“Phenomenal Bora Bora trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

My husband and I have been to Hawaii a number of times and it was our favorite place on earth but we just might have a new favorite! Our trip to Bora Bora was amazing! First off, let me say that if you are planning on going anywhere in the Pacific, use the travel agency "Pacific for Less!" They were wonderful! Our Travel Consultant was Jennifer Dillon. She really took the time to find out what was important to us in a vacation, booked the flights from LA, transfers between islands, a few restaurant reservations, excursions, spa appointments etc. many at discounted prices had we not booked via the agency. We felt well taken care of! We received an itinerary and reminders of where we were going, when and how to get there for the entire trip. There were people to greet you at the docks so you knew where to go. Awesome!

Regarding where to stay on Bora Bora, no question the St. Regis is your best bet. The people were so friendly and helpful. It is quite a large property so the staff will come pick you up from your hut in a golf cart whenever you would like. You just need to dial up and request it. But, even if you didn't they will often offer rides when they see you walking around the property. Re. the huts--they were the nicest lodging we have EVER stayed in! (and we have stayed in some really nice places). Spacious, great furnishings, wired for sound, killer views, heart shaped tub and rainforest shower.

Regarding the excursions, we highly recommend the Love Boat tour--a private boat tour with just you and your guide who takes you around the island, takes hundreds of pictures which you get on a CD, takes you to an AMAZING snorkeling spot and ends with drinking champagne out of a coconut! The water was so clear and blue. We saw many fish, sting rays and even a small shark (from the boat-don't worry, these sharks don' t attack). Our guide, who is a "local" also said that the St. Regis was the best place to stay on the island. Quite a recommendation.

A great place for dinner is Villa Mahana. Great French food and wine pairing! You need to take a boat ride to the main island but well worth it see what the island is like and the views.

Bora Bora also has the most beautiful sunsets we have ever seen. The whole sky turns a gorgeous pink. Breathtaking! Trip of a lifetime!

Our message is that if you visit Bora Bora, you must stay at the St Regis - you wont regret it!

We thought that we were lucky enough to be able to visit Bora Bora last year, but visiting once again has made us two of the luckiest people! The beauty of the Island, which you are able to see as soon as your plane makes it's approach to the airport, takes your breathe away. The vivid colours of the Island and the water that surrounds it, make it as if you have just stepped into a beautiful painting. It is exactly like the postcards, and you feel as though you should pinch yourself in order to make sure it is real.

For us, staying at the St Regis Bora Bora was an obvious choice. Having been to Bora Bora a year earlier, we knew our way around the island, as well as what all the other hotels had to offer in terms of location, room size, service, choice of activities and restaurants. When you arrive at the St Regis after a 15 minute jaw dropping boat road from the airport with a lei around your neck, and are greeted by your personal butler, you feel instantly relaxed and know you have arrived for what is going to be the most spectacular holiday. You may be asking why choose the St Regis over any other hotel on the Island, which are surely all beautiful? The answer is that (for us at least) there are a number of things we believe made our stay at the St Regis better than if we had stayed at another hotel. Firstly the service, I can say that this is some of the best service we have ever received (and I myself work in the service industry), with a 'nothing is too much trouble' attitude that is shared by all members of the team. Importantly, you really do get a sense that the staff are truly happy working at the St Regis. The fact that they are able to organise so many incredible activities for you at the drop of a hat is an extra bonus. Secondly, the location of the St Regis is by far the best of all the hotels on the island. It has the best views, is in the best part of the lagoon, with the very best swimming directly in front of your room. The entire hotel and all its surroundings are incredibly photogenic and relaxing. Thirdly, the rooms are the largest you will find in the area, with a minimum size of 1,550 Square Feet / 144 Square Meters - ie HUGE! Everything is incredibly spacious, from the bedroom and bathroom, to the living room and private outdoor sun deck. In addition, the rooms are designed not only for luxury, but also privacy.

I hope that the above small snippet helps in your decision of where to stay in Bora Bora. Being the most luxurious hotel we have ever stayed in, we have no hesitation in recommending the St Regis to anyone that is willing to listen.

Recently spent a week at the St. Regis in Bora Bora and had an amazing time. The level of luxury os unlike any experience I have ever had. The food was terrific, the rooms were amazing and the resort was one of a kind.

Free use of snorkling equipment, paddle boats, sail boats, etc. makes it a very fun plac e to play. The views are terrific and the staff could not have been friendlier. Absolutely worth the cost.

Room Tip: We stayed on the island side and had a great view of the main island of Bora Bora. Breathtaking vie...

We recently returned from our amazing trip to Bora Bora! We booked through Tahiti Travel Planners and told them exactly what we wanted...the result was the St. Regis! I could go on all day about the extraordinary service, bungalows, views, food, and amenities! The entire staff was welcoming and catered to our every whim! Tahiti Travel Planners made everything from flights, excursions, and transfers effortless! Our trip was completely organized before we left the U.S. We will definitely be returning to French Polynesia and booking through Tahiti Travel Planners!

I took a fun ride to this beautiful island with my friends. We stayed at the St Regis Hotel. The welcome from the Airport to the the hotel make our flight seem like a dream.. Words cannot describe the St Regis Hotel,the island is so beautiful...a great stay for couples, Supberb Service
We had the pleasure in meeting the GM, Mr Mike Schoonewagen who made it his duty to greet his guests. From all of my travel experiences I never met a GM like him, Very pleasant & sweet he made our stay beautiful memories to last a lifetime between my friends & I. We also met the front desk manager,Mr Pittman who also was always on hand to be sure our stay was enjoyable..it was so refreshing to finally have service like this,the staff always had a smile on their face,they remember what we like for breakfast ,our juices,coconut water...beyond words to describe the service ..thank you Mr GM and your beautiful staff for an enjoyable stay..I will add pictures very soon,better than the postcards you see :):) I'm still in a hangover from this vacation,a good one

Room Tip: Every suite is so beautiful,hard to choose
