Review:   We stayed here for our baby moon, it was just amazing. Room was fantastic with glass panels to see the fish below. Spa bath and shower were on another level, lying in bed too look out over the ocean was so relaxing. And being able to just jump off the deck to have a swim within 5 meters of our bed was just too easy. We also took a little fishing rod and caught and released some of the fish swimming around which was a lot of run. Room service was great, staff were so helpful in every area of the resort. We will be back with our little family for sure.

Review:   My wife and I took a two week journey through the islands with the St Regis being a four day stop for us. The villas are quite nice with some very good views. The rooms are starting to get worn a bit as we had a few broken things in ours but nothing to drastic. The service showed signs of greatness and then at other times we were entirely ignored. The check-in and check out process is spot on. I couldn't have asked for anything more. On the negative side we were introduced to our "butler" on night one and then we never saw her again. It was very disappointing to see other couples "butlers" meeting up with them at breakfast and helping them plan their days events. Don't get me wrong I could pick-up the phone and call for service any time I wanted but for the rates being paid I shouldn't be chasing down service related items. There were three different occasions on this trip where my wife had to wait over 20 minutes to get a check from the pool service area during the day time. At night the service at the bar dining area was exceptional. The two most surprising thing my wife and I encountered were the number of toddlers present at the resort. We may have falsely assumed this would be a more quiet and adult location. Every morning at breakfast there were no less than 10 screaming kids. My wife and I scheduled a romantic dinner at the French restaurant later in the evening expecting a nice quiet evening. At almost 9 pm a toddler is seated right next to us and began to scream the entire meal. The other funny thing is that the pool that allows children has a swim up bar and full alcohol service. At the adult pool there is no bar or food unless you order it delivered. Why you would have a full service bar for kids is beyond me. The second most surprising thing was when the staff started banging outside the villa every morning around 7 am. They stock some wood cabinets with towels etc for the maids. They bang the cabinets like they are bongos. Needless to say it is extremely loud, so don't expect to sleep in. Throughout our two week journey we stayed at 5 different hotels. I always judge hotels on the value of the experience they provide my wife and I. For those reason I would rate this place at three stars since there is definite room for improvement.

Review:   My wife and I honeymooned here in February. It was our third stop in the Tahitian Islands and a great way to end a wonderful vacation. The overwater bungalow looking out at Bora Bora was fantastic. Extremely spacious with plenty of room to relax and feel at home. The room was a little dated and could definitely use some improvements. We had some power issues and were met with some rather unfortunate weather. The butler staff was all very friendly and helpful. At times they were a bit overwhelmed, but they did their best to keep up with our requests. They provided covered golf cart transportation around the resort during the rain which helped us get to dinner with dry clothes. They provided us with laundry service and each morning would deliver us coffee, French press or hot chocolate right to our room. The hot chocolate was absolutely delicious. The staff around the pool and recreation area did the best they could to keep guests entertained as days of rain continued. By far our favorite part of the trip there was Lagoon Restaurant. The service and food was the greatest we have ever experienced. We even got to meet the chef. It is worth the trip from Boston to Bora Bora just to eat there. The hotel was not without its flaws, it is very expensive, the pool and some of the rooms could use some updating, and some communication upgrades would be helpful between the butler staff. I made my displeasures known to management and they have since reached out to me and assured me that updates were already taking place. We did notice while we were there they were replacing a number of the roofs. Management also felt bad that we were not 100% satisfied and have gone above and beyond to make their apologies known, to which we are grateful.

Review:   The St. Regis in Bora Bora is on a complete other level of luxury. If you have ever seen the movie Couples Retreat (which was filmed there) you have an idea of what it looks like but it doesn't do it justice. The water is incredibly blue and it is just Incredibly peaceful. Food is amazing, with an incredible breakfast buffet. You have access to three different restaurants, as well as the pool bar area. One thing to note is this place is expensive, which shouldn't come as a surprise. Cocktails run around $20 -$30, with entrees for lunch and dinner being between $30 - $50+. The good thing is that portions are big, so you can split them and be satisfied. Rooms are amazing, with some of the upgraded rooms getting their own plunge pool. If you don't get an upgraded room, ask for one in the low 300's so you're far away from the pool area. Good number of excursions available, so something for everyone. Getting to the hotel does require a boat trip which you have to get through the hotel, and it's $130/person. This hotel has probably ruined hotels for my wife and I, but it was totally worth it. Every part of our stay was incredible and very memorable.

Review:   I stayed here with my family and friends back in February. It was a vacation we splurged on, so I am intentionally writing this review nearly 6 months later so I can emphasize how worth it was to stay at the St Regis. Here we are almost half a year later and this is still the place that my wife and friends and I cannot stop talking about. It was paradise in every sense of the word. Right from the beginning, the staff here is incredible and so polished. I still remember names of some of the amazing staff, from Stacey in reservations who went above and beyond to make sure we had a seamless check-in experience, Olivier the front manager who was incredibly professional and not only surprised us with a very generous spg platinum upgrade but spoke to us as if we were close friends or family and got my baby daughter a classic St Regis stuffed turtle which she still loves to play with. There was also Novelya our butler who made sure we had everything needed and was amazing, and then of course the pool guy Reuben who was so funny and friendly and provided just stellar service when getting us drinks and food. Every interaction with the staff was so warm and I was amazed by how well they took the effort to know not only my name, but also the names of my friends and family members. The hotel itself is beyond beautiful. it is in my opinion the best location in Bora Bora particularly because of the view of the Mountain which cannot be beat. The villas are all spacious and private, yet still manage to be decorated well and incorporate beautiful art. Like I mentioned my wife and baby were traveling with my close friends and their baby. We received a generous spg platinum upgrade to the 2 bedroom overwater villa for our last couple nights which was the coolest "hotel room" if you can even call it that, any of us have ever stayed in. We all are dying to go back There are so many other great things I could say about the St Regis, but I'll leave it at I'm convinced it will extremely difficult for another place to top the experience we had here. If you are on the fence about where to stay, just stay here. I promise you will not regret it. We were so sad to leave, my wife even started to tear up haha. We cannot wait to come back and experience it all again!
