New Caledonia is the perfect place to celebrate your love, no matter what that might mean to you! The food, arts and culture of France is there, plus there are heaps of great island activities to enjoy. Snorkel, dive, hike and explore; ride horses through the mountains; discover traditional villages, rainforests and waterfalls and do it all from a luxury base!

The resorts in New Caledonia are beautiful and have everything you need to enjoy a little, or a lot of romance. Sip champagne by the pool, dine in exquisite restaurants or indulge in couple’s treatments at the spa.
