Award-Winning Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort Chosen as Location for ABC'S The Bachelorette Grand Finale
July 27 2010

ABC’s “Bachelorette Ends This Year's Globe-spanning Season with a Grand Finale on Bora Bora, Home to the Most Beautiful Lagoon in the World."

Award-Winning Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort Chosen as Location for "Last Chance Dates," "Meet the Parents" and the Final Rose Ceremony.

Two weeks ago, viewers tuned into ABC’s hit television show – “The Bachelorette” -- to watch Ali Fedotowosky and her final three bachelors experience the island of Taha’a in the South Seas paradise that is Tahiti.   Now the show’s globe-trotting season will come to its exciting conclusion on the most famous island in the South Pacific, Bora Bora, known for what author James Michener called “the most beautiful lagoon in the world.”

This true fantasy island will be the location for the final two bachelors to meet Ali’s parents, experience their “Last Chance Dates,” and participate in the famous Final Rose Ceremony.  Serving as a backdrop for all the fun is the Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa – whose suite-sized thatched roof villas were voted the “#1 Honeymoon Suite in the World” by Modern Bride Magazine. The seven-year-old resort has arguably the best location in the dream destination, including the island’s only hillside setting surrounding a sacred cove and a black rock peak said to be the playground of the Polynesian god Hiro.

The iconic, thatched-roof overwater bungalow has become a symbol of the Tahitian vacation experience.  Quite appropriately, the always anticipated introduction to the Bachelorette’s parents will take place in the first, two-story overwater bungalow in the island nation – in one of the Nui’s two, new amazing, Overwater Presidential Villas – the only such accommodations in French Polynesia.  

To make it easy for South Pacific dreamers to experience the same kinds of Bora Bora adventures that Ali and her bachelors did, the resort has launched a special “BORA BORA FOR LOVERS PACKAGE” which includes:

· 5 Nights in an Overwater Villa

· Motu Tapu Escape with Gourmet Island Picnic

· Daily International Breakfast Buffet

· Airport Boat Transfers

 Cost: $4,995.00 USD; Booking Code:  BACHELORETTE

About the Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa   
Guests arrive at the resort’s floating lobby via private yacht from the quaint Bora Bora airport.  Each room has a lagoon view and all are suite-sized; some perched on a lush tropical hillside, others along a white sand beach and still others “floating” above the crystal blue lagoon, complete with windows in the floor and a lanai with steps going directly to the water.

The 122-room resort weaves native materials like curly kahia wood, tapas cloth and mother of pearl throughout elegant spaces, beautifully intertwining island décor with the latest in modern conveniences.  The resort also features a hilltop, indoor-outdoor “spa-with-a-jaw-dropping-view;” a 1,000-meter infinity pool that seemingly melts into the lagoon; the Iriatai restaurant that pairs fine fusion cuisine with stunning horizon views; the Tamure Grill that offers casual, feet-in-the-sand dining; and a half-mile white sand beach with complimentary water toys.  

Exclusive features of the two, new Overwater Presidential Villas include an open air floor plan with modern island decor; deep, sleek bathtubs against full glass walls looking on the blue, blue lagoon; a plunge pool on the lower deck; a spiral staircase and a wellness/massage/sauna room upstairs along with a gazebo, hot tub and bar on the upstairs deck.  
Guests can also enjoy special excursions to the Nui’s very own, private, “deserted” island called Motu Tapu, which is the most photographed islet in the South Pacific.

About The Bachelorette

In the hit primetime romance reality series The Bachelorette, one lucky woman gets the opportunity to find the man of her dreams — and hopefully her groom-to-be — in this two-hour reality series. This single, very eligible bachelorette — a confident, successful and sensitive woman who is ready to find love — will embark on a romantic journey as she meets 25 handsome and intelligent men. As the Bachelorette gets to know each one, she'll continue to narrow the field. They will travel to exotic locations and spend time getting to know each other; she will introduce them to her family and friends and meet some of theirs. At the end of her romantic voyage, if she has found Mr. Right, will there be a proposal — and from whom? Hosted by Chris Harrison, The Bachelorette is produced by Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television.
