Love is in the Air

   Bora Bora has to be the most romantic destination on Earth. It’s really like something out of storybooks, with that tranquil lagoon and those toothlike volcanic rocks rising out of the water. Four Seasons Bora Bora is offering a package to up the romance quotient … as if those over-the-water bungalows were not enough.

   For the entire month of February (why limit the love to just one day?) the resort is throwing in a complimentary fifth night for those staying four, plus a couple’s Polynesian massage and a sunset cruise across those achingly blue lagoon waters on the FS catamaran. The accommodations at the Four Seasons are over-the-water bungalows (of course), or beachfront villas, with thatched roofs, wraparound views and original artwork. Sleep with the doors and windows open … It’s pure bliss.

   Taking a morning dip in the lagoon is a must, but the resort’s pool is pretty fabulous, too. The landscaping and infinity edge make the pool look like a natural part of the lagoon. And those views …

Bora Bora falls in the “must do (at least) once in a lifetime” category. I know I can’t wait to return…

Prices for the Four Seasons package start at 75,000 XPF (about $836 at this writing) per night. Highly recommended.


The cabanas follow the rhythms of the architecture and the local sensibilities.


Bungalows open up to the lagoon.


A perfect evening falls on Bora Bora.
