Our Resort Report

As at 18 Jan 2022 - Le Meridien Bora Bora is

OUR Thoughts on Le Meridien Bora Bora, Motu Tape, Bora Bora, French Polynesia.
Le Meridien Bora Bora's latest refurbishment was completed in April 2016. Located on the lagoon island “Motu Tape”, with the St Regis Bora Bora off to one side and InterContinental Bora Bora and Thalasso Spa off the other side, this hotel has one of the best views in Bora Bora.  As you arrive on the Resort’s airport transfer boat, you come in through the two enfolding arms of Overwater Bungalows to the arrival pontoon.  From there guests are welcomed and taken to the Front Desk – it’s at this point that the difference between Le Meridien Bora Bora and most other Bora Bora resorts becomes obvious.

The central complex of Le Meridien Bora Bora sits on a pure white-sand island facing the Bora Bora lagoon on one side and a beautiful “interior lagoon” on the other.  The interior lagoon is like a giant natural horizon swimming pool surrounded by glorious beaches.  Encircling and overlooking the interior lagoon is the Le Tipanie Restaurant, a row of Beach Bungalows, the Wedding Chapel, the Turtle Sanctuary, the Beach Bungalows and the One and Two Bedroom Pool Beach Villas. The Fitness Centre and the Spa are close by.  The ocean is behind and the Overwater Bungalows on the main lagoon are ahead. What all this means is that depending on your mood at the time, guests staying at Le Meridien Bora Bora, can choose between either enjoying the beaches, facilities and dining services facing out to Bora Bora’s main lagoon or the beaches facing towards the private interior lagoon.

The resort offers a selection of Restaurants, Le Tipanie is the main restaurant open for breakfast, lunch & dinner (a theme dinner every night open 6.30pm-9.30pm) or Tipanie snacks (light a la carte, open 6.30pm-11pm). Te Ava (located near the pool, with a sand floor, open 11.30am-3.00pm) offers casual lunches of salads, grilled fish & meat and an a la carte selection. By night Te Ava changes to La Trattoria (open 6.30pm-9.30pm), an Italian inspired a la carte menu. The Miki Miki Bar offers cocktails and beverages daily.

Your Accommodation Options
Le Meridien Bora Bora offers an excellent range of accommodation options including both Bungalows and Villas.  As is the case with most Bora Bora resorts, there is a range of overwater bungalows which vary in price depending on their location along the overwater piers and the views enjoyed from each one.  Normally, the greater distance off-shore a bungalow is located, the greater the tariff.

Le Meridien Bora Bora offers the unusual option of an overwater-style bungalow which is at the land end of a pier before the pier extends out over the deep waters of the lagoon – these bungalows are known as “Classic Bungalows” and are the least expensive accommodation option at this resort.  A further group of bungalows is located entirely on the beach facing the beautiful Inner Lagoon and very handy to the restaurants, pool, etc. These bungalows are known as “Beach Bungalows” and are an ideal choice for those people who may wish to be closer to the resort’s restaurants, lobby etc. All Bungalows (as distinct from the “Villas”) are open-plan studio-style.

Most overwater bungalows at Bora Bora’s resorts provide an in-floor viewing window to the lagoon below.  Le Meridien’s Overwater Bungalows lagoon-viewing windows are huge in comparison to most and are certainly a great feature. Bungalow occupants get a superb view of the marine life of the lagoon from inside their guest room and the sight of the passing parade of marine life down in the lagoon from these larger viewing windows is very relaxing and quite mesmerising.

The accommodation options at Le Meridien Bora Bora is completed by the One and Two Bedroom Pool Beach Villas which, like the Beach Bungalows, are located centrally on the beach facing the Inner lagoon with views to Mt Otemanu on Bora Bora’s central island mainland. 

Room Categories (In ascending order of tariff)
Bullet Classic Bungalows:
Located at the beginning of the Overwater Bungalow pontoons, Classic Bungalows are equipped in the same way as overwater bungalows but without the glass floor or direct access to the lagoon, this is due to the shallow depth of the lagoon water so close to the beach.
