Bora Bora Honeymoons: Beach Resorts and Overwater Bungalow Vacation

Explore the gorgeous Islands of Tahiti for an unforgettable honeymoon! Stay on the beautiful islands of Moorea and Bora Bora, complete with an overwater bungalow experience.

A couple from Denver came to us looking for a romantic 10th anniversary vacation. They wanted to “drop out” of the real world and relax on a beautiful beach, and they also dreamed of staying in an overwater bungalow. We designed this Bora Bora Honeymoons: Beach Resorts and Overwater Bungalow Vacation to give them a taste of a few French Polynesian islands, finishing off their trip with a few nights in a luxurious overwater bungalow in Bora Bora.

They started their Bora Bora Honeymoons: Beach Resorts and Overwater Bungalow Vacation on the island of Tahiti. After their long international flight, they had a night to simply relax, unwind, and recover from the journey with a rejuvenating massage. The next day, they hopped over to the island of Moorea, one of the most fashionable islands in French Polynesia.

They spent 3 nights at Manava Beach Resort & Spa Moorea, a beautiful resort featuring breathtaking ocean and mountain views. They stayed in a beach bungalow, just steps from the white sand beach and the warm, turquoise waters of the lagoon—the perfect spot for snorkeling with colorful fish, rays, small reef sharks, and more! During their time on Moorea, they enjoyed some scenic hikes and opted for a special excursion to feed the sharks.

Next for their Bora Bora Honeymoons: Beach Resorts and Overwater Bungalow Vacation, they flew to the island of Bora Bora for the highlight of their trip: staying in an overwater bungalow with views to Mount Otemanu! They had a relaxing 3 nights sunning themselves on the deck with gorgeous views of the cerulean waters and famous Mt. Otemanu. They also decided to celebrate their anniversary with a romantic horseback riding excursion on the beach.

When it was time to say goodbye to Bora Bora, they didn’t want to leave! They returned home feeling refreshed, with some amazing pictures to share with friends and family.
