Bumping up the Luxury Level in Bora Bora

As I mentioned in my past post, the islands may be small but things change.   Having known this was coming for some time, the official announcement was just made this past week – Conrad Hotels are coming to Bora Bora.  The 5 star Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort which has been undergoing extensive renovations is closing down completely on August 31.

Hilton Bora Bora NuiCome March 2017 the property will reopen after their multi million dollar renovation as the Conrad Bora Bora Nui Hotel.   It is a very exciting change for the resort with all the new upgrades.    If you are not aware, Conrad Hotels are highest end brand for Hilton hotel chain.  Currently there are the 2 Hiltons in French Polynesia – the 5 star Hilton Moorea Resort and Spa and the Hilton Bora Bora Nui which will soon be the Conrad.

The Hilton Bora Bora Nui holds a soft spot in my heart as it was the first resort in Bora Bora I ever stayed at.    I have always loved their overwater bungalow and without a doubt, they have THE best sunsets of any resort with unobstructed views looking west over the lagoonConrad Bora Bora Nui Hotel and the open South Pacific.

I can’t wait to see this new and improved property that is setting itself up to compete with the likes of the Four Seasons and St Regis.  New bungalows, new restaurants, upgraded service – exciting changes.   Stay tuned for more next spring!
