We just returned from a fantastic & magical trip to the St. Regis Bora Bora. All we have to say is WOW. This destination is like none other and likely one of the most romantic & stunning places we have ever been. Bora Bora is a small South Pacific island northwest of Tahiti in French Polynesia. Surrounded by sand-fringed motus (islets) and a turquoise lagoon protected by a coral reef, it’s known for its scuba diving. It’s also a popular luxury resort destination where some guest bungalows are perched over the water on stilts. At the island’s center rises 727m Mt. Otemanu, a dormant volcano.

Bora Bora is much easier to get to than you may think. The destination is only 2 hours further flying time than Hawaii. To get to Bora Bora, you fly from Los Angeles with Air Tahiti Nui or Air France. It’s an 8 hour flight to Tahiti Faa’a International Airport. Fly Air Tahiti between Tahiti and Bora Bora (40 Minutes). The Bora Bora Airport is located on an islet and is absolutely beautiful. The St. Regis boat picks you up at the airport and will take you directly to the resort for check-in.
Everyone’s dream is to stay in an overwater Bungalow and Bora Bora is where this concept all began. There are a few accommodation options. Overwater, Superior Overwater & Deluxe Overwater Villas share the same suite configuration including a separate bedroom and lounge, a large bathroom and a private terrace with gazebo. Overwaters & Superior Overwaters face the Resort’s tranquil interior bay waters with the Superior Overwaters being further out from the Main Beach. Deluxe Overwaters look towards the main island with sunset views. Premier Overwater Villas offer a larger lounge with an alcove for extra guests and the added indulgence of a whirlpool on the terrace facing the stunning Mt Otemanu. In addition, the Royal Overwater Villas are the Resort’s most luxurious accommodations overwater with 2 Bedrooms and 2 Bathrooms, a spacious terrace with double Gazebos around large pool suspended over the lagoon and spectacular mountain views.
As far as the restaurants on site, we couldn’t pick which was our favorite, the food was divine! Set over the lagoon with glass panels to best enjoy the waters lit up from beneath, Lagoon by Jean-Georges Vongerichten, the Resort’s gourmet restaurant, delectably uses the finest ingredients to fuse European and Asian cuisines. Located in the Lagoon by Jean-Georges Restaurant, Lagoon Bar is ideally located to enjoy the breathtaking sunset views behind Mt Otemanu while savouring one of Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s cocktail creations. If you are a Sushi lover like us, the bounty of seafood fresh-caught daily from the Pacific Ocean is delicately prepared by the Sushi Chef at Sushi Take Restaurant, which also offers the most extensive Sake list in French Polynesia. The Italian restaurant on site was an unforgettable experience. With a subtle interpretation of comfort food executed with gastronomic ﬂair, Far Niente Ristorante pays delicious hommage to Italy’s distinctive fare. High quality imported and local produce is the foundation of an aromatic menu accompanied by regional wines specially curated by the sommelier.
