The name St. Regis evokes an air of elegance, luxury and superior service, and the St. Regis Bora Bora is certainly no exception. You can’t escape the island’s stunning views from any part of the resort; whether you’re relaxing in your oceanfront villa, drinking a cocktail at the Lagoon Restaurant or getting pampered at the serene Miri Miri Spa.
Regardless of which room class you choose, each private villa comes with direct access to a white sand beach, private pool or private garden. The beds are draped in soft, white linens surrounded by rich wood floors and nature-inspired accents, giving it a modern island vibe. All villas come standard with a 42-inch plasma television, Bose DVD/CD player, outdoor shower, hairdryer, mini bar, espresso/coffee machine, personal safe, nightly turndown service, daily maid service and 24-hour room service.
A stay at the St. Regis wouldn’t be the same, however, without their signature Butler Service, which they have been offering to their valued guests for more than 100 years.
From finding a gift to take back home, to unpacking your suitcase, to preparing your morning coffee, no request is unattainable for the eager to please butlers. Wherever you are your needs can always be met, as the butlers are also reachable any time of day or night via e-mail.
The list of activities at the resort is seemingly endless. You can explore Bora Bora’s natural beauty and see all of its breathtaking scenery by land, air or water. Take the Pahia Mount guided tour through lush foliage and local fruit trees. It is the most difficult hike offered, but awards you with a spectacular 340-degree view from the top, making all the hard work worth it. Or maybe you wish to fly high above the crystal, clear water through the cloudless sky during a parasailing adventure. You can choose to soar solo, with another guest or arrange for a private session.
Of course, water activities are in abundance on the resort with everything from deep sea fishing, to kite surfing, to an aqua safari to keep you busy splashing around. A great way to immerse yourself in the local culture is to take the Polynesian Island Private Tour.
This six- hour, once-in-a-lifetime experience will have you busy snorkeling, discovering a variety of underwater life and feeding sharks and sting rays. Afterward kick back and enjoy a feast of the freshest local lobster, fish and meat, all while sipping a glass of chilled Champagne.
You don’t want to leave the resort without indulging in a luxurious spa treatment at the Miri Miri Spa. The 50- or 80- minute “Taurumi” Polynesian Massage brings a touch of the French Polynesian spirit and is complete with a coffee volcanic foot scrub to invigorate and calm the body. Or try the Illuminating Pearl Facial pairing natural ingredients with enriched pearl powder to leave your skin glowing and deeply hydrated. Whatever treatment you end up choosing, it’ll undoubtedly leave you feeling like a whole new you from head to toe.
This resort perfectly combines a laid back island feel with the highest caliber service and accommodations, making for a truly magical stay. You’ll explore the sights and sounds, have every need anticipated and eat like a king. The St. Regis Bora Bora will blur the lines between reality and fantasy and keep you coming back for more.
