ROMANTIC ESCAPADE - PEARL

ROMANTIC ESCAPADE - PEARL

Known as the most romantic island in the world, Bora Bora is surrounded by an inspiring lagoon, resembling an artist's palette of blues and greens, sparking a love at first sight with all its visitors. Romantics from around the world have laid claim to this island where the castle-like Mount Otemanu pierces the sky. Lush tropical slopes and valleys blossom with hibiscus, while palm-covered motu circle the illuminated lagoon like a delicate necklace. Perfect white-sand beaches give way to emerald waters where colored fish animate the coral gardens as they greet the giant manta rays. This could be easily be described as the center of the romantic universe, where luxury resorts and spas dot the island with overwater bungalows, thatched roof villas, and fabled ambience.

Disembark the ship and tender ashore in Bora Bora. You will be met by your guide and transferred to your resort. After check-in, you are free to enjoy the afternoon at your leisure. From sunrise to sunset, each resort has designed their own blend of unique romantic experiences for their guests to choose from.

Enjoy a unique opportunity to stay at one of the most precious resorts in Bora Bora. Relax and indulge yourself on the idyllic beach and take a breathtaking look at the amazing crystal waters surrounding you. Your overnight stay will include a romantic dinner and a canoe breakfast served in your bungalow the following morning and one of the most luxurious accommodations available: an overwater bungalow. You can simply relax or fill your time with some of the many activities the hotel offers, from Kayaks and canoes to snorkeling or indulging yourself in the hotel spa.

Overland Program Step by Step:

Please note: The order of sites visited may vary to avoid congestion. The timings indicated are only approximate, and are given here for general reference purposes and are subject to change.

DAY ONE

You will be met on the tender dock in VAITAPE for your transfer to the resort. Timing TBA

DAY TWO

In the morning, a canoe breakfast will be served to your overwater bungalow. Enjoy your morning at leisure. Transfer to the ship in Bora Bora will be done by the end of the morning.

Expected Weather:

Known as the most romantic island in the world, Bora Bora is surrounded by an inspiring lagoon, resembling an artist’s palette of blues and greens. For most visitors to Bora Bora, it’s love at first sight.

Lush, tropical mountain slopes and valleys blossom with hibiscus, and palm-covered islets circle the illuminated lagoon like a delicate necklace. Perfect white-sand beaches give way to emerald waters, where colorful fish animate the coral gardens. The ambiance couldn’t be more romantic, especially within luxury resorts such as the Bora Bora Pearl.

Overland Program Step by Step:

Please note: The order of sites visited may vary to avoid congestion. Any times indicated are only approximate, and are given here for general reference purposes and are subject to change. The Destination Services Team on board will advise you on the ship of your departure and return times.

DAY ONE

After disembarking the ship, you will tender ashore and transfer to the Bora Bora Pearl Resort. The resort is located on the “motu” (meaning islet) Te Vairoa, a setting that exudes romance. Following check in, the remainder of the day is yours to enjoy as you please.

Relax on the terrace of your overwater bungalow, admiring the views of the surrounding lagoon and mountain peaks. Indulge in the services at the spa. Stroll the idyllic beach, pausing every so often in the shade of a swaying palm. Take an invigorating dip in the freshwater swimming pool. Or if you are feeling ambitious, enjoy water sports such as an outrigger canoe ride or snorkeling in the sea’s crystal-clear waters. This is your time in paradise with no schedule to follow other than your own.

In the evening, as the resort becomes illuminated with soft lighting, the atmosphere becomes even more romantic and memorable. The ambiance is ideal for your romantic dinner, a special affair that’s pure Polynesian. Afterwards, feel free to stroll about the resort before retiring in your thatched-roof bungalow that’s perched over the water.

DAY TWO

In the morning, a traditional Polynesian outrigger canoe will glide up to your private terrace, and you’ll be served a sumptuous breakfast. What an unforgettable way to start another day in paradise. After spending the remainder of the morning at leisure, you will transfer to the ship in Bora Bora.
