Conrad Hotels are bring their brand of smart luxury to French Polynesia with the announcement that the growing hotel chain has signed a franchise agreement to take over the Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa. After a multimillion-dollar refurbishment, the resort will open as Conrad Bora Bora Nui in March 2017.
Conrad Hotels has been on a bit of a roll lately. A new Chicago hotel is set to open soon and the brand has been expanding around the globe. As our own Pursuitist editor Christopher Parr found out when he visited the Conrad Koh Samui in Thailand, the resorts offer a luxury experience that delivers comfort while still incorporating elements of the local culture.
“We are pleased to be expanding our brand portfolio in the French Polynesia region, where we established our presence in 2009. This agreement underscores our strong commitment to this key market, which has demonstrated its resilience and its enduring appeal to travelers around the world,” said Robert Scullin, vice president development Australasia, Hilton Worldwide.
Conrad Bora Bora Nui is located on Motu To’opua, an islet off the coast of Bora Bora, about 20 minutes by boat from Bora Bora Airport. The beachfront Conrad Bora Bora Nui will feature 28 tropical garden and beach villas and 86 overwater bungalows, including the destination’s only double-story Presidential Suites.
The resort will have a full-service spa, with eight treatment rooms, including one al fresco deck with clear views of the lagoon, a Kids Club, a mini-golf course, a fitness center, and retail spaces. Should you desire to do business in paradise, the resort offers 100 square meters of indoor meeting space, and of course the property will have wedding facilities and outdoor settings for intimate to large gatherings.
Food and beverage options includes a French brasserie, a beach restaurant serving Polynesian and Mediterranean food, and a contemporary Chinese restaurant. The swim-up pool bar and overwater sunset bar and lounge offer light fare.
Conrad Bora Bora Nui has its own private islet of Motu Tapu, an idyllic spot wedding photography, picnics, and candlelit dinners straight out of a reality-TV fantasy date. Its white sand beaches, lush greenery, and turquoise water make for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
“We are delighted to continue our relationship with Hilton Worldwide and bring the Conrad brand to the South Pacific with the debut of Conrad Bora Bora Nui,” said Louis Wane, owner of Conrad Bora Bora Nui. “With our magical location in Bora Bora and the Conrad brand’s modern approach to luxury, we look forward to offering our guests a truly exceptional stay in French Polynesia.”
