Undoubtedly the most celebrated island in the South Pacific, Bora Bora is French Polynesia’s leading lady. Her beauty is unrivaled and we are totally in love with Bora Bora, it is one of the few places on earth that everyone hopes to witness in their lifetime—and once you see it, you are forever in love.
Pink dawn and enough shades of blue from sapphire, moon blue, a blue so pure that it looks like emerald.. So unreal the Polynesia man considers it a God given gift. Blue in Tahitian is the same as the wild ocean on earth Moana. Touted as the most romantic place in the world and everyone’s dream honeymoon destination. We could never have afforded to come here for our honeymoon but are here for our familymoon!
With the well appointed over water and garden bungalows with luxurious amenities, powdery white sandy beaches, crystal clear shallow waters where you can see the tropical fishes from without ruining your flower crowned hair and soothing sunshine – there is no reason to save this just for you honeymoon, we saw several families with children and teenagers.. some multigenerational families as well. The staff at the resort are so sweet, friendly and there to pamper you and make your holiday memorable – whether you are on your honeymoon, babymoon or familymoon!
Nestled on a white beach and blue lagoon, the Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa is an idyllic retreat. Located on the French Polynesia group of islands on the Pacific Ocean, the resort is ten minutes from Vaitape village. We took a scenic flight to Bora Bora then arrived at the resort by a private hotel boat. Soaked up the privacy of a suite perfect for our family of four set over the water, Savored panoramic views over the lagoon and absorbing the tropical landscape…
We watched the sunset with cocktails from a Polynesian-style beach bar. Dined on local and Mediterranean cuisine in a relaxed island setting. Unwind and recharged by the pool and on the beach.
Surrounded by a blue lagoon and barrier reef, the island is a magical destination for water sports. Create lasting memories snorkeling with tropical fish in the barrier reef …windsurfing, jet skiing and scuba diving in the lagoon. Snorkeling equipment, paddle boards or pedalos were available at no cost at the Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa. We are Enjoying lazy days relaxing on the sandy beach and absorbing paradise island life while the kids are learning to paddle board and perusing the water activities.
