You may recognize the resort’s two-storey overwater bungalows from TV episodes of The Bachelorette or Keeping up with the Kardashians. Formerly a Hilton, this Tahiti resort is undergoing a multi-millon dollar renovation before reopening in March as the Conrad Bora Bora Nui. It’s situated on the southwest end of Motu To'opua, an islet off the Bora Bora coast—a 20-minute boat ride from the airport.
There will be 29 garden and beach villas, plus 86 overwater bungalows, including the infamous double-storey Presidential Suites (the only ones in Bora Bora). This is the first property for the Conrad brand in the South Pacific; in the region, Hilton Worldwide currently operates Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort & Spa, Hilton Fiji Beach Resort & Spa and the DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Fiji Sonaisali Island.
Facilities at the Conrad Bora Bora Nui will include a Kids Club, wedding venues, a mini-golf course, a fitness center, and a spa with eight treatment rooms. The varied F&B outlets include a French brasserie, a Polynesian beach restaurant, a Chinese eatery, a swim-up pool bar, and an overwater sunset bar.
