We enjoyed our stay very much. Unlike other resorts on the island Sofitel Private Island doesn't has as many bungalows over water so you get an even more exclusive feeling. One of the best spots on the island to do snorkel, what they call, "the acuarium" is just on the back of the island so you don't need to move.... More

We loved Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island and had a wonderful stay. The spacious, over water bungalow felt more like a high-end holiday home than a hotel room and the super-king-size bed was to die for. The resort has it's own coral island, two beautiful sandy beaches, a good restaurant and a really good bar with two for one cocktails... More

My husband and I recently stayed here for 10 nights in an over-water bungalow. This location and hotel is absolutely stunning. No words can describe how beautiful the scenery is. We loved our bungalow so much; being able to swim straight off the deck was just so special. And the room was fantastic - just what we expected. But we... More

This is a fabulous little island! My husband and I absolutely loved it there. It was very romantic and secluded - we only saw a few other people there during our stay. We had lots of fun kayaking around the island, relaxing in the hammocks by the water, and hiking up to the top of the island to enjoy the... More

I have wanted to go to Bora Bora for about 30 years and being a special birthday this year, we decided to go. I chose this hotel because it was away from all the other resorts and it was small compared with most other resorts. It also looked great in the photos I saw before we went. Also, no kids... More

The facility is well maintained, the staff is excellent (goes way beyond what was expected), the food was well prepared and presented in a very beautiful manner. If you are looking for a location for a special event this is it. Should be on your "bucket list". Treated like royalty for our 50 Anniversary.
