Overview

The Review

There are beach vacations, and then there’s Bora Bora. Here at the Pearl Beach Resort & Spa, bungalows sit on stilts man feet above the crystalline water of a pristine lagoon. But when you can go for a swim from your very own private deck, you start to wonder: “Who needs a beach?”

{“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/2277/prop-57733-1338990914-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”This family-friendly resort is the stuff of tropical dreams.”}That’s not to say that the resort’s beach is anything but spectacular. Rows of palm trees dip lazily over calm waters from a powder-soft white sand beach. You can take up residence under one such palm, frilly umbrella drink in one hand, book in the other. Or perhaps take a nap amid the lush tropical flowers surrounding the curving freshwater pool.

If you manage to rouse yourself, play tennis or mini golf on-site, borrow snorkeling gear or a kayak from the activities desk to explore the lagoon on your own, or visit the dive center or marina to arrange sailing and scuba excursions. Land-based exploration comes from four-wheel-drive island safaris and guided hikes up Mount Pahia (followed by a massage above a lily pond surrounded by coconut and bamboo at the resort’s Manea Spa, of course).

But the real challenge here is picking from among the 80 bungalows. Do you want to perch above the lagoon in a bungalow on stilts with your own private deck leading into the water? Or maybe you’d prefer a beachfront view with your own Jacuzzi? Or the lush seclusion of a garden villa with its own private plunge pool? Tough choice, but pretty much the only trouble you’ll encounter in this paradise.
