We’re both from Mumbai. We met in the 9th grade, dated for 11 years and got married last December. Our honeymoon was from the 28th of December to the 16th of January.

A wedding in December limits your travel options. We’d have loved to travel to Europe, but weren’t keen on a winter honeymoon. New Zealand was an easy choice – Miten is very adventurous and loves an adrenaline rush. And I am able to be adventurous only around him.
Bora Bora has always been on my bucket list. New Zealand was going to be crazy, so Bora Bora was our romantic getaway for the perfect balance.

Honeymoon Highlights
In New Zealand, we visited Auckland, Rotorua, Queenstown and Franz Joseph. We stayed at Sky City in Auckland, the Copthrone in Queenstown and in Scenic Hotel in Franz Joseph. We checked into the Four Seasons in Bora Bora.

Best Meals
Queenstown
You have to try Ferg Burger! Also, the double chocolate cookies were to die for! Vinnes Pizza - Delicious pizza! and Patagonia – I preferred the ice-cream over all the other desserts here. They were the best.

Auckland
If you’re missing the taste of home, Davis is a great Indian restaurant here.

Franz Joseph
We ate at Kings Restaurant which has amazing Chinese and Indian food.

Most Romantic Moment
Actually, every moment in Bora Bora was romantic. Sitting in our balcony, sipping wine while looking out at the pristine blue ocean… Indescribably beautiful!

Advice for couples
If you’re travelling to that side of the world, Bora Bora is a must-do. It is almost too good to be true. In New Zealand, we loved Queenstown and Franz Joseph. We preferred the buzz of the south to the quiet north, to be honest. Would not recommend spending too much time up north.
