Bora Bora resorts are known for pulling out all the stops: seductive beds and baths strewn with tropical flowers, couples massages with tiare-blossom-scented oil, private moonlit dinners on the beach, and castaway motu picnics where you’re left blissfully alone to sun and swim.

The water’s incredible clarity and schools of tropical fish are addictively hypnotic.

Dining, too, is a treat, from the local favorite poisson cru (raw tuna marinated in coconut milk and lime) to gourmet menus at resort restaurants helmed by name chefs.

When darkness descends, Tahitian fire dancers toss flaming torches with passionate precision and couples slowly parade back to romantically lit bungalows. And after a few nights like this, Bora Bora becomes your own exclusive little world and you have a new definition of the word civilized.
Your options in Bora Bora are as broad as your imagination, whether it is natural, nautical or cultural.
