Babymoon Travel Diary | Bora Bora, French Polynesia

The end of an era

Celebrating every milestone to the fullest is becoming more of a norm than a novelty these days. Me, being the perpetually extra person that I am, have absolutely no complaints about this new age of gender reveals, babymoons, and push presents! Waseem and I have traveled quite a bit since getting married four years ago but a dream babymoon was something I just had to have IRL. The era of just us was coming to an end and we needed one last hurrah before two became three.

Haha yes, I plagiarized myself & my Babymoon Essentials post (shh!) but I put my sentiments into words a little too perfectly there and I blame my new-mommy brain mush for being unwilling to write up a new intro.

Bora Bora has been on my bucketlist for years and I had my heart absolutely set on it being our babymoon destination – I refused to even think of a back-up. When I know what I want, I just have to have it! I wanted a relaxing, exotic, & obviously Zika-free vacation and I wanted to stay in an over-water bungalow. This pretty much narrowed it down to French Polynesia. At first thought, French Polynesia sounds worlds away like the Maldives but for us west-coasters it’s such a unexpectedly easy destination! Our direct flight from LA to Tahiti was only 8 hours and then we had a short transit to Bora Bora. I traveled pretty frequently pre-baby so 8 hours is nothing compared to some of the long hauls I’ve been on! 8 hours is a couple movies and a nap lol its literally like traveling from NY to London but without the jetlag! French Polynesia is only 3 hours behind LA (same time zone as Hawaii!!) so this really allowed us to maximize our mornings (I’m not a morning person usually!). With sunset being pretty early in Bora Bora, we didn’t feel like we were wasting our trip by going to bed “early” either! We pretty much binge watched Jane the Virgin as I planned our baby shower every night haha and were up around sunrise to seize the day!

Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora

There are only 12 resorts in Bora Bora and a few other small-scale lodgings, with the cream of the crop being the Four Seasons – duh! I’ve stayed at several Four Seasons properties all around the world and was excited to get the FS experience in Bora Bora which did not disappoint. Upon landing at Bora Bora Airport we were welcomed by Four Seasons’ staff and they adorned us with beautiful, fragrant flower leis while we waited for our bags… and we were off to the resort! Our private transfer on their super stylish vintage looking boat (check my insta-story below!) was extra extra private as we were the only FS guests arriving at that time :)

The experience starts immediately from there, we were given drinks and cool towels to freshen up as we cruised the most gorgeous turquoise water to the resort. Our flight from Tahiti was pretty early so our room wasn’t ready upon arrival but there were plenty of facilities for us to freshen up in and we were able to catch our breakfast buffet before starting our day! I am not a breakfast person at all but really loved their buffet which also had made to order omelets and crepes. We took a dip in the lagoon after breakfast and our room was ready before we knew it! Like most resorts, there were golf carts ready to shuttle us around and I loved that we never had to wait long for one after calling. I was 31 weeks pregnant so walking definitely wasn’t on the agenda especially in that heat lol! Speaking of being pregnant.. everyone was extra nice and pampering with me, always making sure I was comfortable, hydrated, and they even had a pregnancy pillow waiting for me in our room – so beyond thoughtful! Everyone remembered us by name everywhere we went, from the lobby to any of the four restaurants — details like this always leave a lasting warm impression for me. We ate at all of the restaurants and ordered room service a few times.. everything was so yummy! I was a little nervous about the food since we’d essentially be stuck at the resort, but luckily everything was a win! You have to grab a bite or drinks at Sunset Bar during sunset (duh!), the view is beyond stunning!! You’ll catch it in my insta-story below.

We stayed in a one-bedroom beach view overwater bungalow and it was simply amazing. I really wanted a mountain-view suite but they were at capacity and my dates weren’t flexible womp womp.. but I can’t imagine any view in Bora Bora is a bad one! Our deck was private so I was able to comfortably lay out and Waseem loved jumping off into the lagoon every morning! Every section of our suite had french doors opening to our deck giving us the most stunning views – from the living room, tub, and bedroom! The deck was ready for us with two lounge chairs, a dining table + chairs, and a chest filled with life jackets and snorkeling equipment. The resort offers tons of activities and off-property excursions but being as heavily pregnant as I was, we maximized our time at our own pace on the beach, snorkeling in the lagoon, & hanging out in our bungalow. The most amazing thing about these over-water bungalows is that you literally don’t have to leave. It was an experience like no other and I’m already dying to visit again – with baby Iya this time!

Thank you Four Seasons Bora Bora for hosting us and making sure we had the babymoon of our dreams! xo

    Irene, you are such an amazing photographer! The way you capture details and simply all of your shots is beyond beautiful. I hope to become just as good some day! Thank you for always sharing your experiences. Your family is flawless. I wish you all the very best and can’t wait to see your future blogs/posts. You are truly an inspiration.

    I have a canon 6D, I am looking for a very good walk around lens. One that can capture both portraits and wide landscapes, etc.

    Do you mind sharing if your using more than one lens to capture these shots? Or do you have one go to lens? I know you have a section on photography but I didn’t see too much on lenses. Please share.

    Thank you for the great read!!!

    Wow mashallah, these pictures are absolutely stunning and the colors are vivid. A destination on my bucket list would definitely be Tokyo, Japan. Especially in the spring when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom and I don’t want to be a typical brown person who’s too afraid to try any of the foods or take part in the Japanese culture. I’d like to try the foods (maybe not the squid or octopus though) and I’d love to visit the sacred temples. I’d also like to go to Cuba which I feel like your hubby would like since I feel like he could rock the Cuban style and pose next to the retro cars. I’d love to see those photos on your blog inshallah. My Instagram at @waaltaee I’d love to try new makeup but homegirl cannot afford to spend one more dollar on makeup ☹️😂

    Irene, I have been following you and Waseem’s journey for 3 years now (not in the stalkerish way I swear lol) and I honestly feel so lucky to have witnessed you bloom into such an inspirational woman. Iya is incredibly blessed to have a mother like you!
    Your makeup tutorials, Snapchat stories, product reviews, flawless Instagram posts, great comebacks that I can’t even think of, relationship with Waseem and your followers, as well as all your travels have become a part of my life. I really mean this from the bottom of my heart when I say you two are amazing influencers, especially for us brown people lmao.
    May Allah bless you, Waseem, and baby Iya with health, happiness, and all the best things in life Ameen. Oh and:

    Hey Irene,
    Just wanted to say that being a Bengali girl myself, it truly is inspiring to see how you’ve managed to break down barriers and project your true, authentic self to the world. I’m sure you’re aware of the competition that’s within our society whether it being job or education related, and the fact that you were able to built this career for yourself and prove to other Bangali girls that they are capable of achieving anything they set their mind to is beautiful. You give us South Asian girls the confidence that we don’t have to care about “what people will say”; being true to ourselves and perusing what we’re passionate towards is possible and always within our reach.

    Thank you for being you and a massive congratulations to you and your husband on your baby girl! ❤

    Our due dates were only a few weeks apart. When I found out that you delivered a few weeks earlier than anticipated, I was freaking out. I hadn’t prepped anything and I saw your post where you had mentioned how you weren’t ready for the baby at all. Lol. I literally got my hospital bag ready the next day, car seat base installed, got all the essentials ready for the baby. My baby came exactly on her due date but thank you for pushing me to do everything ahead of time. It was such a relief towards the end knowing that I didn’t have to do anything if I do end up going in a spontaneous labor 😘😘😘

    Loved reading this baby moon post! You are SO beautiful and I am seriously so so so so happy for you and Waseem and wish you the best in your new beginning with Iya. I have been following you for a couple years now and it has been so amazing to see you grow in your career/life. I always look forward to your makeup tutorials and makeup posts because your glam is always perfect & flawless! There are few beauty gurus out there who are genuine and unique- Whenever you come out with a youtube video (missing your frequent posts BTW) I seriously drop everything and watch! But my appreciation for you doesn’t just extend to your makeup skills- You are such an inspiration to a lot of desi girls out there, especially to ones who are learning to fight against the backward culture that is so ingrained in a lot of our parents’ attitudes and beliefs. Keep fighting & doing ya thang girl- you are seriously so strong and it helps the rest of us move forward as well :)
    May Allah SWT bless you and your family with happiness iA

It wasn’t until 5 years ago while 2am YouTube surfing that I found you Irean !! And there’s no looking back. I love your story, style Independence and confidence it’s truly inspiring. I follow you on every social media outlet and rave to my peeps to do so too.
    Alhamdulillah after many years of trying me and my hubby are expecting our 1st baby in the fall. Your blogs and post have definitely helped me in keep fab during my bumpy days.

    I absolutely love all your travel vlogs and blog posts and I cannot express how happy I am for you now that you have your own little family, which I know is something you have always wanted! In sha Allah your family is given many many blessings and Iya grows up beautifully and healthily.

    I’m being 100% honest when I say that you are one of, if not my favourite youtuber because the quality of your videos are always very good and its quite clear how much effort you put into making them a very good standard. I also admire how you respond to hate comments and don’t let people say shit and get away with it, nor do you feel the need to insult them. Instead you deal with it in a mature way, calmly explaining yourself :)

    As I’ve said, I enjoy your videos and in sha Allah you do many more in the future, gaining the recognition and success you deserve, not only as a youtuber but also as an incredibly ambitious and self-confident woman! Love you xx

I remember first discovering you on rate desi over a decade ago (LOL). I met you at a wedding shortly after and have been following you ever since! I have watched you turn into the amazing woman you have become today. Motherhood is the toughest job out there but in turn we get the greatest reward from it. Heaven is under a mother’s foot for a reason. This is a hard time but I promise it gets easier ( I have a toddler so I was where you were not too long ago). Anyways, thanks for always sharing.

    You are hands down one of my favorite bloggers! I love your aesthetic and amazing photography! You, Waseem and Iya are incredibly blessed. I love to see your progression and inclusion in the influencer community. Desi women (myself included) have a great model to go to in you, when looking for new products! Thank you for that!

    Bora Bora is definitely on my bucket list because of you!

    Hi Irene, we all love you otherwise we shouldnt be here to write something. So I just wanted to tell you that I admire you for simply being you! You are a big inspiration to everyone and you are my favourite blogger because you are keeping it real. I love when you share your opinion on snapchat and what I love the most is that you drive to starbucks in your pyjamas – or even while having a face mask on! You are beyond beautiful and hilarious, perfect combo 200%!! I wish I would be like this one day too! :-) And btw, I feel sooo happy for you, that you’ve finally been blessed to become a mom, I’m sure the wait has been worth it and Iya is the cutest, she is definetly the luckiest girl in the world to have a mommey like you! Enjoy the most time with her as you can and just stay how you are – you are fabulous!! :)

    After this post I sure would love to travel to Bora Bora. But since I live in Europe I feel like It’s way too far to just go on vacation. I would probably plan it a a big vacation for some celebration. Maybe a honeymoon? Or a babymoon haha😄 Other than that I still have Italy, Greece and possibly California(tbh the Trump-era scares me from visting the states a little) to visit inshallah. Also I just wanted to tell you how amazing your pictures are from this trip and how amazing you looked on here and throughout your pregnancy Mashallah! That golden dress is so beautiful💕

    Hi Irene! Let me just say that i am one of you biggest fan! From you pictures to your tutorials to the blogs. EVERYTHING. Funny how i get so excited every time u post something new.

    I was reading ur IG story right now. I definitely feel you girl! First time mom here as well. I remember when you had made it social media official you was expecting i got so excited because i was as well. Then i got even more excited because we both were having girls! I know urs came in a little earlier, mine was born on her due dute, july 23rd. My little one has a far away friend that maybe she’ll never meet but through social media she will lol i totally feel you right now, my baby is being fuzzy atm, currently 4:24 am here in Houston, but she refuses to fall asleep in her crib. She wants to be cuddled by mommy. Im so tired, which is why i gave up on her and decided to write a little something out for you lol not sure if you get to my comment but if you do, dont really matter if i win, i will feel so special if you get to read this. Us, true followers get excited when we get noticed by our favorite youtubers lol

    Well baby started crying now , first time mommy duty calls. Im sure you so relate 💗 I wish you the best with your little family, and thank you for just being yourself 😊

    The pictures are absolutely beautiful and your choice of style complimented the views of Bora Bora. Being extra is great and haha loved how you expressed that as a heads up in the first part of the blog. I also appreciated the written detail of your stay and reflection through the Instagram video.

    One destination I would love to go is Maldives. Have to make sure it’s Zika-free though before I head out there.

    Wish you and your husband a happier life. Also a safe and smooth delivery process for you.

    God bless you both.

    Wow. These photos are sooo beautiful! I saw what you mentioned about Godaddy! How annoying ! The same thing happened to me & I had to completely restart after shelling out so much to design my blog. Not to mention how unhelpful they were. Anyway I’ve always enjoyed watching your YouTube because you created a business to live off of something I’ve always dreamed of doing. Not to mention you’re a woman of color who only brings such positive to us! Plus your Travel photos are so inspiring, hopefully one day I can travel to Bora Bora too. Looks beautiful. Sending blessings to you and your family! ✨🌹💛 my IG: @krie.baby

    Hey Irene,

    I wanted to reach out to you to thank you for keeping it real. As a fellow Desi woman, I faced a lot of discrimination growing up in an area which was predominantly non-Indian. Going to school became the biggest challenge for me on a daily basis. Regardless, I never felt ashamed of my culture.
    In this harsh world we live in today, it is difficult to prove our worth however you have become this inspiration to South Asian women everywhere that “you can do IT!” That being said, I wanted to also say that like so many others, I have followed you and Waseem from the time of your marriage and really admire you both as a couple! You both are hard-working as individuals and as a team and have now brought your beautiful baby girl into this world! I’m sure she will understand one day that she is truly blesses to have such amazing parents! Each of your pictures represent the essence of true beauty which you both possess!

    As a new mom myself of a nine month-old I understand the difficulties and beauty of motherhood! Embrace every moment you have with Iya! Take tons of pics as these are the best days of your life!

    Lots of love,
    Nidhi
