St. Regis Bora Bora Resort Set to Re-Open July 23

French Polynesia, Bora Bora. July 22, 2020

The award-winning St. Regis Bora Bora Resort will reopen to travelers on July 23, 2020 with new precautions in place to ensure guest safety remains the top priority, along with refreshed premium overwater villas and the newly rebranded Iridium Spa.

Guests arriving at the luxury resort will observe increased digital contactless communication, appropriate physical distancing, Plexiglas screens in reception areas, hand sanitizer dispensers throughout the resort, regular disinfection protocols applied across the property per Marriott guidelines, and staff members will wear protective equipment. Previously shared amenities such as bicycles or snorkeling equipment will be assigned for your use only during the duration of the stay. Temperature checks will be performed upon arrival at the Bora Bora airport, and all luggage will be sanitized by the resort staff before being taken to the boat.

"We are thrilled to reopen our resort in paradise to travelers, and we are taking every precaution to ensure that guests, along with our dedicated staff, remain safe as travel to and from Bora Bora resumes," said Richard Schilling, General Manager at St. Regis Bora Bora. "Guests will see necessary precautions made to protect their health and wellness while visiting, but the unmatched beauty of our destination and the world-renowned service at our beloved property remains the same."

The resort has also seen recent refreshments to its overwater villas, which entailed sanding and varnishing the floors, painting the walls and ceilings, and replacing the decks and roofs as needed. Select overwater villas also received updated interiors including new wall treatments, new furniture and new décor. A modern and lighter pallet was chosen to complement the stunning natural views surrounding the resort. The interiors were tastefully completed by Paris-based interior designer, Marc Hertrich & Nicolas Adnet (The Studio MHNA).

The on-site spa will reopen as Iridium Spa, the St. Regis' signature brand. Occupying its own island in the middle of a private lagoon at the resort, this unique 13,000-square-foot spa is a haven of sun-dappled serenity, where peace and rejuvenation go hand-in-hand. Its secluded beach, facing the majestic Mount Otemanu, is the perfect place to spend a day in calm contemplation.

Hotel Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
