Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora, Motu Tehotu, French Polynesia

By Will Grice

Set on an island off northeast Bora Bora’s cerulean lagoon, this remote resort brings crystal-clear water and swathes of white sand together with uninterrupted views of the mainland’s emerald mountains. Stroll from the landscaped gardens surrounding a freeform infinity pool, restaurants and spa to wooden walkways that arch out to sea.

Teak-fitted overwater bungalows line these boardwalks, and each bungalow has glass floor panels so you can see the marine life pass below. Choose between a lagoon, beach or mountain view, then take it all in from your sundeck and plunge pool. Unwind with a rebalancing ritual infused with Tahitian black pearl at the waterside spa, or explore the Lagoon Sanctuary by paddleboard or with a snorkel — this area alone has more than 100 marine species.

Top suite: Three-bedroom Beachfront Villa Estate from $16,400 per night

Giving back: The resort’s marine biologist recently introduced a series of new conservation initiatives, including a coral-grafting program that you can take part in.
