INTRODUCING THE NEW CONRAD BORA BORA NUI

Modern luxury meets Tahitian island life at the newly redesigned Conrad Bora Bora Nui
In a quiet cove in the middle of the South Pacific, Conrad’s newest addition is to be found on the islet of Motu To’opua. As the first resort to open on the island in the last decade, this is the destination for solitude seekers, where you’ll find untrammeled waters and majestic mountain peaks.

The surrounding beauty blends effortlessly with the hotel’s contemporary take on French-Polynesian design, but always retains a sense of place. Take the positioning of the beds for instance, at the center of each room to maximize on those vast floor-to-ceiling views of the Pacific.

Of the 114 rooms, guests can choose from the 28 tropical garden and beach villas or 86 overwater bungalows. Extra-special trips should be booked into the Presidential Villas, the only two-story overwater villas in the South Pacific, with top-floor sunning decks and indoor saunas.

Sauna or no sauna, guests will want to scope out the hilltop Hina Spa for full-body treatments ‘en plein air’, with a bird’s-eye view of the lagoon below. If that all sounds a little too virtuous, order cocktails at the infinity pool’s swim-up bar. The restaurant offering is equally spoiling, and a tricky choice between traditional Chinese cuisine at the Banyan Chinese restaurant, classic French gastronomy at the Iriatai French Restaurant, or knock-out views at the Upa Upa Lounge Bar, where you can glimpse the coral reef below through the glass-floor deck.

Whatever you do, take the short boat ride to Conrad’s exclusive islet, Motu Tapu, for a candlelit dinner. Back on Motu To’opua, discover the ‘mana’ of the Tahitian islands: a belief in a life force passed down through generations. Immerse yourself in this historical tradition, with ukulele lessons from local musicians and lessons in the history of black-pearl cultivation at the Maison Robert Wan.
