10/10 Exceptional

Blue Heaven Island is not a hotel. It’s like staying at your friend’s private island. Jimmy and Eli will treat you as their own houseguests, welcoming you with kindness and an eagerness to please. There is absolutely nothing on the island but nature itself. No cars, restaurants, tv, or bars. It is nature’s paradise. Jimmy’s French-Polynesian cooking is sublime and for a fee they can take you to the main island of Bora Bora if you want to shop or visit an island attraction. My children spent hours snorkeling in the lagoon, eating mangoes, and looking for crabs. I had quality time with myself and my book. My children had freedom to play in the shallow placid water without any people around to worry about. The kayaks are free, the fish are everywhere and the sunsets are beyond postcard perfect. If you are coming to the islands for the quintessential tourist protocol I suggest a big hotel. You won’t find a drop of alcohol here except for what you bring yourself. If you are coming to have a true island experience, alone with very few people, Blue Heaven Island is a humble retreat I feel so lucky to have known. It’s important to know this is not the Four Seasons, these are real bungalows with real palm roofs and real coral reefs and all the discomforts that may come with that. We did not suffer a bit, but this is not a luxury resort. I imagine there are few places left on the planet that are this isolated and yet open to the public. It is a gem.

2/10 Poor

Beautiful location I discovered while snorkeling but sadly a total scam. I booked and paid for a room for two nights, the hotel emailed to say there was no availability but never cancelled the reservation, even though I asked them to (if the cancellation came from me, Orbitz would have charged a cancellation fee). Not only was it stressful not knowing if I had a place ro stay, but also Blue Heaven took the money for a hotel stay that never happened. (There are no water taxis, so there is no way to get there without their help/pickup). No refund, no apology, no communication whatsoever. I have been trying to reach them ever since - by phone, email, orbitz - but have never been able to reach them again. Orbitz is unwilling to refund the charge. So really a combined Orbitz/Blue Heaven scam. Stay away. There are so many beautiful, affordable, family-run hotels on Bora Bora. Don’t let this place ruin your holiday.

Lovely, a little rough
The good: the snorkeling, view and ambience here is close to ideal. The channel next to this motu is perfect (its where the pricey resorts bring guests to snorkel - but they wont impact your stay). We spent most of the day on the raised decks watching the colors and changing weather. Its incredibly beautiful. You can snorkel from the beach and you are instantly there - or go for a 2 hour float around the channel. There are several good paddle boats. Host Jimmie - chef, snorkel guide and coconut master - provides wholesome meals and as much or little assistance as you need. (Meal prices were about $40 for dinner and $25 for breakfast - brkfst was pretty much same every morning). The not-so-good: No wine or spirits. Fortunately we came fortified with enough of our own supply of cocktails, but evening wine was missed. I suppose you can be taken into town (for a price) to get your own. This may be due to the recent covid issues - we were the only ones at the resort - and i believe the websight says they do have wine? There are no chairs outside your bungalow. This is not a place you will find very comfortable hanging out in your room. The property feels a bit worn and unkempt - again, not sure if this a temporary condition due to lack of guests. The motu has several other structures on it, some abandoned, some occupied, so you wont have the island all to yourself Overall this is a wonderful alternative to the absurdly priced big resorts and will get you closer to nature.
Nasty weather coming

We really like the view and the spot itself for the snorkelling, it was great. The homemade dinner with fresh tuna steak or tuna sashimi etc was excellent. The complimentary dessert was really good too. We didn’t really like the absence of few services like wifi or to have to pay to go to the main island.

We really loved this place! The staff there is just amazing! Very helpful and kind. Makes you feel like you are family. The snorkeling there is probably the best on the island and you can use all of there kayaks and gear for free. The food they make is great and very well served! It is not like one of those big resorts it is more natural and real so do not expect any marble flooring or other crazy resort things. Definitely an amazing place that must be visited!!!!
