Vacation Packages: The setting of the new Vince Vaughn - Jon Favreau comedy Couples Retreat is idyllic even if the characters get themselves into some rather sticky situations. That's because the movie was shot on location at the lush The St. Regis Bora Bora resort in the South Pacific, a favorite celebrity getaway since it opened in 2006. Nicole Kidman and Keith honeymooned there while Eva Longoria and Tony Parker and others have enjoyed its tropical splendors. The resort is offering an exclusive Couples Retreat package celebrating the film's opening and continuing through May 31, 2010.
The package offers guests a four or five night stay in a Premiere Overwater Villa where Vaughn, Favreau, Malin Akerman, Kristen Davis, Jason Bateman and Kristen Bell's characters stay in the movie, as well as other experiences seen on the big screen including couples yoga on the lush 44-acre property's pristine beaches, massages at its world class Spa Miri Miri, outrigger canoe lessons, a jet ski tour in the lagoon's pristine crystal waters, and dinner at Lagoon, the St. Regis Bora Bora's Jean-Georges Vongerichten restaurant. Of course the resort features signature St. Regis services including 24-hour concierge, room service and the legendary Butler Service.
