland restaurants are easy to access for an added dining option.  Full American Breakfast is included in the nightly tariff we offer.

      Temporary Resort Closure for Major Improvements
          Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort & Spa will close
                    01 December 2019 to 05 April 2020
Quoting the Resort:
“The Resort will undergo a complete renovation, however keeping the distinct style and architecture that gives Pearl Resorts of Tahiti’s hotels their soul and personality, something we truly value as a Polynesian hotel group. These investments will bring a new life to the Resort through the upgrade and transformation of the existing structures but also the increase of our room inventory with the addition of 28 overwater units.”

What Bora Bora Pearl Beach & Spa Say About Themselves:
"The BORA BORA PEARL BEACH RESORT & SPA, member of The Leading Hotels of the World, is located on MotuTevairoa facing the island of Bora Bora. It offers a place to luxuriate in the peace and tranquility of the magical surroundings with unsurpassed views on the world renowned Mount Otemanu.

This traditional Polynesian style hotel is located 10 minutes by private boat from the airport and 15 minutes from Vaitape, the main village of Bora Bora.

Beside the hotel’s overwater bungalows is a coral nursery called To’ANui. Since the creation of the nursery more than 70 species of fish have settled and developed in this unique environment. The park allows a colony of 4000 corals to regenerate in perfect ecological conditions. Our guests can freely discover this unique place (snorkeling) and live an unforgettable experience.

Your Accommodation Options
The Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort & Spa offers a wonderful range of accommodation options which make a decision on which one best suits individual requirements quite a challenge – let’s try to assist you. 

Of the 80 accommodation units, 30 are land-based and 50 are built out over the Bora Bora Lagoon.  The land-based bungalows and suites are the slightly cheaper option but don’t be fooled into thinking they are a second-best option as all the accommodation at this resort is a high standard and each one has unique features. 

All 20 of the Garden Pool Villas are, as the name suggests, located in the extensive resort gardens, handy to the magnificent Manea Spa, the tennis court, the lobby, restaurants, swimming pool and a pleasant interior lake. They offer a large private courtyard garden (which the bedroom opens out to) which provides for superb indoor/outdoor living comprising extensive decking with separate furnished open and roof-shaded areas for relaxing, as well as a private plunge pool.  The bathroom is on the back of the Pool Suite and has its own private courtyard with indoor/outdoor shower.  

The 10 Otemanu Beach Suites with Jacuzzi are quite different and very special.  Located right on the beach with the bedroom and lounge facing the lagoon and framed on one side, (but not overwhelmed) by the Overwater Bungalows. Each Beach Suite offers a view out towards romantic Mt Otemanu on “the mainland”. Guests literally step straight out of their lounge on to the beach. Beach Suites have an amazing private rear courtyard which opens behind the bedroom to a big bathroom to one side with an indoor/outdoor shower and extensive private sundecks complete with Jacuzzi Pool.

The 4 categories of Overwater Bungalows and Overwater Suites are all the same layout and high standard and there isn’t a dramatic price differential between them.  What difference there is between the categories is due to their location along the overwater pontoons and their outlook. The “Overwater Bungalow” units are generally closest to the land and provide views up the lagoon. The Lagoon Premium Overwater Suites are located further out on the lagoon and provide extensive views down the lagoon. The Otemanu View Overwater Suites are even further out along the pontoon and have great views over to Mt Otemanu and the “End of Pontoon Overwater Suites are just that – a group of 7 suites right at the end of three of the pontoons and this gives guests staying in this category totally unhindered views out over the lagoon and the mountain and the privacy of virtually no passing foot traffic on the boardwalk.

All bungalows and suites are air-conditioned as well as having ceiling fans and flow-through ventilation.  All are built in a modern Polynesian style with light-coloured walls and vaulted ceilings with a thatched roof, polished wooden plank floor and a spacious bathroom.  There is very little difference in bedding configurations and maximum occupancy policies between the various accommodation types, the main difference being that in Garden Pool Villas and Otemanu View Beach Suites with Jacuzzi allow a single rollaway bed to be added which makes them an ideal choice for a family comprising 2 adults and 2 children.
