Honeymoon in Heaven A review of 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!
From the moment we deplaned in Bora Bora we were greeted by our "Fantasy Island-like" entourage who welcomed us and escorted us on our own personal motorboat to the resort's island. We were greeted by our assigned butler, Emilie, a lovely, sweet and extremely attentive young woman, who provided us with warm hand towels, a ride to and tour of our villa over the water, and eight days of surprise treats and warm hospitality. I must share that my husband and I were so impressed when we entered our gorgeous villa with its breathtaking view that we simply were giddy with excitement! That night we ate at the Jean George inspired restaurant and the Kobe beef was simply to die for. For the duration of our stay, we reveled in this alter reality- perfect weather, soft radiant sun with a zephyr, enjoying fabulous cuisine, impeccable service, kayaking, swimming, sailing, lying in the sun, and room service. Our favorite activity, enjoyed daily, was snorkeling in the resort's man-made lagoon aquarium. The sea life, especially the Pufferfish, is so tame that you can reach out and touch them!!! For all you spa lovers like me...a true massage connoisseur, I would rate my Tahitian massage as one of THE best massages I have had to date...certainly better than Bliss, Red Door, and those I've had at Ritz Carltons, the Waldorf and more! My husband and I also loved and highly recommend the Lagoon Cruise where we saw amazing views of the island and unparalleled crystal clear waters, watched the feeding of sharks, and fed and played with remarkably tame and friendly sting rays. Nothing compares to our escape to this enchanted island and #1 rated St. Regis resort!
Lastly, I must comment on our St. Regis Travel Specialist, Merehani Jithame, who made our trip a reality and our travel in French Polynesia incredibly seamless.
