Well where does one start, St Regis Bora Bora has won numerous awards placing the property currently as one of the finest resorts in the world. With such reviews and professional high praise we chose St Regis as our Honeymoon destination in late April 2014.
The physical location with stunning views of " mystical" Mt. Otemanu, the spacious size of villas, the highly regarded personal butler service, lots of activities, and choice of on site quality food outlets were our main core reasons for selecting St Regis. In ALL regards our stay experience exceeded our pre set very high expectations. So much so we even extended our initial Honeymoon stay. We left St Regis with many tears of happiness on May 23rd, 2014 having had an amazingly relaxing and pampered time.
When you have an extended stay in any resort you will likely uncover service weakness, have a poor meal or experience some other mis adventure. We DID NOT, service and quality of food plus food selection remained at five star levels everyday. Our butler, Konstantin, deserves much credit for making our stay so memorable however there were many, many other St Regis staff members who also showed outstanding customer service. We enjoyed the friendly 'Ia Orana' greeting from everyone we passed on our daily strolls around the grounds, from gardeners, housekeepers, wait staff or butlers, it made us feel part of the community.
Our entire stay was an extremely positive one, the ease of extending our time at St Regis was handled with unbelievable professionalism. A few tips about St Regis Bora Bora, make sure you have at least a breakfast plan, food is expensive everywhere in French Polynesia and at any of the five star hotels even more so. Breakfast is served in the main restaurant, Te Pahu, which is also open seven days a week for lunch and dinner. Te Pahu has an extensive breakfast menu included in breakfast package in addition to the buffet selections. The daily evening meal specials at Te Pahu can also be quite outstanding and at more or less reasonable prices considering the location. We had lobster one night, scallops another and New Zealand lamb on the third night. Any of these "daily chef specials" could have been served with critical acclaim in any top restaurant in the world.
We also ate five times at the much acclaimed signature Lagoon Restaurant and equal number of times at the Japanese and Italian on site restaurants. Lagoon is indeed a world class restaurant with an outstanding wine selection. Even their wine by the glass is memorable. The sushi at the Japanese restaurant Sushi Take is fresh everyday and difficult to believe how it could be any better. The Italian restaurant, the newest offering at St Regis, is also good but still establishing itself amongst the outstanding food services already offered. Must not forget the pool/ beach side lunch service. Very traditional American lunch time food for the most part, super fries and large salads plus burgers, club sandwiches and the like plus offerings from the room service menu. For us the lunch servings were very large so we simply ordered one order and the kitchen easily split onto two plates. Some days we were so full from a late breakfast we missed lunch.
So in summary we would give St Regis Bora Bora the highest rating possible, indeed bonus points if we could.
