General Information

Bora Bora lies 240 kilometers (150 miles) north-west of Tahiti in the Leeward Society Islands. The main island is home to 4,225 inhabitants and is surrounded by a stunning multicolored environment, rich in both natural and historic treasures. There is only one navigable pass, facing the principal village of Vaitape. A 29-kilometer, partially paved road circles the island, passing colorful villages, archaeological sites, old army bunkers and cannons left over from World War II.

Le Meridien Bora Bora is located on the coral reef, on the southern tip of Motu (an islet built over a coral reef), facing the island of Bora Bora. The hotel is only 20 minutes by private launch from the airport and five minutes by boat from the main island of Bora Bora. There are no car parking facilities at the hotel. Off shore, the Motu Islands are scattered within a large ring of coral, which the visitor can explore through various boat trips, scuba-diving and snorkelling excursions.

Time difference - GMT minus 10 hours.
