Viatape cruise port to Bora Bora Pearl beach resort

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever stayed in the overwater bungalows during your overnight stay in Bora Bora on a cruise? How did you get to the resort from the cruise port & how long does it take? Was it just as easy getting back on the return day?

Depends on where you are staying  .... and how you booked it. If your going to book yourself I would tell you to stay at the Conrad Hilton as their boat shuttle goes between the tender drop off and the resort. If you are on the PG and you book through PG for the Thalasso the transfers will be taken care of. The Pearl is a bit more of a challenge. The resort has a shuttle but usually drops you off on the main island just across from the resort, then there is a land shuttle/taxi that can be arranged to come and get you in Vitape and vice-versa.  Of course things may be different if your on a different ship.

TBK is right- it is a bit tricky to get to Vaitape from BB Pearl but very doable. You take a land taxi to the landing where the Pearl's regular boat shuttle brings you to the resort. The taxi ride doesn't take more than 5-10 minutes. But one other option. When we were there there was a once a day direct catamaran ride from the resort directly to Vaitape. It was $20 each way. Things may have changed- it might run more frequently or at a time that matches up perfectly to when you plan to travel to and from the resort.

 

It's been almost 3 years for me but the Pearl was fabulous- what a spot! They have a coral reef nursery and the snorkeling was superb. Be sure to email the concierge to see if anything has changed regarding pickup. Just one thing....I've heard that the Pearl is undergoing renovation winter 2019. Hope you can confirm that time frame.
