Los Angeles, Calif. – November 17, 2020 – The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort announces the arrival of new General Manager, Mr. Emmanuel Richardet, to helm the team at the award-winning property in French Polynesia.

Emmanuel’s career began as a bellboy in Paris over 34 years ago, where he grew to become Concierge Clef d’Or before transitioning through multiple hotel departments including sales and marketing, food and beverage, and operations before earning his first General Manager title in Algarve, Portugal in 2007.

From there, Emmanuel served as the General Manager at the historic Westin Paris Vendome for four rewarding years. Most recently, he was the General Manager at Westin Turtle Bay in Mauritius, the winner of the Marriott Hotel of the Year, Africa in 2019.

Emmanuel brings a wealth of knowledge, decades of global leadership experience, and a new outlook to the five-star property in Bora Bora.

“I look forward to further discovering the richness of the Polynesian culture and will continue to weave the special culture into all we do here at the resort,” he said. “French Polynesia is a breath-taking destination unlike anywhere else in the world, and I look forward to sharing this slice of paradise with all who visit.”

The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort reopened 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.
