We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. On arrival to the bora bora airport. The Sofitel boat driver refused to take us to the hotel. He basically told us his boat transfer is expensive you better take an island shuttle. Surprised by his comments we made our own way to the main island. Once there I called the hotel... More

The Sofitel Marara Resort is one of the best deal in Bora Bora. It is no doubt that Bora Bora is an expensive place, but believe me - it worth the money! The unparalleled beauty of the island and its lagoon...still under its influence. The hotel is located on the main island and not on a 'motu'. It has all... More

When arrived at hotel, was received by welcome person, problem was they spoke French, they didn't split the English people and the French people, so when we were... More

Bora bora is a gorgeous, secluded gem. There is not getting around it. The multiple flights, long un-airconditioned airport waits, and boat rides that it takes to get there are totally worth it. Once you arrive at the Sofitel, you are welcomed with a fruity drink, seashell necklace and with one swift jump from your bungalow into the piercing blue,... More

After a dismal and chaotic start we eventually found the atmosphere at this Resort to be quite relaxing. There was no 'pressure' to do anything at any time other than what you wanted when you wanted. The one major 'disappointment' was probably our 'welcome'. The Staff member at the airport was awesome, and between her and the boat skipper, we... More

We went back in 2009. I have never had a better trip .. It was something that you can't even describe until you have been there.. We stayed half in beach bungalow and half on over water hut. It was so relaxing and AMAZING to see. The snorkelling was so much fun. It is expensive so if you don't want... More

We signed up for the eco-tour and we did not ever expect what we got. The tour guide Tau picked us up at the resort at 9:15, he then picked up another group and we were on our way. It was my 17 year old and 7 year old daughters that were with me. Our first stop was a shallow... More

We booked a pick up from the airport however on arrival the hotel rep. told us that it was more economical to take the Air Tahiti ferry and that she would arrange for a taxi to meet us at the jetty. The taxi fare was then 2500 CHF compared to 9000 per person on the hotel boat. We were well... More

Thank you for your comment. The idea of having our Sofitel private boat for a beautiful ride of 20 mn between the airport located at the north of the island to our Sofitel down the south is to start your stay with a magnifique experience, riing the lagoon of Bora Bora, not worry about luggage transferts, finding a taxi and...
