Karan and Soni had waited for over a year after they got married to go on a romantic holiday. So the destination they picked had to be out of this world and it was! The couple packed their bags and hopped onto a flight to Bora Bora in French Polynesia for a honeymoon that proved to be an extraordinary experience.

How We Met
“Karan and I, both live in New York. We met in high school and have been together for 11 years now. We tied the knot on January 5, 2017, but weren’t able to make time or go on our honeymoon till April this year. And boy was it worth the wait!”

Honeymoon Planning
“We decided to visit Bora Bora after much debate and planning. We considered other French Polynesian islands, Europe, and Australia. Both of us had already explored many parts of Europe - Karan even proposed to me in France, so we decided to eliminate that option. Between Australia and French Polynesia, we couldn’t resist the gorgeous lagoon pictures of Bora Bora. To top it off, the Four Seasons Bora Bora which we were considering has some gorgeous overwater bungalows which sealed our decision. It was one of the best choices we made!”

Best Meal
“The best meal of our trip was definitely the beautiful dinner on a private island. As the sun was setting we got into a private boat which took us to the island, which had been beautifully decorated with rose petals. We then enjoyed a wonderful five-course dinner in the candlelight. Karan ordered the mahi-mahi which was to die for, and I couldn’t stop eating the truffle mashed potatoes that came with my steak.”   ”

Most Romantic Moment
“The Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora is a beautiful property. It’s so large that even if it’s fully booked, you can have a long stroll without seeing other guests. The privacy is unmatched especially when your bungalow is facing the open water. Our entire stay very romantic. However, If I had to pick one incident, it would have to be the time we spent on the private island, indulging in delectable cuisine and enjoying each other’s company.”

Must-experience
“If you love adventure, you have to sign up for the Sting Ray and Shark Excursion! It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. Karan and I were just five inches away from touching sharks, and the rays are some of the most beautiful and playful creatures to snorkel with. Also, if you love to hike, go up Mt. Otemanu. Better yet, rent some ATVs and have a blast riding with the wind in your hair. The views at the top are to die for.”

Must-avoid
“Avoid the Bloody Mary’s restaurant on the main island. It seems like a very popular place given its reviews on Yelp and other websites. However, we found it dirty. Plus, the food and service there were unsatisfactory.”
