Tahiti With the mythical peaks of Bora Bora as the backdrop, the show quickly moves into full swing. From yellow to orange, pink, red, blue, purple - and various outrageous hues in between – the multi-coloured palette moves through the sky and glassy ocean.

Most couples dream of spending their honeymoon or anniversary in a dreamy bungalow, overlooking waters of such aquamarine clarity that sea life can be spotted from the hammock on your porch.

Though many of these spots are a bit of a splurge, they're absolutely perfect for couples planning a celebratory holiday, and staying in one of these luxury villas will be an unforgettable experience.
