A favorite among our Venture Tahiti Team, the dreamy St. Regis is always ready to welcome guests with a sincere smile and cheerful “Ia Orana”. The resort is the most exotic among the five-star resorts on Bora Bora, and offers the most friendly, local staff.
The elegant villas feature separate living room and bedroom areas, spacious bathrooms embellished with Italian marble, and glass viewing panels throughout, where guests can enjoy the fish and eagle rays swimming beneath.
Relax in the sun while you admire majestic Mt Otemanu at many of the resort’s common areas including the adults only Oasis pool, which is one of two swimming pools on the property.
This seductive sanctuary is ideal for couples celebrating a honeymoon or milestone anniversary. With a team of Romance Specialists available to help plan weddings, vow renewals, beach dinners, motu (island) picnics, and other romantic retreats, your Venture Tahiti Specialist will work closely with the resort's team to make sure your every desire becomes a reality.
You will never want to leave after you have sampled the delicacies at the overwater Lagoon Restaurant by Jean-Georges. We recommend a sunset seating on the outdoor dock where you can watch the sharks and rays swim beneath your feet through the glass floor panels. Italian cuisine is served at the popular Far Niente, and you can enjoy Japanese cuisine and sushi at Bam Boo. International fare is also available at the beachfront Te Pahu Restaurant.
Ask your Venture Tahiti Specialist about a complimentary romantic massage at the Miri Miri Spa, for couples on their honeymoon or celebrating a wedding anniversary, who stay at least 5 nights!
In our opinion, the St. Regis offers the best dining options on Bora Bora. The resort features a vast selection of inspired dishes ranging from Asian, to Italian, to French, and traditional Polynesian. The resort's signature Lagoon Restaurant by Jean-Georges is not to be missed and is one of the top restaurants on Bora Bora. Far Niente will delight lovers of authentic Italian food, and Bam Boo will satisfy even the strongest cravings for fresh sushi. To round things out, there is a little bit of everything served at the casual, beachfront Te Pahu restaurant.
The main swimming pool also features a swim-up bar. You can even enjoy sunset cocktails from the Lagoon Restaurant Bar. Conference and Banquet space is available for up to 100 guests and Room Service is available 24 hours a day.
Creative and inspired culinary pleasures designed by world-famous chef Jean-Georges. The restaurant's overwater setting is perfect for enjoying the sunset over Mt. Otemanu.
