Aussies Fall In Love with New Caledonia, Despite Bachie Stitch-Up

If you, like us, are still completely frazzled by the Bachelor finale last week then you’ll be happy to know there was one love story that didn’t go up in flames.

You may have noticed the setting for the last episode was much more picturesque than the usual Bachelor mansion and various Sydney side locations featured in the show, and that’s because it was filmed in the stunning French paradise in the South Pacific that is New Caledonia!

And we are IN LOVE with this beautiful location.

Director of New Caledonia Tourism in Australia, Caroline Brunel, said The Bachelor Australiawas the perfect way to highlight the natural beauty, warm hospitality and unique blend of French and Melanesian culture that make New Caledonia the ultimate setting for a romantic escape.

“No matter the outcome of the final rose ceremony, I have no doubt that after seeing the luxurious Sheraton New Caledonia Deva Spa & Golf Resort, the views over the UNESCO World Heritage-listed lagoon and barrier reef, the magnificent sunsets and picturesque beaches – that Australians will fall in love with New Caledonia,” said Brunel.

If you’d like to plan your own special little rose ceremony with your significant other (or otherS in true Bachelor fashion, we won’t judge) you can check out this dedicated page from New Caledonia Tourism highlighting some sensational romantic itineraries.
