The m/s Paul Gauguin’s “Romantic Escapades” experience offers guests the opportunity to disembark for a night to spend an evening in an overwater bungalow at one of Bora Bora’s award-winning luxury resorts, the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa. Couples can enjoy treatments at the resort’s Deep Ocean Spa’s glass-bottom, overwater couples' bungalow; candlelight dinners for two on a private motu; or lounge beachside enjoying stunning views of the lagoon and Mount Otemanau.
The InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa is also home to the only overwater wedding chapel in French Polynesia – the Blue Lagoon Chapel. A variety of commitment and wedding packages are available for both beachside and chapel ceremonies. The resort’s most popular ceremony package includes traditional gowns, a “Tifaifai” quilt (a traditional Tahitian wedding quilt symbolizing a couple’s union), a local priest, a group of dancers and musicians, tropical flower arrangements, leis and crowns, as well as a wedding certificate made of traditional "tapa."
Back onboard the m/s Paul Gauguin, a number of customized romantic options await couples, including: relaxing spa treatments at the new Deep Nature Spa, sunset dinners enjoyed on the couple’s stateroom private balcony, private dives and island excursions, in-stateroom bottle of Champagne, celebratory confections, and a Polynesian blessing ceremony performed by Les Gauguines – the ship’s own troupe of Polynesian entertainers.
