If you are hesitating about the destination of your honeymoon (Caribbean Islands, Bali, Greek Islands, West Indies, Pacific Islands or Indian Ocean…), discover why Tahiti is the ideal destination for a honeymoon. And if you hesitate to organize your own trip, you will see that there is no need for an agency to organize a dream stay in Tahiti. Flights, budget and formalities… Discover all our advice to prepare your honeymoon in a paradise destination: Tahiti. Finally, I will reveal to you which is the best hotel for a romantic honeymoon in Tahiti.
Honeymoon in Tahiti – Ideal destination?
Why choose Tahiti for a honeymoon?
Because your honeymoon must have a postcard decor, because your honeymoon must be associated with paradisiacal beaches, coconut palms, fine sand and turquoise water, Tahiti proves to be the ideal destination for a romantic stay!
And for a totally successful honeymoon in Tahiti, you can combine a romantic stay with some beautiful tourist discoveries and good little restaurants to taste the exotic flavours or simply to discover the local cuisine.
Destination Tahiti – For which young couple?
Unlike a tourist tour, the mythical honeymoon rhymes with evasion, change of scenery, luxury stay, relaxation and rest. Tahiti is a perfect destination for all newlyweds who want to disconnect completely from their daily lives and decompress after the stress and tensions of preparing for the wedding ceremony.
Indeed, a honeymoon in Tahiti will allow the young couple to meet each other in complete privacy, to rest on the most beautiful beaches of Tahiti, to swim in turquoise and crystal clear waters, to explore the underwater fauna and flora but also to reserve privileged and romantic moments for themselves (walks under the stars, sunsets, candlelit dinners…) and this, in an idyllic setting!
Book your honeymoon with a travel agency?
For those who don’t want to get involved in organizing their trip, going to a travel agency will be the best solution. Indeed, the only thing they will have to do will be to take an appointment to choose the island (Bora Bora, Moorea, the Tuamotus…) and book the trip all-inclusive (possibility to put the honeymoon on a wedding list).
It’s fast, easy but often very expensive… Indeed, honeymoon packages are often more costly even if they display promotional prices. In addition, some tour operators offer honeymoon packages in which you must add the price of excursions, supplements for certain rooms or even increase the price to access certain services (diving, spa, massages…).
Finally, with the price of a wedding trip to Tahiti organized by an agency you could make at least 2 trips to Tahiti organized by yourself and in the same hotels….
Organize your holiday in Tahiti yourself?
If you start early enough (ideally 5 to 6 months before), organizing a stay in Tahiti is not at all a big task and will have some significant advantages:
- A much lower budget than with an agency;
- The possibility to choose exactly what you want and therefore to have a tailor-made trip;
- Avoid the risks of mass tourism (large standardised hotels, clouds of other honeymooners, crowded beaches or buffet restaurants…).
Honeymoon in Tahiti – How to organize it?
Because with Internet today, there is nothing easier than organizing a trip to the other side of the world, here are some tips so that you can prepare your honeymoon in Tahiti without spending a fortune…
Honeymoon in Tahiti – When to plan your trip?
The sooner the better. This way, you will be able to benefit from better prices for both flights and hotels in Tahiti. In fact, as soon as you have determined the exact dates of your holidays, you will need to start thinking about your honeymoon, validate the budget and start booking online (see our tips below).
Honeymoon in Tahiti – When to go?
If you are unsure about the time period to go to Tahiti, here is a link that will confirm if the dates chosen are the best for a honeymoon in Tahiti:
Honeymoon in Tahiti – How long should you plan to stay?
To be able to enjoy your honeymoon, escaping, totally forget the daily routine and visit the surroundings… the ideal will be to go to Tahiti for at least 2 weeks.
But, if you have a tight budget, it is better to leave for a shorter period of time but enjoy an unforgettable trip of 7 to 10 days rather than choose a less interesting destination to spend more time there… Similarly, it would be a shame to arbitrate by choosing to stay in a cheaper hotel that does not make you dream…
For an exceptional honeymoon, it is not the duration that is important but the quality!
Honeymoon in Tahiti – What is the budget?
The budget for a trip to Tahiti is high but will depend on many factors that can reduce it considerably:
- flight costs according to the choice of dates (avoid school holidays),
choice of hotel,
- choice of restaurants or all-inclusive package,
- choice of the duration of the stay,
- choice of excursions and activities on site.
It is therefore up to you to calculate if your budget will allow you to go to Tahiti on the desired dates, for 7, 10 or 15 days and in a dream hotel or in a small charming hotel…
The best thing to do is to prepare a “honeymoon” kitty that will allow you to make the first reservations on the Internet (flights and hotel) knowing that you will have a complementary budget made up of the generosity of the wedding guests.
Plan and reserve in advance
As soon as you have determined the exact dates of your trip, you will need to start comparing flight prices to Tahiti on the internet. Indeed, according to the Companies and the dates the prices can go from simple to double… For that, one of the best sites, serious and reliable that I advise you to use is the Skyscanner comparator : Skyscanner.
Then you will need to book your hotel as soon as possible (see our recommendations below).
Going to Tahiti – What formalities?
To go to Tahiti, you will have to think about the passport. To be peaceful and not to be stressed, plan to apply for your passport 2 to 3 months before your departure. If you have one, check that it is valid for at least 6 months after the date of your return.
Insurance and banking
You can take out additional insurance with your flight ticket. However, if you pay with a Visa Premier or Mastercard Gold card, be aware that the card’s insurance is generally sufficient for repatriation, loss of luggage, accidents, etc. Simply plan to take with you the Assistance telephone number of your card (number to contact first in the event of a problem on site) and the insurance policy number (on the general conditions).
Finally, it is advisable to inform your bank of your departure abroad so that it does not block your bank account once it is there (withdrawals or payments abroad can trigger suspicious use alerts).
Which hotel for a romantic honeymoon in Tahiti?
Because your honeymoon in Tahiti must be a 5* honeymoon, the hotel I propose below is an exceptional establishment combining luxury, calm and pleasure: Sofitel Moorea the Ora Beach Resort.
To benefit from certain advantages and small attentions on site, do not forget to mention that it is a honeymoon when you book or when you arrive. Remember to take a copy of your marriage contract or family booklet to benefit from it (proof may be requested).
Perfect hotel for a romantic stay
The setting and exceptional style of this hotel offer a feeling of luxury and privilege but also all the discretion, intimacy and calm that lovers can seek…
Hotel located in a dream place in Moorea
Tahiti’s beaches are not the most beautiful in the archipelago, so I advise you to take the boat and in 30 minutes, you will be on Moorea. There are beautiful white sandy beaches with a turquoise lagoon and transparent waters. It is therefore on the most beautiful beach of Moorea that this hotel is located, in an idyllic setting. Everything is perfect to enjoy a thousand ways to spend time with your lover, to spend romantic evenings but also to discover Moorea’s tourist sites… The bonus of this hotel is to be able to go swimming among the rays or with dolphins!
Note that this hotel is much cheaper than the hotels in Bora Bora but just as beautiful!
Hotel with top-of-the-range services
The luxury services are numerous and will satisfy you: spacious and refined rooms and suites, swimming pool, spas, hammam, jacuzzi, massages, activities and water sports, gourmet restaurant… The best way is to see for yourself by going and discover it by clicking on the link below.
