French Polynesia, One Of The Most Romantic Destination

By: Wolfgang Jaegel

A romantic destination is a tranquil place on the planet, with isolated beaches, calm seas, the charming supple sun, and the sky kissing the lush green trees. Such a destination on the earth is French Polynesia, which is a constellation of 118 islands and atolls that are spread across the five archipelagos in the South Pacific.

Also known as the Tahitian Islands, French Polynesia stands out from all other romantic destinations in the world, due to its invigorating settings consisting of valleys filled with aromatic flowers, quaint motus, sparkling blue lagoons, miles of quiet pristine beaches, and a myriad of intimate resorts and small peaceful villages.

Perhaps for this reason, honeymooners, newly weds, and couples celebrating their anniversaries come here to celebrate a milestone of their relationships. No wonder why French Polynesia has been ranked among the top romantic destinations in the world.

Each of the Tahitian islands is picturesque and unique. Probably the most sought after among the Tahitian islands is the Society Island Group, which consists of islands such as Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, Huahine, Maupiti, Raiatea, Tetiaroa and Taha'a. Islands of Marquesas and Tuamotu archipelagos such as Tikehau and Rangiroa are also equally enchanting. Al though spectacular, the other two island groups in French Polynesia such as the Austral Islands and Clipperton Island are seldom visited areas.

No matter you are a lover, honeymooner, or a newly wed, Tahitian Islands offer a range of options. For those who want to enjoy their honeymoon or renew their vows in a unique way, one of the best ways would be a wedding in traditional Tahitian style.

A Polynesian style traditional wedding is truly a great experience, and it can be as simple as a sunset ceremony on a secluded beach coupled with the service of priest and presence of Tahitian music and dance or as extravagant like a royal event. In fact, it is all up to you on to choose an option that best fits your dream and budget. However, for those couples or lovers who want to be done it in a traditional style, head to Tiki Village Theater, a traditional Tahitian village where a number of craftsmen live and work.

Tiki village allows to choose from three types of wedding ceremonies such as the Princess Wedding, the Royal Wedding, and the Royal Deluxe wedding. The Princess wedding is complete with a wedding ceremony conducted by the High Priest as well as the Chief of the village, traditional dance and music, crowns of flowers for couples, and transportation to return the hotel.

Included in the Royal Wedding are arrival of bride and groom from the hotel by canoe, strong Polynesian warriors carrying couples in a royal chair, romantic cruise, and first night on the Royal Tahitian Floating House. In the case of the Royal Deluxe Wedding, it covers a spectacular Tahitian dance show and a night on the Royal Tahitian floating house, apart from the wedding ceremony.

One of the specialties of Tahitian Islands is overwater bungalows or traditional style thatched roof bungalows that sit directly sparkling lagoon waters. This option is great for those who seek privacy. For a memorable experience, couples and lovers can take a romantic picnic on any of the tiny islets in Tahiti. Many of the resorts and hotels in the region arrange superb options to enjoy a memorable picnic with your spouse or lover by preparing gourmet meals and all other required facilities.

Another great way to rekindle your romantic feelings is to take a circle-island tour that passes through the scenic villages in the area. Cruising, helicopter tours, 4x4 safari tours, guided nature hiking, and horseback riding are some of the most popular ways to explore the scenic beauty of the place.

Apart from these, several others options are available for couples honeymooning in Tahiti, such as world-class scuba diving, snorkeling, and visiting lagoonarium at Bora Bora. Above all, couples can have a unique experience by shopping Tahitian cultured pearls, which are renowned across the world as Black pearls. You can either buy it from any of the pearl shops found here or from pearl farms located in such destinations as Huahine, Rangiroa, Taha'a, Manihi, Raiatea, Tikehau, and Fakarava.

To cater to the unique requirements of couples as well as to make their vacation truly memorable, many hotels and resorts in French Polynesia including Bora Bora, Tahiti, and Moorea provides great choices. Some of them even offer spa and fitness facilities. In addition, majority of the resorts have designed superb packages for an enjoyable wedding and honeymoon in Tahitian Islands.
