Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora Debuts Enhanced Beachfront Villa Estates
Appealing to the most discriminating guests, the Resort’s seven two and three-bedroom beachfront villa estates offer a luxurious residential experience, with abundant indoor-outdoor living space, complete privacy, and complete personalisation. These spacious accommodations, ranging from 2,722 to 5,380 square feet (253-500 square metres), each offer expansive living space, separate entrances to each bedroom, a dining area, beachfront lawn, white sand beach and direct views of Bora Bora’s famous lagoon and majestic Mount Otemanu. Enhancements to these villas include the addition of large infinity-edge pools, outdoor wooden decks and living space, new furniture, 75 and 65 inch televisions, and technology. Some of these villas also offer a full al fresco kitchen for private chef dinners and personalised dining experiences.
Guests of the beachfront villa estates are serviced by a team of Villa Hosts who connect with guests once the initial reservation is made, to start personalising the stay. The dedicated Villa Host greets the guest upon arrival at the Bora Bora airport, and escorts them to the Resort via private yacht. At the Resort, the Villa Host is the guest's singular point of contact, assisting throughout their stay, by providing and anticipating service to exceed expectations. These elements include facilitating daily dining and activities, villa maintenance, as well as arranging exclusive experiences to celebrate special occasions. The Villa Host also keeps in contact with the guest in between stays, and assists with future reservations.
Enhanced Dining Experiences
Under the direction of new Executive Chef Eric Desbordes, three of the Resort’s restaurants have been refreshed, with new furniture, décor, new concepts and updated menu offerings. Vaimiti is an idyllic overwater setting for eclectic Asian cuisine and sunset cocktails; Fish House at Fare Hoa is a Tahitian fish house dining experience, featuring the seafood bounty direct from the South Pacific’s clear waters; while Arii Moana showcases French mastery in a nightly Chef’s menu based on the freshest ingredients of the day, and is complemented by French Polynesia's finest wine collection, with more than 150 labels from around the world. Additionally, the Resort has introduced La Roulotte, a waterside "grab and go" food truck for refreshing snacks of homemade ice cream, sorbet and cold drinks.
Overwater Accommodations and Resort Shopping
Late last year, the Resort completed its overwater enhancement, with the addition of eight new overwater bungalow suites - six featuring 11 x 8 foot (3.35 x 2.4 metre) infinity-edge plunge pools set on a private deck over the turquoise lagoon. Additionally, six plunge pools were added to existing overwater bungalow suites, bringing the total number of overwater accommodations with pools to 27, and the total overwater room count to 108. Designed by BAMO, each of the one and two-bedroom overwater bungalow suites was refreshed, reflecting a more contemporary Polynesian feel, complete with new furniture, fixtures, lighting, and technology including 55 inch Chromecast-enabled televisions. Additionally, solar panels were installed on each bungalow’s thatched roof, providing a natural and sustainable power source for heating water.
The Resort also added MoeMoea, a 3,550 square-foot (330 square metre) shopping experience, which combines the best of resort wear, casual and active apparel, accessories, women’s luxe apparel, swimwear and more.
"We are thrilled to complete this major enhancement, bringing our private island experience to even higher levels,” says 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.”
