My husband and I spent our honeymoon at the Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island. We started out in an over-water bungalow, and were later upgraded to The Villa (I'm still not sure why, but I'll take it!). The rooms are spacious and very nice, turn down service each night, and I don't think it's possible to have a blocked view anywhere on the island. During our stay the weather was gorgeous (end of June-Beginning July).
The staff are wonderful. Extremely courteous, and we were treated as if we were the only couple at the hotel. They are also extremely helpful with organizing and recommending various excursions, in the event that basking in the sun loses it's glamour, lol. Some of these included an Eco Tour (if you go, DO IT!), which allows you to snorkel, swim with sharks and stingrays; several hiking options; safari tours, etc.
The food is quite good as well. Nice breakfast buffet with plenty of options; lunch and dinner menus were also quite good.
