My husband and I visited in May of 2019 for our anniversary. This hotel was amazing. The in person beauty is undesirable. I didn’t think it could be more beautiful than the pictures you see, but it really is. You could tell that they prided themselves in top of the line service. We loved the butler service and utilized for our morning coffee. They were always prompt with golf cart pick up, bring us bikes or snorkel equipment, and just in general! We chose to eat all of our meals on site. We have certain food allergies we mentioned the first night that they passed along to other restaurants. The hotel celebrated our anniversary multiple nights with desert and flowers. We particularly enjoyed the lagoon but also liked the pool bar food (specifically the steak!). All in all it was an incredible stay and the hotel was incredible. My husband and I are Hilton honors members but used some of my old Marriott and SPG points from business trips to book this trip and we felt as though the service surpasses that of the Waldorf’s we have stayed in. I highly recommend this hotel.

This will be a two part review, since we went twice and just never got around to reviewing the first time. In both cases, we went through an agency: “Pacific for Less” (I will refer to as PfL from here on). FIRST TRIP (our honeymoon - Aug. 2014, 10 nights): Coming from Eastern Canada (Montreal), it’s a long flight to Papeete/Tahiti (the first stop before the inter-island flight to Bora Bora) so after all that, it was a nice touch that the agency has people to greet you there, help you with luggage, and direct you to the right part of the airport for the inter-island flight to Bora Bora. Upon arrival on Bora Bora, the hotel has its own booth at the airport there and they will greet you with refreshments (bottled water & chilled towel) and will take care of your luggage. Again, after 16+ hours of flights and airports, it helps with getting reinvigorated. You then board a boat shuttle that takes you from the airport directly to the hotel. All to say that, the moment you get to French Polynesia, you feel as though you have everything taken care of for you and that the rest will be smooth sailing. When we booked the trip with PfL, we really had our hearts set for one bungalow in particular and let them know how important it was to us. While it couldn’t be guaranteed, Claudia did her best to work with the St. Regis to make it happen and, to our utter delight, managed to get it for us! A big thank you to her for starting us off on the right foot like that. On top of that, she was able to get us a superb rate from Air Canada to LAX with our luggage checked in all the way to our destination. Next, the St. Regis itself was like a dream: we felt as though we had a whole island to ourselves because the property was huge and there appeared to be relatively few guests that stayed at all at once, at least when we went. Everything was so well manicured every day: from dead leaves being picked off the grounds of the property to the beach sand being raked every day. And the view on Mount Otemanu with the lagoon in between made us really feel as though we were in a secluded paradise. The service was also exceptional. We never had to ask for anything twice, and the hotel provided some nice touches to highlight that it was our honeymoon with a complimentary daily dose of their hand-crafted pastries. Their advice as to where to eat outside of the resort was also spot-on, especially when we asked them for a restaurant that was more local, where we were treated to some of the island’s specialties at a quaint snack-bar called “Tipi-Rai” located on the property of the woman who ran it (I could write a whole review on that one). It was really practical that there were almost hourly boat shuttles between the St. Regis and the main island so getting to your reservation on time was a breeze and free of charge. On the main island, the St. Regis had its own dock for those shuttles with a mini-bungalow with drinking water and a direct line to the hotel, a nice touch. Also, what was great was that the butler who was assigned to us almost always followed up to ask if their suggestions were any good. Better still, when we described the less-than-stellar service we got for one of their suggested off-resort restaurants (“Yacht Club”), our butler offered us a bottle of champagne to make up for it, even though the poor experience was completely out of their control! In general, the staff are always friendly and helpful, from the groundskeepers all the way up to the head butler, and will often if not always ask what they can do to make the experience better. For example, we arrived at the St. Regis early in the day after our long trip and did not eat much and, even though the breakfast buffet is not included on the first day, our butler made an exception. Speaking of food, the breakfast buffet alone had a great selection of both local food (like the raw fish with tomato, cucumber and coconut milk), French food (like pastries and still the best French toast a.k.a. “Pain Perdu” I’ve ever had) and the usual American-style breakfast (like bacon, eggs, etc), not to mention fruits, yoghurts, etc. that offered a lot of variety every day. The resort’s restaurants that we tried were ALL terrific (the only one we didn’t try was the Italian “Far Niente”), and we especially loved The Lagoon. Lastly, plenty of activities were offered at the resort: there is a tennis court, a gym, a lagoonarium with an on-site marine biologist and the opportunity to feed the sharks there, plus beach activities like kayaking and sailing. The spa there was great, and our package included a couple’s massage, which was a great, relaxing way to kick off our honeymoon. Even after 10 nights there, we never got bored of the experience, be it activities, dining, or anything else. PfL was great too since everything in terms of getting to/from the hotel and our excursions went flawlessly and worry-free. We loved it so much and left heavy-hearted since we could have stayed even longer. On the shuttle back to the airport from the St. Regis, my wife and I promised ourselves then and there to return in 5 years, which leads me to... SECOND TRIP (5-year anniversary - Aug. 2019, 8 nights): Expectations were high as we really wanted to recreate our honeymoon bliss - no small feat by any means. We once again took PfL to task to make it happen, and this time it was Jennifer who was the agent we worked with. In the 5 years since we first went, Marriott had taken over the St. Regis from Starwood, and we noticed a few changes that made us apprehensive as to whether we would get the same level of enjoyment: 1. The room categories changed and our favourite bungalow was elevated by two categories making it MUCH more expensive (it didn’t help that all prices were in USD and the rate with the Canadian dollar shot up since our first trip). 2. Starwood offered 10 nights for the price of 7, but Marriott replaced that with 4 nights for the price of 3, so not as good a deal. 3. The regular shuttles between the hotel and its dock on the main island were less frequent (6 times per day), with only the lunchtime shuttle being free of charge. Not a big deal but worth mentioning. All to say that, while we hoped for the best, we had a feeling things wouldn’t be as good. Thankfully, our expectations were exceeded, as was the level of service since our first visit. So as not to repeat myself, everything since the first time was almost all as good, with a few things that were even better: 1. With our original bungalow no longer an option, we again were particular on our alternate bungalow of choice. Once again, PfL pulled through and managed to work with the St. Regis to get us a stunner of a bungalow that was closer to the main complex yet had an even better view. 2. Speaking of view, the small gazebos on the balcony have this awning that’s put there for privacy but, in our case, was blocking our view of Mount Otemanu. We asked our butler if it could be removed and installed on the opposite side and, sure enough, they accommodated us, and timed it so that it would be done while we were outside of the room so as not to disturb us. 3. On their own initiative, they had their pastry chef prepare us a lovely cake for our anniversary, and a generous one at that, it could have lasted us days! 4. Speaking of pastries, my wife had a favourite from our first trip in 2014 and asked if they could recreate it. While the pastry chef from then had moved on, the current one did his best to recreate it based on my wife’s description and they even kept the recipe for our return visit! All to say that we once again had the voyage of our dreams, with the St. Regis and PfL team having truly done a great job of giving us a reason to return in 2024 :) A big thanks to our butlers Sébastien & Ritchie, the St. Regis serving staff (Haitapu, Irène, Floriette and especially Suzanne) and Jennifer from Pacific for Less for yet another unforgettable experience. Tips: - If you speak French, make use of it! The locals and staff will appreciate it and you will have a chance to connect with them better: the staff are very sociable and the locals have a great sense of humour. - For the inter island flight from Papeete to Bora Bora, you can have a great view of the island/lagoon as you’re flying in. One of the things that changed from 2014 to 2019 was the side to sit on to get that view. In 2014 it was the left (port) seats, in 2019 it was the right (starboard) seats. That being the case, try to be among the first in the plane and ask the stewardess on which side to sit for the best view. - Service charges/tips are indeed included but if you do end up getting consistently exceptional service from one of the staff, then by all means tip: they will very much appreciate it, and it will show. - Start your booking 7 months in advance so you can have the best chances of having any special requests honoured. - Bring binoculars as there are spectacular views of the main island and Mount Otemanu from the bungalows that overlook it. - If you eat at the Lagoon, you MUST leave space for the chocolate fondant cake with ice cream. - If you opt for the couple’s massage, it’s nice to do within the first couple of days so as to limber up after so many flights (if you are flying in from afar). - While some days might not feel THAT hot, remember that you are in the tropic latitudes and that the sun is VERY strong and you risk burning, especially midday, so protect yourself. - Stagger any excursions/outings: alternate between relaxing days where you do everything on the resort with days when you go out and about. - Put your smartphone away and take in the surroundings, and spend your swimming time in the lagoon instead of the pool.

We had planned this trip almost one year ago and had reached out often to the concierge and reservations team with questions-requests. We have been thrilled with their attentiveness from Julio in the concierge team, along with Daphne also helping with our many requests. Upon arrival we had the privilege of meeting the GM who also took care of us nicely for a portion of our trip as titanium elite members, and we especially have fallen in love with our butler Carmen. She is astute, professional and extremely knowledgable as well as action oriented. We are loving the bungalows, the pools, the beach we have been to thus far and riding around in our bikes to get everywhere or being driven in a resort buggy. We are only on day 3, out of 10, but felt we had to share this as soon as possible to help as many travelers as we could.

St. Regis is a nice luxury resorts in Bora Bora with a great Butler staff. The shark and fish feedings are something to witness. The feeder will explain all the intricacies of the feeding. The views are spectacular to say the least. To dive off into the ocean from your villa deck is a plus. Bikes are provided to get you from one side of the resort to the other. Or set out on foot and I’m sure someone will pick you up in no time, if you require a ride.

I was a bit worried about the stay seeing reviews from those who said the resort was looking tired. The concerns were unfounded, however, as the rooms appeared to have been renovated. The room was spacious and the views were second to none. I had the lagoon view and I feel like I made the right choice as I got to see the color of the lagoon change throughout the day. It’s an incredible sight! The staff were all friendly and did everything they could to accommodate your needs. It’s nice to have someone dedicated to making reservations and arrangements. It’s especially helpful when they coordinate with other companies like snorkeling, island tours and off-resort restaurants so they know when to arrange for the pickup and drop off. The pool and beach staff were excellent as well, helping you get the equipment you need to even odd requests like finding a fresh coconut to peel as some guests wanted. The lagoonarium was a lot of fun and being able to feed them fish food whenever you wanted was great! We heard from other guests who stayed at other locations such as Le Meridien, Conrad and Intercontinental that the St Regis was way better. It sounded like only the only other place which compares is the Four Seasons resort next door. The restaurants at the resort were OK. We tried all the places at the resort, overall the dishes have a late 90s vibe. Indian food on Tuesday was my favorite. Prices were eye watering but just consider it the price for paradise.
