When talking about the ultimate romantic honeymoon destinations, there are so many amazing ones that it’s truly difficult for the newlyweds to land on one. However, there is a certain undeniable allure in the destinations in French Polynesia that even the pickiest of the lovebirds won’t be immune to. After we’re done describing all the amazing honeymoon-y things that are available to you in these destinations, you will be completely hooked, so let’s do this romantic trip just right.
The Earth’s masterpiece
There’s no denying it, some places are simply more sublime than others. Bora Bora – one of the most coveted honeymoon destinations isn’t so coveted without a good reason. It truly is a heaven on earth, something you can’t even believe is on this planet. You can simply feel the calling of the talcum-like beaches, the almost impossibly clear water, and incredible coral reefs. So what to do here in order to have the ultimate romantic experience? Well, first of all, make sure you book the most romantic accommodation available.
There are tons of absolutely lovely ones, but newlyweds want their privacy, which is what makes The Four Seasons the best possible choice, especially if you go for your own private bungalow. You get your own terrace, where you can have romantic breakfasts and watch the sunset, and even take a dip in your very own private pool. Aside from sipping cocktails and almost never leaving the bedroom, there are tons of memorable things you can do such as kite surfing, romantic strolls, and of course, sipping cocktails on the beach while enjoying one of the most majestic sunsets. What more could two lovebirds want?

The largest island
Tahiti is the largest island in French Polynesia, and also the home of French Polynesia’s capital, Papeete. This means that it has a great deal to offer, and you’re about to be dazzled with our honeymooning suggestions. Now, the first thing to do is to look into the best and most convenient Tahiti flights, so your journey can begin on ‘the right foot’. Once you have landed in your dream honeymoon destination, the island is virtually your oyster. At most resorts, you’ll be greeted with their signature welcome ‘package’ – a glass of pineapple juice, a fragrant tiare or flower garland, and a cool towel. Since Tahiti is the most ‘French’ of all the islands, you’ll definitely feel the Parisian romantic vibe. Everyone around you speaks French, and there is a plethora of fine wines you can enjoy any time of the day – after all, you’re on your honeymoon.
The Tahiti Pearl Beach Resort is your ultimate choice of accommodation, and not only because it offers a spectacular honeymoon experience. Incredible and modern ocean view rooms will make you want to never leave the room. However, if you’re an adventurous couple, you will certainly want to engage in such activities as surfing which is Tahiti’s signature sport. Now, since you’ll be in the capital, you can mingle with the locals, pick up some of that romantic French, and definitely enjoy the incredible cuisine that will make you feel like you’re in Paris.

The ultimate privacy
Finally, if what you crave is the ultimate private and secluded honeymoon experience, Tikehau is definitely your cup of tea. From the airport, you’ll be whisked away to your resort via a boat ride, which is incredibly cute. You can choose between the traditional Pearl Beach Resort or go for something more ‘rustic’ and ‘island-y’ as the Ninamu Resort Tikehau, which truly offers a one-of-a-kind experience. The hand-crafted bungalows are snug, romantically lit, and just, oh, perfect for two people who just tied the knot. It’s not a luxurious resort, but its charm compensates for the lack of luxury. You’ll fall in love with your little love nook as soon as you step foot inside it. As for what to do during your honeymoon, aside from taking full advantage of your secluded and ultra-romantic bungalow, sublime pale-pink beaches await, and so does the ocean, so veg out and simply enjoy each other’s company.
If you do want to do something unique, there is always the excursion to Motu Puarua – an island inhabited only by thousands of different species of birds. However, since this is a small and secluded island with a very small population, if you’re not keen on bird watching, just snuggle up, swim, sunbathe, and enjoy what visitors claim to be the best cuisine in all of French Polynesia, at your very own Ninamu resort. Ninamu also offers such activities as paddle boarding, kayaking, kite surfing, windsurfing, sailing, snorkeling, so if the two of you have an adventurous side and want to do more than just typical honeymoon stuff, your little resort has got you covered.
