My husband and I met by the beach in San Diego and had our wedding on the beach there as well, so it only seemed fitting that we were spend our honeymoon in Bora Bora, known to have some of the beast beaches, and most beautiful clear water in the world. We selected the Sofitel Motu because we had heard great things about it and it didn’t disappoint. One of the most amazing things about going to Bora Bora is the first view of the Island from the plane as you land at the airport which sits on a small private island of its own. As such, the hotel staff pick you up in a boat to take you there. The Sofitel staff greeted us and presented us with sea shell necklaces before boarding the boat. As we made our way to the hotel, we enjoyed the amazing views of Mount Otemanu and who can ignore the amazing water colors. On arrival at the hotel we were warmly greeted by staff who were playing traditional and singing traditional Tahitian music. We were immediately taken to our room where there was a bottle of champagne waiting for us, a sarong for me and a shirt for mu husband. Our overwater bungalow was very spacious and the see-through floor inside is a sight to see. We made our way to our patio and agreed that was really all we needed. We could have camped out on the bungalow patio for the entire week. And we practically did. We enjoyed many sunrises and sunsets from there that no photo could ever capture the beauty, although we tried mercilessly. Both the Motu and the Sofitel main hotel offer buffet style breakfast and dinner which we thoroughly enjoyed. And one afternoon when we went fishing, we brought back our catch, a wahoo, and the chef prepared us a wonderful meal. From the Motu you can enjoy one of the best snorkeling spots on the entire island, which we frequented many times as well as kayaking and swimming in the ocean, who needs a pool with how clear and warm this water is! The staff was always very attentive, our room always clean, and the resort seemed well-maintained. Though we were here 8 days, it seemed to go by so fast. We had the most romantic and unforgettable experience and we can’t wait to get back to Tahiti and her islands.
