this overwater bungalow of the week feature we like to mix in some good-value resorts with a few “fantasy” resorts that most of us couldn't dream of ever affording. This week we are highlighting what most people consider to be the finest resort in the South Pacific – the St. Regis Bora Bora Resort.
This 5-star deluxe property has 77 overwater villas along with 14 island rooms, and none of them is likely to be available for under US$1,000 per night. In fact, the Beachfront Villas are actually larger and more expensive than the (still huge) smallest class of overwater villas. So unlike nearly every other water resort, you can't try to book a cheap island room and hope for an upgrade to an overwater room.
