Among the prestigious hotels established in Bora Bora, the Maitai Polynesia is located in a most ideal spot on the exceptional headland of Matira Point.

Sitting across from the islet of "Motu Piti Aau", most of the rooms and bungalows provide great views of the crystal clear lagoon where hues of green, aqua and blue mingle.

The hotel, entirely built in Tahitian style, opened in June 1998 and there are five room categories offered in this haven of serenity.

Nine new over water bungalows were recently added in an extension along with 20 air-conditioned rooms. Each room offers a dazzling view of the surroundings and overlooks the colorful lagoon.

The beach was widened and a restaurant, called the Tama'a Matai, built right on the sand completed the new extension.

The Maitai Polynesia is the only "intermediate" category hotel in Bora Bora offering full service at an incredible value for money.
