Its private islands and the famous twin peaks of Mt. Otemanu make Bora Bora one of the most wondrous places on earth.


A Bora Bora honeymoon is the ultimate vacation goal of newly married couples around the world. There are few places that can rival the secluded intimacy and romantic ambiance of Bora Bora. The island’s beautiful resorts with their amazing overwater bungalows surrounded by sparkling blue lagoons offer a unique, private experience for honeymooners. The perfect backdrop for your new life together, a Bora Bora honeymoon has it all.

As the leading lady of French Polynesia, the breathtaking island of Bora Bora has lured A-listers and jet-setters from around the world for decades. Americans have been visiting Bora Bora as far back as the early 1950s, before there was nary an overwater bungalow in sight. It has long been a favorite destination for couples seeking privacy, from celebrities to ordinary folk alike. If you're in search of relaxed elegance, sparkling blue lagoons and the best overwater bungalows in the world, honeymoon Bora Bora is incomparable.

Where to stay on your Bora Bora honeymoon is the key question when it comes to planning. When it comes to 5-star resorts, Bora Bora has some excellent choices. St. Regis Bora Bora and Four Seasons Bora Bora Resort lead the way in luxury honeymoons, with pricing for a week-long honeymoon package in the $12,000-$15,000 range. Another option popular with honeymooners and couples is InterContinental Thalasso Resort & Spa with is renown Deep Ocean Spa, famous for its thalassotherapy treatments. Rounding out the top Bora Bora resorts is Hilton’s Conrad Bora Bora Nui Resort loved by honeymooners for its privacy and made popular by celebrities such as Kim Kardashian.

In addition to 5-star properties, there are several mid-range and more affordable Bora Bora honeymoon resorts that offer wonderful accommodations for couples. Our recommendations include Le Bora Bora by Pearl Resorts, InterContinental Le Moana Bora Bora Resort, Maitai Polynesia Bora Bora and Hotel Royal Bora Bora

To make their trip even more memorable, a Bora Bora honeymoon is often combined with another island like Moorea or Taha’a. For example, 4 nights in Bora Bora and 3 nights in Moorea. Or 5 nights in Bora Bora and 2 nights in Taha’a. For the more adventurous honeymoon couples, or those who prefer more authentic travel experiences, Tikehau is a great option or for those who love scuba diving, Rangiroa is a must.

Most couples choose a 7-night or 8-night stay for their Bora Bora honeymoon and depending on airline flight arrival times and inter-island departures, you may have to budget your time to include a 1-night stay in Tahiti. If you are able to extend your trip, honeymoon packages of 10-nights often offer great value with special Bora Bora resort promotions. Deals like Stay 5/Pay 4 or free meals can often be found at even the luxury resorts, especially in low season months.

Why Bora Bora?

Aside from its natural beauty, why Bora Bora? Why not a Maldives honeymoon? Simply put, Bora Bora is more relaxed, easier to get to and can either be as casual or as formal as you like, even in the most luxuriously expensive resorts. 

The very first "Overwater Bungalow" in the world was built in the Islands of Tahiti, on nearby Raiatea. In 1970, the Hotel Bora Bora added them to their famed resort and the rest is history. The original, the best and the most beautiful, Bora Bora is where honeymooners find activities they love, privacy they crave and the pampering they can indulge in.
