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 Group Meetings: Demand vs. Supply

It is a great time for hotel group meetings. It is expected that once again this sector will grow by 5-10% in 2020, partly due to the increasing value of in-person group meetings. Because people now spend so much time in front of their screens, face-to-face interactions have become a more treasured commodity in our modern world. Plus, the use of social media reinforces the value of engagement, discussion, conversation, and networking - all areas where group meetings shine. Despite this rosy outlook, there is a concern that demand for meetings far exceeds the supply of suitable venues and hotels. There are very few "big box" properties with 500-plus rooms and extensive conference facilities being built, and this shortage of inventory could pose a serious challenge for meeting planners. In addition to location concerns, the role of the meeting planner has also evolved significantly. Planners are no longer just meeting coordinators - they are de facto travel agents. Cultural interactions, local dining, experiential travel, and team-building activities are all now a part of their meeting mix. Plus, they have to cater to evolving tastes. Millennials are insisting on healthier venues and activities, and to meet their demands, hotels are making yoga breaks, fresh-pressed juices, plant-based diets, state-of-the-art gyms, and locally-sourced menus available. Millennials are also insisting that meeting venues practice Corporate Social Responsibility, which means upholding sustainable and ethical values; investment in the local community; health and well-being of employees; and general business practices that reflect being good citizens of the planet. Finally, there is a growing trend to merge meetings with other local events, such as music festivals, sporting events, and cultural attractions. The December Hotel Business Review will report on issues relevant to group meetings and will document what some hotels are doing to support this part of their operations.
