Independent review for St Regis Resort in French Polynesia
St Regis Resort is the new luxury addition to Starwood in tahiti islands and is located on a secluded motu island on the north western fringe of Bora Bora close to the airstrip. The resort features exquisitely appointed beach villas and overwater bungalows alongside a powdery white beach and turquoise lagoon. Overwater dining, a private island spa and roaming butlers make this the ultimate in resort living.
Overwater bungalows are situated on a man made spit extending from the main resort. All bungalows have identical interiors with private sun deck with outdoor shower and steps into the lagoon. Premium overwater bungalows face the main island of Bora with towering Mt Otemanu as the centre piece. Deluxe bungalows face the main resort across the lagoon. The only drawback with overwater bungalows is the the long distance between the bungalows and the main resort - quite a walk if you're allocated the furthermost bungalow over the lagoon!
The resort boasts three restaurants including an overwater dining room featuring Mediterranean and Pacific Fusion cuisine. There's a main pool with swim-up bar and a romantic adult pool with private daybeds. A delightful Spa resides on its own private lagoon island and offers a state-of-the-art fitness as well as a full range of massage services.
