There are few places on the planet that compare to Bora Bora, the ultimate island retreat far from the cares of the rest of the world. When it comes to top-notch accommodations within this sought-after destination, discerning travelers flock to the St. Regis.
The five-star, 44-acre St. Regis Bora Bora effortlessly blends together its Polynesian surroundings with the brand’s signature service. There are several classes of rooms, the most popular of which are the iconic overwater villas with thatched roofs. Ranging in size from 1,500 square feet to 2,852 square feet, the overwater options feature exotic woods, marble, terraces and some are furnished with plunge pools. The larger oceanfront villas are even more glamorous and come in three categories.
If you’re looking for the best-of-the-best, the 9,000-square-foot Royal Estate is one of the most exclusive private retreats anywhere in the Pacific. The villa is made up of three separate pavilions revolving around a private pool and includes its own private spa. The facility has a treatment room, hammam, sauna and whirlpool. With three bedrooms, two living rooms, a spacious terrace, chef’s kitchen and dining room, this residence is in a class of its own.
Of course, water is the main attraction of this tropical locale. From the adults-only Oasis Pool with private cabanas to the central pool with a swim-up bar and the saltwater private lagoon, there are plenty of options for the keeping cool. Outside of the property, guests can participate in a number of activities including jet skiing, jeep safaris, shark and ray feeding, sailing, diving, hiking and the must-do sunset cocktail cruise.
Among the hotel’s five drinking and dining venues Te Pahu, inspired by Polynesian ingredients from both land and sea, offers an essential beachside dining experience. The Sushi Take restaurant features an tasty array of the fresh fish and inventive rolls. In the spirited tradition of Italian cuisine, Far Niente Ristorante serves up bold flavors accompanied by an equally impressive wine list, while LAGOON by Jean-Georges, perched above the water, boasts drop-dead views of Mount Otemanu.
The St. Regis Bora Bora's newly rebranded 13,000-square-foot Clarins Spa is on its own private island in the resort's lagoon and offers Polynesian, Asian and Clarins Touch treatments. Along with Ladies & Gentlemen changing areas, spa-goers can refresh in the facility’s saunas, steam rooms or whirlpools. Let’s face it, this is probably where you’ll want to spend most of your vacation.
Whether your time is spent relaxing poolside, getting massages at Clarins Spa or enjoying fresh fare at LAGOON, we have a feeling you won’t be disappointed. Plus, the St. Regis Butler Service means that if you’re ever in need of anything extra special, your wish is just a phone call away.
