Dream Destinations – Bora Bora

The ultimate spot for relaxation around the world has to be Bora Bora located in the heart of French Polynesia. Of course, visiting this part of the world is incredibly expensive due to it’s luxurious stereotype and without doubt it clearly lives up to its expectations and reputation.

Here are my top 5 reasons that you have to splurge for this once in a lifetime opportunity to visit the gorgeous island of Bora Bora.

Over-Water Huts

Four Seasons

If you don’t think those over-water bungalows look cool, then maybe Bora Bora isn’t for you but I think you would hard pressed to find anything else around the world that is as relaxing as this! I can just imagine laying in bed in one of these villas listening to the waves surrounding you and then being able to walk out of your bedroom door and dive into the ocean – pretty cool right! The above shot is taken from the Four Seasons Bora Bora resort.

The ultimate romantic spot in Bora Bora is also a photographers dream. Set in the heart of French Polynesia, this discovery excursion will help reveal the secrets of what made this lagoon so fabulous. A great way to see the local coral reefs and ocean life whilst at the same time capturing some amazing shots with your loved one.

Mount Otemanu

Mount Otemanu is the highest point on Bora Bora and partners with Mt. Pahia to form an extinct volcano that is now a truly beautiful part of the skyline surrounding the gorgeous ocean landscape. A haven for wildlife and a photographers paradise especially if interested in birdlife, this looks to be a perfect spot to get out those hiking boots and go exploring in the wilderness.

Local Cuisine

So many different cuisines to sample at the gorgeous hotels and resorts but surely the desserts are the most appealing when you see images such as the macaroon above!

There are so many amazing hotels to choose from in Bora Bora but they all have one thing in common – awesome swimming pools or ocean access! Imagine relaxing by the pool and then crashing under one of those canopies before sampling one of the delicious desserts. The more you think about this part of the world, the more you realize this is somewhere you have to go to just recharge your batteries and indulge in this natural beauty.

You know, there's a lot of us commenting that we're ready to go to Bora Bora. I'm thinking "group discount"! You in? ;)

WE SURE ARE!! I think thats a great idea, maybe we can get a group and they will cut us a deal (or maybe I am just living in a dream world...oh wait a minute that dream world is where I want to be and it's called Bora Bora).

Bora Bora is on my list of places to visit. My girlfriend just went a few months ago and stayed at the Four Seasons. She absolutely loved it!! I plan on relaxing in one of those villas one day.

I haven't heard one person give a negative review on Bora Bora, which kind of surprises me a little given the crazy prices of actually getting there from pretty much anywhere around the world. But I guess when it costs that much you can create a pure relaxation spot that will keep folks coming back!

I don't think you could have picked a better "B" dream destination, but I also worry that nothing else can beat Bora Bora - period.

Can't wait to go myself someday. (Not by myself, though, this doesn't seem like the place for that.)

It's almost one of those that it would have been nice if Bora Bora had started with the letter 'Z' so that it was the ultimate finale of the challenge. But then again, I think we have one or two more #DreamDestinations up our sleeve that will entice you to want to go there next :)
