A WOW environment rightfully rated five star doesn’t automatically cover the ratings for the upkeep of the accommodation of the hotel! Having taken a catamaran charter around the Island we arrived excited to finish our vacation on this little gem of a piece of land in the middle of the turquoise dream lagoon. A real sight upon arriving! But there...

We stayed for 3 days in February 2017. No doubt, the location of the hotel in the blue lagoon and the set-up of the bungalows is great. But a self called luxury hotel should provide luxurious service. Here this place failed. Not clean, not cared, not well maintained. Staff (apart from some exceptions) is not well trained and not attentive....

I stayed at the Sofitel as a part of a group of travel professionals sponsored by the Tahiti Tourism boards annual trip. This property was literally at the top of my list of recommended places to stay. The sunset from the hill top is unparalleled in Bora Bora. The fire dancers at dinner were really some of the best I...

The title says it all. You can view pictures and videos all day long, but until you are there, you have no idea what this place truly is. The water and the mountain backdrop will leave you breathless. It feels like you are on another planet! Though this is a resort, often times we felt like we were the only...

We stayed here in January and had the most fabulous time. We were in bungalow 129, which is at the end of the pier and has a direct view of Mount Otemanu and the sunset. I actually think this is the best bungalow of all, particularly if you are not the most confident swimmer. Some of the other bungalows stepped...

We stayed at the Sofitel private island at the end of January / begining of February 2017. Loved it! We had an over water bungalow, room 114, at the end of the pier.

My Partner and I stayed at Sofitel Private Island in Oct 2016, we really loved our stay here. The overwater bungalow was really beautiful. What I loved so much about this place was the fact it was on its own Island, it has the beautiful coral garden's around the back of the Island,which you can walk too or swim too....

Having seen some of the mixed reviews we were a little hesitant about our 7 night stay. We need not have worried. Our arrival and transfer from the airport was smooth, effortless, and with a very warm welcome at the arrival jetty. The location of the over water bungalow was excellent (room 124) with all the amenities required. The room...

This has to be one of the world's best places to visit. The over water rooms are fabulous. You can dive into the warm crystal clear blue lagoon at will.
