Perfect Stay
The Sofitel was our third overwater bungalow of the week in our trip through French Polynesia, and in some ways it was the best. Thought the bungalows are small, they are well designed, and beautifully decorated. The outdoors space and the swim platform were well thought out as well. We were extremely pleased with the food on the private island, and would highly recommend ordering room service for breakfast, because the spread is fantastic. We felt welcome from the moment we arrived to the staff blowing a conch shell while the porter played the ukulele. The name "private island" really means private. It was nice to not see other people for a while, and if you needed to go ashore, it was fast and easy (and free) to get a boat to the main island. We loved our time here, and will not hesitate to go back on future trips. I don't know what you get at the St. Regis or Four Seasons for 3 times the money, but it couldn't possibly be worth the money by comparison.

Best value in Bora Bora for overwater rooms!
Wife and I stayed for 7 days on our honeymoon. Absolutely recommend Sofitel Private Island as the best value in Bora Bora for an overwater bungalow. The overwater bungalow was fantastic, great room with privacy and amazing view. Hotel staff was excellent and the food great. The Private Island gave us the relaxation and access to great snorkeling etc right from the deck of our room. The 7 min free boat ride took us to the main Sofitel resort for access to the pool if we wanted it. Only small negative I have is the AC in the room wasnt quite adequate for 2 of the 7 nights (we were there in the hottest season - and we like to sleep very cold). I would recommend to any friends or honeymooners looking for a romantic location to pick this hotel.

South Pacific Island dreams come true
Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island surpassed my dreams of the perfect south pacific holidays. 5 Star all the way. Lei airport greeting, private boat to our private island, welcoming team, over-the-water bungalow (ask for 114) with views of Mt Otemanu, secluded island with only 30 other units, free 5min boat shuttle, coral garden snorkeling on the backside of the island, free non-motorized water sports, including kayaking to the shark and sting ray feeding area, spa and tour coordination at competitive rates, free buffet breakfast, free stocked bungalow refrigerator. Staff was super friendly and helpful. My favorite part was snorkeling with black tip reef sharks safe and exhilarating. Sofitel knows how to fulfill a perfect getaway. This is the best hotel we have ever had the pleasure to stay. We will be back. My only suggestion is to eat lunch and dinner off the island ($$$$), but since the mainland is only 5 minutes away, where there are plenty of other options, including a free dinner shuttle to Bloody Mary's.
