Description: Located in the storied Bora Bora archipelago, the Bora Bora Lagoon Resort on Motu Toopua possesses one of the most dramatic natural settings in the World. Master planning and design included complete revitalization of the existing resort facility, its grounds and facilities, as well as a major hillside expansion to elevate the property to the “Super Luxury” level. Designing for all bungalows (fares) to be either over-water, waterfront or poolside, all guest fares have a private garden and water element. A variety of passive and active recreational and swimming pool options were created to allow a less dense feeling to the property even while the net guest count increased throughout the overall resort. Views are directed and framed to the mythical Mt. Otemanu from all guest areas and a super luxury spa nestled in its own private corner of the property offers the utmost in guest pampering. Exclusive day and overnight spa suites are situated around an idyllic waterway and beach environment.
