There is nothing quite like whisking your loved one away for a holiday on a romantic island. According to the 2014 World’s Best Awards (Travel & Leisure), the most romantic island in the world is the French Polynesian island of Bora Bora.
This ‘splinter’ of French Polynesia is fringed by tiny islets (motus) and a spectacular coral reef swirling with colourful marine life. Featuring Mount Otemanu’s jagged peak at its heart, Bora Bora seduces couples with delightful bungalows perched delicately above the turquoise waters of stunning lagoons.
For romantic perfection, booking any one of the villas numbered 103 to 110 (each one of which features a private deck complete with outdoor shower and whirlpool) at St Regis Bora Bora Resort is definitely recommended.
Dinner for Two
The Bora Kaina Hut, a sand-floored Vaitape establishment, serves a sumptuous local take – Poisson cru – on Ceviche that should not be missed under any circumstances. Having said that, there are plenty of equally excellent restaurants serving a delicious array of local and international delicacies all over the place and, to be perfectly honest, surrounded by this kind of gorgeous tropical scenery, a cheese sandwich would probably taste heavenly.
Must do Activities
Apart from taking leisurely hand-in-hand strolls along stunning beaches, couples should definitely make the time to take a private Diveasy Bora Bora snorkelling trip. The Diveasy dive-masters are known for their skills in getting people up close & personal with giant manta rays, moray eels and other exciting marine life, making these trips not-to-miss adventures.
