So, you’ve decided to propose to your love on the magical island of Bora Bora. But how does one pull off a Bora Bora proposal? With so much beauty and magic on this island, you could literally pick anywhere and be certain that it’s going to sweep them off their feet.

In this article, we’re going to narrow down the elite places to host your Bora Bora engagement. You’ve got the ring, you’ve got the love of your life, now let’s find the perfect proposal place. 

Book a romantic trip to luxury Bora Bora to plan the most memorable moment of your life… so far. 

Propose with a beach dinner

With a pristine coastline like Bora Bora, it would be amiss not to take advantage of the enchanting views with a beachside proposal.

With the help of your resort concierge, you can whisk your love to the beachfront or waterfront where the most intimate setting awaits. Meander down a candlelit walkway, where you’ll find a two-seater table, set up just for you. Here you’ll be served a bespoke menu that you know your partner will love. 

If you want to make it truly special, you could book the Polynesian dancing show and fire dance, or even fireworks to celebrate the occasion. One of the best places to do this is Four Seasons  Resort Bora Bora, which offers the most captivating views of the mountains and the glittering lagoon. It's one of our favourite ultra-luxury holidays in Bora Bora!

With a room makeover

One of the most romantic things you could do is enlist the help of the resort staff to create a romantic room makeover that will take their breath away.

You could opt to have rose petals strewn all over the bed with candles leading them to the proposal spot. Or even fill your private pool with petals, or perhaps a flower bath? Make sure you add champagne to toast the event after the inevitable ‘yes.’

You can book a wedding turndown service at The St Regis Bora Bora Resort.
