Bora Bora Honeymoons 2020/2021

At Turquoise Holidays, we are proud of our reputation as the world’s most romantic holiday company, and from our many years of honeymoon experience, we can whole-heartedly declare Bora Bora to be the most romantic island in the world. Even its name (which was originally Pora Pora but Captain Cook misheard the gentle Tahitian accent and so it became Bora Bora) conjures up images of tantalising kisses in the soft surf, beach picnics on deserted islets and the heady scent of frangipani and hibiscus around your sun-drenched day bed, before the French Polynesian moonlit night works its magic under the starry skies. All of this is like a Bora Bora honeymoon package from heaven.

This isn't a dream, this is your Bora Bora honeymoon! If the heavenly combination of turquoise lagoons, lush green mountains, snorkelling, diving, chilled cocktails, sunshine, white sand beaches and palm trees strikes a chord with your honeymoon desires, then you should look no further than this idyllic corner of French Polynesia. Of course, we can't forget its famous overwater bungalows, your very own Bora Bora honeymoon hut! With all of this awaiting you, you can depend on Bora Bora to work her magic!

Bora Bora tips

Top five tips for a honeymoon in Bora Bora

Arrive by helicopter  

Many of the resorts have their own helipad and the vista that awaits you will set the scene for the rest of your honeymoon in Bora Bora.

Stay in an overwater bungalow  

Invest in the most romantic overwater bungalow you can afford. Nothing beats sleeping over the turquoise waters of Bora Bora on your luxury honeymoon. For maximum impact, we recommend checking into an out-of-this-world overwater villa at The St. Regis Bora Bora or Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora – both offer bungalows with private plunge pool on deck and direct access to the lagoon below with stunning views of Bora Bora’s iconic Mount Otemanu.

Have breakfast in style  

Arrange for your breakfast to be delivered to your overwater bungalow by outrigger canoe. Breakfast in bed will never be the same again.

Picnic on the sands  

Picnic on a deserted motu (islet) with Tahitian speciality poisson cru (raw fish marinated in lime juice and coconut milk) washed down with a chilled Tahitian beer or a glass or two of something sparkling.

Have a massage  

The spas at the Four Seasons and St Regis offer some of the best spa experiences in the Islands of Tahiti, whilst the South Pacific’s first thalassotherapy centre can be found at Intercontinental Thalasso's Deep Ocean Spa where the signature treatment uses mineral-rich deep sea water drawn from depths of over 900m.

Travel Guide

Bora Bora honeymoon travel essentials

Where is Bora Bora?  

Located in the heart of the South Pacific Ocean, mid-way between Australia and South America, Bora Bora is just one of 118 islands that make up The Islands of Tahiti, or French Polynesia as it's traditionally known. The leading lady of the glorious Society Islands, Bora Bora is home to a majestic green peak surrounded by a turquoise lagoon and dreamy overwater bungalows.

How long is the flight to Bora Bora?  

Flights from London to Bora Bora via Los Angeles take around 26 hours. Flights also operate from Tokyo and Auckland to Papeete on Tahiti’s mainland. There are regular connections from Papeete to Bora Bora, just a 45-minute flight away.

What currency is used in Bora Bora?  

The French Pacific Franc (XPF) is the local currency. Make use of the ATM machine when you arrive at Papeete airport, or exchange US dollars, as it’s a good idea to have some local currency. ATMs can also be found on the larger islands – often inside banks, so check opening times. Hotel bills can be settled using a credit card.

Do you need a visa for Bora Bora?  

British citizens require a full 10-year passport with at least six months validity remaining following your departure from The Islands of Tahiti. If you or any member of your party is not a British citizen, or does not hold a British passport, please check the passport and visa requirements with the Embassy. No visa is required for British passport holders staying less than 90 days. No vaccinations are required.

What is there to see and do on honeymoon in Bora Bora?  

The star of the show in Bora Bora has to be the incredible lagoon. Honeymoon highlights in Bora Bora include catamaran trips, private island picnics, snorkelling safaris, swimming with stingrays, helicopter flights, sunset cruises with Champagne and a romantic couple's massage! On dry land, hiking the green peaks on the mainland rewards intrepid honeymooners with fantastic views of the lagoon and the ocean. Most resorts are located on outer islets, or motus, with swaying palms and perfect beaches facing the emerald island in the centre of the lagoon.

How much does a Bora Bora honeymoon cost?  

Bora Bora is a remote and exclusive honeymoon destination, and worth every penny to experience the wonders of this tropical paradise. A honeymoon to Bora Bora is exceptional and promises the picture-perfect setting of your honeymoon dreams. Expect to spend in the region of £4,500 per person for a 10-night island-hopping holiday, including international flights from the UK and inter-island flights between the islands, with higher price tags attached to the more luxurious resorts and overwater bungalows. For ideas and inspiration, here is a selection of island-hopping itineraries to whet your honeymoon appetite.

Which are the best honeymoon resorts in Bora Bora?  

At Turquoise, we know that no two honeymoons are the same and that every couple has their own hopes, dreams and desires for their perfect honeymoon. Our team of Tahiti experts have visited each and every Bora Bora resort to get a true understanding of these paradise hideaways. We know the best rooms with the best views, we know the most delicious cocktails and the tastiest dish on the menu, and we personally know the GM and the concierge team.

Each resort in Bora Bora is different and offers something unique. Conrad Bora Bora Nui has a contemporary style and incredible sunset views across the ocean; Four Seasons features baths with mountain views and impeccable service; St Regis has a country club feel and personal butlers on hand to cater to your every whim; InterContinental Thalasso has an amazing spa with views to match and accommodation is entirely over the water; Bora Bora Pearl twins Polynesian design with modern luxuries; and InterContinental Le Moana sits on the main island of Bora Bora, next to beautiful Matira Beach, and is in a great location to explore the island and local restaurants.

Are there all-inclusive honeymoon resorts in Bora Bora?  

Unlike other parts of the world, most resorts in French Polynesia don’t offer all-inclusive packages. Instead, you’ll often find that breakfast is included, and lunch and dinner can be pre-paid before your arrival, or paid for locally. We highly recommend including a half-board meal plan (breakfast and dinner) when you book your honeymoon with Turquoise, as meal prices are generally high across all islands in French Polynesia, so this takes the sting out of your check-out bill, and puts the pleasure back into ordering as you won't be worrying about the price of each dish. You'll often save money by paying for meals before you arrive too.

One resort that stands out on the all-inclusive front is The Brando which includes all meals, all drinks, a daily spa treatment and a daily excursion. This is the ‘godfather’ of private islands and a fantastic grand finale to your Bora Bora honeymoon.
