About Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island, Bora Bora

What's even better than a Bora Bora vacation? A Bora Bora vacation on a private island ringed by a sparkling turquoise lagoon. Just a 20-minute boat ride from Bora Bora Airport, Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island offers a magical setting for your romantic getaway. Picture this: White-sand beach, lush botanical garden, coral reef teeming with a rainbow of sea life. Plus sweeping views of the lagoon, the Polynesian sunset, and Mount Otemanu.

You could spend a sunny morning enjoying the free breakfast before strolling the island, taking in the 360-degree views. Afternoons, go for a swim or explore underwater wonders in the pristine lagoon. The resort has its own snorkel/scuba center - plus kayaking, jet skiing, windsurfing, swimming, and boat excursions. Or just relax with a good book - or a good friend - on the soft sands.

As your day draws to a close, you can look forward to French and international cuisine at the Manu Tuki restaurant. "Manu" means "bird" in Tahitian, and the setting is all about nature: fresh-air dining, panoramic views of the lagoon and Mt. Otemanu. Breakfast and lunch are served here, too. You can request in-room dining 24 hours a day. Cap your evening with a cocktail on the Mako Bar terrace overlooking the beach.

Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island offers just 31 rooms, for a real sense of seclusion. An overwater bungalow, a lagoon-view villa, or a spacious guestroom in the lodge - it's up to you. All feature large furnished terraces, signature Sofitel MyBeds, sofa beds, plasma TVs, and complimentary minibars that are stocked daily. Wireless Internet access is also complimentary. Bathrooms come with rainfall showerheads and luxury bath products by Roger & Gallet of Paris.
