    I love the small scale of the property. We came to relax and enjoy nature, not be overrun with people. This location is perfect!

    A magical place on a private island where your first step on and last step off will be memorable as you are greeted with warmth and music. The main resort is closed for renovation, if it were open it might have added pool, spa, shops, a distant view of the private island that we were staying on...

    What I love hotel, Staff was great , my room was clean, and Free boat shuttle. What needs improvement , food (should e different selection of breakfast every). Nightly entertainment . Update rooms . Better selection for lunch & dinner . Activities during day ( bora bora dancing lessons ), how to make baskets , pool table. And more beach activities . I was told by Expedia I would be able to use the pool at the other Sofitel hotel and that was. Not true , the sister hotel was under construction .

    Absolutely amazing experience

    The island is perfectly remote and the service was to notch. The staff really makes you feel at home and you get the personal touch, unlike some of the larger chain hotels. Couldn't be happier with our stay.

    The Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island was a dream come true. There is no better location in Bora Bora: views of the lagoon and Mount Otemanu, proximity to the Coral Gardens (which saves you on an expedition), and free trasnportation to the main island...you can't beat this. In addition, the overwater bungalows are exquisitely furnished. Although the weather and salt water can be damaging to structures, the management has done a great job maintaining the facilities. Lastly, the staff is superb. They were like family and made our vacation uniquely special. Thank you Pipi, Tarita, conch/ukelele/bags/beach attendant guy, Front Office Manager, and all the rest of the staff.
