The pool at the Marara Beach

The exotic Bora Bora Sofitel resort offers a traditional Tahiti vacation. With a touch of historical glamor in the fragrant island air!

The Sofitel resort is set on two spectacular locations. Legendary Sofitel Marara Beach is on the mainland of Bora Bora. And the more exclusive Sofitel Private Island is just off shore, on a tiny islet in the lagoon.

Bora Bora Sofitel Resort features:

Dazzling Scenery

Where else in the world can you be delighted by the aspect from everywhere? The incredible views from the Bora Bora Sofitel's beaches, bungalows, restaurants, and bars were thrilling.

And we were absolutely dazzled by the Private Island's 360° hill top views over the Bora Bora lagoon's changing blue hues.
