Conjuring up postcard-perfect images of South Pacific indulgence and breathtaking scenic surrounds, Bora Bora is a little haven of exclusive luxury in French Polynesia. The volcanic origins of the island can be seen in the two dormant peaks, Mount Pahia and Mount Otemanu, which are ringed by coconut palms, lush valleys, impossibly white sand and crystal-clear aquamarine lagoons.
A favourite destination of honeymooning couples, it’s no wonder people fall in love with Bora Bora. It’s an idyllic location and a playground for adults where you can do as little or as much as you please. The siren’s call beckons travellers to explore the Pacific Ocean as your backyard whether that is by boat, diving, snorkelling or simply luxuriating in the warm waters. The interior contains hiking challenges, hidden historic and sacred sites and indulgent treatments, if you are up for it.
A fusion of French and Polynesian cultures influences the cuisine, traditions and handicrafts on the island. Bora Bora is famous for Tahitian black pearls, which are only found in the remote reefs of French Polynesia. Chose your own unique pearlescent orbs to be crafted into bespoke jewellery or simply admire their iridescent hues. It’s just one of the many facets about Bora Bora that will seduce you.
