Ok, so, you come to Bora Bora, and you get what you pay for...all we wanted was beautiful views, access to the island, clear water, food and drinks, and friendly service. We got all that. Sure the room is a bit daggy, but we are in one of the most beautiful places in the world with amazing sunset views. I... More

We were lucky enough to catch an earlier inland flight to Bora Bora and the staff at the Sofitel arranged for an early pickup and our room was ready within 30 minutes of our arrival! The rooms were very spacious and the beds were awesome! The pool was gorgeous as well as the view and the property was well kept... More

We arrived today and we're excited to get our luxury overwater bungalow. When we arrived, we were given a bungalow 5 feet from the shore!!! Plus, 95 percent of the view from the room is of other bungalows. I asked to be moved and I was told they were full and there was nothing they can do. So we get... More

After staying at the Sofitel in Moorea this resort in Bora Bora was highly disappointing! The food was terrible! Flies swarming around the food for breakfast. The same breakfast EVERY day! The presentation of the food lacked appeal and the food taste was not good as well. The best thing about this resort was the beauty of the view and... More

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!

Thank you for all those beautiful comments. The Sofitel Marara Beach is the only Resort in Bora Bora with daily entertainments and cultural events. It is on the main island, very close to « Matira Beach » which is one of the most beautiful beaches in the World. The Sofitel Private Island, facing the Sofitel Marara is on a «... 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
