If you’ve been wanting to head to Bora Bora using your points, now might be the day to book.

According to Loyalty Lobby, there is currently wide open award space at the Conrad Bora Bora Nui from just 89,000 Hilton Honors points per night. This is a notoriously difficult property to book with points, with availability at the lower point rates typically quite scarce. However, through May 2022, you can book this resort on many dates for just 89,000 Hilton points per night.

Add in the fifth-night-free benefit and the average price for a five-night stay drops to 71,200 points per night. You’ll want to act quickly because there’s no telling how long this availability will be around.

Sample dates

You can book the Conrad Bora Bora on points between now and May 2022. You should see lots of availability this fall and even in December.

Meanwhile, cash rates go as high as $1,101 on Dec. 21-23, 2021.

TPG values Hilton points at 0.6 cents each at so this is an exceptional use of points, getting you well over 1.2 cents in value. As mentioned, if you can take advantage of Hilton’s fifth-night free benefit, you can bring the nightly rate down to just 71,200 points, which is incredible for a high-end Bora Bora resort.

While award space is fairly plentiful, there are days when you’ll see rates above 89,000 points per night. Be sure to check the “flexible dates” box in the search tool to see award availability across multiple dates. I would go an extra step and search in one-night increments for the best overview of availability.

Boost your Hilton point balance

There are a variety of ways to boost your Hilton balance for award redemptions like this. Credit card sign-up bonuses are the best way to stock up on lots of points, though that often takes several billing cycles while you complete the spending requirement.

You can also transfer American Express Membership Rewards to Hilton Honors instantly at a 1:2 ratio. This isn’t usually the best option, since Amex Membership Rewards are valued at 2 cents each, which is less than the value you’ll get out of your Hilton points for this award.

Still, it’s worth knowing if you’re a couple of thousand points short of an award night at the Conrad Bora Bora Nui. You can also currently purchase Hilton points at about 1 cent each, which could help you close the gap to the booking you want.

And once you have your resort stay lined up, here are some ways you can fly to Tahiti using your airline miles.
