The gorgeous and breathtaking natural envrionment is complemented superbly by the attentive, warm and welcoming service at this marvelous resort! The staff (Guillame, Max, Sebastian, Riati, Moe, Moea, and Maileti--just to name a few) fully delivered when it came to exceptional care and friendliness. The grounds are amazing. Our overwater bungalow was smartly decorated,plush and comforatable, immaculate and very spacious. We really enjoyed riding the resort bikes around the grounds and going to and from our bungalow (you do have to leave a bag or towel on your bikes when you park them or they will dissapear!). The food overall, although extremely expensive (about $32 for a pizza) was always delicious. Room service is actually top-restaurant quality. The included breakfast was good (fresh fruit, cheeses,cereals, pastries, various fruit drinks, etc) but did get a little redundant towards the end. This resort does have an in-house baker, so count on having croissants, baguettes and even pizza crust to die for! We had several meals right on the beach at the resort, and our romantic sunset dinner in a cabana on the beach was truly memorable. The sushi at the Japanese restaurant was pretty good. My husband went fishing wiht a local and brought back some "varo" which the restaurant chef graciously offered to prepare and serve us one night for dinner. The comfort-level at the resort is so good that it's sometimes hard to leave, but for a change of pace, one can take the free boat shuttle to the mainland and have a simple, tastey lunch at Aloe or dinner at the popular Bloody Mary's. As part of our Anniversary package we had a couples Polynesian massage that was fantastic! The spa area is very serene and inviting. A bit dissapointed, however, that some of the services are not available due to future remodeling (sauna, steam). The beach area is gorgeous. The sand is powdery soft and clean. We appreciated having easy access to the beach goodies: kayaks, hobie sailboat, paddleboards, etc. and the beach guys are very helpful and friendly. The lounge chairs are always clean and readily available. We initially waivered between the St. Regis and another major resort before booking but are very pleased that we went with this one. We booked through Pacific-For-Less and are truly grateful for having done this. Claudia and her staff were invaluable in helping us create an incredible and memorable anniversary trip of a liefetime. Their recommendation to take a Jet Ski/ATV tour was spot-on and allowed us to learn so much about Bora Bora, and the Polynesian culture. Our tour guide, Louis, took us to his "motu" and showed us how he lives off his land. He served us fresh coconut water, gave us the sweetest, most gigantic grapefruit ever and let us snack on bananas right off the tree. Meeting his friendly pet pig, Popoti, was a highlight too! Our Love Boat photo tour, also recommended by PFL, was beyond amazing. This truly is a must-do for any couple vacationing in Bora Bora. Our guide and photographer, Vincent, gave us so much insight about the island, and took us to some jaw-dropping, awesome spots not generally seen by most tourists. The snorkeling portion of our tour was spectacular. We returned from that tour love-struck by the island, feeling like we gained a friend, plus got a disc on the spot with 300+ pictures of that entire experience (including really cool underwater shots). We feel so blessed to have been able to sink our feet in the Bora Bora sand, take delicious, refreshing dips in the crystal clear water right off our bungalow and to have met such lovely people (fellow vacationers and staff). If you are going to travel this far, I would recommend staying at a place that compliments and fulfills what a dream vacation should be. For us, there was nothing better than St. Regis. I can't really think of anything negative about the resort, other than maybe some of the bungalows look like they could use some TLC on the outside (a few broken shutters here and there, some wood fading). Overall, an experience of a lifetime!
