Trip Overview

Action-packed, fun tropical trip for two families. We booked 4 overwater bungalows but the Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora upgraded us to 2 overwater bungalows (for the kids) and a private beach villa with two masters, pool, hot tub, and private beach. This turned out to be very convenient as the kids could bring their gear for the day and use the villa as home base. We ate most meals at the resort which were very good (there are opportunities to take boat taxis to other restaurants). The breakfast spread was over the top every single day.
