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!
The largest of the one-bedroom villas located on the untouched ocean side of the resort. The ambiance here is perfect travelers who prefer privacy, pristine white sand beaches, and basking in magnificent horizon views while listening to the waves crash against the coral reef in the distance. Includes a swimming pool with gazebo, and beguiling views of the deep blue South Pacific.
Surrounded by the coconut palms, the beachside suites have the same interior design and layout as the one-bedroom Overwater Superior and Deluxe Villas, but feature a large outdoor oasis with terrace, gazebo, outdoor shower and swimming pool. Direct lagoon access is a short walk across a private, powdered white sand beach.
Elegantly crafted and carefully angled with the very best privacy, these spacious overwater villas indulge with their marble accents, rich Polynesian wood and exotic décor. These units offer views across the turquoise lagoon toward a beach and motu (island) in the distance.
These villas feature the exact same design as the Superior Villas but they are angled toward splendid Bora Bora (but not Mt Otemanu).
When upgrading to the Deluxe Otemanu villa (or higher overwater) guests can enjoy spectacular views of striking Mt Otemanu. All of the room types at the resort feature elegant and colorful Polynesian design cues, separate living areas and a beautiful ensuite decorated in fine Italian marble and exotic hardwoods.
The interior of the Premier Villas is even more spacious than the resort's other overwater accommodations, with large living area ideal for families. Also features an over-sized deck with refreshing cool water Whirlpool Jacuzzi.
The most indulgent couples can splurge on the Royal Villa and enjoy a private pool with killer views toward Mt Otemanu. A separate master bedroom and living area with enormous deck and two gazebos. Even more glass viewing panels throughout the villa, and ideally situated with unobstructed views and the best privacy.
The same design as the Royal Overwater One Bedroom option but includes a second master suite. Ideal for families or couples traveling together.
The same design as the One Bedroom Garden Suites but with a second master suite, larger swimming pool, and second gazebo.
This enormous villa boasts 13,000 square feet including three pavilions surrounding a private swimming pool, three bedrooms each with ensuite bathroom, two living rooms, a fully equipped kitchen including a private chef, and one dining room with a pavilion overlooking the sunset. Also features a private spa treatment area with sauna, hamam and Jacuzzi. Tucked among the palm fronds and lush private gardens, this villa offers direct access to the lagoon on the private beach. The Royal Estate is not surprisingly popular with royalty and celebrity visitors, or a family splurging on their dream vacation.
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.
