Top Romantic Tahiti Excursions & Activities

Romantic Canoe Breakfast

From the deck of your Overwater Bungalow, as the sun slowly rises from the horizon casting a warm brilliant glow onto the lagoon waters, you will experience the signature Tahitian breakfast service. A traditional Polynesian outrigger canoe brings a delicious continental breakfast to your Overwater Bungalow where you will be served a delicious breakfast by a Tahitian Vahine on your private bungalow deck overlooking some of the most beautiful lagoons and views in the world.


Private Tahiti Motu Picnic

Enjoy a perfect day on your own private island! Begin with a private lagoon tour of the island and surrounding lagoons, many include a stop for snorkeling or a private shark or ray watching tour. Your guide will take you to a private island where you will enjoy a delicious picnic or barbecue lunch set exclusively for you on a table in the warm lagoon waters. Spend the rest of the day indulging or just relaxing as you listen to the gentle waves as they kiss the shore.


Romantic Helicopter Escapade to Heart Shaped Island of Tupai


Some say that Mother Nature gave the Pacific Ocean the gift of a heart, which hid it in the waters of Polynesia, under the protection of Mount Otemanu. Inaccessible by sea, this untamed beauty called Tupai only reveals its secret to visitors arriving from the air. Departing from your hotel on Bora Bora, fly over the little deserted open heart-shaped atoll and admire the purity of its colours, before landing on one of its fine sand beaches. This heart shaped island offers the best backdrop in Tahiti for a romantic proposal or celebration of love.


Getting Married in Tahiti & Polynesian Wedding Ceremonies

Visitors to the islands of Tahiti have a variety of options to celebrate their wedding or marriage including choosing one of many beautiful and traditional Polynesian wedding ceremonies offered by the hotels and resorts or choosing a legal union in the islands.

In the past, legal unions were not available to non residents of the islands. Newly legalized, guests and visitors may legally marry on the islands of Tahiti, Moorea and Bora Bora. Legal unions are conducted by an officiant in the city hall. It is important to note these legal unions require advance planning of at least 60-120 days due to the required approvals and foreign certified documents which will need to be approved.

Less complicated are the Polynesian wedding ceremony offered and held by your Tahiti resort. These ceremonies are not legal weddings but are ceremonies held for their romance and beauty. Couples intending to marry legally can do so at home and then exchange personal vows at one of these celebrations. These ceremonies are often held on the most beautiful location at the resort, on the beach facing the sunset or at the resort’s Tahiti wedding chapel. These chapels can be quite stunning, located high on a mountain peak overlooking the lagoon or the ever popular overwater bungalow wedding chapel with a glass bottom floor allowing couples to say their vows as the fish float below their feet!
