Hotel Matira Beach French Polynesia sits in the heart of popular Matira Beach, one of the few public access beaches in Bora Bora and a great spot for water activities. The no-thrills small and friendly hotel has spacious wooden bungalows and offers excellent value for money. A great holiday location but if you are after pampering and privacy, this may not be for you.

Hotel Amenities

All bungalows offer identical living with a large wooden veranda with writing table and lounge chair, before entering into the open plan bedroom with queen size bed and ceiling fan. Bathrooms are spacious with large shower.

The daytime reception sits in front of the property alongside the main road and separated by a rather unattractive cement wall. However, once inside, the resort has a spacious feel with pleasant tropical gardens. There is no restaurant on site although the owners have a restaurant further along Matira Beach (about 5 minutes walk) which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are several other independent restaurants within walking distance.
