Presidential Overwater Bungalow

I booked the Presidential Overwater Bungalow and my expectations for a luxurious, palatial venue to experience Bora Bora were surpassed. Over 3,000 square feet of living space are found in this two-story villa set over the pristine blue lagoon. Two large bedrooms, three bathrooms, a sauna, expansive living room, three outdoor terraces, an outdoor dining room, and much more are found in the estate.

The Conrad has two of these villas at the end of the jetty giving the most privacy to visitors. These are also the only two story overwater bungalows in all of Bora Bora – which are perfect if you are planning to bring your family or visit with a group of friends. Plenty of space for all.

Relaxing in the infinity swimming pool or napping on a lounge chair might be your idea of the perfect vacation, but this resort offers much more for those seeking a little adventure, recreation, or entertainment. Enjoy snorkeling, stand-up paddle boarding, bicycle boats, kayaks, and more along the cool blue waters.

The resort also offers “cultural activities” that you might only find in French Polynesia, such as a Ukulele lesson or learn “how to open a coconut”. In addition, the fitness center offers weights and cardio equipment, fitness classes, and personal training sessions available.

Additional information for visiting:

  • When you arrive in Tahiti at the airport, you will be taking a 50 minute flight with Air Tahiti to Bora Bora. You will need to schedule a round-trip transfer before you arrive to make sure there is a boat to pick you up when you arrive. Cost is $150 USD per adult. 
  • The Conrad does use credit card so you will not need cash for anything other than leaving a tip for your housekeeper. 
  • Since the hotel is on a motu and not in the main town of Vaitape, you can pay to take the hotels boat shuttle to the main city if you wish to do some shopping or eat elsewhere – just check their shuttle times. 
  • There is quit a lot to do in Bora Bora from jet skiiing, snorkeling, seeing whales, etc. Just book your tours in advance to make sure you can get on them. 
  • Bora Bora is a pricey and exclusive destination. Make sure to check this month by month breakdown of best times to visit based on weather and pricing. If you go during off season you can score deals often 50% or more off than the high season. 

Overall:

Only stayed for one night but thought it was a great property. I would recommend staying at least 2-3 nights just to get a better feel for the location and to relax and enjoy it all.
