While the backdrop, luxurious serenity, and seclusion set the stage for a whimsical vacation, those looking to kick the romance up a notch should be aware of these specific activities on Tahiti that stand out as uniquely romantic and special. Each of the activities listed below is a perfect way to say, “I love you,” “Will you marry me?” or “Here’s to another 25 years together!” to the one person who is most dear.
- Hiking to the Top of Mt. Otemanu, Bora Bora
Mt. Otemanu, which is one of the two emerald green volcanic mountains jutting 2,400 feet above mainland Bora Bora, is a breathtaking sight to behold. Couples can explore the lush peak by Jeep 4×4 excursion or a guided tour. The view from the top is breathtaking to behold!
2. Dinner at La Villa Mahana, Bora Bora
Enjoy a romantic gourmet dinner with a wine pairing at the incredibly exclusive and intimate La Villa Mahana. This private and quaint restaurant has only one dinner seating and serves only six couples per evening, creating the perfect ambiance for a peaceful and romantic evening. Nestled inside a replica of a Tuscan Villa on Bora Bora, this restaurant offers a five course Epicurean menu, featuring classic French cuisine. Due to the intimate size of this restaurant, we strongly recommend that reservations be made as far in advance as possible.
3. Stargazing at the Hotel Kia Ora Sauvage, Rangiroa
The Kia Ora Sauvage Resort allows couples to connect in a refreshing, natural, simple environment. The resort is extremely intimate in size, accommodating only 10 guests at any given time, and is not wired for electricity. Each evening, the hotel staff provides guests with soft glowing oil lamps. After a tasty and healthy dinner, we recommend you take your oil lamp outside, snuggle up with your love, and gaze at the endless starry sky. You will be shocked at how many more stars you can see in a sky that is completely unobstructed by the lights of a bustling city. This truly is one of the most intimate and romantic settings on the planet.
4. Breakfast Surprise by Canoe, Islands of Tahiti
Many overwater bungalows in Tahiti offer guests the opportunity to have their breakfast brought to their bungalow each morning by canoe. The hotels are always willing to assist guests in staging the ultimate romantic gestures and proposals. An especially lovely way to propose, or even give a special gift (like flowers or jewelry), is to request that the hotel staff bring your surprise along with breakfast in the canoe! Your special someone will definitely be surprised by a gift, flowers, or an engagement ring brought to them via canoe!
5. Private Motu Dinners
Romantic Services in Tahiti are truly top notch, and a day on your very own “island” is definitely one of the most romantic things to do in Tahiti! At several resorts, including the St. Regis Bora Bora, guests can arrange a day on their own private motu (islet). As you relax in the beauty and seclusion of your motu, enjoy a gourmet picnics, outdoor massages, or jet ski rides to make the most of a romantic day on your very own islet.
