Tahiti Honeymoon Planning

Planning a honeymoon is often equal parts exciting and stressful! From figuring out a budget to choosing where to go, there are so many decisions to make and a Tahiti honeymoon is no different. We are here to help every step of the way, so we’ve compiled some tips and resources we think will be helpful to you.


  1. Figure Out Your Budget. The first thing you must do no matter where the destination is figure out your budget. This should ideally be done about a year in advance to allow time for saving money and potentially take advantage of any early booking special offers.

  2. Decide on your destination. This can be a tricky one, but we can make it easy for you – come to Tahiti! J Truly, there is something for everyone here and if you visit more than one island, you’ve got multiple destinations in one. A Bora Bora honeymoon with a few days in Moorea first is popular, or you can venture out to one of the less popular islands like Tikehau or Maupiti along with a Bora Bora overwater bungalow stay. No matter which Tahiti island you decide, you won’t be disappointed!

  3. Do Your Research. Once you’ve settled on your honeymoon locale, do your research and do yourself a favor - choose a reputable travel agent who specializes in your destination. Because you’re not just planning a honeymoon, you’re planning a wedding as well! Your to-do list is likely a mile long and a travel agent can save you time and money.

  4. What Documents Do You Need? Find out what documentation you need – passport? Visa? If so, get these things squared away early so you don’t have any problems.

  5. Choose your dates. The sooner you know this information, the sooner you can find out pricing and what you can afford at your chosen honeymoon destination. If you decide on a Tahiti honeymoon, price is critical because it will allow you to figure out if you can afford an overwater bungalow for all, or part of your trip, and which island you can afford it on.  If you would like more information on the overwater bungalow experience, we recommend you read Laurel’s Overwater Bungalow Guide.

  6. Book your trip! Once you have your flights and hotels booked, you can breathe a little easier and focus on the more fun aspects of your honeymoon. Activities, excursions, romantic dining experiences, whatever you and your new spouse will enjoy. This is your time to indulge in each other and celebrate your future together!

"Our dinner at Villa Mahana was our favorite, but I think this is obvious. We are sure you had something to do with us being able to eat at the private table on top of the restaurant and we want to thank you for that. The experience here was incredible...

We cannot thank you enough for organizing a trip of a lifetime...

Thank you for EVERYTHING. You went above and beyond all our expectations."

"I looked at other agencies like Costco Travel and AAA, but all the representatives I spoke with had never even been to Tahiti and couldn't answer many of my questions. A friend of mine recommended True Tahiti Vacation to me-so I started working with Laurel from True Tahiti Vacation. She answered all my questions, recommended restaurants, activities, etc. ..."

Laurel's Personal Guide to Overwater Bungalows in Tahiti, Bora Bora, Moorea & Beyond

Overwater Bungalows were born in Tahiti, so it’s only natural that Tahiti and Overwater Bungalows have become synonymous. Tahiti is one of the few places in the world that has Overwater Bungalows and for many, staying in one is a MUST DO! Indeed, staying in an Overwater Bungalow, especially on a Bora Bora honeymoon, is truly a wonderful experience. You can enter the water from your terrace and swim in turquoise lagoons. You’ll enjoy amazing views and fall asleep to the sounds of waves gently lapping beneath your bungalow.
