Full accommodation information

Soak up the sights of Mount Otemanu while wandering the lagoon-side grounds of the St. Regis Bora Bora Resort, a private bay hideaway of huge overwater casitas and beachside villas, a signature Clarins Spa and several globally inspired, fine-dining restaurants dotted around the shoreline.

This highly sophisticated island escape feels notably grown-up, from its very design to the scope of the spa and beauty salon, exquisite dining options and lagoon-style swimming pools split over multiple levels, surrounded by daybeds; a great getaway for romance-seeking couples and families alike.

Make one of the Overwater Villas or Beach Suites your home in Bora Bora for a while and you’ll be treated to spacious sundecks – some with private pools, gardens, immediate sea or beach access and decadent interiors too. Have your St. Regis butler arrange a day trip, spa treatment, dinner reservation or anything else you could possibly need, and if travelling with little ones then rest assured they’ll have plenty of fun in the kids club while you take some time out at the swim-up bar, perhaps. Add to the mix watersports, tennis, a Lagoonarium and signature St. Regis service, all combining to create the ultimate Bora Bora beach retreat.

The overwater and beachfront villas are really something to behold at the St. Regis Bora Bora. Weaving modern luxuries together with locally inspired design, they feel at home in this stunning island setting yet provide so many thoughtful touches to make your stay as comfortable as possible. There are bathrobes, slippers, Bose speakers, twin sinks, tubs, separate showers, minibars, plasma TVs, and even butler service to ensure that everything runs smoothly for you.
