The exclusive Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora in French Polynesia has finished a wide-ranging renovation programme, with help from the likes of San Francisco-based design studio BAMO.

This property-wide transformation promises to raise the luxurious private island resort’s offering to new heights.

New beachfront villa estates

In November 2020, Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora announced the completion of the last phase in its all encompassing renovation: the debut of seven two- and three-bedroom beachfront villa estates. Designed to offer a luxurious residential experience, these hideaways come with abundant indoor-outdoor space, complete personalisation and ultimate privacy.

Ranging between 2,722 and 5,380 sq ft in size, each one pairs expansive living space, a dining area and a beachfront lawn with spectacular views out over the lagoon and Mount Otemanu; further luxury comes in the form of large infinity-edge pools, outdoor wooden decks, and 65- and 75-inch TVs. Some villas also boast full al fresco kitchens for hosting private dining experiences.

Villa Hosts connect with the guests of these villa estates once the initial reservation has been made to help personalise their stay; they also greet the guest on arrival at Bora Bora airport, before accompanying them to the resort by private yacht. From that point on, this host is the guest’s primary point of contact, facilitating their every need from dining requests to activities – even assisting with future reservations.

A resort-wide transformation

The introduction of these villa estates follows the recent completion of enhancements to the resort’s overwater accommodation, shopping facilities and F&B. Last year, the property welcomed the addition of eight new overwater bungalow suites, six of which feature infinity-edge plunge pools, and six pools to existing overwater bungalow suites. Designed by BAMO, these one- and two-bedroom suites now showcase a more contemporary Polynesian feel as well as eco-friendly solar panels.

Three of the resort’s restaurants – overwater dining venue Vaimiti, Tahitian-focused Fish House and French gastronomic spot Arii Moana – have also been refreshed under the direction of new executive chef Eric Desbordes. Moreover, the property has introduced the waterside food truck La Roulette, as well as the 3,550 sq ft shopping experience MoeMoea.

“We are thrilled to complete this major enhancement, bringing our private island experience to even high levels,” said Diego Stembert, general manager of Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora. “Between the new and enhanced overwater bungalow suites to the addition of MoeMoea, refreshed restaurants and now our spectacular beachfront villa estates, we are now better than ever, and ready to thrill our guests with the most memorable, personalised experiences.”
