Pacific Paradise: St. Regis Bora Bora Resort Gets a Makeover
After a devastating cyclone season in February in French Polynesia, the St. Regis Bora Bora Resort suffered some gnarly storm damage. But now-- after a big makeover-- the resort is back, ready for the summer season. Some of the finest accommodations in the South Pacific, the beach and overwater villas have been restored to their former splendor, their private pools boasting new glass tiles. With direct access to Bora Bora's powdery sands and turquoise waters, these digs are coveted by Hollywood stars (like Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban, Eva Longoria, and Tim Allen). Tastefully designed in exotic woods and marble, these villas also come with personal butler service. The resort's revamp includes a spa facelift, new Polynesian artwork around the main pool, and resculpted beaches.
PS. This is where the Vince Vaughn comedy, Couples Retreat, was filmed.
