Even with so many alternatives, Moorea and Bora Bora are the stand-out honeymoon destinations if you want to have stretches of coral sand beaches and crescent-shaped lagoons to yourselves. Or stay in over-the-water bungalows with the sound of gentle waves lapping on the shore beneath you.
Even away from the water’s edge an island like Bora Bora provides enchantment. Dense forest covers the mountainous interior, inviting you to explore the natural flora and fauna of an unspoiled wilderness. And when you return to your resort, you’ll experience some very un-castaway comforts. Fine dining, for example, and pampering sessions in elegant spas. The South Pacific may be part of the world’s largest and least explored ocean, but that doesn’t mean modern luxury can’t be part of your honeymoon.
Begin your honeymoon with a night in an Ocean View Room at Hotel Shangri-La, Santa Monica.
