The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We are a family of 5 - 2 adults and 3 teenagers. We rented the 2 bedroom bungalow over water. The room was spacious in terms of size compared to other 5* hotels in the area. The room was charming maybe dated in some places but that added to the charm. The room and private deck areas was almost 3500 sq ft with private swimming pool, lounge chairs and 2 outdoor tables outside of each bedroom with the living room in the center. The views are gorgeous even better than the pictures if that’s possible. There was a rainbow almost everyday. Even though the hotel was pretty full, you never felt crowded like in Hawaii. Grounds were so spread out it felt like there were just a few people sharing your very own private resort. There’s a lagoonarium with plenty of colorful fish and eels for you to snorkel. Lagoon beaches are beautiful. But what makes this hotel stand out is the service. We had the best service starting with the reservation supervisor Mata Papai on the phone. She provided great information on our upcoming trip and was just so friendly and helpful. The many chefs, servers and hosts during our many dinners at the hotel were so friendly and accommodating with our dietary needs. The general manager came over a few times to ask how everything was. We have stayed at many 5* hotels but this was a first for us. We noticed he greeted everyone. We felt so welcomed. Last but not least is our butler Sergey Petrov-Audbert who anticipated our every need during our trip. It was like having a personal assistant with you on vacation. We had a boating day scheduled to swim with sharks and rays. The night before the boat excursion, we came back from dinner to find he had prepared snorkel sets for all 5 of us all cleaned and laid out ready for us. He was up early to give us a ride to the gym, available with a phone call during the day and back with golf cart after dinner. Sergey really provided the best service and made this trip special for everyone in my family. When we think of our Bora Bora trip, we will remember the many wonderful and outstanding employees at the St. Regis Bora Bora.
We stayed at the St. Regis at the start of our two week 30th anniversary trip to French Polynesia and it was utterly magnificent. Our butler greeted us on arrival, gave us a full tour of the resort and even though we arrived quite early in the morning, was able to take us to our bungalow at the end. Because it was our 30th anniversary, there was a bottle of champagne on ice waiting for us, along with a lovely selection of macarons set in shredded coconut. The St. Regis bent over backwards to make our celebration very special. While we did not tell them exactly which day was our actual anniversary, later in our stay they brought us a lovely chocolate 'happy anniversary' cake. It was wonderful! Our bungalow faced the 'inner' side of things - we did not overlook the main island - and was spacious and lovely - a living room area, the bedroom, a large bath/shower/dressing area and of course the outdoor deck and covered outdoor pavillion. Heaven. The one oddity was the large but unenclosed shower area. There are a couple of glass areas in the floor - in the living area and in the bath/dressing room - so you can see through to the lagoon waters below. Alas, not much marine life - though a large spotted ray did come wandering lazily past at one point. you can easily swim and snorkel right off your bungalow. The water is deliciously warm - mid-80'sF - great for humans but not so good for coral. The resort is huge - there are a fairly plentiful supply of bikes to get around with, all older but serviceable in various sizes and heights. You can also call for an electric cart to bring you from place to place. While we were there the spa was closed for renovation, so my excellent massage was done in our bungalow for no additional charge. We're scuba divers and water rats so most days we were off-resort doing water sports: diving, snorkeling, jet skiing (my husband does not believe that vacationing equals 'doing nothing'). If you want to see the tropical fish but do not want to go off-property, the lagoon at the St. Regis has a beautiful array of fish, including a huge, gorgeous napoleon fish. Snorkel equipment 'rental' is free. Two of our nights we went over to the main island, once to La Villa Mahana (wonderful) and once to Bloody Mary's (just ok), the other nights we rotated through the restaurants on the resort, including the the Lagoon, the sushi/chinese place and the italian place. We did not find anything outstanding - overall the food was probably our least favorite part of our stay. As expected, it was very expensive - if you are shocked by the food and transportation prices here, you have not done your homework - but it was also not as tasty as hoped for. The staff seems genuinely thrilled to be there and many of them live in the onsite staff housing. We met many native French Polynesians, but also a selection of staff members from all over the world. Everyone greets guests warmly on every encounter. Service at the St. Regis is exceptional. Bora Bora is a bit like Venice: if you are staying away from the main island at one of the resorts on a Motu (outer barrier island), the only way to get around and get from and to the airport is by private boat and these do not come cheap. Still, speeding over the pure turquoise and sapphire waters of the lagoon is a treat in itself (try jetskiing!). The colors - lagoon, lush mountains, blue sky - are just breathtaking. We had thought this visit to a such a far flung part of the world would be a one-off - but we cannot wait to come back both to French Polynesia and to the St. Regis.
The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort in French Polynesia is one of the top worldwide hotels. The 44 acre property is superb, beautiful and serene. The service including the butler is professional and exceptional. The 2 bedroom over water villa with a private pool was beautifully designed and offered extraordinary views. For its beauty, comfort and service I highly recommend the St. Regis.
I'm now sure how to top the vacation to St. Regis Bora Bora. Everything was truly amazing. Our butler, Po, greeted us after landing at the dock and gave us a tour of the sprawling resort. When we got to our bungalow, it was hard to contain myself. It was large, very large, with a huge deck. Water temp at the time was near 90 degrees so it made jumping in easy. We enjoyed all of our meals at the resort. Breakfast was so delicious and we were warmly greeted by staff every day. Lunch was at the pool side bar - great burgers and tacos. Have the Bora for dessert! Dinner was a rotation between the on site restaurants as well as one night a Bloody Mary's on the main island. We took an off site snorkeling trip one day. Seeing the healthy coral was amazing. But, the resort's lagoon had as many fish as the ocean with so many colors. Worth spending time there.
Had the pleasure of staying at this amazing St. Regis. I’ve never had a disappointing stay at a St. Regis property. This location is gorgeous, the staff is extremely attentive. The villas are lovely regardless of whether you’re over the water or not. The private pool/ beach area is an extra special touch. Carmen and Arina have been very helpful planning all aspects of our stay. Would highly recommend taking this trip.
We just returned from a 5 night stay at St. Regis Bora Bora for our honeymoon. We were completely blown away by the beauty of the resort, phenomenal rooms (OWB, although the other rooms looked to have character as well), amazing food, & impeccable service. We never had a butler before and consider ourselves pretty independent. Our butler, Guilio, was so friendly and helpful, it was truly a pleasure to see him each time & I'm convinced he's the best butler anywhere. He set us up with dinner at the 3 restaurants on the resort, which were all incredibly delicious. Like many couples, we debated between here and the Four Seasons. One night we picked a couple at Four Seasons for an excursion and asked them about their stay. The resort is big, like St Regis, but they do not offer bikes like the St Regis does, so it's more difficult to get around. Overall, I'm so glad we chose the St. Regis as it was utter perfection!
We initially booked a stay at Four Seasons with our travel agent, but then learned they would be doing major renovations. We decided to switch to the St Regis. We are so happy we did. On a snorkel tour where we picked up other tourists at other hotels, I can confidently say that the location of the St Regis definitely provides the very best views of Mount Otemanu. The service we experienced was second to none, and worth every penny of this splurge trip and more. The service you will receive here is what will definitely set this place apart from others. Our butler, Guilio, welcomed us gave us a tour of the resort. He gave the best insider tips: the best spots for pictures, the best spots to claim at the pool and spa, the best dish to get at dinner. He confirmed all our excursions and dinner reservations. All the butlers that drove us around this huge resort and delivered coffee to our bungalow every morning were very pleasant and helpful. Finally, I have to say THANK YOU to one of the “Beach Boys” who I had asked to look for my sunglasses that I lost after capsizing from my paddle board during our windy last day. I thought they were gone for good! But when we were on the boat at sunset already half way to the airport we looked back and there he was in a jet ski, chasing our boat down! He personally handed me the sunglasses that I had lost earlier that morning. That is top notch service, and it’s people like him, Giulio and all the other excellent staff that ensures we will definitely return to this special place.
The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort is absolutely incredible. There are no words to describe the beauty of Tahiti and the staff there was wonderful. I cannot thank Venture Tahiti enough for helping us book the most incredible experience of our lives!! We plan on bringing our children there very soon!
We just returned from the St Regis, and we love this resort. This was our second stay at this resort and it is hands down the best resort in Borabora. We want to thank Claudia and her team from Pacific for Less for taking care of our itinerary in French Polynesia, we visited 4 islands and they did an excellent job of taking care of all our needs and interests. I highly recommend Claudia for your Tahitian Vacation.
St Regis was everything we had hoped for and more . All meals were good except for one all employees went out of there way to provide excellent services we booked our trip through Pacific4Less which made everything a breeze you can't go wrong wrong with this team ! I had stayed at Four Seasons on previous trip and while it was great I would go back to st Regis
