Once in a Half Century Package at Four Seasons Bora Bora
Few among up know this piece of history: 2017 marks the 50th year the overwater bungalow has been delighting vacationers at exclusive South Pacific resorts. In fact, the first overwater bungalow was open for the booking in 1967 in French Polynesia on the island of Raiatea.
Today, Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora offers 100 overwater bungalow suites (15 with private plunge pools), ranging in size from 1,120 – 2,228 square feet (104 – 207 square meters.) Each designed with traditional thatched roofs, indigenous Polynesian artwork, modern flair and privacy in mind. And to celebrate, the resort is offering a €1,967 ($2,081) resort credit, which is applied to stays of six or more consecutive nights, and can be used by guests on resort charges such as dining, activities and spa experiences.
The Resort has recently introduced offering private jet charters from Los Angeles to Bora Bora. In partnership with Aircraft Logix, this new service provides non-stop flights from the executive terminals of Los Angeles area airports (including LAX, VNY and others) – bypassing the hassles of commercial air travel, and boarding directly onto a Gulfstream G550 or other large cabin aircraft private charter. Guests have the year-round option of an exclusive private charter (one party of up to 12 guests), or a shared private charter (with other Four Seasons guests) over select dates throughout 2017.
Both private and shared charter options are offered with select accommodations and activities, providing a truly personalized experience. The charter shuttle service is provided as a complimentary value added consideration, exclusively for guests of Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora.
