Conrad Bora Bora Nui

OVERVIEW

Insider Tip

The Conrad Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa sits on Toopua Motu, an island in the lagoon just over a kilometre from the mainland. Unlike other motu, it is hilly and rocky and rises to over 100 metres. The summit of the hills are tumbled with grey volcanic boulders, remnants of what was once a volcano now sinking into the ocean floor. The top of the hills also provides spectacular views towards the main island and Mt Otemanu. Toopua Motu is also significant in the cultural life of local Polynesians, featuring prominently in many of their creation stories.

A full-service health spa features an adjoining air-conditioned fitness centre and unisex sauna and steam room. Three computer terminals, wireless Internet access (complimentary), a printer, fax machine, and small selection of books are available at a 24-hour library.

What to expect:

Holidaymakers and honeymooners from around the globe arrive at Conrad Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa by boat, since it is located on a rocky motu (lagoon island). Greeted by ukulele players, they disembark at an overwater reception area set over a natural aquarium where shoals of trumpet fish swim. Activities and receptions desks sit in shaded pavilions of natural woods, decorated with mother-of-pearl artworks. Guests receive a complimentary welcome drink and pastry. Across the water over a walkway, and just behind the beach, the resort's restaurants, bars, and lounges sit in Polynesian-style buildings surrounded by tropical gardens. Bungalows nestle on the hillside or overwater along an 800-metre white-sand beach. At night, spotlights on the hillside trees, through the gardens, and in the lagoon itself provide a romantic ambiance.
