There are two ways to get to your resort from Bora Bora airport:
If you are wanting the smoothest arrival to your resort, book your resorts' shuttle. They will greet you with tropical leis and take you on a glamorous boat to your resort. Many of the resorts are on outer lying motus, so this is the quickest and easiest way to get from Bora Bora airport to your resort.
If you are staying on the main island of Bora Bora at the Intercontinental Le Moana, The Maitai, The Sofitel Marara Beach or at a Bora Bora pension, you can save money by taking the free Air Tahiti shuttle. You will then need to take a taxi or bus to your resort.
Guests of the Hilton Nui resort can easily make use of the free shuttle to Vaitape, and then hop on the Hilton's boat shuttle from the dock to the resort for a very small fee (around $6).
Guests of the Pearl Beach Resort can save money by taking the free shuttle, but will need to take a taxi from Vaitape up to the Pearl Beach Dock and then pay a small fee for for the Pearl Beach's regular shuttle.
Arriving at your resort by boat transfer is a beautiful begining to your stay at your resort in paradise and a magnificent way to start your vacation. I do recommend booking your resort's shuttle, unless you are doing Bora Bora on a budget.For more information on Bora Bora Airport visit our Bora Bora Airport page.
