Tahiti: nosey through the Hilton Bora Bora with me

With so many gorgeous resorts and overwater bungalows reaching into the giant lagoon of Bora Bora, it’s hard to decide where to stay. But don’t worry, I did the looking for you and here are my pics and a few comments to help you make that trip-of-a-lifetime decision.

Let’s start this mini series at the Hilton, Bora Bora

You can stay in villas in the garden or overwater bungalows. These 2 on the end are the Presidential suites.

The Presidential suites are 2 floors and this top floor has your own sauna and massage table before stepping through this hobbit door to the deck with a bar and jacuzzi

Hilton overwater bungalows Bora Bora

But most couples go for one of these – overwater bungalows where you can jump in off your own balcony and snorkel with the fish

Vaea brought this fresh seafood platter cooked on the bbq on the motu: spiny lobster (crayfish), shrimp, mahi mahi, tuna and poisson cru. Amazeballs!
