We got a great tip today in the Frequent Miler Insiders Facebook group that the Conrad Bora Bora Nui has a lot of standard room award availability from September to November 2022.
You can view award availability here, with that search being set for one night using flexible dates. At the time of writing this, September has 19 nights available for 89,000 points per night, October has 28 days and November has 9 days, although the award calendar is only open for stays through mid-November right now.
This can therefore be a fantastic use of Hilton free night certificates, whether earned from the Hilton Aspire credit card each year or from that and some other Hilton cards when completing various levels of spend in a calendar year. There’s also a targeted offer right now for a free night certificate when spending only $8,000.
If you don’t have many free night certificates and/or want to stay a little longer, Hilton offers every 5th night free on award stays for anyone with Silver status or higher. When booking in five night increments, that reduces the 89,000 points per night cost to an average of 71,200 points per night.
The trickier part can be finding award availability in five night increments. When doing a one night flexible date award search, it certainly seems like there’s plenty of availability in five night increments. However, when doing a five night flexible date search, there seems to be fewer options. I haven’t delved too deeply on this, but I think that’s sometimes because although there are standard room award nights available, the available room type alternates which means that it’s not possible to book five consecutive nights in one room type. Other times it’s because there’s at least one premium room award night for at least one of the nights during any given five night period, but have a play around with dates you’re interested in, using the flexible calendar to help you identify eligible dates for longer stays.
We have a few free nights of our own to burn now that Hilton has extended many free night certificates through December 31, 2022. This availability therefore has me tempted, especially seeing as we’ll be earning at least four more certificates this year for any other stays we might want to use them on. There’s no guarantee that this availability will last (and I suspect it won’t), so it’d be best to book ASAP if you’re interested.
Note that depending on the dates you’re interested in visiting, award flight availability might not have opened up just yet. However, that’s not necessarily a bad thing because it hopefully means you can jump on award flights as soon as they open up in the coming days and weeks.
Nick stayed at both the Conrad Bora Bora and St Regis Bora Bora a couple of years ago and wrote several comprehensive posts about his experiences and provided a lot of tips, so I’d highly recommend checking these out if you decide to jump on this good award availability at the Conrad Bora Bora.
