I have just spent two weeks at this fabulous place. In my opinion, the private island has the best location in Bora Bora. On one side you have the coral gardens and the thousands of gorgeous tropical fish. On the other side, below the heavenly over-water bungalows, there are coral bommies also teeming with fish, including my favourite Picasso trigger... More

This place was awesome. Private. Great view. Over-the-water bungalows are better than Le Meridien or others on that part of the Lagoon because Sofitel is nearer to reefs so more fishes are seen. On the other side is the coral garden that most tour boats bring their patrons. It's just a short walk, swim, or kayak away. It's a short... More

We stayed in a Luxury overwater bungalow for three nights. The island was totally private with magnificent view. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Wi-fi was good enough. Only one problem was the super expensive meals. We tried the restaurant and bar meals but they served same menus.

From the time we arrived we knew this was going to be soooooo goooooooood ! If you want total privacy and pampering or catch the on demand shuttle boat with Tino the Captain to the mainland, you can have it all here. The property was beautiful and some the best diving is right on the other side of the island.... More

We had stayed in Bora Bora last year at Le Meridian and wanted to try somewhere different this year. We could not have been more pleased with our stay. The location is perfect for access to the mainland, markets, restaurants, and activities, and the Coral Gardens which is the best snorkel spot is at the end of your island -... More

OK, this is the first time I write a comment for the hotel because I think this is truly worth my time. This hotel is amazing! I love it! My wife and I stayed there for 5 nights on the OWB in May (Private Island) and we both loved it. Arrival: We arrived at the airport and were greeted with... More

Where to start...firstly a big thankyou to Celeste & all of the wonderful staff at Sofitel Private Island for the most wonderful holiday we have ever had. Beautiful welcome, amazing food, wonderful staff & the most incredible overwater bungalow...the list does go on. There is not one complaint, we even loved the special touches left each day by room service.... More

When traveling to Bora Bora you already expect to spend a lot of money. You can stop searching because this is the ideal hotel in Bora Bora! First, it's Bora Bora... Therefore, you can't go wrong... no matter where you stay. Bora Bora is an amazing place and if you're spending time in your room while you're there I think... More

We stayed 2 nights and were rather disappointed. We've stayed in the Maldives & other islands in Tahiti where we had more privacy! These water bungalows don't have any privacy. We stayed in 122. We could see the terraces & pontoon of bungalows in front and to the side. I suggested that the hotel puts screens on the 2 right... More
