Reviews for The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort

Now featuring traveler reviews from:


TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 1 week ago

This review is not meant to convince or deter you from visiting the St Regis Bora Bora. It’s an overview of our opinions in a concise summary. Here’s the top ten list... 1. The price: OK, it’s French Polynesia at the St Regis. If you have a problem paying $40 for a turkey sandwich and $30 for a Mai Tai, you may want to choose an alternate destination. Honestly, 5 nights in an overwater bungalow, flights, food, a spa service and excursions will easily exceed $10,000 and may be closer to $15,000 depending on your choice of rooms. Even Disney is cheaper! 2. The property: 44 acres equals one massive resort. Bicycles are scattered around the beach and always available. We grabbed two on our first day and basically held onto them the entire week. We opted to walk from our bungalow to breakfast each morning which took about 15 minutes one way. The spa to our room would be about 25 minutes but don’t worry, they arrange golf cart transportation for you. You can also call for a club car (golf cart) anytime you want. We were told the resort was full but hardly noticed it. We never waited for anything! Want 2 loungers with an umbrella at the main pool at noon? You will have a dozen from which to choose. 2 beach chairs? No problem. A hammock swinging in the water? Well, there’s only two but rarely ever occupied. There is an oasis pool with private cabañas in the center of the overwater bungalows. It’s first come first serve but always found five vacant. There is a protected lagoon near the spa which took 10 minutes by bike. Grab some snorkeling gear at the beach and spend some time there. Remote, peaceful, tons of fish, and best of all...complementary!!! 3. The food: um, mostly delicious but not always. Breakfast was included and consisted of a massive buffet with sashimi, fresh fruit, juices, omelettes, on and on and on! I did not have anything I didn’t like. Lunch was always a snack at the pool. Basic fare of burgers and sandwiches at massively inflated prices. Definitely skip the $32 frozen pizza! I recommend the ahi tuna. Dinners at The Lagoon and Take Sushi were delicious. Make a reservation at The Lagoon and ask for a water-side table. The least expensive option is at the bar or Te Pahu which is more casual but still pricey. 4. The views: definitely the most stressful decision. Here’s the lowdown. The difference in a superior or deluxe overwater bungalow is the view. If you pay a bit more you get a view across the Lagoon at Mount Otemanu, otherwise it’s a view of the surrounding corral reef. The view of Otemanu is gorgeous, but in my opinion if you are looking to save a few bucks, take the cheaper room and spend the savings on a massage. There’s not a bad view in the entire resort. We booked the deluxe and were upgraded to superior upon check in. 5. The spa: we booked a couple’s massage and were not disappointed. The spa is set on beautiful grounds on its own island in the lagoon. Go an hour early and enjoy the amenities before your service. Prices are about par or a bit more expensive compared to other luxury resorts. The spa is quite far from the bungalows so be sure to arrange a time for your pickup. 6. The service: dial 9 whenever you want and ask for whatever you want. It will normally be there in under 10 minutes. We were assigned a personal concierge who took care of all the reservations for everything-spa, restaurants and excursions. French press coffee delivered to your room is complementary every morning and whenever and wherever you choose. 7. The town: Vaitape is located on the main island which is surrounded by the lagoon and coral reef. It’s only accessible by boat. For $50 the St Regis will take you to the island, get you into town, and shuttle you back. The town is small but has souvenir shops and cafes. We actually skipped the town and opted to have dinner at the famous Bloody Mary’s. The food was very good and the atmosphere great. However, don’t feel obligated. It’s a project just to get there, and the food at the resort is as good if not better. It’s a bit cheaper but add the boat ride and it’s virtually a tie. There are a few other food restaurants as well, but we opted to stay at the resort as it’s sort of a pain. 8. The weather and dress: since we no longer have to travel on season, we elected to save a few bucks and visit in the off season. November starts the rainy season and, well, it rained. However, it was only on 2 days and intermittent with the heaviest stuff overnight. It was actual welcoming after all that sunshine. The other days were hot, humid, sunny and tropical. The water is warm enough everywhere we went so leave that wetsuit at home. It’s definitely bathing suits all day. Bring a cover up if you want to have lunch in the bar or Te Pahu. Although the resort recommends pants for men at dinner, many guests wore shorts. Sun dresses, skirts or pants are fine for women. 9. The excursions: we did the ATV/Jet Ski trip and the shark and ray feeding. These were both booked by the resort. You may be able to find third parties cheaper, but the resort took care of everything from start to finish including the boat transfer to the main island. The ATV was just OK with more on road time than off road time. The shark and ray feeding was sensational!!! DO NOT MISS THIS EXCURSION. It’s actually one of the cheaper adventures and fantastic. We swam with sharks and sting rays while being serenaded with the ukulele by our guide between stops. 10. Tipping: controversial but neither expected nor required. Nobody ever stood with their palm upward creating that awkward moment. The service was given, a polite thank you was offered and a quick exit taken. Being American we added an additional 10% in restaurants as 4% was already included. We also took care of our tour guides and spa masseuses. So why do I give it 4 stars instead of 5? First, although the grounds are set on a beautiful piece of property, there were too many details missed on the service. It was hard to find pool service, they never got our morning coffee quite right, we had to chase down our itinerary, and there was poor follow-up on a chef request. These things sound trivial, but at $1500 per night, these details mean everything. Second, I get paying $1500 for the room and $250 for the spa, but I get this feeling that the St. Regis can charge whatever they want whenever they want as you are more or less isolated to the resort. It would be nice to have alternatives to $35 hamburgers and $12 iced teas!!!! Finally, can’t they do anything about the bugs????

We just returned from our 8 day stay at the St. Regis and had a fabulous time! The weather was spotty during our trip (beware of this risk at this time of year) and I will say there is not much to do on rainy days (think deserted island with all tv channels in french). Our first full day it rained hard all day long and we were so sad. But then there are these perfect clear days and life cannot get better than that. The St Regis has the best views, huge villas, a great beach on a quiet lagoon, simply stunning. The butler service is great, my husband had items pressed daily and loved that perk. They are always ready and willing if you need anything. We found the staff to all be very friendly throughout the resort. I was also so grateful that they arranged early check-in and late check-out for us for no charge. It was so appreciated because we arrived early in the morning and our flight out was in the evening. That way we got to enjoy one more day lounging by the pool the day we left. We met some people staying at the Four Seasons and they complained that they were not offered these perks and were forced to wait several hours for their rooms to be ready on arrival after many hours of traveling. We loved the Otemanu views from our premier overwater villa. However- I probably would not choose a villa with a jacuzzi again because we barely used it as it was not heated (this was odd to us and something I was disappointed about). I would have loved nothing more than to relax in a hot tub during those rainy chillier days. We had great dining experiences, loved Lagoon and Far Niente. The french toast at the breakfast buffet was our favorite, so delish! Yes the food is expensive but on par with what we expect from a resort of this caliber. You can't expect to stay at a pricy resort like this and want "budget" dining options. Special thanks to the concierge for arranging a last minute jet ski tour right off the beach for us one morning. Had to take advantage of beautiful weather when we could! We did 2 different jet ski tours during our stay because it was the best- great way to see the island and take advantage of that smooth beautiful lagoon. I don't normally enjoy it because large waves hurt my back but there are virtually no waves on the lagoon aside from other boaters. Highly recommend it. One small complaint is I wish they had better service at the beach, we had to go in search of someone to order drinks and get our check. Overall though it was a memorable stay in a gorgeous location, thank you to the staff, and we highly recommend the St Regis!

Bora bora is stunning even prettier than the pictures. If you are considering going away please note that this is a different kind of trip than you are most likely used to. It is a very isolated quiet kind of trip, it is relaxing and unplugged. I researched and researched and decided we would go for it! I read countless reviews before choosing the St. Regis for our honeymoon. We first went to Moorea for 5 nights and then to Bora Bora for 5 nights. Our pick up from the airport by yacht was luxurious and you begin on such a high. We were greeted by someone at the airport filled out a brief paper and were transferred by boat with one other couple. You will be in awe of the beauty stepping off the plane. Once docked we were greeted by multiple staff and it was perfection. We met our butler who took us on a lengthy tour of the property, which was great to get to know the layout (which is huge). Unfortunately we only got to be with him for one night because he became ill, I do think this is where a disconnect began. We checked into our room which was incredibly impressive and much larger than I had thought it would be. -If you are looking into fine details (as I do) you will realize the furniture is worn and in need of an update to be paying what you will if you stay here. I will say you will quickly over look this because of how amazing the view is. (great deflection!) Our first evening we were made aware of a convention on property and were given a complimentary bottle of wine by the manager for the inconvenience (beautiful touch that went a long way in our stay) The convention took up most of the property while we were there and did affect the restaurant and spa scheduling which was an inconvenience so I was happy that it was addressed at the beginning of our stay. The theme night dinner was altered ultimately leading us not to go, wish this had been different, but it happens. The grounds appear endless, the fish feeding was worth going to, education and super cool to see. Service was touchy unfortunately. We did not have a great experience at the spa. I had gone into the sauna and when I stood up I had hair from others all over my legs( disgusting). Also there was great confusion with laundry service including my husband not getting a shirt in time for our dinner at The Lagoon restaurant. Confusion also with our itinerary. We had to clarify things many times as we were given different answers by different staff. My biggest complaint were the bugs. It was not until the first night and we turned the lights off, excepts for one over our bed that there was a swarm of mosquitos and termites. There is a paper when you check in that says they do their best to keep them away but because it is an island you may see some. Well because of the convention we were not offered to move until our last day. I had to call daily and they came 2x a day to spray. Waking up to dead bugs all over your bedroom and bathroom is vile. I was less than impressed with this, and It was not fun waking up with bug bites. What I will say is butler staff and manager made it a point to address the issues. We were comped for the massages, and given a late check out on our last day. I appreciate that it was handled. But previously staying at other St. Regis properties much of this would be unacceptable. The staff does go out of their way to be accommodating and it is a breathtaking experience. Food at the property was also hit or miss. We did not enjoy our night at the sushi restaurant, but we had the best meal of our lives at The Lagoon restaurant. I feel that our trip if the issues had not been addressed would have been poor, but the issues were given the attention they deserved. Going to a property such as this, you do have expectations. Make sure you do your research and find what may fit you best! I hope this helps in your decision making!

We stayed here for the second half of a ten-day anniversary trip, after Le Taha'a. The St. Regis is a fantastic resort. As you arrive on the St. Regis boat from the airport, you really feel like you are living an episode of Robin Leach's Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. The views are breathtaking, and the resort has everything you could want. PLUSES/SURPRISES: * Enormous rooms: The 1550 SF rooms to be simply *enormous*. Although less than twice the size of our rooms at our last resort, they felt more than twice as large. * Clear, deep, swimmable water: The water is quite deep and, depending on your bungalow, dive-able (or at least I did). I swam with a stingray twice outside of our bungalow. The water did not have large clumps on broken hard seaweed ala Le Taha'a. * Wifi everywhere: Wifi offered even on the boat ride from the airport! Strong, fast wifi in the rooms. * Food: Two of the four restaurants -- Lagoon by Jean-Georges Vongrichten (formerly of Vong, etc.) was fantastic and Michelin-star-worthy. The somm, Joris, was excellent and steered us quickly towards French wines that our California palates would like. The Italian restaurant, Far Niente, also was fabulous. Breakfast at Te Pahu was consistently good, with a good variety of baked goods. Te Pahu also offers crepes, eggs, omelets, and eggs benedict to order. The juicers also were a big plus. * Wine: They have a modest to decent wine list -- one that encourages you to try their Cotes de Beaune or Billecart-Salmon Brut NV instead of hoarding bottles from duty-free pre-arrival. With some offerings in the $80-$120 range, you are willing to just buy a bottle and enjoy it over the afternoon. * Bikes! The resort is large enough where you will *want* to find one of the free bikes located around the resort, Google-like, and use it during your stay. The bikes are low-end with coaster brakes and rusted chains due to the elements, but super useful. * Lagoon (for snorkeling): An enormous enclosed man-made lagoon for snorkeling. Much better -- and safer -- than the coral gardens at La Taha'a. Free snorkeling gear, of course. * Swim-up pool bar and Oasis pool: The main pool has a great swim-up pool bar and floating chairs. The separate Oasis pool has a waterfall and five cabanas -- each with a telephone for ordering drinks and room service. * Gym: The fitness center is large and has an on-site fitness instructor. The fitness instructor teaches the Pilates, yoga, and aqua fitness classes for a reasonable fee. Even when you are just using the gym, she helpfully offers you water, wipes down the machines for you, and suggests tips to avoid injury (e.g., my wife is prone to over-squatting when working out, and the instructor reminded my wife not to extend her knees past her toes). * Spa: A good full-service spa for massages, mani-pedis, etc. with a sauna, steam, and tea room. MINUSES/MISSES: * Service: We only identified one -- the consistently inconsistent service. When the service was on, it was really on. But the staff not infrequently missed things, leading to follow-up requests. Some aspects were impeccable and thoughtful. E.g., drawing assumptions from our surname, they assigned us a bilingual butler. (Although they were wrong, it was a nice touch.) Our butler was enthusiastic, friendly, and eager-to-please. When the staff communicated, it was impressive. E.g., I informed the receptionist in the spa that I had lost the earpiece for my Bose headphones, and my waiter knew about it when I arrived at breakfast an hour later. And when my wife requested limes for our room, they arrived the following day without needing to request them. Staff throughout the resort were uniformly and genuinely friendly. On the other hand, there were multiple early misses. These involved a failure to call back for the unpacking service, a 20+ minute wait for a golf-cart pickup, a forgotten spa booking, and a forgotten late check-out request. We flagged these issues with the GM, who graciously visited us personally and addressed all of these issues. Even then, housekeeping forgot to bring our coffee on the last day, necessitating another followup. TIPS: * Weather: Check the almanac carefully. Rates drop in the off-season, but so does the chance of rain. Bora Bora loses so much of its beauty and tranquility when you are stuck in your room during a downpour (and I mean *downpour*). While it rained only on our last day, rain was forecast for the entire following week. * Meal-plan: Our rate came with free breakfast in Te Pahu and free dinner at any of the restaurants. That works out to a ~$320+/day credit, which is well worth it. We ended up skipping lunch and paying only for an extra course course, drinks, and a nice bottle of wine during dinner. * Views: The mountain/island views (e.g., ODOW category) are much more striking than the non-mountain views (e.g., SOW category). * Morning coffee or tea to your room: You just have to ask for it. * Bloody Marys with breakfast: There is a small area with alcohol for making your own Bloody Marys or Screwdrivers. * Lagoon (for snorkeling and the restaurant): Both the lagoon (for snorkeling) and Lagoon (the restaurant) are must visit places. Look for the enormous Napoleon fish in the lagoon, and order the truffle mashed potatoes in the dining room. * Sushi Take (now "Bamboo") and Te Pahu: We would skip both for dinner. Although decent, the sushi falls far short of West or East Coast standards. (E.g., the sushi rice had been refrigerated.) Te Pahu serves a buffet for dinner, which reminded us of cruise fare (albeit good quality cruise fare). * La Villa Mahana: We ate off-resort only once -- at La Villa Mahana, but it was well worth it. The prix fixe option with wine pairings runs $500+, but was exceptional. Request the "VIP table" outside the restaurant, if possible; it is secluded and romantic. * Bikes: As the bikes are first-come, first-served, put a towel or something in your bike to prevent someone from taking it (as happened to us on our last day in front of our bungalow). The Beach Boys by the pool will refill the tires if low. * Tahitian wine: Skip it. No one at the resort really pressed it when we asked about it. When we finally tried it in the ADT airport lounge in Papeete when departing, we understood why (it is very simple -- like boxed wine).

Just spent an amazing 10 days at the St. Regis Bora Bora. What a wonderful hotel with amazing staff and service. After passing through the old and worn airport at Papeete, Tahiti, the flight to Bora Bora on Air Tahiti (not the same as Air Tahiti Nui) was great. Upon landing at the Bora Bora airport you hop on a power boat and away you go. Your first view of Bora Bora is so worth it. Surrounded by this amazing reef with water changing colors from turquoise to azure blue, you arrive at the St. Regis. Aaaaahhh! From that point forward it is absolute heaven. You have your own butler (really a concierge) who arranges anything and everything. Our butler was Sebastien Robin who was such a nice guy. Funny, disarming, discrete and helpful, Sebastien was so great. He showed us the property and dropped us at the most amazing villa over the water. The villa was a dream. Tons of room, giant open shower, great patio with lounge chairs and a ladder into the most amazing tropical water possible. Everyone was so great. Beautiful spa with the best massage on the planet (and I mean it) from Camille. Richard Schilling, the GM of the hotel, dropped by to say hello to us multiple times and was so helpful and nice. Other people who deserve a huge hug are waitress Magali Fardad (waitress), Tanya Lopez and Sabrina (bartenders), beachboys Tom and Tio, restaurant manager Kelly Ferez and the absolutely wonderful restaurant host/manager and bon vivant Rai. That guy made us smile every morning. We loved this place. So will you. Thank you!
