Our sneaky Instagram sleuthing tells us that the couple spent time at both the Four Seasons Bora Bora and Le Taha’a Resort & Spa.

What better way to ring in the New Year than a traditional Polynesian luau?


A fresh start for the new year is made even better by picture-perfect Polynesian views.

Le Taha’a Resort & Spa. is a five-star resort located on the Motu Tautau islet and has just 57 suites and villas, offering luxury and privacy.

Even celebs can’t resist the allure of blue water and overwater bungalows.

The Four Seasons Bora Bora features beachfront villas and overwater bungalow suites with views of Mount Otemanu.

Celebs: they’re just like us. Because if you’ve been to Bora Bora, you’ve taken this exact photo.


We can’t think of a better way to start the new year, so start planning your 2017 holiday trip to Bora Bora now.

Be sure to pick up pearls on your trip. They’re the must buy souvenir in French Polynesia. Call it a holiday gift to yourself. We won’t tell.
