Unquestionably Bora Bora’s best location & needless to say,
our most popular wedding venue.
Here is what you will see from your private boat as you approach 'the motu' (island) for your Traditional Tahitian Wedding, your Traditional Renewal of Vows or your special Honeymoon Ceremony:
“The Motu” encompassing Point Faroone on stunningly beautiful Motu Piti Aau - 'faroone' meaning “bend in the sand”; 'piti aa'u' meaning “twice the sentiment, twice the emotion ....... twice the giving” - there can be no better place on earth than here to be married!
Just some of the reasons why “The Motu” is Bora Bora’s ultimate wedding venue:
An exceptionally generous Mother Nature has blessed this site with a unique & totally stunning combination of beach & lagoon all backed by white sands, swaying palms & the soft sound of the ocean greeting the island’s distant protective coral reef. It is here that you will understand why Bora Bora, renowned for its incomparable beauty the world over, is regarded as paradise on earth.
The motu has it all – a sensational beach, the most stunning lagoon, the breathtaking backdrop of Bora Bora’s mountain-line including the mythical Mt Otemanu, sweeping views across to Raiatea & Tahaa………
This is a private island (motu). You are not just being located on another stretch of your resort; privacy is assured here.
The motu’s beach & ceremonial area is fully protected from the southerly winds (maraamu) that blow throughout the year especially during high season.
Add to this:
You are taken there over the world's most beautiful lagoon aboard a range of appropriately decorated private boats owned & operated by Manu Tours ensuring your security with fully licenced staff, properly maintained craft & appropriate insurance coverage.
Upon your arrival on the motu you will be greeted by the Tahua (Tahitian priest) & welcomed in traditional dance & song by a minimum of 3 musicians & 2 dancers accompanying the Tahua, all part of the totally professional, authentically Tahitian group Kolokani Entreprise.
Bora Bora’s leading professional photographer & videographer, Stephan Debelle, will advise you independantly concerning your photographic needs & accompany you at all times to get the best images.
Catering from gastronomic lunches to simple hors d'oeuvres & a full range of beveridges can be arranged by independant, specialist, qualified service providers.
Thatched-roofed, local architecture, timber structures on the island suitable in the case of inclement weather add to the ambience. There are, of course, appropriate sanitary facilities.
This is it:
If you are looking to celebrate your marriage in a Traditional Tahitian Wedding or a Traditional Renewal of Vows Ceremony, if you want to seal your commitment to a life-long love in the world’s most stunning & romantic setting then the “The Motu” is for you.
For those marrying earlier in a legal Civil Marriage at the Town Hall, the Traditional Tahitian Wedding on “The Motu” is the perfect option to celebrate in an emotional & romantic ceremony conducted in a location of rare beauty. The setting similarly lends to the most special of Renewal of Vows & Honeymoon Ceremonies.
