There are many ways for newlyweds to unwind after the big day, but a Bora Bora honeymoon is one of the most luxurious and breathtaking choices. To keep that honeymoon stage as romantic as possible, we created this helpful The Islands of Tahiti guide to ease in planning and to outline all the exciting and relaxing resort experiences and amenities available to honeymooners who decide to celebrate their nuptials on the Bora Bora island.  

Honeymoon packages on Tahiti and Bora Bora range from all-inclusive to pick and choose, ensuring that all guests can create the ultimate honeymoon experience no matter what honeymoon destination you choose. Whether you decide on an overwater bungalow in Bora Bora or a private villa, your vacation will start your new marriage off in the best possible way.

Honeymoon in Bora Bora in The Islands of Tahiti

When you decide to honeymoon in Bora Bora, you’ll find an eclectic mix of relaxation and adventure, all accented with unbridled romance and breathtaking beauty. Throughout French Polynesia, you’ll find amenities that can’t be found anywhere else, and whether you choose Bora Bora or another island, you’ll find travel between the areas seamless. Also easy to access from Los Angeles. 

From the daily breakfast to the romantic dinners on the beach, days are filled to the brim with exactly what you’re looking for. Rent a jet ski to explore the surf or submerge into the ocean with your new spouse with some scuba diving or snorkeling. If you’d rather stick around the resort, book a plunge pool or luxurious spa treatment. Much like each of the islands, which has its own unique character and charm, the resorts in Bora Bora also have their own set of amenities and perks.

The Intercontinental Bora Bora Resort and Thalasso Spa is a luxurious resort located on Motu Piti Aau.

Known for its overwater villas, guests of Intercontinental enjoy Polynesian-styled rooms, sweeping views of both Mount Otemanu and the adjacent lagoon. All with personal access to the water and a private sundeck. 

The adjoining spa provides the ultimate relaxation with an assortment of services, including seawater treatment, couple massages that have been specifically crafted for honeymooners, hydromassage baths, and more.

Things To Do During Your Bora Bora Honeymoon

Tour the Crystal Clear Lagoons

There is no greater way to take in the majesty of the Tahitian Islands than on a Bora Bora lagoon tour. On a lagoon excursion, you glide along a mosaic of shifting blues to view the beautiful island and its towering peak, Mt Otemanu, which looks like something out of a dream, while soaking up some rays and adventure around the island. Bora Bora is finest seen from and in the lagoon. For a unique and memorable experience, take a tour in a transparent kayak to truly experience the lagoon in all of its beauty. Have your camera ready as you take in the sights of the land and the sea! You might even get lucky and see whales along the way!

Set Sail on a Scenic Sunset Cruise

A romantic sunset cruise is a perfect way to celebrate your honeymoon. Enjoy a breathtaking evening cruise as you are serenaded with live music and as the sun makes its last appearance over this gorgeous island. Cruises range from extremely private, including just you and your newlywed spouse, to small group cruises and catamarans that include drinks and snacks, all the way up to a luxe ride in an outrigger canoe that, after the sun sets, drops you off at the dock of the St. James, one of Bora Bora’s best restaurants, for a romantic dinner.

See Bora Bora from a Birds-Eye View

Looking for a little more adventure on your honeymoon? Try a helicopter tour or parasailing! Soar over the crystal clear blue water with your other half, soaking up all the island offers. Enjoy a helicopter ride over the crystal clear waters of Bora Bora, experience the best views of the islands, and fly over the turquoise waters and lush rainforest of Bora Bora. Or take in parasailing, an experience that any visitor to Bora Bora should enjoy. Whichever you choose, you’re guaranteed a view of the water below that will take your breath away as it reflects the islands and surrounding reefs in crystal clarity.
