Greetings from Bora Bora: Latitude 17* south of equator; 4100 miles from California!
A beautiful place to await the ship! Off the plane and walk right onto a boat to take us through atoll lagoon to hotel of Bungalows. This is "heaven on earth", the bluest water we have ever seen. From the original Bora Bora Hotel of 1961, there are now 12 …

... that was
ruined by a cyclone in 2010. With perfect white sand beaches and
turquoise water, those over the water bungalows, were a visual
feast that dazzled our eyes. As we sailed around the island on our
trimaran, we saw multi-colored lagoons, surrounded by palm-covered
Motus inside a protective necklace of coral. The lagoon is three
times the size of the land mass and offers an amazing range of
different hue's of blue and ...
12 July – 16 July 2013 / Tahiti-iti /Society Islands - French Polynesia
48 hours later in the early morning we are rounding the southern end of Tahiti after a
smooth sail across from the Tuomotu. The mist is rising off the back of the
mile-long breaks running the edge of the coastline. Huge lush mountains point
through the clouds and all looks magical. No wonder the sailors of old jumped
ship here. We shift direction and head ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort
Orana! Our extensive research and consultation to find the perfect honeymoon was a true success. As Manhattanites, my husband and I truly enjoy traveling and luxurious accommodations, dining and service. Our experience at the St. Regis Resort Bora Bora was absolutely magical!
After reading some of the dergatory reviews on this site, I felt obligated to relate my experience. The St. Regis is the finest property in Bora Bora without exception. We had lunch at the Nui and spent time at the Thalasso and neither came close. The rooms are amazing, the staff could not have been nicer (all of whom spoke english well enough to satisfy and exceed all our concerns.) You have your own butler at the hotel, who on one occasion ironed and pair of pants and my shirt before dinner in just 20 minutes as I had just returned from jet skiing. The food is superb. The ahi tuna at the lagoon restaurant is the best on the island. The crew at Bloody Mary's will tell you the same. The hotel is top notch, you truly have to make an effort not to have a great time.
We went to the St. Regis Bora Bora on the first leg of our honeymoon. We had VERY high expectations, especially because we both love to travel and had recently taken some unbelieveable trips to Bali, Hong Kong and Tortola. Knowing it was the first week the hotel was open, we were not sure what to expect. From start to finish, we were blown away. (We even cancelled our reservation at the hotel in Moorea and exptended our stay at the SR).
My husband and I have just returned from a week at the St. Regis Bora Bora, which was the last week of our three-week honeymoon trip (for the first 2 weeks we had travelled across the States). I have to say that everything was superb and we really did not want to come back home!
I have just returned from a week at the St. Regis and I have to write a review as I hspent one of the best vacations in my life at that resort. This is the best place in French Polynesia. The resort is absolutely magnificent and the service is really great. The staff is so friendly and helpful. My husband and I had a massage every day and we love their spa.
We've just returned from our 9 day stay at the St. Regis Bora Bora. Although the hotel has posted a June 20 grand opening date on their website the hotel is not fully operational. They currently had about 25 rooms completed out of the 90 or so rooms they have available. The hotel was relatively empty. You almost feel as though you have the resort to yourself - which can be good if you are looking for that type of experience. I think many of the guests were surprised to arrive at the current state of the hotel particularly when it came to operational/service issues and the lack of details missing from a 5 star hotel experience.
We've been very fortunate to have had 4 trips to Bora Bora and we just returned from our last trip. We stayed at the newly opened, or should I say partially opened St. Regis and were very pleased. I say partially open since only about half the rooms were ready for occupancy, but all the public areas were complete, except the sushi restaurant and children's activity center.
Just came back from my honeymoon in paradise. Let me first say that I have not stayed at any other properties in Bora Bora so I cannot compare the St. Regis to any others, I can only compare it to my expectations which I obtained from reading numerous forums about Bora Bora.
Just so I am up front with my biases, I had a below average experience at the St. Regis, but an excellent time in Bora Bora. Thus, you know my sentiments right up front.
