The St Regis Bora Bora deserves mention among the world’s best luxury beach resorts. Set on the northeastern side of Bora Bora’s picturesque lagoon, this upscale retreat certainly enjoys a privileged location in paradise. Things only get better when you also consider the alluring guest units, the excellent facilities, and the astute attention to service. Guests can even call on butlers should their hearts desire, and a knowledgeable concierge is available around the clock to help with such things as business requests and planning fun excursions.
Discerning travelers who are interested in booking a stay at one of the upscale Tahiti hotels are encouraged to expand their horizons and give the St Regis Bora Bora a look as well. Less than 150 miles separates Tahiti from Bora Bora, after all, and this St Regis resort par excellence can definitely make for a great regional travel base. When St Regis Bora Bora guests aren’t relaxing in their posh quarters, they can kick back at the beach side bar, go snorkeling in the resort’s private lagoon, relax in a secluded cabana at the adults-only pool, or enjoy a workout at the well-equipped fitness center. Other options for things to do at this divine retreat include playing tennis, dining at one of three inviting restaurants, and rejuvenating both mind and soul at the Miri Miri Spa.
As is true of other spa resorts in Bora Bora, the St Regis can be a fine place to relax and indulge in some pampered bliss. It isn’t all about relaxing and getting pampered at this divine retreat, however. All kinds of fun activities can be enjoyed either on the grounds or outside of the resort. Those activities that can be enjoyed on the outside include hiking, jet skiing, taking a jeep safari, going on a sunset cruise, and scuba diving. The possibilities don’t end there, and St Regis Bora Bora guests should have little trouble arranging activities through the concierge or at the resort’s convenient activity desk.

The St Regis Bora Bora has been getting plenty of attention on the international front since it opened on Motu Omee in 2007.

As far as decor is concerned, each of the St Regis Bora Bora guest units exhibits plenty of French Polynesian elegance. In relation to amenities, those that come standard include individual air conditioning, a DVD/CD player, two plasma TVs, a stocked mini bar, a safe, and a coffee maker.
