VIP. Gilles Marini at the Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort and spa

Franco-American actor Gilles Marini, whose name is enough to send women all over the world in a trance, chose the Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort & Spa to celebrate his 15 years of marriage to Carole, and they brought their two children along !

And what better place to celebrate one's crystal wedding anniversary than the clear and shimmering waters of Bora Bora ? Gilles Marini recharged his batteries during 10 days, in the Pearl Beach's luxurious yet natural décor, enjoying the many pleasures that can be found on the "Pearl of the Pacific,' the legendary island of French Polynesia.
From the American dream…
Gilles Marini, born 37 years ago in the Provence town of Grasse to an Italian father and a Greek mother, has conquered America in a few short years. This former member of Paris' prestigious fire brigade first started his career in the United States as a model : spotted in a Budweiser commercial, he sets out for Hollywood. The studios welcome him and Gilles Marini appears in, among other series, in Ugly Betty, Nip/Tick, Criminal Minds, and above all Brothers and Sisters in which he portrays a recurring and much noticed character during two seasons. But the real turning point is the role of Dante in the movie Sex and the City, in which he plays Samantha's very naked lover. Who can ever forget the famous shower scene ? Twice, in 2009 and 2012, Gilles Marini participates in "Dance with the Stars" ; twice, he is a finalist in the competition, definitively consolidating his celebrity status for the greater audience, and becoming one of today's most lusted-after men on earth.
To the Polynesian dream
But Gilles Marini is not just Hollywood's new latin lover. He's also a man in love with his wife Carole, and a devoted father to his kids, Georges and Juliana. So when the time came to choose a destination for their 15th wedding anniversary, Gilles boarded the Los Angeles-Papeete direct flight with his gang. After a night and a foretaste of the sweet Tahitian life at the Manava Suite Resort Tahiti, they flew to Bora Bora, and the Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort & Spa for a fabulous vacation.
From the very first day of his stay, Gilles Marini couldn't resist the pleasure of sharing the many charms of Bora Bora with friends and fans. Every day Twitter and Facebook were lit up by Gilles' photos, and his comments echo the giddy happiness of our guests when they discover French Polynesia with the Pearl Beach resorts : "All ate breakfast by the ocean, went fishing with my son, kayaking with my daughter, then swam with sting rays and sharks ; even rode a nurse shark - yes I got it on video ;). Anyway what a day. Bora Bora is amazing!" Gilles even undertook and completed the climb up Mount Otemanu, Bora Bora's mythical mountain, to treat his faraway friends to one of the most beautiful panoramas in the world.
And intimacy
The Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort and Spa, which lends itself so well to a family vacation, is also the ideal place to celebrate love. Gilles and Carole could not have found a more beautiful setting for their crystal anniversary. Bungalows magically suspended over the turquoise lagoon, massages for two at Manea Spa, gourmet meals in the hotel's three restaurants or private dinner under the starry skies of the Southern hemisphere, attentive staff… In the peace of motu Tevairoa, just ten minutes away from the main island Gilles Marini, as many other famous guests before him, found a serenity that is hard to imagine when you're Hollywood's new leading man.
