Bora Bora Baby
The Sofitel in Bora was fantastic. They were renovating the overwater bungalows but you couldn’t even tell. The location is perfect for walking to dinner and the market. That location is valueable if you want local stuff and save some money. The beach is small but there were only about 10 other people there so it was perfect. The lagoon is beautiful and has reefs so you can snorkel right from the hotel. They give you fins and a mask for free so that’s great. Also, you can reserve a kayak for free and hit the coral gardens, which is near the Sofitel private island. (That’s a separate hotel across the lagoon from this Sofitel). It’s the perfect distance to kayak and see some of the best snorkeling in bora. All and all this place is fantastic, worth the price and is often time cheaper than other places on bora.

Would recommend Marara! Would love to come back.
The resort was great! Only complaint is the bugs and geckos in the room. Not sure how they get in but they did. The beach and pool were fantastic. The breakfast buffet was great, we looked forward to it every morning. Location was great 2500 francs to get to town on the taxi. We liked walking to Luckys for dinner. Some restaurants like St. James send a taxi to pick you up and drop you off. It only cost 400 francs. You can also do quite a bit of snorkeling off the shore and a 20 min kayak paddle gets you to the Coral garden for snorkeling. Spa was at the private island so we spent an afternoon and evening over there without having to pay triple the price to stay on the private island. We actually preferred the openness of Sofitel Marara over the more tightly developed Sofite private island.

My fiancé and I spent one night at Sofitel the first night we arrived in Bora Bora. It was pleasant, the place was quiet, and the service staff was very friendly and eager help.

Honeymoon in Paradise
From the moment we landed in the tiny airport in Bora Bora, we were greeted by a Sofitel employee and received our leis. We then jumped on to a motor boat and rode through the most beautiful sites either of us had ever seen. After 25 minutes or so, we got to the resort and were greeted by a couple more extremely nice and outgoing Sofitel employees. Check-in was a breeze and we were in our room within 15 minutes. Our room was beautiful and had a bottle of champagne and rose pedals waiting on our bed. By the 3rd day of our vacation all the employees already knew our names and we felt like family. The staff gives you privacy when you want it, and are there with whatever you request in minutes when you need it. The views from the room, pool and restaurant are out of this world. The restaurants and shows were great and fun. If you're planning your honeymoon or a big anniversary, look no further, this is where you want to be for your romantic getaway. We're definitely going back as soon as we can.
