Luxury escapes to Hawaii and Tahiti are unsurprisingly blissful, but at these resorts – ranging from The St. Regis Bora Bora to the gorgeous Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach – paradise is elevated that much more.
The St. Regis Bora Bora
Stay in the largest overwater villas in the South Pacific, starting at 1,550 square feet. Each villa features unique amenities, from whirlpools, plunge pools, to spacious gazebos. Head to the beach and reserve a secluded beach villa surrounded by lush palms and endless paradise.
Sail off and explore pure paradise for yourself, heading out into postcard-perfect Bora Bora. Snorkel with black tip reef sharks; swim in the property’s Lagoonarium; stay fit in the state-of-the-art fitness center; and, of course, reach new heights of tranquility at the spa. Try a signature cocktail at the swim-up bar and indulge in Polynesian-inspired and international cuisine at the four restaurants on-site. Everything – from the dining to the villas – offers breathtaking backdrops of paradise, perfect for destination weddings, honeymoons, and romantic retreats.
Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach
After an incredible renovation, Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach brings a brand-new experience along the shores of one of America’s most stunning beaches, redefining Hawaiian chic. The lobby alone is an astounding sight to behold – home to a 280,000-gallon three-story Oceanarium with over 500 types of marine life and coral. The resort features 839 refurbished rooms, including eight spacious suites, all with unobstructed ocean and Diamond Head views. Dining options are elevated with on-property masterpieces like Morimoto Asia and Momosan Waikiki, spearheaded by celebrity chef Masaharu Morimoto.
For a cool cocktail, hang out on the pool deck featuring a bar, comfortable cabanas and the only infinity pool on Waikiki Beach. To lift your sense of serenity and to keep in shape, the resort has partnered with Island Club and Spa – Honolulu’s luxury fitness and rejuvenation company – to bring a 6,000 square foot space with Oceanarium views, equipped with cardio equipment, tennis courts, full spa, and more.
Hotel Sofitel Moorea la Ora Beach Resort
Set on a crystal-clear lagoon with white sand beaches and jutting up against a stunning green mountain that reaches up into the clouds, Sofitel Moorea la Ora Beach Resort is beyond breathtaking.
Pure Tahitian paradise, the resort features 112 luxury bungalows, including overwater bungalows for the ultimate French Polynesian experience. Blending French-inspired refinement throughout the property, the architecture and level of service mixes French elegance with a tropical ambiance. The Polynesian-inspired architecture is both sophisticated and comfortable, designed to endlessly offer views of unrivaled paradise, including the beautiful beach, turquoise lagoon, or of the endless horizon from the infinity pool. After you’re done feasting your eyes on the scenery and architecture, the cuisine is also something to savor.
The property features two restaurants and two bars. Led by executive chef Marc Lintanf, both restaurants place guests in stunning atmospheres to pair perfectly with beautifully-designed dishes. At Pure, enjoy a meal in a contemporary setting with a relaxed vibe and panoramic views on the lagoon and the island of Tahiti. The restaurant K offers an elevated dining experience with equally great views in a more intimate, romantic setting.
