Bora Bora by Sunset was finally launched on June 3 2011 after much work and sweat from staffs of the defunk Sunset Bistro which was burnt to ashes late January 2011 ....its a reincarnation of sunset bistro reborn with a new twist. created by Yusri with a rather similar ambiance of a beach and free life....the staffs are the same and so does everything familiar with what sunset bistro used to offer...its more refine with a bigger bar and a cool shady shack even the heaviest monsoon rain couldn't even drop on you....situated by the beach and extended down to the edge of the water complimented with shaddy umbrellas and a big platform overseeing the sunset and the water of enchanting Ferringhi...Bora Bora which means water..and water it is best is what we offer to quench your thirst from noon till midnight daily even on holidays even meaning to sacrifice our rest just to honour and serve all our clients to the best..kitchen is new and spacious to cater for whatever craving you guys need to fill up the empty stomach with care and taste of a wonderful bistro exotic.

Yes, this place is lovely on a nice day when you can sit outside to watch the beach, the sea, and the sunset. We were let down by the weather, and had to sit inside. The place is fairly spacious, but quite dark to convey...More

Probably a decent bar for younger visitors holidaying at a Batu Ferringhi resort. We stopped by for a quick bite to eat as a change from our local favourites in Tanjung Tokong. Service was attentive and friendly and the beach side location is attractive. We...More

Only drank here so no experience of the food. This was a nicely located bar with a good atmosphere. The service was excellent and the prices during happy hour are reasonable. Will be going back.

Big friendly bar right on the beach. Plenty of tables and a good menu. Service was excellent and food well priced. Alcohol expensive as usual for Malaysia

Wow, what can i say about Bora Bora on the Batu Ferringhi beach. The view: from blue through grey in to red, orange and yellow, the sunset here is amazing. The entertainment: there are horses everywhere to ride, parasailing holidaymakers float past every few minutes,...More
