Le Méridien – Bora Bora, French Polynesia
From £1015 or $1496 per night (Booking.com)
Nestled on the pristine white sands of an exotic island and surrounded by the warm cerulean waters of a private lagoon, this is a dream island paradise. Le Méridien beckons visitors to Bora Bora with a location that is hard to beat. Boasting natural wonders in abundance, it must be seen to be believed. Tranquil, romantic and always peaceful, this is the perfect retreat for those keen to escape modern life and all its pressures.
Guests can stay in incredible overwater bungalows, which stand on stilts with glass floors that provide a fascinating glimpse of the marine life here, from the cosiness of your bed! From each bungalow, a ladder will allow you to effortlessly slip into the crystal waters.
To help exploring the stunning surrounding, kayaks, outrigger canoes and pedal boats are all available to you. Visit the nearby turtle sanctuary and feed the turtles; go on a diving excursion to get up close to the marine life in their natural habitat, or, simply lounge at the poolside bar enjoying a book, a cocktail and the knowledge that you’re in paradise.
