It’s a good thing St. Regis Bora Bora has private massage rooms. So private, in fact, that you’re taken by your masseuse to your own island.
That was the good news for Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban who honeymooned at this five-star resort in 2006. The bad news is Eva Langoria and hubbie Tony Parker had also chosen this resort on Motu Ome, one of the small Pacific islands that constitute Bora Bora, for a summer getaway. Located on 44 acres, this tropical paradise was also featured in Vince Vaughn’s recent groaner, Couples Retreat.
Luckily, the resort is a thousand times better than the movie. The resort has 30 bungalows and 70 1,550 and up-square-foot villas, all spread out over the lagoon where octopi, tropical fish and turtles swim. Many of the villas have Jacuzzis and private swimming pools (thank goodness, for the honeymooners).
Activities at this private resort include jeep safaris, diving, hiking, sailing and shark and ray feeding, absolute must-do’s.
