"Magic Happens at the St. Regis, Bora Bora"
I used to travel world wide for my work and when in NYC I always stayed at the St, Regis by the park and on 5th Avenue. Because of this and my experiences there we decided to stay at the St. Regis Bora Bora. What an amazing decision - Probably the best one over a period of 10 years :-) I'll try to break things down so it can help folks trying to make a decision. Service: As far as I am concerned there is no better service than a St. Regis hotel and especially the Bora Bora. Our Butler was great but so were all the staff. We were actually overwhelmed by the kindness and cheer from all of them. They provide lots of bikes to get around and the philosophy is great - one can take a bike anywhere on the island (unless there are notes on the handle bars or stuff in the basket. Well, I have a spinal disorder that creates equilibrium problems for me so I can't use a normal bike but I can use an adult trike! There are only 3 trikes on the resort (and they weren't in great condition) so I called butler service and asked about maybe getting one for me (all the trikes were in use). They apologized and said they have no way to get me a trike and apologized. About an hour later our doorbell rang and when we opened the door the butler and beach boy staff had brought one of the staff trikes to me to use during our entire stay of 8 nights! Staff uses them for housekeeping and other actions for when they have to get to places fast and with items needed in their baskets. I started to cry. Talk about above the call of duty! We fell in love with all of the staff. I hesitate to call out any names because I would leave someone out as my brain can't retain all the names - there are so many beautiful Tahitian names that I forget. One wonderful woman who I just adored came by our bungalow when I was in the shower. She heard that we were leaving when she would be off. I believe she worked in the restaurant but my hubby couldn't remember her name. Anyway, when she came by she gave my husband a gift for me, telling him she really had come to like me a lot and wanted to say thank you. When he told me about the encounter I cried again. :-) I keep the gift near us as it is very special. I can comment on the St Regis non-stop and on the beautiful island itself. OH, and Clement our concierge (there are 2 Clements - one is at the front desk and then the senior concierge) was just fantastic! He arranged a number of excursions for us. The BEST by far was the AquaSafari. It's a 30 minute 'dive' with helmet masks (contact me if you want more info -firstname.lastname@example.org). Unless you are already a scuba diver don't bother but if you aren't and want a similar experience do not hesitate to enjoy this excursion. Well, I wanted to write about the bungalow (the ST Regis upgraded us from a deluxe over-water to a premier bungalow with a Jacuzzi on our deck and a full suite with separate bedroom and living room. But since we just got back 2 days ago I am still overwhelmed. Maybe I'll add more later but I've already taken too much of your time! GO TO BORA BORA AND GO TO THE ST. REGIS. We'll be going back. Hugs, Lydia and Dave
"Beauty, Service, Relaxation"
My wife and I have stayed here before and certainly looked forward to this return trip. We stayed in an over-water bungalow and that is the best choice here. They have about 5 categories of these types of rooms so be sure when booking you get the type you prefer. They have a nice beach with comfortable cushioned chairs. There are servers so you can get a drink or even eat on the beach. Although we did not sit by the pool it is nice with a few chairs sitting in a shallow part of the pool. We enjoyed sitting on our deck at the over-water bungalow as much as the other locations. Room service is quick and the food always arrived hot. Our butler was helpful with suggestions on things to do. The rooms are large, clean, and comfortable. We slept well while here. The hotel is spread out but they have bikes you can use which is nice. This is a great resort with beautiful views, great service, and a relaxing atmosphere.
"Was perfect from start to finish.... simply amazing resort."
Beautiful resort. Overwater bungalow was perfect. Our butler, Joann, attended to our every need. The breakfasts are amazing. Avoid the Italian restaurant, food and service there, was the only negative we had from our entire trip to Tahiti and her islands. Simply amazing!!
"Unbelieveable Hotel - Fantastic"
St. Regis Review: My wife and I chose the St. Regis for our honeymoon. We stayed here from October 5 thru October 12. I must say that we couldn’t have chosen a better place to spend our time in paradise. For the past 11 years, I’ve consistently been on the road traveling and staying in many different types of hotels (from your average brand chain to five star hotels). Each one of those hotels were just another hotel room. Each of those hotels were as expected, very nice, clean, and make you feel comfortable during your stay. When we stayed at the St. Regis in Bora Bora, I can say that it blew every other hotel away; it wasn’t just another hotel room. Yes, you are in an absolutely beautiful location in Bora Bora. I’m sure that each of the hotels in Bora Bora have a beautiful location; however, I can say that the service at the St. Regis was unparalleled to any five star hotel I’ve every been at. The entire staff provided exemplarly customer service, and were nothing but attentive and friendly. Our butler, Yulia, was outstanding. She was extremely professional and friendly. She made us feel very welcome and helped handled our stay beautifully. This was the one vacation where I truly felt like all I han to do was just show up. Everything was taken care of - reservations, excursions, etc… - all we had to do was just tell them when and where, and all you had to do was show at the time they told you. All trips to the main island or to excursions seemed so smooth. I really didn’t worry about one thing while on the island. The over the water villa was just great. It really is a great room. I loved the living room area, and the private deck and swimming platform. The ability to open up all the doors and feel the ocean breeze was just relaxing. The Mira Mira Spa was a great treat as well. The entire complex is well maintained and beautiful. I’m sure that you can find a negative in any great place or location. Yes, the food and drinks are expensive, but then again you are on an island in the middle of nowhere. Regardless, you will absolutely enjoy your stay at this location. I’ve never wrote a review about a hotel, and this was the only one I felt compelled to write one. Thank you to the St. Regis for a great stay!
"Perfect Honeymoon Spot"
Bora Bora is truly paradise and the St. Regis made for a dream honeymoon destination. We loved the service from the moment we arrived at the airport. We received leis, had a nice boat ride to the hotel, and were welcomed with delicious smelling cold towels and welcome drinks. We received a tour of the property (the lagoon is breathtaking and the pools are fabulous) and we were able to check in at 10 am, which we really appreciated since our flight arrived at 8 am. We enjoyed the complimentary unpacking service from the butlers (and the packing service when we left) and loved the champagne and treats that were sent over for our honeymoon. We had the overwater bungalow with the mountain view, and the room was stunning. I really liked the view of the mountain better than the beach view and it felt much more private. We also enjoyed all of the amenities at the hotel. The beach has kayaks, snorkeling equipment, and stand up paddle boards to use free of charge and there are bikes all over the resort that make getting around fun, or you can just catch a ride on a golf cart. I loved that the resort was sold out, yet we never felt crowded anywhere we went. We loved the breakfast buffet and dinner at Jean Georges (the Wednesday night buffet wasn't very exciting and overpriced) and we also loved the yoga class at the spa (doing yoga outdoors with such an incredible view is amazing). We also appreciated the incredibly friendly beach boys that catered to us as we relaxed on the beach. The only part we didn't think was perfect was that we were told we could have wake up calls every morning where coffee would be brought to us, but the wake up calls never came until we called to remind them about 30 minutes after they were supposed to be there (so beware if you are relying on them to wake you up for an early excursion or tour). Also, they had a shower room available before our late flight, but even though we showed up earlier than they told us to, they only had one shower room for all of the guests and we were really stressed and rushed when they finally let us in the shower room 10 minutes before our airport boat left. However, it ended up being ok and I appreciated that they had our boarding passes printed out for us and our luggage already on the boat. It was truly a magical, perfect honeymoon location.
