19. St. Regis Bora BoraLearn more and book now
Two words (or, okay, one word, twice): Bora Bora. Enjoy some R&R in the French Polynesia island by booking one of the iconic bungalows perched on paradise’s turquoise lagoon waters. The signature bungalows feature pandanus-leaf thatched roofs and glass-bottom panels on the floors so you can spot the tropical fish inhabiting the waters beneath you. From your floating villa, you’ll soak up 360-degree views of the intensely blue waters. The St. Regis’ bungalows are on the secluded northeastern side of the lagoon, and the hotel group offers some of the largest and most luxe villas in the area. The shallow, clear waters are ideal for snorkeling and spotting schools of tropical fish. Or, you can explore via a rented jet ski or zen out and do your morning stretching or yoga routine on a paddleboard in the middle of the serene waters.
Book this room: To do this right, book the Royal Estate, where you’ll be surrounded by coral walls and your room will open to a private beach that overlooks the sparkling Bora Bora lagoon. A private chef is also available, or you can head to the famed Bloody Mary’s restaurant to order daily catch from local fishermen, cooked to order. When you’re ready to unwind, you’ve got plenty of watering holes to choose from at your island accommodations, including sunken bathtubs, rainshowers, and a whirlpool. The room also comes with a sauna, steam room, and private gazebo.
