WOW ! I have always wanted to go to Bora Bora and I was not disappointed! My husband and I chose Sofitel Private Island for our 20th Wedding anniversary and it was amazing. The over water bunglow was magnificent - having direct access to the clear blue ocean was amazing. The food was of a very high quality and the... More

We absolutely loved our stay and feel that we picked out the perfect place for us. We requested a bungalow with as much privacy as possible and were given #112. It was perfect. Very private at the end of the pier with deep water for swimming and snorkeling. The service was excellent too. From the daily mini-bar stocking to the... More

It takes a rare place for me to me blown away by the experience - the Sofitel Private Island has done just that. If you're reading this, you've probably already decided on Bora Bora, so I won't comment on it as a destination. So why the Sofitel Private Island? Some key points: It's relatively small It's 12 years+ only It... More

The hotel, the island, the staff were phenomenal. Exceptional service. Breathtaking views. We had a romantic dinner that truly surpassed my expectations. The staff was very good at helping coordinate activities and making reservations. The menu options at the Private Islamd were limited. However, I recommend exploring the main hotel Sofitel Marara which is just a quick shuttle ride away.... More

First class, top notch accommodations. It was pleasantly quiet - perhaps a little too serene, but the scenery just makes you forget about any concerns that you might have. Your thoughts will quickly go towards wondering how you found yourself to be at a place of such wonderful splendor. The private island is definitely the way to go. Everything from... More

Our Honeymoon was flawless from departure to return. The Sofitel Private Island is gorgeous and we absolutely loved our luxury over water bungalow. It was bigger than we expected and the water underneath is so clear. The staff is genuinely service oriented and everyone we met was just lovely there. I read a lot of bad reviews on the food...

The hotel is super clean, it has the best view in my opinion and the staff was extremely nice and efficient, Antoine was a very nice host. I totally recommend this place! The drinks at the bar were also really good, there were some baby sharks at the beach which I found amazing =) @ livemoretravelmore

The water is perfect for beginner Snorkeler like myself. Right next to... More

Spent 5 days on the Private Island and everything was excellent on the island. Both Hideko and Antoine at the front desk were a pleasure and the F&B staff was excellent as well. The beach areas were nice as was the restaurant - the only thing missing was a pool as you had to take a boat back to the... More

Was there for my honeymoon. Perfect climate, view, spa (shiatsu), beach dinner, sunset package, reef, fishes, cannoning, snorkeling... etc . Even the breakfast is nice. I couldn't say how much i wish to go back for another vacation. Thanks for all the friendly staff too. Well-worth the awards it's received.
