Le Meridien Bora Bora Named Top Island Resort

Le Meridien Bora Bora Named Top Island Resort
Launched in 1999 with a breakthrough No Blackout Dates policy for the world's most sought-after collection of hotels, the award-winning Starwood Preferred Guest program is populated by passionate, knowledgeable and well-traveled members who know top-of-the-line hospitality when they experience it.

When Starwood Preferred Guests were invited to identify their favorite resorts around the globe, they selected twelve across nine categories. Le Méridien Bora Bora received votes in four categories including, "Best Exotic Escapes," "Most Romantic Retreats," "Best Small Wonders," and "Best Island Paradise." The resort was not only included in the "Best Island Paradise" category but was named number one.

Renovated in 2011 by French interior designer Didier Lefort, the 99-bungalow resort distinctive and iconic elements of Polynesian culture and civilization as well as meticulous details, from magnificent frescoes on the ceiling of Le Tiaré restaurant to doors inlaid with intricate patterns created from tiny shells. All accommodations - including 60 Overwater and 22 Premium Overwater Bungalows - look out onto jaw-dropping views of Otemanu Mountain and the lagoon and are built with appreciation of the environment and ecosystem of French Polynesia.

The renovation of Le Méridien Bora Bora added much to appeal to Starwood Preferred Guests - or anyone with "The Pearl of the Pacific" on their itinerary. Enhancements included a 2,000 sq. foot swimming pool, a new Chapel for matrimony-minded guests; enhancements to an array of accommodations; and the new Manahua Wellness Center offering healing treatments and wellness programs inspired by the thousand-year history of the Polynesian healing arts. This fall, a new Ecological Center will open to complement the resort's renowned Turtle Sanctuary.
