Tour of the St. Regis Bora Bora Property

Upon arrival, our butler gave us a tour of the St. Regis property which was much larger than we expected.  The hotel has both overwater bungalows and beach bungalows with private plunge pools.  If we returned here, I might consider actually splitting my time between the overwater bungalows and the beach bungalows, which were also… Continue reading Tour of the St. Regis Bora Bora Property
