Honeymoon Trip: Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora

The Bora Bora island is one of the most popular islands in The Islands of Tahiti. One of nine islands within the Society Islands, Bora Bora was formed over seven million years ago by a volcano. Like most of the islands of French Polynesia, Bora Bora is surrounded by a ring of coral reef, also known as an atoll.

By far one of the top resorts in Bora Bora, the five-star Four Seasons Resort knows how to spoil its guests. The service at this luxuriant retreat is outstanding; smiling staff members appear from virtually every corner to tend to any need or request. Feeling hot? They’ll be by in a sec with ice water, fresh fruit, and chilled towels.

And then there’s the ambience: tranquil aquamarine water travels through a picturesque lagoon, enticing visitors to enjoy a dip, snorkel, or float. Amenities include a fitness and business center; badminton, tennis, and volleyball courts; catamarans; and use of snorkeling equipment, kayaks, and stand up paddleboards.

Connected by wooden walkways, the overwater bungalows are what you’d expect from a Four Seasons resort: plush, serene, and immaculate. In this case, they also offer spectacular lagoon and tropical jungle views. There are multiple opportunities for guests to stop and ogle the phenomenal landscape.

No luxury resort would be complete without a spa, and the Four Seasons doesn’t disappoint. Te Mahana Spa boasts traditional treatments rooted in ancient practices, all of which are designed to relax and invigorate. The tranquil setting makes it impossible to feel stressed, even if you choose only to take a dip in the outdoor vitality pool or enjoy a yoga class without having a treatment. That said, we highly recommend having a massage – you can watch fish swim below the treatment room as you lie face-down.

.….it’s no wonder why Bora Bora is a dream destination for many brides and grooms.

The Story

Tahiti has a long and rich history. The islands were first settled by migrating Polynesians as early as 500BC. They were later discovered by European explorers during the 16th century and eventually colonized by France. Now officially known as French Polynesia, Tahiti is an autonomous overseas country of the French Republic. Once seen, Bora Bora is never forgotten. From the day you arrive until the moment you part ways, you will be in awe of how her soaring mountain peaks, turquoise lagoon and luxuriant overwater bungalows somehow look even more spectacular than the pictures.

Tahitian Culture

Tahitians inherited a rich and vibrant culture from their ancient ancestors. Polynesian artistry—which includes weaving, woodcarving, and tattooing—is grounded in the mythology of that heritage. Each sacred tradition tells a colorful story about life, love, and their enduring relationship with nature.

People

Tahitians are the proud guardians of their cultural heritage and therefore represent the beauty of timeless tradition. They love to celebrate their customs through artwork, song, and dance. These warm, welcoming Polynesians possess an innocent and carefree spirit. Their philosophy, aita pea pea, meaning, “not to worry,” is truly the Tahitian way of life.

Textiles

Before the arrival of European missionaries, Polynesian clothing was traditionally made from tapa cloth, which consisted of dried pandanus leaves, coconut fibers, and breadfruit bark. The local women at that time wore one single garment, called a pareo, wrapped around their waist. Today, this colorful article of clothing, like a sarong, is made from two yards of dyed fabric and can be worn by both men and women in a variety of ways.

The missionaries not only introduced fabric to the islands, but also taught the local women the art of patchwork. Today, these matriarchs, affectionately known as Tahitian “mamas,” sew colorful quilts known as tifaifai. Each tapestry is unique, made from handmade floral appliqué designs meant to reflect their inherent love of nature. Now a treasured wedding gift, it is wrapped around the couple during a traditional Polynesian wedding ceremony.

Dance

Tahitian dance is the most authentic reflection of Polynesian culture. This extraordinary display of passion and vitality was once linked to all aspects of island life, including prayer, celebration, welcoming and storytelling. The signature tamure, or fast hip shaking motion, has become an unmistakable trademark of this captivating art form, matched only by the resounding rhythms of the Tahitian drums.

Cuisine

Across the boulevard from Le Marché is the waterfront promenade, Vai’ete Square, where the famous food trucks known as Les Roulottes open nightly to serve a range of affordable meals. Snacks include Chinese food, French crepes, steak sandwiches, pommes frites, fresh fish, and pizza. The food and atmosphere are both excellent.

The signature dish in Tahiti is poisson cru, or raw fish. The flavor defines the essence of the destination—sweet, tender, refreshing, and exotic. It consists of raw tuna marinated in lime juice and mixed with a delicious blend of diced vegetables and coconut milk.

Local Currency: The Pacific Franc

In the French Polynesian Islands, including Bora Bora, they use the Pacific Franc which has the code XPF. If you go to a currency conversion website like XE you will be able to get an accurate rate for today. As a rough guide $1USD is about 90XPF. U.S. currency may be accepted as direct payment in hotels, restaurants and large shops, but will get a low rate of exchange. There are a few ATM machines available on the main islands of Tahiti, Moorea and Bora Bora, which you may use with your debit or major credit cards.  You’ll certainly want to have some cash on hand for small purchases and the occasional tip.  US Dollars are not widely accepted in the islands; therefore, local currency is best.
 

Weather:

High Season: May to October

The best time for blue skies and sunshine. The dry season in Bora Bora takes place over the winter months in the island, but note that this is the southern hemisphere winter (the opposite from the winter months in Europe, Asia and America). The dry months see low levels of rainfall, so you can be confident that you will have clear blue skies with plenty of sunshine for much of your stay. Temperatures during the winter are also a bit cooler than the summer months, with daytime highs around 28°C (83°F).

This ideal weather for basking in the sun makes the dry season the most popular time to visit Bora Bora. Keep in mind this also tends to mean higher prices on resorts and bigger crowds across the island. Finding seats on flights can also be a challenge at peak times.

 

Low Season: November to March

The best time to avoid the crowds and save on resorts. As Bora Bora’s dry season comes to an end, the days start to get cloudier and there’s an increased chance of rain. The temperatures creep up a little higher and the humidity kicks in. This change in the weather marks the low season for tourism in Bora Bora, but this can be advantageous to travelers who don’t mind a little rain on their vacation. Hurricanes (known here as cyclones) are rare but they can blow through at this time of year.

During the rainy season, many of the island’s top resorts drop their rates as demand falls. This makes a luxe stay at an overwater bungalow resort, much more affordable. Another advantage to low season in Bora Bora is the lack of crowds; most visitors crave those iconic blue skies, and visitor numbers thin out significantly when the weather is more unpredictable.
