Bora Bora is perhaps Tahiti’s most famous island, due its luxury resorts and idyllic over-water bungalows. Conrad Bora Bora Nui is located within the lagoon, which is protected by the reef – meaning the bungalows look out to an endless ocean.

The Hina Spa is located on the main island up on the hill, providing panoramic views of the surroundings.
