Our concierge team has extensive experience in planning ceremonies in traditional Maohi fashion, and boasts a wealth of both local and international knowledge to assist you in planning the wedding of your dreams.
For a traditional wedding ceremony, choose between the Moana Intimate Blessing and the Moana Royal, which is a larger-scale Tahitian-style wedding. Our concierge team is also at your disposal to help you with planning your civil ceremony on the island of Bora Bora.
The Moana Intimate Blessing
Moana Intimate is a small Tahitian wedding ceremony taking place on the deck of Le Moana, where a Tahitian priest will conduct the ceremony along with a traditional band.
We symbolically use mother-ocean water and our sacred conch shell to purify your union. A “tifaifai”, which is a Tahitian wrap-around, is also used to link your marriage in the traditional way.
At the end of the ceremony, you will be escorted to your bungalow in music where your bottle of champagne and your wedding cake will be at disposal.
The Moana Royal
The Moana Royal ceremony is your grand Tahitian wedding. A musician will escort you to an authentic Tahitian priest who will celebrate your union along with a traditional band.
Deep sea water is symbolically used for its purifying property, as well as a Tahitian patchwork called “tifaifai” to wrap you in order to unite your couple in the royal traditional way.
Tahitian dancers will perform and you will be able to enjoy their show in comfortable chairs. As the celebration goes on, a bottle of champagne and your wedding cake will be delivered to your bungalow to enjoy after the ceremony with a setup of romantic flowers on your bed.
