Detailed Itinerary 

Day 1: Bora Bora – A Getaway Begins

Romance fills the air as the plane moves closer to the shores of Bora Bora. You can see the soaring peaks of Mounts Pahia and Otemanu; their sleek basalt cliffs shimmer in the sunlight above the emerald rainforest canopy. Frangipani and orchids blossom in the tropical warmth, adding to the exotic, seductive ambiance of the island. The famous lagoon glistens with indigo and turquoise hues against the backdrop of the deeper cobalt waters of the South Pacific Sea. Your flight lands at Bora Bora Airport.

Your private transfer greets you upon your arrival and escorts you by boat across the treasured lagoon to reach your luxurious resort. The opulent beauty of the island is tangible and unforgettable. The sea breeze brushes against your skin and rustles the dangling fronds of the coconut palms. White sand beaches glint like ivory against the gentle lagoon. Settle into the secluded comforts of your overwater bungalow that offers views of the marvelous mountains of Bora Bora and the lavish surrounding waters. You take a moment to listen to the way the water laps against the wooden posts, accentuating the swishing thistles of the thatched roof in the breeze.

The remainder of the day is at your leisure to embrace the majesty and romance of Bora Bora. Lounge on the warm, white sands of the beach and soak up the tropical sunlight or step into the refreshing waters of the lagoon. For an introduction to the island, you venture to Vaitape, the largest town on Bora Bora. The scent of donuts dressed in powdered sugar emanates from a small restaurant. The aisles of the central market brim with colorful produce picked from the trees, from avocado to mango, dragon fruit to passion fruit. Stores around the city display vibrant white and black pearls that glisten in the day’s natural light. You settle into the movement of Vaitape and the relaxing atmosphere of Bora Bora, discovering the laid-back pace of island life.   

What’s Included: airport transfer, accommodation

Day 2: Bora Bora – Passion in Adventure

The luscious aroma of coconut returns to the air in the morning. Indulge in a private breakfast in your overwater bungalow, blending the charms of seclusion with the splendors of the island view from your deck. The scent of mangos and pineapples accompany the decadent fragrance of fresh-brewed coffee, made from local beans harvested on the island. After the meal, you meet your guide to set out on your first couple’s adventure in Bora Bora, eager for a deeper exploration of the tropical marvels. Step on board the traditional outrigger canoe for a private cruise on the lagoon and over the South Pacific Sea.

The breeze brushes rushes through your hair and carries the sea spray misting over the hull of the boat. You weight anchor at a special snorkeling spot known for the manta rays and blacktip reef sharks. You slide into the water and let the comfortable temperature embrace you. The salt gives you buoyancy beside the boat. You glide over the surface of the water and peer into the crystal clear waters of the lagoon to find schools of giant manta rays swimming below. The rays can have a wingspan of 23 feet wide as it glides with the current.

Blacktip reef sharks can reach lengths of more than five feet long, casting a dramatic shadow over the seafloor. The sharks pay no attention to you as they swim above the low-lying manta rays. Your heart pounds against your chest with the excitement of viewing sharks and rays in their natural habitat. You continue to the shores of a nearby islet known as a motu. The white sand is soft and powdery beneath your feet. Salt crystals from the water crystallize on your shoulders. You take a seat beneath the shading trees and enjoy the view of the lapping water. The scent of fresh mahi-mahi cooked over an open flame overtakes the aromas of coconut and the semi-sweet water.

What’s Included: breakfast, lunch, dinner, tour, accommodation

Day 3: Bora Bora – A Couple’s Journey

Wake to the soothing sounds of the water lapping against the posts of your overwater bungalow. You can hear the subtle twitter of a blue petrel in search of breakfast. The seabird can dive up to 20 feet into the sea in search of fish, squid, and krill. The returning sunlight highlights the gray plumage across the bird’s back and white feathers along its belly. The calls of the petrel fade beneath the growing hum of a ukulele. A traditional outrigger canoe glides closer to your bungalow and carries a delightful morning breakfast.

The hotel staff offers you colorful, fragrant leis. Take a romantic ride on the canoe as the staff sets up an elegant breakfast on your private deck. The smooth and scenic ride sets a romantic ambiance to the morning, accentuated by the songs of the ukulele and the scent of the flowers on your lei. Breakfast glows with lush tropical fruit, from pineapple to guava. You delight on a refreshing cup of coffee before venturing out into the day’s excursion, beginning with a parasailing tour on the lagoon.

Your guide greets you on the hotel dock and whisks you away onto the lagoon. Your guide secures you to the parasail and releases you into the wind created by the movement of the speedboat. The wind catches the bright colors of the parasail and gently guides you into the air for a couple’s panorama. Share in the indigo and turquoise colors of the lagoon. The stunning peak of Mount Otemanu remains a powerful image above the encircling white sand beaches.

You fly more than 20 feet above the water, listening to the sounds of the wind rustling against the fabric of your parasail. At dinner, the sounds of drums overtake the serene lapping of the water against the shoreline. Dancers take their positions at the center of the dining room for a traditional show. The men wear long grass skirts and thick necklaces. The musicians groove to the music in red robes and colorful floral crowns. The dancers’ hands and movement in the hips tell the fables and legends of the islands over time.

Day 4: Bora Bora – Tangible Island Splendors

The morning light washes over the lagoon, returning the indigo and turquoise hues to the water and the ivory sheen to the sand. You wake up slowly, basking in the aromas of coconut and lychee. Board a boat on the resort’s private dock to visit a celebrated pearl farm that takes you through the step-by-step process of cultivating the precious stone. Your guide welcomes you at the door and introduces you first to the shoreline. A small boat takes you along the lagoon where you jump into the water.

You snorkel around the buoys and ropes where oysters dangle like wind chimes. The crystal clear turquoise waters have visibility up to 15 feet ahead with sunlight able to pierce the surface up to 200 feet deep. Your guide grabs two strings from the main line and returns to the boat. The oyster shells shimmer in the sunlight on the string. Your guide cracks open one of the oysters to show how the sand has cultured into a shimmering pearl.

The thrill of finding a pearl inside the oyster makes your heart pound with excitement. Inside the workshop, you learn that three out of every 100 pearls are born in ideal conditions; the remainder is shaped and crafted inside the studio. Lines of perfect luminescent pearls fill the display cases. You can watch as artisans polish the pearls ready for display, taking their time to study the quality of each pearl in pursuit of perfection. You continue to a lagoon sanctuary to meet with a marine biologist eager to offer insight into the treasures of Bora Bora’s marine ecosystem.

The private lagoon has natural protection from the open water around the edges of your resort. Coral grows in a fringing reef to create the unique system off which marine life feeds. Octopi hide in the small caverns within the coral. The spotted surface of eagle rays flickers in the sunlight. You notice the pastel colors of a parrotfish passing beneath you, leading your eyes to sea urchins, rustling anemones, and the neon glow of firefish.

Day 5: Bora Bora – A Couple’s Endless Idyllic Escape

The beauty of paradise returns with the sunlight. The rainforest glistens with emerald. You easily imagine the rainbow of colors glowing in the coral gardens, including the vibrant unicorn fish and peacock damselfish you found the previous day in the private lagoon. At breakfast, you take your time to enjoy the sweet passion fruit and creamy body of a fresh cappuccino. The island life has given you pleasure in paradise, allowing you to indulge in the relaxed ambiance. Before departing the island, you partake in one final couple’s experience to share in the marvels of Bora Bora.

You have a private transfer to the airport and board a helicopter to soar around the mountain peaks of Otemanu and Pahia for a 360-degree panorama. Your heart beats with excitement as the helicopter lifts off. The thump of the propellers permeates your headphones. You can feel the weightlessness of the helicopter as you maneuver over the jungle canopy. The basalt peak of Mount Otemanu reaches a height of nearly 2,400 feet above sea level. Bursts of purple and white emanate from bouquets and frangipani blossoming in the valley of the rainforest.

The indigo waters of the lagoon lead to the cobalt of the deeper South Pacific Sea. The helicopter sets down on the landing pad and the propellers slowly wind down. You spend some time in the lively, welcoming streets of Vaitape, finding the sensual aroma of banana pancakes with hints of vanilla. Sailboats glide over the waters. Restaurants in town serve fresh prawns and squeeze lemon over decadent oysters. You return to the airport when you are ready to board your flight home.
