We spent six amazing days at the St. Regis Bora Bora for our honeymoon. From the very moment we arrived at the Bora Bora airport until we left SRBB, we had one of the most wonderful experiences of our lives. I will briefly cover different aspects of our experience:
I want to extend the sincerest thanks to the SRBB staff, especially our amazing butler, Rani for providing us with the most attentive service and always with a smile. There is no task too big or small; all you had to do is ask and the staff will get it done promptly. This is the #1 reason that we will return to SRBB for our anniversary down the road.
All three restaurants were great. We had daily breakfast at Te Pahu included as part of our package. The breakfast offered a good variety of food. For our duration, it was perfect. However, if your stay is longer, it could become a little monotonous. Sushi Take was great. The sushi rolls were of good portion. Fish is fresh and of high quality. Lagoon Restaurant - as mentioned by others, you must book the table on the deck (6 pm reservation). The view is mesmerizing. Food and wines definitely live up to the hype. Service at all three restaurants was impeccable. You will see some of the same staff members at different restaurants on different shifts. They make a point to remember your name and greet you warmly each time.
Our bungalow was huge and very clean. The staff cleans the room twice a day, including a nightly turn down service. We were welcomed with a bottle of champagne and treats (lemon tarts & fruit jellies). The deck was very sizable. We loved jumping into the ocean from the plunge deck everyday. There were no fish swimming around our bungalow, although we did have frequent sightings of stingrays. I can't emphasize enough how amazing these bungalows are; you have to see them for yourself.
The property is vast, lush, and beautiful. You can get around by using the complimentary beach cruiser bikes, or call your butler to schedule a golf cart pickup. Walking is also an option if you just want to wander around and enjoy the scenery. The lagoonarium and the oasis pool are great spots to hangout. There are complimentary non-motorized beach equipment (kayaks, paddle boards, sailboat) you can use. The beach boys are always happy to assist you with the equipment and will even teach you how to sail. You can also borrow snorkels and fins for your excursions. You have access to free Internet at the business center, which is fantastic if you don't want to pay $30/day for in-room Wi-Fi.
Bora Bora is truly one of the most beautiful places on Earth. It is a must for honeymooners. St. Regis Bora Bora is where you'd want to stay. The property, the food, and the service are second to none. Thanks again SRBB for leaving us with the fondest memories!!
