Hello from the St. Regis Bora Bora

Located in French Polynesia, practically equidistant from California, Australia and Japan, the island country of Tahiti is known for its pristine azure waters and for the glut of honeymooners. In modern times, during the mid-19th century, the French colonized these islands and Marlon Brando made this area famous by buying an island and marrying a locale.
Today, Bora Bora is probably the most popular of all the Tahitian Islands and the St. Regis stands head-and-shoulders above all the others as the first property to have an overwater villa. Ten years later, the property has maintained its wonderful charm with 77 overwater villas and half-a-dozen-or-so "starter villas," which have pools but are not over the water.
I am so blessed to have been invited to join the small media group reviewing all the updates to the property, a decade after its opening. The above is a photos of the two bedroom villas, of which there are two, and below is a photo from the grounds of the Clarins Spa.
Not too shabby for a Thursday morning in Bora Bora. Time difference with D.C.? We're six hours behind.

Another aspect of the property I am very excited to review is the food-and-beverage program. So far we've managed to do the impeccable breakfast buffet. I had pineapple juice and champagne (hold the pineapple juice, ha!), as well as plenty of delicious hash browns, eggs with cheese and so much cheesy scrambled eggs, I can barely walk.
Below is the super cute sugar packet. Shaped in a heart ... TOO CUTE!!
Okay! Off to explore more of the property. More to come!!
