Bora Bora is continuously hailed as one of the most romantic destinations in the world. Where better to honeymoon, exchange vows or embark on a luxurious couples getaway than a tiny, isolated and intimate island in French Polynesia where you can sleep in luxurious accommodations suspended over the crystal-clear ocean?

Yes, the turquoise-colored ocean provides amazing visibility to sea life below. The soft, white-sand beaches are also nothing short of spectacular. Year-round sunshine means ditch the winter clothes, and prepare to spend the vacation in casual beachwear without a care in the world.
The resorts are practiced in making romantic getaways a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Even if just for one night, splurge on a private overwater bungalow. Some even have clear viewing panels in the floor or coffee tables to reveal the ocean below. Enjoy a candlelit dinner for two with the soothing sounds of the ocean providing the perfect ambiance.

While seated at a table on the overwater bungalow's private deck, watch as your breakfast is paddled to you in a flower-laden Polynesian Outrigger canoe--one of the islands most notable romantic experiences.
Spa treatments using local ingredients and flowers calm nerves in an exotic environment. Try a floral bath for two, a hot stone massage, or even a sunset milk bath while overlooking a lagoon.
Concierge and butlers can organize just about anything, from secluded beach dinners to even a spur of the moment re-kindling of vows. A bath overflowing with flower petals may be just what you're looking for. Just ask.
Active couples may enjoy kayaking, a sunset catamaran cruise, parasailing and other water-centric activities. However, away from the shore is the opportunity to take a quiet hike or Jeep adventure through lush greenery.
In Bora Bora, it's all about you.
