The catch is that for the past few years, saver level free night availability at this hotel has been very hard to come by. When there has been availability, it has often only been for a week or so over the course of the entire year.
There’s some great news on that front. Currently award availability at the Conrad Bora Bora is wide open all the way through the end of 2022.
When there is standard award availability, you can expect to pay 89,000 Hilton Honors points per night. If you have any Hilton Honors elite status, you get a fifth night free on award redemptions, meaning you’d pay a total of 356,000 points, which comes out to 71,200 points per night. That’s a phenomenal value.
Personally I value Hilton Honors points at 0.5 cents each (and Hilton often sells points at that cost too, including right now), so to me that’s like paying as little as $356 per night for a stay here.
As a point of comparison, if paying cash, the same nights as above would cost just over $6,000 including all taxes and fees.
As you can see, that’s an exceptional value. A few more things to note:
- Standard rooms here are land villas, though if you prefer an overwater villa, you can buy-up to that, or you may receive it as an upgrade
- Hilton Honors Gold and Hilton Honors Diamond status is easy to earn with credit cards, and that can score you free breakfast and room upgrades
- You can of course also redeem Hilton free night certificates here, if you prefer
- In order to visit French Polynesia as a tourist you need to be fully vaccinated (which for some people will make them feel even more comfortable traveling there)
If you’ve been dreaming of going to Bora Bora, I’d absolutely consider locking in an award with this opportunity.
Anyone planning a trip to the Conrad Bora Bora with this award availability?
