Breathtaking views of a blue sky and a tree-toped mountain. Crystal-clear lagoon. White sand beaches. At the Four Seasons Bora Bora, couples can find pure bliss in the form of a 5-Star resort. Whether it’s relaxing in the spa and steam room, unwinding with a couples massage, or bonding over cocktails at the Sunset Bar, there’s nowhere else like it in the world.
The Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora is a romantic retreat perfect for any wedding, honeymoon, or even proposal. This is why, on Tuesday, June 12, the world watched as the Real Housewives of Orange County’s Eddie Judge popped the question to Tamra Barney beneath a panorama of tropical paradise.
Let’s take a look of the particulars of their vacation-turned-engagement. The couple settled on the Four Seasons to enjoy a quiet, secluded vacation in an overwater bungalow. Such lodgings feature a wave-shaped pool, a spacious living area, and an outer deck perfect for privacy and relaxation.
While in Bora Bora, the couple partook in several island activities. Of the myriad options for guests to choose from—jet skiing, snorkeling, and even ATV tours—the resourceful Eddie determined that staying close to their bungalow and digging for oysters was the way to go.
And as it turns out, he made the perfect choice. The crowning jewel of the trip was Eddie’s clever idea to hide Tamra’s engagement ring inside an oyster. So, as the couple sat beneath a beaming sun with their toes in the rippling waves, Tamra came upon a most special oyster containing not a pearl but a promise for a happy ending.
This fairytale engagement wouldn’t have come to life without all the perfect little details needed to make the proposal a success. Set against a backdrop of pristine waters and blue sky that stretches for miles, Eddie’s choice of the Four Seasons Bora Bora made all the difference in the world. Tamra was so astonished when she opened the oyster and found the ring that she was actually rendered speechless for a moment following the proposal. “Yes!” she exclaimed. “If this isn’t a roadmap to a perfect wedding proposal then I don’t know what is!”
