The Urology team at Brigham and Women’s Hospital is excited to host an international scientific conference on urology at the Conrad Bora Bora Nui, an exceptional hotel located in idyllic French Polynesia. We invite you to join us and learn a broad overview of many areas of our specialty from exceptional speakers: The faculty of Harvard Medical School, carefully selected keynote speakers and other guest faculty. The program's curriculum provides broad and inclusive content ranging from clinical controversies to specific new and innovative therapies. You can rely on this program for updates and advances that impact day-to-day practice, clinical decisions, and patient care. The scheduled program is also designed to include many hours of leisure time for you to combine all what French Polynesia has to offer with top-of-the-line CME and social activities. Read More +

Bora Bora is a world-renowned destination—and for good reason. Considered by many as the most spectacular place on Earth, Bora Bora draws visitors from all four corners of the planet with its serene and romantic setting. Here, you will feel as though the world is all your own. The Bora Bora lagoon will take your breath away with its supernatural beauty and crystal-clear turquoise waters. The area’s other notable features include villas perched on stilts, white sand beaches and spellbinding sunsets. In short, this paradise is the perfect place to relax and enjoy life at a slower pace, while gaining valuable insights from the faculty of Harvard Medical School and their guest speakers.

In the heart of this legendary lagoon is Motu Tapu, a private and deserted island that once belonged to Polynesian Queen Pomare IV. During her reign, which ended in 1877, she used it as her private beach and venue for high-society gatherings. Today, the uninhabited site is considered sacred, but will be made available to us for a special closing dinner. In a magical atmosphere under the starry French Polynesian sky, we will share a meal, a glass of wine and an unforgettable experience.

Moorea and Rangiroa

In addition to this scientific conference, we are offering optional extensions to Moorea and Rangiroa, two incredible destinations in French Polynesia.

Rates and details available soon.

 

Moorea
is an island located just 30 minutes by boat from Papeete, the capital of French Polynesia. With abundant marine life and diverse vegetation, this island is a natural playground for snorkeling and hiking enthusiasts. The vibrant spot offers numerous restaurants, a lookout, pineapple groves, bays, beaches and more. Adventurous travellers can tour the island by bike before soaking up some sun on the docks. Others may prefer renting a car and spending a few hours discovering the island’s secrets.

 

Rangiroa
is an atoll in the Tuamotu Archipelago located 50 minutes by plane from Bora Bora or Papeete. Few places in the world offer the same feeling of solitude and serenity. Rangiroa is a legendary diving destination known for its countless dolphins, small sharks, manta rays and thousands of colourful fish species. It is home to the world-renowned Tiputa Pass, a paradise for divers. Snorkelers interested in exploring the area can be dropped off by boat and let the gentle current carry them through, accompanied by a local guide.

Conrad Bora Bora

Conrad Bora Bora Nui is an exceptional 5-star hotel, the likes of which are rarely found throughout the world. Set away from other hotels in the heart of Bora Bora, it is a sanctuary of stillness with views of the ocean that stretch as far as the eye can see. The site includes 114 guest units and four outstanding restaurants. The entire hotel will be reserved exclusively for our scientific event.

Can only be accessed by boat

Like all hotels on the island, the property can only be accessed by boat. Anyone who has been to Bora Bora knows that arriving on the water is part of the unique island experience.

Bora Bora, which is also known as Porapora or Mai Te Pora (“Created by the Gods”), is composed of an extinct volcano surrounded by a lagoon and an outcrop of reef. The volcano emerged from the water 13 million years ago and is now flanked by this magnificent lagoon and a coral barrier. Entering the lagoon directly or by boat is always a singular experience.

Mount Otemanu

Mount Otemanu, visible from the Conrad Hotel, rises above the lagoon’s incredible display of colours. The hotel showcases Polynesian culture in its most luxurious and contemporary sense. Great care is taken to protect and promote the growth of indigenous flowers and trees on the hotel grounds. The volcanic rock on the side of the mountain was also preserved.

Part of the appeal

With a minimum size of 1,087 square feet, the hotel’s suites and villas are very spacious and comfortable. Each unit has its own private patio and opulent master bathroom. Part of the appeal of Bora Bora is that you get to enjoy the highest level of luxury, where top-of-the-line amenities are only rivalled by the lush natural surroundings and captivating views. Right from the hotel docks, guests can plunge into the water and swim among thousands of fish species. Large rays can also be seen in this veritable aquatic safari. Our stay in Bora Bora coincides with the time that humpback whales are present in the area, which typically runs from July to October. We will have the chance to spot them–and possibly even swim with them—just outside the lagoon. As of November, these large mammals head south toward the cold waters of Antarctica.

Motu Tapu

Signature Gala Dinner

In the heart of Bora Bora’s legendary lagoon is Motu Tapu, a private and deserted island that once belonged to Polynesian Queen Pomare IV. During her reign, which ended in 1877, she used it as her private beach and venue for high-society gatherings. No one was allowed to enter without her permission, which explains the island’s name of “Tapu,” which means “forbidden.”

Experience

In 1964, it was added to the list of natural sites and monuments whose conservation or preservation is of historic, artistic, scientific, legendary or folkloric interest to French Polynesia. Today, the uninhabited site is considered sacred, but will be made available to us for a special closing dinner. In a magical atmosphere under the starry French Polynesian sky, we will share a meal, a glass of wine and an unforgettable experience.

Catamarans

Catamarans will carry us from the hotel to the islet, where we will enjoy unobstructed views of the sunset with our feet planted in the sand or water. Chefs from the Conrad will lay out a sumptuous Polynesian buffet, which will be enhanced with music, wine and various surprises. The Signature Gala Dinner promises to be a truly exceptional event that will remain a cherished memory for years to come. This event is included in the cost of the trip for all physicians and companions.
