Early evening in Bora Bora, French Polynesia. This week's featured Harper Auction is a three-night stay in The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort (a $6,500 retail value) for an opening bid of $2,600.

From the Harper Collection: Grand resort in a lush compound on its own motu facing majestic Mount Otemanu. This 100-suite hotel offers the largest accommodations in French Polynesia, each overwater villa enhanced by a separate living room, lavish bath and large terrace featuring a dining gazebo and steps that descend into a deepwater lagoon. Most suites offer limited privacy, the windows and decks of the units looking directly at those of their neighbors. Other facilities include a comprehensive spa, two pools, a man-made beach and a gourmet restaurant under the auspices of international chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. The resort is designed to provide a reassuring self-contained cocoon, with all the familiar in-room comforts and electronic toys many Americans expect.
