“Love is in the air” from the moment you touch down at Bora Bora according to Cass King on Facebook, who told us her favorite place for a romantic rendezvous is this delightful tropical island escape.
Are you ready for the schmooze? Let’s sashay down to the beach, sip a cocktail or two and look at the 5 most romantic indulgences that this Tahitian territory can dish out:
1. Sunset sailing
Grab the hand of your honey for a sail into the sunset on your very own private catamaran. Breathe in the aroma of love as you are served a delectable 4-course meal by the gorgeous local staff. The soothing sounds of Polynesian music drifts on the breeze while you snuggle and kiss on the deck, following the call of the ocean as the sun sets into the sea.
2. Breakfast in bed
Awaken from a night of passion to the sound of the waves softly lapping beneath your overwater bungalow. Stretch and arise to a scrumptious Polynesian breakfast conveyed to your private balcony on an outrigger canoe smothered in flowers. We recommend the Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora or Intercontinental Le Moana Resort for this indulgent experience.
3. A spa for two
Luxuriate with your lover at a famous Tahitian spa with Polynesian oils to pamper your mind, body and spirit as you lay back and enjoy your time in tandem. With treatments tailored for one or two, bathe in the scent of fresh tropical flowers, release any tension with a heated stone massage or wrap yourselves up in fresh banana tree leaves. Take your pick, you’ll find gorgeous day spas at all the luxury hotels in Bora Bora.
4. Special lunch for two
Enjoy a romantic gourmet meal for two on a deserted beach with white sand and coconut palms. Especially arranged for you and your lover, it includes a full dining setting in a secluded location with a selection of the finest local foods. Ask hotel concierge to organise this for you. The St Regis Resort and Hilton Bora Bora Nui offer two of the best private dining experiences.
5. Honeymooner’s paradise
Known as “The Pearl of the Pacific”, Bora Bora is the perfect dreamy setting for the most important day of your life and the start of wedded bliss. Declare your love in front of an intimate gathering of friends and family, on a secluded beach in pristine surroundings. Then retreat to your honeymoon hideaway to explore your passion. Be warned, paradise ain’t cheap!
