Romanticism and emotion in Tahiti and its islands

From volcanic mountains to a galaxy of atolls, the islands offer a perfect world of romance between tropical forests, lagoons, deserted beaches and reefs. Its Spa centers are true joys to succumb to as a couple, a pleasant experience that can be completed with a romantic dinner of fresh fish and seafood under candlelight.

To get to know two opposite and fascinating sides of the destination, it is recommended to visit the islands of volcanic origin of the Society Archipelago, with the mythical Tahiti, Moorea and Bora Bora; and make an extension to the coral atolls of the Tuamotu archipelago, which are a world apart to our western eye due to their virgin landscapes, rows of coconut palms only swayed by the breeze, and a voice that whispers… maeva, welcome to paradise!

Bora Bora is another essential island. Known as “the island of love”, its sensuality emerges from the unreal colors that decorate every corner, and also from the exclusive hotel. The bungalows over the water are a private refuge from which to contemplate the environment and its natural wealth, with exclusive glass plates that allow you to see the seabed from the bed. Excursions are also organized to see and feel its marine species, such as the harmless and affectionate manta rays in a day swimming in the lagoon with them. A luxury to be shared between two are the typically Tahitian Spa treatments. The fresh flower bath for two is a classic, followed by a coconut pulp scrub and a massage with the famous monoi oil. In addition, the wellness centers and Spas usually have dream locations, among lush tropical gardens covered with hibiscus and palm trees, and overlooking the sea. Some pampering that the ‘celebrities’ who visit the islands know very well, and which they accompany with a treatment of black pearl powder from Tahiti to leave the skin like silk.

A beach just for two

The islands are dotted with small islets, known as ‘motus’ in Tahitian, with white, deserted beaches only accessible by boat, and which are the dream of any couple in search of complete privacy. Spending a day on its virgin beaches is possible without giving up exquisite eyes such as champagne or fresh grilled lobster.

The resorts offer ‘gourmet picnics’ to spend a day on a motu, accompanied by a chef who prepares the atmosphere, decorates the table in the shade of a coconut tree and cooks lunch with French and Tahitian specialties. In the local kitchen there is no lack of seafood and fresh fish, especially delicious in its raw variant and seasoned with coconut sauce. The cook will pick you up again at sunset so that lovers can enjoy, alone, a bath in the transparent waters of the lagoon and the impressive colors that are drawn in Tahiti and its islands at sunset.
