A little piece of paradise
We had an awesome time at Sofitel. We went for our honeymoon and everyone at the hotel was super courteous and nice. The views, the water, the marine life, in the hotel is amazing. The only negative thing (which wasn't too big of a deal since we only stayed 5 nights) is that there is only one hotel restaurant, and the menu doesn't change, so after 5 days we were starting to wish there was more variety. I highly recommend this hotel and looking forward to going back.

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.
