One of the most compelling factors for people coming to Bora Bora is to see the drop-dead, knock-out lagoon for which Bora Bora is world famous; to see the most beautiful lagoon in the world.
If this is high on your priorities then Hotel Matira may just be for you! Perched over the very best of what Matira has to offer, Hotel Matira has 14 traditional bungalows in different sleeping configurations overlooking a large lawn which flows down to stunning turquoise waters of every shade. You can sit for hours watching the shades of blue change or marvel at the clarity of the water as you watch sting rays or fish swim nonchalantly past:
The hotel is set out as a village of sorts with differing sizes in spaces between bungalows, some with lagoon views, others with garden views:
The bungalows are comfortable with the feeling of warmth that only wood provides; selectively decorated so as not to feel claustrophobic, fully equipped & with the nice Polynesian touch of daily fresh flowers it can’t get much better than this. Breakfast is served to you in your bungalow each day:
The Hotel Matira is within walking distance of many of Bora Bora’s finer restaurants & snacks like the Restaurant Matira Beach & the Restaurant Fare Manuia whilst La Tahitienne, Bloody Mary’s & even Villa Mahana are not much further. Check out our Restaurant – Dining Report for a comprehensive review of the better restaurants in the area.
The Hotel Matira is also within a stone’s throw of many of the leading tour operators on Bora Bora offering jet ski & quad tours, lagoon cruises, shark & sting ray feeding, swimming with manta rays, moon parties……whatever grabs you. Best of all you can go & deal direct with the tour operators & save substantial commissions that may otherwise need to be paid.
The coral garden scuba diving area is almost on your doorstep as are two of the most difficult to reach American WWII cannons – see this site’s report on Locating the American WWII Cannons for full & complete information. If you are considering a tour around the island I strongly suggest you read the report on the Bora Bora Road Tour on this site. Then, the big one – you will have seen the cave clinging to Mt Otemanu covered in the report Mt Otemanu’s Cave. Go climb it for yourself!
Located on the turn-off to Point Matira. Promotional offers can often be secured for longer stays (3 nights or more) bringing these bungalows to below 150Euros per night – sensational value! The bungalow closest to the road – management will openly tell you – can be a little noisy for those not used to sound of intermittent traffic.
