Spa Profile: Miri Miri Spa by Clarins at The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort
Located in the beautiful South Pacific, St. Regis Bora Bora Resort is the ultimate luxury getaway. With the largest overwater suite villas in the islands, in addition to its famous St. Regis Butler Service, the resort is one of the world’s top honeymoon and vacation destination. It is also home to Miri Miri Spa by Clarins, a 13,000 square-foot sanctuary located on its own private island in the resort’s lagoonarium, offering breathtaking views of majestic Mount Otemanu. In Tahitian, “Miri Miri” means two things: it is the name of a plant and also the word for “caress.”
Polynesia, Asian, and Clarins Touch treatments are provided in five decadent private rooms, and guests can enjoy a shared relaxation room overlooking the lagoon after treatments. Additional services include water therapy treatments in the form of either a relaxing essential-oil scented bath or an open-air Vichy shower, as well as beauty treatments such as facials, manicures and pedicures, and makeup facilities.
