The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort

A favourite destination of discerning travelers, the islands of Bora Bora have long attracted visitors in search of the world’s most luxurious and private accommodations, majestic views and, according to author James Michener, “the most beautiful lagoon in the world”. The opening of The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort in June 2006 marked the legendary brand’s first resort in French Polynesia and introduced an unrivalled dimension of luxury and hospitality to the South Pacific.   The magnificent 44-acre property offers the most sumptuous accommodation in the region combined with St. Regis’ personalised services and amenities, including 24-hour concierge, room service and the  renowned St. Regis Butler Service. Featuring 100 exquisitely designed over-water and beach villas, many with terrace whirlpools or private swimming pools, the one-, two- and three-bedroom villas range in size from 1,550 square feet to the resort’s ultra-luxurious 13,000-square-foot Royal Estate, fittingly set apart in a secluded cove.   The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort’s magnificent accommodations showcase exotic woods and regional art and pamper guests with private outdoor showers, Pratesi linens and Acqua di Parma amenities.   Guests also enjoy 42-inch plasma televisions, Bose DVD/CD players and high-speed Internet throughout their villas. The resort features a number of firsts for French Polynesia, including five over-water villas with private swimming pools suspended over the lagoon, two secluded beach villas with access to a private helicopter pad and the unmatched Royal Estate, the largest and most luxurious villa in the South Seas.   Guests of the resort will enjoy three world-class restaurants, including Lagoon, the resort’s signature over-water restaurant by Jean-Georges, as well as Sushi Take, French Polynesia’s first sushi restaurant.   Spa Miri Miri, the 13,000-square-foot world-class spa is located on its own island in the lagoon, accessible by a foot-bridge, and features Tahitian and Pacific Rim treatments in seven treatment rooms.   The use of natural herbs and extracts from the island will create an unforgettably sensual experience. Set amidst lush unspoiled surroundings and pristine waters, guests enjoy spectacular views of the main island of Bora Bora as well as the mystical Mount Otemanu, towering over the Pacific Ocean, with the remote islands of Tahaa and Raiatea on the horizon.

  1. The Over-water bungalows with plunge pools are supreme. The Four Seasons in Bora Bora has them as well, and the clients I place at either on of these resorts end up very happy. Good service is a luxury in it’s own right, and you are correct about finding it here at the St. Regis.
