What to do at the Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort
Even if you stay for a week you probably won't get to do all of these
activites at the Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort.
Bora Bora Nui Resort Spa
The Nui hilltop Hina Spa offers wellness in such a magic ambiance that it was used for the location of the final ceremony of 'The Batchelorette' in 2010.
Transfers to the Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort and Spa
recommend you book a hotel transfer. This costs 9,240XPF per person, per round trip. When you arrive at the Bora Bora
airport, go to the Hilton booth. A Polynesian momma will welcome you with a fragrant lei, your luggage will be taken care of
and you will be directed towards the pier for the Hilton's boat.
When the transfer boat approaches the Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort's dock and you step onto the floating reception area you
will be greeted by a drummer and ukulele players. At the end of your stay, as you leave for the airport, you'll be given a
traditional shell necklace as a goodbye, and a similar musical send-off. You'll hear this during your stay and feel sorry for
Internet connection, by Wifi and cables, is available around the resort and in the villas. There's 5 different packages you
can buy: 60 min. for 900XPF; 120 min. for 1500XPF; 24hrs. for 2900XPF; 3 days for 7900XPF; 5 days for 9900 XPF.
Phone use in the room is extremely expensive. Even for local calls. The reason given by reception is that there is
only one phone provider in Bora Bora. I made a few local calls and incurred a charge of several hundred dollars. Even when I
complained and it was cut in half I couldn't smile. Buy a phone card and use the public phones while in Vaitape. Or the internet.
We loved the bottle of Blanc De Corail delivered to our room on arrival. It was from the only winery in Tahiti, located on
Rangiroa, a coral atoll. We also appreciated the complimentary bottles of water which we received on our bedside tables with the
evening turn-down. Little touches, like having our slippers set out next to the bed, made us feel very 'looked after' at the
Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort.
The Nui has a very relaxed atmosphere for a 5 star hotel. This makes it easy for couples to engage with others. Each day we
saw people walking around the breakfast tables, saying farewells, before catching the airport boat. The islanders live life at a
slower pace. They have a 'not to worry' attitude. Life is to be enjoyed.
Some rooms are quite a distance from restaurants and reception. Walking around the grounds is a pleasure but any time you
want a ride you can ring for a golf cart pick-up.
Check-in is at 2pm and check-out is at 11am. When possible, the Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort is generous with late check-out
times. They know when you're leaving because their boat is taking you to the airport. On our final morning, reception rang and
said our check-out time was 4pm. Some people have even been given a free upgrade for the last night, as late checkout was not
available in their previous room.
