Celebrate French Polynesia Re-Opening at The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort

The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort

After closing to international visitors back in February, French Polynesia officially re-opened its borders earlier this month and the award-winning St. Regis Bora Bora Resort is celebrating liberation from lockdown with two rather fabulous new offers. Created for pandemic-weary travelers looking to celebrate the ‘lost year’ of 2020 now being firmly behind us, a bucket-list stay at this award-winning hideaway and one of the world’s leading luxury resorts is just what’s needed to help rejuvenate mind, body and spirit.

“We want guests to indulge themselves while enjoying the simple pleasure of life - the company of loved ones, abundant nature, delicious cuisine and warm welcoming Polynesian hospitality,” says Emmanuel Richardet, General Manager of The St. Regis Bora Bora, who is particularly excited about the resort’s newly launched Ultimate Bora Bora Reset. Designed to encompass “a healthy dose of wellness, dash of eco-exploration, taste of culture, and refreshing splash of celebration,” Richardet says it perfectly encapsulates everything that makes The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort so special.

Ultimate Bora Bora Reset

Designed to resemble a traditional Polynesian village, The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort comprises 90 overwater thatched-roof bungalows and beachfront villas surrounded by a turquoise-hued lagoon. As part of the Ultimate Bora Bora Reset groups of up to six family and friends can check in at the island's most coveted address: The Royal Estate Villa. Measuring a stately 13,000 square feet, the private compound features its own beach and house with three bedrooms, a professional kitchen, office den, plus a spacious outdoor terrace lounge with picture-perfect tropical lagoon views. All Ultimate Bora Bora Reset reservations include dedicated butler service, a personal chef, and yoga instructor.

While stays can start with a spa consultation to create a customized wellness program at the Iridium Spa alongside daily yoga classes, guests can recharge by getting back to nature too. Options include helping the resident gardening expert plant tropical foliage such as pineapple trees and Tahitian gardenias or joining the marine life specialist on a snorkeling tour to learn about the exotic sea creatures living in the resort’s Lagoonarium, a protected underwater sanctuary teeming with colorful fish and marine life.

Cultural experiences are also highlighted within the package, including a private Polynesian performance and dinner featuring local delicacies. For families, the Kids Club keeps little ones busy while mom and dad can enjoy some “me time” perhaps with a Champagne sabering or sunset sail aboard the resort’s private Catamaran. Rates start at $17,000 per night not inclusive of taxes and fees. For more information or to enquire about making a booking email

Work from Bora Bora 

With working-from-home having morphed into work-from-anywhere, setting up an office in paradise has never been easier or looked as good. With rates starting at USD 1,200 per night for stays of five nights or more, the Work from Bora Bora package includes a pre-arrival consultation to plan for business and leisure needs, roundtrip Bora Bora airport transfers and choice of accommodation in a Garden Suite, Beach Front or Overwater Villa.

Other perks that will make anyone the envy of their office mates back home include an IT Butler (to help set-up the remote office and stay connected), plus a daily power breakfast and nightly three-course dinner at restaurants including Lagoon by Jean Georges, the Asian-inspired BamBoo, or Italian Far Niente.
