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 Resort & Thalasso Spa.

After disembarking the ship, you will tender ashore in Vaitape and transfer to the Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa. This luxurious InterContinental Resort is located on Piti Aau, a coral “motu” (meaning islet) on the barrier reef, 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 sea and mountain peaks. Indulge in the services at the spa, part of which features a glass floor so you can watch the marine life during your session. 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 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.
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.
The climate on the Island of Bora Bora and the rest of the Society Islands is considered tropical and can be divided into two basic seasons: the wet season and the dry season.
The wet season (November through April) is the Polynesian Summer and accounts for approximately three-quarters of the annual rainfall of French Polynesia. The humidity during this time can be quite heavy and muggy and cloud cover is common. Storms are frequent, brief and unpredictable. Temperatures generally range from 27 - 30 degrees C (80-86 degrees Fahrenheit), with the hottest months being February and March.
By contrast, the dry season (May through October) is the Polynesian winter. Temperatures generally range from 24-28 degrees C (75-82 degrees Fahrenheit) and rain is rare.
Temperature fluctuations from day to night are minimal.
