Celebrate your nuptials in style with a luxury holiday in Bora Bora. Whether you’re looking to completely relax or for something a bit more adventurous, this island has it all. Sleep the day away in luxury hotels perched over the sapphire seas or get up close and personal with tropical fish on a snorkelling excursion. Welcome to paradise.
Known across the world for its stunning beauty, Bora Bora is by far the most popular island within the South Pacific. Its vibrant sapphire, indigo, and turquoise seas, sand-fringed islets, and flourishing rainforests make it hard not to fall in love with Bora Bora. Wake up to the sound of waves gently crashing on the shore from the comfort of your overwater bungalow.
Bora Bora is famous for its luxury resorts with stilted cabins that seem to float above the crystalline waters of the South Pacific, and experiencing a stay here is unlike anything else. Many of these bungalows feature glass floors so you can watch as brightly coloured tropical fish swim below your feet. Spend your days sunbathing on your own private deck, jumping into the warm sea from your step-ladder, or enjoying the rejuvenating spa treatments offered by Bora Bora’s opulent resorts.
Once you've totally unwound, experience some of the adventurous activities available on the island. You can dive or snorkel on nearby coral reefs, try your hand at paddleboarding in the peaceful bay, or even feed small reef sharks and Manta rays in the lagoon. There are plenty of land-based activities too, like exploring Mount Pahia and Mount Otemanu on a guided hike, or shopping in boutique stores in the main village of Vaitape.
As a tropical island near the equator, Bora Bora is a fantastic luxury holiday destination year round. Temperatures remain around 28 degrees Celsius throughout the year, with the warmest months (March and April) reaching 30 degrees Celsius and the coldest months (July and August) dipping to 27 degrees Celsius.
The slightly colder months are often a pleasant time to visit, as trade winds help to keep heat and humidity low. However, the differences in temperature are minimal, and the surrounding sea offers plenty of opportunity to cool off when needed.
Bora Bora's local cuisine is Polynesian, and the islanders are famous for their food. Bursting with flavour, Polynesian cuisine uses locally sourced ingredients including fresh seafood, and includes dishes like saumon des diex, also known as “fish of the gods” and poisson cru, tuna marinated in lime and coconut.
From open-air restaurants near the lagoon, or seats with views of Mount Otemanu, Bora Bora has many fine dining experiences. After your meal, stay for the traditional Polynesian entertainment which often includes live music, traditional dress, and lots of dancing.
