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.
