This resort is simply perfect. I’m there right now and I wouldn’t change a thing. The breakfast is ridiculous good. Must try the French toast. The staff.. amazing.. the view honestly better in person than the pics. Anyone who complains is the same person who thinks boiling coffee isn’t hot enough. Room is great. Amazing value and will we be back .. absolutely.
Make sure to venture around the property past the helicopter pad cool little side island they have. We are staying in a lagoon view cottage and it’s perfect I wake up I walk outside and my toes are in the warm lagoon in 15 steps. I’m writing this from the lagoon beach and not a person in it looks like a post card.

Stayed here for 5 days and can easily say it was most beautiful place I’ve ever been. The water and the landscape is sensational. The staff was super friendly, accommodating, and helpful. A few tips - pack rafts and rope, more sunscreen than you think you will need, plastic bottles of alcohol - ice is readily available. We took our yeti cups and Mio for mixer. Super handy. Drinks are $23 apiece. Do have Donata make you long islands at the pool bar! She is a hoot! Also a shout out to Joseph L who was extra accommodating! We stayed in premium view over the water. I would not pay for that upgrade again however. All appear to have a great view. We would stay in a lagoon bungalow if we go back but the OTW is a one time must!!!

Loved it!!!

This was one of the best vacations ever and it was worth every penny spent! The staff was awesome and very attentive from the moment they picked us up from the airport!! The over the water bungalow was awesome and we enjoyed it just as much!! If you go I would suggest you include your food with your room as it can get pricey. We bought a bottle of liquor from Tahiti to take with us to make some cocktails during our stay. You can also taxi over to the main island and pick up some small snacks and groceries for the room. The pictures don’t do it justice you have to see it in person!!

The most pefect place!

We spent 7 pefect days over christmas ! It really was the most amazing experience of our lives and it really was b/c of the amazing staff at the hotel!
Especially amelia , latishia , donata , joana , and so many more - especially the women at the main desk and the waitress ! Everyone helped us with everything we needed , but what we really appreciated was that everyone remembered our names, and took the time to talk to us and ask about our day and give us recomdations
It really made it the most perfect experience
The hotel we went after in moorea , we kept saying they are not even close to being as amazing as our hotel - we came 30 hours each direction all the way from israel and for sure we will be back again !
The most beautiful hotel , really was heaven on earth! Best week of our lives

Beautiful views and rooms!

We stayed at Le Meridien Bora Bora for our honeymoon and had an amazing trip. I could not believe how beautiful it was, and our pictures do not do it justice.

PROS:
-THE BIGGEST PRO: I left a $600 diamond necklace in the safe when we checked out and realized it once we had returned to the US. I was devastated because of the price but it also had sentimental value because I wore it for our wedding. I've stayed at hotels in the past where I've left a phone charger and less than an hour after checking out, the hotel claimed not to have found it. I called Le Meridien once I realized I had left the necklace and they quickly got back to me saying housekeeping found it in the safe when they were cleaning the room, and they had set it aside at the front desk. They then worked with me to get my necklace mailed to me. I had to pay the shipping cost, which was understandable, but I was so incredibly impressed with the integrity of the staff.
-Unbeatable views. Le Meridien was one of the first resorts in Bora Bora, so they claimed the best spot on the island. Our room was, in my opinion, the best one on the resort. We stayed in an overwater end of pontoon bungalow, which meant we had an amazing view of Mount Otemanu, a larger balcony, and more privacy
-Housekeeping was amazing. We kept passing the housekeeping staff walking to and from our room and they were always incredibly friendly. They did an amazing job cleaning our room and with the turn down service in the evening. Also, regarding my first point, they returned my necklace to me rather than pocketing it, which someone easily could have done.
-The turtle center was a highlight of our stay. We enjoyed learning about the amazing work they are doing at the turtle center. They take injured turtles and rehabilitate them with the goal of releasing them back into the wild. We got to learn about the turtles and were able to pet and feed them. We also paid to swim with turtles, which they limit to two couples each day, so the turtles are not stressed out or overwhelmed. That was such a unique experience.

CONS:
-I read reviews before we went on our trip, that the food at Le Meridien left something to be desired and I would have to agree. We booked a half board package, so our breakfast and dinners were included in the package, which was a great deal given the prices on the island. Because we had the half board package, we ate at the resort every night but the food was not the best I've had. None of it was bad, but a lot of the dishes we had for dinner lacked salt or seasoning and especially compared to Sofitel Moorea where we had just come from, we were not impressed with the food.
-The breakfast was really delicious and had a lot of variety, however we had some issues with the breakfast staff. We were told upon check in that breakfast started at 6:30 I believe (whatever time we were told it started is when we arrived every morning to get a head start on the day). I'm not sure if we were told an incorrect time, but every morning when we arrived there would be no one at the egg station or the waffle/pancake/crepe station. It took a while before a chef would come out, and he or she always seemed annoyed or bothered by us and was not overly friendly. This, again, was a huge shock to us, because at Sofitel Moorea the restaurant staff were overly friendly.
-The overwater bungalows are definitely the smallest of the resorts, but it wasn't a problem for us. We had plenty of space for the two of us, we hardly spent any time in our room, and we had a bigger balcony since we were in a premium room. I imagine if you had a smaller balcony, it would be difficult to sun bathe because the roof awning covered most of the balcony. I believe all the overwater bungalow rooms are the same size, the only difference is the balcony size.

Overall, we had an amazing honeymoon and enjoyed our stay at Le Meridien Bora Bora. The cons I listed are to give an honest and transparent review for others who are planning a trip to Bora Bora. Despite us wishing the food would have been better, we still had the best time and it really is impossible to have a bad stay when you're somewhere as beautiful as Bora Bora.
