The Four Seasons Bora Bora Mt. Otemanu overwater bungalow with plunge pool has to be hands down one of the most luxurious rooms in the World, and at +/- $4,000 per night, well, it should be!
Seeing this room online years ago is what made me want to go to Bora Bora in the first place. So when we first booked our trip and saw the cost, we debated if we should splurge on this room or not. We seriously went back and forth a million times. At the end of the day, I’m glad we decided to do it. I would have regretted it if we didn’t. Don’t get me wrong, the standard overwater bungalows here are wonderful, but this room is just… spectacular!
We had bungalow 430, which is located on the very end of the last pontoon (closest to the St. Regis resort).
The bungalow is huge! At over 1,500 square feet there’s so much room!
When you first walk in there’s a small foyer. To your left, is one of the two full baths.
In the picture below, the door on the right is the main door to go outside, and across the way is a closet.
Continuing past the foyer, you’ll find yourself in the main living area.
Next is the bedroom/closet area, which is unreal! It’s completely open! What a great space! And the view from the bed is… WOW.
All the doors are sliding, so the entire suite can be completely open, or closed off and private.
Look at the view from the bed!
Continuing onto the main bathroom, which is right off the bedroom:
One of my favorite things was the window in the shower that looks down at the water below!
The deck was a total dream! There’s a (shaded) dining area that’s right off the living room. That chest (on the bottom left in the picture below) has snorkeling equipment and life jackets.
Right by the outdoor dining area are loungers.
Just look at this view from the deck!
I’d say the only “negative” to these amazing suites (and I quote negative because there really is none), is that they aren’t very private. There are boats and jet ski’s that pass by. Also, the water is very deep in this area.
So the part of the deck I just showed has stairs that lead down to a large swimming platform.
Here’s the swimming platform. It’s great for jumping! There’s also a ladder that leads into the water, as well as a shower.
These stairs (pictured below) lead to the other side of the deck.
The other deck features a hammock, outdoor bed, and a plunge pool!
The plunge pool was way bigger than I thought it was going to be! It even had benches and got deeper in the middle!
So now that I (hopefully didn’t) bore you with all of these fabulous room pictures, I’ll move on to our first couple of days in Bora Bora… with more pictures.
So what did we do these first few days? Nothing. We literally didn’t leave this amazing bungalow. Despite having complimentary breakfast with our room rate, we never made it to the restaurant. Instead we had all our meals delivered. We went from bathing suit to bathing suit, soaking in the sun, swimming in the plunge pool, and jumping into that beautiful water!
And just when you think Bora Bora couldn’t possibly get any more beautiful, the stars come out, and it does.
Those stars above? Every damn night. So spectacular!
