If you book accommodation at a resort you will have everything you need right at your doorstep and you can really get lost in time and just forget about everything.  After all that is why many of us need a vacation.  Time away from all your stress..

It is so easy to make this dream holiday happen.  

Q & A:  The best time to visit Bora Bora

 

..is during the dry season which is usually April to October.  However we would suggest booking between May and September just to be safe.

Step 1:  Let’s start with your accommodation options.

You have a wide variety of accommodation options.  From over-the-water-bungalows where you can jump right into the sea from your livingroom, to self catering beachfront homes overlooking the beautiful mountains and crystal clear water. 

Our favorite option is booking at an over-the-water-bungalow-resort. Staying in a bungalow you will have to resist the urge to just run from your front door right through your bungalow and jump in the water every time you open your front door.  It is so inviting and great fun.  The bungalows are spacious and perfect for families, or as a romantic get away.  After all Bora Bora is one of the favorite honeymoon destinations in the world.

Worrying about what to eat is the least of your troubles as the resort food are out of this world.  Good food.  Good service.  Excellent views.  You biggest worry might be “what to do next”, if you are an outdoor enthusiast, as there are so many activities to choose from. 

Parasailing is one of them, and is a fantastic way of getting a different view of Bora-Bora.  When looking at photos, you might think it is photo-shopped, but indeed the vistas that awaits you on this island is picture perfect.

FAQ: Which is more expensive – The Maldives or Bora-Bora?

This is often the first question many travelers ask.

Well it is quite difficult to choose between the Maldives and Bora-Bora.  I think it all depends on from where you are traveling, because that might have an impact on your travel budget due to flight cost.  However both these holiday destinations have fantastic reasons for you to visit.  

In the Maldives, the daily cost of living can vary significantly depending on the type of accommodation, dining choices, and activities you opt for. Luxury resorts in the Maldives often include meals and activities in their packages, which can help to control costs. However, if you choose to dine at high-end restaurants or participate in exclusive excursions, the expenses can add up. On average, you can expect to spend a significant amount on meals, drinks, and activities in the Maldives.

Similarly, Bora-Bora is renowned for its luxury offerings, which come at a premium price. The daily cost of living in Bora-Bora can be high due to the limited availability of accommodations and the exclusive nature of the resorts. Dining at upscale restaurants and participating in water sports or excursions can further increase your expenses. It’s worth noting that the remoteness of Bora-Bora can also contribute to higher prices for certain goods and services.

Overall, both destinations are known for their luxury and high-end experiences, which typically come with a higher cost of living. It’s essential to plan and budget accordingly to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable stay while managing your expenses.
