In the middle of the South Pacific Ocean, northwest of Tahiti, lies Bora Bora, a bucket list destination for many couples seeking the ultimate romantic getaway. Beyoncé and Jay-Z flew to this paradise island for their babymoon. Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban honeymooned here. So did Paris Hilton and Carter Reum. A destination that lures A-list celebrities must cost a fortune, right? Yes and no. A holiday in Bora Bora is expensive, but it can be done somewhat affordably. Let’s look at the average cost of honeymoon in Bora Bora.

How Much Do Couples Spend In Bora Bora?

The average cost of honeymoon in Bora Bora is around $7,000 to $10,000 per couple for a 7-day trip.

This amount can vary depending on where you come from, as flight prices make up a large part of your budget. If you plan to splurge on a 5-night stay in an overwater bungalow or a private beach villa, fancy dinners, and private tours, expect to shell out $26,000 and up.

But if you’re on a tight budget, you can cut your expenses by booking a standard room in a beachfront hotel or renting a condo. Go for casual restaurants, or better yet, prepare your own food. Instead of private activities, join group tours. These will help reduce your costs for a more affordable vacation.

Cost Of Getting To Bora Bora

If you’re coming from North America, economy class flights range between $1,000 to $5,000 per person round-trip while business class will cost around $7,000 to $10,000+ per person round-trip. This greatly depends on your point of origin. At the time of publication, there are no direct flights from the U.S. to Bora Bora as you’ll need to transfer in the main Island of Tahiti.

If you’re on a budget, check out the low-cost airline, French bee, which offers direct flights to Tahiti from New York, San Francisco, San Diego, and Los Angeles. Fares to Tahiti start at $329 one-way per person (you’ll still need to factor in the cost of an inter-island flight).

Costs from European cities range from $1,500 to $3,000 per person round-trip for economy class and $10,000+ per person round-trip for first class. French bee also flies from Paris to Tahiti for a low-fare option.

Flights from Asia range between $1,500 and $3,000 per person round-trip for economy fares and $15,000+ per person round-trip for business class. Flights from Australia or New Zealand range from $1,000 to $2,000 per person round-trip for economy and around $5,000 to $10,000+ per person round-trip for first-class fares.

Cost Of Bora Bora Accommodations

Ultra-lux hotels, private villas, and overwater bungalows range from $1,000 to $10,000+ per night. Mid-range lodging, such as standard hotel rooms, condos, and modest overwater villas, ranges between $150 to $300+ per night. You can also find guest houses, apartments, and decent hotels for as low as $100 per night for a budget stay.

Cost Of Food And Activities In Bora Bora

For fancy dining at high-end eateries such as the Lagoon Restaurant at The St. Regis, expect to spend between $80 to $100 per course. Casual dining with mid-range prices is about $25 or more for each meal (per person). You can also try food stands, snack bars, pizzerias, and grocery stores for as low as $10 per meal, per person.

Private activities, including lagoon tours, helicopter rides, whale watching, and snorkeling, cost $200 to more than $1,500 per person. You can save by joining a group tour or group activity instead. Prepare to spend about $50 to $200 per person per day for various group activities.

FAQs

The most inexpensive bungalows can be found at the Maitai Polynesia Bora Bora while the St. Regis Bora Bora and Four Seasons have the most expensive bungalows.
