Four Seasons Bora Bora is a gorgeous resort in French Polynesia and it sure does not disappoint! I was lucky enough to visit this incredible resort with photographer Jose Villa, videographer Joel Serrato, Cortnie Fausner from The Venue Report, and Summer Ball from Grey Likes Weddings. We spent our days relaxing, eating amazing food at restaurants with incredible views, getting treated at the spa, riding jet skis around the island, and swimming with sharks (!!!). As you can tell, Four Seasons Bora Bora is the perfect destination for couples who want a tropical paradise getaway. The breathtaking mountains and the clear blue water provide the perfect surrounding for a romantic and surreal vacation. The overwater bungalows are absolutely gorgeous- you can jump right into the water from your balcony!
Enjoy these photos by the incredibly talented Jose Villa!
The absolute highlight of the trip was the full day shark and ray tour with lunch! We went out on a small boat with the most fun guide named Stephen. He was such a character and we laughed nonstop all day! We snorkelled, swam with rays, and even swam with sharks, it was such a surreal experience! Below is a photo Jose Villa took… those are my legs with a shark swimming below!
Four Seasons Bora Bora has a lot of water activities available, from snorkelling to canoes to stand up paddle boards. There is so much to do while you’re there! I would highly recommend riding jet skis around the main island of Bora Bora, we had so much fun! It was so gorgeous to see the mountains on the main island from all the way around. It sprinkled for a little bit and then there was a huge rainbow over the mountains, it was like a dream. And it was incredible to see all of the shades of blue in the water! Even these beautiful photos cannot do it justice – it is so clear. We stopped a couple times along the way and jumped off of our jet skis and swam for a bit. Definitely a memorable experience!
Stay tuned for Thursday’s post on the romantic private dining options that Four Seasons Bora Bora offers – so perfect for your honeymoon!

Located in Cambodia’s untouched Koh Rong Archipelago, two pristine islands lie side by side. They are known locally as Song Saa – Khmer for ‘The Sweethearts’. Perfect for couples who are looking for a private island getaway, Song Saa offers incredible scenery, food, culture and luxury. You can spend your days at the spa, doing yoga on the beach, scuba diving, dining at their world class restaurant or relaxing in your infinity edge swimming pool. “Song Saa Private Island is as seductive as the name implies. Think intimate. Think luxurious. But above all think harmony – with all the elements of nature that make this place so special.” Take a look through these photos and I’m sure you’ll agree that Song Saa would make for an incredibly intimate and memorable honeymoon experience!

Thailand is always one of my favorite places to visit and I cannot recommend it enough to honeymooners who want a trip full of adventure and relaxation in an incredibly chic location! Soneva Kiri is the ultimate getaway spot when in Thailand. The resort it full of amazing features and breathtaking views in a location that feels “remote” but still is accessible.
Each room is a personal villa that are both large and luxurious. They feel like little retreats built right into the landscape and all have stunning views of sunsets and the secluded bay.
They have unique excursions that include the Mai Si honey farm, rain forest treks, and breathtaking waterfalls to see. If you love to snorkel or dive, Thailand has some amazing coral rich reefs around Koh Rand and Koh Chang Marine Park for you to explore!
One of their most popular and famous amenities is the dining pods. Personal bamboo baskets are risen 12 meters up to the treetops with waiters arriving by trapeze and serving gourmet dishes…can you believe that?! Definitely something I always encourage my clients to experience!
A couple of my other favorites would definitely be the Jungle Escape at the Spa (of course), wine tasting, the sunrise breakfast cruise, the den (a bamboo playhouse for kids), and of course…the Willy Wonka fantasy! A chilled chocolate room packed with chocolate truffles, lollipops, and cacao cocktails!? You definitely don’t need to convince me of that!
If you’re interested in taking a trip to Thailand, let me know! I’d love to help you experience all that this beautiful country has to offer. Plus, Ever After Honeymoons clients receive complimentary champagne and Thai tapas as well as hand-crafted Thai arrival and departure gifts!
I know, Oman certainly isn’t at the top of anyone’s dream honeymoon list…but it should be! The Six Senses Zighy Bay
will totally change your mind with it’s cool combo of culture and beaches! The resort is just a 2 hour drive from Dubai too so if you can’t decide between city and beach for your honeymoon, do both!
Their villas are gorgeous!! Such cool design and architecture!
One of the coolest parts of the resort is your arrival. You have three options: either ride in a 4×4 down the mountain, take a 15 minute scenic speedboat ride, (my personal favorite) paraglide in! How amazing is that?!
Zighy Bay has a ton of amazing dining options as well but I can’t get over the Shua Shack option! It’s an authentic Arabic dining experience served family style in this amazing ocean front setting.
And no honeymoon would be complete without a list of incredible activities! They offer everything from water skiing and wake boarding to rock climbing and a sunset cruise. You can choose to stay close to the resort or they also offer adventure options that are outside of the property as well!
Of course I have to highlight the spa as well, what girl wouldn’t! It’s a complete oasis with it’s calm and relaxing atmosphere and both local and Asian inspired treatments. Have a horrible sunburn from laying out on the gorgeous beaches all day long? Enjoy their Natural Sunburn Soother treatment! I know I could definitely go for a Balinese Massage right now!
