St Regis Bora Bora Resort
As one of Bora Bora’s most magical resorts, the St Regis Bora Bora Resort is the epitome of carefree elegance, located on the edge of a tranquil lagoon with the towering majesty of Mount Otemanu rising in the distance.
Discover exquisitely designed over-water and beach villas, many with terrace whirlpools or private swimming pools.
Choose from one-, two- and three-bedroom villas ranging in size from 140m² to a huge 1200m² – the size of the resort's ultra-luxurious Royal Estate, which has three separate pavilions surrounding a private pool and features a private spa area and lush tropical gardens that border a private white-sand beach.
All villas feature a 24 hour butler service to ensure your stay is even more enjoyable: your butler takes care of duties that range from sorting an unforgettable day of yachting and diving, to supervising every detail of an intimate ‘at home’ candlelit dinner overlooking the lagoon.
The resort features three distinct restaurants, including an over-water dining room featuring Mediterranean and Pacific cuisine.
Be pampered at the resort's 1200m² Miri Miri Spa, which occupies its own private island and offers a range of relaxing Tahitian and Pacific Rim treatments, alongside an array of island-inspired indulgences in seven treatment rooms.
Hotel activities – Work up a sweat in the state-of-the-art fitness centre or relax in the adults-only oasis pool with secluded private cabanas. Go snorkelling in the private lagoon at St Regis Resort and enjoy sunset views from the beachside bar.
The resort can easily arrange jet skiing, jeep safaris, shark and ray feeding, sailing, diving, hiking and sunset cocktail cruises.
The resort is located in a tiny motu in the lagoon, with scheduled boat service to the main island of Bora Bora, the capital Vaitape and Motu Mute airport.
The best time to visit is during the dry season between May and October, when the average annual temperature of 29°C is tempered by refreshing breezes.
The wet season lasts from November to April, February and March being the hottest months of the year. The water temperature hovers between 26°C (78°F) and 29°C (84°F).

Bora Bora is small and can be driven around in about an hour. The island, surrounded by kilometres of fine, white sandy beaches fringed with coconut forests and colourful villages, offers great snorkelling and diving.
Don’t miss nearby ‘Coral Garden’, a natural underwater park, Tupitipiti Point, known for a steep drop-off and colourful sponges and ‘White Valley’ reef, where the entrance teems with gray sharks, barracudas and colourful reef fish including parrotfish and butterfly fish.
