Contemporary and elegant, the Le Meridien offers a luxury retreat on a magnificent private island on the east side of Bora Bora’s beautiful lagoon. With stunning views of Mount Otemanu, the hotel has successfully blended French modernism with Tahitian style. Your days can be spent relaxing on the private deck of your overwater bungalow or on the resort’s white-sand beaches (some of the best on the island). In the evening, watch the sun go down from a beachside bar and sample authentic French Polynesian cuisine in their array of restaurants. One of the signature features of this property is its ecological center and turtle sanctuary, which is home to many marine turtle species. Here guests can experience the turtles in their natural habitat as the resort works to ensure the successful future of the turtles in the ocean.
