I'm so sad to see this lovely place has closed. My husband and I spent our 10th anniversary here (1998) and considered returning for our 30th next year. It was a beautiful place with wonderful people. Bora Bora will always hold a special place in my heart. :)

So heartbroken to hear this resort has been shut down. We saved the best for last when we honeymooned on several islands in French Polynesia. Back in October of 1995, the Bora Bora Lagoon Resort was one of few places offering over water bungalows. The resort was fantastic and the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcomed and pampered. We had every intention of celebrating our 25th Anniversary there in 2020. Hope someone hurries up and buys the property to reopen it before then!!

I'm sad to read that the Bora Bora Lagoon Resort is out of business, having never reopened after hurricane damage a few years ago. It wasn't the ritziest of the overwater resorts, but it was truly beautiful, the service was great, the staff was friendly, the food was good, the overwater bungalows were just perfect, and its view of Mount Otemanu was picture perfect. It also had THE best location of any of the motu-based resorts. Being just across the bay from the main dock at Vaitape meant they could easily have their shuttle boat go back and forth every hour all day long. This was a great benefit as you didn't have to plan your excursions to the main island, you could just easily hop on the boat, and if you missed it, you only had to wait an hour. Plus you could visit the restaurants ashore for dinner and not worry about missing the last boat back. It's really sad that they're gone, and inexplicable that no one has repaired and reopened the facility. We visited in November of 2004 and always intended to go back.

Stayed: November 2016

If you're looking for the perfect romantic and exotic escape, you have to go to the Bora Bora Lagoon resort. It is out on the reef so the view you wake up to every morning is the island...breathtaking. The accommodations were beautiful and the staff were as charming as the views. We went in the off-season and it was still hot so make sure you have a good base tan before you go. The glass coffee tables open up so you can drop bananas down to the beautiful array of fish swimming just below your overwater bungalow. Once you check in you won't want to leave.....EVER!

Room Tip: Although all of the bungalows have spectacular views, try to get an over-water bungalow at the very end of any pier.

We spent almost a week here in our honeymoon which we started in Moorea. We stayed in an overwater bungalow and really enjoyed our time there. All the staff was incredible, always smiling and helpful. They let us stay in a room long after the check out time.
Make sure you bring some bread from the restaurant so you can feed the fish in your room.
There is not much to do here but, for us at least, that was the plan. There is a boat that can take you to the main island, where you can eat, have fun and buy stuff at a lower price.
Make sure you book a tour! The shark feeding tour was amazing!! we also rented jet skis and that was really fun too.

Room Tip: Make sure your room faces the main island, the view and the reed there are amazing
