Auf mehrfachen Wunsch: Ihr wollt Bora Bora… ihr kriegt Bora Bora :-)

Ein erloschener Vulkan inmitten einer der schönsten Lagunen der Welt, das ist Bora Bora, die “Perle des Pazifiks”, die Trauminsel schlechthin. Drei Berge bilden ihre stolze Silhouette, dessen höchster der 727 m hohe Otemanu ist, dicht gefolgt vom sagenumwobenen Pahia.

Die Insel rühmt sich auch ihrer einstigen ausgeführten Kriegszüge und ihre ehemalige Herrschaft über Raiatea, seit jeher ihre Rivalin. Die großzügige Natur schenkt der Insel eine Lagune glasklaren Wassers von sagenhafter Schönheit, gesäumt von einer Kette kleiner, paradiesischer Inseln. 

Die Anziehungskraft Bora Boras ist bis heute ungebrochen. Viele Maler, Schriftsteller, Philosophen und Genießer folgen auch heute noch den Spuren von Alain Gerbault, Herman Melville oder Paul-Emile Victor.

Bora Bora

The most famous of French Polynesia’s Leeward Islands, Bora Bora is the quintessential tropical paradise. Volcanic in origin, it is surrounded by sand-fringed motus (small islets) on an outer coral reef that encloses a turquoise lagoon. With only one navigable pass, the crystal-clear lagoon is calm, warm and relatively shallow. At 727 metres (2,385 feet), Mount Otemanu towers over the main island. Next to it, the more rounded Mount Pahia stands at 658 metres (2,159 feet).Settled by Polynesians around AD 900, French Polynesia was discovered by Europeans in the 16th century. For centuries, the French and English vied for the possession of Tahiti and its archipelago. A French colony since 1884, Bora Bora became an overseas territory in 1946. Its unequalled beauty has drawn artists and writers – perhaps most famously, author James A. Michener declared it the most beautiful island in the world. Today, most of Bora Bora’s 4,650 inhabitants live on a thin, flat coastal strip, many around the small port of Vaitape.

Le Meridien Bora Bora - The Overwater Bungalows Deliver a Gorgeous View of the Iconic Mount Otemanu

Le Méridien Bora Bora is the perfect blend of French chic and Polynesian charisma. Located on the northern tip of Motu Piti A’au, a small islet that sits along the eastern coral reef, the resort faces the main island of Bora Bora and delivers a gorgeous view of the iconic Mount Otemanu. The overwater bungalows, which make up the majority of guest accommodations at the hotel, feature the largest glass floors of any other resort in French Polynesia. There is also a selection of beach bungalows and private pool villas better suited for families.

Home to the famed Turtle Sanctuary, Le Méridien Bora Bora is a true friend to the environment. The hotel features an interior lagoon where it provides protection and care for endangered sea turtles. Nearby is also an interactive touch pool filled with hermit crabs, sea cucumbers, starfish and clams, meaning the kids can enjoy a fun and safe marine biology experience during your stay. Another main attraction at the resort is the Miki Miki Bar; designed to resemble the prow of a ship, it points straight toward Mount Otemanu and provides the ideal place for sunset cocktails.
