Why We Like it:
Sofitel Bora Bora is an intimate, adults only, private island resort with crystal clear waters and coral gardens just two minutes boat ride from the southern end of the main Island, or a 30 minutes boat shuttle direct from Bora Bora Airport.
It has just 30 bungalows & villas and so is very much a boutique resort, and most certainly a place for peace, quiet, calm and contentment. Especially given that the entire island is child free – the only adults only overwater resort in Bora Bora.
Overwater Bungalows & Other Accommodation:
This intimate oasis is particularly geared towards couples and honeymooners and so all its accommodation choices are doubles.
There are two types of villa on offer; twenty classic overwater bungalows out on the lagoon and ten more private jungle lodges surrounded by trees and overlooking the water.
Both are roughly the same size, and at around 370 ft² are relatively small. They all come with king size bed as standard though, as well as a living space, an outdoor terrace/sun lounge and private access to the water.
Expect all standard luxury hotel mod cons here, and excellent room service. Concierge services are available too, and happy to oblige all sorts of requests.

Resort Facilities & Things to Do:
You can enjoy gourmet Polynesian and French food, as well as quality French wines (it has an extensive wine cellar), at the Manu Tuki Restaurant. It has a very lovely setting, with views over the peaceful lagoon, and of the towering Mount Otemanu away in the distance.
Moving on from there you can enjoy some beautifully crafted cocktails, and other drinks at the cosy Mako Bar, which has similarly beautiful views from its wooden terrace and also serves food and snacks throughout the day.
If you want to make any day or evening extra special all sorts of romantic extras are available, such as gourmet dining on the beach or sunset champagne evenings with traditional Polynesian dance shows.
Private, bespoke arrangements can also be made, for the above or for any other suitably romantic gesture you have in mind; the concierge team are always happy to assist.
Sofitel is its own private island and is a delightfully relaxing place to wander around. The resort is peaceful enough at the best of times but you don’t have to wander far to find extra solitude, and the feeling that the island is yours and yours alone.
There is a Holistic Spa Center at Sofitel Bora Bora too. There you can indulge in a range of holistic therapies, nurturing body treatments, restorative massages and various wellness activities.
More lively activities such as snorkeling, diving, underwater scooter rides, jet skiing, jeep safaris and boat tours, as well as feeding, and swimming with, sharks, manta rays and sting rays can also all be easily arranged via the concierge.

“Heaven on earth – The best location for a honeymoon! Coral garden was very close to our bungalow by swimming/kayaking and it was fantastic! Polynesian massage is a must-try. Extremely friendly and smiling personnel at all times! Maururu for everything!…”
