The gentle breeze washing over your skin as you nonchalantly order your sixth rum drink served in a pineapple husk with a crazy straw…
Ah, vacation. You need one.
Allow us to point you in the direction of the St. Regis Bora Bora Resort. You might know this iconic retreat from TV specials or post cards or your honeymooning friend’s Facebook wall. With thatched roof bungalows sitting over the island’s pristine blue water, it’s quite a site.
It’s also the setting of Couple’s Retreat, that 2009 romantic comedy where hilarity and Speedos ensue. In the movie, an all-star cast led by Vince Vaughn and Jason Bateman unwittingly attend a rigorous marriage counseling seminar, but fortunately, they’ve still got time for massages, swimming with sharks and awkward yoga lessons.
But assuming you’re just going for a relaxing getaway, there’s a lot to look forward to at this stunning 44 acre resort. For example:
– Spend your nights in a private villa listening to the soothing waves.
– Drink something fruity at the swim-up bar.
– Dine at one of the several restaurants featuring everything from sushi to authentic Polynesian food to refined French cuisine by Jean Georges.
Yep, that has all the makings of a pretty great vacation.
Especially, if you’re in Buffalo right now.
