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:   Great place with fun activities. Only reason for the four star is food and prices marked up for tourist but can't be too mad. People were friendly and the beach was amazing!

Review:   Paradise!! The setting was stunning, the food was great, and the hospitality was excellent. My husband and I spent 7 days at the Pearl Beach Resort for our honeymoon and they are memories that will stay with us for a lifetime. The breakfast buffet was surprisingly diverse and really great for getting the energy for all of the activities. Lunch at Miki Miki Restaurant is a must, and dinner at Tevairoa was a decadent treat. Our garden villa was so spacious, and the turn down service was really helpful for re-stocking and keeping the room tidy. Should we ever be lucky enough to go back to Bora Bora, it will be to the Pearl Beach. Thank you!!

Review:   If anyone is looking for great deals on hotels go to HotelRaven. com Booked a room on there and they had the best rates around... Remote motu (Motu Tevairoa) that is not surrounded by other hotel chains as Le Meridien, Four Seasons, St. Regis, Thalasso, etc, so there's a feeling of quiet and isolation. Absolutely love the Polynesian themed bungalows and its fantastic, friendly staff. We got the view facing Mount Otemanu, which is easily the way to go. It's on the side that edges out further into the lagoon, which is ideal (after a storm, debris can collect to the shore, which is not ideal, and can take a bit for the staff to clean timely -- you won't have this problem with the Mount Otemanu facing side, or the ones that are further out into the lagoon). This place has three main food location (Tevairoa, Miki Miki, Taurerea Sushi Restaurant). Miki Miki Restaurant has happy hour and live music most evenings while you dine and also overlooks part of the beach. Excellent buffet breakfast at Tevairoa Restaurant consisting of made-to-order benedicts, eggs, and omelettes. Also contain French toast, crepes, French pastries (croissant with chocolate inside, currant buns, etc). Taurearea Restaurant at time of writing is at ~$60 for sushi combo consisting of two small rolls (6 California roll sized pieces) and 2 piece of nigiri. It tastes good, but definitely not for the price (easily better sushi in CA and Japan for way cheaper). This place has a great spa location that feels remote. Kayaking, pedal, and paddle boarding are all free of charge. Has a small coral reef garden that is a nursery area, but you can snorkel a bit. However, if you explore the area to the right of the bungalow and beach (South West), there's a huge shallow area (3-5 feet) and semi-deep area (5-10 feet) that stretches for a good quarter mile or so where you can snorkel and explore a lot of awesome local reefs. However if you want a much better experience, the guided snorkel adventure "Pure Snorkeling" can't be beat. We did ours with "Reef Discovery" but I'm sure the rest are just as great with small differences and perks here and there. Overall, this is an awesome location. Just about any resort offers stunning views, especially of the lagoon, with different shades of blue that dictates cut off points for various depth of water. It depends on what side of the mountain you want to see, or the various amenities and services offered, and proximity to other important things to you. We found Pearl Beach to fit our needs perfectly.
