As one of the most exquisitely beautiful places in the world, Bora Bora seems almost made for honeymoons. It’s easy to understand why so many couples choose this once-in-a-lifetime destination to celebrate this major milestone in their life together. Here’s how to get started planning your honeymoon in paradise.
How to Plan
Start early – Honeymooners can often take advantage of the discounts offered by special honeymoon packages that include flights, activities, and accommodation. The sooner you start researching packages and costs, the more likely you’ll be ready to act when great deals come along.
Share in the planning – Your trip will be more meaningful if you and your future spouse plan together. This seems intuitive, but in reality, one person often ends up managing most of the planning alone. The trip is more likely to be truly memorable if you both take an active role in choosing your activities and experiences.
Travel your way – Recommendations from travel websites and friends can certainly be helpful when planning your trip, but remember that Bora Bora’s “must-do” experiences are not one-size-fits-all. For example, don’t feel pressured to schedule activities everyday if all you want to do is relax together. Plan a honeymoon that matches your unique interests and trip goals.
Where to Stay
For a no-frills paradise – The basic Polynesian bungalows at Village Temanuata are perfect for couples honeymooning on a budget. This family-owned resort is located on popular Matira Beach, within walking distance of plenty of shopping and dining options. The simple fan-cooled bungalows come equipped with a patio and private bathroom with hot water shower.
