The private muto was absolutely the best six days in the south pacific. You are just cut off from the outside. It really gives you the full experience of being in the French Polynesian island. We were able to watch the best reef fish on the back side of the island. Lots trigger fish.

We were extremely pleased with the Sofitel Private Island, and our only complaint is that we only had one day there. We were greeted by someone blowing a conch shell while the porter played the ukulele. They immediate gave us a coconut, lei, and offered to take our picture. Check-in was effortless, and we had a wonderful lunch while luggage... More

Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island had so much potential however it failed to deliver 5 or even 4 stars as a hotel which was a real shame. The hotel is situated in an amazing place on a private island with clear water and close to the Coral Garden. However the property is somewhat dated and there are obvious maintenance and... More

I can't say enough about how wonderful the staff is at Sofitel. They made our trip truly memorable. From the time we arrived, until the time we left they treated us so well. They truly make this resort special. We stayed in an overwater bungelow (128) and it was amazing. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5, is... More

Type of traveler: Don’t care about WiFi. Enjoy the local environment and food of the region being visited. Drink bottled beverages vs mixed drinks with ice. Why we chose the Private Island: - Quaint setting with few rooms - Proximity to Coral Garden - go when you want, other hotels charge - Amazing view for the price. - Free unlimited... More

We completed quite a bit of research before we decided to stay at the Sofitel Private Island. Our wish list included - secluded, beautiful location, snorkeling sites a moment away and not too many other guests. This footed the bill perfectly. From the moment you are greeted at the dock through to your farewell the staff are fantastic. Unfortunately there... More

Well, we had high expectations and we most certainly were not disappointed. From the first moment we stepped on the island we felt special. We opted for a bungalow in the tree tops rather than the expected overwater bungalow and so glad we did. Better views, more privacy, an ocean breeze every day and spectacular views from a height.
