Two Bora Bora Properties Honored on Travel + Leisure’s “T+L 500 World’s Best Hotels 2013” List
Bora Bora is home to the two properties named in the French Polynesia category of Travel + Leisure’s “T+L 500 World’s Best Hotels 2013” list – one of the magazine’s prestigious annual readers’ surveys.  Both the Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora and the St. Regis Bora Bora Resort made their debut on the list this year.  The Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora was also honored as “top-ranked for romance.”

Seven properties, located throughout the Islands of Tahiti, were named in the French Polynesia category of the Condé Nast Traveler’s 2013 Gold List – The World’s Best Places to Stay. The Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora scored as the number one hotel in French Polynesia and the Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort and Spa made its debut on the list this year.

Also honored on the list is the Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort & Spa, InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa, Huahine Te Tiare Beach Resort, Moorea Pearl Resort & Spa and Le Taha’a Island Resort & Spa.

We are also pleased to announce that the m/s Paul Gauguin was honored as one of the “Top 20 Small Cruise Ships” in 2013.

The annual Gold List is based on the Readers’ Choice Awards, and reflects the combined opinions of 46,476 Condé Nast Traveler readers rating the cities, islands, and hotels they visited in the past year, and the airlines and cruise ships they travelled with. The Gold List is featured in the January 2013 issue of Condé Nast Traveler.
