The Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora exudes an effortless luxury. Located on the northeastern side of the island along the…
Endless clear blue ocean, pristine white sand beach, a single palm tree lazing into view…Bora Bora is the paradise island you’ve always dreamt you would honeymoon on. The island’s natural beauty (think blazing sunsets, tropical flowers and a balmy climate) evokes a feeling of romance as soon as you and your newlywed arrive.
The island is not only rich with stunning scenery but with activities that are perfectly suited for honeymooners. Firstly, be sure to reserve a night (or two!) to cozy up with a bottle of bubbly and enjoy each other’s company under an array of stars. Because of the lack of light-pollution on the island the night sky is magnificent and should not be missed– you may even catch a shooting star. Next, don’t forget to book a couples massage on the beach. What better way to relax than to enjoy a massage while listening to the gentle crashing of waves? And of course, book an intimate dinner by the sea where you can enjoy 5-star service with your toes in the sand.
While relaxing beachside might be the first activity that comes to mind for your Bora Bora honeymoon there are numerous adventurous activities to do as well. Mount Otemanu is one of two peaks of an extinct volcano located at the center of the island. It will tower majestically in the background of your vacation photos. A hike is a popular way to enjoy Mount Otemanu but it’s not the only option. You can enjoy Mount Otemanu via a 4×4 tour, a boat tour, a helicopter tour as well.
All visitors to Bora Bora should take advantage of the stunning marine life that the area has to offer. Snorkeling and scuba diving is a huge attraction for visitors to the island. The serene blue waters surrounding the island are home to millions of colourful reef fish, sea turtles, starfish, manta rays and sharks. You can also enjoy a birds-eye view of the island and all of its offerings on a parasail adventure.
For the best gastronomy experience in Bora Bora, choose the most local ingredients. Unsurprisingly, seafood is a must and the fresh fish in French Polynesia can be found on nearly every menu. A popular dish is Poisson Cru: a dish of tuna marinated in lime and coconut. Another meal to try is the ‘fish of the gods’ or ‘saumon des diex’ in French.
While there are a number of exquisite resorts to choose from on the island it’s the over-water villas that immediately come to mind as luxury at it’s finest. The over-water villas offer a front-row seat to your own private slice of paradise. A stay in an over-water villa is the perfect way to disconnect from the rest of the world and focus on your new spouse!
