Bora Bora Pricing Note & Guidelines:

TAHITI SUN TRAVEL doesn't list specific prices of rooms for it's listings simply because they are subject to too many changes! We would rarely be able to claim accuracy and would constantly be updating and changing prices according to the economy fluctuations of French Polynesia.

The hotels who have their own direct linking websites are responsible for their own pricing updates and take care of that business themselves.

Instead, we offer the following pricing structure as a ROUGH GUIDE for you to help plan your vacation budget on Bora bora. Note that these rates are a little higher on Bora bora than on most of the other less touristed Society islands.

TOP END
From $251.00- 900.00+/ night

MID-RANGE
From $81.00- 250.00/ night

BUDGET / CAMPING
From $12.00 (camping)- 80.00/ night

Prices are given in approximate US DOLLARS. For dollars to XPF info and accurate conversion rates, click here.

Mid-Range: 2 & 3 Star Hotels, Motels, & Family Run Pensions

These category of accomodations varies greatly throughout Tahiti- Polynesia.

Some are quite luxurious, although slightly less so than the top of the line resorts listed above. Many are also not so luxurious, but what you'll save in dollars may end up being a worthy tradeoff. They range from various 2 and 3 star hotels and motels to what the French Polynesians call "Pensions" which are basically family run operations, often with family style service.

Since the majority of places to stay on all the Tahitian islands consist of these mid-range style accomodations, you might imagine there is also a great variation in quality, service, and facilities... Explore the listings and links below for details.

(In an effort to organize them, some are marked with letter abbreviations which describe their basic category listing according to the Tahiti Tourism Bureau. For category descriptions, please see the chart.)

Budget: Pensions, Lodging in Private Homes, Camping

Listed below are refuges for those of you on a tight budget or wishing to save your hard earned money on various activities or Island hopping rather than on lodging.

Amenities can be a bit stark compared to some other more expensive places to stay on Bora Bora, but just because it's budget doesn't mean it isn't a great place to stay. Backpackers, students, long term travelers, or campers love these places... Accomodations are often simple bungalows, dorm style cottages or rooms utilizing communal style bathrooms, kitchens, and showers.

Camping areas all share the use of above mentioned amenities, unless you're really into roughing it, in which case you won't be staying at these areas anyway. (Go to our camping section for more info on camping in Tahiti Polynesia.) Hint for campers: Bring your own tent.

In our humble opinion, many of these budget accomodations are among the best places to stay on all the islands of French Polynesia due to their "family touch."

They are the easiest places to have personal contact and interact with the islanders, which most people will find extremely rewarding. Most, if not all these accomodations are run by family members and they are often very friendly, outgoing, and interesting to meet for any traveler. Great sources of Island information, these locals also can help you organize the many island activities and sights you will be pursuing while on Bora bora.

(In an effort to organize them, they are marked with a letter code which describes their basic category listing according to the Tahiti Tourism Bureau. For category descriptions, please see the pension chart.)
