Activities at the St Regis Resort Bora Bora

Here's the range of activities at the St Regis Bora Bora. Many are complimentary. You can also book relaxing spa treatments and adventurous excursions. There are many things to do at the St Regis Bora Bora.

St Regis Bora Bora Beach

Swim in the calm, warm lagoon. Take reef shoes. There are some little pieces of coral in the water because you're staying on a coral reef. It's easy to get a sun lounge on the beautiful beach. (Most of the accommodation is over water bungalows and the on land villas have private pools.) Every hour or so you will be offered some free water, ice cream or fresh fruit.

Sail away for a mini lagoon adventure on the hobby cat. You'll see it's tall violet, pink, pumpkin and lime green sail skimming around the lagoon.

Paddle on the lagoon in a kayak, outrigger canoe or paddle boat. Relax on the sun lounges, Take a dip in the calm beach. My husband Tom took his swimming goggles and did laps between the beach and our overwater bungalow each day - the water is that calm.

St Regis Bora Bora Pool

Sun-bake in the tropical ambiance around the main pool.

 Cool off with a fruity Tahiti cocktail or ice cold Hinano at the swim-up bar.

St Regis Couples Pool

Laze about at the couples' pool, aptly named Oasis. This arty shaped pool is set in seclusion amongst lush gardens in the middle of the quiet motu which leads to the over water bungalows. It is a romantic adults-only pool with intimate sun lounge settings for two.

St Regis Lagoonarium

Snorkel in the large, salt water St Regis Lagoonarium that's been set up for guests. It's home to a wide variety of fish and can be entered by climbing down ladders from surrounding decks. We had an exhilarating time drifting around it's perimeter with the current. If you are a first time snorkeler, who wants to develop confidence mingling with sea life, this is a great place to begin.

Complimentary activities at the St Regis Bora Bora

  • Marine Biologist session in the Lagoonarium
  • Have a hit of tennis. The immaculate courts are tempting. But you are in the tropics, so have your swimming gear ready for when 'game, match' is called.
  • Work out in your own time at the 24 hour fitness center located in the sanctury of the spa.
  • Ride around the resort on the communal bicycles. The grounds are so vast that much of the time you will feel like you're the only ones there.
  • Have a game of billiards in the library.

Relax at Miri Miri Spa

Relax at the Miri Miri Spa

Want to indulge in the most relaxing activities at the St Regis Resort Bora Bora? Soak in a jacuzzi and try a gentle 'taurumi' Polynesian massage. The spa is a haven of peace and pampering. It's on a tiny islet that is surrounded by the Lagoonarium. 

The spa garden has a great view of Mt Otemanu.

Browse at the Pearl Boutique

There's a Robert Wan's black pearl shop in the resort. Ask the assistant to explain what makes black pearls so valuable. It's an interesting story. If you want to take home some Tahitian pearl jewelry (and what woman doesn't!) look around at a few black pearl shops before you buy.

Children's Activities at the St Regis Bora Bora

If you're planning a Bora Bora vacation with young children, the St Regis Resort has a designated play room for kids between 5 and 12 years. It provides entertaining activities for them.

'Must Do' Bora Bora Excursions

You can arrange outside excursions and activities at the St Regis Resort Bora Bora excursions desk, located in the reception building. There's a wide variety of day, and half day excursions with tour guides available, ranging from a submarine exploration of the Pacific Ocean to a romantic sunset cruise.

As there is less marine life in the Bora Bora lagoon around this resort (compared to some other areas of the island) make sure you take a tour that includes snorkeling in a coral garden.

Vacations to Bora Bora are a once in a lifetime experience for many, so get out of your luxurious villa and enjoy the unique environment too.
