Six of the best: Bora Bora resorts

Le Meridien Bora Bora: Although not as luxurious as some resorts, Le Meridien stands out for its location. It feels remote, perched on a large island at the southern end of Bora Bora's lagoon. Overwater bungalows have glass floors that mesmerise with glimpses of passing tropical fish. The resort also has its own mini-lagoon. Just wade into the shallow water and swim among hawksbill turtles. An educational program teaches guests more about these increasingly endangered creatures. At sunset, sit at the Miki Miki Bar and find the perfect cocktail spot.
