Rated 5 out of 5 Amazing Hotel
It has been my dream to stay in Bora Bora and when choosing the hotel I did a lot of research. Everything met and exceeded my expectations! The food was amazing the staff was amazing. It was the little touches that put it above the rest. The only reason why I rated the staff a 4 out of 5 was that our butler was very nice but sort of dropped off after a couple of days. I was told that if they sense that you are self sufficient they back off but I would have liked a check in every day. Other than that it was amazing!

Service was awesome as expected. Our butler Richie really went above and beyond and always seem to anticipate our needs before even asking. And of course beautiful resort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Redbone Fantastic hotel, beautiful location
Wow, where do I start. There is so much to tell. First let me say the St Regis Bora Bora is a first class resort and they work very hard to assure your stay is enjoyable. When you arrive at the airport they meet you, take your bags, escort you to their boat for the trip to the St Regis, and check you in while on the boat ride. Once you arrive they have your butler escort you to your room and give you a tour of the facilities. A first class start to your stay. Once there you can relax and enjoy the beautiful water and views that Bora Bora offers. We were very lucky as we were upgraded to a two bed room overwater bungalow with a pool. A fabulous room with about 1,800 square feet and another 1,000 square feet of deck. We found it hard to leave our pool and deck to utilize other areas of the resort. Breakfast was a buffet and was included in our package. It was very good with plenty of choices like 4-6 types of juices, pancakes, waffles, omelets, numerous breads, bacon, 6-8 types of fruit, meats, cheeses, etc. Our favorite breakfast item was the banana bread. We normally took a couple pieces back to the room to snack on later in the day. They have a beach that you can sit on and there are sail boats, paddle boards, paddle boats, kayaks, etc for your use. We had two massages at the Spa and they were great. We really enjoyed the couples massage. They also have a lagoon you can snorkel in that has lots of friendly fish.
I do have these suggestions to help the vacation go better
They have bikes you can use while you are there. They do help you get around this spread out property. They do pick them up at night, as they do not want someone to wreck trying to ride at night. Get another bike the next morning when you go to breakfast.
Food is very expensive all across Bora Bora and the St Regis is no exception. Two burgers and a couple beers approaches $80. An option is to take the complementary boat to town that St Regis provides each day. They go across the lagoon and then have a van meet you to take you to the town of Vaitape. Vaitape has souvenir shops, black pearl shops, and a grocery store. My wife and I bought some bread, cheese, chips, wine, and luncheon meats so we could eat some lunches in our room at a more reasonable cost. There is a small refrigerator in the room.
You need to go off the property and eat a few dinners on Bora Bora. St Regis provides a boat service at 6:00 each evening that takes you to the island. If you book through the concierge the restaurant will have free vans waiting to take you to the restaurant. After dinner the van takes you back to the dock and the St Regis boat brings you home. We did this 4 times and it is very easy.
The Lagoon restaurant at the St Regis is excellent and you need to try it at least once.
On Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning at 10:30 they have a fish feeding at the lagoon. It is worth attending.
Our favorite restaurants were La Villa Mahana (make reservations early), Restaurant St James, and the Lagoon restaurant. Bloody Mary’s is Ok but probably a better lunch place.
Language is normally not a problem for English speaking guests. Most of the staff you interact with is proficient with English
If you do not want to walk, call and they will send a golf cart to pick you up and take you anywhere on the property. Just give them about 20 minutes to arrive.
About 2/3 or the guests are on their honeymoon. I was married 28 years before I got to Bora Bora. I just kept asking the guys what are you going to do to top this on your first, fifth, or any anniversary. They are really setting the bar high.
Overall this was one of our best vacations ever. We are already trying to determine when we can return

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stepan69 Wonderful family vacation
I just spent 2 weeks at the St. Regis Bora Bora with my family, and could not be happier. The resort offers activities for all, grand parents, parents and kid. The service was top notch, and the location almost surreal. I strongly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Catherine44 Best family holiday - EVER!
After holidaying with you in 2010 as a couple we decided that we would return bringing our 3 children - ages 16;10 and 9. Although the resort facilities have always been amazing, this time around what has improved immensely is the service. Under Michael's management the resort can now truly hold its own with the best.
The way the staff looked after us and our family was fantastic - from organizing activities to meals and generally acknowledging and caring for us. We did lots
of activites with the highlight being the lagoon tour with Jack - thank you Marion for organizing this!
There is no doubt it is our new favorite place and we will definitely be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ClarkMiller St Regis Bora Bora 6/30-7/6/14
We had the opportunity to stay in both a beach villa and a deluxe overwater villa. We loved the privacy of having our own beach in the beach villa. We loved it so much we were married on the beach in front of the beautiful villa. The wedding staff Karine and Rose were excellent at handling all of the details. Our butler Thierry arranged for late check out to ensure we had the time for our sunset ceremony. When we switched to the overwater villa, we were equally impressed. Both villas were equally spacious and comfortable. The beds, pillows and linens exceeded our expectations to the point that we want to purchase the very same bed as we both slept better than ever at the St. Regis in Bora Bora. The staff are friendly and professional and they all get an A+ for service. The food was the best I have ever experienced. Well done!
