Conrad Bora Bora Nui

Nowhere else in Tahiti say romance and adventure like Bora Bora.  Graced with perfect beaches, the Bora Bora hotels in this South Seas jewel offer privacy and relaxation.  Its dramatic peaks and shimmering lagoon will quickly put you under their spell.  Explore surrounding islands by outrigger canoe, snorkel its clear blue waters, or shop for pearls at one of it many chic boutiques on a Bora Bora Vacation. 


GETTING TO BORA BORA: you will depart from Los Angeles on Air Tahiti Nui Airlines and leave at 10:50 pm and arrive in Papeete, the capital of Tahiti at 5am; a little over an eight hour flight. A flight from Papeete to Bora Bora departs at 6:45am and is a 50-minute flight. 


There are about 7 flights per day from Tahiti to Bora Bora, starting at 6:45am and the last one going out at 5:10pm. Most go nonstop to Bora Bora, but a few of them stop off at another island for 15 minutes to drop off and pick up passengers.

  • Conrad Bora Bora Nui  5 Star 

  • The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort 5 star

We have worked with Rey for many years and have always enjoyed the experience. Most of our travel has been river cruises in Europe but last year we did a trip to South Africa. Rey is very thoughtful, thorough and responsive.

Another fabulous trip!
Rey has booked several domestic and international trips for me over the years. Each time the experience was fantastic. Rey is not only a knowledgeable and experienced travel agent, he is patient with groups and always provides stellar customer service. The resorts are always fabulous and his recommendations on what to do when we arrive at our destinations make my vacations more enjoyable. I’ve counted on Rey to book fabulous vacations for over 10 years and he always delivers the best. I’ve always enjoyed the individual attention and care Rey provides his clients. He understands the apprehension that comes along with trying new places and is thorough and accommodating as a result. He’s also great at making suggestions on future vacations and I’ve never been disappointed when I follow his suggestions. Rey will remain my travel confidante for many years to come. He’s the best, hands down!

July 4th Fun!!!
Rey and the Almeda Travel family have been so good to my family in assisting us in all of our travel needs/goals from beginning to return. Rey has shown nothing but the utmost professionalism, patience,guidance, and quality service that is so difficult to find these days. We have trusted Almeda Travel for the last 5-6 years for our vacations and will continue to do so, I also strongly recommend if you’re looking for an agent/team that is knowledgeable and consumer responsive go with Almeda Travel!
