Royal Estate at the St. Regis Bora Bora Resort

Terena Thyne Eisner

The Resort: Designed to resemble an opulent Polynesian village, the St. Regis Bora Bora Resort consists of 100 over-water and beachfront villas surrounded by a turquoise-blue lagoon. Bora Bora’s main island is just 15 minutes away by boat, but most guests are happy staying put at this multi-island resort, where staff members use the local greeting iaorana, arrange activities such as snorkeling in the lagoon, and schedule treatments at the 13,000-square-foot spa, which sits on its own island.

The Villa: The palatial 13,000-square-foot Royal Estate occupies yet another island, located five minutes by foot via a wooden walkway and bridge from the St. Regis’ main restaurants and attractions. Polynesian artwork adorns the estate’s three pavilions, which encircle a swimming pool and include three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a full kitchen, and a private spa area (complete with a hot tub and hammam). Dedicated butlers and housekeepers are on call around the clock, and personal chefs and additional staff are available on request.

The Highlight: Dinner by candlelight on Royal Estate’s private beach, followed by a Polynesian Tamure dance and fire show.

The Price: $15,000 per night for as many as 10 guests. +689.607.898, www.stregis.com
