ISLAND TIME The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort Reaching 10 Years of Exotic Luxury

A

ny time you picture a trip to the South Pacific, you envision a scene out of a movie: Clear blue waters flanking powdery white sands and swaying palms, all near thatched huts and coral reefs with a colorful array of tropical fish. This vision turns into a reality once you visit The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort, one of the world’s most exclusive and unique resorts positioned optimally in French Polynesia. The resort opened in June 2006 and, this summer, has been celebrating its 10th anniversary. The concept pulls from Polynesia’s quintessential elements and has shaped the resort’s growth. Over its decade in existence, it attracted new restaurants specializing in Polynesian and Asianinfluenced dishes, added a spa, and started with a lagoonarium – a central body of water featuring tropical fish – that continues to expand. Now, any trip here takes you to 44 acres of lush landscapes, mostly composed of the same waters and sands you imagine, and the commanding presence of Mt. Otemanu in the background. In a recent statement about the resort’s anniversary, General Manager Richard Schilling said, “We have seen this resort grow into one of the top premier luxury resorts in the world over the course of the past 10 years, and I attribute our success to the dedicated, hard-working team, the delicious cuisine and variety of on-property restaurants and the unparalleled beauty and culture of French Polynesia. More and more travelers are discovering Bora Bora as a place to truly relax and unwind.” “Unwinding” is exactly what St. Regis is all about, with guests encouraged to relax and explore in an atmosphere of carefree elegance.
