Bora Bora, Tahiti
Pinch yourself. This place is real. Like walking into a postcard, St. Regis, with its over-water bungalows, lagoon awash in every hue of turbulent blue, and views of craggy, emerald-colored Mount Otemanu, delivers the dream. Part of the South Pacific's Polynesian Islands, Bora Bora comprises a series of islets. On one, is your hotel. Arrive at this resort, fully equipped with swimming pools, restaurants, spa and bars, and you won't muster the energy to leave. Who would? Order breakfast delivered by canoe, jump off your deck right into the indigo-kissed water or build sandcastles beneath the Coconut palms.
