Things available at Four Seasons Bora Bora for an additional cost:

- Waterfront day spa. For a fee you can get a range of rejuvenating treatments including massages, facials, manicures, pedicures and so much more.
Tip: For the best experience, I’d recommend getting your treatment in the overwater spa suite where they place the beds on glass floors over the lagoon so you can watch the fish swimming beneath you as you’re getting your massage.

Of course, there are many more benefits to staying at Four Seasons Bora Bora, but these are my favorites that I think you’ll enjoy the most.
Every room also comes with everything you’d expect including a hairdryer, a TV, free WiFi, bathrobes, free toiletries, slippers, a desk and so much more.
Does Bora Bora Have All Inclusive Resorts?
There are no official all inclusive resorts in Bora Bora.
All-inclusive resorts often include a room, three daily meals, soft drinks, most alcoholic beverages, and occasionally extra services/activities.
Unfortunately, Bora Bora doesn’t have any resorts like this.
In Bora Bora, the nightly rate normally just covers the cost of your hotel. You will then also have to pay for your meals and activities on top.
Considering everything, Four Seasons Bora Bora is definitely one of the best resorts in Bora Bora.
Although it is very expensive, it’s also one of the most luxurious hotels in Bora Bora and includes a range of great amenities.
The Four Seasons resort has, hands down, the best view of Mt Otemanu in Bora Bora due to its location at the base of the mountain. It’s also one of the largest resorts in Bora Bora.
Additionally, staying at Four Seasons Bora Bora gives you that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to vacation in an overwater bungalow in one of the most exclusive locations in the world.
After all, that’s what you’re paying for, and for many people, it’s well worth it!
