Holiday In Bora Bora

You’ve got holiday leave sneaking up on you, but a stay-cation isn’t going to cut it this time. You need thatched-roof bungalows, candlelit dinners and don’t-lift-a-finger service. 

You need heavenly beaches and mind-blowing food. In short, you need Bora Bora packages.

Things to Do in Bora Bora

The centrepiece of Bora Bora holidays is Mount Otemanu, whose 730-m peak is visible throughout the island. By day, it reaches literally into the clouds; at sunset, the darkened peak contrasts with the orange sky. This mountain is more than just a great photo op, though—climbing to its fabled cave is an adrenaline-pumping day trip. It’s a tough hike, involving a bit of climbing at the end, but will reward you with incredible views of the lagoon.

Congratulations! You may now return to your tiny umbrella-clad pina coladas knowing you accomplished something. It’s OK to admit it—you’re in good company if you just want to while away holidays to Bora Bora with beach reads and easy-drinking adult beverages. When it’s time to watch the sunset, it doesn’t get any better than Matira Beach on the island’s southernmost tip. Look into our awesome Bora Bora car hire options on lastminute.co.nz and you’ll get amazing sunset snaps and be back in time for dinner.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Sure, the precious memories you’re making are your best Bora Bora holiday souvenirs (not to mention that sweet new profile pic), but if you’re looking to impress your friends, a little shopping is in order. Make a trip to Vaitape for black pearls, hand-painted pareu sarongs and classic Tiki woodcarvings. And if you find yourself addicted to the coconut-infused monoi soaps that make your hands as soft as a baby’s you-know-what, you’ll find plenty to take home and stash.

When it’s time for dinner, you’ll really see why Bora Bora is called “the Romance Island”. Dine in an open-air terrace with lagoon views, in a poolside cabana or right on the beach with your own private, candle-lit table. French-Polynesian fusion is the name of the game, with local treats like sea urchin and prawns cooked up in vanilla or red wine sauces. If it’s local food you crave, save plenty of room for dishes like poisson cru, raw fish marinated in lime juice and served in coconut cream.

While Fiji holiday packages may boast more bars and clubs to practice your moves, Bora Bora sets itself apart with the opportunity to learn a few new ones. Ever seen someone play the nose flute? Or dancers shaking their hips faster than Shakira on speed? Take in a traditional ote’a music performance, and you just may be so lucky. And when you and your sweetheart aren’t relaxing with a mai tai and a view (ocean or otherwise), you’ll be perfecting Bora Bora’s favourite pastime—gazing into each other’s eyes.

What’s Next?

Book one of the Bora Bora holiday packages on lastminute.co.nz and say “na-na” to your morning commute. All you’ll need to do is make it from your private suite to the restaurant patio—or even better, order up room service and stay in bed just a little longer.
