Bora Bora French Polynesia’s leading lady
Bora Bora French Polynesia’s leading lady: The inevitable love affair with this island begins right before you touch down.
The view from the plane window is a moment you will not soon forget. Have your camera in hand as you begin your descent and prepare for the moment when iconic Mount Otemanu comes into view.
From that point on, each experience will only continue to exceed even your highest expectations.
More than just a romantic ideal, Bora Bora is a romantic reality. It comes as no surprise that the island is an internationally acclaimed honeymoon destination.
Our newlyweds who decide on a Bora Bora honeymoon often feel as though they have escaped to a private oasis tailored entirely to their special moment of marital bliss—and anyone in the midst of planning a wedding can relate to just how enticing that sounds.
Where is Bora Bora, exactly? The island lies just northwest of Tahiti, less than an hour away by plane from Papeete.
The airport is located on a small, separate part of the island known as Motu Mete. Upon arrival, you will be greeted with a warm smile and fragrant flower lei and transferred by boat to your Bora Bora resort, meaning you hardly have to wait for your first encounter with the island’s famously translucent lagoon.
Stay in the largest overwater villas in the South Pacific, starting at 1,550 square feet, and revel in the turquoise blue waters visible from the glass panels.
For ultimate privacy, reserve a secluded beach villa surrounded by palms trees.
After your island adventure, swim in our Lagoonarium, workout in the fitness center, or unwind with a spa treatment.
Order a cocktail at the swim-up bar, or sample international and Polynesian-inspired cuisine at our four restaurants. Our resort offers an awe-inspiring backdrop for destination weddings, honeymoons and company retreats.
Bora Bora’s lagoon is an underwater world that hosts manta rays, sharks, gentle Napoleon wrasses, and other marine life which will welcome you while scuba diving, helmet diving or viewing from a glass-bottom boat.
There are many Bora Bora activities and opportunities to explore the lagoon, the motu, and the ocean. Options include – but aren’t limited to – fishing, cruises, jet skiing, kiteboarding, paddle boarding, outrigger canoe rides, kayaking, island tours and more.
Imagine catching a delicious tuna for dinner, paddling on a stand-up paddleboard to a private motu, having a decadent and fresh seafood lunch waterside, or snorkeling up-close and personal with hundreds of colorful marine animals.
Those who love an adrenaline rush can enjoy wakeboarding or tubing on the crystal waters, circling the coastline on a jet ski, or viewing the lagoon from a parasail, while those who love to lounge have a cocktail at the renowned Bloody Mary’s, or enjoy appetizers on a sunset cruise.
So don’t forget about taking a four-wheeler, going for a hike or taking it all in from the air in an unforgettable helicopter tour.
It’s easy to understand why this little 15 square mile island is revered as one of the most intimate and idyllic vacation destinations.
Every 50 minutes, flights to Bora Bora from Papeete and Moorea are available through Air Tahiti for those looking to island-hop.
