When I tell people I have just been at The Four Seasons Bora Bora their eyes sparkle with a skeptical curiosity….Asking innocently ‘did you have a good time?’ but really meaning ‘it wasn’t as good as it looks was it?’
As I pull out my iPhone and begin smugly swiping through my photos of aquamarine perfection (with an ecstatic yours truly in the foreground), their faces drop. Some of the more optimistic may suggest hopefully ‘photoshop?’ Sorry guys… it really is that good!
From the moment you are welcomed off the plane by warm, smiling faces and draped in sweetly scented tropical lays, the holiday begins. The next thing you know, you are cruising through the impossibly clear waters on a vintage, wooden speedboat with your fellow linen-clad guests, all grinning madly.
Arriving at the Four Seasons we were welcomed off the boat by the hotel manager & escorted seamlessly to our bungalow for an in-room check-in. We stayed in a one bedroom overwater bungalow that was super spacious with a separate living area, gorgeous bathroom, bedroom area with a full wardrobe and our much adored outdoor terrace with private lagoon access, heaven. That Mary Poppins moment where you feel like you are living in a picture!
The next question people tend to ask is ‘isn’t it exorbitantly expensive?’ Well the answer to this is simply yes. However, it is not often that you can be guaranteed the perfect holiday by even the most discerning of standards…So those willing to splash out a little extra hard-earned for that special occasion or simply an unforgettable experience will reap the rewards.
I really regret having the most perfect holiday of my life…said no one… ever!
