Pearl Beach Resort, French Polynesia

Pearl Beach Resort

The Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort is located on Motu Tevairoa, one of the white-sand beach islets surrounding the Bora Bora lagoon, and therefore benefits from views back across the lagoon to the peaks of Mount Otemanu. Onsite, there are two restaurants with lagoon views, and a wealth of activities and excursions are available. The Polynesian-style bungalows are all air conditioned, and are either nestled in the tropical gardens, perched along the beach front, or over the lagoon itself, with direct access to the water from your private deck. With regular shuttles available to the main island, you can choose to do as much or as little as you like.

There are 80 bungalows and suites at the resort, decorated in Polynesian style using natural materials. Each features air conditioning, ceiling fan, tea and coffee facilities, minibar, TV and CD player.


The Pearl Beach Resort enjoys an enviable location in a secluded spot to the west of Bora Bora where you can’t see other resorts, just views of the island. It’s perched on small, narrow beach overlooking a shallow lagoon. There is a regular boat shuttle to the island of Bora Bora, which is just 5 minutes away.

Food and drink

The Pearl Resort has two restaurants and a bar located on the property, which are largely informal and have both indoor or outdoor seating. The main dining room, Tevairoa, overlooks the Bora Bora lagoon, with a view of Mount Otemanu, and is open for breakfast and dinner, which is normally a la carte though there are regular, themed buffet nights. Set by the pool, the Miki Miki Restaurant is open 11am – 8.30pm (excluding Monday evenings) for more casual meals. There are also several restaurants on Bora Bora itself and the hotel can arrange for a local restaurant to pick you up and drop you off at the hotel’s shuttle boat pier if you would like to eat out.


The resort welcomes guests of all ages although there are no specific children's facilities other than babysitting on request at a local charge. Please note the overwater bungalows aren't suitable for small children.

Facilities and activities

The pool overlooks the lagoon and its sheltered cove, where you can get excellent conditions for kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding. There's a small coral nursery next to the overwater bungalows with a variety of fish, and the hotel provides snorkeling gear. You can play tennis, volleyball, mini golf and bocce in the resort's gardens.

Our opinion

Unmatched views make this resort hard to beat and the Polynesian style makes a refreshing change from many of the generic international luxury resorts in the region.
