Few places on the planet are as synonymous with romance as French Polynesia and, in particular, Bora Bora. So good they named the place twice, it shouldn’t come as a great surprise that a luxury honeymoon in Bora Bora is as romantic as it gets.

Sure, it's a long way to French Polynesia, but that makes it all the more perfect a honeymoon destination, as people tend to have a bit more time on their hands. So where to start? It's probably best to kick off with the setting, which must be amongst the most fabulously romantic of any destination anywhere in the world. The water of the lagoon is textbook turquoise; the beaches are powdery white and their palm tree fringes a verdant green. Add in the extraordinarily dramatic mountain interior as a backdrop and Bora Bora might just possess the archetypal beach honeymoon landscape.

Not convinced? Then scatter the picture perfect lagoon with 5* properties featuring fabulous thatch-roofed villas on stilts over the water, throw in the some of most luxurious service, activities and facilities of any hotels on the planet and the attraction should become even clearer. Some examples - at one of the hotels you can order a romantic breakfast that is delivered by canoe to your villa; at others they can arrange a private beach dinner, sunset cruise or trip to feed stingrays. On the subject of stingrays, the possibilities for sub-aquatic adventures on Bora Bora are outstanding, with some of the finest dive and snorkel sites anywhere in the Pacific.

Back above board, basically we know all the best honeymoon hotels in Bora Bora personally, so can recommend the one(s) with the finest romantic restaurants, spoiling spas and perfect pools. Writing all this is making us feel really rather jealous!


Our honeymoon gift list service allows your friends and family to contribute to the cost of your Bora Bora honeymoon by giving money towards the overall cost of your Original Travel honeymoon.
