    I have been looking at the destination Bora Bora Island, and I think it is the most amazing place to go to, but very costly. Generally what I and my husband do when going on holiday is get packages which most of the time work out cheaper, as it includes everything.

    We would both love to go Bora Bora and would like to know if there are any Bora Bora Island packages from India, which we could choose from. Some hint to what the packages include would also be great to know, as there are a variety of packages available some including a lot of things and some not even including things like sightseeing.

    Hi there, welcome to the forum!

    A luxury honeymoon destination, Bora Bora has been attracting tourists all over the world since its beauty was unveiled to the public. Even Hollywood celebrities have made sure to put this destination in their bucket list. But yes, it's definitely worth a visit, and just one look at this picture will tell you exactly why:

    Bora Bora
    Incredibly clear waters with different shades of blue, a view of an extinct volcano and an overwater bungalow, these are the ingredients of a perfect honeymoon, at least for most people. And truly, Bora Bora embodies these features, in addition to premier luxury resorts and the numerous water sports that are available in the island. Being an island in French Polynesia though, getting to the region is quite challenging, with an airplane ride to Tahiti and yet another propeller ride to Bora Bora proper. In addition, rates to reach the island are quite expensive, hence it's called a luxury destination.

    Thankfully, some tour or travel operators around the country has started introducing packages from India to Bora Bora. Some packages include many features like the air fare, accommodation and even the activities. On the other hand, some packages merely include the accommodation and meals. As such, you have to pick carefully as to which packages best suit you and your partner. In here, we will highlight the different tour operators and the packages that they have for Bora Bora. So let's begin:

    Thomas Cook - Established by the end of the 18th century, Thomas Cook Limited is a well-known travel agency around the world. It did start from Mumbai though and started being gradually known globally. They have two packages for Bora Bora which you can avail of:

    1. French Polynesia Honeymoon Special Package (Three-Star Hotel)
    • Duration - Five nights and six days
    • Route - Tahiti > Bora Bora
    • Activities - Dolphin watching, aqua biking, sunset cruise and sightseeing
    • Accommodation - Three-star hotel (Le Meridien)
    • Other Inclusions - Daily breakfast (except day one), one dinner on the last day, domestic flights on the island, handling fees and taxes
    • Exclusions - Air fare from India to Tahiti, visa fees, travel insurance, additional meals, surcharges, personal expenses and water sports not mentioned above
    • Rate - Rs. 238,260 per adult
    2. French Polynesia Honeymoon Special Package (Four-Star Hotel)
    • Duration - Five nights and six days
    • Route - Tahiti > Bora Bora
    • Activities - Dolphin watching, aqua biking, sunset cruise and sightseeing
    • Accommodation - Four-star hotel (Manava Suite Resort and Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort & Spa)
    • Other Inclusions - Daily breakfast (except day one), one dinner on the last day, domestic flights on the island, handling fees and taxes
    • Exclusions - Air fare from India to Tahiti, visa fees, travel insurance, additional meals, surcharges, personal expenses and water sports not mentioned above
    • Rate - Rs. 281,960 per adult
    As you can see, both packages have the same inclusions. The only difference is their accommodation, one offers three-star facilities while the other offers four-star facilities. These packages are both customisable so you can tweak it according to your needs. However, keep in mind that air fares and other meals aside from breakfast are not yet included in the package. Also, there are not as many water sports that are included in the package too. Sightseeing is only in Tahiti too, not in Bora Bora.

    Here are some information about the tour agency:
    • Address - Thomas Cook Limited, Shop No. 10, Ground Floor Satyam Complex, Nehru Place, District Centre, Delhi 110019, India.
    • Contact Number - (011) 264 67484.
    Trans World Holidays - This tour agency is a part of the Trans India Holidays and Trans World Travels, agencies under the GB Morrison Travels Private Limited Company. The company has been in existence for over 20 years now. The establishment of the newer Trans India Holidays is to cater to travellers from India to international destinations, like Bora Bora. They also have two packages for Bora Bora:

    1. Tahiti Honeymoon Special Package (Four-Star Hotel)
    • Duration - Four nights and five days
    • Route - Tahiti > Bora Bora
    • Activity - Dolphin watching
    • Accommodation - Three-star hotel (Intercontinental Hotel)
    • Other Inclusions - Daily breakfast and domestic flights on the island
    • Exclusions - Air fare from India to Tahiti, visa fees, travel insurance, additional meals, surcharges, personal expenses and water sports except for dolphin watching
    • Rate - Rs. 113,000 per adult
    2. Tahiti Honeymoon Special Package (Five-Star Hotel)
    • Duration - Four nights and five days
    • Route - Tahiti > Bora Bora
    • Activity - Dolphin watching
    • Accommodation - Five-star hotel (Le Meridien)
    • Other Inclusions - Daily breakfast and domestic flights on the island
    • Exclusions - Air fare from India to Tahiti, visa fees, travel insurance, taxes, additional meals, surcharges, personal expenses and water sports except for dolphin watching
    • Rate - Rs. 129,000 per adult
    So with these packages, you also have the same case as above. Only the hotels differ and there's not much variation when it comes to activities. Downside is, though these packages are cheaper, they aren't that inclusive and you only have one activity which is dolphin watching. Yet, these rates don't include the taxes still so there might be additional charges.

    Here are some more information about the tour agency:
    • Address - No. 18, Community Center, Kailash Colony Extension, Zamrudpur, New Delhi 110048, India.
    • Contact Number - +91 11 29234617.
    Ace Tours India - Being in the business since 1993, Ace Tours India has been an important part of the tourism industry. Their affordable rates and warm service has made them one of the most well-known tour agencies in the country. They are far from the small agency they started with and now even offer international tour packages to guests.

    1. Bora Bora Islands Package
    • Duration - Seven nights and eight days
    • Route - Tahiti > Bora Bora
    • Activity - None
    • Accommodation - Three-star hotel (Novotel Bora Bora)
    • Other Inclusions - Domestic flights on the island and return air fare plus taxes
    • Exclusions - Sightseeing, visa fees, activities, meals and water sports
    • Rate - Rs. 117,999 per adult
    This package does include the air fare from India to Bora Bora and back. However, it does not include any activities at all, nor sightseeing. Thus, you'd have to shell out some money to avail of these activities. Meals are also not included in the package so that's another downside. Accommodation is in the form of a three-star hotel, only in Bora Bora and not including Tahiti.

    Here are some more information you might need about the company:
    • Address - F-22/23, Jolly Arcade, Ghoddod Road, Surat 395007, Gujarat, India.
    • Contact Number - +91 261 6718888.
    So there you go, these are all the travel agencies around India offering packages to Bora Bora. I hope this helps you.:)
