This resort is located on the island Motu Tevairoa, 10 minutes by boat from the Bora Bora airport, 15 minutes from the main city of Bora Bora Vaitape, and offers 50 overwater bungalows, 10 beach bungalow suites and 20 garden pool suites.

See thumbnails of all photos for this point of interest.


At the Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort you can discover the sparkling magic of the lagoon, admire the awe-inspiring Mount Otemanu while luxuriating in the peace and tranquility of the surroundings.

Bora Bora, with a lagoon resembling an artist' s palette of blues and greens, is love at first sight. Honeymooners and romantics from around the world have laid claim to this island where the castle-like Mount Otemanu pierces the sky. Lush tropical slopes and valleys blossom with hibiscus, while palm-covered motu circle the lagoon like a delicate necklace. Perfect white-sand beaches give way to emerald waters where impossibly colored fish animate the coral gardens.

Review:   Recommended for: Honeymoons, anniversaries

Pros: This is probably my favorite resort in Bora Bora. It combines a real Polynesian feel and style in the bungalows, a beautiful pool, lovely grounds, and an absolutely amazing setting for the spa--on a little island in the middle of a lily pad pond...truly spectacular and romantic.

Cons: None.

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Had an amazing time here! Views and beach were awesome. Customer service was top notch. Dinner on the beach was expensive but worth it. Gym was ok. Lunch at the bar was ok, a little bit pricey. Otherwise, would totally stay again. One down side is every time you want to go to town you have to pay for a water taxi or ferry fee. Its not a huge expense but it does add up.

Review:   We booked 2 types of room while staying with Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort. First one was garden pool bungalow, we LOVED it. It was very spacious with our private pool with jacuzzi! We were in love with it and was not sure if we would love overwater bungalow, the second room we booked. Overwater bungalow did not disappoint us at all and we LOVED LOVED it! we woke up to the most beautiful scene, some mornings we got rainbows and all, it was fantastic! The hotel provides free activities daily too like learning how to wear pareo (sarong), coconut show, learning how to make headband from flower! There are also canoe, kayak, paddle board, putt putt golf and spa! We loved every minute of it!

Review:   We're glad we opted for the beach front bungalow with view of Mount Otemanu. The beach was right outside our door, along with the wonderful lagoon where we we paddle boarded, kayaked, and just sometimes walked through as it was shallow and sandy. When we got hot, we just stepped right back into our bungalow and enjoyed the view. Our bungalow (#54) was spacious and the bed was super comfy. The outdoor bathroom and jacuzzi were wonderful. Didn't think we'd use the jacuzzi but my husband loved it. The only con to the bath were the mosquitoes. Not many but I did get a bite on my butt! When we were sitting in the front part of the bungalow we also noticed the mosquitoes. There was a plug in mosquito repellent but I didn't realize what it was until later. The breakfast buffet was very good and offered plenty of choices (eggs, sausages, fruit, cereal, eggs to order, crepes, breads, croissants, meats/cheeses, etc.) The only complaint was they didn't refill some items like crepes so if you don't come early they ran out. Our favorite place for dinner was the Miki Miki Bar. Order the Hot Stone entree with 3 sauces. Fun to cook your own food right at your own table. The hotel concierge is very helpful and arrange for our scooter rental over on the main island. One big plus of the Pearl is its easy access (just a short 5-minute boat ride) to town. We did see a couple cruise ships come in so inquire ahead of time as you probably don't want to be doing activities on those days. We didn't see many people snorkeling here.A few fish near overwater bungalows but not nearly as many as on Tikehau. Our main complaint was the awful smoke smell that drifted over to the resort from trash burning on the main island on our last day. Not pleasant. We were also awakened by music at 5 am on the last morning. The manager said that it was due to weekend partying from residents on the island and happens frequently on the weekend.
