We were there for our honeymoon (of course) and were completely blown away by the beauty of this place. Being on its own motu gave you a sense of seclusion yet the sister hotel, Marara and the main island, was only a 2 min boat ride away. It's almost like having your own members only room at an event.

Let me assure you that the service is top-notch. Every single staff that we encountered was very friendly and outstanding. They did their very best to assure the guest are happy and comfortable. If we ever come back to Bora Bora, we would definitely stay here again and go for the under-water bungalows. It was an amazing experience. We were...

We stayed at the Sofitel Private Island for 5 nights; 3 of the nights were in a ‘luxury island lodge’ room, and 2 nights were in an overwater bungalow. I’ll include my thoughts about both room types in this same review. This will be a long review, so bear with me – but there are a lot of things to...

Very friendly staff. This place is SUPER quiet and private - just what we needed for our honeymoon. The open air restaurant is fantastic. Great snorkeling is within walking distance. The romantic dinner was an over the top experience!

We spent 3 days here when visiting Bora Bora, and found it to be an amazing experience from start to finish.

We stayed at the resort for 3 nights and expected service to be better or equal to Sofitel in Moorea. After all, it's Bora Bora. Our garden bungalow smelled musty, it was the sofa by the bay window. Because of termites, there was always a mess on the cabinet. They said they couldn't do anything about the termites except clean....

Actually, this place seemed better than Fantasy Island. After arriving on the dock, you up to the "lobby" with a spectacular elevated view of Bora Bora.
