This year Condé Nast awards Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort and spa, which is in a lush tropical garden setting, as number 5. The elegant Four Seasons Bora Bora has been honored as number 2 on the list below. It is interesting that these 2 hotels position themselves in distinctly different price categories.
