There are a variety of accommodations to choose from on Bora Bora, ranging from luxury resorts to camping. Over-water bungalows, perched above the gentle waters of the lagoon, offer visitors a thrilling change of pace from a standard hotel room. At the Intercontinental Le Moana Resort, guests can watch tropical fish swim beneath their glass coffee tables, splash into the lagoon for a bout of snorkeling from their private sun deck, and let the sound of gentle waves lull them to sleep each night. Although more expensive than the rooms that can be had on land, an over-water bungalow allows you the opportunity to experience the beauty and breezes of Bora Bora every moment of your stay.
Bora Bora offers a delicious assortment of dining options, especially for those who love seafood and tropical fruit. Most hotels and restaurants offer breakfast buffets that include popular French, Japanese, and American foods as well as a selection of fresh pineapple, coconut, papaya, and other seasonal produce. Be sure to try the Tahitian Pomelo, or pamplemousse. In appearance, it resembles a greenish grapefruit, but it tastes like a sweet lime.
For dinner, don't hesitate to venture off your all inclusive resort. Most restaurants will pick you up (either for free or for a small fee), and whisk you off for a night of dining. Many visitors enjoy a meal at the iconic Bloody Mary's, where, upon arrival, you can choose your entree from a variety of freshly caught seafoods and meats laid out on ice. If you are staying on the main island of Bora Bora, you can walk or bicycle to nearby eateries. L'Appetisserie, located near the port of Vaitape, offers an affordable selection of sandwiches, pizza, and pastries. Matira Bar and Restaurant, an easy stroll from Matira Point, offers mid-price Cantonese entrees and a lovely view of the lagoon.
An assortment of excursions awaits in Bora Bora. A Safari Adventure on a 4-wheel drive vehicle will take you into the interior of the main island.
