I just spent 5 days in Bora Bora, and it was paradise. Even though we had a lot of rain 😩. You know it is a great resort when you are dying to get more points so you can come back again, even when the weather the first time wasn’t the greatest. I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to do a post on bookable hotels with points near Bora Bora.
From the minute we got off the speedboat, this resort had my heart! Gorgeous views, a welcoming committee with gold washcloths and drinks, and a huge room to stay in with an upgraded over-the-water villa the last night!
When I booked this hotel, the standard room was 95K. It now starts at 120K Hilton Honors Points. I would definitely save Hilton Points for this stay!
The Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort and Spa did not have any standard rooms through November 2023, and the premium rooms were about 280K. Wowzers! You might get lucky like I did when I booked the Conrad and suddenly find some availability. We talked to someone at the Conrad who had been there and thought it was “tired.”
We stayed at the Hilton Tahiti before heading to the Conrad Bora Bora. It was a nice hotel to stay at before heading out to the Conrad, but It is very close to the airport. Hence, it feels a little like an airport hotel, and although it is a beautiful property, the water area is not what you expect for Tahiti. We thought we were going to get some real Tahiti vibes, and this didn’t offer that.
You can find a standard room for as little as 74K points/night, and if you get in late to Tahiti as we did, this hotel makes a nice stop-off place. We actually stayed two nights (we anticipated it would have more of the real-Tahiti feel). It was nice to rest up before we headed to Bora Bora.
The InterContinental: Bora Bora Resort Thalasso Spa is a hotel where I cannot find a bookable night with points. It may be a great place to stay but trying to find points to stay is like finding a needle in a haystack. Have you stayed there, anyone, with points? The price to stay in an overwater villa is about $1400/night.
French Polynesia is a destination that many people would like to book. Whether you are staying on Tahiti, Bora Bora, or Moorea, there are several bookable hotels near Bora Bora with credit card points. Where would you pick to stay?
