Conrad Hotels and Resorts has welcomed guests to Conrad Bora Bora Nui, the destination’s first five-star resort to debut in 10 years. Conrad’s first property in French Polynesia is ideally located in a private cove on Motu To’opua, a small islet off the coast of Bora Bora.
The beachfront property features 114 guest rooms, including 28 tropical garden and beach villas and 86 overwater bungalows, as well as the Presidential Villas, Bora Bora’s only two-storey overwater accommodations.
The new resort blends Tahitian history and legend with modern design and amenities. Dining concepts include an overwater lounge and swim-up pool bar serving international cuisine, while the full-service Hina Spa offers an indulgent oasis with seven indoor treatment rooms and one open-air space overlooking the lagoon.
The resort also features an expansive infinity pool, Kids Club, mini-golf course, fitness centre, retail spaces and complimentary activities such as kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, stand up paddle boarding and sight-seeing boat tours. The exclusive private islet of Motu Tapu, located a short boat ride away, is ideal for intimate events and romantic dinners for two.
The resort tapped renowned international design firm BLINK Design Group and Bangkok-based interior design firm P49 Design to blend the natural beauty and rich cultural heritage of the destination with Conrad’s stylish and modern aesthetic. Light and airy villas, designed by P49 Design, reflect the resort’s overall approach to contemporary, functional and uncomplicated style with local artwork and accessories incorporated throughout.
The resort’s public spaces, designed by BLINK Design Group, exude the effortless, understated elegance of South Pacific living through bespoke French Polynesian touches paired with unspoiled surroundings.
