Four Seasons Bora Bora

Sparkling turquoise waters, overwater bungalows, indulgent spas and more. Revered by Hollywood stars and honeymooners, the sandy shores and coral-laden island chains of French Polynesia deserve their reputation as one of the world’s most romantic holiday spots.

There are few settings on earth that can compete with Tahiti and her intoxicating mix of sophistication, dramatic scenery and incredible hotels. Resorts here are so pinch-me luxurious that a stay here will be burnt into the story of your romance forever.  

Made up of five island groups, Tahiti Nui is the gateway to islets and atolls like Bora Bora, Moorea and Tikehau. Whichever you choose, startling turquoise lagoons will be yours and, if you’ve decided to splurge, taking an overwater bungalow will make you the envy of Instagrammers everywhere.

Think brightly coloured fish swimming underfoot in your glass-floored bathroom, ladders into the water from your private terrace and room service delivered by outrigger canoe and you’re starting to get the idea. Even getting to your island of choice is a breathtaking adventure. Island-hopping by sea (whale watching, anyone?) or by small plane offers a chance to marvel at Tahiti’s beauty before you’ve even unpacked.
