In contact with nature: the Alice & Raphaël Pension

Not far from the airport, the family-run Alice & Raphaël guesthouse offers total immersion between the ocean and the lagoon. The bustle of the city and the hotel complexes seems far away. The key words here are eco-development and conviviality, always in a dream setting with exceptional panoramas. The adorable owners of the pension share their daily life and their meals with the guests. They also provide all the necessary equipment to practice paddle or kayak. Their private beach is among the best Bora Bora beaches.

A small oasis of authenticity and calm, the Pension Alice & Raphaël offers accommodation in bungalows on land, comfortable and typical of the Polynesian habitat. Although they may seem rudimentary, the bungalows are of a very appreciable quality. It’s easy to be carried away by the incredible sweetness of life in the Pacific Islands. It is more of a life experience than a tourist stay.

In contact with the locals: Bora Bora Holiday’s Lodge

Bora Bora Holiday's Lodge

Although not strictly speaking a family guesthouse, the Bora Bora Holiday’s Lodge is a convincing alternative to the resorts on the island. On the west coast of the main island, this small hotel complex offers the advantage of being close to the hiking trails in Bora Bora. It also allows the practice of nautical activities on the lagoon. With the help of a means of transportation, it is even possible to make a tour of the island during your stay.

Several categories of accommodation are offered to better suit the clientele and the mood of the day. The accommodation conditions are simple and of high quality. Double rooms are equipped with sanitary facilities. For families, privatized bungalows can accommodate children. You will enjoy walking through the fruit gardens of the property and take advantage of the pool. Above all, we remember the incredible kindness of the owners. They love their job and do not hesitate to share with their guests unique moments of life.

Renting an accommodation

Perhaps you are looking for a little more privacy and autonomy. In this case, renting is certainly the most viable alternative to hotels in Bora Bora. In fact, many private individuals offer grand villas and functional homes for the best possible vacation.

An unusual and wonderful villa: Rohotu Fare

The furniture is made of exotic wood and the property’s gardens are as lush as they are artistic. Opinions are unanimous: the adventure is simply timeless.

The accommodation is spacious and well-equipped with kitchen and air conditioning. You will be tempted to stay on the terrace of your accommodation for the duration of your stay. However, you can take advantage of the bicycles at your disposal to go to the legendary Matira beach.

The perfect vacation home: Otemanu Ninamu Fare

Otemanu Ninamu Fare, Bora Bora

What if the secret to a successful trip was to keep your habits? For a family with young children, the answer seems more obvious than for a couple on their honeymoon.
