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

This was our second time staying here and it had been 15 years but not much has changed. The hotel is one of the most private and beautiful that you will find in French Polynesia. The staff is very professional and helpful. The rooms, especially the over water bungalows, have some of the most beautiful views you will ever see.

We enjoyed our every moment of stay in sofitel private island. The location is the best: wonderful view of motu , more than 5 kinds of blue colors of sea. Convenient to go to mainland. And I saw a queue of sting ray swimming passing by our bungalow on our first day . And also so enjoyed swimming under the... More

The place it's very good, but I was a little bit disappointed with the pick up at the airport because I was the last one to go to the hotel, and after that the check in was late. I complained and they give me a room. The hotel it's perfect, but because of that I was a little bit sad.

It was the middle part of our Honeymoon, so I booked the best over water bungalow they had. I was not disappointed ! It was fantastic, very well appointed bugalow, lovely bath with views across the lagoon, large comfortable bed and of course spectacular views across the lagoon and to the main island with its magnificant peaks. The amenities were... More

We stayed eight nights in March 2015 as a couple on Private Island in Room 111 (an over-water bungalow on the far right hand side as you're walking off the island). We were amazed to discover that the photos you see online are the same in real life. This place is truly beautiful. The hotel is perfect for honeymooners (indeed,... More

First and foremost, this is exceptionally beautiful place, and overall the best we have seen! All colours, different shades of blue & turqoise waters, views to lagoon and mountain are really spectacular, as is the sunrise, and sunset. You can optionally eat at Private Island or at Marara across when you stay at Private island, where we had awesome lunch;... More

The site and grounds were spectacular. The overwater bungalows were spacious, with nice amenities and very romantic. The service personnel and staff were very good The food was decidedly mediocre- over cooked fish, tough meat, over cooked vegetables etc. Peculiar things occurred- despite an inclusive minibar they refused to give use two local beers at a time- one Budlight and...

We have just returned from a 6 night stay on the private island. We stayed in an over water bungalow (no 126) and we opted for the dinner and breakfast package at the private island restaurant. So where do I start? I can't recommend this hotel enough, it was perfect for the relaxing secluded and special holiday we had planned.... More
