Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Hilton’s brand geared toward the affluent client, recently officially welcomed the first guests to Conrad Bora Bora Nui, the destination’s first five star resort to debut in 10 years, according to a Hilton news release.
The property in French Polynesia is located in a private cove on Motu Toopua, a small islet off the coast of Bora Bora. The beachfront property has 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-story overwater accommodations, according to the Hilton release. The resort, formerly known as Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa, underwent a multimillion-dollar refurbishment before reopening as the Conrad Bora Bora Nui.
The new resort aims to blend 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 seven indoor treatment rooms and one open-air space overlooking the lagoon.
The resort also has an expansive infinity pool, Kids Club, mini-golf course, fitness center, 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 Toopua, located a short boat ride away, is ideal for intimate events and romantic dinners for two. Additionally, guests have access to Conrad’s signature "1/3/5" itineraries, providing a selection of experiences that connect them with local Tahitian culture.
Each of the 86 renovated Overwater Villas and 28 Garden Villas have king beds with a customizable pillow menu, Nespresso coffee machines, and a selection of complimentary beverages. The bathrooms have sleek double vanities, a rain shower, and an oversized soaking tub.
Each villa also has a wall-to-wall sliding door that leads to an expansive viewing deck with ocean views. Overwater Villa decks have catamaran nets for lounging directly over the water, with select suites also offering an infinity plunge pool.
Two Presidential Villas, the destination’s only two-story, two-bedroom overwater bungalows, have an upstairs sunning deck and whirlpool, three bathrooms, two dressing rooms and a living room. Guests can choose to unwind in the sauna in the wellbeing room on the second floor, or enjoy views of the Pacific from the private sundeck with day beds and a bar area.
The hotel’s Hina Spa consists of seven bungalows and one 120 square-foot, open-air treatment room. Guests can enjoy a range of signature treatments incorporating Elemis skincare products. The spa also features a full-service steam room and sauna.
