The hype is real. Everything is amazing here. The rooms. The service. The amenities...the list goes on. They even give you bikes to bike around the resort since it is quite big. They really did think of everything.

This was our second visit to the St. Regis Bora Bora on our 4th visit to BB. We loved it the first time, but had an even better visit this time. We always use Pacific for Less for our travel to BB. We travel a lot, and always book ourselves, but when we go to BB we always use Pacific for Less. Claudia, Monika, Jeanna and everyone else there work tirelessly to create a VIP experience due to their extensive connections in French Polynesia. We took advantage of a fantastic deal that included upgraded accommodations and meals at a price we couldn't pass up. Traveling here during the Covid was so awesome. Once we overcame the stress of having a negative test prior to departure, everything was fantastic just based on the fact that there were so few people. The plane was relatively empty so we could stretch out. Once we got to the resort, there were also very few people. We felt like we had the place to ourselves. The service was amazingly personal. We stayed in an island view OW villa, our second time in this villa class. They appeared to have been updated and refreshed since our last visit so no one can complain that they are tired anymore. The meals at all the restaurants were incredible, and not just because they were included. The only issue during the whole trip was the change in US policy requiring a negative Covid test prior to arrival from an international flight. FP required a test during our stay, but the US government wouldn't accept it because it was a self test. Then there was no system in place to get people tested prior to their late international flights at the airport. Their testing center closed too early to accommodate most passengers requiring a lot of last minute juggling of itineraries. Thank goodness for Pacific for Less. Claudia was communicating with us constantly and got us out of there early enough to get our tests. Don't know what we would have done without them.

We stayed at the St Regis Bora Bora for 5 nights in February 2021 right as the French government closed the islands to tourist. We booked our trip through Lisa Corso and Tahiti Legends. Lisa was amazing to deal with throughout the entire process. She is knowledgable about the islands and we stayed a total of 10 nights--5 here and 5 prior at Le Taha'a resort (see review). Both were amazing resorts, but nothing compares to the St Regis in Bora Bora and all of its beauty. The resort is huge and due to COVID closure there were only 24 couples which was like having the resort to yourself. There were times we saw only 1 or 2 other couples during the day and had the beach to ourselves. The rooms are extremely large and well appointed. We had a slight view of Bora Bora which was an "upgrade" from the lagoon view. However, the lagoon view is amazing and I doubt there is a bad room on the entire resort. We had breakfast and dinner included in our package which was nice and I couldn't imagine having to pay for dinner every evening as with drinks/wine I figured would be around $300+ nightly. Lunch with drinks which we had to pay for was never less than $100. We knew this going into it but if you can get the package with breakfast and dinner. Due to lack of people only 1 out of 4 restaurants were open for dinner. This really wasn't a problem as the food was incredible at both restaurants. It would have been nice to try the others but completely understandable due to the lack of people staying. Our breakfast and lunch at the beach bar was also delicious. The St Regis butler service was nice and Ida was amazing and took care of anything we needed! We also had a couples massage which was incredible and the view of Bora Bora from the spa grounds is out of this world (attached). We did do a full day excursion around the island which was nice as we got to see the entire island, swim with sharks, stingrays, and manta rays and had a wonderful BBQ lunch. We also took the boat shuttle into town where we were able to pick up some water, beer, wine, and snacks to save us some money during our stay. We have traveled to over 10+ Caribbean islands and the St Regis Bora Bora is by far the most beautiful place we have been. If you are booking check out Lisa Corso with Tahiti Legends as she did an amazing job in making this an incredible 25th anniversary trip! Thanks St Regis and Lisa and we already wish we could return!

During recent COVID lockdown and sudden border closure we had the resort to ourselves .... does not get better than that! Staff, rooms, resort, amenities absolutely everything is 100% first class. Location is ideal for bora bora. Did the jet ski tour around the lagoon.. a must do! Scuba lovely, lots of fish and nice corals.

I dont even know how and where to begin this review or if this review will give justice to my experience in this resort. Let me just start with saying, if you need to treat yourself with the ultimate indulgence and pampering and you can afford it, I highly recommend this place. Been to the Maldives, Palawan, Boracay etc but wanted to complete my roundup of the best beaches in the world. The St Regis was a distant dream until a great deal came by. It also helped that the Le Meridien was closed for renovation so being a Marriott Platinum Member, I had no choice. I decided to book for 8 nights but ended up with 10, that’s how impressed I was with this property. I have traveled all over the world and have stayed in the finest and most luxurious properties both domestic and international. A 5 star property is expected to operate and deliver at the highest standards in all aspects. These properties come with a high price tag thus expectations rightfully come from highly critical and discerning eye. All these years, the Peninsula Hotels in Asia have taken the top spot in my list it hasn’t been equaled or surpassed till now. StR truly gets the rare and coveted 5 star rating in my book even if it did not fully meet my first and foremost requirement when going to a beach resort… the beach/lagoon which I will elaborate later. What catapulted this property to a perfect rating is the service… Polished, Personal and Impeccable. Lets start with the initial communication via email. I am the most detailed oriented person that you will ever meet. When I travel far and expensive, I do extreme due diligence so email communication is key, in fact, I don’t care how well reviewed and how beautiful a property is, if I don’t feel comfortable with this initial phase, it’s a NO GO. Corentin Baron was the guest liaison that I communicated with for a few weeks to get all the information I needed to make a decision. Corentin provided clear, accurate, detailed and honest feedback that set me off to a great start. I came here mid August 2020 because I needed sun, tan and beach. Yes I literally lay out in the beach from sunrise to sundown, that’s why beach quality is extremely high in my list. The sun was not out every single day which was a bummer for me as I am a sun worshipper. There were moments of clouds every day and on some days rain (half a day at most). One thing you need to be prepared for around this time of year is WIND… lets just say I have a few belongings blown into the open water from my over the water villa. I don’t think you will ever get the perfect weather here in terms of full sun throughout your entire stay. Some locals say April and May might be the sunniest but it changes every year. The demographic here are 80% Americans so it can be loud at times as we are known to be loud mouths in general. This is why I prefer the Maldives in terms of quiet. April would be the month with the least kids. On my last day, a group of 20 Americans checked in and ruined the resort. I was going to extend another few days but the crass, obnoxious and ill-mannered group made the decision for me. There were complaints from so many guests and some guests even transferred to the 4 seasons. Im not sure if the docs we signed upon check in include the ability of the resort to kick out fools like these especially if it is creating a huge disturbance to the majority of the guests and the staff. It’s a rare case as one staff told me but I think the StR need to be prepared to give ultimatums to nip it. Some of us really saved up our hard earned income for a once in a lifetime vacation like this this. When I arrived I met my butler Paul. I can sum up his service in one word EXCELLENT! He was there to address my needs throughout my entire stay. My original reservation was for a reef side villa but I was upgraded to an OTW villa and ended up at 208. The villa was huge! It would easily fit 4 or more people but they only provide one king bed. I think 3 is the max. There’s a small cooler (not fridge). I was worried I was going to spend a ton on water since I drink lots of it but Paul made sure im stocked and never thirsty. The villa is a bit aging but still holds its timeless elegance. I like how this is farther away from the common areas so I can have the peace and privacy that I need. I also like how the balcony is designed so you can have areas of privacy in case you want to do some nude sunbathing. This villa has a good sun exposure maybe till 3pm and then after that I head to the beach. Villas are less than 20 feet apart pray you don’t have noisy screaming or smoking neighbors because you will sense all those. No sound of waves as you lay silently in your villa and beware of the current if you are not good swimmer. I jumped out of the villa and was swept 10 feet away in just a matter of seconds it was also deep. Because of this, I end up going to the beach to get my salt water soak and swim. My ideal beach means crystal clear water, fine powdery white sand with minimal rocks and dead corals (no footwear required), gentle sloping beach with mild waves that will allow even a novice swimmer to venture farther from the shore. StR beach is not ALL THAT, the water was crystal clear and clean but the sand is not powder soft throughout, there are a lot of areas where you hit broken corals, small rocks so you just have to tiptoe your way around. Nothing to do with StR but the natural landscape of the area. The service from the beach boys especially Tiko, Ari (King) and Reuben were spotless. They made sure to put me in a quiet secluded spot where I can have my SERENITY and checks on me from time to time to make sure my needs are met. They even had someone go up the coconut tree to get me fresh coconut water, now that’s service extraordinary. The food is where the Str falls a bit short. I only had one memorable meal and that was at the lagoon restaurant which is their most expensive. Breakfast was great, it was not buffet but you can order to your hearts delight. I had custom eggs, fresh smoothies, raw fish, gluten free bread etc. I asked for sugar free yogurt and they didn’t have it on the first day, the next day they served me with just that and assured me they are stocked for the remaining of my stay. Heiniri Tehamana took care of my every need during breakfast, she remembers my preferences and serves like clockwork. A local of the area, this woman can serve in any upscale joint anywhere in the world. The other 2 restaurants were just ok, the selection was limited and not exciting at all. For those prices, I need to be wowed. Despite the slight imperfections of this resort relative to my needs, it earned a 5 star rating because of SERVICE. The careful, methodical and thoughtful execution of everything they do to ensure that the guest is provided with custom and personal service is very commendable. I ended up traveling solo and I never felt out of place. Specific instructions to my healthy diet were followed throughout. These personal touches are what makes the service in this place special, its really the people that makes this beautiful resort stand out amongst its peers. Everyone I encountered here provided superb service but a few people are worth noting Taimanu (butler), Alex (lagoon), Tehana (Aparima). This property sets the standard from which all 5 star luxury resort should strive to be. It will be a difficult benchmark to beat or even meet. I was invited by the concierge at the four seasons concierge to spend a day. There are 2 things that I think it has a better advantage over StR. The beach and the food. They are both spectacular properties it just matter what’s truly important to you. Its worth noting that the StR is a Chinese owned company but thankfully they are governed by French laws and luckily managed by French people so employees are treated well. Richard Schilling was the general manager and it was his last week when I was there. I hope the new GM carries his legacy and keep StR Bora Bora a cut above the rest. Is this place expensive? YES! Is it a good value for your money? Absolutely! I am already planning to be back and highly recommend it.
