Where are you seeing point openings? I don't see any on my end, for any month. Not even for a single night.

Former employees of the Méridien Bora Bora and the Sofitel Bora Bora responded to the call. The recruitment department is looking for 230 employees in different positions. After answering a questionnaire, people were received for an individual interview, CV in hand.

Bookings have opened! I am booked for January 2025 for around 80K/night for an overwater villa - not bad.

Booked 6 nights speculatively, let's see if rates hold for more favorable months - weather wise!

Be interesting to see how long the current "cancellation" policy holds. 2 days is too generous for BoB

It's brutally high, is it not??

Resort fees are usually like $20 (and they're such a scam regardless)...

It’s in line for the caliber of property that it is. Look at StR Bal Harbour and StR Bahia Beach.
