Bora Bora by Sunset was finally launched on June 3 2011 after much work and sweat from staffs of the defunk Sunset Bistro which was burnt to ashes late January 2011 ....its a reincarnation of sunset bistro reborn with a new twist. created by Yusri with a rather similar ambiance of a beach and free life....the staffs are the same and so does everything familiar with what sunset bistro used to offer...its more refine with a bigger bar and a cool shady shack even the heaviest monsoon rain couldn't even drop on you....situated by the beach and extended down to the edge of the water complimented with shaddy umbrellas and a big platform overseeing the sunset and the water of enchanting Ferringhi...Bora Bora which means water..and water it is best is what we offer to quench your thirst from noon till midnight daily even on holidays even meaning to sacrifice our rest just to honour and serve all our clients to the best..kitchen is new and spacious to cater for whatever craving you guys need to fill up the empty stomach with care and taste of a wonderful bistro exotic.

Great relaxed hang out on Ferringhi beach

Relaxed environment. On the beach settings. Offers some basic drinks and Shisha. Entertaining to watch beach walkers at sunset.

Probably a decent bar for younger visitors holidaying at a Batu Ferringhi resort. We stopped by for a quick bite to eat as a change from our local favourites in Tanjung Tokong. Service was attentive and friendly and the beach side location is attractive. We found the food (burger and sizzling prawn noodle) was just about adequate; we've eaten much... More

Only drank here so no experience of the food. This was a nicely located bar with a good atmosphere. The service was excellent and the prices during happy hour are reasonable. Will be going back.

Big friendly bar right on the beach. Plenty of tables and a good menu. Service was excellent and food well priced. Alcohol expensive as usual for Malaysia

Wow, what can i say about Bora Bora on the Batu Ferringhi beach. The view: from blue through grey in to red, orange and yellow, the sunset here is amazing. The entertainment: there are horses everywhere to ride, parasailing holidaymakers float past every few minutes, monkeys and jet skis everywhere. The food: western or local, both high quality. The value:... More

No doubt the setting by the beach is the main pull factor, absolutely no effort has been put into making proper cocktails or pizza. I ordered a melon margarita which didn't taste anything like an alcoholic beverage and I think we have eaten better pizza at a food court. In short, come here to enjoy a beer or wine but... More

Rustic, absolute beachfront, tables on the sand, sea views, sunset vistas, great service! We had beers while the kids played "Survivor" on the wide beach. Pizza and nachos made sure they had the stamina for their games! While we nibbled on garlic bread and spring rolls. Great value, cold beer, great spot!
