My husband and I travelled to Bora Bora in April and made the best decision of staying at the St. Regis. It was absolutely divine. Our over water villa had a view of Mount Otemanu and I was in love! The water was absolutely beautiful and we moved our seats down to the porch to be closer to the water. The hotel is luxurious and everyone is very friendly and really want you to have a great time. We ate at all the restaurants and enjoyed everything (except for the sushi place which was unfortunately really horrible for us). As vegetarians, they were very accommodating and the food was 5 star. This was not just lettuce or veggies, it was real food! -- Basil corn ravioli, mushroom samosas, pizzas, sandwiches, salads, etc. Everything was a 4-5 course meal and it was all mouth watering. My husband recently turned vegetarian after being a carnivore for 30+ years and he was shocked at how good the food was. The breakfast buffet is phenomenal with made to order waffles, eggs, pancakes and pastries, fruit, breads, meat, cheese, rice, potatoes done several different ways, and lots of juice options. They also have made to order cafe drinks with soy milk available! You must try the banana bread with passion fruit syrup, it was so good.
We went with Pacific for Less (Claudia is amazing to work with) and had breakfast and dinner included which was a really good decision because food is expensive there. For ex. coconut water is $9! I got this daily and had a not so tasty one the second day which was promptly changed with no problems. Service really was impeccable. The rooms are large and very spacious. Depending on where you are, there may be a long walk to the main dining area and beach. We were in room 114 and the walk was 10 minutes or so. There are bikes you can get each morning but it's on a first come basis. You can leave your bikes at the villa after you're done and they get collected at 5. There is a spacious business center with 3 computers and tea/coffee/water. Internet is very expensive in the rooms. Activities wise, there is a lot of free stuff (parasailing, kayaking, etc.) which we enjoyed. We also did the jet skies which although expensive, (~$150 for a couple on 1 jet ski), was worth it. They take you around the entire island and stop mid way where you can water comes knee deep since this area used to be land 10 years ago. The whole excursion lasts about an hour and half so my husband and I got to switch multiple times. We also went to the city for pearl shopping and the hotel arranges the boat ride and bus trip. We stayed for 6 nights and had the time of our life. We can't wait to go back and will definitely recommend both Pacific for less and St. Regis Bora Bora with absolutely no hesitation. We had high standards and both exceeded our expectations.
